I wanted to try out a new post today I am calling The Book Raven Recommends to recommend you all a great book to read! 

For this first post of this I’m just going to choose The Giver by Louis Lowry simply because it is my favorite book of all time and even if it isn’t the best book for everyone I just want to see more appreciation out there in the world for it. 

This haunting story centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he’s given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. 

Also, if you haven’t watch the movie! The movie is fantastic and I loved every second of it!


I could go on and on discussing about why I love The Giver so much, but the point of this post is to have you read it and figure out what you feel about it. 

If you’ve read this book or seen the movie let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Thanks for reading. 

-Till next time!

  1. I love the Giver series! As much as I loved the first – it was the second and third one that made me fall in love even more! I remembered staying up until 5am to finish one of them…. I fell down the rabbit hole lol I hope you enjoy the rest of the series!

      1. Binge reading this series is the best way to go. The other books have completely different characters and setting so you wonder how it all comes together – it was a surprise I didn’t see coming! Gathering Blue was my favourite of the series 🙂

  2. I finally read this book in college a few years back. Most people I went to junior high and high school with had to read it for school, but I didn’t manage to get that. But I really did enjoy it. I like the themes of emotion and feeling alive. I haven’t watched the movie, but I need to see it for myself. Have you read all four books? Do they very loosely connect or can you see distinct connections to each book?
