Sunday Salon: Books Read in October 2012

Mostly, I’ve been reading Middle Grade Science Fiction and Fantasy for the Cybils awards. A few other books, some young adult titles and one nonfiction memoir, inserted themselves into my reading this month, just for the sake of variety, although the sci/fi and fantasy books are varied enough, running the gamut from talking animals to space travel to witches to goblins to ghosts to magical realms of yore.
