Clouds of Witness by Dorothy L. Sayers

After reading Whose Body? (the first Lord Peter Wimsey book) last year, I wanted to read more by Dorothy L. Sayers, so I chose Clouds of Witness (the second book) for my classic by a woman author. I actually finished it a few weeks ago, but I forgot to write my review for the challenge. Lord Peter Wimsey must figure out who killed the man who was engaged to his sister (Lady Mary) in order to save his brother (The Duke of Denver) who is accused of the murder. It was another enjoyable read and I rate it 4 out of 5.

My Friend Flicka by Mary O'Hara

There are a lot of children's classics I've never read, so I had many to choose from for this category. I chose My Friend Flicka after reading this post by my friend Kathy Johnson and I'm glad I did. It was a great coming of age story about a young boy who can't seem to do anything right. He learns about responsibility and friendship one summer from Flicka, a chestnut filly with a wild spirit. I rate this book 4 out of 5.
