i'm a sucker for the classics i guess.
yeah def...i think it was when i first started reading real books that had depth...that spite fences book was about a white girl growing up in the south during the 50'...just kinda had an impact on me because i was coming out of a catholic school and into a public one...so it just kinda threw me through a hoop when i read it...i guess it just depends on what's going on in your life for how books are going to impact you
god i hope that made some kind of sense hahah
another book i forgot to mention was "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult
it's about two sisters [obviously] and one is dealing with cancer...it touches base with designer babies...it makes you consider what lengths you would go to for your own family...and it makes me cry like a little girl every time i read it...i HIGHLY suggest it
