- The Language of Baklava by Abu-Jaber, Diana – This was a really interesting book. I really enjoyed her stories of family and identity. I definitely recommend this book.
- American Pie: Slices of Life (and Pie) from America’s Back Roads by Le Draoulec, Pascale – I love pie! The book was ok. It had some cute stories and a few recipes that I am excited to try.
- Wintergirls by Anderson, Laurie Halse – This is quite the book. It is really hard to read at parts. The character is going through an eating disorder and is very self-distructive. I can’t decide if I liked it or not. I doubt I will ever read it again.
- Earth Logic by Marks, Laurie J. – I really enjoyed these books. I love fantasy. This goes for both of them.
- Water Logic by Marks, Laurie J.
