Twitterature: October 2014 Edition

by Stacey

Today is one of my favorite days of the month. It’s Twitterature day at Modern Mrs. Darcy.

Here’s what I have been reading…

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. I suggest you drop everything you are doing and read this book right now.  I read Station Eleven the same way I watch Homeland. I can’t quite look all the time but I also can’t stop watching. This book is creepy and nerve wracking and totally addicting.

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson.  If I hadn’t read Station Eleven this month, I’ll Give You the Sun would have definitely been my favorite. This book celebrates art, creativity and individuality. Great young adult message with an even more compelling story line. And how totally great is the cover?

The Greenglass House by Kate Milford. I really wanted to love this book because I haven’t found a  great middle grade book in a long time. Greenglass House reminded me of the Westing Game which is a good thing but I will say I only liked it. Didn’t love it.

  1. I haven’t heard of any of these, but I don’t think I’m up for creepy right now, so maybe I should read I’ll Give You the Sun. It sounds really good!

  2. I have Greenglass House checked out from the library right now. I’ve been really looking forward to it, so I’m disappointed to hear it wasn’t a standout.

      You should definitely still be excited about Greenglass House. I think I just wanted at the right place to read it- everyone else I know has loved it! Do come back and tell me what you thought!
