I would have to say the Hunger Games series.


The Giver is one of my favorites. SO is The Last Lecture. I am LOVING reading aloud Because of Winn=Dixie to my 3rd graders....but my all-time favorite would have to be Charlotte's Web!

Anne Duncan

I loved The Art of Racing in the Rain - a dog lover's delight!


I'm going to say two, because most of the books I read last year were academic and potentially uninteresting to most people. Peter Shillingsberg's From Gutenberg to Google was really fascinating. (that's the academic pick.)

for general for-fun books, I read Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. so adorable. I am quite sick of waiting for the sequel to be translated from German...


My favorite is Killing Kate by a local White Bear Lake author Julie Kramer. Her books are always full of suspense and ones I want to keep reading all night!


I loved all of the Twilight books. I put off reading them for a long time but finally gave in. Loved them. And I have recently found author Elin Hildebrand, she writes fiction in the Nantucket setting which I love.
This would be a FUN giveaway to win! Thanks :)

Elizabeth Anderson

My favorite is "In the Garden of Beasts" - nonfiction about the last American Ambassador to Berlin and his family on the eve of the rise to power of Hitler prior to the start of WWII - fascinating take on a heavy topic. This would be a great give-away to win! :)E

Danielle Ochoa

So far, mine has been Exploiting My Baby by Teresa Strasser. She's so clever, witty, and talented and I feel like, when I do get pregnant, I'll be able to relate to her fears and funny remarks. :)

Susan Abbott

The most memorable book I read in the last year is "The Lacuna" by Barbara Kingsolver...oh, wait, also Ann Patchett's "State of Wonder." Two of my favorite authors.

Michael Hlavac

I loved the book titled "Room" by Emma Donoghue. It was both haunting and intriguing.


I'm a nonfiction reader... I think "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand is at the top of my list of recent standouts.


the hunger games are probably at the top of my list, although i've read some good non-fiction too. i love donald miller's books and i'm re-reading "through painted deserts."

Kate Wilson

Hmm. I'd have to say Bossypants by Tina Fey. That woman is HILARIOUS and just seems to be so completely normal. I highly recommend it!


In search of Timothy. if your looking to develope your leadership skills excellent read.


Sadly I haven't read much in the past year with a infant - BUT I did greatly enjoy reading "Busy Woman's Guide to Prayer"....it definitely applied!


The Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce! It is a young adult/teen read that goes by quickly but oh so enjoyable still after all these years :)

Kate S

This is a tough one! I think I have to go with Divergent by Veronica Roth. I loved that it was set in a future Chicago, where I lived for a few years, because I could pick out the landmarks. It was also my favorite blend of dystopian YA literature!


hmmmm, i really liked Redeeming Love (thanks for the giveaway!)

Jennifer C.

I loved "The Snow Child" by Eowyn Ivey. It was so beautifully written. The characters gave us a lot to talk about at our book club!

Christina D

Thanks! Favorite recent read: Time of My Life by Allison Winn Scotch


I read - How Starbucks Saved My Life - quick read and great perspective.


The Help. I was late to the party, but once I began it, I couldn't put it down. Loved the movie, too, on its own merits. :)

(ms.) Michael

I was also late to the party with The Help but loved that I kept trying to sneak a few minutes here and there to get in a few pages.

Thanks for another fabulous opportunity, Gina!

Bethany Davis

I'm not sure if it'd be my "favorite", but probably the most useful as we anticipate the arrival of our baby... Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems by Tracy Hogg. :)


My recent favourite reads include: The Help, Sarah's Key & The Mill River Recluse. Thanks once again for a chance to win!
