Book Review-WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Emily Bronte

This book is for my Genre challenge for Romantic fiction and also for the Whitcoulls Challenge. This was such a strange book. I enjoyed parts of the book and not so much other parts. It is such a sad, and in a strange way sort of funny love story. It is the story of a vicious man's who starts out as a sweet orphan boy and is treated cruelly, falls in love and gets his heart broken and turns into a horrible character. I really had a sad heart for Heathcliff, he was such a terrible man but I can't help but fell so sorry for him and the turmoil that he went through that brought him to be such a terrible man. Another reader said "While reading this I felt I was in the grip of a nightmare". I think that is a perfect statement..
I've always wondered about this book and now I have read it, I'm proud of myself for reading it.

Book review SECRET LIFE OF BEES by Sue Monk Kidd

For my Realistic Fiction book I read "The Secret Life of Bees" I consider this realistic Fiction since it really could have happened. There is nothing in this book that is extraterrestrial or totally off the wall. I enjoyed the book..It was about a young girl who was in search of motherly love..Her mother died as a young girl and she longs for love desperately. Her and her negro housekeeper run away and find a family of sisters that take them in. She grows and learns a lot from them. She eventually finds the love that she has been looking for.
I am also counting this book for my LIT FLICKs challenge. The movie should be out soon..

Review of historical fiction book: SARAH by ORSON SCOTT CARD

I read Sarah by Orson Scott Card. I am counting this as historical fiction genre since it has historical facts but also has some fiction..
This was about Sarah of Genesis and Abram. It started with Sarai as a young girl in her father's house and her first encounter with Abram when he came from the desert to their home after Sarai sister Quira. His brother Lot was going to marry Quira.
Abram comes back 9 years later to marry Sarai and they begin their journey. It tells of their life and their journeys together and her struggle with being baron. It was such a good book, uplifting and interesting. Orson Scott Card wrote this book very well, it captures the attention and is very easy to read.. I would recommend this book to all..
