Across the Wall

In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto
4.05

Twilight (Twilight, #1)

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)

An adorable mishmash of genres. Don't go into this seriously or expecting much -- and you'll enjoy the hell out of it. Technically this should be four...more

The Blue Castle

This is one of those books I go back to over and over again. From childhood to adulthood, it never seems to age.

Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle, #1)

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
