Hello After a Long Time!

Hello my dear book fellas,
it feels good to be back here again because I missed you. I took a little break right before Christmas and I haven’t posted anything since then. My blog and Instagram are still there but in two months they are left with zero posts. It came all of a sudden and to be honest, I didn’t plan this. I didn’t plan on taking this big break. I thought it will be like for a couple of days, but here we are. Anyway, I’m glad I took this break because there are too many big, new things in my life. They are, like, lifechanging things and I had to get used to them. First of all, in December, right before Christmas I got married. It was a lovely day and everything was great. I was planning to post more about the wedding, but since this blog is more about books, I decided not to post these details about it. We had a lovely time and now I am a happily married woman.
Another new thing in my life is that I got the job. I’m a kindergarten teacher and working with children is really great. I enjoy working there. I started earlier in January and I must admit that I was a little worried about working with children because they can be mischevious. All of my worries disappeared after a week because I saw how brilliant, inspiring this job is. It brings so much joy and I love it there.

When it comes to reading, I got to say that in December I haven’t read anything which is okay because I was busy back then. Also, in the first week of January I didn’t read because our families and friends came over and I barely had time to myself. Everything changed somewhere in the middle of January when I decided that it’s reading time. First of all, I read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Actually, it was a reread for me but I felt that I needed something great to get me back on the track. I finished the amazing Six of Crows and only then I realized that I don’t own the second book Crooked Kingdom. I had it on my ereader, but I wanted to read the actual book. So, just like that I went to the closest book shop and bought it for me. I was so happy! I haven’t started reading it yet because there is some obligatory reading to do, and after that I will read Crooked Kingdom.

Six of Crows: 5/5 ⭐

In January I also read The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. I have read all three books in this series and it was good. I enjoyed it and my favorite is the first book, which is also called The Hunger Games. My least favorite is the third book and I found it a little borring, but the ending was so huge! Brilliant and I loved it! It was also a reread for me because I remember reading it a few years ago, but back then I have read only the book one and I’ve never got to read the rest. Now, I borrowed it from the library and I had a really nice time reading this series. I will probably get back to it again sometimes in the future.

The Hunger Games: 5/5 ⭐
Catching Fire: 4/5 ⭐
Mockingjay: 3.5/5 ⭐

I started my February with the book called This Train is Being Held by Ismee Amiel Williams and I’m enjoying it so far. I received this book in the mail in the last week of January. I want to thank to the publishing house abrams&Chronicle books for sending me the proof in exchange for my honest review. The book will be out on February 11th and I’m looking forward to it! The book is great and I will leave my review once I’m finished.

So, guys these were the books I’ve read in January and I’m so excited about February! I have some amazing books on my TBR shelves. What are you reading this month?

Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav | Highlights

A Love Letter to Bali

I will never forget those slow, languid days, warm and balmy. The sun was a pomegranate red, ripe, and full of promise, painting the pink sky. We stayed in a Grecian-style villa, overlooking the shoreline, watching the waves crash onto the lazy stretch of sand below.
The daylight sunk into starlight like a slow transition, as we lost track of time altogether. My skin grew luminous and shone from the inside, glowed like a lantern. White crescent moons appeared at the bottom of my fingernails. My hair grew thicker, wilder. We were feasting on exotic fruits and midnight conversations that drifted into the sea salt breeze.
We slept. We woke up in the half-light to watch the sun come up. We didn’t write a single word.
Mischievous monkeys scampered across our balcony. Frogs hopped in our path and out of sight again, the sound of their croaking ever-present. Tiny birds darted in and out of our line of vision like thoughts.
The half-moon yawned when we waved goodbye to another moment, lost to memory. The walls learned our secrets like how you like your coffee black and I like mine with cream and sugar. We left something of ourselves behind.
He feels like the culmination of every good deed I’ve ever done.


From: Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav

As you can see, this is another post about the last book I read called Love Looks Pretty on You. I like the author’s word choice and the emotions that the author gave us are wonderful. There is some soft vibe in the book that makes you feel emotional and I think only a few authors can achieve it. Lang Leav was successful in her language to show us all these emotions. To describe how you feel is quite complex task to do because there is always this variety of emotions. Everyone fights their own battle and there are always the good and the bad feelings inside of us. Happiness versus sorrow. Peace versus anger. It’s up to you to decide how you feel and how your life is going to look like. You just have to understand your feelings.

