Book Review | The House

Title: The House

Author: Anjuelle Floyd

My Review:

If you need a good cry, then The House might just be the book for you. After all, I had to put it down every 30 pages or so, because I was just too overcome with emotion to continue reading.

For starters, the premise is a fascinating one — full of provocative questions that make you really tap into who you are and how you would behave/react in different situations. At the same time, the premise is also a very emotionally charged one and not a very unusual one. I can speak from experience (unfortunately) and say that the manner in which Anjuelle Floyd handled her subject matter was very realistic and genuine. She hits the nail on the head time and time again, when addressing the emotions that surround a diagnosis of terminal cancer.

To say that I was pleasantly surprised by The House is an understatement. I think The House is a perfect summer read…you will dig deep into yourself as you make your way through this book, and it will make you feel, which is what a truly good book should do.
