Tara Westover grew up on a mountain in Idaho and that was all of the world that she knew. Educated is an amazing recount of her life on the mountain.
The Road, a novel by Cormac McCarthy, is a post-apocalyptic story about a man and his son who are walking to the coast with only a shopping cart carrying a few things. The story not only demonstrates a perception of what the end of world would look like, but also the deep bond that the father and son have.
Ruta Sepetys has written three books, all of which are young adult historical fiction. Although she writes in what may seem like a specific niche, Sepetys draws in readers of all ages and interests. I have read all three of her novels and loved each one equally. Out of the Easy is Sepetys second novel.
Shadows of the Workhouse is the second book in Jennifer Worth’s, The Midwife Trilogy. As usual, I did not know the book I was reading was a part of a series, so I did not read Call the Midwife first. I can assure you that I am on the wait list for it on Overdrive now though!
While going through the notes I took while reading Paper Towns, I realized that only about 5-6 of the notes were positive. I guess I disliked this novel more than I thought. Paper Towns is John Green’s third book. The Fault in Our Stars is his fifth. I haven’t read The Fault in Our Stars but from what I’ve heard, I’m assuming it is much better than Paper Towns.
