The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration - Isabel Wilkerson
Jellicoe Road - Melina Marchetta

Why was I swaying so much in this video? I don't even know.

Pick up a copy of "Jellicoe Road" by Melina Marchetta: http://bit.ly/13SJ3wd


Supreme Courtship

Supreme Courtship - Christopher Buckley I just couldn't do it. I don't think I do satirical novels very well bc I find it difficult to waste time with over-the-top characters with little to no redeeming qualities.If you like satire and politics, you might like this.

The Mysteries of Pittsburgh (P.S.)

The Mysteries of Pittsburgh - Michael Chabon I forget that I don't like Michael Chabon as much as I think I do.

Beautiful Chaos (Beautiful Creatures)

Beautiful Chaos  - Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia I got an ebook version for about $2 and I tried really, REALLY hard. But after about 80 pages I just couldn't. Not the book for me.

The Snowman: A Harry Hole Novel

The Snowman: A Harry Hole Novel - Jo Nesbø Whoa. That was quite the ride!

Double Crossed

Double Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Story - Ally Carter This was a fun little novella. I was thrown off by the fact that it ended at the 50% mark [the other half are previews to the Heist Society and GG books], but otherwise this was a fun little story. I hope that Ally Carter writes a full book incorporating both characters one day.

Perfect Scoundrels

Perfect Scoundrels - Ally Carter FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. This is by far my favorite out of the series.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel - Rachel Joyce Absolutely loved this book. Moved me to tears by the end of it.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight - Jennifer E. Smith Well, this was a quick read. I didn't think much of this book. It was fine. Insta-love, but I focused more on Hadley's relationship with her parents because I found that more interesting than Oliver. It wasn't anything great, but it is a rom-com fluff book so if you want that, this is for you.

Stargirl (Readers Circle)

Stargirl (Readers Circle) - Jerry Spinelli I enjoyed this book but didn't completely fall in love with it the way others have. View my full reaction on my channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ue-zMzpPzQ

The Casual Vacancy

The Casual Vacancy - J.K. Rowling This book gave me very strong mixed feelings, but in the end I enjoyed it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-O-IHVU_t8

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption - Laura Hillenbrand A great WWII story about survival and perseverance. It took me a little bit to get into the story, but once I did I could not put it down. http://youtu.be/JpQDwHxhsJ8

The Horologicon

The Horologicon: A Day's Jaunt Through the Lost Words of the English Language - Mark Forsyth This is a really fun book and a must read for anyone who loves reading and learning about words. See my full review: http://youtu.be/b10UgeizXcA
