Micro-Reviews
Crossed, by Ally Condie (Audio) [rating:3]
This one wandered literally and figuratively for me. It definitely suffered from middle-book-in-a-trilogy syndrome.
The Giver, by Lois Lowry (Audio) [rating:5]
Excellent dystopian middle grade book about memory. Perfect in almost every way.
Harriet the Spy, by Louise Fitzhugh (Audio) [rating:5]
This is one of my top favorite middle grade books of all time. It is also perfect in practically every way.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, by J.K. Rowling (Audio) [rating:5]
A fantastic introduction to the world of Harry Potter (and the mind of J.K. Rowling). As marvelous on audio as it is in print.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, by J.K. Rowling (Audio) [rating:3]
This is one of my least favorite Harry Potter books. But it’s still good.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, by J.K. Rowling (Audio) [rating:5]
Excellent yarn complete with time travel and a mysterious murderer. Probably my favorite of the Harry Potter series.

Azkaban is my favorite story in the HP series. Deathly Hallows is my favorite book thought just because it wraps everything up. And, Chamber is my least favorite book too.
And, Crossed was definitely a 2nd in a trilogy book.

Yes, there is a certain charm to DEATHLY HALLOWS, but I think the first half of it really wandered. :)
