      House of Leaves

      House of Leaves
      by Mark Z. Danielewski
      Student Pick: Sabrina Z. from RADP

      To me, this book is a masterpiece that drags you in from the moment you start reading it. It is a good thriller and a love story (depends on who is reading it), and a whole lot of crazy. House of Leaves is one of those books where you can find something new every time you read it. It was a unique reading experience.
      Winter Garden

      Winter Garden
      by Kristin Hannah
      Chelsea's Pick

      Set in World War II Russia, this is an amazing story about the power of the human’s will to survive. This story is both heartwarming and heartbreaking, and is definitely a must-read!
