Quick Thoughts on Recent Library Reads 06/04/13

A wonderfully written, mysterious read with some very interesting twists. 
I really enjoyed the 16 year old narrator, Nao. I missed her when the book was over.
Just when I thought I had this book figured out…nope.
Frozen in Time by Mitchell Zuckoff
Plane crashes. Survival. The triumph of the human spirit and some VERY courageous men.  
Stuck for months on an ice cap? Thanks, I’ll pass.
The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester
The Oxford English Dictionary and a murderer? Who knew!? This is a juicy tale full of big words. LOVE.
Wha wha what??
Girlchild by Tupelo Hassman
Hello. I’m Girlchild. I will tear the heart right out of your chest, throw it on the floor, and 
STOMP ALL OVER IT.
Whyyyyyy?!?

Have you read any of these? All four were winners. I can’t pick a favorite and you can’t make me!

  1. Love your gifs, as always! I definitely want to read the two novels on your list, but The Professor and the Madman I've been putting off for a few years already, I think, so what's a few more? I don't plan to read Frozen in Time; reading reviews is enough to give me the gist!

  2. I had the same reaction to Frozen in Time. What they went through is my version of Hell. Great book, though. I loooooved The Professor and the Madman when I read it years ago. I think I need to reread that at some point.

  3. I think I would have lasted all of 10 minutes. Yes, great book :)Professor is a book I'd probably re-read as well. I think he has another on the same topic…minus the whole murderer angle. I could be wrong but I think I heard that somewhere.

  4. Love these posts of yours. I'm curious about Girlchild, given what you've said. I haven't heard of it before.
