Hi everyone! Another month, another book nook prompt! I was really excited when I saw this months prompt, props to Abbey and Tabitha for coming up with such a creative prompt. I was assuming it would be something like classics or non-fiction so when I saw this prompt I was pleasantly surprised (although I wouldn’t complain if those two prompts come up).
“Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?

Hi everyone! So I’ve never been one to take a lot of interest in new releases. I often notice them but I don’t always think about the new releases that I have to read as soon as they come out. I’m the type of person who ends up becoming obsessed with a book that was released five years ago, it is quite rare I read a book as soon as it comes out.
“Sarah is doing just fine. Sure she’s been single for the last five years, and has to spend an uncomfortable amount of time around her ex-boyfriend, his perfect new girlfriend and all their mutual friends. And yes, her job as a PA to one of the most disgusting men in London is mind-numbingly tedious and her career is a constant disappointment to her mother. But it’s really okay. She’s happy (ish).
Hi everyone! So I am already five books in to my challenge of 25 this year and the fifth book I read was for this month’s book nook. For this month’s prompt, Abbey and Tabitha came up with doing a book swap in order to share our love of books. I rarely swap books with anyone so I was really excited for this prospect and what a better time to share the love of books than the month of valentines day!
“Sophie’s got used to being the girlfriend of Billy Buskin, the biggest movie star in the world. Sort of. But when she and Billy take a trip to visit his family in Los Angeles, she quickly discovers she’s totally unprepared for the chaos of Hollywood, the paparazzi and Billy’s controlling mother.
Hi everyone! So if you are a regular reader, you will know that I take part in the Blogger book nook run by Abbey and Tabitha every month. If you are new to this, it is a book group where Abbey and Tabitha set a prompt for each month with questions relating to it in order to motivate us to read a book relating to the prompt and review it. This month’s prompt was an interesting one as it goes against every instinct I have as a reader…to judge a book by it’s cover. For this prompt, I chose The girl of ink and stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave because it has such a beautiful cover and struck me as something I would read.
“Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred thousand dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.
“Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch–“Scout”–returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt.”
Hi everyone! I can’t believe we are in December and two weeks away from Christmas! I never feel particularly festive up to Christmas because we don’t really put our decorations up until the week before Christmas. However, I was so excited for this month’s prompt because I knew it was going to be Christmas themed and I already had my eye on a festive read that I had been wanting to read for a while and knew it would be perfect.
