The Day The Angels Fell by Shawn Smucker

This book was both beautiful and adventurous. I loved how he switched between the point of view of the boy and the old man. It’s perfect for adults and kids alike with moments to be enjoyed by both. It tugs at the heartstrings while also encouraging the reader to use their imagination like never before. I gave it 4.5 stars and am a big fan of Smucker’s writing.



Calling My Name, by Liara Tamani

This was simply a beautiful book full of cute, funny, and embarrassing life experiences. I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and read something that expanded my horizons. Tamani delicately paints her pages with the English language and explores everything from family to first loves. I’m not a huge fan of the short chapters, but that’s fairly petty of me. Overall, I gave it four stars because I would have liked to read more of this book, and I felt like it wrapped up too quickly.
