Avalon High

Avalon High
by: Meg Cabot

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you like modern re-tellings or Meg Cabot.
Category: Young Adult

Avalon High is sort-of a retelling of the King Arthur, Lancelot & Guinevere story. It centers around this girl named Elaine who starts at a new school only to realize that something seems weird & that there are a lot of similarities to the old King Arthur story. It wasn't my absolute favorite book, but I do like retellings, so it was interesting on that front. It was also a really quick read, which is why I call books like these "breathers." They just don't take me any time really to read & there's not much complicated thoughts going on while I read them.

Things I liked
I love a retelling of old stories. I actually looked up stuff about the King Arthur story while I was reading this.

Things I didn't
There just wasn't much depth to the storyline here, so it was fun but not quality.

Overall: Another fun young adult read, but not quality literature by any means.

Book 8 of 50
