  2. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
  3. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
  4. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
  5. The Mushroom Hunters by Langdon Cook
  6. Altered by Gennifer Alben
  7. Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  8. The Disappearance of Lizzy Ross by Jessica Schein
  9. Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosch

Final books of 2013.

YA: Altered was awful. The first book in the series, Crewel, was inventive and magical. This was… trying. The Infernal Devices series was surprising and I loved the mythology. The Disappearance of Lizzy Ross was fast and fun and I can’t wait for the next one.

Nonfiction: The Mushroom Hunters. I never read nonfiction, but learning about the people that collect most of the high end mushrooms served in restaurants in the US was worth it. Very good.

Others. The Goldfinch: as good and engrossing as you’ve heard. Americanah: Talks about America in a way that Americans can’t. I wanted to type up and post some of the blog posts about race by the author. They were brilliant. Hyperbole and a Half: I truly feel that this is an important book. It’s not just an “internet book” or a “comic book” - although none of those things should be belittling phrases. Allie speaks so truly about depression. And also she’s funny.
