The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, 3/5 Stars
The book really grew on me after I read it. I continued to think about the way that it was written and the things that happened and I became a greater fan than when I first read it. Admittedly, I struggled to get through it for a great while and it took me much longer than a week to read. However, I'd recommend it if you have the time to stick with it.
27/52: The Fifth Mountain by Paulo Coelho, 1.5/5 Stars
Uninspiring. Really. I really enjoy following Coelho on the social networks; his quips are always inspiring and thought-provoking. But, ever since The Alchemist, very few of his longer works captivate me.
