That's My Vote and I'm Sticking to It....I Think.
The surprisingly cool breaths of the zombies are upon me. Once in an earlier bracket I cast away I’ll Give You the Sun and now it’s back and chasing me. The creepy Night Gardener has been vanquished but the blue/grey zombie spouting toilet licker, toilet licker will not rest. What to do….what to do.
The Nazi Hunters was interesting and was very easy and important to read; two adjectives that don’t often go together. The Night Gardener is the creepy story you want to read to freak out your kids – but not too much (no calls from home). I’ll Give You the Sun is flawed but there are parts that soar and maybe these flights should be acknowledged. My twenty year old daughter phoned me to tell me how great it was, Westminster School practically shrink wrapped their school in the book jacket….hmmmmm.
Once again I am forced into the best kind of vote….I think there is space for all these books in my library so I’m going to do something today that scares me since my yoga lunch bag told me to! My vote goes to the zombie pick – I’ll Give You the Sun.
