SUMMARY:
[Spoiler alert]
Twenties Girl is by far one of my favorite books to date. If I were to read this again, I would. The story takes place with Lara’s world crumbling before her: her boyfriend Josh stopped communicating her six weeks ago, her business partner and best friend left her to fend for herself while she’s out dallying somewhere with a beach hunk, and she couldn’t tell her parents her business partnership is a big bust, to make things worst Lara has to attend a funeral for a great aunt she never knew she had.

SUMMARY
[Warning – May Contain Spoilers]
Finding Audrey is a fairly new book by Sophie, its surprisingly in the narrative of a teenage girl named Audrey. Audrey is a teenage girl who is currently staying at home because she was bullied at her former school resulting in her lack of self-confidence and anxiety. We find this perky teen narrating her life in her household: an overprotective housewife of a mum, a businessman dad, a gamer (obsessed) brother and a little four-year-old brother. Her family is very supportive trying to nurture her needs (and dare I say why can’t most parents be supportive of our dreams and nurture us in times of our struggles?). Anyway, things are kinda hectic in her family and Audrey seems pretty chill, she visits her doctor who tries to help her recuperate by giving all these tasks, one of them being to interview and videotape everything that goes on in her household and strangers. The whole story is basically narrated by Audrey who embarks on a journey to recuperation one video at a time. She meets this guy Linus who is her brother’s good friend and a fellow gamer who tries to help her get out of her shell, we see a few ups and downs and we see her progress.

Book title: The Choice
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Genre: Fiction, Romance
Total read time: 9 Days
My Recommendation: Strongly Recommended
My Rating: ​8/10 (a 4 out of 5-star equivalent

 

SUMMARY:
[Spoiler Alert — Do not read unless you’ve already read the book]

 

For the first half (or part) of the book, the book follows narratives of the two main characters: Travis Parker and Gabby Holland. Gabby who recently moved into the neighborhood with her beautiful Collie (also the cover of the book) Molly finds herself immediately annoyed with a long-time resident veterinarian, Travis. The books begin with young Travis who loves adventures especially stories told by his father, which also hints on him secretly wanting a family of his own (or at least be a great father just like his father). The narrative then moves to the present where we are quite unsure what to expect as a man (Travis) is seemingly tired and troubled with a choice he has to make, or at least questioning his choices that led to the present events.
