LIST 11/15 (NEARING THE END OF REVIEWING THE 148 BOOKS OF 2015!)

🏅 = 5 stars, 💣 = 2 or less stars. List 10 here: LIST 10/15 (I'M REVIEWING ALL 148 BOOKS I READ IN 2015) List 12: 12/15 - REVIEWING BOOKS 111-120 OF 2015
  1. 🏅 The Giver by Lois Lowry
    I forgot how practically perfect this book is!
  2. Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce
    I have several friends who love Pierce passionately. I've never read any of her books. This one was a slow starter, but I ended up liking it.
  3. The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz
    So fun to revisit Lisbeth and Blomkvist et al. (I listened on audio... So I feel like I'm probably misspelling their names.)
  4. Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry
    Not as good as The Giver, but I still enjoyed this one.
  5. Paper Towns by John Green
    I found the repartée between Q and his friends immensely charming. My second John Green novel.... Didn't compare to TFiOS, but I still liked it.
  6. Magna Carta by Dan Brown
    Man those Plantagenets were vicious. So so so glad I live in the modern era.
  7. 💣 Messenger by Lois Lowry
    Meh. Didn't enjoy this one.
  8. A Banquet of Consequences by Elizabeth George
    Hooray! Hooray! Elizabeth George is back with a vengeance. I disliked the last few books in the series, but this one was great. In a dark and disturbing way.
  9. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
    I love this frivolous YA trilogy! Teeny romance, likeable, ordinary heroine, London setting, and traveling in time! So great.
  10. Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan
    This made me laugh out loud multiple times. It's awesome on audio! "Bitter, hairy spinach" is a perfect description of kale.
