Just Updating ..... Nicholas Sparks

Miles Ryan's life seemed to end the day his wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident two years ago. As deputy sheriff of New Bern, North Carolina, he not only grieves for her and worries about their young son Jonah but longs to bring the unknown driver to justice. Then Miles meets Sarah Andrews, Jonah's second-grade teacher. A young woman recovering from a difficult divorce, Sarah moved to New Bern hoping to start over. Tentatively, Sarah and Miles reach out to each other...soon they are falling in love. But what neither realizes is that they are also bound together by a shocking secret, one that will force them to reexamine everything they believe in--including their love. In A Bend in the Road, Nicholas Sparks writes with a luminous intensity about life's bitter turns and incomparable sweetness. His affirming message carries a powerful lesson about the imperfections of being human, the mistakes we all make, and the joy that comes when we give ourselves to love. This was the first book that i've read from Sparks and I read it due to curiosity. I pick it up from the library and truly I'm not disapointed. Eventhough I don't usually read this kind of ficton I was surprised with myself to be following every line of the story and feeling sympathetic towards the main caracters. The plot and the twist of the story was well written and at some point, I trully felt the loss of a wife and how it is hard to be alone with a small child to raise. Sometimes fate does have it's tricks and it is up to us to take the correct direction towards our lives and move on.

Blood Bound (Unbound #1) Rachel Vincent

Blood Bound (Unbound, #1)

Finally got the opportunity to start reading Ms. Rachel Vincent, the truth is I forced myself to make the time, so now that I've started it I won't put it down.
I'll leave the blurb of the story and come back with updates.
As a bloodtracker, Liv is extremely powerful. And in a world where power is a commodity that can get you killed, Liv's learnt to survive by her own rules.

Rule number one? Trust no one.

But when a friend's daughter goes missing, Liv is bound by a potent magical oath. She can't rest until the child is safe.
And that means trusting her dangerous ex, Cam.

A sinister prophecy tells that she and Cam will be the death of each other, yet Liv's tired of being a slave to destiny. She's ready to play the forces controlling her world at their own game.

No matter what the cost.

The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Jane Marple, are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: 'A murder is announced and will take place on Friday October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m A childish practical joke? Or a hoax intended to scare poor Letitia Blacklock? Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at Little Paddocks at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out! A Murder Is Announced (Miss Marple, #5)A Murder Is Announced by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In the typical town of Chipping Cleghorn, a murder is announced by the “ Chipping Cleghorn Gazette “.
By 18.30pm, at 29th. October, in Little Paddocks, the murder game will take place and the town residents will attend this little gathering.
Here begins the story of a mystery murder solved by one of the most famous and sweet old ladies, Miss Marple.
I’m a big fan of Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes, and all it’s fictional characters, all it’s surroundings and subsequent plots where murder is king or queen.
If you’re in the mood for a plot where all it’s fictional characters are delicious and murder is the main character, read this book or another one of her collection of works, you won’t be disappointed .

I'm Coming Back to the Things I Love

So it's been a while .... a big while, and for me it seems like forever, a desert that I've been crossing and never moving from the same place, always something missing. We make up excuses for not making the time, absorbed ourselves with life, kids, running from one place to another, in an never ending spiral of .... nothing. When we stop to breathe we come to our senses that this was not what we wanted, we want more, we have to make the time, throw away the excuses and .... change. I've been wandering for a while, going with the flow, and missing the things I love, walking for others then for myself, but remember .... not all who wander are lost.
