I Did a Book Review

The 100 questions are getting lamer and lamer, so I may just give up on them, even though they do get me writing.

I think I mentioned I signed up for Goodreads a while back, and have been inspired to read the 200 or so fiction books on my Kindle, sprinkled through the fan fiction on it.  I keep the non-fiction on my Kindle Fire.  I read a lot.  🙂  So I moved all the books to a Books folder.  I am just so darn clever.  I don’t think I’ll ever get a job as a book reviewer, because I can’t always find my words.  Anyway, this is the latest book I read, and here’s the review.

The Illegal GardenerThe Illegal Gardener by Sara Alexi

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book starts out small and almost seems uninteresting. An illegal immigrant trying to get day-labor work, and as you continue reading, it sort of blossoms out, like a flower. Growing from the small beginning into a beautiful work that keeps growing, layer after layer. The narrative is mesmerizing, I felt drawn further and further into the story. I think this is the only book I’ve given five stars. Get past the first chapter and you won’t be able to put it down.
