Mini Reviews: Picture the Dead, Wisdom's Kiss, Trafficked

Mini Reviews are my thoughts on books I've recently read, in three sentences or less.

Picture the Dead is a fun, somewhat creepy read that wasn't quite as ghostly as I'd hoped.  The illustrations are pretty cool, though, and the story is very well told, if not a little predictable.  Still an enjoyable read for fans of historical quasi-ghost stories.

I'll be honest and admit I only got this book because of the cat...and maybe that's not the best reason to read a book.  There is a lot going on in the narration of this novel, including about six billion different perspectives.  But not a whole lot actually happens plot-wise, and Wisdom's Kiss went back to the library unfinished.


Cover of Trafficked by Kim Purcell Trafficked by Kim Purcell

Trafficked is deserving of so much more than just a mini review, but I can't find the words to say how shocking and horrifying it is, other than to just say so.  It's appalling to know that this kind of thing goes on today, in the United States, and I think that makes it an important read.  I only wish we had been able to see more of Hannah's life after her experience.


  1. I love mini reviews so this is a really fun post to read! I think I have Trafficked on my to-read list and I know it will be a really difficult and sad book to read but I do want to read it eventually.

  2. Awh, what a shame you didn't like Wisdom's kiss! It sounds like such a great book when I read the synopsis and the cover is very attractive to me.. Hmm.
