I watched this movie based on the book on my local public tv station. I have never heard of the book but the synopsis seemed interesting and duh, Benedict Cumberbatch!!! I found the movie a bit strange and confusing which makes me want to read the book because I have a feeling that there were scenes that just didn’t transfer well from page to screen.
Leigh Chen Sanders is absolutely certain about one thing: When her mother died by suicide, she turned into a bird.
Leigh, who is half Asian and half white, travels to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time. There, she is determined to find her mother, the bird. In her search, she winds up chasing after ghosts, uncovering family secrets, and forging a new relationship with her grandparents.
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 was so bummed this book was a flop. I so wanted to like it! It was slow and boring and the writing style was strange. The main character was so flat that I just didn’t care if she found her husband or not. The only good thing about the book was the parts of the story that took place in Paris and the descriptions of the city and its sights.
This book was so adorable and sweet. It tells the story of Livy who is 12 and hasn’t been to her Grandma’s house since she was five. When she arrives, Livy starts remembering things from when she was there last time. One of those things lives in her closet, a non-zombie chicken boy named, Bob. He has been waiting there for her the whole time. Livy wants to help Bob find out where he is from and help him to find his home. An incredibly written book on friendship and family with a bit of magic mixed in.

Got these two from First to Read
Told in parallel narratives, this twisty, shocking story shows how one bad choice can lead to a spiral of unforeseen consequences where not everyone will survive.
With beautiful prose and characters that are so real they jump off the page, Tin Man is a love letter to human kindness and friendship, and to loss and living.
