lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

Oleander Girl - Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni Chitra Divakaruni's writing keeps getting better. I found this to be my favorite book of hers so far, especially since she didn't succumb to certain plot twists I was sure she would do, and it wasn't overwritten with flowery sentiments like her earliest books. I thought the ending was a little too neat and tidy, but I enjoyed it anyway.
