The Sword of Bedwyr (Crimson Shadow Series, Book 1) by R.A. Salvatore 4.5/5.0
One of the best fantasy novels I’ve ever read – turned me on to R.A. Salvatore.
The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood 4.5/5.0
I love this book and I will probably read it again. I’ve recommended it to many friends.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon 4.5/5.0
Beautiful story about an autistic boy who embarks on a journey of discover, only to learn much more than he could have ever imagined. Very highly recommended.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky 5.0/5.0
Best book ever. No, seriously. I can’t say enough about the realistic beauty of this book – the characterization is masterful, the plot simple yet moving, the language and prose, hauntingly beautiful. I will read this one many, many times – and have passed it on to all the “Wallflowers” and readers that I know.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess 4.0/5.0
Awesome book.. incredibly inventive and scary. Brilliant social commentary, though possibly not my favorite of Anthony Burgess’s work.
33 Snowfish by Adam Rapp 4.0/5.0
Interesting. Short book.. worth the read.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls 5.0/5.0
Probably my favorite young adult book – after the Harry Potter series. Beautiful and magical story.
