Book Blurb

Jess and her ten-year-old son William set off to spend the summer at Château de Roussignol, deep in the rich, sunlit hills of the Dordogne. There, Jess’s ex-boyfriend—and William’s father—Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle. Lush gardens, a gorgeous pool, delectable French food, and a seemingly never-ending wine list—what’s not to like? Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she’s in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam fall in love with his own son.
But Adam has other ideas, and another girlfriend—and he doesn’t seem inclined to change the habits of a lifetime just because Jess and William have appeared on the scene.

nightingale

Book Blurb

FRANCE, 1939
In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France…but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When France is overrun, Vianne is forced to take an enemy into her house, and suddenly her every move is watched; her life and her child’s life is at constant risk. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates around her, she must make one terrible choice after another.

FIVE STARS!

I absolutely loved this book. It is about three friends who met at fat camp as young girls.  Twenty years later, one of them dies and leaves a note in her will for her friends.  It is a list of things to do, even though they are still overweight.  I loved the message in this book which is basically, live your life to the fullest no matter what your dress size.  Don’t wait for the “perfect weight” to do the things you want to do in life.  There were many laugh out loud moments with heart felt and gut wrenching moments too.  An excellent well written read!

everynote

This book made me cry! Richard, a famous pianist, is diagnosed with ALS.  I wasn’t familiar with exactly how this terrible disease attacks the body but the author does an excellent job describing it through Richard’s story.  I love piano music and even took lessons for 11 years.  Throughout the story, Richard named some of the music he would play by Schumann, Back, Mozart, etc. so I would look them up on iTunes and listen to small snippets  of the songs while I read.  It really immersed me into the story.  This was a quick read and I would have liked more but overall a great read.

This weeks prompt is…

Have you ever thought of writing a respectful, but angry letter to an author to ask them WHY they killed off one of your favorite characters in a novel?

My answer…

No, however, I really wanted to when J.K. Rowling killed off Dobby and Hedwig in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Book Blurb

How do you deal with a hole in your life?

Do you grieve?

Do you drink?

Do you make out with your best friend?

Do you turn to poets and pop songs?

Do you question everything?

Do you lash out?

Do you turn the lashing inward?

If you’re Avery, you do all of these things. And you write it all down in an attempt to understand what’s happened — and is happening — to you.

I Felt a Funeral, In My Brain is an astonishing novel about navigating death and navigating life, at a time when the only map you have is the one you can draw for yourself.

This YA book publishes May 29th, 2018

Book Blurb

An accomplished concert pianist, Richard received standing ovations from audiences all over the world in awe of his rare combination of emotional resonance and flawless technique. Every finger of his hands was a finely calibrated instrument, dancing across the keys and striking each note with exacting precision. That was eight months ago.

Richard now has ALS, and his entire right arm is paralyzed. His fingers are impotent, still, devoid of possibility. The loss of his hand feels like a death, a loss of true love, a divorce—his divorce.

He knows his left arm will go next.

Three years ago, Karina removed their framed wedding picture from the living room wall and hung a mirror there instead. But she still hasn’t moved on. Karina is paralyzed by excuses and fear, stuck in an unfulfilling life as a piano teacher, afraid to pursue the path she abandoned as a young woman, blaming Richard and their failed marriage for all of it.

When Richard becomes increasingly paralyzed and is no longer able to live on his own, Karina becomes his reluctant caretaker. As Richard’s muscles, voice, and breath fade, both he and Karina try to reconcile their past before it’s too late.

My husband, son, and I went to this movie last week. It was my son’s 19th birthday and he loves Japanese culture and we all like dogs so this was the perfect movie for us to see.  It is rated PG-13 so it is meant for adults. It was funny but definitely unlike any animated movie I have seen before.

This author spoke at the university in my town so I was excited to go and hear what he had to say about writing Science Fiction.  I had just finished reading his book, The Windup Girl, and enjoyed it very much.  He has written other books and they are all dystopian type books that take place in a world where climate change is a big factor in the book’s  plot.   Bacigalupi also read a chapter from his latest book, The Water Knife.  I think it is cool to hear an author read their own words from their books.

It seems to be a trend to have books written by numerous perspectives because I think this is my third one in a row.  This story is told by Zac, a ten year old boy who is overweight and bullied relentlessly at school.  Those parts were horrible to read because I know things like that really do go on in schools.  The story is also told by Zac’s mom, Juliet, and his grandpa, Mick.  Zac was told his dad left him and his mom before he was born so Zac and his best friend, Teagan decide to find him because Zac overheard his mom say she still loved his dad.  When Zac’s grandpa finds out about this, he is worried because he knows the real reason Zac’s dad left and it could cause a lot of heartache if the truth gets out.  I loved the relationship between Zac and his mom.  They were so supportive of each other.  When Zac decides to try and lose weight, his mom joins him at the gym.  Even though it could lead to disappointment, Juliet helps Zac in his mission to find his dad.  This was a sweet and endearing book about love and family.

