may books

Hurray! No more school, no more internship.

Bridget Jones’s Diary, Helen Fielding- v.g.

Solstice Wood, Patricia McKillip- I was in the mood for urban fantasy and it really hit the spot. It feels very American and young adultish.

Dragonhaven, Robin McKinley- It reads more like a blog than a novel. There wasn’t very much in the way of conversation, but there was A LOT about what it’s like to be mother to a baby dragon, and how much pain and suffering is involved, but also how good it is to watch something grow up and develop a personality. There’s also a really interesting theme about the differences between human language and dragon telepathy via emotions and images.

The Name of the Rose, Umberto Eco- Really good writing. Monks. Medieval philosophy. Political games. Mystery. Murder. History.  This book makes my head hurt (in a good way).
