I love reading although I don’t always have time for it. When I was a kid I didn’t enjoy reading at all. But then when I went to grade 8 my mom took us to the library and said that we HAVE to pick a book and read it. So that Summer I started my love affair with books.
Today’s topic for our 30 day Blogging Babes challenge we’re writing about 3 books on our book shelves. Since I’m currently living in Korea and didn’t bring any books with me I can only list the 3 books that I currently have on my bookshelf
Its about a 17 year old boy with Autism (Asperger to be precise) and an intense interest in Crime investigation. Every time there is a crime in his town he is present to investigate the clues himself. Then there is a murder in his town and he is the prime suspect. The story deals with the trails and tribulations that families with Autistic children go through. It was a really interesting read and I enjoyed it so much that I bought some more books from Jodi Picoult.
A book about two girls who’s parents are drug dealers. Their parents die over the Winter and they bury them in the back yard because they are scared that if the authorities find out about it, that they will be sent to a foster home and be separated. Its a story of how harsh life can be but also that there are some people who are willing to help us even if we did something wrong. It starts off kind of gruesome and I had to put the book down for a few days but I’m really glad that I ended up finishing it. As a final note, there is a lot of swearing in this book but it depicts the socioeconomic status that the 2 girls have within their society.
OK these are 3 separate books but I included them under one book 🙂
I have only watched the movie based on the book with Daniel Craig and I wanted to read the books but haven’t had the time yet. My sister in law bought me the whole series for Christmas and I’m planning to read them before the end of this year!!!
