Searching Saturday #5

Good day, everybody!  I’m Remi.  Happy Saturday!  How are you?  I’ve finished Bloodfever earlier this morning and Splintered by A.G. Howard this afternoon (I’m not gonna do a review on this one). I’m currently reading Stardust by Neil Gaiman.  It’s my first ever Neil Gaiman book!  Well…yeah, I’ve watched the movie before.  I hope the book will be amazing!
Today I’m joining Nikki @TheNightIsDarkAndFullOfBooks for Searching Saturday.  The topic this week is ‘Between 100-200 Pages’.  

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan 

Genres: YA, contemporary, romance 

It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who just walked in to his band show. With a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.

This he said/she said romance told by YA stars Rachel Cohn and David Levithan is a sexy, funny roller coaster of a story about one date over one very long night, with two teenagers, both recovering from broken hearts, who are just trying to figure out who they want to be and where the next great band is playing.

Told in alternating chapters, teeming with music references, humor, angst, and endearing side characters, this is a love story you’ll wish were your very own. Working together for the first time, Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have combined forces to create a book that is sure to grab readers of all ages and never let them go.  (From: Goodreads)

Why I chose this book: I gave it uh…two stars.  However, there are a lot of funny moments in the book.  If you’re looking for a relaxing read, you should probably pick it up.

Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom 

Genres: documentary, essays 

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.

Maybe, like Mitch, you lost track of this mentor as you made your way, and the insights faded. Wouldn’t you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you? 

Mitch Albom had that second chance. He rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing he was dying of ALS – or motor neurone disease – Mitch visited Morrie in his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their rekindled relationship turned into one final ‘class’: lessons in how to live.  (From: Goodreads)

Why I chose this book: You can learn some great life lessons.  Also, if you want some advice or quotes, this book could be a good choice.

That’s all for today’s Searching Saturday.  I hope you liked it.  Let me know what you think.

Have a nice day and I’ll see you around.  Bye 👋
