October 23rd – 29th – Halloween Edition:
Name one book you’ve read in the past that still haunts you today.

When I think of a book that ‘haunts me’, I feel it’s one that I can’t stop thinking about. I think the most profound book I’ve read is Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman. This was a library book club selection earlier this summer and I’m so glad we chose this and read it. I loved this one so much that, when I had to return my library copy of it, I purchased one. I’m not usually one to reread books, but I know I will reread this one. CeeCee Honeycutt is an amazing little girl who has to endure a lot. It is a pleasure to read her story – even with some tears along the way. I highly recommend this one if you haven’t read it. It is probably my favorite book that I’ve ever read. I feel like I took a lot of the story to heart and even learned from it.

What about you? What book have you read that still haunts you? Let me know in the comments or share a link to your post.
