Thoughts on the books I'm reading. Mostly young adult, but some adult and younger grade readers as well.
Book reviews of YA lit and more
As a middle school librarian and hopeful reader of Missouri's high school award books (Gateway nominees), I am reading and reviewing as many young adult and middle grade novels as I can while working on my own writing for this age group.

Adventurers Wanted: Slathbog's Gold- M.L. Forman
I think I could sum up this book in two words: The Hobbit. I felt like I was rereading Tolkien the whole way through. Yes, there are some differences in plot; however, I feel like for the differences The Hobbit was much better. For fantasy lovers that need another book with elves, dwarfs, wraiths, and a quest this would work, but it doesn't really offer anything special or different.
