WHAT I READ LAST

GOODREADS

This is the third book by King that I have read and it was even better than the first two.  There was a bit of magical realism mixed in with some serious realism.  The story follows five teen agers and their very difficult lives and we discover the root (see the book cover for the pun) of all of their problems.  This book addresses poverty, racism, and family.  I highly recommend this thought provoking and pulls at your heart strings book.

Poe has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even—and especially—when you think all is lost.

Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago’s journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

These docu-series on Netflix are awesome.  I loved the 1980s one the most.  They cover all kinds of categories like, tv, music, technology, and world events.  Each episode is short which is nice too.

The Peachey family is in crisis. No one cooks dinner, no one picks up the dirty washing and the kids are always late for school. All because Mum has resigned from being Mum and taken up yoga instead. She’s in the tree pose; everyone else is in the doghouse. Except McTavish, a rescue dog with a difference, on a mission to sort his new family out…Filled to the brim with Meg’s wry humor and beautiful prose, this is a story for the young and the young at heart.

So I am switching things up a bit this week.  I know not everyone is a dog lover and since this blog feature is to feature animals, I decided to feature my favorite cat books.

Screen Shot 2019-04-24 at 8.19.16 AM.png

My Thoughts

This was so much more than a book about a guy rescuing a cat.  It was more about the cat rescuing a guy.  James was a recovering heroin addict and trying to make it by playing music in the tube stations of London.  James only had to think about himself until Bob came into the picture.  That is the wonderful thing about animals and pets, they rely on you and give you purpose.  James discovered this over and over. What happens in James’ life after meeting Bob is just short of miraculous. 

Goodreads Blurb

When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet.

Yet James couldn’t resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.

Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other’s troubled pasts.

There are a couple more books on Bob and even a series of children’s books.

I think this book is considered magical realism combined with historical fiction and for some crazy reason, it worked.  This story really has it all, love, sacrifice, death, adventure, hope, and even a mythical creature created from the earth.  Interwoven brilliantly, the story follows three Jewish women trying to survive during WWII. It is told honestly, lyrically, and beautifully and will make you question what it means to have a soul.  Some of the most breathtaking scenes involve a golem and a heron. If that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will.

GOODREADS

I TRIED SO HARD TO FINISH THIS BOOK. SO VERY, VERY, VERY, HARD! But after 200 pages I finally had to give up.  HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good book. It just means that it wasn’t a good book for me. I am not much of a fantasy reader.  There were tons of characters and setting and plots and I just didn’t have the patience to follow it. Also, the story moved too slow for me. I loved the parts about the dragons and the characters training to be dragon riders. I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s writing style and descriptions and the world she created.  If you enjoy reading the Game of Thrones series and the Lord of the Rings series and any other type of epic fantasy stories, then I truly believe you will love this book.

THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN TUESDAY TOPIC IS…

First Ten Books I Reviewed

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)

This book was very suspenseful and I look forward to reading the other two books in this trilogy.

salt

 I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO THOSE THAT ENJOY HISTORICAL FICTION AND STORIES FROM WWII.

everywhere

I HAD HIGH HOPES FOR THIS BOOK BECAUSE THE DESCRIPTION REALLY INTRIGUED ME (SEE BELOW). BEING ABLE TO USE A MAP TO GO TO ANY TIME PERIOD SOUNDED LIKE A STORY THAT WOULD HAVE LOTS OF DIFFERENT ADVENTURES IN DIFFERENT PLACES. INSTEAD THERE WAS VERY LITTLE TRAVELING  AND A LOT OF CONFUSING PLOTS AND CHARACTERS.

every

I HIGHLY recommend this book not only for older teens but for parents of teens.  Parents, myself included, put a lot of pressure on these kids and we don’t always know what is going on in their heads.  Matthew Quick does an excellent job telling us through Nanette’s story.

serpent

  I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR TEENS (AND ADULTS) WHO FEEL TRAPPED AND DEPRESSED OF WHAT THEIR FUTURE MAY HOLD.  THE SERPENT KING WILL SHOW YOU THAT IT IS OKAY TO GO AFTER YOUR DREAMS.

wolfbywolf

The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s Ball in Tokyo.

tellthewolves

This book interested me because I was the same age (14) as the main character was during the time period of this book so the 80’s references were fun to read. The main character, June, loses her uncle to a mysterious and “taboo” disease, AIDS.

alex

 THE MAIN CHARACTER, ALEX, HAS HAD 57 DIFFERENT LIVES AND CAN TRAVEL BACK TO ANY OF THEM AT ANY TIME. THIS BOOK WAS FAST PACED AND KEPT ME ENGAGED.

oneparissummer

THE BOOK HAD YOUR TYPICAL TEEN DRAMA, BOYFRIEND PROBLEMS, PARENT PROBLEMS, ETC. BUT THE AUTHOR DID A GREAT JOB OF NOT MAKING IT CLICHE.

gooddog.jpg

THIS WAS A GREAT BOOK ABOUT HOW CHALLENGING IT CAN BE TO RESCUE A DOG WITH A BAD PAST BUT NOT TO GIVE UP ON EACH OTHER.

Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.

But this Halloween is different—Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.

This is the book that I believe changed how I viewed dogs.  I had a dog and loved dogs, but did not realize how amazing dogs can be until I read this story.  When I heard the term, service dog, I thought of a seeing eye dog. And to be honest that was the only type of dog I had ever seen.  After reading this book, I was opened up to a whole new world of service dogs that did more than assisted the blind.  There were military dogs, cadaver dogs, and emotional support dogs.  I learned that there were dogs that can alert a diabetic to a low blood sugar concern before the person even knows about it.  The dog in this true story, Tuesday, helps his owner with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).  Since reading this book, I have learned that there are many veterans in need of these types of dogs.  If you love dogs but are always afraid to read a book about dogs because you think it will be sad, then be rest assured that this book is a happy book 🙂

GOODREADS

A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalván never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover.

Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being–until Luis.

Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how, together, they healed each other’s souls.
