Book Reviews: Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!

I have been exceptionally negligent about my blog posts for several weeks now and I'm sorry! I just had more fun, interesting, and compelling things to do with my time.  OK. Maybe I'm not that sorry.  But I'm sorry you missed me, so I got up this morning and decided that I needed to get caught up on my book reviews.

Book Review: The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty

(4/5 stars) The third book on the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge is "A classic of genre fiction," and after scrolling through their list of suggestions, I decided this would be a good one to pick up.  Everyone is probably familiar with the story because the movie is superfamous. The book is pretty much the same with a few additional details.  I wish it weren't so familiar because the book is really well put together and it would probably be a thrill to experience the story for the first time through this book.

Book Review: Wisp of a Thing (Tufa #2) by Alex Bledsoe

Summary: (3/5 stars) I thoroughly enjoyed the first of the Tufa novels, but even though this book had a lot of the same color and tone of the first book, it didn't manage to recapture the magic. I think it's probably because the main character is different and the overarching conflict between the two fairy families doesn't expand in a very satisfying way. I think there are five of these books and I'll keep reading, but now without the same anticipation.
