book

Churlita is always talking about the books she has read. Seems I'm an all or nothing type of gal. I find a book I like - it consumes me until I finish it. And then I feel hesitant to start another, since I'll get consumed again. But I'll get over that.

In the meantime, here's a book that consumed me:
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

It was perfect at the time. A very easy read, almost to the point of being for teens, but too much explicit content to really be a teen book in my opinion. And has the supernatural in it, etc.

I found it at a thrift store. I don't mind spending money on books there, as it goes to a good cause. And I can donate it back!

My daughters both loved that book. I have yet to read it, but I'm sure I'll get around to it now that you've recommended it.

We have that in our Teen section here...looks good! Did you know it is the first book in a trilogy? Book two is called Rebel Angels and book three is The Sweet Far Thing.

Well, then, so much for it not being a book for teens. I guess I was thinking of someone like my niece who is 11...

Laura, now I have to go to the library...

Ha! Now I'm going to wonder how many times that book I'm looking at has been cycled through the thrift store.

That sounds like an interesting book! Happy reading!
