Twelve-year-old Simon Thorn´s life has never been easy or normal, but things like, being bullied at school and living in a cramped Manhattan apartment with his Uncle Darryl are nothing compared to his biggest secret. He can talk to animals. But when his mom is suddenly kidnapped by a herd of rats, Simon finds out that he, his mom, and his uncle are all Animalgams-people born with the ability to change into an animal at will. In search of his mom, Simon discovers the Animalgam Academy based at the Central Park Zoo. There he learns about the fractured five kingdoms – Mammals, Birds, Insects, Reptiles, and Underwater – that make up this secret world … and realizes he may be the only one who can save it.

Thoughts

One of the very few books I call an overnight read. Filled with action, a great story, emotions and the great setting of New York.

As much as I am fascinated by the gorgeous cover, I am not much fascinated by the story behind it. What in the world was that?!

Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts

Saturday, July 13, 2019
I LOVE Nora Roberts. She is the Queen of Romance and reading her books is one heck of a pleasure. Sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less. This one is definitely the a-bit-more category. Whiskey Beach was a pure reading pleasure.

For more than three hundred years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore – and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it´s home. A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigation after being accused of – but never arrested for - the murder of his soon-to-be ex-wife. He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though. Whiskey Beach´s resident housekeeper, yoga instructor, jewelry maker, and massage therapist, Abra is a woman of many talents – including helping Eli take control of his life and clear his name. But as they become entangled in each other, they find themselves caught in a net that stretches back for centuries – one that has ensnared a man intent on reaping the rewards of destroying Eli Landon once and for all.

It started with the gorgeous cover design.

2019 Library Love Challenge Mid-Year Update

Thursday, July 04, 2019
I had to link up a review for a book from the library at Angel´s Guilty Pleasures when I stumbled across her mid-year post which reminded me that I should post one too. How time flies!

My goal for this challenge was to achieve at least the Dewey Decimal. Meaning that I must lend and read twelve books from my library. But I guess that I will go beyond that since I´ve spent more time at the library lately than I thought I would this year.

To see how many books I´ve read for this challenge to date, keep reading *smile*

The Chosen by Kristina Ohlsson

Tuesday, July 02, 2019
I don´t know what made me take this book home with me. The cover for sure was not the reason. And at home, I discovered after reading a few pages, that I was somehow familiar with it. And still, there were things to discover.

Just a few hours later two Jewish boys go missing on their way to tennis practice. A heavy snowstorm hits Stockholm and the traces of the perpetrator are few and far between. Fredrika Bergman and Alex Recht are faced with one of their toughest challenges every as they hunt for a killer that seems as merciless and he is effective.

Thoughts

It was a bit odd to read this book. Maybe it was because some things seemed quite familiar while others were completely new to me.
