On My Shelf: The House on Mango Street

Currently, I am readingĀ The House on Mango StreetĀ because my future college roommate told me to. If you haven’t read it, I highly suggest that you do because it’s not your typical novel. Sandra Cisneros takes us on this literary journey not through a typical chapter by chapter layout, but through little stories with quippy titles. It travels in a linear fashion so everything that happens in these little quippy stories is in chronological order – it reads like your traditional novel, but it’s not. It’s on my shelf; I’m reading it. How about you put it on yours?
