30 Day Book Meme - Day One

I'm trying to read more and, so far, I'm doing a pretty doing a pretty good job of it. My Kindle makes it very easy. Now, when I have to wait somewhere, instead of staring off into space or playing Gem Spinner on my phone, I can read. But, honestly, until recently, I haven't read with any consistency since college... at least not fiction books.  I read non-fiction a LOT... mostly how-to books about canning, house organization, homesteading, cooking, feng shui, camping, etc.

That was all a lead up to explain that I really have no idea why I feel compelled to do the 30 Day Book Meme, but I do.  I happened across it today while reading the blogs of some of the other What's in a Name Reading Challenge participants. Since I haven't focused on fiction reading for pleasure in so many years, I'm not sure what my answers will look like, so here goes...

Day 01 - The Best Book You Read Last Year

As already mentioned, I only just started reading fiction again last year with any vigor so the list for this is short to choose from.  I'm going to go with a Youth fiction book actually: Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan.  My son has gotten into the series and even dressed as Will for Halloween.  I made him a dark grey fleece sagum cloak which he stills wears.  It was an enjoyable book with the right amount of character development mixed with plot. I may or may not read the rest of the series (my son is on book four), but I see why he likes it and I like that I know what he's talking about now.
