Finished The Book That Made Me, edited by Judith Ridge. I received a copy for review.
This is an anthology of stories from Australian authors, detailing the book (or books) most responsible for making them who they are as readers, authors and people.
This is the kind of book that every reader will be able to identify with. We all have books that we can point to that make us US. (Matilda is one of mine, as I’m sure thousands of others will agree.)
The stories are both incredibly familiar to me and incredibly foreign. I haven’t read many of the novels mentioned, which is awesome (I plan to hit the library!) but the authors’ feelings for them? I do know all of them.
