1. The Giver series by Lois Lowry: I cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed this series; it's the best one I've read in years. Usually by the time I near the final book in a series, I'm ready to bid adieu to the characters, Not so with this one. I was so sad to complete it, and I still wish there was another book or two.
Until the next post . . . keep smiling!
