#LiteraryLuck Day 6: Unique character names.
I love unique character names. I know some people hate it, but I am super into it.
Here is a list of the characters and the books they're from.
Blue from the Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
Miracle from Dancing on the Edge by Han Nolan
Feather from The First Part Last by Angela Johnson
Red from Looking for Red by Angela Johnson
This was a quick read o my lunch break the last 2 days and part of my goal to read the Michael Printz award list. Whether you‘re 16 or 26 or 46, that fear that you‘re going to screw up at parenting is the same, and I think Angela Johnson nailed it.
Compelling account of life as a teen parent, specifically a young father. It captures the expected ups and downs, and throws in a few extra wrenches to make it a tear-jerker at times. I listened to this on Audible, and I really enjoyed the narration.
I had the pleasure of being exposed to this book through Audible's #ProjectListenUp.
My #litsyavatar #profilepicture is a selfie from a hiking trip I took this fall. A yoga studio hosted the hike, and we meditated at the top of the mountain. Other than reading, yoga is my go-to for #selfcare. @Chelleo
The book I tagged is a new #audiobook I started listening to this morning! I'll post more about digging into audiobooks later.
Although the writing seems a bit flowery at times for teenage male narrator, I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick and engaging read. Like most "problem novels," it sheds light on a difficult subject that many teens are interested in. Unlike many simple "problem novels," it shows the deep, inner thoughts of the narrator. The organization of chapters creates suspense, insuring readers won't want to put it down. #diversebooks #ebook #overdrive
"But I figure if the world were really right, humans would live life backward and do the first part last. They'd be all knowing in the beginning and innocent in the end.
Then everybody could end their life on their momma or daddy's stomach in a warm room, waiting for the soft morning light."
