Cloud Atlas: A Novel by David Mitchell
Cloud Atlas: A Novel

abigailrosepdx, January 21, 2013

Cloud Atlas completely blew me away. I consumed this book in two days, unable to put it down. Everything about it was vivid and rich. The characters popped off of the page, and the story wrapped itself around me as I read, gripping me tightly. I loved the formatting of this book, and the way David paced the chapters. Each story flowed into the next with an intriguing rhythm. One moment I felt enchanted and romantic, the next horrified and disgusted, and then suddenly I would find myself laughing at one of Cavendish's hilarious comments. I can say without hesitation that this was the best book I read in 2012.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The Perks of Being a Wallflower

In one word this book was emotional. It brought up so many emotions for anyone who has been through any sort of dysfunctional family situation. It was incredibly thought provoking, and I enjoyed thinking about it. Although it was very short, the writing was wonderful. The author did an amazing job crafting "Charlie's" writing style. I really felt like I was reading his letters. This book was very good, and I would definitely recommend giving it a read.
