I loved this book. Absolutely adored it. I finished it last night and hinted to Ben that I would like the second one immediately (apparently, the bookstore he looked in today did not have it). I got sucked into Reynie's world as soon as I read the first page and I couldn't wait to see what happened. It is probably the closest thing to the Harry Potter feeling that I have found in this post Deathly Hallows world. There was mystery (some a little easy to solve but I'm not really the targeted reader), adventure, fun characters, and even some humor. This book is the reason that you shouldn't dismiss kid's lit. Have I mentioned how much I love this book?
Next on my reading list is The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet. Both Emily and Ginger Sister raved about it, so I picked it up from the library as soon as possible. I haven't started it yet but I am very much looking forward to it.
