Hi, catreaders! How are you today? Today, I’m going to talk about something that is very dear to me and I’ve wanted to create this kind of content since day one. The name of the website was also inspired on it. I’m going to write about books! I love reading and I love talking about what I’ve read with other people. My major focused, for the most part, on reading and discussing what we’ve read. And so with this new series, I want to share with you some books I’ve read in the past or more recently (I do try to read a book per week) and my thoughts on them! I hope you enjoy this new series and that you can find some inspiration for your next reads!
The first book I’m going to talk about for this series is ‘One Thousand Names’ by Cecelia Ahern. Now, if you do know her, you’ll also know she’s the author of ‘PS: I Love You’, which I didn’t know until I’ve read the ‘One Thousand Names’. I had watched the movie several years ago, but I didn’t really care for it. I know, everyone loved it and til today, there are people talking about it, but for me it was the intensity and the loss that she writes about that made me difficult to enjoy it. I do now, though. And Cecelia Ahern writes beautifully. She took me on a journey with ‘One Thousand Names’ and I was reminded that people are beings with feelings and emotions and that everyone has a story to tell, even if they don’t know about it at first.
The book is a mixture of finding others while finding yourself. The main character, Kitty Logan, is involved in a scandal and being a journalist, she can’t find a new job. I don’t want to give too much away, but the main story begins when a close friend of Kitty dies and leaves her a list of names (100) with which Kitty should write a story about. She has no other guidelines or help with what she needs to do, but she decides to try it anyway. Constance was Kitty’s mentor, so Kitty trusted and wanted to make her proud. She then goes on a journey to find all these names and try to get a connection between them. I will not tell you what the connection is or if Kitty even finds it herself, but do know that the anticipation to know what will happen in the end is huge! I could not put the book down. I really needed to find out what was the ending.
Overall, the book really makes you want to read it and if you like stories in which the characters are in search of something or themselves, I think you’d really like this one. It has a lot of adventure and drama, but also forgiveness and second chances. Let me know if you decide to read it and if you enjoyed it! Maybe we can create a book club all together and discuss further!
Happy readings, catreaders!
