A Wind in the Door – I loved this book because Charles Wallace is so brave. He takes every risk and travels to the tiniest space possible. It is a wonderful sequel to A Wrinkle in Time but I think I need to re-read it to get more sense out of it.
Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng is such a good writer!! One reviewer on Goodreads said “she knows so much about each of us.” The book is very intimate and a slow burn to a devastating end 😦 Sadly, it is the lives of ordinary people. I think that’s what makes it so depressing.
The Color of Earth – This is a manhwa about a young girl becoming a woman. It’s the first in a trilogy that (Spoiler Alert: ends in her getting married.) The scenery and symbolism is beautiful! It cannot have been easy becoming a woman in any era. It’s a clumsy process but also so relatable.
Breadcrumbs – This is a fairy tale that turns some stereotypes on its head. It’s like the Snow Queen, but the girl saves the boy and she is an adopted Indian American. This book is kind of a slow burn too and depressing because the adults don’t seem very supportive of the children at all! 😦
Wonderstruck – I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! It’s about Ben and Rose, who are both deaf and their stories . It’s like watching a movie on a paper. It is such a awesome, sad, and wonderful story. It takes us to the 1920s and 1970s and museums in New York. I want to see my life depicted in this format although it might be kind of boring 😛
