|Book Review: The Other People|

45706883

Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl’s face appear in the rear window. She mouths one word: ‘Daddy.’ It’s his five-year-old daughter, Izzy.

He never sees her again.

Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights travelling up and down the motorway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe that Izzy is dead.

Fran and her daughter, Alice, also put in a lot of miles on the motorway. Not searching. But running. Trying to keep one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them. Because Fran knows the truth. She knows what really happened to Gabe’s daughter.

Then, the car that Gabe saw driving away that night is found, in a lake, with a body inside and Gabe is forced to confront events, not just from the night his daughter disappeared, but from far deeper in his past.

His search leads him to a group called The Other People.

If you have lost a loved one, The Other People want to help. Because they know what loss is like. They know what pain is like. They know what death is like.

There’s just one problem . . . they want other people to know it too.


I gave this book a four out of five stars. I read most of this book in less than 24 hours. I guess wrong on who Fran was related to. I would have enjoyed it if it happened to be my guess. I guess correctly about a plot point to do with the Samariten. I really enjoy the whole book. I liked the different P.O.V.’s. I plan on getting myself a finished copy and plan on recommending it to others. I’m going to work on reading others works by the author. If this sounds like your cup of tea, you should definitely pick yourself up a copy and read it.

|Book Review: The Body by Stephen King|

38926465._sy475_

It’s 1960 in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. Ray Brower, a boy from a nearby town, has disappeared, and twelve-year-old Gordie Lachance and his three friends set out on a quest to find his body along the railroad tracks. During the course of their journey, Gordie, Chris Chambers, Teddy Duchamp, and Vern Tessio come to terms with death and the harsh truths of growing up in a small factory town that doesn’t offer much in the way of a future.

The Body by Stephen King. I gave this book a three out of five stars, I really enjoyed it. I liked how there mention of things from other books by him. I liked how it went from past to present and went into other stories as well. I like the writing aspect in the book. This is novella from the short story collection title Different Seasons.

If there’s anything Kala knows, it’s monsters.
Witchcraft and Monsters is a debut poetry collection by Kala Godin.

Kala understands that the human body can be its own kind of monster. She knows the way strangers both see her and don’t.
There is magic in everything we do.
And there are monsters in each of us.

This collection is broken into five parts.
Witchcraft.
Fairytales.
Bodies.
Bad ideas.
Endings.


Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a review copy.

I gave this a four out of five stars. I really enjoyed the authors writing it was so beautiful. Her poetry is unique and amazing, totally magical. I’m going to end up buying myself a physical copy. You should totally check it out! I loved her writing so much I highlighted some of my favorite lines.

Here are a few of my favorite lines:

“I don’t know love in small doses. I know how to spill my entire being out. I know how to love completely.”

“I am too much of myself for them, But never enough, Of what they want,”

“I am waiting, For my throne of bone, Blood, and ash.”

“She doesn’t want to be saved. Doesn’t want to be the damsel. of the Fiance. So she’ll teach herself how to a tsunami instead.”
