Happy Monday everyone! I though I’d start the week off by highlighting a book on my GoodReads TBR. I currently have 839 book on my Want-To-Read list which I know is endless. However, I feel if I start looking at it regularly I might end up cleaning it up while I scroll through looking for that one book to highlight. So here to a clean-up side affect 😉
This week I dug out A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard. I have yet to read anything by Sara Barnard, but I want to. This book has been on my physical shelf for at least two years now. I’m just waiting for the right readathon to read it at something like contemporary-a-thon or something. It sounds super sweet and a fun read.
Steffi doesn’t talk, but she has so much to say.
Rhys can’t hear, but he can listen.
Their love isn’t a lightning strike, it’s the rumbling roll of thunder.
Steffi has been a selective mute for most of her life – she’s been silent for so long that she feels completely invisible. But Rhys, the new boy at school, sees her. He’s deaf, and her knowledge of basic sign language means that she’s assigned to look after him. To Rhys, it doesn’t matter that Steffi doesn’t talk, and as they find ways to communicate, Steffi finds that she does have a voice, and that she’s falling in love with the one person who makes her feel brave enough to use it.
From the bestselling author of Beautiful Broken Things comes a love story about the times when a whisper is as good as a shout.
