The best books I read last year are highlighted; my favorite, by far, was All the Light We Cannot See, which was set in Saint-Malo, one of the places I visited on my trip last summer. Runners-up are Tell the Wolves I'm Home and Fig (I really love the cover on that one, too.).  The ones with a * are YA/Gateway books I read to be in the loop at school.

“The burning moves toward my back, into my shoulder blades.
And this is where my wings would attach if only I could fly away.” 

“There are dark black buttons tattooed on my heart. 
I’ll carry them for the rest of my days.” 

“Open your eyes and see what you can with them 
before they close forever.”
