IMWAYR- 31/10/2016

Hey Guys! It's time for another reading update! This week wasn't a very busy week, but I somehow managed to neglect my reading. I was really looking forward to a book that refused to cooperate with me.
 I wanted to read the Survivor's Guide To Family Hapiness by . This isn't a self-help book, but a fiction novel about a broken family. For some reason though, it just refused to download on the Kindle!
 I'm currently reading Life Without Summer by Lynne Griffin, and I'm really enjoying it so far. I don't think this classifies as Young Adult, so I'm going to categorize it as Adult Fiction. It's about a mother who loses a child and her therapist- but also about so much more.

I didn't finish any other books, but I dedicated my week to getting two reviews out, which I'm happy about, and working on some tweaks for the blog.

Happy Reading to all of you!!

The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

Publication Date: July 31st 2012
Genre: Realistic Fiction ( in a historical setting)
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5
Source: Own Copy

Hey everyone! I'm back with a book review. I was supposed to upload this one sometime last week, but I completely forgot about it...whoops! Anyway, today I'll be reviewing M.L. Stedman's "The Light Between Oceans".
 This book was the Goodreads' Choice Winner for 2012, so when my mom recommended it to me, I decided to give it a go. Admittedly, I was a little hesitant at first, because for some reason the story didn't sound very interesting to me at the time. Once I got into it though, I was really happy with my choice.  
 Tom Sherbourne served in the Australian/British forces in the first war, and after four years on the fronts, he's come back to serve in the lifeguard committe. He's sent to Janus Rock, a quiet island almost a day away from the coast. Not too long into the story, he marries Isabel, a bold, caring young girl from the nearby town.

Clarity lies within they say,
It's the fog of the cities,
That prohibits clarity

Clarity is not necessary,
Or so they convey.
For when the rulers decide,
Clarity walks away

Clarity is in peace of mind
Clarity comes from a prayer
Clarity is nothing they say,
But what the rulers have said

Clarity is in freedom,
Clarity is in choice
Clarity does not come only from one,
Clarity comes from life.

Night Road by Kristin Hannah

Publication Date: March 22nd 2011
Genre: Realistic Fiction, Grief
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5
Source: Own Copy

This novel was a recommendation by my mom, and I was surprisingly  interested in the story right from the beginning. I can't say that this book has been on my to-read list for a long time, but I simply can't understand why I didn't pick up this book earlier!
 Night Road by Kristin Hannah follows the story of a young teen who's been in the foster care system since she can remember. Alexa (or Lexi) has finally found her permanent home with her Great Aunt. Her social worker enrolls her in a prestigious high school, where she befriends Mia, an introvert who's twin brother is the school's most popular boy.

Feast or Starve

Feast your eyes,
Feast your heart
Feast your mind
On what could've been

Starve your bones
Starve your nerves
Starve your mind
On what has been given

Count the Stars

Count the stars 
That line the skies
Count the tears
That scar a face

You will find 
The numbers are the same
Count the stars

Count the stars 
That line the skies
Count the pieces of a game

You will find
The numbers are the same
Count the stars

Pacing is not her style
She strides,
She never struts

Murmuring is not her style
She announces,
She never shouts

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Publication Date: February 7th 2012
Genre: Post-apocalyptic, Dystopia, Young Adult
My Goodreads Rating: 2/5
Source: Borrowed

Hello Everyone! I'm back with another book review- I know it's been a very long time since I uploaded one. I recently finished reading Delirium, by Lauren Oliver. This is a book for fans of Divergent, Hunger Games, Matched or any other post-apocalyptic dystopian books about futuristic societies. I can't say I loved this book, but I didn't dislike it either.

With your soul

Hold me,
With your power
Release me,
With your control
Tear me,
In your rage
Piece me together,
With your soul

Maim me,
With your flame
Trap me,
In your spell
Frighten me,
With your noise
Comfort me,
With your soul

With your soul,
Apologize, for the terrors
Of your mind

With your soul,
Convey, your love
Of life

With your soul,
Let us know, 
You love us

With your soul
You shall grow
From the flower
To the tree

Pretence is no longer a game
Pretend if you must
Pretend if there is no option
Pretence can be useful

Pretend to have the joy
If it will spare someone's pain
Pretence won't harm you
Till the very end
Pretend to love it then
Pretence is no longer a game
