37628 I tried to read Shade's Children by Garth Nix (#95 on the list) and gave up 1/3 of the way. I don't particularly like dystopian and this one was incredibly boring. It just couldn't keep my attention. I guess it could be because I'm working too hard and nothing I'm reading is working for me right now. Oh well.
