I love to read.
Give me a good book and a chai latte and I'm yours forever.
I'm not afraid to put a book down if it hasn't grabbed me within the first chapter. Too many fish in the sea to waste time on one that won't bite.
I especially love to read books that are recommended by others; however, I usually hesitate to return the favor, knowing that our tastes in literature might be oceans apart.
So today I'm going to take a giant risk and not only make a suggestion, I'm going so far as to say you NEED to read this book:
Any person, at any stage in life, in any socioeconomic level, will be changed by this book.
Very few books have touched my soul the way this book reached in and snatched me. I bawled through the heart of the story line. I'm just thankful that it was 11:30 at night so that mama didn't have to explain why she was a blubbery mess with mascara running down her cheeks.
A word of caution: Don't flip to the back of the book and peruse the photographs. It will be a plot spoiler for you. Spoken from experience, unfortunately.
Have you read it? What did you think?
Have you read the sequel?
What book has snatched you, changed you?
I love a good recommendation!
