Life of Pi- I had to read this in high school, but I never finished. This past summer I sat down to properly read through it and I loved it. I completely forgot the movie was coming out this year, but after finally reading it I was excited for the movie, and the movie did not disappoint. One or two minor things were changed but this did not affect the brilliance of the story at all.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Sixteen year old Pi is left on a lifeboat with animal companions, including a 450 lb. Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Plot twist at the end.

First book of the year! One of Jake's favorites, but it reminded of a horrible book I read in middle school, so I never read it. I actually really enjoyed it, it was amazing how anticlimactic the whole thing was, but that's what made it so special.
