So Read Me Maybe October 26, 2012

I love novels in verse! If you haven’t read one yet, you must! Novels in verse are stories written through poems. When you crack open a novel in verse, it looks like there aren’t many words to read. (which is great if you don’t want to spend weeks reading the same book or if you are forced to read a book and don’t really want to) There is a whole entire story packed into those poems. The authors give you just enough information and description to figure out what’s going on in the story and to fall right in.

My favorite novel in verse is Exposed by Kimberly Marcus. In Exposed, sixteen year old Liz loves photography. Something unexpected happens to her BFF Kate. All of a sudden life isn’t picture perfect for Liz and she is forced to look at things and people close to her differently.Novels in verse are addictive. Once you read one, you may want to read them all!
