Note!!

DO NOT finish book about Nazi Germany before going to bed. IT WON'T END WELL.

That being said, The Book Thief is a good book. Not quite as well paced, plotted, or executed as the last one, The Blind Assassin (seriously. Read it. If you're in the Seattle area, I'll loan it to you). Before that was A Wizard of Mars and even before that, A Killing in Comics.

BUT!! I don't have any new books to read, and I would like to start a new one on Monday. So, I beseech you for recs.

Criteria for recommendations:
+ Must be positively or optimistically oriented (please, no more mass murders. My heart can't take it at the moment. Tragic irony is not high on my list of things to look forward to right now)
+ Must have an engaging narrative style.
+ Must be something I can read on the bus (Yes, I do think people are judging me at all times from all angles when it comes to stuff like that)
+ Must be available in paperback. THOUGH IF YOU LIVE IN SEATTLE AND I COULD BORROW IT... I still like it to be purse-sized.

...God I'm so demanding. BUT I KNOW YOU, YES YOU, ENJOY SHARING YOUR OPINIONS. :Db
