A Friday Five (#2)


Each Friday I'll feature one of my favorite books or a book I read in the last week and come up 5 words to describe it.  View it as a super mini review.  This week I'm featuring Changeling (The Order of Darkness #1) by Philippa Gregory.

I picked this book because finished it in the last week.  My five words are:
  1. average
  2. clumsy
  3. curious
  4. dull
  5. old-fashioned
So clearly you can see I didn't love it.  I didn't hate it, and I think the word average perfectly sums this up.  The vast majority of the book was pretty o.k., but the end made my eyes roll so badly I got a headache.  Average: perfectly sums this up, I really only needed this one word.  Clumsy: I haven't read any of her adult historical novels, but I can't imagine they would fall into this category, but this one did.  There were some good parts, bad parts, and it just kind of stumbled along. Curious: This kind of just describes the journey that the characters are on.  Dull:  The whole things was just kind of dull.  Old-fashioned: There was nothing really new or exciting in this book.  I feel like I've been there, seen it.


  1. Hey! Love your blog! its super kewl! I just nominated your blog for the Liebster Award! You can see more information here.

  2. I love this feature. Haven't read this book yet but I have it on my TBR.

  3. This sucks because I just purchased this book recently. I hope I'll feel different about it of course but this doesn't bode well at all. lol.

    Awesome feature by the way! :D

  4. Awwww man I love Philippa Gregory's historical fiction novels - I haven't read any of these yet, now I am wondering whether they are worth it or not :( Doesn't sound good but thank you for the review!
