Page Me 2013

2013 started off as a banner year in my reading life. A banner year, my friend.  Then, in August I got consumed with a little thing they call the iPhone.  Oh, and high school.  High school marching band happened.  And fall baseball.  I stopped reading anything not on a webpage.  Here's to loftier pursuits in 2014....

source: Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood | Scholastic.com

A Day No Pigs Would Die, Robert Newton Peck
Nectar in a Sieve, Kamala Markandaya
The History of Love, Nicole Krauss
House of Sand and Fog, Andre Dubus III
Night, Elie Wiesel
Petals from the Sky, Mingmei Yip
The Last Tycoon, F. Scott Fitzgerald
She's Come Undone, Wally Lamb
Heart of the Matter, Emily Giffin
Son, Lois Lowry
The Poisonwood Bible, Barbara Kingsolver
The Birth Order Book, Dr. Kevin Leman

If you googled some of these books, you would find that a few are "young adult". Doesn't mean they aren't literature.   Like Glory Be.  A beautiful coming-of-age story set during the civil rights movement.  Read The Night Circus.  Scenes in it and Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet come back to me all the time. Time to get back to turning pages!!!!
