Ruta Sepetys has written three books, all of which are young adult historical fiction. Although she writes in what may seem like a specific niche, Sepetys draws in readers of all ages and interests. I have read all three of her novels and loved each one equally. Out of the Easy is Sepetys second novel.
Shadows of the Workhouse is the second book in Jennifer Worth’s, The Midwife Trilogy. As usual, I did not know the book I was reading was a part of a series, so I did not read Call the Midwife first. I can assure you that I am on the wait list for it on Overdrive now though!
While going through the notes I took while reading Paper Towns, I realized that only about 5-6 of the notes were positive. I guess I disliked this novel more than I thought. Paper Towns is John Green’s third book. The Fault in Our Stars is his fifth. I haven’t read The Fault in Our Stars but from what I’ve heard, I’m assuming it is much better than Paper Towns.
Reviewing No Fears, No Excuses is a little difficult for me because it took me months to read it. I’m not saying it’s not an informational, good quality book, but I definitely struggled to get through it. Luckily, no one was on the waiting list for it on the Monroe County Library System website, so I was able to re-download it after it expired multiple times.
Lisa Wingate has written over 30 novels, many of which are in series of three to six books. The Prayer Box is the first of six books in Carolina Heirlooms. Although it is a part of a series, the book can be read by itself; so you don’t have to feel obligated to read through all of them because they end in cliffhangers.
