AP: Book Reviews

Your book reviews were some of the best work I have ever read. They were insightful and showed a level of attention that is rare. I’m looking forward to what you will be able to produce. There will be two due dates depending on the length of the book you choose. I wanted to make available some longer works of fiction, but given the time constraints, I didn’t think it was realistic to set a due date before spring break.

I tried to list the titles in chronological order.