Also, the author’s descriptions are marvelous. They are the upper level of the language and it’s something that will always attract me. As you can see, Lang Leav did an amazing job at this point and I want to read such descriptions all the time. The book Love Looks Pretty on You is full of these amazing descriptions and I highly recommend you to read it. Do check it out!

In my previous I left you the Amazon link, so you can order it if you want.

Book Review: The Art of Breaking Things by Laura Sibson

In the tradition of Laurie Halse Anderson and Sara Zarr, one girl embraces the power of her voice: rules are meant to be broken and she won’t stay silent.

About The Art of Breaking Things

✦ SYNOPSIS ✦
Seventeen-year-old Skye has her sights set on one thing: getting the heck out of Dodge. Art school is her ticket out and she’s already been accepted to her first choice, MICA. All she has to do is survive her senior year, not get too drunk at parties, and be there for her little sister, Emma. Sure, she’s usually battling a hangover when she drives to pick Emma up, but she has everything under control. Until he returns.

When her mom’s ex boyfriend slithers his way back into her family, it’s all Skye can do to keep the walls of her world from crumbling. Her family has no idea Skye has been guarding a dark secret about her past – about him – and she never thought she would have to face him again. She knows she has to get away from him at all costs. But how can she abandon Emma?

Skye’s heart is torn between escaping the man who hurt her years ago and protecting her loved ones from the monster in their midst. Running away from her fears isn’t an option. To save her sister – and herself – she’ll have to break all the rules.

✦ SEXUAL ASSAULT, PEDOPHILIA, DRUG ABUSE ✦
Skye is an art student in high school and she works hard to get her scholarship at an art school. Her Mother and little sister are everything in her life. She loves them, but because of her secret – she can’t truly express her love for them. When she was twelve, Mother’s boyfriend, Dan molested her. Because of that, Skye hides herself in drugs – she drinks every night, she smokes joints, and she hits on the random guys.

The truth is that nobody knows how she feels. Even Sky herself don’t know what to do. She realizes that it is not natural that Dan touched her the way he did, but she can’t search for help when even her Mother doesn’t believe her. She’s on her own. Skye’s Mother is an alcoholic – she drinks every night and she is often moody. Because of that, it is difficult for Skye and Emma to have any kind of healthy relationship with their Mother.

Ben is a friend of Skye and she has a crush on him. He plays in a band and he does drugs at parties. Once he crosses the line, Ben’s parents send him to a rehabilitation centre expecting him to be clean after some time. They think Skye is the bad influence and they won’t let her get in touch with Ben. In some way, we realize that Ben is the one who badly influences Skye, because she just follows the pattern.


✦ ART AS A MEANS OF COMMUNICATION ✦
In this book, Skye uses art to express her thoughts and feelings. She has tried so many times to tell her Mother what Dan did that night, but somehow she couldn’t. She was scared and she thought that her Mother won’t believe her. She has tried once to tell her what happened, but she was too drunk to believe it. Skye sees her rescue in painting. Once, she starts working on that big, mosaic project – the truth comes out.

✦ CHARACTERS ✦
Skye is a brilliant and really strong character. Well, her only option is to be strong because she has to protect her little sister. She doesn’t want Emma to suffer the way Skye does. She is protective, but sometimes it cannot be seen because Skye shows her love towards Emma and her Mother in a wrong way. I think that’s because they, as a family, never had a healthy relationships. They could never talk about their feelings and secrets. There was no time for such things.

The little Emma is so smart and energetic character. She is amazing and even though she is only twelve, she knows how to deal with problems. I think she was forced to mature early. There are times when their Mother cannot take care of them just because she is drunk. Their Mother is the weakest character and her miserable life destroyed the perfect childhood.

‘There’s no such thing as perfect, Lu,’ I say softly.
‘Because we’re all a little fucked-up.’ I poke her in the arm and she looks at me,unsmiling. ‘That’s what makes us interesting.’

