101 Fish Pictures101 Fish Pictures by Lily Endicott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pictures. Give me pictures. I often pick up picture books for Kindle as I can enjoy beautiful pictures of just about anything. My recent NaNoWriMo novel included horses and centaurs so I picked up picture books on horses. This book just came up and I always love looking at fish. We don’t have room for an aquarium so pictures will have to do.

When I feel the need I will pull this one back up and just relax my eyes on these photos. I wish this was made into a screensaver app. I would love it! Oh, the nice part is that this one has no words. Although I would have liked to have the fish identified for my curiosity. But I could look it up if I wanted, I suppose.

Eleanor & ParkEleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, how, sweet! One of my GoodReads friends, Lovely Primrose, recommended this to me. That was a long time ago. I couldn’t afford it so I put it on hold from my library. It seemed forever before it came my turn to read. Of course, I ordered the large-print version. I was glad. It was quite comfortable for my eyes to read. Even more, it was a joy for my heart.

Romance. Yuck! That’s what I usually think. But this book grabs you right from the beginning. You get the story from Eleanor and Park’s points of view. The angst of the story wasn’t ‘does he/she love me?’ but rather the angst of not fitting in. And it shows the inner beauty of these two people.

You get to see how their lives work at home and it all becomes clear why they act the way they do. Even though it was a hefty one, because of being large-print, book, I found I didn’t want to stop reading. I thought about it when I wasn’t reading. And… I am sad it came to an end. I would love to see a book two. It isn’t needed except for the fact that I miss the characters. It ends with a satisfactory feeling. But… please, please, please??

I recommend this one for anyone young at heart.
