3 pm sleepies / Best Of challenge

I’m having trouble settling on a book. I’m back and forth between several right now. Threw in a dinosaur graphic novel for a quick read and brain break.

And yeah, this one isn’t uplifting, but I’m enjoying it.

So, a reading mini-challenge:

Best of Your Reading Year:
Best Book of Your Reading Year: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. I’ve read her blog for a long time, and when I saw her book at the bookstore, I bought it immediately. I laughed. I cried. I identified. Her depression comics are so SO on the mark, and I wish that everybody would read them and maybe understand a little bit better what mental illness is like.

Best Non-Fiction Book of Your Reading Year: Gulp by Mary Roach. I always enjoy her books, and this one did not disappoint! Full of weird, engaging things that I never knew I didn’t know. Fascinating, entertaining, sometimes downright funny. I can’t wait for her next book.

Best YA Book of Your Reading Year: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Without question. Even though it made me cry my eyes out.

Best Graphic Novel of Your Reading Year: Pride of Baghdad by Brian K. Vaughan. This is the story of a pride of lions in the Baghdad zoo during the war. It is beautiful and brutal and amazing. War breaks my heart. This book broke my heart a little bit more.

That’s all for now. Back to the books!
