Review of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS-John Green

Why did it take me so long to read this book?  The critics all loved it, it was a New York Times Bestseller and several friends recommended it, but finally I bought and read it... and fell in love.  I fell in love with smart-talking Hazel and her perfect match, Augustus, and didn't want the book to end.  I don't want to give away any of the plot, so all I will say is:  4 Elves - Highly Recommended.

Review of WAKE by Amamda Hocking

I really enjoyed this author's Trylle trilogy, so I read her recent book with anticipation.  Her book idea is an interesting concept, and I liked her characters Gemma, Harper, Alex and Daniel, but the conclusion felt too rushed and not very satisfying.  I would have liked to see more development of Penn, Lexie and Thea; they felt a bit one-dimensional, but maybe that will come in future books. 3 Elves - Recommended
