A Kind of Romance By Lane Hayes 99 cents! So good!
A Kind of Romance - Lane Hayes

A Kind of Story

Zeke Gulden is a ruthless Wall Street exec. His hard-edged, no-nonsense attitude has served him well in the cutthroat business world, but less so in his personal life. When he finds out his ex-boyfriend cheated on him with a coworker, Zeke can’t let go—not until he finds a way to get even. However, his meddlesome father has other ideas. The new hire at the family-owned bagel store is somewhat colorful, but his dad is sure he’s the perfect man for Zeke.

Benny Ruggieri is a fiercely proud New Yorker who dreams of making it big as a costume designer in the theater. In the meantime, he’s working two part-time jobs in the food biz. When his new boss sets him up with his successful son, Benny has zero expectations. If nothing else, he figures he can entertain himself by making the uptight businessman squirm. Instead, the two become unlikely friends with an inexplicable attraction they can’t ignore. Benny might be the one to help Zeke set aside his quest for revenge, if he’s willing to let go and forgive what he can’t forget… and give in to an unexpected kind of romance.

Calvinist at Prayer: "Our Kind of Traitor" by John Le Carré
Our Kind of Traitor - John le Carré


(original review, 2010)

About a third of the way through “Our Kind of Traitor”, I sat back and reflected on the elegance of the prose and the grace and ease with which the narrative moved back and forth through time, and two words came inescapably to mind: Joseph Conrad. I can't believe, after all the le Carré novels I had already read at that point, that this was the first time the comparison ever occurred to me, but there it is.

 

If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review.

Wonder - R.J. Palacio

Auggie is a home-schooled fifth grader who wants to experience more. He has a medical condition that has left his face disfigured. On his first day, the student that was supposed to help him starts to bully him. Auggie is bullied by this classmate, Julian and Julians friends, but makes a couple friends throughout the year. The school year is full of Auggie being bullied but at the end of the school year Julian (the bully) leaves for a new school and Julians friends help defend Auggie from the seventh graders. I would use this book to talk about everyones differences and how important it is to be kind to each other.
