Weekly Book Wrap Up

IslandIsland by Aldous Huxley
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Pretty much a philosophical essay trying to come across as a story. And it doesn't work.

NimonaNimona by Noelle Stevenson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really enjoyed this. Simple cutesy/indie art style. A few funny moments but would have liked more back story on Nimona herself.

The Mammoth Book of Alternate HistoriesThe Mammoth Book of Alternate Histories by Ian Watson
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

DNF I tried to finish this, I really did, and normally I love alternate history stories, but after 268 pages I had to give up. I found the stories just boring and nothing new.

i really like your choice of books - it's interesting to see what you read. I have four books on my nightstand right now I pick up here and there.

I get bored reading the same types of books so have to read a lot of different genres :)

I am sad the alternate history book was not a winner. I am a big fan of alternate histories too.
