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.
Saturday Situation is put on by Pure Imagination. It is were we review our latest reads. Be sure to check out theirs as well.
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!
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.
Stacking the Shelves is put on by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves. Here are the books I have added to my TBR list this week.
I have never listened to the Harry Potter books so I decided to start listening to them on CD on my commute to work. I checked this audio book out from my local library.
The Book Blogger Hop is put on by The Coffee Addicted Writer . There is a weekly prompt featuring a book related question.
THIS WEEK’S QUESTION IS SUBMITTED BY Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books.
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?
No, however, I really wanted to when J.K. Rowling killed off Dobby and Hedwig in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
