NEVER Run Out Of Books To Read

Have you ever thought, “What book should I read next?”

Don’t have time to scan the New Releases at the bookstore or library?

None of your books on goodreads to-read shelf look appealing?

I’ve got the solution for you:

Book Bloggers!

 

Book Bloggers?

Yes, there are blogs out there that just talk about good books.

(I’m not just talking about my own – there are so many bloggers out there!)

Nobody has enough time to go through all the books coming out now-a-days. Why don’t you let other people do that for you!

You know that friend that you always go to for that delicious recipe she made last week? Or that other friend that keeps you up to-date on the celeb gossip?

Yea, these book bloggers could be THAT friend.

You’ll always know what book to pick up next that is going to hit the spot.

They’ll for sure know what book to read next.

Book Review: The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle

Synopsis:

Title – The Glass Castle  (Goodreads)

Author – Jeannette Walls (Goodreads)

Published – January 17th 2006

Genre – Fiction, Memoir

Summary – The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family.

The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered.

The Glass Castle is truly astonishing–a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.

Title – The Divinity Bureau  (Website, Goodreads)

Author – Tessa Clare (Website, Goodreads)

Published – September 21st 2017

Summary – Roman Irvine is a disgruntled IT Technician for the Divinity Bureau, a government agency that uses random selection to decide who lives and who dies. In a world where overpopulation has lead to pollution, a crippled economy, and a world in crisis, he’s accepted the bureau’s activities as a necessity… until he meets April McIntyre.

April has every reason to be suspicious of Roman. He works for the Divinity Bureau, which sent her father to an early grave. But he’s also sweet and loyal, and unbeknownst to her, he saved her life. As Roman and April fall deeper in love, the deeper they’re thrust into the politics of deciding who lives and who dies. Someone wants April dead. And the bureau’s process of random selection may not be so random after all…
