Winterfolk by Janel Kolby has an interesting concept. I don’t think that I have ever read a book that had a homeless person as the main character. The synopsis is not overly descriptive, however, the concept of having to adjust one’s way of life and experiencing the world differently really intrigues me. Looking forward to reading this debut next year!

Book Quotes: Winterfolk by Janel Kolby
Sometimes I’m a ghost. But this morning’s air is heavy with the scent of our bodies, me and Dad’s. Our unwashed laundry. Our rock dreams.
