The wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

Witches. Love'em, hate'em, they aren't all covered in warts, green and really old. You know over 40. Terry Pratchett, author of the Discworld series introduces us to teen age witch Tiffany Aching who has to team up with the Wee Free Men, a clan of six-inch-high blue men, to rescue her baby brother and ward off a sinister invasion from Fairyland.

SORTA LIKE THE FAIRY TALE…BUT NOT

 

Modernized Fairy Tales seem to be everywhere these days: on TV, at the movies (2 Snow Whites!) and in books. I really liked these two and think the writer has a chance to help us all live happily ever after if she will just keep on writing!

SISTERS RED

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

DeliriumThe premise of Delirium intrigued me from the beginning.  The idea of love and other emotions as part of a mental illness or human weakness had been well played out in classic dystopian literature and film, but I was interested in Oliver's take on the subject. It proved to be worth my time.
