Jana & Steph are bringing us book lovin' bloggers our favorite day of the month again - Show Us Your Books day!
2. The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt - The pace of this book is so smooth even with multiple murders, disease, animal deaths, and loneliness. I'm finding it difficult to articulate why I enjoyed the story so much, but I did. 4/5
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens - Solid mystery/thriller with twists and turns and the right degree of fucked-up-ness. My first to read from this author, and it won't be my last. 4/5
5. Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai - The story of a Vietnamese refugee family that moves to Alabama during the Vietnam war told through the eyes of a 10 year old girl. Poignant and emotional, this was a Newberry Award for children's literature, deservedly so. 4.5/5
6. I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson - Heartbreak, art, family, love, tragedy, self-discovery, and a little whimsy too. Some parts of the story, I predicted; others, I didn't...but I enjoyed the ride. I had high expectations, and this book exceeded them. 5/5
7. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde - I'm just not meant to read "classics". The end. P.S. Children's literature is the exception.
