I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
I Capture the Castle

Anne Schuessler, January 16, 2013

I know it's a classic, but I only read it this year and was simply amazed. Just a few pages in I knew it was my favorite book of 2012.

A simple story of a family who barely get by living in the castle whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of two young American heirs next door. A bit Jane Austen, a bit Downton Abbey and something entirely else, I fell in love with this book.

The Wild Things by Dave Eggers
The Wild Things

Anne Schuessler, January 11, 2010

How terribly great is this book! After You Shall Know Our Velocity this book convinced me that Dave Eggers is just one amazing writer. I couldn't stop reading and that had nothing to do with the fact that I was stuck on airplanes and in airports. It had everything to do with the book. It was also kind of helpful, because after reading this, I knew that I wouldn't have to worry about deciding on my favorite book of the year.
