I am the lurkeriest lurker to ever lurk, seriously. I am like Castiel, invisicreeping on your journals. So hey, I'm going to try one of these 30 day meme things to see if I can't cut that out. Going with 30 days of books because 30 days of Supernatural would be kind of like preaching to the choir. (My thoughts on the season so far: unutterable glee!) Plus I like books.

Day 1: Best book you read last year.

The Orphan's Tales. Ugh, I cannot say enough good things about this book. (Okay, technically it's two books, In the Night Garden and In the Cities of Coin and Spice.) I love fairy tales, particularly the dark ones, from Grimms' Fairy Tales to The Fairy Tales of Herman Hesse to this book. It's reminiscent of The Arabian Nights but twisted up and much, much darker- which is exactly the way I like it. It isn't an easy read - it's dense and layered and I found myself having to go back to re-read bits a few times to remember which characters belonged to which story - but it's such a good one. I got pretty much nothing else done for the days I was reading it, I was so entranced. Highly recommended. More than. If I could strap people down and force them to read it, I would.
