I’m a pretty avid reader and have a book addiction. Once I get emails with book sales from Indigo (Canadian bookstore) I can’t control myself and always end up ordering a few books. Here are some short reviews of some of the books I enjoyed most this Spring!
This is a great read I purchased after seeing it in Cosmo’s list of books of the months. It’s the story of two pen pals living world’s apart who become important parts of each other’s lives. It’s also a story about struggle and true friendship!
Caitlin is an American girl who gets a pen pal at school, his name is Martin and he is from Zimbabwe. We follow her journey as she learns about Martin’s struggles as he lives in an extremely poor region of the world. Caitlin because a true saviour to him and his family and their friendship is a journey we can all be inspired by!
I loved this book from page 1, I read most of it while we were on a fishing weekend and just wouldn’t put the book down. It’s a great proof of the power of friendship and it makes us North Americans realize the luck we have, having some things we take for granted. Don’t hesitate to pick this one up!
This book was an unexpected buy. Laura Dave has a new book out Eight Hundred Grapes, which I wanted to buy but this one was on sale, so I chose it. I really enjoyed Dave’s writing and definitely recommend it.
Annie Adams has been in a relationship for a few years when her boyfriend announces to her he needs some space and a break from their relationship. In the days that follow Annie goes out and gets out of her comfort zone to meet Griffith. One things leads to another and she ends up marrying someone she barely knows. She experiences the struggles of leading a new life and shares them with us for our entertainment.
Get it for the beach and enjoy the fullness of the characters and the sneak peak into what looks like a realistic life!
This is a must for everyone that enjoys Mindy’s sense of humour.
Mindy shares her thoughts, lists and stories from the past in a quirky and relatable matter.
If you are a fan of the Mindy Project: you will love this! It’s a light read that’s perfect on the way to work, if you’re reading a chapter at a time. It isn’t quite as captivating as other books, but the style and flow make for a great read.
That’s it for me! What were your favourite reads of the Spring?
