Last Letter From Istanbul by Lucy Foley . Review




The story is set in 1921 and is told from different people’s perspectives , but it centers around one woman called Nur . Nur’s homehouse has now been turned into a hospital for wounded soldiers belonging to the enemy much to her horror  .
 Nur is a teacher and she has taken under her wing a curious young boy that needs looking after . When he gets seriously ill she has to turn to the last person she ever imagined she would ask for help ... The Enemy . The story is bittersweet , the heartbreak and confusion of emotions during wartime is really well described and the turmoil that war brings to families is enough to bring a tear to your eye . I really enjoyed this story and I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in wartime stories . 

I received this book for review form the lovely people over at Lovereading.co.uk

Be available from Lovereading and all other good bookstores then .

Scythe by Neal Shusterman . Review



This story is set in the not so distant future and is centered around two main characters a girl called Citra and a boy named Rowan. In the future,  government is no longer needed , something far greater monitors everything and runs things smoother then the old ways with politics etc . As everybody is living longer it became necessary to have Scythes, people picked to kill others .  . Citra and Rowan get picked to become apprentices to these Scythes and then the plot really gets juicy ! This was an amazing book with terrific world building that was very believable , this author has a terrific way of making you feel for these characters and while you are reading this , present day just fades away as you daydream about could any of this happen . So Good !!! I recommend to all , especially if you are a dystopian fan . 

I received this book for review from the lovely people over at Lovereading4kids. This book is being published February 2018 and will be available from Lovereading4kids and all other good bookstores then .
