The Novel Cure: An A-Z of Literary Remedies
The Novel Cure, An A-Z of Literary Remedies - Ella Berthoud,Susan Elderkin

In terms of quantity and breadth, this might be the mother of all books on book recommendations.  Quality of the recommendations likely lies in the eye of the beholder, although there has to be something in here for everyone, just from a statistical point o view.  

 

This is a reference of maladies; everything from going off the rails, to giving birth, to children, under pressure to have.  Each entry (and they are legion) has a t least one book recommendation, if not an entire list (see: turning forty-something, books on); some with commentary, some without - presumably because their inclusion is obvious.  There are also occasional sets about book collecting, b book lending, over-coming an over-hyped book, finding your book identity and so on. 

 

This is NOT a book to be tackled all at once or even cover to cover over a long period of time.  This is a true reference for those times when you need a book that is a match for your mood, or just desperate for inspiration.  

 

This is not a book for people trying to combat their TBR piles - but I'm telling you about it anyway.

It's hard to take your eyes off of this pair. Set in one the most beautiful locations in the world,Hawaii, these two find solace in the environment and later in each other. Nate needs to learn to slow down and de-stress. Jessie learns how to trust in herself again and find happiness in the current moment, not the distant past. The journey is long and the payoff can be slow, but the sweetness of the delivery gives the heart something to sing about. A soothing balm.

Sweet read, love conquers the past
First Street Church Romances: Love's Cure (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Sweet Grove Beginnings Book 4) - Emily Murdoch

A quick sweet story that brings two wounded souls together. Mariana's blindness has made her angry for most of her life. Gerald's one mistake follows him to Sweet Grove. Her need for independence from her family is encouraged by Gerald. Feelings grow fast with the help of a little faith. I enjoyed the characters and this small town as it grows.

I received a copy of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

The Death Cure
The Death Cure - James Dashner The conclusion to the Maze Runner series may rank as the best for me. I enjoyed seeing the deception of WICKED and others to Thomas and his crew. You never knew what happened when and who to trust. Even though he did not opt for the memory surgery, or maybe that was not even real--maybe they just planned the killzone autopsy all along--, it would have been interesting to see him get his memories back. I guess I will just need to read the sequel, The Kill Order. Like many of the dystopian novel series, they spent a lot of time just driving/flying from point to point, but I liked how the story developed.
