I did read a bit though.
Before I get started, I want to invite you to read To Kill a Mockingbird with me as I host the Reading to Know Book Club next month. :)
Rainbow Valley, by L.M. Montgomery. I recently confessed on Facebook that I have never read all of the Anne of Green Gables series. This surprised several who know me well (including my husband) since they know I like LMM's work. I've actually read quite a few of her "other" works. Maybe that's why I hadn't managed to finish the Anne series. Either way, I was happy to pick up in the series where I had left off. Rainbow Valley is about Anne's children...and even more-so about their friends who live in the manse. It was a bit slow for me at the start, but before long I was wanting to take a stroll through Rainbow Valley, too.
Little Author in the Big Woods. A good children's biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Linked to complete review.
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Book Store, by Robin Sloan. Wonderful book set in modern-day San Francisco. Definitely recommend. Might be a favorite of the year.
Oh Pioneers, by Willa Cartha. Pultzler Prize winner about a smart woman on the Nebraska frontier. Interesting, but not wonderful.
