Let’s Take a Moment: When the Moon Was Ours

When The Moon Was Ours, is a beautiful book from the dedication page and to the Author’s note at the ending. It was a unique and enchanting read, a read that captures your soul and makes you think about who you really are.

To the boys who get called girls,
the girls who get called boys,
and those who live outside these words.
To those called names
and those searching for names of their own.
To those who live on the edges,
and in the spaces in between.
I wish for you every light in the sky.

-Dedication from When the Moon was Ours

 

Miel has roses growing out of her wrists and Sam has secrets that could ruin who he really is. The Bonner girls are four sisters that are believed to be witches. They want Miel’s roses, believing they have powers in them. Miel, cuts off her roses in remembrance of her mother who drowned trying to save her, refuses to give the Bonner sisters the roses. Sam works on the Bonner’s farm, struggling with who he is while he and Miel find that their love for each other isn’t platonic. Throughout the story, we learn more about how Miel came from the water tower that the town had gotten together to push down. We learn that Sam is from Pakistan and in order for his mother and him to have more freedom, he becomes a bascha posh, a young girl who lives as a boy until marrying age. Miel and Sam have been friends ever since Miel fell from the water tower. He paints moons for her and she lets him be him. It’s a simple enough exchange until the Bonner sisters come around wanting Miel’s roses and blackmailing her for them. They even go as far as to punish her for not giving them to her.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters. Anna kept me captivated from the dedication page all the way to the Author’s Note, and for that I give her a five out of five.

National Tartan Day!

April 6 is National Tartan Day! National Tartan Day is a US observance on April 6 each year. It commemorates the Scottish Declaration of Independence, from which the American Declaration of Independence was modeled on. It also recognizes achievements of Americans of Scottish descent. What do tartans (clothing worn by Scottish Highlanders with distinctive patterns determining specific clans) have to do with the Aurora Public Library District? Come check out the Scottish books display through the week of April 6 at the Aurora Public Library, where you’ll find books with Scottish heroes and lassies that take place on the moors and in the heather. Before you find your next great read, here are some common Scottish terms you should familiarize yourself with before you immerse yourself in the Scottish culture. (Please begin playing bagpipe music here.)

Before we get to the terms, it’s important to note how the words are pronounced. For instance, the ‘r’s’ are usually burred or rolled softly, sometimes the ‘th’ is dropped from the end of the word (with=wi’), or a ‘t’ is added instead of ‘-ed.’ Sometimes words can have different meanings, too, like ‘no’ can be ‘not’ or ‘no’ depending on the context of the sentence. I love reading books with Scottish characters and imagining their accents in my head as I read!

Let’s Take a Moment: Almost Innocent

almost-innocent

Jane Feather has been one of my personal favorites since I first read: Almost Innocent. It’s such an amazing tale. It draws you in and keeps you interested. It makes you want to put it in your to-read-again pile.

The story begins with the Duke of Lancaster and his mistress, Isolde, who also happens to be with child. Throughout the first few paragraphs you can tell something is about to happen; I personally heard gloomy music in my mind as I continued to read. It turns out that Isolde was trying to poison the Duke and he instead poisons her. While she lays dying, the child within her begins to push its way into the world. He thinks about leaving the child there with her dying mother, but instead decides that there was too much death in the room.

Magdalen grows up believing the Lord of Belair is her father. The lord isn’t particularly rude or nasty but almost indifferent to the young girl, mainly because he believes she is ‘tainted by her birth.’ In just a few short-lived moments, we meet the hero: Guy de Gervais.  He arrives to stand-in for his nephew for Magdalen and him to marry. He takes her under his care. She meets her real father, and though he doesn’t mean to, the Duke is cruel and flings her away from him because of the “eyes of her mother.”

Guy’s wife dies, and even at such a young age, Magdalen believes herself to be madly in love with Guy. So she tells him she shouldn’t marry Edmund, his nephew, she should marry him. Guy tosses it away as the naivete of a young girl. She and Edmund marry and Magdalen is sent back to her old home.

Following this, we see Magdalen grown up and see Guy falling in love with her despite himself and everyone else.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Not only was I sympathetic to Guy and Magdalen but I was moved by their passionate love for each other.  There was equal drama and action as well as love and romance. It was just the perfect amount of everything that it didn’t give too much or too little.   I do think there could have been some improvements, but nothing too serious. If you aren’t one to read romance novels because of their specific scenes, then this story is perfect for you.

