“Change often starts with the smallest of whispers. Like-minded people building it up to a roar.”
― T.J. Klune, The House in the Cerulean Sea
Today is the last day of our #BestReadsOf2020 and we are voting for our big winner!
Our best book of the year.
Well mine is that small, unassuming book whose cover looks like a middlegrade book but that feels like a warm hug : The House in The Cerulean Sea.
I fell hard for that book that charmed me completely. Once I finished it, I had a huge smile on my face and my heart was at peace.
That’s the best word to describe this story.
You know when, once in many years, you stumble upon a book and everything just …clicks? Well that was what happened in this read that was a book club read.
These characters were so moving, charming, cute, awkward and heart-warming. I wanted to take them in my arms and give them big hugs!
Under that lovely surface also hide deep messages about differences, what makes a monster, acceptance, not being defined by our DNA, making our own choices to be good and …so much more!
This book is magical, charming, poetic …. I don’t have enough words to describe its awesomeness!
I just hope that there are many like-minded people who will think like I do, whisper and build up that book’s fame like a roar! 😉
What was your favorite read of the year?
Thanks for reading!
