LITTLE BLUE TRUCK'S SPRINGTIME by Alice Schertle
Little Blue Truck's Springtime - Alice S... Little Blue Truck's Springtime - Alice Schertle,Jill McElmurry

Little Blue Truck drives through his country neighborhood checking out the barn areas to see who is there. There are goats, pigs, cows, ducks, chickens, and sheep. He meets them and finds out what is new with them.

 

This is an adorable books for infants and toddlers. There is rhyming and counting as well as learning how the animals look. I liked the pull open tabs to see the babies and count them. I also liked that this is a board book and the pages are thick so as a child pulls the doors open on each page it will be hard for them to rip the pages or book. Perfect for those little ones who like trucks and animals. Teaches without being preachy.

Book Blurb:

 

Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional?

 

I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle.

 

But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone.

 

My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy.

 

Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?

Jett (Arizona Vengeance, #10)Jett by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #10 in the Arizona Vengeance series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this sexy series in order.

Jett has been persistent. He has been patient, well sort of. He is just not giving up when it comes to Emory. Now he has to have her. So he intends to win her over.

Emory knows what a player Jett is. She finds him attractive, sure. The relentless pursuit has her thinking. She has been hurt before. Can this even look like more than a one night stand?

This story was just more fun that I imagined. The couple was easy to root for. The heat is staggering, so when you ready your copy, I recommend an ice cream cone in one hand. If you get a change to listen to the audiobook, take it. The voices are awesome!

Impossible
Relay (Changing Lanes Book 1) - Layla Reyne

 Dane is afraid to be himself.  It's costing him everything he wants, and, its killing him slowly.  Can he reach out and grab the stars?  Alex is the one that got away. What would happen if he held on tight?

 

Alex will do what it takes for his team to grab the gold.  The pain is second nature at this point. Then he has to work with Dane again, and the sparks between them ignite.  The plan is to stay away. But his heart is whispering to move closer......

 

This story caught me by surprise.  There is so much actual story for both characters.  I was sucked in so fast.  Then I could not put it down until it was over.  Each page was so good, and I could not help myself.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Bountiful (True North Book 4) - Sarina Bowen
3.5 stars
 
I was consumed by this story in the beginning but it did seem to loose me some further in. I like the characters. They're both good people. I guess that her being so reluctant to let him try seemed to draw out a bit too much IMO. They wanted to be together and he always came across as respectful and honest. I did enjoy the story. I do recommend it especially for those that like a sweet romance. No one is the bad guy here. It's just people figuring things out. I plan to continue the series.

Rettungsinseln
The Comfort Book - Matt Haig

Matt Haig sind trübe Gedanken, Verzweiflung und Hoffnungslosigkeit vertraut. Der Autor musste bereits erfahren, was es heißt, eine Depression durchzumachen. Für schwierige Zeiten hat er eine Auswahl an kurzen Texten und Zitaten zusammengetragen, die ihm Trost gespendet haben. Sie soll dabei behilflich sein, die schönen Seiten des Lebens zu erkennen.

 

„The Comfort Book - Gedanken, die mir Hoffnung machen“ ist ein Sachbuch von Matt Haig.

 

Meine Meinung:

Das Buch besteht aus vier Teilen. Diese sind wiederum in Kapitel unterschiedlicher Länge untergliedert, manche davon sehr kurz, andere ausführlicher. Das Buch ist so aufgebaut, dass man es weder chronologisch noch vollständig lesen muss, um es zu verstehen. Dieses Konzept finde ich sehr sinnvoll für diese Art von Sachbuch. Eine Form von Inhaltsverzeichnis wäre jedoch hilfreich gewesen, um einzelne Kapitel besser wiederzufinden.

 

Stilistisch ist das Buch sehr abwechslungsreich. Es enthält Erfahrungsberichte, Listen, Lebensweisheiten, Zitate und Rezepte. In sprachlicher Hinsicht ist das Buch nicht spektakulär, aber angemessen.

 

Inhaltlich handelt es sich um eine Sammlung tröstender Worte und Erkenntnisse, die der Autor als seine „Rettungsinseln“ bezeichnet. Die Gedanken, Betrachtungen, Erinnerungen, Selbstreflexionen und Beispiele sollen Hoffnung und neue Zuversicht in verschiedenen, vor allem schwierigen Lebenssituationen spenden, inspiriert von eigenen und fremden Erfahrungen. Dabei bedient sich der Autor auch bei der Philosophie und aus dem Gedankenschatz bekannter Persönlichkeiten wie Marc Aurel und James Baldwin.

 

Als Leitmotiv nennt Matt Haig das Verbundensein - aller Dinge, Momente, Emotionen und Menschen. Das Buch soll dabei helfen, Trost und Halt in uns selbst zu finden. Die Aussicht, von jemandem lernen zu können, der offen zugibt, an Depressionen und Panikattacken zu leiden, hat mich neugierig auf die Sammlung gemacht. Naturgemäß konnte ich nicht aus allen Kapiteln etwas ziehen. Beispielsweise hat jeder und jede ein andere Songauswahl, die ihn oder sie beruhigt und tröstet, sodass die abgedruckte Liste Haigs nicht 1:1 auf andere Menschen übertragbar ist. Zudem gibt es immer wieder nur kurze Impulse, die eine Therapie oder ähnliche Intervention bei ernsten psychischen Problemen natürlich nicht ersetzen können. Aber es finden sich viele schlaue und wohl durchdachte Sätze und Ideen in der Sammlung. So bringt die Lektüre etliche Denkanstöße und hat mich mehrfach zum Nachdenken angeregt. Mehr noch: Das Buch hat in mir den Wunsch geweckt, selbst eine solche persönliche Sammlung in einem Notizbuch anzulegen.

 

Das Cover mit dem stilisierten Sonnenaufgang passt mit seiner Symbolik gut zum Inhalt. Schön finde ich, dass auch der Originaltitel für die deutsche Ausgabe übernommen wurde.

 

Mein Fazit:

„The Comfort Book - Gedanken, die mir Hoffnung machen“ von Matt Haig ist ein sehr persönliches Sachbuch, das vielerlei schlaue Gedanken und Denkimpulse bietet. Eine empfehlenswerte Lektüre, die dazu einlädt, sie immer mal wieder zur Hand zu nehmen.
