Eoin Colfer because my nephew recommended it to me. Conor is a fourteen year old boy who is very interested in flying. He also is implicated in a crime he did not commit. If you like well written adventure stories or know a preteen/teen who does, this book is worth picking up.
Tsh Oxenreider is a book anyone could benefit from. I liked when Oxenreider talked about having a definite purpose for different parts of your room, and then deciding how you are going to have the room set up. This is worth looking through for some of the tips/recipes she has for cleaning even if you don't think you want to reassess/organize your entire home.
What books did you read this past year that you would recommend others read?
