The Man Who was Thursday
by G.K. Chesterton
This is the best book I have ever read. It was delicious. It was witty and clever. It was intelligent and deep. It was exciting. It made love to my soul. I am also in love with the dedication poem that precedes the story.
Two of my favorite lines from the book:
‘That’s a pity,’ he said, ‘because I am.’
‘Bad is so bad, that we cannot but think good an accident; good is so good, that we feel certain that evil could be explained.’
Have any of you read The Man Who was Thursday? What did you think of it?
by Elie Wiesel
The book moves at warp speed and didn’t leave me sobbing like similar books have in the past, but this line gave me pause… I read it over and over as my eyes filled with tears:
At six o’clock that afternoon, the first American tank stood at the gates of Buchenwald.
Fifty Shades of Grey
by E L James
She is the most repetitive and dull author I have ever read in my life.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

This goes on my list of favorite books. The sequel and the movie both come out next year – can’t wait!
Anna and the French Kiss
by Stephanie Perkins
I loved this book and now I want to visit Paris. I never had a strong desire to before reading this. I also love that this book is a product of NaNoWriMo.
by Emily Giffin
I also read Something Borrowed by the same author earlier this month, but forgot to record it.
The Phantom Tollbooth

I read this book when I was a teenager and was just as gripped by it this time as I was then.
