I can’t get over how deeply romantic the story of Mattie is in A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly. For some reason the way the chapters are broken up into words that Mattie uses in the chapter and the way Mattie strives for something more moves me. Maybe it’s because I’m obsessed with words and quotations and phrases, maybe that’s why I copy excerpts from my favorite books just to read over and over again. Does anyone else have this issue?
By the way, my favorite word in the English language is passion. There’s just something about it that rocks me.
