Book: Other Words for Home


Such a beautiful cover, too!
One my favorite books this year is Other Words for Home, by Jasmine Warga. It's a beautiful, touching, wonderful, uplifting, poetic book. I love it so very much--if I could I'd buy a bunch of copies and give them to every school library and every little free library in my town. Other Words for Home is practically perfect in every way. I highly recommend it and it'll definitely be in my upcoming list of my favorite books of 2019! I'll leave you with two of my favorite quotes from the book:


“There is an Arabic proverb that says:

She makes you feel
like a loaf of freshly baked bread.



It is said about
the nicest
kindest
people.
The type of people
who help you
rise.”



“Mama says the word cake like it's just an ordinary food

which is strange since everyone knows that cakes are
made of magic.”

Happy reading!


Overall: ★★★★★ (5/5)
Comfort: 🍵🍵🍵🍵 (4/5)
Romance: ❤❤ 
(2/5 for friendship and marriage depictions)
