The book exchange at the Novotel in Suva provided me with Worth Fighting For by Mary-Anne O'Connor. This book takes place during World War II, but rather than touching upon Europe it focuses on the war in the pacific (Pearl Harbor, Australia, etc.). I really liked O'Connor’s writing. The story was well told and the … Continue reading Book Review 18: Worth Fighting For
The bookshelf at Beachouse had moths fly out…literally. When you moved a book you also moved the moths and the book selection was equally sparse. My only option was Toys by James Patterson and Neil McMahon. I never thought I would find myself reading a James Patterson novel, but here I was.

Now less than two weeks into being in Fiji I’ve read four books. I’ve had activity filled days and I have been socializing constantly so I’m not sure … Continue reading Book Review 14: Talk of the Town

Also, Apple Maps is pretty much useless in Fiji and Google Maps is only slightly better. It’s hard understanding distances and getting directions (Apple Maps … Continue reading Hotel Review – Nadi
My friend had finished Who Did You Tell? by Lesley Kara whilst in Fiji and passed the book on to me. It’s a crime/thriller-esque book. This isn’t my go to genre and I have a bad habit of wanting to know what happens before finishing the book. I usually can guess the endings or shocking things … Continue reading Book Review 13: Who Did You Tell?
