Every Day by David Levithan
Every Day

Melissa Levine, January 1, 2013

This is an entirely original novel that is both entertaining and thought provoking. While it is a young adult novel, it is a great book that readers of all ages should enjoy. The message about humanity, and how similar we all are at our core, is profound. At the same time, Levithan celebrates our differences by allowing us to glimpse into a day in the life of a variety of characters, reminding us of the beauty and ugliness of humanity. Ultimately, this is one of the most compelling and moving novels I have read. Levithan is a true romantic who paints a clear picture of what love really means and the beauty of finding a soulmate. A is a soul who reminds us of our own humanity.

Glaciers (Tin House New Voice) by Alexis Smith

It is rare to find a book that is so beautifully written and that ties together so neatly. I won't get into the story details because I think it is best to discover all the surprises on your own. It is amazing that the story takes place in one day, with interesting flashbacks providing more depth for the main character. The book was short but left me thinking about it for days. It managed to be romantic in a way that was not typical "chick lit" but that had a deeper meaning.
