Quote of the Week: We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. Dr. Seuss
Recently, I've read a couple of books I'd like to share with you. I think you'll enjoy them too.
if i stay
Penguin Young Readers
YA, 272 pages
I really enjoyed this book. It's sad, it's beautiful, it makes a person stop and think and be grateful for what you have. From the back cover:
Mia had everything: a loving family, a gorgeous, adoring boyfriend, and a bright future full of music and full of choices. Then, in an instant, almost all of that is taken from her.
I won't say any more, except this is one of those books that will stay with you for a long time.
Another book I just finished:
White Cat, the Curse Workers #1
Simon & Schuster Children's Publisher
YA, 320 pages
This story is quite different than if i stay. It's the tale of a family of curse workers that can change a person's emotions, their memories, their luck, simply by touching them. They're criminals because curse work is illegal.
Cassell tries to be "normal" but his dreams, his brothers' weird behavior, and secrets send Cassell in search of the truth. This story contains a lot of twists and turns that kept me reading.
So here you have some additional reads for your leisurely summer.
Enjoy. Happy Reading.
