Ninth House is Worth a Pledge

Ninth House

Ninth House

By: Leigh Bardugo

Ninth House was probably my most anticipated book of the year. It’s one of my favorite authors making the jump from YA to Adult. Although I admit I find that line really blurred already especially in Bardugo’s case.

Strong but flawed heroine, ghosts, magic, creepy towns and an ages old murder mystery mixed in with a current murder was right up my alley and perfect for this time of year.

Intriguing but Flawed: A Novel Bookstore

A Novel Bookstore

By: Laurence Cossé

Grade: B-

Two people decide to team up in Paris and open a bookstore that sells only “good” books. Books chosen by a special and secret committee to wade through all novels. You would think this would be a great thing and for a little while it is. Only soon the bookstore is under siege from jealous rivals, idiots who think their trying to tell them what to read and just generally people who get their nose in a twist at anything.

Which doesn’t seem like a big deal until someone starts attacking the “secret” committee members.
