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. :) 

Poignant and thought provoking

The Invention of Wings: A Novel - Sue Monk Kidd

I don't usually go for anything  historical but I'm trying to read outside my comfort zone at least once every few months. This book was very beautifully written and deeply moving. Handful and Sarah share a terrible yet unbreakable bond. I'm happy to have witnessed their journey.
