Either way, in 2013 I've managed to read two pretty decent books. Here are my reviews:
By: Roald Dahl
Rating on Goodreads: *** of *****
I remember in third grade I heard a lot about this book. I'd tell people I hadn't read it, and they'd gasp.
So after a million years, I finally sat down and I've got to say, it was cute. Not much else to say about it.
I feel that if I'd read it years ago, I would have loved it. The ending (literally, the very last line) was very clever. If you're looking for something magical and uplifting, this is a quick read.

Rating on Goodreads: **** of *****
This book was incredibly well written. From the very first sentence you're sucked into Rhine's horrible world. I didn't expect to feel as nauseous as I did the entire book. This is NOT a novel to make you feel uplifted.
The only real thing I had an issue with was the ending, it felt a bit too rushed for me to give this a five star rating. Though it's a trilogy so I'm excited to read the next one.
Are you my friend on Goodreads yet? You should be :)