If you’ve ever been in love, then you know that you get flutters in your stomach, your heart beats faster when they’re near, you can’t get them out of your mind. Why not fall in love all over again with a good book?

But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orphaned, penniless, Jacob Jankowski jumps a freight train in the dark, and in that instant, transforms his future.

By morning, he’s landed a job with the Flying Squadron of the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. By nightfall, he’s in love.

In an America made colorless by prohibition and the Depression, the circus is a refuge of sequins and sensuality. But behind the glamour lies a darker world, where both animals and men are dispensable. Where falling in love is the most dangerous act of all…

 

 

 

This epic tale about the effects of the Russian Revolution and its aftermath on a bourgeois family was not published in the Soviet Union until 1987. One of the results of its publication in the West was Pasternak’s complete rejection by Soviet authorities; when he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958 he was compelled to decline it. The book quickly became an international best-seller.

Dr. Yury Zhivago, Pasternak’s alter ego, is a poet, philosopher, and physician whose life is disrupted by the war and by his love for Lara, the wife of a revolutionary. His artistic nature makes him vulnerable to the brutality and harshness of the Bolsheviks. The poems he writes constitute some of the most beautiful writing in the novel

 

 

 

 

 

Gone with the Wind is a novel written by Margaret Mitchell, first published in 1936. The story is set in Clayton County, Georgia, and Atlanta during the American Civil War and Reconstruction era. It depicts the struggles of young Scarlett O’Hara, the spoiled daughter of a well-to-do plantation owner, who must use every means at her disposal to claw her way out of the poverty she finds herself in after Sherman’s March to the Sea. A historical novel, the story is a Bildungsroman or coming-of-age story, with the title taken from a poem written by Ernest Dowson.

Gone with the Wind was popular with American readers from the onset and was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published and in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the second favorite book of American readers, just behind the Bible. More than 30 million copies have been printed worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

 

 

 

 

 

Set amid the austere beauty of the North Carolina coast, The Notebook begins with the story of Noah Calhoun, a rural Southerner recently returned from the Second World War. Noah is restoring a plantation home to its former glory, and he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met fourteen years earlier, a girl he loved like no other. Unable to find her, yet unwilling to forget the summer they spent together, Noah is content to live with only memories…until she unexpectedly returns to his town to see him once again.

Like a puzzle within a puzzle, the story of Noah and Allie is just the beginning. As it unfolds, their tale miraculously becomes something different, with much higher stakes. The result is a deeply moving portrait of love itself, the tender moments and the fundamental changes that affect us all. It is a story of miracles and emotions that will stay with you forever.

 

 

 

Audrey Niffenegger’s dazzling debut is the story of Clare, a beautiful, strong-minded art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: his genetic clock randomly resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous and unpredictable, and lend a spectacular urgency to Clare and Henry’s unconventional love story. That their attempt to live normal lives together is threatened by something they can neither prevent nor control makes their story intensely moving and entirely unforgettable.

 

 

 

 

As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother Vivienne Margaux, the powerful head of a major New York theater company has no time for her. But she does have one friend–Michael–and no one can see him but her. But Michael can’t stay with Jane forever, and on her ninth birthday, her imaginary friend must leave her.

When Jane is in her thirties, working for her mother’s company, she is just as alone as she was as a child. Her boyfriend hardly knows she’s there and is more interested in what Vivienne can do for his career. Her mother practically treats her as a slave in the office, despite the great success of Jane’s first play, “Thank Heaven.” Then she finds Michael–handsome, and just the same as she remembers him, only now he’s not imaginary. For once in her life, Jane is happy–and has someone who loves her back. But not even Michael knows the reason behind why they’ve really been reunited.

Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears.

Twenty years, two people, one day.

 

 

 

 

Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he’d fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town’s Baptist minister.

A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from the other teens. She took care of her widowed father, rescued hurt animals, and helped out at the local orphanage. No boy had ever asked her out. Landon would never have dreamed of it.


Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter’s life would never be the same. Being with Jamie would show him the depths of the human heart and lead him to a decision so stunning it would send him irrevocably on the road to manhood…

 

 

 

 

Ian McEwan’s symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from this master of English prose.

