I am well aware that there is a large group of my friends who are reading rubbish, AKA the Twilight series. I know, Edward is amazing and the story is so gripping and blah, blah, blah, I’ve heard it all… from the jr, highers at youth group! Haha! I thought I would share my thoughts on a couple other books I have read, just in case you all want to venture outside a fourth grade reading level. I kid, I kid.
Okay, the first book I LOVED was Water for Elephants. The characters we so well developed and you think its going to end one way, but then there’s a twist and you’re like, whoa, didn’t see that one comin’. You really end up feeling for the characters and I couldn’t put the book down. It goes back and forth from the present to 50 years ago with a traveling circus. Really original. Two thumbs up! But I will warn you, there are a couple of extremely explicit sex scenes and you can’t fast forward a book, you know? So, if you don’t like that kind of stuff (not that I like that kind of stuff, but I can see the forest for the trees, people) you might want to skip a few pages here and there.
The other book that I read in one day (and I haven’t done that since fourth grade when I was obsessed with Babysitters Club… oooooh, you Twilighters might like that series! Ha! I just can’t get enough of this!) Anyway, the other book I read in one day was Sarah’s Key. Sooooooooo good. It takes place during the Holocaust, which usually makes me tummy hurt when I read about it, but this was such a good story. I cried, I laughed, I was so sad when it ended. But i loved it! Two thumbs up, way up!
So, does anyone have any good suggestions for a good read?
