Hey guys ! Idk but this month and last month I’ve read the best books . They either made me cry or laugh or just sigh of happiness lol . I needed the mixture .
The first book will be
The Things We Cannot say By: Kelly Rimmer
This book takes place in two different times . In the 1940s and in modern day . You have Alina and you have Alice . Alina and Alice lives intertwine although years and years have passed . This book is about the Holocaust and some parts are painful but the story was so beautifully written . There were parts were I imagined myself walking with this family . Through hills , through woods to escape the nazis . It’s a story of love of family and triumph even in the face of death . It’s a must read .
Next up is my favorite book ever to date
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill By:Abbi Waxman
Starting off I have to stay that Alli is a brilliant author . Her writing is honest and real and unfiltered. This book is about Nina who’s a beautiful introvert who works in a book store ( she reminded me so much of myself which is why I think I’m so obsessed lol ) She lives alone with her cat Phil and her life has been pretty much like that for a while . But when her dad ( that her mother never really told her about ) passes away, she finds out that he not only left her something in his will but she has host of siblings nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews . Her life is basically turned upside down . What’s great about this book it shows Nina planner . I laughed extremely hard at this book . Some parts hit me when she was experiencing anxiety attacks . Or the fact that she’s a bookworm like me . I fell in love with the characters in this book . I also had to find definitions for some of the words because some of them I never heard of !! Can you believe that ?! But it was a brilliant book and will always be my favorite till this day .
Last but not least is
“The Art of Breaking things” By: Laura Sibson
This book I actually read in 2-3 days . I legit swallowed it lol . It was a heavy book very heavy and it does contain sexual abuse which why it was so heavy . You have this beautiful girl name Skye short for Skylar who was abused by her mother’s boyfriend when she was 12 and she told her mom but her mother was too drunk to even notice . So since then she’s filled herself up with drugs and drinks to fill that emptiness that hollowness to numb it . She also has this beautiful little sister Emma who she wants to protect with her life when her mothers boyfriend dan comes back . This book was a hard read because I felt the pain . I felt the pain when she was creating art through pain . But it was a beautiful novel .
I love this line at the end .
“My mind whispers warnings that I’m still a little broken and that no guy not even Ben can fix me . It’s an inside job . I sense myself falling and tumbling . But this time I’m not ripping down the world with me . This time I’m falling because that’s the only way to test my wings ”
