    I think I may have to re-do my list. I've just finished The Tragedy of Arthur and started The Life & Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, and they're both wonderful. Sneaking in some good stuff at the very end of the year!

    I feel like the only person who did not love Unbroken. It was an amazing story but it took me a really long time to make it through the book.
