What book do you think everyone should read? If you could gift the entire population with one book?You know how unfair that is right? Asking me to choose just one? My mind immediately (really) shouted RUBY OLIVER & Melina Marchetta simultaneously. Yes my mind argues with itself. What's that to you?
The problem with Melina Marchetta is that it's nearly imposible to chose just one of her books. Initially I thought, "Jellicoe Road" because it's just a brilliant book and everyone should read it. Really if you haven't and you like intelligent YA go read it. But lately I lean towards the Lumatere Chronicles because they're deep high fantasy that say a lot about human nature, war, love, family and forgiveness.
However, if I have to give the WHOLE WORLD only one book. I'm actually going to choose the Ruby Oliver series by E. Lockhart (and don't you dare say I can't pick a series!). I've often said that I want to give every teenage girl a copy of this book. So how could I pass up the opportunity to give it to everyone. Ruby Oliver is fun feminism. The book seems like light fluffy chick lit, but what you're really getting is a great story involving slut-shaming, girl on girl hatred, gossip and learning to love yourself. Really, all teenage girls should read this book. (Read my review of the first 3 books in this series)
