We are sick again! Yes I can't believe it either but I can cry or move on so I'm choosing moving on. We have a big cold mixed with Alex's reflux so we aren't sleeping.
The bad thing is I haven't worked in my book as much as I wanted but the good news are that I read two great books!
I can't believe that I found two perfect but different books in the same week.
Ok I will tell you which books are so special for me:
Tessa doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But there's something weird about the dusty unicorn tapestry she discovers in a box of old books. She finds the creature woven within it compelling and frightening. After the tapestry comes into her possession, Tessa experiences dreams of the past and scenes from a brutal hunt that she herself participated in. When she accidentally pulls a thread from the tapestry, Tessa releases a terrible centuries old secret. She also meets William de Chaucy, an irresistible 16th-century nobleman. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together, they must correct the wrongs of the past. But then the Fates step in, making a tangled mess of Tessa's life. Now everyone she loves will be destroyed unless Tessa does their bidding and defeats a cruel and crafty ancient enemy.
My opinion: It's a great story, using elements I haven't read lately in fantasy. It has a sweet romance and a great adventure. For me this is the perfect mix! Tessa is a great and strong character although sometimes stubborn you can relate to her. I will definitely read it again.
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.My opinion: A great dystopian , I usually don't like them but this one was great. Making me live everything of this world, fiding myself what would I do in Tris situation. I loved Tris her way of thinking, loving, living! And in this book I found a new favorite male character "Four". They have a intense and for me beautiful romance with a lot of connection. I am dying to read the next book.
Ok now I will go back to the couch to rest while the kids let me with a box of tissues behind me.
I just wanted to say I miss you all and I hope life can let me be more here soon.
Have a great day!
