The Book of Everlasting Things is a story that I enjoyed taking my time with. It is a story about a perfumers family and a calligraphers family and all that changes due to the Partition of India in 1947. My appreciation of essential oils and the power of scent added extra enjoyment to this read for me. It is an ambitious first novel by Aanachal Malhotra that tackles heavy issues of religion, life-meaning and love. I highly recommend this book!
This book made me abandon my to-do list. It is not a hot romance about an affair; rather it is one of the most well written stories I've read about the bond between mother and child. The writing is creative and dynamic. It has inspired me to read my first book by Agatha Christie and it has filled me with gratitude for the gift of motherhood.
I had fun reading this fast paced novel that takes you into the lives of the elites in Hollywood. It is a creative coming of age love story that leaves you wanting to know what happens next to Matilda Duplaine.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is open to the unknown of the afterlife and has lost a loved one. I find it a story of hope inspiring the possibility that our loved ones who have died are still with us if we are open to the signs.
I read this book several years ago and it is one of those books that stays with you. If you are looking for a story of resilience and love read this book. If you are ready to allow a book to take you to Burma, Asia read this book. And if you are ready for a break from Colleen Hoover, and love a good romance - this is just the pick.
If you are looking for a book to read out loud this summer to a child, look no further! This is it! It is a heart warming story about true friendship and change. Enjoy the book and then the movie!
When I read the synopsis of this book I wasn't sure I wanted to read a story about a crack in the pool and all it symbolizes. Now having read it, the bright blue cover I find a bit misleading. It is a sad story about a daughter processing her mother losing her light, losing her memory, losing herself. I am glad I read it as it is a thought provoking book leaving me a bit unsettled; just hoping my parents age with their memory, as well as myself.
When I read this book I didn't realize it was a memoir. It reads like a novel and is full of insight, inspiration for self reflection + lots of humor.
Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: The Journal: 52 Weekly Sessions to Transform Your Life (Hardcover)
I am a big fan of a daily journal practice. Now I use just blank journals but if just starting on a journaling journey this is a beautiful guided journal.
Jayne Pillemer writes a beautiful lyrical story about how our loved ones stay with us even when they are physically gone. A wonderful book to help a child process the loss of a loved one.
