A is for ...

In need of some inspiration for posts beyond Goodreads reposts we're going to go the alphabet route. Seen it on a couple blogs lately. Shall we start at the very beginning?

Anne of Green Gables--had to go with a character name here because HELLO! Most favorite non-mystery character ever. I cannot even count how many times I have reread these books. Which reminds me ... it's been a while. Hoping to be able to visit PEI next summer. Maybe. If the stars align. ;]

Tom Angleberger--The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Is it terrible I really want it to win next year? Took a while but I can finally do the simple Yoda. The super complicated one? Egads, no. Anyway. Is it wrong to influence the children's vote?

Jay Asher--I listened to Thirteen Reasons Why. That is THE way to experience this book. IMHO, anyway. Sad. But powerful.

Avi--I've never found anyone who loved The End of the Beginning as much as I did. But I have convinced others to enjoy it. I don't even usually go for the philosophical animal route. But these two ... they made me laugh and they taught me at the same time!


  1. I shall have to include Jane Austen in another post. It's late. Time to sleep. Yes. We'll put her in the J's since those are harder to fill. ;]

  2. What a great idea! Here are some of my favorite "A" books: Monkey Face by Frank Asch, Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko, and Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
