Hello everyone! Hope you all are doing well. Now that I`m on my holidays from college, I can read as many books as I like. So, today I decided to share my May reading list with you guys.
1. THE WEDDING BY NICHOLAS SPARKS:
To be honest, I have already read this book. I had ordered it online and it arrived a little early then I accepted. Anyway this book is the sequel of The Notebook. I love The Notebook, it is one of my favorite book. This one is kinda meh… Not bad, but not that good either. It is a good read if you need a little break from life and need to read a sweet romantic novel.
WILSON LEWIS HAS ALWAYS FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO EXPRESS HIS EMOTIONS. NOW, WITH HIS THIRTIETH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY APPROACHING, HE CONFRONTS THE FACT THAT HE AND HIS WIFE JANE HAVE GROWN APART… AND HE WONDERS IF SHE EVEN LOVES HIM ANY MORE.
2. ELEVEN MINUTES BY PAULO COELHO:
I`m reading this book and I have only reach the middle. It is a interesting book and I haven`t been able to put it down. It might give a perspective on certain things that we think differently about.
Eleven Minutes is the story of Maria, a young girl from a Brazilian village, whose first innocent brushes with love leave her heartbroken. At a tender age, she becomes convinced that she will never find true love, instead believing that “love is a terrible thing that will make you suffer. . . .” A chance meeting in Rio takes her to Geneva, where she dreams of finding fame and fortune. Maria’s despairing view of love is put to the test when she meets a handsome young painter. In this odyssey of self-discovery, Maria has to choose between pursuing a path of darkness—sexual pleasure for its own sake—or risking everything to find her own “inner light” and the possibility of sacred sex, sex in the context of love.
3. THE RESCUE BY NICHOLAS SPARKS:
I haven’t read this book so I can`t comment on it, so only going to share the story plot.
When confronted by raging fires or deadly accidents, volunteer fireman Taylor McAden feels compelled to take terrifying risks to save lives. But there is one leap of faith Taylor can’t bring himself to make: he can’t fall in love. For all his adult years, Taylor has sought out women who need to be rescued, women he leaves as soon as their crisis is over and the relationship starts to become truly intimate. When a raging storm hits his small Southern town, single mother Denise Holton’s car skids off the road. The young mom is with her four-year-old son Kyle, a boy with severe learning disabilities and for whom she has sacrificed everything. Taylor McAden finds her unconscious and bleeding, but does not find Kyle. When Denise wakes, the chilling truth becomes clear to both of them: Kyle is gone. During the search for Kyle, the connection between Taylor and Denise takes root. Taylor doesn’t know that this rescue will be different from all the others, demanding far more than raw physical courage. It will lead him to the possibility of his own rescue from a life lived without love and will require him to open doors to his past that were slammed shut by pain. This rescue will dare him to live life to the fullest by daring to love.
4. SALEM`S LOT BY STEPHEN KING:
Thousands of miles away from the small township of ‘Salem’s Lot, two terrified people, a man and a boy, still share the secrets of those clapboard houses and tree-lined streets. They must return to ‘Salem’s Lot for a final confrontation with the unspeakable evil that lives on in the town.
5. LONE EAGLE BY DANIELLE STEEL:
Danielle Steel’s fifty-first bestselling novel tells the story of an extraordinary man, the woman who loved him, and a bond so powerful it could never be broken. It is about finding the courage to let someone you love fly free….
The phone call came on a snowy December afternoon. Kate was certain it was Joe, the brilliant, visionary man who had been her soulmate, her driving force since the night they met, almost thirty-four years before. What she got was the one call she had never wanted, and didn’t expect.
