#Collaboreads | Young Adult Novel

#Collaboreads | Young Adult Novel - A Simpler Grace



Good day, friends. I'm back again to join Rachel and Kristin in another #Collaboreads post. This month, we are talking about a young adult novel we read this month. Other than the really popular series like Divergent and The Hunger Games, I've never been a big fan of young adult fiction before, so I was hesitant to select just any book for this month's prompt. I did happen to have a YA novel on my reading list this year, and I thought it was a great opportunity to give it a shot! Keep reading to see what my thoughts were.

Simple Gratitude | 74

Today I'm sharing my #gratefulheart on the blog #gratitude #feelingthankful



"She was a genius of sadness, immersing herself in it, separating its numerous strands, appreciating its subtle nuances. She was a prism through which sadness could be divided into its infinite spectrum." - Jonathan Safran Foer

We're rolling into the hardest week of the year for my family with the anniversary of my brother's passing coming up and while I do plan to delve a little deeper into the topic in my monthly letter later this week, I want to focus on a different angle today.
