Book review: The Drowning

Well let me say this, this book left me puzzled. I don’t dislike this book but this book kept me on my toes. It was a page-turner but at times it was boring and just dragging on. So this book was about a young boy whose parents were going through a tough time. They decided to have him go camping so they can decide what to do about their marriage. The young boy Joey wasn’t happy about going to camp. He knew that his parents were dealing with something in their marriage. But at the camp, he befriended the counselor and he felt like things were changing. Until one day he had to go swimming in the lake. He didn’t know how to swim and the swim teacher wasn’t kind at all. His swim teacher Alex wasn’t a kind man. He wanted to make a point to Joey that he was going to swim. So he took him to the deep end and left him on a raft. Alex left Joey out there overnight. And the next morning he was gone. Years have passed and Alex is successful and Joey has come back to haunt him. Alex’s lack of care caused a lot of people harm. People died never knowing what happened to Joey. But who would want to drag the past to the future after 21 years? Well, it’s someone you would never guess.

Book review: The Date

This book was more than I could ask for. When I tell you this book is worth reading. Im usually good at solving mystery. But this book I could not figure out. So this book is about a woman who went through a lot through in her childhood. She’s now married and going through a separation with her husband. One harmless date night turns deadly. But who would want to hurt Ali? And why are they going through so much trouble to make her life hell??? This is a great read.

Book review: The Gifts of Imperfection

This year I’m making it about me and my growth. So I wanted to more books that will help me with my development and growth. So I decided to read this book. I must say that I was shocked that I’m not the only one who feels like I’m supposed to be a certain way. It’s okay to be authentically yourself. I love that each chapter is a way for you to grow and question what can you be doing better. Or as she puts it dig deep. I don’t see this book so much as a self-help book than I do a book that makes you think on a deeper level. I have learned some amazing lessons from this book that I have already put into practice. You only have one life why not live it to its fullest. Stop worrying about what others think and say. Make your life the best life. I’m going to dance like no one is watching. I’m going to cultivate more joy in my life. I’m choosing to live and love with my whole heart. This is a new year and a new me.

Book review: The Gift

So this is the first book that I have read of Danielle Steel. I had heard a lot of good things about her books so I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Let me just tell you that this book had me in tears. I know what it’s like to be a high school student that gets pregnant. But never was I treated like this. Okay so let me tell you about the book. It’s about a couple who struggled to have children. The mother finally has a son and then ten years later has a daughter. Their daughter ends up dying when she was just five years old. This took a toll on the family. A sixteen-year-old girl goes to a dance with a boy she doesn’t even like. He ends up getting drunk and she ends up alone outside the dance thinking about walking home. Until the popular boy comes outside to talk to her. They end up hanging out and then instead of taking her home they go somewhere to chill. Well, one thing leads to another and she ends up pregnant. All of her hopes and dreams go out the window of going to college and having a career. Her brother ends up telling her dad and off she is shipped to a nun convent. She hates it there and ends up leaving the convent heading to Chicago. The bus makes a stop and she eats at this dinner and when she goes to leave she sees a help wanted sign up. She asked the waitress who helped her about the job. She ends up getting and job and much more than she bargains for. When life and death meet up not only does her whole world change but the family who lost their daughter’s world changes.

Book review: A Promised Land

I’m finally done with this book. I have been reading this book since June. The book is really good until you get to all the political stuff. If you love politics then this book is for you. He goes into a lot of details about things happening in the white house while he was there. Some of it was really interesting other parts were so boring that it took me so long to read this book. Besides all the many pages of blah blah blah politics. This book was really good. I never knew all that a president does on a day-to-day basis. And all that they go through to make it to be president. Good book but there are chapters that are very slow read.
