Today I decided to create an award. I have not settled on a rating system, but I want you to know which books really are my complete faves, the ones I will remember long after I read them, the ones that I grieved when I finished. :)
So with a super happy smile I would like to present to you the Happy Chicken Award: Reserved for the Best of the Best! I went through my reads this year and figured out which ones would receive this award:
Sarajevo Marlboro by Miljenko Jergovic
The Writing Circle by Rozena Maart
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
Watership Down by Richard Adams
Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger
The Shiniest Jewel by Marian Henley
The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton
(not yet reviewed)
When you see this image, know that the book you are reading about isn't just good, it is the best. I know, the Happy Chicken Award is a bit strange...but so am I :) Enjoy.
ps. This is a picture of my chick, who is now a chicken. Her name is jewel!
