The Poppy War

Kuang, R. F.
First volume in a series. Pretty long fantasy taking place in a China-like country. Not painful to read so I shall continue with the second volume post-haste.

Hanging Woman Creek

L'Amour, Louis
The author has cranked out a zillion of these 150 page books, and they are great little stories. And no sex, very little cussing, if any, but a bit of violence. In this one, "Pronto" Pike gets beat up and left for dead by vigilantes and falls in love with an Irish girl. I wonder why the bad guy who was detailed to kill him did not do it, though?

Quote:

..."He told me he never knew how sick he was until he was snowed in one winter with a Home medical Advisor, and read it cover to cover. If it hadn't been for that book, he might have lived a long life in bad health without knowing it." -- (pg. 14)

Eight Keys

LaFleur, Suzanne
Elise starts off badly in sixth grade at middle school, but eventually things get better. An extremely charming story. Parts of it seemed very familiar, like I had read a galley edition, but I would have noted that before. Odd. So I enjoyed it very much. But I'd like to know what the deal is with Amanda. Maybe a sequel?
