Publication Date: 2017

Special Features: None

Summarization: A¬†vibrant¬†and transcendent journey about growth and healing. Ancestry and honoring one’s roots. Expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself. Divided into five chapters and illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of¬†wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming.

Review: A fan favorite filled with truth, dignity, and woman empowerment. It shows that woman are more than delicate flowers. Just like the first book that she published called Milk and Honey it speaks about her life and what goes on through it.

A high rated recommend for those who like poetry and want a quick read as well.

Book Review VII.

Title: I am the Messenger

Author: Markus Zusak

Publisher: KNOPF

Publication Date: 2002

Edition: 2005

Pages: 357

Special Features: None

Summarization: I Am the Messenger begins with a botched bank robbery. The gunman is so incompetent he drops his gun and steals a car that barely runs. Ed Kennedy, a directionless nineteen-year-old cab driver, picks up the gun and prevents the robber from leaving.

Review: One of the top five favorite books on my list. A funny yet gripping tale of a cab driver who receives five messages that he has to solve before he can move on to the next one. A favorite that can easily be finished within the day.

Once you start reading, you won’t want to stop until the very end. However, it will leave you with questions about the author and whether or not the character was inspired off of something or someone? You’ll have to read to find out for yourself.

If you want a book that’s a page turner and a fan favorite amongst many readers, I suggest this book.
