November Book Reviews

I got behind again, sad times D:

Death of a Salesman
Author: Arthur Miller
Genre: play, drama
Rating: 2/5
Summary: The tragedy of a typical American--a salesman who at the age of 63 is faced with what he cannot face: defeat and disillusionment.
My thoughts: School read. I really didn't like this play. It was boring and I didn't feel like the characters were very relatable. It was really disappointing to me because I had high expectations for an Arthur Miller play.

Title: Tris's Book
Author: Tamora Pierce
Genre: YA, fantasy
Rating: 5/5
Summary: Tris and her friends from Winding Circle Temple are just learning to control their magic; now they must use it to protect the coast of Emelan from a deadly pirate attack.
My thoughts: Reread. Tris has always been my favorite character of the quartet so of course I've always loved this book. It's exciting and I can never seem to stop myself reading it!

Title: Daja's Book
Author: Tamora Pierce
Genre: YA, fantasy
Rating: 5/5
Summary: While traveling in a drought and fire-stricken part of the country with her fellow students and their mentors, the young people's magical talents somehow become intertwined, leading Daja, who is linked to the element of fire and the craft of smithing, to create a seemingly living vine out of metal. Nomadic Traders recognize the vine as a powerful object and take the complicated ritual steps required to purchase it from Daja. Having been cast out by the Trader class as a young child when her family's ship sank, she is seen as a source of bad luck to be avoided at all costs. During the negotiations, she must come to terms with the part of her that still yearns for her past life, and her growing power as a mage.
My thoughts: Reread. This is the book I was really looking forward to rereading out of the whole quartet. Daja is probably my second favorite character of the four and I really couldn't remember much of this book. Just thinking about it makes me smile :D


I tend to avoid Y/A stories, but I might check out Daja's book anyway.
