January Book Reviews

It's Book Review Time!

Here are the books I've read this month.
I'd love to receive lots of comments telling me what books you guys have read lately!

Heir ApparentHeir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What an interesting and unique book! The girl goes to play a "total immersion" video game and when the equipment is damaged she has to win the game or she may die - for real. I really liked this book. It seems like it would be kind of weird but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1)Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the 1st half of the book where Ender is in Battle School. I still enjoyed the whole book but the 2nd half brought my rating from 5 stars down to 4. I don't really know why but I didn't like it as much. I'll probably read the sequel sometime.


 The Missing (Seasons of Grace, #2)The Missing by Beverly Lewis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I liked this book - can't wait to read the finale.

The Telling (Seasons of Grace, #3)The Telling by Beverly Lewis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book made me think a lot about repenting and forgiving. The forgiving part seemed to come so easily to these Amish characters. It made me want to work more on forgiving others so readily.


  1. I love Beverly Lewis books but the covers all look so much alike that I always forget which ones I've read :) I should probably start a list or something.

    The Heir Apparent looks good too. Thanks for the reviews!

  2. I loved Ender's game! I remember reading it in high school. I haven't read any Beverly Lewis ones. I just may need to. These ones look good. Love hearing about what your reading:>
