Book Trial: The Light Between Oceans

The Review I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn’t. I suppose there was an important lesson learned in the end but really it was just a depressing and heart-breaking story. Tom is a broken man who doesn’t know how to put down his foot when it matters. The war and his life before Isabel has left him feeling undeserving of love and when he finds someone who loves him, he just can’t say no, even when she should. Throughout the story Isabel was a very naïve person. Eventually, she herself became a very broken person after losing her three […]

Book Trial: Giovanni goes to Med School

My Thoughts Although this story was only about 78 pages I left like it took me a while to read. My life is so full of interruptions these days. Unfortunately, I found the story to be unbelievable. There was a pretty good explanation of how the “zombie” as able to be animated however, I left that Giovanni’s reaction to what was happening was unrealistic. Aside from that, why the heck did he decide to take the damn dog everywhere? That was rather annoying and not just to me, but to the other characters as well. Although I didn’t get to know […]

What I’m Reading #1

This year hasn’t gone to plan. But I figured I can at at least keep you all updated on what I’m reading. In the past I would create a simple list of what I was reading and what I was going to read.  Let me just update you on what I’m reading at the moment. I have no plans on what to read next. I keep saying I’ll read something or the other but then when I’m done with a book I go on to something that wasn’t on my list. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman I picked […]

Book Trial: The Nightingale

The Review I loved this story. I like that they give us two completely different characters. Although these two sisters both lost their parents (one to death and one left shell-shocked from World War I), they have both dealt with it in their own ways. Vianne finds herself a husband and tries to work on her own new picture-perfect family while Isabelle, who refuses to be rejected by her father, goes from school to school, breaking the rules and trying to get her father’s love and attention. Through the story, we see a side of World War II that hardly anyone has […]

Book Trial: Harper’s Ten

Disclaimer: I received this book as a gift from the author for reviewing the first book in the Fractured Space Series. He did not request a review. My Thoughts: I really liked the first book I read from Cressey and so when he gave me this book as a gift, I knew I had to read it. You can read my review of that book here. It thought me something about the author, . In this book Cal is on one of his first missions as a new Lieutenant. It’s the first time that he’s really responsible for so many people’s […]
