Review: Night Film


Night Film
Night Film by Marisha Pessl

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



I received a copy of this book from Random House of Canada in exchange for an honest review.

Night Film is an extraordinary book. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. The suspense, the twists and turns were well plotted and the author kept me perched on the edge of my seat throughout the story. I was caught in the madness and delirium of the main character and in the end I had my own doubts as to what was real and unreal. There are many characters in this book, each well defined and playing essential roles in the development of the story. The extra material in the book showing parts of websites, photos and news clips was ingenious and added so much to this awesome story.

I recommend it to all my friends who enjoy a good thriller. This one should be made into a movie!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book on juicing I read. I was amazed at the amount of information I got from one book. The author provided important health tips and set you up for success on your juicing journey.

I particularly enjoyed getting to know more about the benefits of all the possible ingredients and the recipes I tried were absolutely delicious. I did not know the difference between using a juicer or a blender and which one was best for your health. This book helped me purchase the right equipment to my juices healthy for me and taste divine. I had the misconception that juicing was not going to fill me up enough and that I would be hungry very quickly. That is not the case; which is a very positive aspect of juicing and encourage me to continue.

I am still new at this nutritious way of eating and this book has equipped me to be successful in enjoying juices that are good and healthy for me. Great book!!!

Review: Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes


Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes
Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes by Denise Grover Swank

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



It has been a while since I enjoyed a book as much as I enjoyed this one. This was a fun light story filled with action and lots of trouble. The main character, Rose, was an unusual damsel in distress. Now that I think about it... she appeared to be needing help, but in fact, she was very resourceful and proved herself to be able to stand on her two feet.

This is the first book of the series. I am looking forward to read the next ones.

Review: Room


Room
Room by Emma Donoghue

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



My friend Lynn loaned me this amazing book. I was captured by the story right from the beginning and right to the end. The story was suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat. This is a poignant account of motherly love and sacrifice. There were sensitive subjects which were thought provoking and many good survival advice. Although the story has a touching conclusion; it left me wanting to know more about the future and how well it will turn out for Jack and his mother.

I read somewhere that someone purchased the movie rights to this book. Personally, I don't want to see this story on the big screen; I rather leave my imagination undisturbed. This is not an easy subject to write or read about; never mind seeing it.
