I’m always a bit skeptical of #1 bestsellers, new fiction at the top of all the lists. This one deserves everything–all the attention, awards, recognition. I’m in my busy season at work, trying to maintain consistency with my new websites (extracurricular activity), and I still finished this book in under a week. I went to take my necessary nap before heading into my long shift and I ended up reading the last 100 pages to the end. It’s magical. It’s stunning. It’s on the scale of “The Book Thief” good. Need I say more?
