16 Tasks for the Festive Season--2
The Breaking Wave - Nevil Shute

Posting task 2-- Square 3

 

Book themes for Veteran’s Day/Armistice Day: Read a book involving veterans of any war, books about WWI or WWII (fiction or non-fiction). 

 

A WWII story of a WREN ordinance officer and two Australian brothers, one a pilot and the other a frogman, in the lead up to the Normandy Invasion. 

 

Oddly enough, this book also counts for the Penance Day read in Square 4: ...where someone is struggling with feelings of guilt or with their conscience (regardless over what).

All the Breaking Waves ★☆☆☆☆
All the Breaking Waves: A Novel - Kerry Lonsdale, Dara Rosenberg

Update @ 10%

Okay, I’ve given it a full hour of audio time, or 10% of the total book, which is more than double my minimum 20 minutes that I usually give before DNF’ing a book. It’s just not well-written. The narrative gives details from a first person point of view that normally belong to a 3rd person POV, even sometimes making observations that would be belong to 3rd person omniscient. It’s just not plausible that someone is going to be so continuously self-aware of their own involuntary body language. This woman is so internally focused it’s a wonder she’s able to interact with the outside world at all. And the choice of telling us every damn moment to moment detail is exhausting. Who cares that she sighed before standing up and that she carried some bins (that were not critical to the scene or events) to her car. Or that they packed and loaded their car before setting off on an out of town trip? It's like death by a thousand paper cuts. 

 

Anyway, DNF at 10%. Dara Rosenberg’s reading was okay, but it couldn’t elevate the source material. Returned the book to Audible for a refund. I guess I’ll have to find another book for The 16 Tasks of the Festive Season, Square 2 - Read a book that takes place on the sea, near the sea, or on a lake or a river, or read a book that has water on the cover.

I looked over at Cassie, and my breath caught in my throat. She stood, frozen, her eyes moonlike circles as she stared at me. Her face paled. My heart lurched. I knew that look, and swore under my breath. Not another premonition. Give the girl a break. Cassie shrieked, and I jerked. The phone slipped from my fingers. She screamed again, high pitched, curdling my blood. What had she seen? Who had she seen? I glanced around the park. There wasn’t anyone we knew. She always knew the people in her visions.

 

“Mommy!” She ran to me and slammed into my stomach. She pounded me with her fists, still screaming my name. This was a bad one. The worst one yet. I couldn’t imagine the nightmares she’d have this time.

 

How can this author use so many words to convey so little? This writing style is just not engaging at all. I feel as though I’m just being fed information.

Max was shaking his head. "Careers are going to be made, based on what happens over the next few days," he pointed out.

Jules just looked at him for several long seconds. "That might be truly the most offensive thing you've ever said to me."

Cover Reveal - Duplicitous

 

 

#COVERREVEAL #COMINGSOON #NEWRELEASE #DUPLICITOUS

 

Title:  Duplicitous (Decent into Madness: The Breaking of Theresa Varghese, #1)

Cover Design: Stacy Ane with Q Designs

 

 

It was meant to be an easy job; go to my sister’s and update her security system. But nothing is ever easy, is it?

 

My sister lives the epitome of the perfect life, but, when her husband announces he’s filing for divorce, I know nothing will ever be the same.

 

Things begin to spiral out of control, leaving me reeling as I struggle to make sense of what he’s told me. After waking in my sister’s bed, covered in blood, I’m left struggling to piece together the mystery of what happened before I go mad.

 

Or die trying.
