I won’t have a Book Pick for December. Instead, here are the books I’ve featured throughout the year:
Hello, My Name is Ruby by Philip Stead – A little bird makes friends and finds her people.
Wild by Emily Hughes – An quirky and delightful look at what cannot be tamed.
Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo – Funny and philosophical novel for kids
Mouse Bird Snake Wolf by David Almond – A dark fable exploring human nature.
The Fairy Ring by Mary Losure – Do you believe in fairies?
Formerly Shark Girl by Kelly Bingham – Challenge your assumptions about people who look different.
Just One Day by Gayle Forman – For the romantic in you…
Rapture Practice by Aaron Hartzler – Glimpse a strictly religious childhood in this memoir that is funny and fascinating.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – For the romantic nerd in you…
The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout – A novel about family relationships and bridging cultures.
Goliath by Tom Gauld – In case you’ve ever wondered about Goliath’s side of the story…
Book Picks resume in January. I also hope to have an updated list of my favorites from 2013. My favorites from the first half of the year are here.