The Art of Breaking Things, Laura Sibson

✦ OVERALL ✦
This is a glorious book and I am so happy I got the chance to read it. It was emotional and I wanted to hug Skye and give her some love, she really deserves it. It broke my heart that she went through so many things alone. I love the strength in her and she will always be my hero, my super woman.
On the other hand, I hate Dan and I think the ending isn’t so strong. I don’t like how he just vanishes into a thin air. I think the ending could be a bid different and I felt like the book is unfinished.
To sum it up, I quite enjoyed reading this book and I will definitely read more of Laura Sibson books.

My rating: 3.5/5⭐

Book Review: Commute by Erin Williams

An intimate and powerful visual exploration of the blurred lines between yes and no, consent and assault, and the daily decisions women must make between being sexualized or being invisible

About Commute

Thank you to Abrams ComicArts for giving me a free ARC in exchange for an honest review!

✦ ABOUT THE AUTHOR✦
Erin Williams is a writer, illustrator, and researcher living in New York. She’s the coauthor of The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People and The Big Activity Book for Anxious People.

✦ SYNOPSIS✦
In Commute, we follow author and illustrator Erin Williams on her daily commute to and from work, puncuated by recollections of sexual encounters as well as memories of her battle with alcoholism, addiction, and recovery. As she moves through the world navigating banal, familiar, and sometimes uncomfortable interactions with the familiar-faced stranger she sees daily, Williams weaves together a riveting collection of flashbacks.
Her recollections highlight the indefinable moments when lines are crossed and a woman must ask herself if the only way to avoid being objectified is to simply cease to draw any attention to her physical being. She delves into the gray space that lives between consent and assault and tenderly explores the complexity of the shame, guilt, vulnerability, and the responsibility attached to both.

✦ THE FEMALE FACE OF SHAME ✦
In her book, Erin talks about an uncomfortable reality and the way she accepted the truth about herself. Erin represents many women who have experienced exactly the same thing. Almost every woman has been taken advantage of by some guy and after she felt shame. And now, Erin ecourages these women to talk freely about that subject. She tells us that it is natural to feel this way, but she also says that we should stand up for ourselves. There is something intriguing about the power of women that makes them so unique.

✦ SEXUAL OBJECTIFICATION OF WOMEN ✦
There is one big, ugly truth. Men view women as sex objects. No matter how much we try to reject that fact, it just exists. It’s our reality and the author of this book shows us that. Erin tells us her story about relationships with guys. Each one of them saw her as a sex object. This sexual objectification reflects on her self image in a way that she was constantly searching for male approval. She invites guy to come over her place, but she doesn’t feel anything.

✦ IT IS OKAY TO STAND UP FOR YOURSELF ✦
Many women do not talk about female shame or any kind of abuse. Women are raped, treated badly, or were neglected and some of them just remain silent about that. They think it is something natural – the way it should be. The truth is that it is NOT natural and it should NEVER be like that. They deserve much, much better things and Commute is all about that. The author wants us women to be united and always support each other.

✦ OVERALL ✦
I really enjoyed reading this book and it was so emotional experience for me. Just the way Erin talks about her battles freely is so uncomfortable for me, and I admire her for her strength. It takes a lot of courage to talk about your life openly, especially when you have been through so much.
I also loved the illustration in the book and I can’t wait to order the final copy – it will be printed in color and I am beyond excited! Also, this book is not for young readers because there is some explicit content. I definitely recommend this book to adult readers who like to read self-help books.

My rating: 4/5 ⭐
Expected publication: October 8th 2019 by Abrams ComicArts

Book Review: Love and Hate by Lara Wilde

Sometimes love turns into hate and hate can sometimes turn into love.

Love and Hate, Lara Wilde

✦ ABOUT LARA WILDE ✦
Lara Wilde is a young lawyer, surfer and most of all she is a Romance author with a great passion for true love stories and feelings inherent to the human nature. Lara grew up in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro and also in Virginia, USA. At a point in her life she decided to follow her childhood dream of being a writer and explore the world.

As an avid observer passionate for people’s behavior, she immersed herself in different places and cultures. A thing Lara realized though, was that no matter where she was or the culture she was involved in, humans have the same basic emotions. The everyday dramas and stories of love thend to repeat within different scenarion.

Currently based on the contient of Europe, Lara loves the good wine, weather and history that feeds her inspiration to write good stories.

