Failed reading 100 books this year, but 96 is pretty good so I don't feel too bad about not making it. I think if I hadn't of had a migraine the last 2 days I might have met the goal. Smaller goal for next years reading challange.
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Yes some parts of this story are a little depressing and bleak but...because its told from the perspective of a horse, you get a better idea what they go through in life, which can be dark but there are times of happiness as well. I can't even remember how many times I have read this story, I loved it as a kid, reading it again now tho I can see how dark some parts can be and not much has changed sadly in the treatment of animals. Still, its a good story and you really start to care what happens to Beauty.
Fortress in the Eye of Time by C.J. Cherryh
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Slow, boring, pointless characters, confusing plot. Why does this get as high of a rating here as it does? I'm all for long epic fantasy, but this book is just boring and I only kept reading thinking it might get better. It didn't. And there are 4 more in the series, def. not going to be reading those.
