Book Reviews

pile of book

Johannes Jansson/

During my final semester at TWU I took a course about children’s and young adult literature which required me to write blog reviews of a lot of books. Since finishing the class I decided to gather all the other book reviews I have written and put them here. I hope to keep writing reviews as I read, though I probably won’t review every book I read. I’ll add the reviews here and put an * next to the ones I especially like.

Young Adult Books

  1. *The Wednesday Wars (historical fiction)
  2. Dead End in Norvelt (historical fiction)
  3. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (historical gay fiction? I don’t really know how to classify this one)

  5. Paper Towns (general fiction)
