It has NOT been since October since I posted anything! Good grief! Where does the time go...??!! Well, it's not like I haven't read anything since October so here are a couple of really nice ones.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
If this one doesn't clinch your heart, you don't have one. I think I read the entire book holding my breath. And the illustrations by Jim Kay are INCREDIBLE! Wiki calls it a "low fantasy novel written for children." Not sure I would've described it that way. It is a story that is simplistically written, brushing away the literary noise so all you have to focus on is the heart-wrenching, all-too-real story. Heavy. Honest. Darkly beautiful.
Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker
Read any good books lately?
I read more than just classic novels. This is where I post about recent books I have read. Have you read the same book? Got a different opinion? Let me know! I'd love to hear about it.
