Stuffed Animal Saturday [4]

Stuffed Animal Saturday is a meme that we post here at We Live and Breathe Books every two weeks to showcase the book we're currently reading with one of our favorite stuffed animals and discuss our stuffed animal's opinion (well, it's really our opinion, but that's besides the point). We hope you enjoy our quirky feature as much as we enjoy writing it!

Hi guys! So I know it's been absolutely forever since I lasted posted (senior year is jam packed) but I wanted to share this with you. I have lots of stuffed animals but Coconut has got to be my favorite. This little guy has been with me since kindergarten, and I can't bear to think of my backpack or purse without him. Since he's been around for so long, he knows a lot about my tastes in literature, and frankly, he agrees with all of them.

So Far: When I began reading Silent Harmony by Michelle Scott, I expected a charming book about horses, and so did Coconut. This book is so far less about horses and much more about rich kids being snobby. Vivienne, our main narrator is completely lovely, and tells most of the story with a distinct voice, which the other (ehm) sub-narrators lacked. Coconut is finding the story as lacking cohesiveness so far, and I have to agree him. The book fluctuates between being about teen romance, to horses whose minds can be read, to murder. Like, what. Coconut wants everyone to slow down and chill and realize what's going on, and so do I.

A Sneak Peek: 
"I've seen angry eyes, kind eyes, eyes filled with fear or poison, but vacant is all new to me."
One thing Coconut and I can agree upon? Our eyes were never vacant when reading this book, and we can't wait to finish it.
