Day 1: Your Favorite Book, and Why.
“The Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold
I consider it nearly impossible to choose between the books I’ve read. I love just about each and every one of them for different reasons, and they are all special in their own unique ways. However, if I had to pick one to declare as my ultimate favorite, I would feel somewhat obligated to choose “The Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold, seeing as though I have read it at least five times and have yet to grow sick of it. Unlike most of the other novels I’ve read, “The Lovely Bones” - in my opinion, anyhow - contains flawless language, an engaging plot, likeable characters and deeper meanings. It is delicate but raw, subtle but honest, and both escapist and realistic - often mercilessly so. I read this book for the first time in ninth grade, and ever since I could only wish to produce such a stunning piece of writing as Alice Sebold has created. I own the movie adaptation as well as the book (the paperback version with the film cover), and I am hoping to buy a copy with the original cover as well.
