Cute fable style book
Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt

I would fail at the lesson this book is trying to impart, but it was a charming story.

 

I think the part I loved most was the way it was written, with the heat descriptions, and the little asides that made the setting.

But she had never been curious about it. Nothing ever seems interesting when it belongs to you—only when it doesn't.

 

Only a couple pages in and I already want to quote every-other sentence. I don't know how much I'll like the story yet (obviously) but the writing is great.

Absolutely painful and gorgeous
Deerskin - Robin McKinley

It is lovely, and it is terrible and... hell, how do you even start to address something like being raped by your own father, let alone cope, accept, heal, move on. McKinley takes a good stab at it, and it's beautiful and wounding at the same time, and feels pretty much like abrading in a way.

 

I'm not making much sense, but I'm still riding the "just finished" wave of feelings. I thought it was an excellent book that I'd like to own, but likely will never re-read, or would feel too comfortable recommending. Yet, by all tbr's I swear, I do not regret reading it.

 

And if anyone feels I should've put a spoiler tag, they can go screw themselves. This is not the type of themes to be treading into unawares.

Holy shit. McKinley did go there. I'm a bit shocky. And seriously re-thinking my recommendation bracket. Holy shit.

Lord. This is absolutely gorgeous writing. It's just starting and not only I already know that I'll love it, but that I want to buy my own copy too.
