I read a lot. Probably 3-4 books a week. Some of the books are good, some not so good, some I don’t finish, but some are great. And they’re great for different reasons.
I love it when a book makes me both laugh and cry. I love it when I can’t put a book down, when it keeps me up at night and when it makes me get up early so I can keep reading.
A few books that have done that to me are The Help by Kathryn Stockett, Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. All different books, all beautifully written. Their stories will stay with you for a long time.
I love a book that makes me to remember it, makes me think about it for weeks after I’ve finished it. Makes me love it.
