Book Haul #2


P.S I Love You by Cecelia Ahern- Holly a beautiful, smart and married to the love of her life- a passionate, funny and impetuous Irishman named Gerry. Suddenly, Gerry's life is taken and Holly is left gasping, the only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly like Gerry did, so its a good thing he planned ahead!

Before Gerry passed away he wrote Holly a series of letters that will guide her not only through her grief but in rediscovering herself. Each letter sends her on an adventure and sign off in the same way- P.S I love you!

Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer- "I'll tell you what happened because it will be a good way to introduce my brother, his name is Simon. I think you're going to like him, I really do. But in a couple of pages he'll be dead, and he never was the same after that."

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn-  "Who are you? What have we done to each other? These are the questions Nick Dunne finds himself asking on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't rrue. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they weren't made by him, and then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone. So what really did happen to Nick's beautiful wife?"

Two Brothers by Ben Elton-  "Berlin 1920, two babies are born. Two brothers. United and indivisible, sharing everything. Twins all but blood. As Germany marches into its Nazi Armageddon, the ties of family, friendship and love are tested to the very limits of endurance. And the brothers are faced with an unimaginable choice...Which one of them will survive?"

Mimi by Lucy Ellmann- "It's Christmas Eve in Manhattan, Harrison Hanafan, noted plastic surgeon, falls on his ass. So far, so good. 'Ya can't sit there all day, buddy, looking up people's skirts!' chides a weird gal in a coat like a duvet- Mimi! She kindly conjures for him the miracle of a taxi. Recuperating in his apartment with Schubert, Bette Davis, and a foundling cat, Harrison adds items to his life's work, A List of Melancholy Things (Walmart, puppetry, Velcro, whale eyes, shrimp-eating contests...). But when he receives a dreaded invitation to address his old school, Mimi reappaers, with all her curves and chaos. She and Harrison fall emphatically in love. And, as their love-making reaches a whole new kind of climax, the sweet smell of revolution is in the air."

Happy reading!
