1. The 7th Flavia de Luce book
    90b51f00 1f99 4d7d a6a8 1ea70608422f
    One of my favorite characters in literature.
  2. Roald Dahl
    A40593cb f142 47c9 b230 88d61a608c7e
    I (re)read almost all of his books this year. I love him. I also highly recommend his two autobiographies. He led a fascinating life.
  3. The Rent Collector
    5110c10e 644a 44ba b94b b8cb141b1aaa
    I reluctantly read this for book club and loved it. An amazing story of overcoming dire circumstances and the power of reading!
  4. Maisie Dobbs
    049199fe 944c 4d9b a7c6 2f0bd0b1f156
    Strong lady detective in the 1920s. Reminded me of my love for mysteries and England. I'm now on book five in the series.
  5. The Blue Castle
    07294f15 13ec 4925 b7fa 441a9a7353af
    Why are people wasting their time with Anne of Green Gables when this book exists? Kidding, I love Anne, but this book won my heart. Please read it now. I plan to gift it to everyone I have ever known.
  6. Persepolis
    F547fa1a a774 41e8 8e4f d0999e65f902
    My first graphic novel. A powerful story that I didn't know much about. It was the perfect format for a tragic story.
  7. Liar & Spy + First Light + Goodbye Stranger
    Abbef06c 6148 4637 aeeb 57ea3c0d8d15
    I'm in love with Rebecca Stead's children and YA novels. Unpredictable and lovely.
  8. The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto
    C1df5557 9820 4185 8875 55aacb46da1c
    I will immediately buy anything by Mitch Albom. He once called me "tall". It's just a statement of fact, but I hold it dear.
  9. We Should All be Feminists
    530ffee0 e3f7 4694 be65 8f93bff439a2
    A great TED talk. Really fascinating points that really made me think. Should be read by everyone.
