Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments I have Tabitha Suzuma's Forbidden on my 2011 TBR. I've heard so many great things about it, I think it's going to be a January read. :)

It was simultaneously the best and worst book I've ever read (but in good way, sort of -it made me cry, a lot, for days in fact). It's permanently branded into my brain. I will never forget it. If you have a heart it will break when reading this. It's that powerful. I'm in awe of the author to write something so...I don't even have the words. It's an emotional rollercoaster.


message 8: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Awesome. I cry at just about everything, so I'm looking forward to a nice ugly-cry-face bawl with this one. :)
