My first book was The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson which was a bit disappointing. I laughed hysterically at the beginning but Bill is getting old and grumpy and it showed. I did enjoy reading about England though as I do so love that place.
Another re-read was Harry Potter by JK Rowling which was amazing! I read it in one night and now I want to re-read the entire series. I have a long to be read book pile right now so it might be awhile but I'm going to read this again.
I listened to The One in a Million Boy by Monica Wood and WOW! This book was amazing. The story was so good. I loved hearing about how a young boy and a 100 year old woman became friends. It was great.
I read Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan for the Banned Books category and ehhh, it was ok. I just wasn't into the book. It was well written but not really for me.
I bought The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman last Christmas and never got around to reading it. I was kicking myself for taking so long. This tale of a girl and her magical Mom and Grandma at the end of the lane was fascinating and amazing.
For the Young Adult category, I read Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk. This book had been hyped to me all summer and it really lived up to the hype. I loved reading about this community and how it came together for the children who lived there.
I've read The Little Prince by Antonie de Saint Exupery but needed a book that was translated from another language. This one was short and while it is a classic, I always feel like I'm missing something from the story. The girls and I watched the new Netflix movie of it which is great and I'd highly recommend it.
