Review: The Book of Speculation: A Novel

The Book of Speculation: A Novel The Book of Speculation: A Novel by Erika Swyler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was attracted to this book because of its cover and its title. A book which has books on the cover and in the title is very attractive to me! :) They say not to judge a book by its cover because you can be disappointed… well…I was not disappointed! I loved this story that unfolds over centuries. Two stories connected by fate and blood and a curse that needs to be broken in order to save a life. Erika Swyler’s writing style is beautiful and she succeeded to make you feel like you were there. The story is about strong family bound; deception and curse. Well worth reading!!

Review: Where All Light Tends to Go

Where All Light Tends to Go Where All Light Tends to Go by David Joy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was surprised how short this book was, this does not mean I was disappointed though. At first, I was not sure I liked the main character. He was a bit too rough around the edges, but he grew on me. I am glad I continued reading and get to the spectacular end of this book. This story is graphic and raw. It was well written and the pace was perfect. It is more a guy book that I am used to. It is a good strong story.

Review: The Nightingale

The Nightingale The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am still all chocked up after finishing reading this brilliant story about two sister’s courageous acts during the Second World War. Vianne and Isabelle cannot be more different and yet they both became war heroines in their own ways. Kristin Hannah wrote a remarkable historical story that is raw and touching. All the secondary characters in the book contributed to the story and made you feel that if they were not there, the story would not be complete. This is a beautiful read and I recommend it.
