The Book Thief / Johannes Cabal the Necromancer
The Book Thief - (This book is one of my newer favorites. It is incredible; he uses language in ways I had never before conceived of. It is perhaps an unconventional read, but it has taken its place among my favorite books of all time- as it has among all those to whom I've recommended it).
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
Hunger games... Just like with Harry Potter.. If you havent read the book and Just watched the movie you are missing out on so much. The book is: 1) Significantly better and 2) You don't have to wait for the next movie to knows what happens next!
