The 12 Books of Christmas -- Book #12


I have rated 18 books so far this year with a perfect 5 out of 5 hats. So my top twelve books was a bit difficult to determine. I did cheat a little, because one "book" will be a series, since all of the books in the series got 5s and I read them all this year. So without further ado.... my 12th Book of Christmas is:

Sisterhood Everlasting, by Ann Brashares

Click the title to see my full review. The Sisterhood series is truly my favorite series ever. I love stories about friendship, and these are classic. I know some didn't like the plot in this book, but I thought it was perfect and rang true. You can't expect all of these girls to be as close as adults as they were as teens. I know it's true when I look at how my own friendships have changed. Here's a quote from my review:

I didn’t like what happened. But, by the end of the book, I came to terms with it – just like the Septembers did. Isn’t that amazing? I actually felt like they did, and had to come to terms just like the characters. I had to work it out just like I was one of them. Amazing writing. That’s all I can say....

So, if you have read the series but not this one, you really need to. If you haven't read the series, what are you waiting for?

Feel free to link up your favorite books in the comments, if you want. Tune in tomorrow for number 11!

  2. I really enjoyed this book as well. It was complex and heartfelt. I felt it was the perfect ending because it wasn't pretty and glossed over...it was real.
