Blog Tour Review: The Girl Who Chased The Moon

Thanks to Cori and her blog tour of The Girl Who Chased the Moon, I had the opportunity to check out this ARC over the weekend and was blown away! I'll be mailing it off to the next lucky reader tomorrow, and I recommend reading it as soon as you get your hands on it! From the beginning it brought to mind the movie Big Fish. I didn't think I'd get into the magical realism thing, but it sucked me in the same way Big Fish (one of the rare movies I preferred to the book) drew me in. It's the story of a young girl who moves to live with her grandfather (who happens to be 8 ft tall) in a house where the wallpaper changes according to your moods. Her nextdoor neighbor is a baker, who bakes cakes in hope that their scent will bring home love. It was a light, easy read that left me happy and wanting more of the characters. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes chick lit, southern lit, women's lit, or magical realism.
