I love The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman! I read and reviewed it for the blog back in 2008 and this time decided to listen to the audiobook, mainly because I knew that i would get through it if i listened to it (i'm having troubles actually reading physical books at home, school=arg) and also because Gaiman narrated it.
I absolutely love this book. It just hits all of my buttons; it is growing up and love and loss, about learning and becoming your own hero, about family and friendship and is very bittersweet. It is a book that i want to recommend to everyone and can't wait until the nieces are just a little older to send it to them! a 7.
