the ones i've loved

on books:

well-written: the writer has carefully chosen and placed each and every word; and the way these words are put together creates a certain rhythm and tone unique to the story.

a complex main character: one with a rich, layered interior life; whose thoughts and observations i think about months, and years later; and who by the story's end has had to make some decision critical to her transformation.

i am thinking we are drawn to that which we hope to create.
