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.
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.
Lisa Wingate has written over 30 novels, many of which are in series of three to six books. The Prayer Box is the first of six books in Carolina Heirlooms. Although it is a part of a series, the book can be read by itself; so you don’t have to feel obligated to read through all of them because they end in cliffhangers.
First, I need to thank whoever donated this novel to the Mendon Public Library so that I could discover it at the bag sale. I went into A Single Shot prepared for a sub-par story that I was reading just to waste time; but Jones’ story did not waste my time at all. I could not read this novel fast enough.
