I adore Ayn Rand, her ideologies and her novels. This is the best. The stage set up for this novel (Russia), how the conditions were and what people had to go through are explained in the best way possible. Kira is a very strong character who holds on to her beliefs and never gives in. I liked Leo in the initial part of the novel but seeing him losing himself by the end of the story, I didn’t approve of him. On the other hand, Andrei is very remarkable. I could not stand it to read about his suicide. Irina and Sasha were the two other prominent characters for me in the novel. I noticed that Ayn Rand has very strong opinions, she is kind of rebellious and she shoves the truth into the reader’s face hard and fast. What amazes me is her thoughts about love. I literally cried reading the departure of Irina and Sasha to the Siberian prison. It broke my heart. Last but not least, one person fighting against a whole country and not giving in until the last breath is very heroic and the hero of We the Living, Kira lives in my heart forever. I personally have a wonderful imagination (I’m not bragging about it) but when I read the lines written by AR, I see myself watching the whole scene with my very own eyes. That is the best I can put into words about how much I love her narration. Ayn Rand is a true legend! Her characters are very distinct, not like any regular hero, heroine.. even the villain is so remarkable, that you will fall in love with him.

I must say, this is the best play I read in my life. Bjorn Faulkner, Karen Andre and Lawrence Regan took my breath away. It is a play that takes place in a courtroom. It is not a huge story with too many incidents but a small one that leaves the whole scenario to the reader’s imagination. I’m impressed with Faulkner and Regan. Ayn Rand as always knows exactly what kind of men are needed in today’s world. They both were fearless, they get what they want, they rule the world and when it comes to love, they give everything. Karen’s love and devotion for Faulkner are beyond words. Regan is a gangster by profession but also knows how to respect love when he sees it. I’m always amazed at the kind of main male characters that Ayn Rand designs in her books. I wonder if such men do really exist in today’s world. Men who fear nothing, who have sky-high goals, who work for what they want, who refuse to bow to anyone, who crush the rules set by the so-called society and men who love beyond any kind of scale that is ever built in this world. Hats-off to Ayn Rand! She is the hero.

Falling for You by Becky Wade is a cute love story that also brings a hidden mystery. Willow, a successful model and Corbin, a famous NFL player who were once in love and broke up meet again through Charlotte who is determined to find her missing great-aunt from nearly 40 years. Willow and Corbin while helping Charlotte fall for each other all over again. Nora and Britt, Willow’s sisters, are super cool. Joe, Corbin’s father, is a completely another story. This is a story about love, guilt, heartbreak, misunderstandings, forgiving and rebuilding relationships. It is very well written. Almost all the characters are very strong – from the 12-year old Charlotte to 60-year old Josephine, everyone is determined. The story taught me to forgive and let go rather than holding on to past and hatred. The pace is perfect. I could not put it down till I read the last page. The people of Merryweather are amazing. The love for each other, the family bonding, and the support they show for their loved ones in the times of trial is narrated very well by the author. The characters brought warmth to my heart and I enjoyed the book thoroughly.
All in all, love, patience, forgiving always bring the fruit in the right time.
Thank you Bethany House for sending me the ebook review copy.

The Coffin Maker by Breeann Allison is alluring. First of all, the title is interesting and found it apt after I finished reading the book. The small town Gregor’s Hallow is just like a dream town I would wanna live. It’s quiet, away from fuss and Halloween celebrations in this town are just amazing. The way the author connected all the dots is very nice. Jesse Burns who had to take over his father’s coffin making business upon his disappearance, Death personified, the Gregorians, Robin, mysterious events at the time of Halloween, plague, Randall/Timothy and last but not the least coffins. The twist in this books is unexpected. I like how the author managed to share her views about universe, balance, life, death and the life in between. Personally, I enjoyed how coffins that carry a corpse are used to save lives. The pace is good and I enjoyed the book. If I didn’t have a preplanned travel in between, I wouldn’t have put this book down before I finished it in just 2-3 days.
