Friday Fifteen

This week, Friday could not have come at a better time. Here are this week’s book reviews in fifteen words or fewer:

1. Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
A lot of depth and heart in this one. Gave me Friday Night Lights feelings.

2. The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events #2) by Lemony Snicket
One of the more formulaic, but the writing continues to be fun and propulsive

3. A History of the World in 10½ Chapters by Julian Barnes
Collection of loosely linked stories. Well crafted and stayed with me more than I expected.

4. The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
I wish all mice cared about chivalry. Charming kind of Don Quixote for kids.

5. Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel
Frankly, I thought Frog could do a little better.
