there is yet meaning

I have been thoroughly impressed by Lois Lowry's, The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger.  They are not a series, but rather- companions.

I do not even want to say anything about them because that is the way in which a friend pressed me to read The Giver.  And it was so beautiful and impactful, I would say, because I had no idea what I was picking up, allowing for simply discovering everything on my own. 


Please read them.  And I hope to impress upon you not to read the previews or book jackets first.  They are short and simply read, but truly wonderful.

The Giver is one of my most favorite books ever. I have also read the other two and enjoyed them as well. Beautiful stuff. :) Have you read The Hunger Games? Also a dystopian society book series that can be very dark but is very powerful.

Yay! You and I really do have such similar loves in literature. I love that we do. ^.^ I received the first book of "The Hunger Games" for Christmas, but haven't actually read it yet. I hear they are really amazing. I also have some other Lois Lowry books waiting for me: "Gossamer" and "The Silent Boy". Have you read either of those?
