Tots 100 Book Club: The Death and Life of Charlie St.Cloud

Tots100 Parent Blogger Book Club

Last month as part of the Tots 100 book club I was sent The Drowning Pool as recommended Carol from Dance without sleeping. Apparently it is a spooky ghost story. You can take a look at her review of The Drowning Pool over at her blog. I am very much looking forward to reading it. Tesco not only sent me the book on Carol’s recommendation they also sent me a galaxy  Yum!

Now it is my turn to pick a book and a lovely blogger to pass it on to. I have chosen The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud. It is about loss, deep deep grief and it is about life , love and reasons for living. It really made me cry and it helped me  let go. It has apparently now been made into a film. It is a love story and a loss story and a story about hope. It is beautiful, profound and simple. I am going to pass this on to my dear friend Jen Walshaw who blogs at The Madhouse in the hope it uplifts her.

Jen I hope this book touches your heart like it touched mine. God bless my friend.

P.S I initially bought this book because once, many moons ago I went to a party in a place called St.Cloud and I was so happy there, it was right nect to the Mississippi river and we sat out under the stars listening to the water.

Some info about the book club:
The Tots100 Book Club is where bloggers share their favourite stories. Every month, the Tots100 invites
10 bloggers to tell us about stories that have moved and inspired them – and to share their favourite books with another blogger. Each month, they’ll be publishing a round-up of the Book Club’s recommendations over on the Tots100
site, meaning you need never be short of great reading inspiration again!

    I am really looking forward to reading this. I have just finished The Hunger Games, which were rather good and a very easy read.
