Library, Books and Nature

Yesterday I went to the Library to pick up The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (I want to read it for Halloween’s Day) and I saw that one tree that’s outside the Library had just changed it color and it looked beautiful.

Here’s a picture:

While I was in the Library of course I visited its Bookstore, after looking on the shelves I chose two books: As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner (Movie will be released soon) and Elizabeth I by Margaret George (I love reading about that Era).

I have tons of books but I can’t help keep buying. I just love books!

Book Review: Tangled by Emma Chase

Lines Tangled

Book Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion-dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. 

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful, and ambitious. She refuses to let anything-or anyone-derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, and his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating. Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life? Can Drew Evans win at love? 

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing in life he never wanted is the only thing he can’t live without.

My Review:

Drew Evans is a successful businessman, a charming and non-strings attached guy who is used to have his way, but then this “golden boy” meets his match in the form of Kate Brooks and with that, everything he has known and believed starts to change.

I was totally hooked since page one and it was impossible to put down this book, the reason?  The story is funny, romantic and truly engaging.

I loved the characters, Drew and Kate are interesting and likeable and there’s also some support characters that I enjoyed reading about, like Alexandra (Drew’s sister) and Drew’s sweet and witty niece, Mackenzie.

My favorite thing about this book is the way is written. I loved the narrative from Drew’s POV and being inside his head provided a lot of entertaining and hilarious moments.

The writing style is like if this character is talking to you, sharing what happened to him, this made me feel even more engaged to the story.

I mentioned on past reviews how much I love male POVs in the Books, but Drew’s POV is the best I’ve read and now, he’s one of my favorite male characters.

My rating:   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Do I recommend this book? Absolutely.

Will I read more books from this author? Definitely.

How some Music in the Local Library helped me feel close to my late Grandfather.

My grandfather was an amazing person and I loved him very much, unfortunately he passed away years ago while I was in College.

He loved Classical Music and Opera (just like I do) and had a great collection of vinyl records, also, the best memories I have from him are associated with music.

Yesterday I visited the Local Library to pick up a book and to take a look at the books in the Store.

When I was leaving I heard a piano and singing (what seemed to be Opera or something similar), at the beginning I thought it was a recording but, after walking a few steps, I saw that it was a woman inside a meeting room.

I sat in a bench in the hallway and during some minutes I listened to her singing and playing the piano, the music and her voice were beautiful and I got caught in the moment.

I thought about my grandfather and how much he loved music, I thought about the moments I spent with him and how much I miss him; while I was sitting in that bench I felt him close to me and for that I’m grateful.

The Local Library has always been one of my favorite places and after this last experience I love it even more.
