Books to the ceiling, books to the sky, my pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard by the time I read them!
Such a beautiful, heart-wrenching book. It was utterly flawless. Once I started, I couldn't put it down - I think I read it in about 4 hours. The romance was a sweet note to the violent overtones that was Ava's life. I could hardly comprehend her bravery. I would hope that in the same situation, I'd be just as strong.
I did love how Ava's escape from what was happening around her was fairy tales and song. Reminding her of her humanity, that there were other people out there who felt as she did, who loved as she did. Would be very hard to remember that when all around you, people are callously murdering people.
Basically anything Kate Forsyth writes is a must read for me. You should make them must reads too.
