Stardust - Claire Thompson I really love this series. All of them are short, simple books that pack just enough punch to give you a satisfying story but also not take long to read. I loved Dennis and Gordon (although I did hate Gordon for a really long time because of how completely stupid he was being and how starry-eyed he was. Ugh) He came around, though, and made everything better. I'm curious as to when the next in the Solitary Knights of Pelham Bay series will be released. I definitely recommend them if you are looking for something short to read but also satisfying.
