Which one was your favorite read? The Graveyard Book and The Emerald Atlas sound really good to me. But I favor the supernatural in my reading. :)

Kourtney, there was something I liked in each of them, so I guess it's hard to pick just one favorite. =)

The Graveyard Book was awesome! I agree The Emerald Atlas sounds great, too. And I've heard good things about most of these books. Great list!

Brooke, I thought The Graveyard Book was great too! And so was The Emerald Atlas!

I loved Neil Gaiman's Sandman comic books. Gonna have to see if The Graveyard Book is on Kindle. :)
