Prompt #3: Two books that remind you of someone
The books I chose for this prompt were both recommended to me by some of my favorite teachers. The first one comes from my middle school English teacher, Mrs. Macon. She introduced me to so much literature during that time period.
Sharon Draper is one of the authors that stuck out the most to me. Though I could list off a number of her books, the one I want to focus on is Tears of a Tiger.
I remember being in 7th grade, reading the book as a class, going through each chapter. I would often try to read ahead because I couldn’t wait to hear what happened next. I got so excited when it was my turn to read a chapter, it’s an experience that I still cherish.
For this next one, I actually have some pictures I posted on my Bookstagram. After writing the caption, I realized I had to include it in this week’s post.
Room by Emma Donohughe was recommended to me by my Early Childhood Education teacher in high school. She suggested I read it after we finished A Boy Called It as a class. We were learning about child abuse and neglect at the time. I’m happy I read Room, I actually recently reviewed the movie.
