    One thought on “The Girl Who Swallowed the Moon”

    1. This was astonishing! I have no idea why more people do not know about this book :( That makes me extremely sad! So many people are missing out on something that is wonderful. I am not as good as other reviewer's, I wish one of them would review this so the responsibility does not fall on me. Well, Read this if you carry a pain, read this if you are happy, read this if you are sad, read this if you are alone, read this if you are in love. Read this if you are soul searching and want to think de [...]

    2. I really liked it! It reminded me of A Wrinkle in Time, which says a lot. There is so much in here beyond a children's book. It explores the power and magic of love, the magic and love an adoptive family, and so much more!

    3. This actually wasn't my favorite Newbery Award. I read it for book club and thought I would really like it. I'm a huge fan of fantasy (it's my comfort genre), but this wasn't my thing. I liked many of the ideas in the novel and I enjoyed the prose. I also found the characters interesting and engaging. However, I felt like the book was TRYING too hard if that even makes sense. The writing and story were not effortless to me, and it came off as awkward. It was an easy read and enjoyable! Just not [...]

    4. This started out feeling like The Hunger Games--with a sacrifice each year from the villages. Fortunately, it moved out of that territory. The writing is amazing, and there are so many poetic phrases. I'm not big on fantasy, but this was fun.

    5. This is a wonderful book about the power of both sadness and love. Some readers may have difficulty with the number of points of view. The storyteller in particular requires a discerning reader.

    6. I read this book in high school. I loved it. Since, I have read it numerous times. It is one of my favorite books.
