books are breath


A life without books is a very hollow existence indeed. Nothing else has the power to make me laugh out loud, cry like a baby, or scream in rage like reading a book can. I am open to all genres and am willing to give almost anything a try, even if it's outside my normal scope. My faves are thrillers/suspense but I am also into paranormal, drama, chick lit and YA. This is my first blog, so forgive my ignorance and if you see something I can improve, do tell. :)

The Impossible Knife of Memory - Laurie Halse Anderson

I read Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson and the stark truth and searing emotion of the book really tore me to pieces. I haven't yet cracked the cover of The Impossible Knife of Memory (and yes I am reading the hardback, not on my Nook HD+).  I have so much anticipation about this book. I really hope it makes me feel, not just process. Here we go!!!
