All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and This Changes Everything by Naomi Klein

2. Was it a good one?

Yes, they were both very good books.

3. What made it good?
All the Light We Cannot See – I loved how it was a historical fiction that took place during WWII and how the main character was blind, I also loved the relationship between Marie Laure and her father.

This Changes Everything – I liked it because I actually learned a lot about the world around me, and the potential consequences of climate change and the initial roots that have caused it.
