July 2013
The Giver by Lois LowryThis had been on my list since September 2010, but a post on reddit "books that made you think wow" recently inspired me to go read it. I enjoyed it more than I expected, I'd previously read nothing about the plot so even the title was unknown to me. It didn't make me say wow though - maybe if I'd read it when I was 10 or so, before Fahrenheit 451 etc. Not bad, but I probably won't chase down the rest of the quartet.
