30 Days of Books: With five days left, I'm getting better at this!

Day 24- A book that you wish more people would've read: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. When this book was released in America, the last chapter, for whatever reason, was cut out. What's so important about that last chapter is that it basically explains all the violence and horrible things that happens and, you know, completes the point that Burgess is trying to get across. The writing in this book is fantastic and well worth reading, but still pretty violent (just a warning, it's still not a fluffy book by any means).

Day 25- A character who you can relate to the most: Meg Murry from A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. After reading about the Wakefield twins, it was refreshing to have an awkward heroine who relied on her intelligence and resourcefulness rather than her social skills and looks. Plus, she lands that dreamboat Calvin. Rawr.


  1. I LOVE A Wrinkle in Time! Although it's been forever since I've read it. Did you read the whole series?

  2. I've only read A Wrinkle in Time and A Swiftly Tilting Planet- someday!
