feb books

OMG. The Project Runway reunion show is HILARIOUS. BEST THING EVER. It also made my Zulema hate flare up and I officially think Daniel Franco is creepy. Also, what was up with Guadalupe? She was drunk or stoned. Probably both. Oh man. That was SO MUCH fun.

Anyway, books! Here’s my update for February…

03. General’s Daughter by Nelson DeMille, 512 p
I am loving Nelson DeMille’s books right now. This is an engaging and actually, really sad military detective story. I loved all the layers to the mystery and just COULD NOT put it down. Highly recommended.
04. School of Dreams by Edward Humes, 400 p
I only read this book because it’s about my former high school (a small public magnet school in southern CA — Whitney High). I wanted to see what a journalist would have to say about WHS after spending a year amongst the students. It definitely didn’t capture *my* high school experience but that’s not what it’s about. Instead, the book is a study about the reasons for Whitney’s success and why its students do so well. It’s an interesting read.
05. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray, 432 p
This was recced to me by Sarah. It was a much darker book than I thought it would be but I loved it. My only complaint is that some things aren’t fully explained (ie. the purpose of the Order and what Gemma means to them) but I assume that’s because this book was always meant to have a sequel. I don’t know if I can wait for Rebel Angels to be released in paperback — I want some answers!

Right now I’m reading another Nelson DeMille book called Spencerville. So far, so good. 🙂
