The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry: A Novel - Rachel Joyce

Lovely, melancholy, thoughtful novel. This was definitely not a happy story, and yet I didn't feel deflated as I reached the end. While it was obviously the story of Harold's journey, I think Maureen's pilgrimage was actually the more affecting, for me. The idea of choosing to acknowledge the mistakes you have made and purpose to make you life better is something everyone has to struggle with, at some point in their life, and it's a hard thing to choose to make that change. I thought Haarold and Maureen's re-awakening relationship was a beautiful love story. I really, really enjoyed this novel.

Charmed Life - Diana Wynne Jones

Good heavens, did I enjoy this. One of THE most aggravating baddies I've ever encountered, a plucky young anti-heroine, and Cat. Who wouldn't feel sorry for Cat? This is, more than anything, the story of how Cat decides to reclaim his power - literally - and be in charge of his own life. It's a grand thing for a young person to be able to do, and Diana Wynne Jones writes it beautifully. This is good YA fantasy that I'm happy to have discovered, and I can't wait to read more.
