The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly: “Each chapter of this winning…novel opens with a quotation from ‘On the Origin of Species’—a forbidden book that her own grandfather turns out to have hidden away. Together they study Darwin’s masterpiece, leading to a revolution in Callie’s ideas of what she might accomplish on her own.”—New York Times Book Review. #Books #Kids #The_Evolution_of_Calpurnia_Tate
What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
A Raising In The Sun. The words powerful, heart-warming and challenging are so overused to describe drama that it is hard to know what to do when you run into a film that really needs those words to describe it. And this film needs those words, deserves those words and delivers on them.
Tess of the D'Urbervilles- Penguin Classics. A beautiful edition of a fantastic read- Thank you, @Rachel Williams ! Hardy has a unique writing style- a bit understated (think: Faulkner's polar opposite), but the characters are incredibly human and the story itself is completely enthralling. You can actually judge this book by its beautiful cover. ;)
