Recom-Monday-tions: The Lovely Bones by Alice Seabold.

This is a book I actually read quite a few years ago. Honestly I was drawn to this book for the strangest reason. The main characters name is very similar to my own. I know it’s an odd reason to want to read a book, but I ended up loving it. Now this book is quite dark and deals with some nasty subject matter. Suzie is raped and murdered on her way home from school one day, and her body is never found. This book is the story of her in the afterlife watching her family recover from her disappearance, and also try to solve the mystery of what happened to her. I know that this book definitely isn’t for everyone. I have friends who love it and friends who hate it (and naturally I made all my friends read it), but it is a beautiful book, despite the obvious ugliness. I really think this book will end up a classic. I would highly recommend it. You can find it here:¬†Goodreads. Amazon. The Book Depository. …
