Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
Man it's been a long time since I read this book. I think I had to have been in high school when my sister insisted that I read it. My work bookclub voted this as the October read. I had forgotten a lot about it. Things sort of started to come back to me as I was reading it, but damn if this isn't a thoughtful read.
It's one of those books that is super easy to read and yet can open things up to a lot of discussion, probably the main reason it has done so well in schools. I can't wait to see what people bring up in bookclub, reading it for the first time as adults. I can't help but believe that I may be looking at it with nostalgia goggles.
