The Fault in Our Stars (Thorndike Literacy Bridge) (Large Print) by John Green
The Fault in Our Stars (Thorndike Literacy Bridge) (Large Print)

Katherine Stevens, April 27, 2013

Unapologetic tearjerker. Inventive, atypical story of two cancer-riddled teenagers who travel to Amsterdam in search of closure from a sad drunk novelist who left his one book incomplete. Even though the ending is no surprise, it is equal parts clever and crushing. Cried so hard I thought I was going to throw up.

Apples Are from Kazakhstan: The Land That Disappeared
Apples Are from Kazakhstan: The Land That Disappeared

Katherine Stevens, April 15, 2013

It may be simplistic but the highest praise I can give this book is that it makes me want to go to Kazakhstan. Honest in its portrayal of Kazakhstan's very challenging recent history, Robbins also clearly is enchanted by the vast and diverse nation and his admiration is catching. If you've ever wondered what the real story is behind this large and largely unknown ex-Soviet republic--and even if you haven't and just want a good book to read, Apples are from Kazakhstan is a great choice.

Best book I read in 2012, hands down.
