I was on Spring Break for two weeks and took a much needed break from reading and blogging.  I went to Japan to see my son who is studying over there.  Here are a few photos of my trip.  I highly recommend visiting Japan.  The food, people, and country are amazing.

For twelve-year-old Cora Landry and her friends Violet and Jordyn, it was supposed to be an ordinary sleepover–movies and Ouija and talking about boys. But when they decide to sneak out to go to the abandoned rail yard on the outskirts of town, little do they know that their innocent games will have dangerous consequences.

WHAT I READ THIS WEEK

I am so disappointed in this book.  It had so much potential. Instead, the writing was only average with cheesy one liners at the end of each chapter; none of the characters were likeable.  The main character stressed me out endlessly! She is bipolar and wouldn’t take her medicine so that she could “focus” on trying to find her boyfriend. The premise of the book was promising, a vaccine being used as bioterrorism, but it fell flat.  I felt there could have been more suspense about that part of the plot instead of looking for a killer. The “twist” at the end was predictable. I really wanted to like this one but weak writing and plot development just didn’t work for me.

From the New York Times-bestselling author comes a pulse-pounding domestic thriller about a group of friends who have been bound for twenty years by a single secret—and will now be undone by it. Someone Knows is an emotional exploration of friendship and family, as well as a psychological exploration of guilt and memory.

Henri Skinner is a hardened ex-war reporter on the run from his past. On his way to see his son, Sam, for the first time in years, Henri steps into the road without looking and collides with oncoming traffic. He is rushed to a nearby hospital where he floats, comatose, between dreams, reliving the fairytales of his childhood and the secrets that made him run away in the first place.

    I loved seeing all your pics from Japan on Facebook! 🎏

    I’m doing a year of reading classics in 2020 and I’d love to do a re-read of The Count of Monte Cristo! We could buddy read. I know it’s really long, so we could parcel it out across the whole year if you wanted to. 👍✨
    I also have not forgotten about our chick-off this year, so I’m re-challenging you for next month! 🐣

    Have a wonderful new week. 🌞
