I devour the written word. I work with the written word. I love books or anything written. I worry for those who don't. This blog is devoted to my love of books. It will, upon occasion, include coffee references. As in my mind, coffee is inseparable from books.
Read the Printed Word!

Alissa has read 24 books toward her goal of 150 books.

I won’t lie, I spent a lot of time judging ‘Anna and the French Kiss’ because of the title.

But oh my god I’m so glad I read it!! I really enjoyed it and am so looking forward to ‘Lola and the Boy Next Door’ tomorrow.

I’m feeling like I won’t go to sleep until I finish this book.

There are lots of feels going on.

It’s true what they say about white sneakers. Only American tourists wear them, big ugly things made for mowing grass or painting houses.

I was wondering if you or a follower might be able to help me. I’ve been looking for a book that I read back in Middle School that I can’t remember the title or the author of. (Vaguely I recall the title having one of those Ice and Fire sort of motifs.)

My memory tells me the book was some sort of dystopian fantasy setting where there’s the lower class and the upper class and the world revolves around coal (With some sort of religion with holidays associated with it) so the lower class population is forced to mine for the coal which is becoming scarce and difficult to find. Now ever generation in this book had a person of upper class who was able to sense where this coal was through some sort of magical vibrations they felt. The plot is driven by the fact that the hero of the Novel is a girl of lower class who is able to sense the coal. Naturally, the officials of this world are not ready to believe her and she must go through these trials to prove that she is this person. 

If it helps, I remember the novel began with her laying down in one of the mines and simply enjoying the feeling of the vibrations the coal emitted towards her. 

Do you think you or a follower might know what book I’m talking about or might be able to point me in a direction to find it?

I’ve got no clue! I’m sorry!! Can someone else help?
