And relax. Small great things by Jodi Picoult is my read for 2017 and I've just discovered it's soon to be a major film with Viola Davis and Julia Roberts 💚About the book When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not. Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us. #berkshirebookfairy#whatimreading#smallgreatthings#jodipicoult#juliaroberts#violadavis

Happy start of the week everyone!!! I hope you have an amazing one, I know mine will be hectic AF 😅
I have two exams, three essays and practical cases due this week. I won’t have a second of free time 😭
Yesterday I took a wee bit of time to read and finally got to me favorite scene from outlander 🙌🏽 and I loved it 💛
When I became a mom I kinda gave up on reading. I have made it through 5 books since Ezra was born. I would spend any free time I got staring at my son, cleaning the house, and working on HBC Organics. If my pregnancy with Bronn & this last year has taught me anything, it's that I need to use some free or quiet time for me, doing things I enjoy. One of those things is reading 😍 I've always loved reading! Now that I've finally set business hours & put that boundary up, I think I'll be able to unwind a little better 😀 But for now, I saw this book at the store today on sale, let's see how it is!
Happy Sunday!! 🍁🍂☀️ I am so delighted to have gained so many new followers this weekend. I am wondering what my new and old followers are interested in seeing on this #bookstagram . Would you like to see book reviews? Featured local bookstores? My recommendations? Additionally, I've been thinking about starting a blogspot for reviews/recommendations/etc.
Comment below and tell me what content you would like to see and how you want to connect!👇🏻
My sister's keeper is one of the most tragic books I've read so far. No matter how emotionally strong you are, this book is bound to leave you in tears. It's all about life, death and all the important choices and sacrifices we have to make in our lives, for our family; our loved ones. Also, it raises moral and ethical debate about stem cell research and medical emancipation.
I always love books that have the ability to touch you on a deeper level, you cry when the character cries, you laugh when the character laughs and a part of you die when a character dies. This is one of those books.
Beli di BBW Jakarta beberapa bulan lalu, tapi baru selesai dibaca kemarin 🙈🙈.
Tenth circle menceritakan Trixie, cewek 14 tahun yang mengatakan telah diperkosa oleh (mantan) pacarnya. Sedangkan si pacar yang merupakan bintang hockey dan anak baik-baik di mata seluruh kota, mengatakan 'tidak'.
It's her words against his. Who's lying?
Ini buku ke-3 Jodi Picoult yang saya baca, and this is my least favourit. I love House Rules and amazed by her way to make reader guessing... and the plot twist 👍👍👍.
Meski permasalahan buku ini mengenai rape case-nya Trixie, sebenarnya tokoh utama buku ini adalah Daniel, the stay home dad yang bekerja sebagai ilustrator freelance. Sejak kalimat pertama, Mbak Picoult pun menunjukkan kalau si Daniel ini amat sangat sayang sama anak tunggalnya itu. .
I like 2/3 of the book. Yang bikin buku barat (termasuk ini) itu bagus (dan juga nyebelin), adalah deskripsi backstory tiap tokoh yang sangat kuat (yang kadang terasa terlalu panjang). Karakter dan background storynya terasa sangat detail dan nyata. Saya tahu masa lalu Daniel (si ayah), saya tahu cara berpikirnya, ketakutannya, masalah pribadinya dengan istri dan anaknya. Terasa begitu nyata, seakan mereka adalah tetangga saya yang sedang saya intip kehidupannya.
Beberapa kali saya terpesona, sampai nggak bisa berhenti membaca dengan alurnya yang nggak saya sangka. Sayang, bab-bab terakhir dan penyelesaiannya membuat saya males melanjutkan. Anti-klimaks. Nggak bikin puas, tapi juga nggak kecewa, karena cukup realistis dan masuk logika.
For this book, I can only give 3 🌟🌟🌟
Ada yang pernah baca karya Jodi Picoult? Can you recommend me another title?
Nach Stephen Kings Es - jetzt erstmal was ganz anderes und vor allen kürzer😊. Lese jetzt Jodi Picoult - Bis ans Ende der Geschichte als eBook on my Tolino Verlag Bertelsmann.
Wünsche allen ein schönen Sonntag😄🙋
The Good Teacher by PJ Kelly launches TODAY!
Jessica Bell was a kind and well-respected teacher. A strong and motivated woman, she only wanted the best for her students. Her own history of damage and pain had her believing that running away was the solution they had all been searching for.
And so ensued a battle between right and wrong, good and evil, and common sense and the law.
Miss Bell was not a bad woman. She was a good teacher.
This is her story.
