December Summary

January 3, 2011

I only managed to read three books in December but here is an overview of what I reviewed:

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys 

You Against Me by Jenny Downham   

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness & Siobhan Dowd  

Book of the Month 

 

I commend Ness for writing something so beautiful and moving. Never have I felt such emotion when reading a novel before. I think this is an important book for all adults and young adults to read, even if we are scared to read about such things. I know I felt somewhat terrified to delve into Conor’s world – to go on this journey with him. It is about the harsh reality of life and death and of how our emotions are not so simple in the end.
