True Grit by Charles Portis - Been wanting to read this for ages, I hear such good things.

 

Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff - Just bought this too - it's Japanese steampunk, and has a blurb of praise from Patrick Rothfuss on the cover. OMG.

 

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman - Hoping this will be a good, quick read.

 

Relish by Lucy Knisley - Graphic novel about food! I'm IN.

 

George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt by Lucy & Stephen Hawking - Excited to start this kid's book that's so science-heavy. Really enjoyed the first book.

 

Self-Inflicted Wounds by Aisha Tyler - Funny lady comedy book!
