Favorite: Retribution Falls — I really, really liked this action-packed novel about swashbuckling sky pirates! I’m excited to read more in the series.

Least favorite: Dear Mr. Knightley — I wasn’t a fan of the writing style, and the Daddy-Long-Legs-inspired plot REALLY didn’t translate well to the 21st century!
