The Giver of Stars
The Giver of Stars - Jojo Moyes

This was an excellent audio to listen to. I couldn’t understand why I was able to get the audio right off the shelf at the library while the list to obtain the physical book was miles long. Although there were a lot of discs, the novel went quickly. Before reading this novel, I wondered if this book was going to be like The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek that I had previously read and loved, since they sounded similar in nature. What I found after I read this book was, although they were similar, it was the women in each story that made the two books different.  

 

I really enjoyed Margery in this story.  This woman had some spit fire in her. I loved her spunk from the minute I heard her speak. I wondered if somewhere, down the road in my listening of these discs, if something would backfire and she would pay for her outspoken personality.  Afterall, considering where she was, this time in history, and her being a woman, she really was an outstanding individual. Margery was her own person; she wasn’t concerned about what others thought or said.  Margery did what she thought needed to done.  I loved how Margery encouraged the women who supported the library and how she brought all the women together.

 

As the women brought the books to their patrons who lived out on the mountains, they were bringing more than just books to them.  I could feel the love, compassion, and companionship that their visits provided as I listened to the author’s words.  

 

As the women gathered for their “library meetings,” a big grin came across my face as I wondered exactly what they would be discussing today. No topic was dismissed as their meetings became more personal and entertaining each time they met.  Was it actually an official meeting or a girl’s night out, back at the meeting house as they met and chatted?  

 

I was delighted as to how much these women had grown during these 11 discs.  When they first came together, they thought of this as only a job but as I put in each disc, what this position became, was much more.  This became one of those books where I didn’t want it to end.

 

This book wasn’t all about women either.  Relationships both sweet and sour entered the picture from the sounds coming from the next room, to crushes, to the way individuals began to soften around the edges when certain others were around.  Some men also voiced their opinion about the library and about the women working in it.  You can imagine how that went down.

 

It was an entertaining and fast novel to listen to and I highly recommend it.

Audio Review: Catch Me When I Fall (Falling Stars #1) by: A.L. Jackson (author), Virginia Rose (narrator), Jason Clarke (narrator)
Catch Me When I Fall (Falling Stars #1) - Jason Clarke,A.L. Jackson,Virginia Rose

 

 

 

Catch Me When I Fall is angst, heart and tragedy bundled within a coming of age romance. Royce and Carolina are looking to be true to themselves while trying to find common ground with each other. Jackson dives heart first into a world of pain to inspire hope. From brutal honesty to moments of raw vulnerability, Catch Me When I Fall takes the fragmented pieces of two hearts and invites us to watch them become whole.

Book review: Heartstopper vol 3 Alice oseaman
Heartstopper volume 3 - Alice Oseman

 

Feb 17-18 

 

In this volume we’ll see the Heartstopper gang go on a school trip to Paris! Not only are Nick and Charlie navigating a new city, but also telling more people about their relationship AND learning more about the challenges each other are facing in private…

Meanwhile Tao and Elle will face their feelings for each other, Tara and Darcy share more about their relationship origin story, and the teachers supervising the trip seem… rather close…?

Review : I love this series this volume was so cute and dealt with some hard topics like eating disorders and cutting . Charlie and Nick want to start telling there friends but they dont know how and Charlie is worried that people will bully Nick . They are getting ready to go on their trip to paris for school
. Nick's brother is home and hes a jerk . Nick and Charlie come out to aled Charlie wants to come out to Tao but Aled told Charlie that someone overheard Tao talking about Charlie being gay which is how he got outed . They are in paris now . Aled ,Charlie ,Nick and Tao end up rooming together. Tao and Elle obviously like each other Charlie tells Tao about him and Nick . Tao and Elle kiss aww I loved this volume cant wait for the next one .

Quotes: There's this idea that if you're not straight, you HAVE to tell all your family and friends immediately, like you owe it to them. But you don't. You don't have to do anything until you're ready.”

Reading progress update: I've read 13%. I've been waiting for this...
Light Of Impossible Stars - Gareth L. Powell

... I like the way Gareth Powell writes and I admire the breadth of topics he writes about.

 

This is the third book of the Embers Of War trilogy, that I've read as they were published.

 

Embers of War

 

 

Fleet of Knives

 

 

 

 

I had "Light Of Impossible Stars" on pre-order so I could read it as soon as it became available. I've put all reading challenges to one side so I can give this my attention. It's epic SF at its best: fast-paced, credible and still surprising. I've only just started and already I'm immersed in it.
