I didn’t put the book down until it was finished. Intuitive how things are misconstrued and perceived and the ripple effect things have.

The Noel Diary
by Richard Paul Evans

View in Library Catalog



Any book that Richard Paul Evans writes is my new favorite. This story started out a little sad. I felt sorry for the main character Jacob Churcher. Unfortunately, he has a rough start in life, because his mother forces him to leave home at the tender age of sixteen to face life on his own. Years later, Jacob is contacted by an attorney who informs him that his mother has died. He returns home to the house that she has left and to settle her affairs. No doubt it is with a heavy heart that Jacob returns home. It is while he is cleaning out his mother's home cluttered home that he finds a diary in the house by Noel. Then Jacob meets someone named Rachel, who will change Jacob's life. What started out as a sad story, had a very happy ending.

More Than I Love My Life Grossman
by David Grossman

View in Library Catalog



Challenging read for many reasons, but I'm glad I've read it. Grossman's books have been banned all over the world, so I've completed one of my missions. The book moves from Israel to Northern Europe (including Yugoslavia) as it follows the saga of three women: Vera, Nina, and Nina's daughter. Secrets are revealed about sacrifices women make (and Rafi, the father of Nina's daughter). Questions arise about our choices and what we are willing to sacrifice. Vera is dying (she is based on a real character David Grossman knew). The major problem I had may have been that something was lost from Hebrew to English; there were no chapter breaks, which meant that it read like a stream of consciousness. Even if you aren't Jewish, I would still recommend it.

Sunday At The Sunflower Inn (Honey Creek, #4)
by Jodi Thomas

This novel centers around Jessica Ann McKenzie's cafe, where characters of all ages in the town seize their chance at love. I received an ARC as part of a goodreads give-away. Contempary romance is not a genre I typically read. However, I've recently been trying books outside what I would normally enjoy. In my opinion, this story was just o.k. It basically reinforced why I typically do not read books in this genre. With that being said, I did enjoy that despite it being the 4th book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone. I did not feel as I was missing out on any context/back story starting at number 4.I also enjoyed the "vignette"style"- The character's stories within the larger story. I did like the cover but then again-sunflowers are my favorite! This book is for readers that enjoy light reading and happy endings.

This book was cool but also scary.

Alloy Of Law
by Brandon Sanderson

View in Library Catalog



A sequel to the original Mistborn series starts with this book Alloy of Law. It's a good read, but not as good as the original Mistborn trilogy. This series of books are set in a more modern age with a Western cowboyish angle. I am not sure if I am just not a big fan of this genre or if Brandon Sanderson is a better writer with the traditional medieval setting. For fans of Mistborn, this is still very worthwhile to read.