✦ SUMMARY ✦
Love and Hate is a novella that takes place in Portugal (Porto,Cascais, and Lisbon). It is a love story about Leonor and Manel, two teenagers who fall in love at first sight. Leonor is a young, smart girl who has a very strict parents. However, it does not mean that Leonor should stay at home every night.

Manel is a young, cute boy who takes Leonor to the parties. They dance, swim and sing at the beaches of Portugal. It was all great until Leonor meets a young member of the band who is immediately attracted to Leonor. Of course, Manel gets very angry and all jealous and he breaks up with Leonor and goes to study medicine in Porto.

Leonor is broken-hearted. She calls him everyday, but Manel never responds. She is desperate and even starts hating him a little bit. After all, she decides that they simply weren’t meant for each other. Who knows? Maybe it’s better that way because they will never see each other again. The story gets complicated when Leonor comes back to Porto and runs into Manel.

Leonor finds herself questioning about her feelings.

✦ SUMMER AND BEACH LIFE ✦
This book is a good summer read and I am glad that I read it now, during summer because all of Lara’s descriptions got me daydreaming about those stunning beaches of Portugal. You just can’t read it without wishing to be right there.

She stepped out of the car and took in the sight of her new work place. The building was gorgeous. It was a white three-story building with pink flowered vines running up each side of the entrance way. The smell of salt was in the air from the sea and with it being such a warm day, she could still feel the cool ocean breeze. Which she had always loved

Love and Hate, Lara Wilde

I think I’m in love with these descriptions because they are just what I need. There were too many descriptions like this one and it was hard for me to choose which one to post here. I really want to go to Portugal now.

She smiled in return and sipped at the rosé. It was refreshing and sweet, and in the evening sunlight, it perfectly matched the dreamy view. The fading warmth of the sun mixing with the cool ocean breeze stirred that part of her once more.

Love and Hate, Lara Wilde

✦ BARBIE AND KEN ✦
The love story between Leonor and Manel is so romantic and cute and ugggh.. It made me emotional so many times. I was sad at the beginning of the book because Manel was kind of stubborn and he did not want to hear what Leonor has to say. On the other hand, I understand him somehow. He is deeply in love with her, and just seeing her talking to that random guy was just.. painful, I would say.

I loved how Leonor was strong enough to move on with her life without him. She is a successful architect and she has it all. Also, I noticed how she changes once Manel leaves her. But, she had no choice! Of course that she would go on with her life and do her best. She deserves only the greatest things!

But, I repeat, the romance between them two is the cutest! I can’t get enough of it.

‘You know what I realized that day?’
His voice was so low, she was afraid the sea would swallow his words.
‘What?’ She prompted breathlessly, her heart hammering in her chest.
‘How much I wanted to kiss you,’ he whispered.

Love and Hate, Lara Wilde

✦ OVERALL ✦
To sum it up, I quite enjoyed reading this book. Lara Wilde is an author that will always be special to me because she writes good things, but her work is unrecognized. She is brilliant and the world should know her and her books. Love and Hate is a perfect light, summer read and I can see myself bringing this book with me on holiday. The plot was cute and easy to follow. The characters are cool and I felt like I could relax together with them. There is no need to get into a deep observation of them. All you need is to sit back and enjoy yourselves.

If you want to read something that will relax you, then I suggest picking up this book, you might enjoy it.

Book Review: The Burden of Trust by Tabitha Young

Sometimes, the heart exacts more than we want to pay

Te Burden of Trust, Tabitha Young

✦ SYNOPSIS ✦  
Faced with a decision that would change her life forever, Katerine ‘Kate’ Woods took the route that seemed best with the circumstances. Only time would tell whether or not she had made the right choice. Her own family required more than a bit of finesse. From being an on-demand aunt for her niece when her sister checked out on them to dealing with her mother’s peculiarities, she just needed some solitude to get her life back on track.

Chris Cody – sexy, arrogant, and in need of of a serious attitude adjustment – enters Kate’s life in nothing less than the dramatic way known as second nature to the very handsome movie star. Armed with his own issues and in need of a good friend, Chris lands on Kate’s doorstep with a proposal to shock them both.

From New York to Florida to California, the two find themselves in a situation that is not ‘ripped from the headlines’ but makes the headlines in all the ways that Kate does not want. The bonds of love and friendship are truly tested in this moving tale about relationships, families, and life’s surprises.

✦ LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT KATE AND CHRIS ✦
Kate is that type of person who has too much going on in her crazy life. She is torn between her past and present and all she wants is to escape it. However, Chris Coddy (read the sexiest man alive) enters her life in a dramatic way and that is the moment when everything changes for Kate. Kate is a brilliant and well-developed character. She is caring and I think there’s no better person than her. She is going to kill us all with her kindness.

On the other hand, there is Chris. He is an amazing character – so strong and I loved the way he helps Kate to heal and I wouldn’t say that he made her happy. It is more that he helps Kate to learn how to be happy. I want to have Chris in my life because he would be the greatest motivational speaker. There is so,so much to learn from him, if you ask me.

✦ FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE EVERYTHING ✦
I really liked friendship in this book, it’s so good. I loved Kate’s friends because they are really helpful and they made her feel she is not alone in this. I want Kate’s friends. Can they be my friends too? Moreover, they are very protective but it does not necessarily mean that it’s something good. There’s a fine line between protectiveness and possessiveness. And this book is great example if you look the Becky-Kate-Cris relationship.

Also, I liked Chris and his friends – they are great, but let’s say I liked them 1-2% less than Kate’s friends. They are so strong secondary characters and they kept the plot interesting.

✦ OVERALL ✦
Overall, this book was very enjoyable. I loved reading about Kate and Chris – it was really great! Even though the plot was characters were quite predictable but believable, I found the plot easy to follow. It was so easy to get into the book and everything. I also liked the small fragments of drama that kept me wide awake.

I loved how emotional and interesting this book is! I cried, I laughed – and more importantly – I learnt from it. I recommend it if you like romance.
3.5/5 ★

Book review: I Heart Hawaii by Lindsey Kelk

‘I am a woman who has it all,’ I said quietly, staring at my own face reflected back in the screen of my iPhone. ‘I am a woman who owns her power.’
The version of me looking back rolled her eyes but I went on regardless. ‘I am strong, vital and beautiful.’
And tired, emotional and, according to the tag in the front of my pants, wearing knickers back to the front. Although they were clea, so at least there was that. The affirmations were my best friend, Jenny’s idea.

I Heart Hawaii, Lindey Kelk

✦ SYNOPSIS ✦ 
When Angela Clark’s best friend Jenny invites her to join a press trip to Hawaii, three days of sun, sea and sleep sounds like the perfect antidote to her crazed life.

At the work in New York, she’s supossed to be the face of Having It All. But the only thing Angela feels she excels at is hiding in the printer cupboard, eating Mini Cheddars and watching Netflix on her phone and if this is living the dream, she’s more than ready to wake up.

A few day away with Jenny sounds like exactly what she needs but Angela’s talent for getting into a scrape guarantees nothing goes to plan – and not even the most beautiful beaches, blue skies and daiquiris will get her off the hook…

✦ SUMMER DASH ✦
I Heart Hawaii is the last book in this amazing series, and its title makes you want to grab the book and go read it somewhere on the beach. Ideally, that would be somewhere in Hawaii, but let’s keep it real. This book is so romantic, brilliant, and funny. I absolutely loved it!

‘Look at the ocean. I’ve never seen so many shades of blue. ‘
As we rode higher up the rocky road, I could see the shoreline in the distance and the outline of another island a few miles away across the ocean. On the other side of us was a science fiction landscape, cast in every single shade of red and brown that had ever been conceived.

I Heart Hawaii, Lindsey Kelk

The author’s descriptions of Hawaii are so realistic and, I’m usually not really into long descriptions, but this book could be all about Hawaii and I would still read it, because, oh my God.. If I could, I would pack my suitcase and go to Hawaii.

We sat down just as the blue sky started to turn pink, laughing and joking, and most importantly, eating, until the sun was completely swallowed up by the ocean. What seemed like a hundred candles of tiki torches glowed in the sand and the moon rose above the water, keen to show us she wasn’t afraid of a little flashy competition.

I Heart Hawaii, Lindsey Kelk

✦ ANGELA, JENNY, AND ALEX SQUAD ✦
First of all, this is my favourite squad, I want to be one of them! Angela Clark is an amazing woman, I admire her. She is the mother of Ellis. Ops, I mean Alice. She is a strong woman and the way she keeps the balance between her career and her private life. She has the most handsome husband in the world, the cutest baby, the bestest friend, and she is very successful. Do you need anything else?

Jenny deserves an award for being the best friend in the world. She is gorgeous, smart and kind. She is the new Oprah, I knew it from the beginning. I love how she always has some new, fantastic ideas. She always has solution for any kind of problem.

I love Alex Reid! I’m so jealous of Angela for being his wife. He’s the most handsome man walking on the planet. Actually, he exists only in the I Heart series, which is painful for me. I want him to be real.

✦ OVERALL ✦
I loved this series, I don’t want it to end. I remember reading this series almost ten years ago, and I was obsessed with it. I loved everything about it and these books will always be something I would gladly reread.

I have read this book under 24 hours and I’m still hungover. Somehow I managed to write this review and express my thoughts and feelings about this book. All I know is that I loved it and it’s my favourite summer read so far.

Definitely a huge 5 star read for me that I highly recommend.

Book Review: Dark Soul Experiments by Bre Hall

What if you could relive a past life by touching a piece of it?

✦ SYNOPSIS ✦
Ren Morris is a snarky, sixteen-year-old girl living in the middle of nowhere. When she meets cute and mysterious Peter in the local antique shop one day, he buys her the most unique charm bracelet she’s ever seen. Soon, she discovers an object hidden inside one of the charms and is transported to Civil War-era South Carolina, where she lands in the body of Southern Belle, Charlotte, one of her past lives, just days before Charlotte’s death.

When Ren returns to the present, Peter explains that her soul has been cursed. Splintered. She has been forced to die tragically, and far too young, in each lifetime. It will happen again – soon – unless Ren can trust Peter and his unconventional experiments to help stitch her soul back together and stop the curse once and for all.

As Ren begins to discover her past lives, she also realizes just what’s worth living for in her present one. But when she uncovers a secret, Ren starts to question the outcome of the experiments and whether or not falling into the past will in fact save her from a doomed future or if it will be her final undoing.

✦ CHARACTERS ✦
I think that Ren is a brilliant character and, in this story, she is a heroine. I love her so much! She is curious and energetic, but aren’t all teenagers like that? She is so caring and kind! I liked the way she treats her Father and Gran . Huh, her grandma is annoying, but I still found her funny, she always makes that special kind of orders like putting Whiskey in her tea, she is hillarious.

Also, I really liked Alfie, especially in the first half of the book. He is protective, brave and clever. He is a real gentleman and I think he was ready to die for Ren. However, the author had something different in their mind.. *no spoiler*

Am I allowed to say that I have some feelings for Peter? I know that I am not supossed to like him or anything, but I fell for him from the beginning. Is it possible to like someone who is not a good person? Yes, it is definitely possible. He is selfish, arrogant, but oh how handsome and intelligent! I want to read the story from Peter’s point of view, please.

The guy we’re actually looking for is about five-foot-ten, curly black hair, jawline models envy. He also has a tattoo of a bird’s wing on one of his fingers.

Dark Soul Experiments, Bre Hall

✦ RELATIONSHIPS ✦
My favourite relationship was that between Ren and Alfie. Their friendship is everything. Alfie is so understanding and protective and he is just amazing. Everyone needs one Alfie in their life.

How long have we been friends?
What does this have to do with anything?
Just answer the question, will you?
She shrugged. I don’t know. Forever?
Exactly. ,he said. I’ve put up with your wild antics forever and I’m going to keep putting up with them, I’m going to keep being here. Forever.

Dark Soul Experiments, Bre Hall

✦ MAGIC ✦
Another important factor is definitely magic. Beside humans, we learn about Discentem and Auxilium, whose brains are structured to function on a larger scale than humans. I loved how Ren learns to levitate it was so magical. My favourite was the ability to move the objects around her, it is amazing.

✦ OVERALL ✦
I loved this book so much. I cried, I laughed, and I enjoyed. And I would do it again, it’s worth it. Everything in this book was perfect for me! The plot is very unique and interesting. I also loved the concept of story within a story.
My favourite thing about the book is the character development. They are wonderful and so realistic that they made me feel like I am a part of their story.

The book will be available on 8/6/2019
It is definitely a five-star read for me, I highly recommend this book.
