Marais has done it again!! I have been waiting anxiously to see what she would follow her impressive debut novel up with, and thanks to #NetGalley, I have gotten an early view of this AMAZING second novel! The book opens in South Africa, just before Mandela is elected as president. The book covers three women‘s lives, two estranged sisters, Ruth and Delilah, and Zodwa. Their lives become intertwined in this emotional and engaging story! #BestBooks

mrozzz Can't wait for this one!! 2mo
TorieStorieS @mrozzz I‘m sure you will love it as much as I did!!! 2mo

BooknerdsLife @Jee_HookedOnBookz Thank you Jee😘 Oh I hope you‘ll pick it up soon. It totally took me by surprise of how interesting and beautiful this book is.

Day 5: Underrated Book

I don't understand how this book doesn't get more love than it does. Deep down, this book is like Scream but in book form. An gift to horror fans, this book contains nods to Rebecca, the Shining, and other fantastic horror novels and movies. If you love horror, please check this out. #ReadingResolutions #PhotoChallenge #UnderratedBook #Security #horror #bestbooks

Tropic of Capricorn | Henry Miller

"I believe that today, more than ever, a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.
Henry Miller, Tropic of Capricorn

Only 200 pages in, and this book is soooo good! I‘ve loved all of Dan Brown‘s books, but this might be the most captivating one of them all! #origin #danbrown #bestbooks
