The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

Lovely Bones

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. A crime story told from the point-of-view of an autistic boy. His perceptions are as, or more, fascinating than solving the crime! My favorite Mark Haddon book.

My all time most favorite book ever in the whole world! Hyperbole much? I really do love this book.

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Atticus Finch: Easily the most heroic, admirable character that I've ever come across in reading. And Boo! My children know my love of Boo, thus their many nicknames!

Best book from 1963-2013

The 50 Books Everyone Needs to Read, 1963-2013

The Road (Cormac McCarthy). Understated and straightforward but written with beautiful language and some heartfelt moments. A dad and young son "carry the fire" to the coast in a post apocalyptic cannibalistic world.

Obvious recommendation, but the Hunger Games series is amazing! Third Book - Mockingjay

Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins. The third and final book of the Hunger Games series. I liked books 1 and 2 much better, but Mockingjay tied things up nicely.

beautifully solemn, a classic tale from the depression era of the south . John Steinbeck moves me!

Of Mice and Men

Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck. Come to think of it.anything by Steinbeck. One can always learn more about writing by rereading Steinbeck. Even after teaching this one about 50 times, I still love it.
