Perfect for book lovers or casual readers.
I usually never write reviews, but my life as a reader was totally changed after finding this app. I love books and always have, but life keeps you busy and you end up putting things aside. Well, this app has helped me find so many books I NEED to read, and it has helped me rediscover my love for reading! I really can’t think of anything to improve. I love the layout. I love the ability to make “shelves” to save books. It even lets you track the progress of books you’re reading. You can read your friends reviews or any reviews in general. I also love that they have a vote at the end of the year (or beginning, I can’t remember) for best books in SEVERAL genres and also have best of the best and whatnot. Browsing books by categories is also great because it’s helping me find different kinds of books so my reading list can be more diverse. The only complaint I have (which actually isn’t a real complaint) is that every time I click on this app, I find a million more books I want to read and there’s no way I can read them all in my lifetime.
This Republic of Suffering
Drew Faust has uncovered an interesting perspective of the Civil War that I had really never thought about. That is, the war literally transformed how society, through individual experiences, dealt with the coming of the age of death on the far away battlefield or, in the case of thousands of civilians, near or around far away battlefields. The impersonal manner of modern warfare transformed the deeply imbedded ‘good death’ to an almost anonymous event leaving families to scramble to locate, rationalize and personalize the dead individual’s transition to the other side. The very subject is one often overlooked in the history of warfare. The well researched and documented analysis of the death experience by the relatives of the dead party is remarkable. Faust takes a deeply personal approach to the events, offering excellent reference material, including personal letters, to attempt to explain the dramatic impact of the tragic events. While war is to some a noble atrocity, the individual impact of losing a family member who simply disappears (sometimes literally) without the heretofore soul saving ‘good death’ in the presence of someone who could attest to the persons repentance or expression of acceptance was a significant step for a deeply religious, if not dogmatic, society. It is a very, very good, if not excellent, read. More like 4.5+ stars. But be ready to get a little depressed.
Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here!
As usual, a new Julia Kent book came out and I dropped everything, even the book I was in the middle of! That's what you do when Julia publishes a new book because you know no one writes funny like she does. In that, "Shopping for the CEO's Baby" certainly didn't disappoint.
On the surface, it's hard to imagine Amanda & Andrew McCormick finding their way to love at all since Amanda is all heart while Andrew appears to be all blind ambition. The facts, as in real life, are more complicated than that. Watching them grow individually and together, personally and professionally, since the beginning of this series, it's clear they are perfectly developed characters who are perfect for each other.
In this book, Amanda, the problem-solver, can't "fix" her way through a pregnancy with twins while overprotective Andrew can't delegate his way to easing his wife's pregnancy complications. Not they don't both try to do just that, with typically humorous results. Throw in an orange food only tolerance, lots of hot sex, the life-long competition between billionaire/"almost" billionaire brothers, the unexpected reemergence of a long-lost relative with all the quirks of the regular cast of characters and you have a satisfyingly funny addition to the "Shopping" series.
