NATURE IS BEAUTIFUL… BUT ALSO DYING
NAME A BOOK THAT IS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, BUT ALSO DEALS WITH A HEAVY TOPIC LIKE LOSS OR GRIEF.
I Kill Giants (I Kill Giants #1-7) by Joe Kelly, J.M. Ken Niimura (Artist)
This is a gorgeous graphic novel. You have no idea the depth of the story till you get to the last page and realize what everything means. It is beautiful and heart breaking, it encapsulates what it means to be a child thrust into the pains of life.

FALL IS BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON
SHARE A NON-FICTION BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW.
Design With Nature by Ian L. McHarg
A long time ago I worked as a landscape architect. One of the books that stuck with me during design school was Ian L. Mcharg’s Design With Nature. One of the lessons taught to us is a connection and understanding of the land. Landscape Architecture is not to crush and own nature through your design, but to work with natural processes and systems to make a harmonious relationship that will last between your design and natural systems. There is a reason this book is a classic.

So there we go. Thank you to Lashaan @ Bookidote for the lovely tag. Way fun! I am opening this up to anyone who wants to give this a go.
Fun! I think HP will probably stay right there in that same spot on my post too. Ha ha!
I definitely need to check out I Kill Giants. There was a not too successful movie adaptation of it that was released recently right? I’ll have to get my hands on it. Loved your answers! Thanks for doing this tag, Beth! 😀
The movie was crap, but isn’t how most adaptations are? I think you will dig it.
