Thoughts On GOLDEN



Hey there! As some of you know, I'm a contributor to the recently launched YA Buccaneers blog. Well, today I posted some thoughts on life and Jessi Kirby's wonderful novel, Golden. You should sail by and check it out! Here's the link: Thoughts On Life and GOLDEN.

{You should just swing by sometime anyway. There are lots of great things going on including (but not limited to) organized Word Sprints and the Reading Mutiny challenge that includes a giveaway for reading and posting reviews of YA books based on this month's theme: ADVENTURE. Check it out! ☺}

    1. Thanks! It was one of the sillier options for my profile pic for YA Buccaneers. Needless to say, it was not my first choice. Neither were the ones with big bushy beards. ;-)

  3. For some reason, I can't comment via Disqus on the Buccaneers site. So I'll post my comment here! :)
    Wow, this book sounds incredible. (And Mary Oliver is one of my favorite poets--I love that her beautiful line in part inspired this story.)

    1. Other people have mentioned problems with Disqus on the site, so we'll have to see what the problem is. Thanks for mentioning it!

      As for GOLDEN, it's definitely one of my favourite reads of 2013 so far. It just really spoke to me on a personal level. I'm not familiar with Mary Oliver apart from this poem, but I'm thinking I should look into her other stuff. :)
