Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

dawn betts-green, January 1, 2013

Riggs used actual photographs to build story of strange children locked in an odd time loop. A sequel and movie are forthcoming, and I am excited!

Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity: The Unwritten #01 by Mike Carey and Peter Gross
Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity: The Unwritten #01

I just discovered this comic, and I am in love! The Unwritten tells the story of how fiction shapes our world and sometimes enters in. This is the first collection of the series, and the next three are just as good.

11/22/63 by Stephen King

This was the very first book I finished this year, and I LOVED it. I'm a sucker for time travel, fiction or otherwise, and King did an excellent job with his foray into it. One of the best King novels I've read in years.

The Well of Loneliness: A 1920s Classic of Lesbian Fiction by Radclyffe Hall
The Well of Loneliness: A 1920s Classic of Lesbian Fiction

dawn betts-green, December 12, 2011

A classic of lesbian fiction that often gets left off lists. I read this not too long after coming out, and I loved it.

Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius, and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players by Stefan Fatsis
Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius, and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players

dawn betts-green, July 21, 2011

I really enjoyed this book! I'm a Scrabble fan, but the people in this book have me beat hands down. Fatsis does an excellent job of becoming part of the community and giving us the lives of the pro Scrabblers. My only complaint is that there were a few places it got a bit more technical than it needed to be. Other than that: awesome!
