Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1)

I loved exploring the mystical world of Harry Potter. I felt scared, excited, and relieved for Harry and his friends all at different
times. Rowling magically blended together everything that you want from a book in a captivating and compelling tale.
This fantasy is extremely believable due to the fact that Hogwarts is like any other middle school; there always will be teachers you don't
particularly enjoy (Professor Snape), rivalries between fellow students (Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy), tons of homework, and great friendships
(Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger). This book is truly the work of a genius.

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver

This is my choice of book to gift this year. It is a magically written novel. I care about every character,
as well as the farm, the plants, the insects and how the woven stories resolve. I want to continue reading
Barbara Kingsolver just to enjoy her words.

Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes
Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War

5 isn't high enough...
Who needs vampires when you can read about human beings
in a war in the bush living in "hell". Vampires can't begin to compare
with a story about humans killing each other during a war that
didn't make sense. This powerful novel will get under your skin
and stay there.

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
A Discovery of Witches

I am loving this book right now. It is fun to read a book that combines
witches and vampires with sophistication and history. It takes place on a
college campus in a library. The characters are professors of history and
science. It is fun and interesting and thoroughly addicting!
