Five Literary Gifts

Because it’s the season of holidays and gifting. :)

The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman – The alethiometer the Master gives to Lyra guides her on an adventure more treacherous than she ever imagined.

Lost It by Kristen Tracy – Tess hoped her Christmas present for her boyfriend would keep her on his mind, but instead it reveals an inadvertent lie.

The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner – An unwanted gift of a pair of earrings becomes the key to deciding two wars — one of politics, the other of the heart.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – The burnt loaf of bread Peeta offered kept Katniss’s family from starving, and ties her to him even when she tries to stand alone.

Nation by Terry Pratchett – It was meant as an act of self-defense, but the gun Daphne holds out and Mau accepts becomes the beginning of tragedy-defying bond.
