I love books. L O V E.
No matter how the world changes the art of telling stories, visual, spoken or written, has not and will not change.

I can jump from genre to genre and be happy as long as a story is well told. Now a days, my way of “reading” a book is by audio book. As a busy lady it’s the best way for me to still get in my book time while being able to accomplish other tasks as well.
On my blog that I love, I want to share books that I love. My only problem with books is finding great ones to read. I hate getting three chapters into a story to realize that I just cannot go any further. I especially hate that feeling if I have just spent 30 minutes finding that book.
I am a big fan of recommendations!
So on to the recommendations.
Book of the Month:
I really enjoyed this book. It makes you open your eyes to different life paths and choices that are given to us daily.
The author of A Fall of Marigolds journeys from the present day to World War II England, as two sisters are separated by the chaos of wartime …
She stood at a crossroads, half-aware that her choice would send her down a path from which there could be no turning back. But instead of two choices, she saw only one—because it was all she really wanted to see…
Other Great Recommendations:
I honestly can’t say that I liked this book. But I do believe that it holds a strong message. I did enjoy learning the different flower references. I will admit that at one point I flat out got angry at this book, angry. However, I don’t believe that literature has to spark happiness to make it great. A strong emotion and well written story is still a great piece of art.
The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what’s been missing in her life. And when she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.
Inspired by true events, the New York Times bestselling novel The Girl Who Came Home is the poignant story of a group of Irish emigrants aboard RMS Titanic—a seamless blend of fact and fiction that explores the tragedy’s impact and its lasting repercussions on survivors and their descendants.
