Euphoria by Lily King, which was my favorite book of 2014. I cannot get this book out of my head. It's both literary and accessible to pop fiction readers. Euphoria perfectly illustrates why I love to read: it transports the reader to another part of the word to learn about other cultures. It's a window into a world I will probably never visit and experience firsthand. I learned from it, both intellectually and emotionally. But there's also romance. There's adventure. Its lessons are so beautifully linked with the plot. That it's inspired by the life of Margaret Mead adds to its power, as parts of it are true. It's a book I find myself recommending to so many people.
This year, while I snuggle Hawthorne and tell him he's my valentine, I'm also thinking of Euphoria, my book valentine that reminds me why I love to read.
Now tell me: what's your book valentine this year?
Happy Valentine's Day!
