For now, though, I'm enjoying the ride.
Here are the Harper books I have loved (and I'm soooo sorry about the pub dates!):
- The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood (2.10)
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (3.10) - I was not prepared for how compelling this would be. I'm still thinking about it days after I finished it.
Here are the non-Harper books I have equally loved:
- Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic) - Finally read it! And it was so worth the wait. Incredible, incredible stuff.
- Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (9.09, Scholastic) - Equally as incredible
- Liar by Justine Larbalestier (9.09, Bloomsbury) - The jacket controversy seems to have overshadowed the fact that this is a well-crafted, fascinating suspense thriller. Read it.
- The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly (Holt) - How can this NOT have something shiny on it come January?
- Dunderheads by Paul Fleischman, illustrated by David Roberts (Candlewick)
Great summer for reading! Now, all I need to do is get my hands on Dani Noir by Nova Ren Suma (per Molly's recommendation) and Winter's End by Jean-Claude Mourlevat, translated by Anthea Bell (per Chris Shoemaker's recommendation) and my August will ROCK!
