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!

Gorgeous - Paul Rudnick A good concept for a story, but the writing was a little dull. I found myself skimming over a lot of it, but I loved how this was a modern, twisted fairy tale that reminded me of the Grimm brothers, with a wry sense of humor. Some parts of the story seemed a little implausible, a little unrealistic, but so do the best fairy tales.
