The 100 questions are getting lamer and lamer, so I may just give up on them, even though they do get me writing.
I think I mentioned I signed up for Goodreads a while back, and have been inspired to read the 200 or so fiction books on my Kindle, sprinkled through the fan fiction on it. I keep the non-fiction on my Kindle Fire. I read a lot. 🙂 So I moved all the books to a Books folder. I am just so darn clever. I don’t think I’ll ever get a job as a book reviewer, because I can’t always find my words. Anyway, this is the latest book I read, and here’s the review.
The Illegal Gardener by Sara Alexi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book starts out small and almost seems uninteresting. An illegal immigrant trying to get day-labor work, and as you continue reading, it sort of blossoms out, like a flower. Growing from the small beginning into a beautiful work that keeps growing, layer after layer. The narrative is mesmerizing, I felt drawn further and further into the story. I think this is the only book I’ve given five stars. Get past the first chapter and you won’t be able to put it down.