On a hot summer day in 1934, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’s incomplete grasp of adult motives—together with her precocious literary gifts—brings about a crime that will change all their lives. As it follows that crime’s repercussions through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century, Atonement engages the reader on every conceivable level, with an ease and authority that mark it as a genuine masterpiece.

 

 

 

 

 

The Mackenzie’s/ McBride’s Series

Jennifer Ashley takes us into a world of intrigue with her Scottish Romance series, The Mackenzie’s and the McBride’s. She makes the families so relatable and intriguing that as they go through their lives filled with danger and love, it captures you and never releases you from its thrall.

Despite his decadence and his intimidating intelligence, she could see that he needed help. Her help. Because suddenly the only thing that made sense to her was…The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie.

The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie

Hart has it all–a dukedom, wealth, power, influence, whatever he desires. Every woman wants him–his seductive skills are legendary. But Hart has sacrificed much to keep his brothers safe, first from their brutal father, and then from the world. He’s also suffered loss–his wife, his infant son, and the woman he loved with all his heart though he realized it too late.

Now, Eleanor has reappeared on Hart’s doorstep, with scandalous nude photographs of Hart taken long ago. Intrigued by the challenge in her blue eyes–and aroused by her charming, no-nonsense determination–Hart wonders if his young love has come to ruin him . . . or save him.

The Duke’s Perfect Wife

Juliana St. John was raised to be very proper. After a long engagement, her wedding day dawns—only for Juliana to find herself jilted at the altar.

Fleeing the mocking crowd, she stumbles upon Elliot McBride, the tall, passionate Scot who was her first love. His teasing manner gives her an idea, and she asks Elliot to save her from an uncertain future—by marrying her…

After escaping brutal imprisonment, Elliot has returned to Scotland a vastly wealthy yet tormented man. Now Juliana has her hands full restoring his half-ruined manor in the Scottish Highlands and trying to repair the broken heart of the man some call irredeemably mad. Though beautiful and spirited, Juliana wonders if that will be enough to win a second chance at love.

The Seduction of Elliot McBride

Book Six:

Daniel Mackenzie lives up to the reputation of the scandalous Mackenzie family—he has wealth, looks, and talent, and women love him. When he meets Violet Bastien—one of the most famous spiritual mediums in England—he immediately knows two things: that Miss Bastien is a fraud, and that he’s wildly attracted to her.

Violet knows she can’t really contact the other side, but she’s excellent at reading people. She discerns quickly that Daniel is intelligent and dangerous to her reputation, but she also finds him generous, handsome, and outrageously wicked. But specters from Violet’s past threaten to destroy her, and she flees England, adopting yet another identity.

Daniel is determined to find the elusive Violet and pursue the passion he feels for her. And though Violet knows that her scandalous past will keep her from proper marriage, her attraction to Daniel is irresistible. It’s not until Daniel is the only one she can turn to that he proves he believes in something more than cold facts. He believes in love.

The Wicked Deeds of Daniel Mackenzie

Book Seven:

Scottish barrister Sinclair McBride can face the most sinister criminals in London–but the widower’s two unruly children are a different matter. Little Caitlin and Andrew go through a governess a week, sending the ladies fleeing in tears. There is, however, one woman in town who can hold her own.

Roberta “Bertie” Frasier enters Sinclair’s life by stealing his watch–and then stealing a kiss. Intrigued by the handsome highlander, Bertie winds up saving his children from a dangerous situation and returning them to their father. Impressed with how they listen to her, Sinclair asks the lively beauty to be their governess, never guessing that the unconventional lady will teach him a lesson or two in love.

Book Eight:

1745, Scotland: The youngest son of the scandalous Mackenzie family, Malcolm is considered too wild to tame…until he meets a woman who is too unattainable to resist.

Lady Mary Lennox is English, her father highly loyal to the king, and promised to another Englishman. But despite it being forbidden to speak to Malcolm, Lady Mary is fascinated by the Scotsman, and stolen moments together lead to a passion greater than she’d ever dreamed of finding.

When fighting breaks out between the Highlanders and the King’s army, their plans to elope are thwarted, and it will take all of Malcolm’s daring as a Scottish warrior to survive the battle and steal a wife out from under the noses of the English.

