Donut Days by Lara Zielin

donutdaysI read a great YA book yesterday, Donut Days by Lara Zielin.

It was one of those stories that I sat down to read, and didn’t get up until it was finished. I love those sorts of books!

I’m not usually one to jump on a book with a religious undertone, but there was something about this story that made me smile-so I decided to give it a read and I’m glad I did.

I think the thing I liked the most was the voice. Readers and writers talk so much about voice, because it’s just that important. So many time I’ve read a book with a great plot that fell short because I didn’t think the voice was authentic enough, but not this book. The voice really stood out for me.

I loved the main character and loved watching her own personal growth through the story. I highly suggest grabbing this book and giving it a read.

Speaking of just grabbing this book… that was one of my favorite parts- this book is already available on the Kindle! I wish all books came out immediatly on the Kindle. I would be like a gazillion times more likely to purchase them.

(Oh, and hey Amazon–if you’re listening- I would totally pay hardcover price for this earth saving convenience.)

If I haven’t already convinced you to buy this book, then check out the Author’s editing letter video here. She’s just as cute as the book!

That video is adorable! Voice is very important, yes... but you didn't say what the book is about... what's it about?

Ahhh I did that on purpose... I HATE when people give me the book plot first!

It's about a high school girl finding herself... :)
