So...it's my birthday.
Happy Birthday, Me!
I'm 24 today and since my blog is about Books and Musicals, I thought I'd start it off right by blogging about a book and end my day by going to see Les Mis with three of my hands down favorite people!!!
So I'm not going to cheat and lift a book from my blog (although go read The Magicians by Lev Grossman, now!)
I'm sure all of you are very different and therefore my recommendation will have to accommodate many varying tastes. A daunting task, indeed.
So here's a book I recently found for Shauna's husband, Tim, that I think will have something for everyone.
It's called What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower by Margaret Killjoy
The reason I think all of you will find something to like about this book is that it's a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book! For readers above the age of 7! So depending on your mood or day or personality, you'll be taken somewhere new.
I feel like you learn a lot about yourself from these kinds of books. That life doesn't always lead you down a linear path and that sometimes you have to move backward in order to move forward. That a choice you made 5 decisions ago could've been the one to save your life (or kill you). That in order to get the most fulfilling experience, you sometimes need to step a little out of your comfort zone.
And, you know, aside from all that semi-deep stuff, it's a choose-your-own-adventure-book! How fun!!!
Have a wonderful Saturday blog world! See you tomorrow!
