Booking Through Discuss / From The Review Pile (16)

btt button

Do you like to talk about what you read? Do you have somebody to talk WITH?

Yes, I like to talk about what I read. Very much so. BUT I do not have somebody to talk with about the books I have read. In school and college, I had such friends. NOT any more. At times I do feel frustrated but that is how it is.

I think, book blogging takes care of our MUST discuss needs!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday. The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review. (or any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

Today I showcase Aroha by Anaru Bickford

Book Description:

Tormented daily by the cousin who holds her responsible for ripping their family apart, Maori teenager Aroha has many, many other things to worry about. Though she lives in the US with her aunt and uncle, the dreams that have plagued her since her childhood in New Zealand are starting to recur more and more often.The sun felt suddenly cold. 'You know so many things, Nanny,' I said.
'So do you, my Aroha.' She sat in silence for a while, then said, 'Well, what was it?'
'What was what?'
'The question,' she said. 'That the voice asked you.'
So I told her.
'How will love survive, when the whole world's on fire?'
Attacked from all sides, Aroha must learn to listen to her heart to discover the truth. AROHA is the story of a journey to find love, and to accept responsibility … at the end of the world.

I have no one to discuss books with either, that is why I love the book blogging world.

Yes, this question made me ponder how different things are for me nowadays, in terms of bookish people in my life. So I am grateful for blogging....

Blogging is a good way to discuss books.

I can totally relate to a lack of real life people to talk books with. I live in a very small town, and part of the reason I spend so much time at the library is that they are the only other bookish people to chat with. I have met some cool moms from my boys' activities, but so far only one other reader (of romances only) and she moved away a couple of years ago.
