Enna Burning

by Shannon Hale (read August 2006)
This author can write a good story! This month I've been fortunate enough to read all three of her novels. They are great not just for young adults, but all of us who are older. Enna Burning is the sequel to Goose Girl. Let me just tell you what my daughter says about these novels, "They have everything: romance, mystery, drama and fantasy." This novel focuses on Enna and they tough choices she has to make concerning friendship, loyalty, love, country and self.
This book rates a 5 out of 5.

Hi Booklogged,

I apologise that my comment has nothing to do with your heartfelt post today but to say that I just read you on Lotus Read's Blyton post and since...

"...I can hear the child in your heart still skipping, I would suggest that time has stopped for you...just so that another door in your heart may be opened for Enid Blyton to walk in, into your already memoried roomful of books."

love

I've found that good books are good books regardless of the "age suggestions." Children's books that are really good can be read with pleasure by adults. Good young adult books are quickly adopted by readers of all ages.

THANK YOU! :)

You know I'm pretty open minded, but they do look like they're written for Young FEMALE Adults. Am I right?

booklogged said...

They are aimed at young FEMALE reader's. It's interesting how girl's and boys (men and women) alike can read Harry Potter, but maybe not these. Hale is coming out with a male hero book in Sep.

can't wait until my daughter is old enough to share novels with me as well! my little guy is almost through with the existing "magic tree house" books, and we dish over the historical facts within. love it!

Lotus Reads said...

Thanks, booklogged for these wonderful book suggestions - I am always on the lookout for books that my kids and I can both read. I am toying with the idea of starting a mom-daughter book club and am busy making a list of suitable titles. Your suggestions sure help a lot!

Bellezza said...

I have not read any of this series; I'm currently in the opposite of FEMALE literature because I've immersed myself in Lonesome Dove...all GUYS. But, I am interested in your review, and the novels you introduce me too.

How's Rebecca coming along? ;)

Framed said...

Sounds delightful. I plan on reading Goose Girl soon

booklogged said...

Melissa, I had never heard of the 'magic tree house' books until your comment, then today I read something else about them. I think I bet look into them.

Lotus, so fun to hear from you again. Does this mean you are home from your travels? A mother-daughter book clubs sounds wonderful.

Bellezza, it's interesting how much easier it is for women to read guy literature and not so easy for guy's to read female stuff. Althought, I think if they could these books would be good ones. They are definitely not Chic Lit.

Framed, I'm anxious to hear what you think of this series.

Hello!
Glad you found my other comment.
Oh WBS=Write Back soon. Yeah an abrreviation from my grade school years:)
Thanks for adding me to your blog roll:)
Heather:)

Bellezza said...

You bring up an interesting point: it's easier for women to read guy stuff than for them to read girl stuff. I wonder, seriously, why that is? Do we just try to please more? It's a thought provoking comment you made.

Glad you liked them. I purchased these for my wife as she loves YA lit even more than I and I LOVE the cover art. I have read Goose Girl and it was fantastic and am partially through Enna Burning. If you haven't yet I encourage you to visit her site:

www.squeetus.com

and read her blog. She has some wonderful blog entries and keeps up with it pretty regularly.

booklogged said...

Carl, glad to hear that you read and enjoyed Goose Girl. That helps Bellezza and I with our query about guys reading novels with femal leads. It can and does happen. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I'm on my way to your wife's site right now.

Bookworm and Bellezza, as always I enjoy your comments and your blogs. It's fun to make new reading friends.

booklogged said...

Carl, I guess I misunderstood. I thought squeetus was your wife's blog, but now I see that it is Shannon Hale's blog. I bookmarked it and will be visiting it some more. Thank-you for the reference.

Carl V. said...

Easy mistake as that is what my sentence reads like...ah, the joys of not proof reading! Yes, Shannon's site is fantastic. Looks like she has several new books in the works (I believe Austenland is her first for adults) and I look forward to reading them all.
