Books and Crannies

Reading. Writing. Geeking Out.

In Which I Compare My Books To Dessert

— feeling hungry
Echo - Pam Muñoz Ryan

If this book were a food, it would be angel food cake. Something light, airy, and can be enjoyed by any aged person, although kids probably appreciate it best. So far, so good...


— feeling amazing
I'll Give You the Sun - Jandy Nelson

This is the best book I've read in a while, minus To Kill a Mockingbird. A gorgeous story, lyrical and full of prose. The artistic referencing in the book really peeked my interest in the book, too. I recommend to art-lovers, book lovers, and readers of all genres (though specifically LGBT and contemporary...)

"You become responsible forever for what you have tamed.

The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint Exupery


To Kill a Mockingbird, 50th Anniversary Edition - Harper Lee

I know it's unoriginal to call this your favorite book, but, well, I don't care. This is an amazing book, a classic like no other, that will be cherished by generation to come. I love its simple narrative, so childlike and naive, and the great story our protagonist, Scout, follows. What an amazing book! I couldn't even wait to read it in school - I read it a year before it was scheduled on my reading list.
