Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

9/10 - My beloved Edward is back! Unfortunately, he brought that annoying Bella character with him. Okay, so I think I'm too attached to the characters in this series. I really liked this one, it brought back all the good stuff from both Twilight and New Moon with only a tough of the incessant whining that drove me nuts in New Moon. Now I can't wait to read the next one, Breaking Dawn, and to see the movie that comes out 12/12! This will be the first series I've ever read start to finish since The Chronicles of Narnia when I was 13.

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

10/10 - Wonderful, simple, and elegant. It was a little bit Practical Magic and a little bit Sleeping With the Enemy. I'm really looking forward to Allen's second book, Sugar Queen, now. This book made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Very satisfying.

Slaughter-house Five by Kurt Vonnegut

4/10 - This book makes me feel like my brain has been whisked in a bowl with milk and then poured into a frying pan and scrambled. That's about the best I can come up with. Why do I keep trying to read classics? It just makes me feel like I'm out of the loop, like I'm missing something. So it goes.
