The House on Mango Street
I have been meaning to read this for a long time. Usually short stories don't do much for me, especially when they don't seem to connect of have any kind of fluency. This was so not the case in this book. I loved the way these short tid-bits of stories flowed together and made it almost dream like. Everything was deliberate in this book, and I liked it. I found this book almost had some touches of Magical Realism (of which I am a huge fan) but yet somehow was able to stay grounded to reality, which I also find important. This was just beautiful.
