Our summer reading program is over and we have survived! Instead of extended book reviews, I bring you annotations of a selection of my summer reads.


Picture The Bear: A Novel by Claire Cameron

Claire Cameron's tightly-written tale of a little girl, her family and a bear is exciting, horrifying and and emotionally wrought. 4 Stars

Picture Help For the Haunted by John Searles

A tortured girl tells a tortured tale that strives for suspense but only achieves mediocrity. 2 Stars

Picture Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris
In her new fun and fast-paced urban fantasy, Harris's vibrant characters more than make up for a slightly predictable plot. 4 Stars
Picture Here We Are Now: The Lasting Impact of Kurt Cobain by Charles R. Cross
A weak attempt by an obsessed fan to remain relevant despite the passage of time. 1 Star
Picture Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
A wildly imaginative and highly entertaining re-imagining of The Wizard of Oz that is slightly marred by a disappointingly predictable romantic subplot. 4 Stars
Picture The Severed Streets by Paul Cornell
In the second book in his Shadow Police series, Paul Cornell continues to create a unique world filled with brilliantly drawn characters and a flawless and fast-paced plot. 5 Stars
Picture Shattered by Kevin Hearne
In the seventh book in his Iron Druid Chronicles series, Hearne stumbles slightly while developing a female character but rights himself with an exciting plot and a new witty character in the form of Atticus's ancient teacher. 4 Stars
