Out of My Mind - Sharon M. Draper

My favorite character in this book is Melody Brooks. This is because Melody never gives up easily to find ways for her to communicate with other students in her school. It was difficult for her to communicate with people as she could not talk, walk or even write. She has a photographic memory which means her head is like a video camera that is always recording. With a photographic memory, She could remember things easily and this is why she is the smartest kid in her whole school. Even though she is the smartest kid, no one knows it as she could not communicate with others. One day, she got a "Medi-Talker" which is something like a laptop but with huge buttons that Melody could press as she could not control her fingers normally. it can speak anything Melody wants to say. All she had to do is to press what she wants to say. Another reason why is that she likes music just like I do. She likes classical and also jazz as her mom loves classical and her dad loves jazz.

 

The reason why I enjoyed this book is that this book is very interesting as I had never read this kind of book about disabilities before. In this book, I learn that we should not give up easily and also not look down on people with disabilities. I like the sentence "it is my opinion that Melody is severely brain-damaged and profoundly retarded." in the book.

Dirty Mind
Dirty Mind - Roe Horvat

I have to say, I was not expecting this AT ALL!

Still in such awe over this story and this beautiful writing style. I am not sure if it was the cover or the blurb but this is not at all what I expected to get when I started this book. This was just amazing.

As I was when I finished "The Layover", I am just in a daze and unable to put into words properly my feelings on this book. It is a must read.

I am so anxious for the next story in this "series" and hear it will be full of angst. Bring it Roe.

Reading progress update: I've read 73%.
Dirty Mind - Roe Horvat

Out of pure self-preservation, I forbade myself from further analyzing the reality. Instead, I imagined growing old with Christian by my side, in my home, in my bed. I dreamed about falling asleep like this every night and waking up to the smell of his hair and the warm touch of his skin, until one day, I wouldn’t wake up at all.

Quantum Healing: Exploring the Frontiers of Mind Body Medicine
Quantum Healing: Exploring the Frontiers of Mind Body Medicine - Deepak Chopra Let's face it, Chopra has been a bestselling fantasy author for decades now. He never fails to churn out the most epic of fictional nonsense, but Quantum Healing has to be his most mind-boggling work. I just hope people realise this guy is a fiction author and not to be taken seriously.

Awesome Suspense!
Mind Game - Iris Johansen Mind Game - Iris Johansen

Mind Game by Iris Johansen is a fantastic read.  Ms Johansen has delivered a well-written book.  I'm a fan of Irish Johansen of long standing, but I admit I got burned out on Eve Duncan and stopped reading this series about 13 books into it.  Reading this book reminded me of how much I enjoy this author's writing style and I think now I'm ready to go back and pick up where I left off.  The characters in this book are fantastic.  Jane and Seth's story is loaded with suspense, nuggets of humor, a little supernatural woo-woo, drama and just a bit of spice.  I enjoyed reading Mind Game and look forward to catching up on this series.  Mind Game is book 22 of the Eve Duncan Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I won from Goodreads.
