The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
I came across this at Barnes and Nobles while waiting for my tutoree. It seems magical and an interesting read. I can’t wait to devour this one.
Wonder by R. J. Palacio
I know, I know. I’ve been hanging on to this one for quite a while. I can’t just seem to get a good grip on this book. I start reading it, and then something just happens to distract me. Maybe there is too much going on in my mind.
The Zoo Keeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman
And don’t even get me started on this one. I’m really into Holocaust stories but i just never got the chance to sink my teeth into this one.
The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
This is one of those books that you get introduced to in school. My 6th grade teacher read this out loud for us and I had fallen in love with it ever since.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
One of my most favorite books of all time. I had a blast ripping it apart when I used it for my undergraduate thesis paper. And to those of you who don’t know, Frankenstein is the scientist that made the creature, not the creature itself.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Another favorite. Out of all the books we were required to read in 11th grade, this was the best one. I hung onto each word as I read though every page of this book. I loved it.
Your Soul is a River by Nikita Gill
You carry both lightning and thunder in that space between your bones and soul. Become the storm you are hiding from, a hurricane does not run from the rain.
