Title: Almost Everything: Notes on Hope

Comments: 
The cover isn't the only thing that's awesome about this book - Anne Lamott's personality comes through loud and clear and she's at once wise and funny, too.  Ultimately, her message really is hopeful and I felt I spent time with an older aunt imparting life advice reading this.

Title: A Winter's Promise

Comments: 
If you liked Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series, this may be for you.  I was immediately intrigued by the World of the Arks and the main character Ophelia's ability to travel through mirrors.  The story that unfolds is similar to what you find in fairy tales, however it's so unique in its environment and the characters all very well-developed.  I am so pleased to know that this is just Book 1 and that there is some more of Ophelia and Thorn to look forward to.

Title: The Places That Scare You

Comments: 
You do not have to be a practicing Buddhist to glean something from this book -- In fact, I think it contains wisdom and tools for living that all beings could benefit from.  I certainly wish I was taught this way of looking at the world when I was a child!  If you are feeling disenchanted with life or have trouble getting out of your own way, this is a fresh perspective for consideration. It has been an invaluable resource to me for many years.

Title: The Bone People

Comments: 
Have you ever read something that sticks with you for years and years? Keri Hulme's The Bone People is one of those stories for me.  I still think about the characters and the landscape to this day.  If you are interested in learning about different cultures and also like a mix of mystery, love, and family, this might be a good choice for you.  Be prepared for an experimental, yet beautiful reading experience that at times is akin to poetry and tells the tale from varying points of view.

What a charming, sweet story about what it means to step outside of your routine and the gifts of new experiences.  Very simply told, this is an encouragement of imagination, play, as well as staying true to oneself.  And the illustration is just darling.  I have this one on my personal bookshelf as an adult :)
