I downloaded this book for free from Amazon for International Book Day because the setting of the Cuban revolution interested me. I‘m not sure if it is the original writing or the translation, but the writing felt really flat to me. It also irritated me greatly that the narration switched from first person Carmela to first person Ignacio to third person. It was confusing and didn‘t add anything to the story.

Douglass tries everything he can think of to save his ailing marriage. When his wife tells him she‘s thinking of leaving him, he decides they should go through with the Grand Tour of Europe they had planned with their 17 year old son. Many memorable moments ensue, some funny and some bittersweet. I enjoyed this book, and I think anyone in a long term relationship could find a lot to relate to.

Five Feet Apart (Media Tie-In) | Rachael Lippincott

Pickpick

As a nurse, I had to suspend some of my disbelief regarding how these characters behaved in the hospital.I can tell you now, there‘s no way you can just run around and visit the NICU.Aside from that, I found the story quite touching. Compared to “The Fault in Our Stars,” which has some similarities, I felt like these teens were much more realistic in the way they talked and the decisions they made.The ending even made me tear up a little.

Lovely War | Julie Berry

It was supposed to be the war to end all wars, but unfortunately that was not the case.It felt very fitting to finish this book on Memorial Day weekend.This book drew me in with a very creative setup by having a WW1 historical romance delivered by Greek gods.I also appreciated the author‘s notes at the end detailing her research. Although the main characters were fictional, she uses actual people from the time as some of the supporting characters.

Born a Crime | Trevor Noah

I recognized Treavor Noah as the host of The Daily Show, but I didn‘t know anything else about him when I picked up this book. It was really illuminating for me to hear about his childhood growing up during apartheid in South Africa. At times, his story made me laugh out loud. In the end though, it was his amazing story of his relationship with his mother that made me love this book. I‘d recommend this book to anyone.

Maybe I‘m sensitive today, but I just can‘t do this anymore. After the gratuitous violence turned into killing animals, I‘ve had enough. I wanted to try something outside of my normal comfort zone, but this is not it.

I had to put aside my work and finish this today. I was not really prepared to start crying at my desk,but it was so sad! I got lucky and never happened to have seen the movie version, so nothing was spoiled for me. I‘m definitely interested in seeing the movie now though. This was an absolutely beautiful story, probably my favorite Stephen King novel I‘ve read so far.

InBooksILive The movie makes me cry every time I watch it! I need to read the book still though. I'll make sure to have tissues on hand when I do 3mo

This chunkster of a cookbook is great for someone who is looking for evidence based recipes. Ever wondered if you should salt your steaks before grilling? J. Kenji Lopez-Alt has tried 5 different ways of doing it and provides graphs to show you the results. Oddly enough, he also writes like he thinks he should be some sort of stand-up comedian, taking cracks at his wife and mother in a strangely off-putting way. Skip the text if you can.

I usually read before I go to bed at night. While I was reading this book, it felt like I was having a chat at the end of the day with a friend. There is a genuineness that shines from the pages of this book. “You matter” is a message that I don‘t think we can hear enough times. I‘m going to share this book with my mom and sister. Because they matter, and they need to hear it again too.

Djspens I love this book! I'd like to listen to the audiobook just to hear it in Michelle's voice! 3mo

My favorite teacher would have to be Mr. Baudhuin, who was my freshman world history teacher. He was so creative in his lessons, and I remember so many of them. The most profound was probably The Silent Lesson, where he taught us about the Holocaust. No one spoke for the entire hour, and each student had a picture under our chair that we had to walk up and place on an overhead projector. He really made an impact on me. #PalindromeGiveaway

I was really excited by the setting, but ultimately had some issues with the writing. At times, I‘d read a sentence and have no idea what it meant. The words were beautiful, but it was just a jumble of metaphors. Also, while I was grateful for the epilogue because it tied up a lot of loose plot points, I thought it was kind of a cop out to just slap an epilogue on at the end instead of working it into the actual story

KateFulfordAuthor Thanks for the great review! And generally agree with you about epilogues too. 4mo
