Fool for Love (Gansett Island #2) by Marie Force
Fool for Love - Marie Force

 

 

When the heart is at the wheel there is no set route. There are always surprises in store and lessons to be learned. Just ask Janey and Joe. She holds his heart, but is clueless on what to do with it. He knows her soul and wants to heal the pieces of her broken heart. Fool for Love is the epitome of life. A never ending cycle of lessons to be taught and emotions in need of exploration. Gansett Island is the perfect destination for romance.

Fool's Fate - Robin Hobb

 

I'm glad Fitz got a happy ever after, but it felt like it just trailed off anticlimactically into the sunset.

 

The Fools poem made me want to cry.

The Golden Fool (The Tawny Man, #2) - Robin Hobb

 

I don't know whether to feel sorry for Fitz or not.

 

Like when Chade is angry because Fitz expected there to be strings attached to him helping with Haps apprenticeship.

Of course he thought so – there have been strings attached to almost everything in his life.

 

Or when Chade assumes Fitz knows everything about the Skill despite knowing Fitz was never trained and even knowing what Galen did to him.

 

Fitz has been badly used for other peoples purposes with rarely a thought to how he might feel.

 

Then he goes in full whining mode and I just want to slap him.

 

Old or not, I think Chade is just an asshole.

Holy Fool Holy Father - Nicholas A. Marziani Jr.

Holy Fool, Holy Father by Nicholas A. Marziani Starts out with glossary of words and what they mean. This book will entertain you throughout the course of reading it as it has a bit of everything that will keep you interested and turning the pages. Story starts out with the life of Misha as a boy in Russia and how he's trained from others to believe in God and he likes adventure. He hopes to improve by going to school. Love correlation of dance and religion. Love skills the parents teach him so he can survive in the future. Love hearing of the customs, traditions and locations traveled to, so enlightening. Learned so much from the perspective of the priests side of things. Dancing just brings everything together as it holds a special place for both. Loved learning about the love locks, have seen them in locations we've visited but never knew the whole story. It's the little things like Murano glass that makes an appearance here. I search for the other treasures hidden throughout this book. Book goes forward and love the premonitions of things to occur and I can see the world as described in my own eyes and think electric/digital age could expire. Love hearing of the electrical/electronic discussions and all the math and numbers and combined with everything else, it matters. I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review
