Book 4: The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls [link]

I've been meaning to read this book for a while, ever since it became popular a couple years back. Before checking it out from the library I actually had no idea what the plot was, just that everyone was raving about it, and now having read it, I can see why. This book was hard to put down, really sucked me into the story, and made me reflect upon my own life and how different my childhood was from the author's.

From Amazon: "In The Glass Castle, Walls chronicles her upbringing at the hands of eccentric, nomadic parents."

Up Next: Have a couple books checked out from the library, not sure which I'll begin next!
