In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian Saturday Book Share The Alex Crow

”Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share”.

Here’s to celebrating books that strike my fancy every week!

The Alex Crow by Andrew Smith – High School, mixed genres – Release Date March 3rd, 2015-

Book Talk: What happens when you mix human scientific testing, bringing extinct creatures back from the wild, terrible summer camp, bombs, a child rescued from a refrigerator, and a special expedition near Antarctica? A tiny glimpse into the complicated, fantastic The Alex Crow.

Quite the complicated fascinating story packed with unexpected twists, turns, and more. Little bit of a mix of different genres and quite the intriguing characters and you care about and are shocked by simultaneously. There certainly a portions of the book where you just buckle up and cling on for the ride that Andrew Smith carefully conducts. Made me appreciate life and experiences I didn’t have to have. Really enjoyed every minute of the book, recommended!!
Goodreads Summary: “Once again blending multiple story strands that transcend time and place, Grasshopper Jungle author Andrew Smith tells the story of 15-year-old Ariel, a refugee from the Middle East who is the sole survivor of an attack on his small village. Now living with an adoptive family in Sunday, West Virginia, Ariel’s story of his summer at a boys’ camp for tech detox is juxtaposed against those of a schizophrenic bomber and the diaries of a failed arctic expedition from the late nineteenth century. Oh, and there’s also a depressed bionic reincarnated crow.”

About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
