I haven’t mentioned this yet, but one of my overarching goals this year is to complete a 26 x 26 list. This list is compiled of 26 things I would like to achieve prior to turning 26.
One of the items is to read 26 non-school books. Easy enough right? Ehhhh….harder when in school and in a world filled with Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime.
Currently I am at 16 books. Not too shabby considering some of these books are monsters.
One of the 16 books I have read is Room by Emma Donoghue.
I could hardly put this book down.
It was just so interesting and was told from such an interesting perspective.
The story is about a mom and son duo, Ma and Jack, who live in “Room”. Room is a small space where Jack learns things from a handful of books, a TV, and Ma. However, Jack has never experienced the world. Ma and Jack’s experience in Room and after are not only profoundly interesting but heartwarming as well.
I would highly recommend this book.
