This one is a little different. It isn't a book, and it isn't JUST reading. This is a website I stumbled upon a few weeks ago, and it is a place for creators, artists, photographers, and anyone with any kind of interest to go and read and learn about different things. You can literally find anything on here. I personally use it to promote my website, and share some awesome content. I also love reading about different places to travel to and I find photographers that give me inspiration. It is a great place to go to when you need a break from every day life. It is almost like a pinterest for articles and more in depth content. Check it out! Niume.com
I purchased this book on a whim, in a discount box at a grocery store. The only reason why I grabbed this book, was because it had a life preserver on the cover, and I was headed to the beach! I started to read this at the beach, but didn't finish because other things, like getting a call about a job in Alaska, distracted me. I didn't pick this book up again until 4 months later, and then did not put it down until I was done.
This book is a love story, mixed with adventure, excitement, danger and decisions made without too much thought. It is about a girl in her 20's, who moves to America, and falls in love. He then tried to convince her to take the trip of a lifetime, halfway across the world. That is as much as I will tell you!
Torre DeRoche's writing makes you feel as if you are talking to your friend, and they are telling you their life story. It is a true story, which are my favorite to read, so there is nothing that makes you think "psh, yea right!" I loved this book, and if I didn't have a stack of 10 books to read right now, I would easily pick it up again.
GREAT book if you love adventure, or if you need to live vicariously through someone or something. This WILL transport you. The quote on the top of the cover, "A compulsively good read" absolutely reins true. LOVE LOVE this book.
