Over the past two weeks, I've
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan--I never read series books back-to-back, but I had to know how this ended!
Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi--Very funny, honest, graphic novel about the sex lives of Iranian women!
The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop by Lewis Buzbee--Didn't finish as strongly as it started for me, but I really loved the parts that I loved.
Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji--Teens in Tehran in 1973. A refeshing look at Iran, showing that we're more alike than we think.
A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle--Like a vacation to France in a book. Without the headache of your own builders.
Austenland by Shannon Hale--Very cute.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss--Very strong start to a fantasy series.
Zora and Me by Victoria Bond and T. R. Simon--Imaginative, young Zora Neale Hurston and friends investigate a murder and learn some truths about race relations.
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell--If you're an Austen fan, you have to read this if you haven't already.
The Known World by Edward P. Jones--Heart-breaking historical fiction about a black slave owner.
Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn--Almost done! I have to chew this one over before reviewing.
Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman by Alice Steinbach--I was ready to hop a plane to Paris by the end of the first chapter.
Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis--I haven't actually started yet, but it sounds good!
I'm not sure. It's almost time for a new audiobook. I may try The Maze Runner by James Dashner. Has anyone listened to it? What did you think?
