Myself and Amy have relatively similar tastes in books – admittedly, she is a little more into thrillers than me, but we are both partial to a contemporary YA novel. So, because I wanted to send books that I had read, I needed to think of books that were a little unusual for me.
According to Goodreads, I first shelved Revolution by Jennifer Donnely in 2014, but I have a feeling that I have owned it longer. It was bought on a complete whim from my local Waterstones and quickly became one of my favourite books. It has a solid Young Adult foundation and is predominantly about people, their lives, relationships and growing up.
Whilst undeniably a Young Adult novel this ambitious story is really an eclectic mix of many genres, most noticeably mystery and historical fiction. Maybe less obviously so than Amy’s pick for me, this seemed like a good choice of Rachael-Amy swap (and hopefully the others will to). Furthermore, I went into this book, not as unknowing as Amy, but knowing very little. As a result, our experiences of reading this book would be somewhat similar. I wanted to see how our experiences would match up.
Before sending it on its way, I wrapped it in this really charming Daschund wrapping paper:
