The Greatest Story Ever Told: A Love Story (Greatest Story Ever Told, #1) by Rebe James

The Greatest Story Ever Told: A Love Story (Greatest Story Ever Told, #1)The Greatest Story Ever Told: A Love Story by Rebe James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I would have to begin with the fact that this book is for people with average and above average IQ. It is complex and interesting. It has a lot of lines that have to be followed.
Be aware, this book may actually teach you something!
I love the way “The Greatest Story Ever Told” is written. It makes you think on every sentence you read. It is not just one of many historic fiction romances.
This is not about a man and a woman that are with perfect bodies and perfect looks, but it is for two people, with great minds, great attitudes and great personalities. Well both are them are good looking too, but that is not the most important thing in this book. The most important thing here is the mind and the ability to think on your own.
I truly believe that everyone can find something precious in this book for himself or herself. For me it was this: “You really don’t think very much of me, do you?” he chuckled.”You speak of me against judgment, yet you stand before me accuser and judge all in one.”

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Now that is something different! I cannot even begin to describe this book. It has so much t offer. Where does one find love like this? So overwhelming, so powerful, so deep… I am speechless.
I really don’t know how to describe this book without giving any spoilers. But be sure, that it is amazing. I am sure, that if have ever loved someone, really loved him or her and you would be able to find some of your own feelings in this book. I have never read a book about a love story that could do that, and believe me when I say that I have read a lot. This book made me love my man even more. It made me appreciate every little thing we have ever done together, every glimpse I get at him looking at me.
I can never tell you how refreshingly amazing this love story is. It is written so perfectly that I feel that I am part of the story, not just a reader. Look at this passage and then tell me I am not right!
“Oh, my God! Was I ready for this step? My body was trembling. I had seemed bolder in my own world than over here in this strange land. “

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am an English language teacher and thus I am in constant search of children's literature.
That being said, I stumbled on this book.
It is very good. I have heard of it for some time now, but I have never really given much thought. Today I finally read it.
It is perfect for little children who are just beginning to read in English. It has a lot of repetitions which helps children to accumulate confidence in reading. The illustrations help a lot too. The book is funny and has a great moral lesson at the end.
I recommend it to all teachers as myself, who are looking for a way to plant the see of the joy of reading in their little students.

Missed opportunities - quote

I am not sure that I agree with this statement. The first time I saw this quote I was so sure it was the absolute and undeniable truth. But I put the quote in the draft folder and tough it through. 
Now, when some time has passed, I am not convinced. There a lot thing worse than missed chances like not having food and clean water. People are really selfish creatures and cannot appreciate what they have. And when I say they, what do include myself. We all need some drama in our lives to understand how happy we were or what we had.
Why can't we just be happy about what we have? Why do we need to constantly abuse ourselves to understand that we had something really good? Someone sad that without the darkness you would never appreciate the light. I do not agree! Without the darkness you would just never appreciate the darkness. 
I will not beat myself about any missed chances anymore. NO. I will take the ones I find suitable at a particulate moment and I will be brave enough to take the consequences of my choices and actions, no to cry over the missed choices.

Dancing at Midnight: The Life of June Parker by Rebecca Yelland

Dancing at Midnight: The Life of June ParkerDancing at Midnight: The Life of June Parker by Rebecca Yelland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is amazing. I had totally different expectations of it. I thought that it was going to be a melodramatic love story – sweet and boring. But NO. This book is amazing. It is deep and it touched my heart in a way that so little books can.
June Parker’s story is about a young girl who has only one wish – to have a true family. It appears, that a family as we know it is something very luxurious to have. It is also shown in this book that families are not always your relatives, but the people who are your friends. The book made me think how happy and lucky I was to have a great loving family and good loving friends.
The best part of the book is the way it is written. The language and the descriptions are so good. It is so easy to read and to imagine the story that is developing in front of your eyes.
I hope that Rebecca Yelland will publish another book soon. I am looking forward to it.
