The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly

10/10 - This book was VERY dark and VERY gory! Don't read it at night when you are by yourself. That could be VERY detrimental to your blood pressure. However, it was also VERY interesting and VERY creative. Are you VERY sick of me writing VERY in all caps yet? I really enjoyed this book, but it's not for the faint of heart. Imagine if Stephen King was into writing fairy tales, that's what this book is like.

Zorro by Isabel Allende

6/10 - Although this story had it's entertaining moments, I found it to be rather cheesy and drawn-out. There was a lot of background at the beginning that didn't end up to be of any importance to the story. Too much at the front and not enough at the back of the story if that makes sense. I was expecting a lot more action and romance, and ended up with a lot of build-up to a flat climax. A rating of "I read it, it was okay" is a perfect description.
