A very unique bunch of poems that I’ve ever read. Sweet, short and about child birth from different authors. Various stages of birth, some about the fetal kicking, some about the loss of life in the womb, some amazing moments experienced by mothers, mid-wives and doctors.
Absolutely loved Catching Babies : Haiku.
The book is releasing on June 14, 2022.
The Bookseller of Dachau by Shari J. Ryan is one of the most interesting story I’ve read in the recent time.
The story is set between two different times and places completely opposite. I’ve always been a fan of historical fiction but the switch between the contemporary and history is written so well by the author that the transition is so smooth. I so want to visit the small town of Dachau at least once. I can only imagine how that town survived amidst that huge war and atrocities.
I liked both Matilda and Grace very much. They are very influencing characters with great determination, patience and love. The love between Hans and Matilda is so special. I was so anxious myself reading the letters from Matilda and was so eager to know what happened to Hans.
The title is so apt for this book. I personally loved the way the author built a love story amidst the war set up. A great read for any age group.
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.

It’s Complicated is the first book from the series of Undeniable by Nikki Prince. The book was enjoyable. This is a story about friends who decide to go for a No Strings Attached relationship but end up falling head over heels in love with each other. Ashton, Keiko, Emmie, Royce, Aine, Darian, and Perry are very close friends from college days. Perry dies of cancer suddenly. Perry has always wanted Keiko to take her attraction for Ashton to next level but she never dared to pursue it further for the fear of ruining the friendship. After Perry is gone, Keiko decides that life is too short to live beating around the bush. She talks to her friends Emmie and Aine, and advises them as well to think about their interest in Royce and Darian, respectively. When Keiko talks about her attraction and her plan to seek a friends with benefits relationship, Ashton couldn’t say no since he is very much attracted to Keiko from the beginning. The relationship starts smoothly, they share a great chemistry and everything is fine. Just then, a jealous ex of Ashton comes along threatening Keiko to stay away from Ashton. In the meantime, Ashton and Keiko fall in love with each other deeply and decide to take it further. Though they face trouble from Ashton’s ex and her partner, they deal with it with the help of their friends and the story ends well when Ashton asks Keiko to marry him.
The story is very straight with no fuss. Its a cute love story of best friends. The friendship, love and jealousy are very well narrated by the author. There are few steamy scenes between Ashton and Keiko, which will leave you all hot and bothered. I had fun reading this book. I totally look forward to reading the next book from the Undeniable series.

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.
