After The End is an emotional story that hits close to home for the author. This is a story about sick little boy whose parents are at odds with how to proceed with this medical care. This book will give readers many discussion points & probably a few tears too. Keep the Kleenex at the ready. .

Do you enjoy classics? Personally, I find them pretty hard to read, but once I get past the language I sometimes enjoy them! My favourites are Dracula and Frankenstein, so I guess I think I have for classic horror 🤷🏻‍♀️👻🎃 ••

Book Review 🐝
I received an ARC of The Beekeeper of Aleppo, (U.S. Pub. date: 8/27/19). I wanted to read this book since the start of the year when I first heard of it.
🐝
📚
Earlier this year I read a memoir of a Rwandan refugee, The Girl Who Smiled Beads, and, as I have said previously, this is one of my favorite books this year. Beekeeper is a fictional tale of a Syrian refugee family. But before I can discuss the book I must first point out a potential issue some may have with this book. Ms. Lefteri is not a Syrian refugee. She has not been a refugee at any point in her life and as such there could be a claim that this book is an act of cultural appropriation. I will defer this discussion to those that are best prepared to address it. I will say that in the author note Lefteri discusses her work a UNICEF supported refugee camp in Greece. She also discusses her father's PTSD following his time in the military during the 1974 war in Cyprus.
🐝
📚
This story is told by Nuri, a husband, father, and beekeeper. It is told in a series of flashbacks from England as he waits to see if his family will be granted refugee status. Through these flashbacks the reader learns of how Nuri meets his wife, becomes a beekeeper, socializes with family and friends; in general we learn of his life before the war. The reader is there as unrest becomes war and follows along as Nuri and others flee from one country to another.
🐝
📚
As the story unfolds, the reader begins to see how PTSD manifests in different ways with different people. For example, his wife Afra, a talented artist, goes blind after witnessing the unthinkable. The reader is also witness to the kindness and generosity people can show each other, even strangers, as well as mans inhumanity to other men.
🐝
📚
My criticism is that the author seems to underestimate the reader and at the end had the story explain itself in some detail. I didn't think this necessary. I think it was all quite clear as it was.
🐝
📚
Even with this criticism I really liked the book and recommend it.
📚
Thank you to Random House for this ARC.

{#partner @berkleypub} Are you headed on a last family vacation before the summer ends? Then this book is for you! Sometimes I think my extended family are only the crazy ones.....that couldn’t be farther from the truth! I was afraid reading about a crazy family vacation would hit too close to home, but this was perfect. I loved how the book had a story from each of the family members. A super entertaining summer read! Thank you @berkleypub for my gifted copy. Happy Pub Day @elyssafriedland 💕

An afternoon xiangqi lesson with Pa.
It’s so neat what you can learn about yourself while you play chess or read. Find me lounging at a park in joggers doing one of two activities this summer 🤭

REVIEW - Almost Sisters ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ If there’s one reason I needed a very large latte this afternoon, it’s because I stayed up late last night finishing Almost Sisters 📖

I didn’t know what this book was going to be about. The blurb mentioned something about an artist in the comic world and it had good reviews on @goodreads

This story weaved family, race, illness, and a crime set in the South perfectly together into experiences I could relate to (besides murder!) This is one of those books I’ll be thinking about for awhile. I’m so happy I picked it up and gave it a chance ✨

🔥Amor do passado🔥
✒ Um soldado determinado ✒
✨Uma paixão intensa✨

Link: bit.ly/balemusica

Adam O'RELLY está de volta para casa mais maduro e determinado a conquistar a doce bailarina de olhos de uísque, Yasmine Madani.
Nem mesmo o horror da guerra, a distância e o tempo foram capazes de interromper os sentimentos do soldado.
Mas, para viver essa história que foi interrompida, eles precisarão enfrentar a oposição da mãe elitista de Yasmine, e o ódio de um homem poderoso que ambiciona se casar com a bela bailarina.
Descubra a intensidade do amor, a dança e a ambição.
Inspirado no clássico "O Soldadinho de Chumbo"

Happy Reading Rush Day 2! Here’s my post for the #rrbookoutfit challenge! It was rainy and dreary so I couldn’t completely fulfill my vision, but I think this will do. I finished ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE, which means I’m on schedule, and gave it 3.5 stars. I’m also getting ready to read some of CLOCKWORK PRINCESS! How is your RR progress?

Oi, gente! Aproveitando o aniversário de 9 anos da (ex, infelizmente) boyband britânica One Direction, vim trazer um pouco da biografia que foi lançada em 2012 pelo Danny White, contando um pouco da trajetória de cada um dos 5 participantes dessa boyband maravilhosa!
Já leu essa biografia? Você também é ou era fã na época de auge desses bebês?

