Have you ever started reading a book, took a break from it, and when you got back to it you had to start reading it from the beginning because you forgot everything you read? I did that a couple of times with The Giver. Earlier this week I decided to give it another shot. This time I couldn’t put it down.
It’s YA fiction but I think that adults will enjoy it as well. I don’t want to give anything away but some of the themes really got me thinking. Like, philosophically thinking. It’s a pretty heavy book.
I’m looking for more YA books to read. Got any suggestions?**
