Reading progress update: I've read 240 out of 416 pages.
The Red Necklace - Sally Gardner

Listening to this because I've become obsessed with Hiddleston's voice. It is not the first time it happens. I actually listened to the Host after having cried off of Meyer just because it was narrated by Kate Reading, who's declamation of Goblin Market was eargasmic. Oh, and I stayed with WoT for longer than I thought I could on the audiobooks alone too.

 

It's an entertaining YA so far, but I can't get past the blond chick on the cover. The heroine has DARK hair, which is mentioned A LOT.

A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers
A Voice in the Wind: 1 (Mark of the Lion) - Francine Rivers

One of the most beautiful stories I have ever read! This is a must read, and although it is Christian fiction, I think anyone could come away from it learning some truthful life lessons. Being a Christian myself, I found it to be one of the finest examples of God's love and mercy.

 

Highest recommendation!

A re-read for me, and one I should re-read more often.

The Little Voice
The Little Voice - Joss Sheldon Saying that this book is relatable is an understatement.

"Because I didn’t want to be what I ‘might be’. I wanted to be me."

Everyone has experienced the feeling of restriction, by your parents by your teacher,by yourself, by social constructs. Whatever it is, it is almost always based on ideas that you are taught since you are born.

How many people do you know went to university only because their parents wanted them to? Or people who went along with whatever their friends did or said because they didn’t want to be that person?

School teaches you how to think, how to talk, how to speak. Friends and family often tell you how to act. And that has long-term effects.

The Little Voice by Joss Sheldon shows said effects. It is very nicely paced, covering the authors life from childhood to adulthood in 200? pages.

The author explains the psychology involved in a easy way to understand, not using difficult words or too-complicated sentences.
Everything came across nicely which is refreshing when you compare it with books who try too hard to be “eye-opening” and end up being more confusing than anything else. This book is nothing like that.

It did went off topic at certain points but those insights ended up giving a more specific idea of who Yew is. We were able to understand him more and thus relate to him more.

Being in his head, you feel exactly what he feels, because the struggles he goes through are so often struggles of our own.

If you enjoy psychology and well-written biographies then please give this a read. You will not regret it.

Thank you BookTasters for providing this great experience.
