- •🏅 Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures by Jackson Pearce and Maggie StiefvaterI LOVED this book. Eleanor and Juliet's friends be warned: you're probably all going to get a copy of this for your 10th birthday.
- •The Drowning by Camilla LäckbergI love Patrik and Erica! They're such a great detective duo. But I do not like Läckberg's cliffhangery endings. They better hurry up and translate the next book into English! (Side note: I interviewed Läckberg for Self Awareness here: http://www.shelf-awareness.com/readers-issue.html?issue=437#m7665)
- •Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son by Martin Sheen and Emilio EstevezI mostly loved Martin Sheen's chapters, and mostly wanted to punch Emilio Estevez in his smug face.
- •Bath Tangle by Georgette HeyerOne of Heyer's wittiest and most political novels.
- •🏅 Fangirl by Rainbow RowellI listened to this for the third time in less than a year. I'm officially a Fangirl fan girl!
- •What Alice Forgot by Liane MoriartyVery fun, and surprisingly thought-provoking.
- •Icarus by Deon MeyerA very good South African mystery, revolving around the death of an AshleyMadison-type website creator.
- •The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R KingI know @mhawkeyem loves these Sherlockian mysteries, but I was a little underwhelmed. Sidenote: how weird that I read TWO books with beekeeper in the title in the same year!
- •Devil of Delphi by Jeffrey SigerA pretty funny mystery set in Athens.
- •Half Magic by Edward EagerA magical kids' book. A couple of borderline racist moments though (stereotyping Arab and Indian speech patterns, etc). So frustrating how much "classic" kid lit has that sort of thing.
