Kim Reads Books About Things

I like most books, particularly children's and YA. The fact that I am 21 does not and will never hinder this, and it shouldn't. A good book is a good book is a good book. Anyway. I'll read anything I can get my hands on if the mood suits me.

The Garden of Eve

The Garden of Eve - K.L. Going The next time I read this book, I want it to be on a cold, late-fall night. This book sucked me into its atmosphere like few others have managed to, with its shivering cold and withering dead trees. This is a modern day fairy tale if there ever was one, and I mean that in the best way possible; it deals with a very real fear, that of death and loss, and does so in a fresh and original way. I'm familiar with the story of the Garden of Eden, but I didn't catch all of the symbolism, though some of it bordered on corny at times. Still, I found a lot to love about this book, especially its ability to find magic in a highly unlikely atmosphere. Simply beautiful.

Oh, and I really love the cover.
