The Vow

Subtitled: The True Events That Inspired the Movie.
Nonfiction by Kim and Krickitt Carpenter.

The Vow: The True Events That Inspired the Movie

I didn't go see this movie because it looked lame. Also because my husband and I had a bit of a disagreement the last time we saw a Channing Tatum movie together. But that's neither here nor there.

But when I saw that it was based on a true story, I was interested in the real events, so I read the book. Which is good because apparently the movie doesn't follow the reality at all, except for the amnesia thing. (Ironically enough, the most unbelieveable part!)

The Vow: The True Events that Inspired the MovieNot bad.

Except I like this cover better.-->>-->>

(Call me a prude, but it's just classier.)

The Shoemaker's Wife

A family-saga-type of book set after the turn of the century. The 20th century, I mean.

Good book; awesome cover.

Young Adult Fiction by C.J. Hill.


Good book.

Except apparently it's the opener for a series and Book #2 isn't out yet. Grr.

The Survivor

Fiction by Gregg Hurwitz.

The Survivor

This book was cool.

The main character is out on a ledge, about to kill himself, when he witnessed a bank robbery in progress. Having given himself up for dead alreday, he fearlessly stops the robbers... and gets himself into big trouble.

Good beginning, right? So read the rest!

I recommend it.
