Book Tour: More Than a Soldier
More Than a Soldier: One Army Ranger's Daring Escape From the Nazis - Steve DiMarco,D.M. Annechino

More than a Soldier is a really good book about a soldier and his journey to survive. We meet Angelo first in a train car, with a few of his buddies and comrades. The story then goes back to when he signs up and what his family life is like. Will he make back to his battalion?

 

We get to follow Angelo and struggles through the military. We see how the Germans treat their prisoners and how rough life was behind enemy lines. The Germans are taking their prisoner through some extreme things.

 

The author did a wonderfully great job. With this being more of a Nonfiction book, It really told the story on each and every page. It was well written. Does the 1st Battalion survive or is Angelo the only survivor? You will want to read the book. You do get a somewhat of a tour of Italy.

I am your typical good girl, I work hard, I don't drink and I have never been with a guy.

I am invisible to those around me, and I like it that way until one bad night leads me to run away from my dark past and move in with the campus bad boy. Jackson McKenzie. Jackson oozes sex appeal and intrigue. Girls surround him wanting to be the next girl he charms into bed. He either is playing in his band or being the college Casanova. But he treats me differently from the other girls, he's kind to me, treating me like I'm fragile, being my everything. We need each other, in more ways than I ever could imagine. He teaches me how to be happy, smile and have fun but will it be me who teaches him how?

Heartbreaking, moving story. But a terrible storyteller.
A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea: One R... A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea: One Refugee's Incredible Story of Love, Loss, and Survival - Melissa Fleming

A few years ago a story made the rounds in the media: a refugee helped save two very small children (barely toddlers) who were fleeing with their families out of the violence of Syria. By some miracle Doaa Al Zamel stays afloat and manages to get herself and the babies to rescue. This is the story of her early life and fleeing the terror to a new life. The book is written by Melissa Fleming, the chief spokesperson for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees who initially told Doaa's story at a TED talk. 

 

We learn about Doaa's early life and family. As a young child Doaa had a relatively peaceful upbringing but things soon changed in Syria and the situation gradually becomes untenable. After fleeing with her family for Egypt, Doaa finds she must leave again with her fiance, Bassem. Together they embark on a harrowing journey to Europe.

 

It's a fascinating story and should really bring home the horrors refugees are fleeing, but I am amazed at the high reviews this book received. It is not well-written at all. I thought Fleming was a ghostwriter (I didn't know of her position with the UN until I read the flap) helping Doaa tell her story. But the writing is at best pedestrian and could have used a lot more tightening up. This is another example of a TED talk/magazine article (I believe Doaa wrote at least one piece about her experiences) that should have never been made into a book or at least should have had a much better editor/ghostwriter to help.

 

It's a horrifying tale that has far too many similar stories told by far too many people. But I'd recommend most readers skip this and either watch the TED talk (I haven't watched it though) or seek out Doaa's writings instead.

Book Tour Review that I am Involved with.
One More Breath - Amber Garr

One More Breath
Amber Garr
Publication date: November 1st 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Sydney Westbrook has had enough.

After a fight with her abusive ex-boyfriend leaves her in the hospital once again, she knows it’s time for a change. Just out of college, Sydney decides to accept a position as a live-in nurse. But leaving the comfort of Atlanta and the support of her small circle of friends is hard to do. And when she meets her ailing, stubborn client, Sydney second guesses all of her choices.

A southern family with a social status to maintain, the McNamara’s think very little of Sydney, especially since she reminds Mrs. McNamara so much of the daughter-in-law she never accepted. But when Sydney encounters Quinn, the defiant grandson, her views of the family begin to change. And her heart begins to heal the hole left behind by the abuse.

Sydney and Quinn may have little time together, but they make the most out of it. A public display of their relationship is short-lived when Sydney learns just how far her client will go to save her family’s namesake. And when Sydney’s past suddenly rips into her new world, her happiness with Quinn threatens to come to an end.

But truth and friendship will help Sydney finally live the life she’s chosen while loving the one she chose.

My Review

The book was pretty good I really loved Sydney and her love interest Quinn. And Sydney's ex was such an abusive ass.  I really don't usually read these types of books as much as I use too. 

I really didn't care for Quinn's father at all, he didn't care about what his son wanted. He just wanted to control his son, at least that's how I feel about that subject.

I liked Quinn's Grandma more towards the end of the book. The book had romance, action, and adventure. I really loved how the book end. I would definitely recommend this book to other individuals.
