books and cleverness

I read books of all sorts, but mostly kids' lit and young adult literature and speculative fiction for all ages—usually from a feminist perspective. 

 

I've adopted a personalized version of the CHOICE reviews approach to recommendations/star ratings:

***** = Essential, a.k.a. truly love, absolute must-read, buy it now
**** = Highly Recommended, a.k.a. this is a really good book; I would buy it as a gift
*** = Recommended, a.k.a. pretty good; worth reading
** = Optional, a.k.a. meh
* = Not Recommended; a.k.a. this is not a good book

Sisters Red

Sisters Red - This was not a very good book. All the characters were single-note, and said (or yelled) the same things many times over. The plot went like this: description of handsome men who are werewolves, fight scene, desire scene, description of handsome men who are werewolves, fight scene, desire scene....repeat until the end.
