Lost in the Stacks

I read widely and compulsively and my fancies are ever changing. My love of reading, however, is no mere fancy.

The Stress of Her Regard
Tim Powers
Progress: 480/960 minutes
Fever 1793 - Laurie Halse Anderson This is a good piece of young adult historical fiction. The heroine could use a little fleshing out, and a little more spunk (she is NO Charlotte Doyle, let me tell you!) I found many of the early interpersonal conflicts a bit cliche, as was the set up, but the introduction to the history of Philadelphia in the first days of the Republic made the book very interesting and I can't wait to read more about that era.
