A work in progress.

    Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan
    This was insane and fascinating, but terrified me.
  2. 2.
    Gabi, Girl in Pieces by Isabel Quintero
    LOVED THIS. A really good YA read and I recommend it to the girls in my class. Funny, well written, and covers so many important issues teens face.
  3. 3.
    Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
    Not what you would expect from a comedian! A real investigation into how dating and romantic love has changed, but also written is his humorous voice. Interesting.

    Literacy Strategies 4-12 by Karen Tankersley
    'Cuz you know, I'm a teacher.
  5. 5.
    Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
    I read this a million years after everyone else, but HOLY CRAP I SEE WHAT THE HYPE WAS ABOUT. I feel like my brain is still shattered from this.
  6. 6.
    Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
    Not Gone Girl, but equally awesome. How does she come up with these stories?? And I like to think I'm good at figuring out the "who-dun-it" type stuff, but it's never what you think.

    Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
    I would like Gillian to write more books please.
  8. 8.
    Palo Alto by James Franco
    Short stories that are all slightly connected by the kids living in Palo Alto. I liked it much more by the end than I did at first.
  9. 9.
    Catching Readers Before They Fall by Johnson & Keier
    Because you've gotta throw in some educational reading. I was slightly let down by this book. The title is misleading.

    The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
    You can't go wrong with Dan Brown. Always a thriller you can't put down and I love learning the history he includes.

    Inferno by Dan Brown
    Probably my favorite book by him. It makes you really think. You also sympathize with the antagonist. At least I did. Though insane, he's not wrong. A little scary because I think it's true.
  12. 12.
    The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
    A re-read but I was on a roll with his books. I read it so long ago, and I forgot a lot of what it was really about.

    Uganda Be Kidding Me - Chelsea Handler
    She is so funny. And honest. I love her.
