Brenda’s Book Club: Paper Towns

Hello again,

This week on my reading adventure I finished up Paper Towns by John Green.

PAPERTOWNS.001

 

I adore John Green as an author. He knows how to capture teen thoughts about life and love in such a sweet and romantic way. I loved reading The Fault in Our Stars and found the film magnificent as well. So I was extremely excited to read this next one.

Paper Towns is a sweet love story between a boy who falls in love with his adventurous neighbor. After his neighbor goes missing mysteriously, he takes it upon himself to find her.

It’s a tale of friendship, life, love and finding yourself. The writing style of John Green allows you to get inside the mind of the narrator and feel what they are feeling. This book was an adventure to read and I honestly couldn’t put it down.

I didn’t necessarily like the end of the story, but I did enjoy reading it! What do you all think of John Green? Have you read this one?

Next book: The Circle by Dave Eggers

Talk to you soon,

Book Review: Comfort & Joy by Kristin Hannah

Hello lovelies!

Please forgive me for my week-long departure from blogging…I just wanted to give you something other than another beauty post. Which leads me to books! I am a book fanatic, and am usually reading at least two books at a time.

My current author obsession has been Kristin Hannah. Her books are incredible love stories focusing not only on one storyline, but on several, merging them together ideally. Her characters are well-written, lovable, charismatic, and quite realistic. Her stories focus around love, not just romantic but also love between sisters, friends, mothers and daughters, and more.

Sometimes a girl just needs a love story, a cup of tea, and a snuggly blanket. Which is exactly what I did this winter. Here are some of the Kristin Hannah books I read (and recommend):

All that being said and with the winter season coming to a close, I thought I would share my thoughts on my favorite winter read- Comfort & Joy.

Comfort & Joy is a short read, truly capitalizing on the saying “good things come in small packages.” I cozied up with this book and simply could not put it down. Starting out a bit rocky, I really fell in love with this book. The main character finds herself through a series of troubling events with life-like and vibrant narration. As I don’t want to ruin the storyline I won’t delve in too much. But I highly recommend this book. Check it out, purchase it, or borrow it, this book is worth a read!

Also….can we all just take a moment to look at how cute this mug is?!

Have any of you read Comfort & Joy? Any other book recommendations for me! I’m always in search of another read!
