Daddy by Danielle Steel
My rating: 2 of 5 stars ** spoiler alert **
I just finished the book and I want to write the review now, to get it over with. At the same time this is the last book that I read in 2019!!! Not sure if it’s a good or a bad thing but I’m happy I managed to get to the end of it.
This is the story of a father that has to sacrifice for his three children, after the mother decides to leave them to go back to university. I believe that because I’m a mother it was hard for me to understand her decision. I don’t understand why she had to go so far away from her kids. She could have left her husband but still try to stay close while following her dreams. At the same time I was able to understand that she felt trapped to a life that she never wanted. But from there to actually abandon your children…I don’t know.

Cress by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The third book in The Lunar Chronicles is full of so many adventures that it keeps you on the edge from the beginning to the end. It is amazing how an author can create this fantastic world and suck you in it like you are part of the story.

Cold Betrayal by A.J. McCarthy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First I want to make it very clear that I loved this book. So very much.
I must say though that I’m so happy that I didn’t read the Goodreads description before reading the book. Talking about spoilers…
My review has some spoilers…I think…🤷♀️😌
The book is based in Quebec, which happens to be the province of Canada in which I live…yayyyy. Don’t worry this is not the only reason why I loved the book 😌 . The story made me feel so many things and I think at one point I wanted to stop reading it because I was so confused by my feelings. Luckily I read a kindle edition, otherwise I could have easily thrown the book into a wall out of frustration.

As I’m lying in my bed thinking about how my life turned out to be so different than what I thought it would, I’m thinking about love and how it feels to feel loved. I forgot about this feeling. I can’t remember those butterflies and those feelings when my heart skips a beat or the anticipation of seeing the loved one.
While I’m contemplating about everything and nothing at all I remembered about the Kindred Spirit mail box. 💕 This is a mail box in North Carolina, placed on a beach full with letters of any kind. The box doesn’t belong to anyone in particular and there is no mailman that comes to pick up the mail. You go and either read the letters or write a letter of your own and leave it there. I wish I could go and visit, it sounds so romantic and so deep and inspiring.
I did find however a Kindred Spirit mail box online. 😊🤗 I found it by browsing Nicholas Spark’s website and it’s full with amazing letters. Some are so emotional that made me cry like a baby. Others are so full of hope and love. But what really amazed me is to read so many letters for the “first love”. There are so many people out there still thinking to that first pure love and still thinking to the “what if…” It breaks my heart to think that so many people remained all their life with this regret.
If you want to read the letters or write a letter of your own here is where to go: Kindred Spirit Online . You can be anonymous so feel free to put down all emotions that you feel like are holding you down.
Thanks for reading! I hope you live a life full of love…
