Romance, in itself, existing only for itself, is definitely not my go-to genre, as probably you all have already noticed by now. The reason I chose to read this novel anyways is that it's set on Santorini. No, it's not my dream destination. I've already visited. And LOVED it. I was thirteen, I was on a trip with my father and it was amazing! Since a while I've been wanting to go back as an adult, though there are so many places to visit in this world and so little time, why would I go back to where I already was...? It's an eternal dilemma. Anyway, I decided to read this book because I wanted to get back to Santorini a little. And that happened.
A sweet picture book with adorable illustration and a very important lesson to teach. I'm not a hundred percent sure, though, that it in fact works with actual little children.
A very emotional collection of poetry that I have mixed feelings about.
This was my first experience with the Stupid Poems series, and honestly, I have no idea what to think.
As an introvert who often gets herself into unwanted situations that include other people, I expected this book to be very funny, and I hoped some funny angles will maybe even help me to actually get out of situations. Well, this was a cute little book with fun illustrations, but that's about it.
I know Christmas is already a month away, so it's not a very good timing for this review, though if I'm being honest I have to warn all to-be-readers of this book: 'Christmas by the Lighthouse' has very little to do with either Christmas or Lighthouses. I do see where this title comes from, but it still somehow seems to be a bit of a false advertisement. Anyway, let's talk about the book itself!
Unfortunately I have to admit that I completely missed the depth that I expected to experience through these poems after reading the description.
