November 2012 Round Up

It’s coming to the end of the year, and I’m mulling around my final best-of post. Thinking about what’s on my top 10 list for work. Just wondering, of all that I’ve read this year, what’s going to bubble to the top… I suppose I’ll have to work on that before the end of next month.  ALSO: you have one more day to enter my blogiversary giveaway. Go. Now. (But come back and read the rest of the post, okay?)

The top of the pile this month? I read a LOT of good stuff (and some not-so-good stuff), but I think this one moved me most:

Behind the Beautiful Forevers

A fascinating, moving, thoughtful look on poverty and globalism. A must read.

As for the rest:

The Cup and the Crown
Deadly Pink
The Drowned Vault
Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities
In a Glass Grimmly

Gustav Gloom and the People Taker
Margaret and the Moth Tree
The One and Only Ivan

Mr. Terupt Falls Again


The Crown of Embers

 Adult fiction:
