Have you ever read a book where the writing is so beautiful that you wish you had an ounce of the talent that writer had? Books that really blow you away with their prose and language?
I've been lucky enough to read two books like that this year.
First, Kirsten Hubbard's Like Mandarin, which I read on my Kindle when it came out and then procedded to buy paperback copies for my classroom library because I knew my students would love it.
Second, Nova Ren Suma's Imaginary Girls. Oh my gosh. I'm reading it right now and am blown away by her writing. I'm trying to read it slowly because I want it to last, but the story just keeps pushing me forward faster and faster.
Uhm....and can we talk about the beautiful covers of each?
Have you read this books? If not, you MUST go buy them right now. Go....buy them!
What books have you read where you've fallen in love with the language? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
