My Never Ending List

I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.

Wow! I have to say it again, Wow! I thought this novel was amazing, stimulating, unexpected and calming. I know not everyone will agree with me and that’s okay, as that is how novels are supposed to be. Novels speak to people in different ways but literally this novel got me. I loved the spontaneity of their relationship, how they were with one another, their comfort level and the peace that they had with one another. They were in the moment and I felt I was there grasping everything they were experiencing. I loved the stories that Parker wrote. His imagination was amazing. They were twisted and unpredictable but the mood that he creates within them says something about him and what he sees. I loved the adventure that they took together. How her wisdom showed him things about the world that he didn’t know and how he showed her that saving her was worth it. I noticed as I read this novel, the words took on a special flow. I couldn’t read the novel fast, I read every word and I savored their journey together for everything felt important. Unfortunately, I liked the ending. It wasn’t a perfect one yet it was exactly how it was supposed to be and it fit the novel. I almost didn’t want the novel to end but I knew this novel must have an ending for it only seemed fitting. What a great novel and one I would love to read again in the future.
