Yearning for the Living God by F. Enzio Busche

This was pretty good-it had some excellent and some unusual moments. Not the best GA biography I've ever read, but certainly worth the time.

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Ack. This was a trainwreck. I didn't think anything could live up to Twilight, but this wasn't even in the same ballpark. Ack.

The Honey Thief by Elizabeth Graver

This book was average in a mediocre sort of way.

Twilight by Stephenie [sic] Meyer

This is way high on the list of best books that I have ever read. The strange thing is: I cannot really figure out why. I wouldn't say that the writing was extraordinary, the plot was somewhat predictable, and did I mention that it was about vampires? But there was something about this story that just sucked (ha!) me in. I think the vampire backdrop serves as an extraordinarily good metaphor for teenage angst--maybe that was it. In any case, this one is highly recommended.

Intuition by Allegra Goodman

This is an excellent novel: an engaging story with interesting thoughts on science, gender, politics, etc. Recommended.

Theodore Rex by Edmund Morris

Bah. This is the second time that I have gotten hundreds of pages into a biography of Theodore Roosevelt only to decide that I hated it (despite a few interesting anecdotes).

I suppose TR just isn't my guy.
