It's been a lovely reading month. I've been enjoying it all. I think some of my top tens of the year will end up coming from this month. I don't know. I guess we'll see!
Here's what I read:
Raven Stole the Moon by Garth Stein: A mom tries to deal with the death of her son by running away to Alaska and getting wrapped up in its local legends.
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell: The story of a space exploration mission and it's tragic end.
I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It by Adam Selzer: Vampires are so full of themselves. Zombies are were it's at!
Unwind by Neal Shusterman: Three kids destined to be "unwound" bond together as they figure out how to escape their destiny.
My Double Life by Janette Rallison: Because Alexia looks so much like pop singer Kari, she is hired to be her double and goes of on a Hollywood adventure
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: Alice falls down a rabbit hole and has a wild, weird adventure.
The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan: Rand and his friends search for the horn and the dagger, while he meanwhile, discovers more and more about his uniqueness.
We the Children by Andrew Clements: Ben embarks on a quest to save the school!
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld: As WWI starts, Alek runs for his life, while Derwyn joins the Darwinist army.
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett: (re-read): A group of party goers, who have gathered to hear a famous opera singer, end up as hostages instead.
Favorites of the month: The Sparrow, Unwind, The Great Hunt.... and Bel Canto held up as a re-read.