My answer…

I make a list of books on my phone in order of when they need to be read and reviewed.  If I get a book from the library, I insert it into the list, usually at the top, because I will have to have it read before it is due in three weeks.

It’s been five years since Summer Marks was brutally murdered in the woods. 

Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend. That driven by their obsession with a novel called The Way into Lovelorn the three girls had imagined themselves into the magical world where their fantasies became twisted, even deadly.

The only thing is: they didn’t do it. 

On the anniversary of Summer’s death, a seemingly insignificant discovery resurrects the mystery and pulls Mia and Brynn back together once again. But as the lines begin to blur between past and present and fiction and reality, the girls must confront what really happened in the woods all those years ago—no matter how monstrous.

This publishes October 2018

Book Blurb

Ten-year-old Zac Hutchinson collects facts: octopuses have three hearts, Usain Bolt is the fastest man on earth. But no one will tell him the one thing he wants to know most: who his father is and where he went.
When Zac’s mother, Juliet, inadvertently admits that his dad is the only man she’s ever loved, Zac decides he is going to find him and deliver his mom the happily ever after she deserves.
But Liam Jones left for a reason, and as Zac searches for clues of his father, Juliet begins to rebuild what shattered on the day that was at once the happiest and most heartbreaking of her life.
Told through the eyes of Zac, Juliet, and grandfather Mick, Little Big Love is a layered, heartfelt, utterly satisfying story about family, love, and the secrets that can define who we are.

Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults.

For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it’s coming to terms with the survivor’s guilt she’s carried around since her twin sister’s death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it’s about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother’s and brother’s ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.

But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson’s dying wish becomes truly clear: more than anything, she wanted her friends to love themselves.

THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN TUESDAY TOPIC IS…

a FREEBIE so I choose…

My most valuable and/or valued books that I own.

outlander

These books in the Oulander series have the original covers with original artwork. They are from 1992 and 1997. The covers were changed a few years back when the series became super popular.

outlander2

This Outlander book is newer, paperback even, but I value it because it is signed!

I met this Holocaust survivor and chatted with her for about a half an hour.  She was promoting her book that includes her survival story through verse at the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C.  I could have talked with her all day. She was so kind and not bitter about the things that had happened to her.  Her book is wonderful and I treasure it on my shelf along with her wonderful message to me.

I grabbed this ARC at a book convention a couple years back.  This book is one of my all time favorites and fortunately I met the author at a different book convention.  We talked for a long time about the rise in self-harm in teens today.

hpotter.jpg

I was able to grab this Special Anniversary Edition at a thrift store!

I found this first printing of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets at Half-Price Books.  The first two Harry Potter books originally didn’t have the numbers on the spine.  The publishers started that with book 3. You can also tell it is a first printing because of the number line that goes 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.   I also have a first printing of book 3, which is harder to find as well.

Before J.K. Rowling was outed as Robert Galbraith, this is what the author bio in the back of the book looked like.  Now it just says Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling.  As soon as I learned that Rowling had written this book I rushed to the book store and grabbed the only copy and warned the staff that they might want to order more!

I was at my library one day and there was a cart of books for sale.  My husband grabbed one and showed it to me.  I almost had a heart attack! It was the first four books of the Game of Thrones series A Song of Ice and Fire, AND they were first printings as you can tell by the covers.  The second book was even autographed!!! It gets even better, they were only $3.00 each.

I am a big John Green fan so when I saw first printings of Paper Towns, An Abundance of Katherins, and The Fault in our Stars, I grabbed them.

I am also a huge Disney fan and like to collect old Disney items especially books.  These are from 1955 and 1956.  I think they are so cool on the inside because they show the rides in Disneyland, some of which aren’t there anymore.

I received this book for my first birthday. I remember reading this book over and over and over as a kid.  It is one of my favorite books from my childhood. It is over 40 years old!!!

I didn’t get very much reading done this week due to going to my daughter’s track meets two nights this week and binge watching The Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix.  I had been hearing a lot of great things about this show on Twitter and some of the blogs I follow.  This show is hilarious, a bit gruesome, but so funny! The dialogue between the two main characters, Sheila and Joel, is clever and brilliant. If you want a fun show about a wife who wakes up dead one day and how the family has to deal with her new diet of humans, then I highly recommend this show!

This was such a unique book full of Asian culture, tradition, and magic.  After Leigh’s mom commits suicide, she believes her mom has a come back as a large red bird to give her a message.  This leads Leigh to go to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time and try to learn what her mom is trying to tell her.  Leigh visits her mom’s favorite places in Taiwan searching for clues while still seeing the red bird flying above the city watching over her.  This was beautifully written and so heartbreaking at times, especially as some family secrets become uncovered.

An accomplished concert pianist, Richard received standing ovations from audiences all over the world in awe of his rare combination of emotional resonance and flawless technique.

Richard now has ALS, and his entire right arm is paralyzed. His fingers are impotent, still, devoid of possibility.
