A Little of the Book Life

Obviously I love books. I'm here, aren't I? :)

Wintergirls - Laurie Halse Anderson Anderson created a haunting world that left me feeling very disturbed, but in a good way. The way she wrote it, the things Lia thought and said gave more depth to the character that otherwise would not have been there. I loved how she 'struck out' words to show how she wasn't comfortable with things or was afraid to admit things. After she stole her grandmother's knife and attempted suicide, the blank pages after were an amazing addition and really made me pause for a moment, thinking - did she really? She didn't have it end in a cookie-cutter happy way, either, which made it very realistic, as I'm sure she was going for anyway.
