I Am the Cheese by Robert Cormier
Awesome book. Wonderfully mind-bending. Definitely my favorite young-adult fiction thriller.
Brothers: Life, Death, Truth by Ted Van Lieshout
Very touching. Short and sweet.
Angels & Demons by Dan Brown
Best mystery/thriller I’ve ever read. Even better than Brown’s famous ‘Da Vinci Code.’
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
The epitome of Romantic (capital R).
A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
Would have been terrifying if it weren’t so obviously self-centered and contrived.
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Sad. Beautiful. Great. Horrible. Read it.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
Really great book about a boy learning of his ancestry and history. Definitely recommended.
That Eye, The Sky by Tim Winton
Interesting. Not much to the story, but the writing is certainly creative. I suppose I’m glad to have read it because it’s just.. ‘different.’
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by R.L. Stevenson
Typical Romanticism. Comparable to ‘Frankenstein.’
A Prayer for the Dying by Stewart O’Nan
Scary and sad.
