All The Light We Cannot See

all the light you cannot see / anthony doerr

"open your eyes and see what you can with them before
they close forever."


Set in the backdrop of one of the world's deadliest war, All The Light We Cannot See holds so much promises in its synopsis alone, and I assure you that it won't disappoint. Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, this book showcases the struggles and hardships that WWII had caused to millions of people -- particularly, though, to Marie-Laure and Werner.

6 Summer Reading Habits

Comments

Ever since I graduated from junior high and took a 3-month summer vacation after school, I've come back to blogging a bit more often, loosening up slightly with the schedule and only posting whenever I feel like it. Along with that, I took my reading into a brand new level, reading books more often that I wouldn't normally read, exploring new genres and the like. I also opened up new beta reading services, which, I have to say, really helped me improve my analytical skills.

With 3 months having flown by, I am finally heading back to school on the 4th of August. This week will be my last full week of summer. Every time this realization hits me, I always turn to reading, which, in some way, changed as the summer goes by. Here are some of my brand new summer reading habits of 2016.

Tuesdays With Morrie

If Morrie were here, I'd give him a hug. While reading this book, it felt like it was him that I was talking to -- not the author. Morrie was a sweet, old man, and I was torn into pieces when I read about his deteriorating health in this book called Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom. I laughed, I cried, and I sympathized with everyone in this book. Albom's novel is so powerful; it touches every part of my heart.

it was impossible to say which was which."
