Book Buzz

  • Book six in the Artemis Fowl series, The Time Paradox, came out Tuesday. I tried reading the first book, but I just couldn’t get into it. The blend of fantasy and mean characters was too much for me. I guess other people don’t have the same problem.
  • Breaking Dawn will be released in two weeks, and I keep stumbling over Stephenie Meyer. Entertainment Weekly featured The Twilight Saga on its cover. According to this article in the LA Times, though, fans weren’t so hot on it. The New York Times also carried an Op-Ed about the series. Gail Collins suggests the series is developing “a generation of women who expect their boyfriend to crawl through their bedroom window at night and just nuzzle gently until they fall asleep.”
  • For those still looking for a summer read, The Root features “Page Burners: Fourteen hot reads to go wherever summer takes you.” The list includes Slavery by Another Name by Douglas A. Blackmon. The Times recommends it as well.
