On the blog in the past few days, I reviewed Twain's End and checked in for the readalongs of Alexander Hamilton and Headstrong.
This week, I'm hoping to read The Bluest Eye and Ariel Lawhon's upcoming Flight of Dreams.
It's Book Blogger Appreciation Week! Today is the first day and we are supposed to pick five books that represent us. This was a surprisingly difficult thing to narrow down!
I think the books that impacted me the most as a child were the Narnia books and A Wrinkle in Time. Narnia taught me to expect world-building and magic to amaze me and A Wrinkle in Time made me believe that girls could be complicated and spunky and heroes. As an adult, I love nonfiction that stretches me and makes me think about life in new ways; The Empathy Exams is a great example of this. I read a lot of fiction. I tend to gravitate toward really excellent historical fiction like A Constellation of Vital Phenomena or People of the Book.
