Blood Rites (Dresden Files #6)

Blood Rites (The Dresden Files, #6)Blood Rites by Jim Butcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dresden goes through more crap, has the worst luck ever, then finds he actually does have a family. Nicely done, Jim Butcher. Nicely done.

The Pirate and the Pagan

The Pirate and the PaganThe Pirate and the Pagan by Virginia Henley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This silly book is one of my "guilty pleasure" books. I love the English history she weaves into the story, the descriptions of court, and the pirates. I'm a sucker for a good pirate story.

The Eleventh Plague

The Eleventh PlagueThe Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It was just ok. The plot and characters were underdeveloped and it felt like fleshing out both would have made it a trilogy, and potentially more enjoyable. Not great, not terrible.

The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story

The Astronaut Wives Club: A True StoryThe Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story by Lily Koppel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I liked this book, although I wanted to love this book. It was almost like gossiping with someone at a party; the stories were short and lacking in detail, but interesting if you love reading about the space race. I only recommend it if you already know a lot about the astronaut corps and the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, otherwise I think it would be hard to keep all of the wives straight.

Endless Night

Endless NightEndless Night by Agatha Christie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought I owned and had read every Agatha Christie book, but somehow I missed this one. It's quite unlike her other work. The first 3/4 of the book is about the main character's relationship, courtship, and marriage, then boom! Typically Christie plot twist. All of the pieces fell together. She really was the master of mystery.
