Review: Sunday Kind of Love by Dorothy GarLock

Here is a summary of what the book is about.  Buckton, Indiana, 1956. As post-war America brims with new opportunities, a young woman  discovers the courage to follow her dreams-and her heart...

Gwendolyn Foster's life seems like a dream come true. A bright future in front of her, the successful, traditional man her parents wanted at her side. What more could a girl ask for? But Gwen has a different dream altogether-to be a writer- and she won't rest until it comes true.

Strong arms to support her, not own her... that's what she needs. And she finds them in the most unexpected of places.

Hank Ellis has long been haunted by his little brother's death. He knows the entire town blames him for the accident, but it's only fitting. He blames himself too. So he's shocked when Gwen ignores the vicious gossip and befriends him. And before long, everything changes for them.

Folks warn Gwen about Hank, but she knows in her heart that they're wrong. Drawn to this man of bravery and kindness who encourages her to pursue her passions, Gwen can finally envision the life she's always wanted. And with Gwen, Hank finds the strength to let go of his guilt, as he dares to hope for a future with her.

But braving the town that turns against them isn't the only challenge they face. For Hank still harbors a dark secret, a shocking truth that may force him to lose Gwen forever...

One day it was raining. My husband and I went to the bookstore to browse.

I came across this book. I asked my husband if I could have it he said yes. I am so glad I got it. I am not sure what drew me to this book maybe it was the cover or maybe it was the title or maybe both.

What a incredible story. I fell in love with this book. I couldn't put it down.

I would highly recommend this book. I hope you all will love it as much as I did.

There are some twists and turns in this book.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Here is a summary of what the  book is about.  Risk everything... for love. What if you couldn't touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face...or kiss the boy next door?

In Everything Everything, Maddy is a girl who's literally allergic to the outside world, and Olly is the boy who  moves in next door... and becomes the greatest risk she's ever taken.

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I'm allergic to the world. I don't leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He's tall, lean and wearing all black- black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can't predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It's almost certainly going to be a disaster.

Oh my Gosh I absolutely loved this book. I couldn't put it down.

There are some surprises in it that I didn't see coming.

I would recommend this book. I can't wait to see the movie.

I do plan on reading more books by this author.

By the way the author's husband did all of the illustrations in the book.

I thought this book was very well written.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: Pearls of Daily Life Short Stories and Poems on Self - Discovery by Antonia Loschner

Here is a summary of what the book is about. In the hurly - burly of daily life, all too often, the Self happens to get lost. However, with its overall knowledge of our needs and strengths, it would by far be the best personal advisor we can have.

This collection of short stories and  poems  invites a journey of discovery. Diverse but amicable characters are experiencing the joy of rediscovering their Self in manifold situations of everyday life.

A pocket book for small breaks in- between: to explore, reflect, dream, chuckle and relax.

I enjoyed reading this book.

I found the short stories and poems to be uplifting and positive and relatable to everyday life.

I think it is a good reminder that life is to short and you should live it.

This is the type of book you can read on your lunch break or whenever you have free time.

I would recommend this book.

Happy Reading Everyone to Self Discovery!
