I'm not sure if you've looked out your window lately but it's December! And with December comes snow (sometimes) and a few holidays, but most importantly...my birthday!! Yippee!!
So I just finished reading the most amazing book. Yep. You guessed it. The Space Between Trees by Katie Williams. And I'm still thinking about it.
I don't know anything at all about the author but she's pretty much got us all figured out. Her MC's observations are so sincere and real that I have to keep reminding myself that she is a character in a book. She doesn't exist. I can't run over to her house and give her a hug or invite her over for a slumber party.
In the beginning she kinda freaked me out. She's friendless and lonely and I was nervous she would break my heart. I worried her new friends would ruin her or change her. But she has this inner strength that made me realize she doesn't need anybody.
She just thinks she does.
And I can't get over the cover. I have to admit the cover alone would have called to me in the bookstore.
It's that cool.
So run on out and pick up this book, or order it, or download it. Just do whatever you do to get the words in front of you. NOW!
Seriously. I have to say I wish I wrote like Katie Williams. Or at the very least I wish I thought like her.
And stay tuned for the next book review! I've been waiting for this book to come out for like forever, although it feels like a lot longer than that.
So off I go to read Matched by Ally Condie.
It's gonna be good. I can feel it!
