Welcome to my blog! Since this is my first post on BookLikes, I thought it would be appropriate to introduce myself. I'm Julia C., and I am to write the posts on my blog, "Julia's Blog" (creative, I know). My favorite genre is realistic fiction, however, if a book has enough description, it will pass in my eyes. I am currently reading Passenger by Alexandra Bracken at the recommendation of my close friend. While I am not particularly far into it, I can tell a lot about its tone and style.
So far, I have met the main characters, Etta and Nicholas. While their stories are not currently related, I predict that they will intertwine fairly soon. I have also noticed that Alexandra Bracken includes great amounts of detail in her writing. For example, the text says,"it looked like an endless ribbon of steps that had been draped over the rough, rocky face of the cliff, rising and falling with the natural shape of the landscape" (Bracken 8).
As I read more, I will learn even more about Ms. Bracken's style and techniques, but until then, I can view her website (http://www.alexandrabracken.com/) for information.
I will be sure to post as I get further in my novel!
