Blogspiration is a new weekly meme hosted by GrowingUpYA and Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers and writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation or just a little SOMETHING.
We've decided to spice things up a bit for this week's Blogspiration post and we're asking all you lovely readers...
What Book Inspires You??
If you've read my blog you'll know that I have deep (oh, I mean deep) admiration and respect for Melina Marchetta.
Sooo, the book that I chose was The Piper's Son. There's just something about this novel that I haven't been able to let go of or part with. It's the only book I have ever read that left me feeling completely vulnerable and incredibly emotional. And as someone who rarely cries or gets emotional, the fact that someone's writing was able to get that out of me is some pretty powerful stuff!
As a writer, I am constantly in awe of Marchetta's brilliant storytelling and seemingly effortless delivery. When it comes to her writing I am compelled, I am overjoyed, but most importantly I am inspired.
I am also in author-love with her...and I really, really, really want to be her friend!
