Thanksgiving seems like the perfect day to list a few books that I’m glad came into the world during the year. My goal is to complete this list in 13 minutes. Not much thinking, hardly any writing, just a blitz of books.

You have so many that I love on this list. I would like to add that I am thankful for Matt de la Pena’s THE LIVING, which made my recent Thanksgiving travels, with its delays, inclement weather, and nasty airports, incredibly enjoyable. Happy Thanksgiving!
I loved The Living:)
Shawna – Matt de la Pena does not get onto many top-ten lists, but We Were Here made me cry about a group of kids that I would – otherwise – have had trouble connecting to. I haven’t read The Living, but I’ll go look it up.
I love this list! Mr. Tiger Goes Wild would definitely be on mine. I cannot wait to read The Real Boy and Rump.
I am glad to see This Journal Belings to Ratchet on your list. I don’t think it received the recognition it deserves. Happy Thanksgiving!
What a lovely thing to say! Thank you!
I’m reading JOURNAL right now and it’s so good! Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
So glad you’re enjoying it, Suzanne!
What a wonderfully diverse list, Colby 🙂 I have THE REAL BOY, but still haven’t read it *sigh* Right now I’m on the last 3rd of CHAMPION by Marie Lu. It’s SO good 🙂
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving 😀
