Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
The Music Shop: A Novel - Rachel Joyce

This was such a lovely, heartwarming read. Just what I needed before I get deeper into Johnny Got His Gun!

Facts About Me: Music Connections

I have a serious music addiction. But there's a twist to it. When I hear a song in a movie, I tend to always associate that song with the movie, as long as I liked it, its place in the movie, and the movie itself. Or, alternatively, if it ended up with a negative association.

Examples:

There was a long time when I couldn't listen to 'I Only Have Eyes For You' by The Flamingos after hearing in a particularly memorable and unpleasant episode of Cold Case. I always listen to the song 'California Dreaming' by The Mamas and the Papas and think about the movie Congo. I hear 'The Chain' by Fleetwood Mac and think of Guardians of the Galaxy. Whenever 'Cry' by Mandy Moore comes on, I think about the film A Walk to Remember.

delicious, sexy read!
Scorch - H. J. Welch
I was gifted my copy of this book, that I write a review was not required, however, I found this review written up on my desk when I cleared it off, so here it is! Faced with the end of his boy band career, 23yr old Blake runs home to his family, only to find his parents have signed him up to an internet reality show. Elion happens to have had a crush on Blake since school. When the film crew following Blake blow an innocent encounter into something massive, Blake finds himself with Elion as a boyfriend. What starts off as a fictitious relationship rapidly turns into a real one for both young men. But someone doesn't want Blake to have Elion and both men could be in grave danger. How I can file a book on the "crime/thriller" shelf AND the "too stinking cute" shelf is beyond my current comprehensive, but when a book tells me that's where it needs to be, who am I to argue! The crime bit comes from the stalker/superfan who has targeted Blake as the object of their affections. I did see that one coming at me a mile off, though, and it's great to watch my ideas unfolding correctly. Ms Welch knows how to keep you on your toes, and even if I did see who it was, I did NOT see it going down like that! And the too stinking cute bit is the way Elion and Blake develop their relationship. Because, yes, in the beginning, it was all for show, it very quickly became something else for both of them. Something very REAL. And I loved watching that happen! A very delicious, steamy, sexy read. 5 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

MUSIC of the GHOSTS by Vaddey Ratner
Music of the Ghosts - Vaddey Ratner

MUSIC OF THE GHOSTS BY Vaddey Ratner 

 Oh my goodness! What to say about this book. First the good. The writing is lyrical. Some phrases are exquisite. The word usage is wonderful. Then there is the story. I am SOOOOO confused. I tried very hard to like this book, but just couldn’t do it. The Old Musician and his reminisces wander all over-- future, past, present -- all in present tense.

 

Somewhere around page 200, the story began to make sense. If you can make that far -- this tale of Cambodia and Khmer Rouge, death, love, life, hate, perseverance, family, faith -- becomes full of life and forces one to engage its loveliness and its heartbreak. Teera and the Old Musician enter your heart and mind and take up residence. They stay with you long after you have read the last page.

 

Still, only 3 of 5 stars for the slow start, the initial confusion, the ethereal sentences.
