|What does this photo have to do with my book review? Nothing at all.|
They did, however, suggest I pick up The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale and I've had a few friends suggest it as well, so I grabbed it from the library last week.
As I feel about most fantasy, this book was good except for the liberal use of vowels in the made-up nouns. Gosh, such a pet peeve of mine. The main character's name is Anidori. I mean, seriously. That was my thing with The Hunger Games, too. I mean, Peeta? Anyway. Back to The Goose. Plot line was pretty good, I wasn't captivated but I wasn't repulsed.
If you enjoy strong female characters, fairy-tale romances and animals, you'll like this book a lot. I did pick up the sequel and I'm trying to decide if it's worth the time to read. I'll try it out.
I started reading I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak and it was super good, but a little too profanity-y for me.
I'm headed to the library soon, so if you've read anything awesome lately, let me know!
