For the Love of Books
How to Save a Life: The characters in this book will stay with me for awhile... especially the "innocence" of Mandy. This book was packed with strength and hope. I never want to spoil a book for anyone, so I am doing my best to be vague, but the steadfastness of the mom in this book is amazing and I wish I could be that way.
The Sky is Everywhere: If you like a slightly twisted love story with an underdog... this book is for you. This book hooked me from the very beginning and I read it in one sitting because I had no other choice... I had to see how it all played out!
Wintergirls: It is no secret that this book is about an eating disorder. I didn't personally connect with it, but I finished it and I can see how some people would connect with it. The main character is perfectly realistic and so are the situations. This book wasn't my favorite, but I am not sad that I read it.
I did fail at my 2012 goal to read 100 books, but I went on so many adventures and met so many characters that I am going to attempt the challenge again! Any recommendations, or tips on staying on pace?
