“But love has to be stronger than hate, or there is no future for us.”  ― Kristin Hannah, The Nightingale

Even If I kept talking about this book forever , It won’t be enough . Kristin Hannah writing style is one of the best , Her way of expressing the emotions of her brilliant characters is just out of this world , her descriptions are lush , visual and completely mesmerizing .

Our Story talks about two sisters ( Vianne and Isabelle ) and their stories during the Second  world war in France .

Here is the Blurb :

France, 1939

In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France…but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When France is overrun, Vianne is forced to take an enemy into her house, and suddenly her every move is watched; her life and her child’s life is at constant risk. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates around her, she must make one terrible choice after another. 

Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets the compelling and mysterious Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can…completely. When he betrays her, Isabelle races headlong into danger and joins the Resistance, never looking back or giving a thought to the real–and deadly–consequences.

Highly Recommended , Seriously guys ! You have to read this book.

“Wounds heal. Love lasts. We remain.”  ― Kristin Hannah, The Nightingale


The Second Book I have For you today is A man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

A man Called Ove By Fredrik Backman
A full Review Of this Brilliant Book On My Blog .

“We always think there’s enough time to do things with other people. Time to say things to them. And then something happens and then we stand there holding on to words like ‘if’.”  ― Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

In this Masterpiece , You will Read about everything , Sweet , lovely and Unexpected relationship , Beautiful friendships and heartbreaking reality .

This Book was really different , unique and so special to my heart .

Read it Please , And yeah Watch the movie It’s outstanding 😉 .

Blurb : 

A grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.

Meet Ove.

He’s a curmudgeon, the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him the bitter neighbor from hell, but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.


Prepare your heart to be more broken After Reading Eleanor And Park By Rainbow Rowell 

17322949“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”  ― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

Rowell Is one Of my all time Favorite authors , her writing style is griping , visual , emotional and just Awesome .

Her characters are complicated , realistic , funny , and relatable .

I loved Eleanor and Park with all of my heart , Yeah , their story was devastating , but it was beautiful , all about the wonders of First Love .

“You can be Han Solo,” he said, kissing her throat. “And I’ll be Boba Fett. I’ll cross the sky for you.”  ― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

Blurb : 

Eleanor is the new girl in town, and with her chaotic family life, her mismatched clothes and unruly red hair, she couldn’t stick out more if she tried. Park is the boy at the back of the bus. Black T-shirts, headphones, head in a book – he thinks he’s made himself invisible. But not to Eleanor… never to Eleanor. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall for each other. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you’re young, and you feel as if you have nothing and everything to lose.


The Last book For today , is one I  cried So hard after reading it , I just couldn’t stop , It was so devastating yet so great … All the Bright Places By Jennifer Niven 

18460392“The thing I realize is, that it’s not what you take, it’s what you leave.”  ― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places

A story about Mental Illness , Dealing with Grief , Guilt and love .

Theodore Finch Is one of the best written Character I’ve ever read about , his complicated , different , funny , philosophical and beautiful character broke my heart .

Jennifer Niven gift with Writing is Obvious in this book and her other novel ( Holding Up the Universe ) You should Absolutely read this book .

Blurb : 

Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.   Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.   When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