Let’s Take A Moment: Gabriel’s Inferno

publication1

Can’t decide what to read? Can’t get interested in anything? This book will ignite an inferno inside of you that just leaves you wanting more and more.

Gabriel’s inferno not only focuses on Professor Gabriel Emerson and Julia Mitchell but Dante and Beatrice as well. Like almost every romance you read, these character’s don’t just fall head over heals in love with each other at first sight. They start out with a platonic relationship. Julia, having grown up with Gabriel’s little sister, knows all about how haunted Gabriel can be, especially after spending a night in his arms at the age of seventeen. Having believed herself madly in love with him, she chooses to become a Dante specialist and enrolls into his class. Professor Emerson can come off as a bit rude and snobbish but he ultimately warms on you. Julia and he begin a relationship slowly, though, with the school’s fraternizing policy, they can’t be seen out in public while she is his student. Professor Emerson makes moves to protect Julia from harm by finding another Professor to take her on for her dissertation, the fear of being found weighs heavily on their minds. As their relationship grows, both Julia and Gabriel must come to terms with their past.

The story focuses on the emotional sides of relationships and how the past can hurt you without redemption and penance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It not only captivated me, but made me feel as if I was next to Julia and Gabriel, watching as they fell in love. I loved how Mr. Reynard romanticized his writing, not only this way but how he took us through the scenery and made us feel as if we were there and not sitting in class or in bed reading. Gabriel and Julia’s relationship was conflicted, of course, but they fight for it and they endure the hardships. Reynard does write differently than other authors.

Ratings from others:
“The Professor is sexy and sophisticated . . . I can’t get enough of him!”—USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby
“[In Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture,] I found myself enraptured by Sylvain Reynard’s flawless writing. Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture are books I will always treasure and are among my top ten reads of last year.”—The Autumn Review
“An unforgettable and riveting love story that will sweep readers off their feet.”—Nina’s Literary Escape
“Sylvain Reynard’s writing is captivating and intense . . . It’s hard not to be drawn to the darkly passionate and mysterious Gabriel, a character you’ll be drooling and pining for!”—Waves of Fiction

Who needs a Happy Ending?

romance novel

Who needs a Happy Ending? We Do! A blog in support of the Romance genre.

It’s no secret that romance novels have appealed to women for decades. Romantic fiction remains the top-selling sector of the book market. Last year, the genre brought in a whopping $1.5 billion in the U.S. alone. Romance fiction is smart, fresh and diverse. Whether you enjoy contemporary dialogue, historical settings, mystery, thrillers or any number of other themes, there’s a romance novel waiting for you!

Most of us go through our daily lives on autopilot. We’re assailed from every direction with so much ( family demands, tedious chores, etc.) that we become numb out of self-defense. Reading romance  gives us a chance to feel, to remind us that we’re human and that there is a beautiful, exciting world out there, waiting to be discovered under the piles of laundry that command our attention. If you are new to the world of romance novels, here’s a list of titles to get you started. The 101 Best Romance Novels of the Last 10 Years.  Two basic elements comprise every romance novel: a central love story and an emotionally-satisfying and optimistic ending.

As the role of women in society has changed over the past 30 years, so have romance novels. Romance novels are often called “bodice-rippers,” (in a derogatory tone) but the steamy historicals with Fabio on the cover were published back in the 1970s and 1980s. Since that time, the spectrum of romance novels has exploded. On one end of that spectrum, there are chaste evangelical romances. On the other end, there are BDSM romances (yes, like that one).

In between, you’ll find paranormal romance with vampires and shapeshifters, time-travel romance, historical romance, contemporary romance, and romantic suspense. There are growing romance subgenres for LGBT love stories, a large community of writers who specialize in African-American romance, and there’s even an extremely popular Amish romance subgenre. I enjoy all the genres and many of the sub-genres. Some of my personal favorites are the FEVER series by Karen Marie Moning in paranormal, and the FAIRY TALES series by Eloisa James in the historical genre. In the time-travel sub-genre and one of my overall favorite series is the OUTLANDER series by Diana Gabaldon. I can’t get enough of the romance genre. Luckily 84% of women agree with me so we’ll always have talented, creative writers filling our need for romance sprinkled with mystery, suspense, faith or fantastical creatures , every way we like it, because really who couldn’t use more happy endings?