Sinopse:  Com sucessos em primeiro lugar nas paradas, ingressos de shows instantaneamente esgotados e um BRIT Award nas mãos, não se pode negar que o One Direction domina o pop britânico. Sua popularidade também está se espalhando pelo mundo, conforme adolescentes se apaixonam pela banda, graças a suas aparições em grande estilo. A primeira biografia completa do One Direction conta de onde vieram esses lindos e talentosos garotos e narra a alucinante trajetória que mudou suas vidas, transformando-os em astros poderosos do mundo pop. Acompanhamos a jornada de altos e baixos do X Factor, programa de talentos que terminaram em terceiro lugar, sendo imediatamente contratados por Simon Cowell, o que os impulsionou a um sucesso comercial instantâneo e colossal. As histórias de vida de Harry, Niall, Louis, Zayn e Liam são reveladas em 'One Direction - a biografia'. Esta é uma leitura obrigatória para qualquer fã.

I’m definitely on a YA kick right now which is something I never knew I needed. I forgot what it was like to lose myself in a book so hard that I miss the characters once I turn the last page. These are 2 YA books that are on my “imminent future” TBR .. both have 5 ⭐️ ratings on @goodreads and both have come highly recommended from the #bookstagram family .. so which should I read first?

"Fear of Missing Out" by Kate McGovern tells the story of Astrid who after battling cancer once finds out it returned again after going in to remission. With the help of her friend Chloe and her boyfriend Mohit, she decides between two options: letting the cancer take its course or freezing her body in a new scientific treatment in the hopes of being awaken in the future.
*
This book explores hard subjects, the biggest being the right to decide how you're going to die, especially if you're a teenager. Astrid's mother wants to get her into more chemo and medicine trials, but Astrid wants to choose for herself.
*
Books on cancer are always emotional to read about, especially if anyone next to you has been affected by it, and this book is no different. It will have comparisons to "Fault in Our Stars" and that's just, both being really good books about the end of life.
*
Books like this explore the thin line between what we must do for our own self-peace and other's expectations. The author shows great understanding of the debate and the hardship of letting go. No choice is easy.
*
What I've learned is that death is never really the end, no matter what we believe. It's a place in life where things have to be done faster: the chances to say all the "I love yous" you've held close, to forgive and be forgiven, to say what there is left to say. Both sides are heading into an unknown. Both knowing that a life worth living is one where everything is out in the open, instead of hidden away - all our questions, all of our heartbreaks, all of our hopes and dreams. Because all of our decisions are going to have an affect no matter what - we might as well live it on our own terms. That, truly, is what this book is about.
*
To say goodbye is never really to say goodbye. A sad book, but meaningful, that by its ending will have you in tears. Good reading and well written.
*
Released March 19th from @fsgbooks.

✨Book Review✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Bride Test ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Helen Hoang has done it again. I love her characters. It’s so refreshing to read books that include culture, diversity and awareness. Khai (who has autism) and Esme were characters you wanted to know and root for. Khai’s autism makes it hard for him to show emotion in a way that society understands. We, the readers get to know Khai and see that he does in fact have feelings even if he himself doesn’t believe that he does. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Helen Hoang also wrote The Kiss Quotient (TKQ). The Bride is less steamy than TKQ, but it’s just as sweet. Somehow Hoang was able to take the subject of a mail order bride and make it relatable and conjures empathy in the reader. She did the same thing with in TKQ with the male escort storyline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Khai’s mom is bossy and his brother is a little manipulative, but they were doing what they felt was best and the truly wanted the best for Khai. I highly recommend this book to romance readers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

✨Book Review✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Bride Test ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Helen Hoang has done it again. I love her characters. It’s so refreshing to read books that include culture, diversity and awareness. Khai (who has autism) and Esme were characters you wanted to know and root for. Khai’s autism makes it hard for him to show emotion in a way that society understands. We, the readers get to know Khai and see that he does in fact have feelings even if he himself doesn’t believe that he does. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Helen Hoang also wrote The Kiss Quotient (TKQ). The Bride is less steamy than TKQ, but it’s just as sweet. Somehow Hoang was able to take the subject of a mail order bride and make it relatable and conjures empathy in the reader. She did the same thing with in TKQ with the male escort storyline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Khai’s mom is bossy and his brother is a little manipulative, but they were doing what they felt was best and the truly wanted the best for Khai. I highly recommend this book to romance readers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ —————————————————————— #quitasbooked #thebridetest #bookcommunity #bookobsessed #bookstagram #booklove #thereaderslounge #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookishlife #bookworm #bookishlove #instabook #booksharks #bookishfeatures #lovebooks #bookinsta #bookphoto #read #reading #bookishescape #fortheloveofreading #bookpeoplearethebestpeople #bookaholic #bookisheacape #readingismylife #igbookreview #bookreview #readthis #amreading ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - 40 minutes ago
