The Diviners by Libba Bray

I loved, loved, LOVED this book. Holy cow, it was long, but just so beautifully written. A masterpiece. I think Libba Bray has a deal with the devil when it comes to writing books. How can one person have so much talent?

The audiobook was performed brilliantly. Truly the best way to experience this book!

Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson

I started reading this book 10 minutes after I bought it from Boswell Bookstore in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and didn't stop until I was done. A beautifully written novel in verse! My favorite lines:

You have a poet's heart, Lonnie.
That's what Ms. Marcus said to me.
I have a poet's heart. 
That's good. A good thing to have.
And I'm the one who has it. 

Yes, Jacqueline Woodson. Yes.
