Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee
 by Casey Cep

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn’t think I was going to enjoy this book as much as I did. I hadn’t read much about Harper Lee before, and the book shed some light onto who she was. The trial she was researching was very interesting, too.

The book flowed well, and the author didn’t try to bounce back and forth between time periods and characters, so it made it easier to follow. It was well-written, and I would definitely recommend it to those who like non-fiction

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So much happened in this book. The different chapters were told by different characters and I loved it. I was busy the whole time thinking about how each character felt. One main character didn’t get her say, though. I felt it was missing and could have been part of the epilogue. It was a wonderful story and it wouldn’t have had such a wonderful flow if it had been written any differently.

The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a favorite story from my childhood. When I read it as an adult, I realized the story was about being yourself and your family accepting you for who you are. As a child, I only saw it as a goofy bull who didn’t do what others wanted him to. I think I like it better with an adult’s point of view.
