Review: Switch -a- Wish by M.B. Earnheardt

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Switch -a- Wish examines the complexity of a stressed relationship through the eyes of partners who are required to live as each other. This unique perspective allows Chris and Amanda a chance to find their way back to the feelings of the love they once shared.

I found this book to be interesting. The author did a great job with the way she wrote it.

I also found this book to be funny. I thought it was a great comparison to the movie Freaky Friday. Where in the movie Freaky Friday the mother and daughter switch lives.

I also thought this book did a great job of pointing out the responsibilities of the roles a husband and wife have in a marriage. It dealt with real life situations. We know that switching bodies can't happen in reality but I found this book to be an eye opener. I would recommend  this book. Looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Review: The Boy with Words by C.E. Wilson

Here is the summary of what the book is about.Two Books in One Volume! (Five Seven Five & Five Seven Six).

White Frost has only ever known the darkness. Everything outside of her closed society is  The Unknown - a strange and dangerous place accessible to only a chosen few.

White's only glimpse of the world beyond comes from her beloved cousin in the form of mysterious collections of words that hint at astonishing wonders. When an accident upends her simple  existence, she's given  an unlikely chance to see the truth for herself.

What she finds is greater and more terrible than she could have imagined, and before long she is forced to make the most important choice of her life: does she accept her safe, limited world that she's known or take a desperate gamble in a world not meant for her with the Boy with Words?

What can I say about this book? I found this book to be intriguing and a little bit strange. I can't imagine going through life in darkness and being lied to all my life the way White Frost did.

This book has some twists and turns and some surprises in it. I thought the author did a great job writing this book. What an imagination she has? I would recommend this book.
