Don’t you just love it when your book club decides to read something that you have wanted to read for a while, but you haven’t managed to get around to reading it yet? I am so excited that I am being “forced” to read Revolution, by Jennifer Donnelly. I have heard so much about this book when many book bloggers received advanced copies at the end of the spring at BookExpoAmerica.
Now, I haven’t fully read any reviews because I knew that this was one that I wanted to read sooner rather than later, and I know that usually here I will tell a little bit about the book and share some of what I have heard. This time, I am not going to do that. I really want to go into this one with the little info that I have, so that I can really, really experience the story for myself. All I know is that it is a historical fiction, YA novel that follows the dual narratives of two characters, one of whom lives in the present day and it’s supposed to be really, really good. I’m going to go with that.
As an aside I also bought a copy of The Winter Rose by the same author. It’s part of a highly recommended historical fiction trilogy and I probably know less about it than I do Revolution. I just realized that this one is not the first book, so I guess I have to go and buy the first now.
