Just starting. A favorite author -- but not one I would associate with YA.

Read this series 7 years ago. This time I'm listening on Audible. The whole fam loves this story, and it was really fun listening to the last couple hours of the first book while in the car yesterday. I thought my teenagers were busying themselves with something else in the back seat when my 13-year-old said, "Please turn that up, Mom." Love HP!
I have never read Frankenstein, but I still really enjoyed this book. I thought Elizabeth was an interesting character, I didn't hate her but I didn't think she was a really great person either. I didn't like some of the things she did in regards to Victor,but I understand why she acted the way she did. I didn't like Victor at all, to me I thought he wasn't as flush out as I would have wanted him to be. I can understand why the author made him this way, because Elizabeth was the main character and she wanted us the readers to be more drawn out, out of the two
But I just wanted to feel his characters motivated a little bit more.
I really loved the storyline, and I did go back and read about Victor's character in Frankenstein. And I liked how the author kept some of that Victor but also changed things about that Victor as well.
One of the things I didn't like was the ending, I felt it needed to be just a little bit longer, the ending just felt a little rushed, and I wish I could have connected more with the other characters. But I still really enjoyed the read.
What an absolute pleasure to be back in the world of Harry Potter! When I finished the series 7 years ago the first thing I said was that I would like to read it again some day. And now a member of my book club picked The Sorcerer's Stone for our November read! Thrilled! And this time I am listening on Audible... and loving every second of it!
