Favorite Book of the Month:

I just love Neil Gaiman. I know it’s weird that I hadn’t yet read this book, especially since I read M is for Magic ages ago, which contains a short story that he then expanded into this novel. But there it is. I really enjoyed the spookiness of this book – the atmosphere is just so great! I loved learning all about the ghosts who live in this graveyard and of the way this supernatural world works. Seeing things through Bod’s eyes was very interesting and I really enjoyed listening to the audio, too! Gaiman read it, which I love because his voice is amazing.

Least Favorite Book of the Month:

I know this book is a Prince Honor book, but I just didn’t really get into it. I had to read it for a class, otherwise I don’t think I ever would have picked it up. I’ve not read anything else by Donnelly, but I didn’t find her writing style to be very interesting to me. It wasn’t bad, but it just didn’t wow me, either. I also found the book to be very slow and uneventful. I don’t really read much historical fiction, but this wouldn’t have been a time period I would naturally be drawn to. I won’t not recommend it, because I do think it is a good book, it’s just not for me.

How about you?
