Love Letters to the DeadLove Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book – I couldn’t put it down. It was beautifully written; the letters Laurel wrote made the story come alive. While there is no happily ever after – I was okay with the ending. The story was heartbreaking and full of anguish, it’s going to leave you melancholic for some time after finishing but in a way that’s real.

Book Review – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book but it was definitely a struggle to read – it was not something I could sit down and breeze through. I felt that I was back in high school, sitting in Honors English and reading each page, sentence by sentence, word by word and taking time to digest what was going on. But I enjoyed Honors English and I enjoyed the book. The story line drew me in and the characters made me stay. They are rich, interesting and so much more than you expect them to be.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Elizabeth Gilbert weaves a remarkable tale that is exciting, fascinating and superb. Alma Whittaker is more than just a character, she’s an amazing, intellectual and interesting woman. I found the book engaging and consuming – I finished in one sitting. I fell in love with this story, my heart broke during this story and it was healed by the end of this story.
