I read a great YA book yesterday, Donut Days by Lara Zielin.
It was one of those stories that I sat down to read, and didn’t get up until it was finished. I love those sorts of books!
I’m not usually one to jump on a book with a religious undertone, but there was something about this story that made me smile-so I decided to give it a read and I’m glad I did.
I think the thing I liked the most was the voice. Readers and writers talk so much about voice, because it’s just that important. So many time I’ve read a book with a great plot that fell short because I didn’t think the voice was authentic enough, but not this book. The voice really stood out for me.
I loved the main character and loved watching her own personal growth through the story. I highly suggest grabbing this book and giving it a read.
Speaking of just grabbing this book… that was one of my favorite parts- this book is already available on the Kindle! I wish all books came out immediatly on the Kindle. I would be like a gazillion times more likely to purchase them.
(Oh, and hey Amazon–if you’re listening- I would totally pay hardcover price for this earth saving convenience.)
If I haven’t already convinced you to buy this book, then check out the Author’s editing letter video here. She’s just as cute as the book!
