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.
First, I need to thank whoever donated this novel to the Mendon Public Library so that I could discover it at the bag sale. I went into A Single Shot prepared for a sub-par story that I was reading just to waste time; but Jones’ story did not waste my time at all. I could not read this novel fast enough.
I’ll be honest, I was not entirely sure how to review this book and it is all over the place. I wanted to learn more about Walt Disney and found this book by Neal Gabler that documented his entire life.
