  1. A.S. King made my list too. I read Everybody Sees the Ants this past year and really loved it. I’m planning on reading Ask the Passengers next. I love how beautifully she weaves magical realism into her books.
    I’ve seen Hook’s Revenge around quite a bit lately, and I’m really tempted to pick it up. Peter Pan is my favorite book of all time and I love reading all the spin-offs!
