Linger by Maggie Stiefvater (audiobook): As good as the first; how long till book three?
Lies by Michael Grant (read-aloud to the kids): Page-turning dystopian fiction with truly evil villains, authentic characters/dilemmas.
Feed by M.T. Anderson: Terrifying vision of the future, protagonist’s voice a tad annoying.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White: Fun beginning to new paranormal series, unique premise, great heroine.
Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman: Gothic mystery set in fine arts school; atmospheric, riveting, excellent.
The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger: Ode to the love of books, bit of cautionary tale.
The Exile: An Outlander Graphic Novel by Diana Gabaldon and Hoang Nguyen: Disappointing, artwork just okay, though Jamie’s bum is quite yummy.
Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich (audiobook): New character, familiar plotline, no Ranger or Morelli. Just okay.
How to Breathe Underwater by Julie Orringer: Extraordinary short fiction, an author to watch, couldn’t get enough.
