The 2017 posts I’m most proud of!

I want to talk about the posts I’m most proud of, those I put most work into, were the most inventive, etc. I think it’s good to sometimes show that you’re proud of what you’ve achieved and that’s what I’m doing in this post. Plus, it will make it easier for you to find the best posts on my blog! Continue reading

Kids of Appetite by David Arnold // a work of art

I read this book for the first time this summer and I fell in love with it. It’s now one of my favourites. After re-reading it about two weeks ago, I decided it’s time for me to review it!

Goodreads blurb:22466429

Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.
It begins with the death of Vic’s father.
It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.
The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.
But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between.

This is a story about:

1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.
12. Falling in love with a song.
13. Falling in love.
