Santiago's Road Home is a heart wrenching realistic portrayal of several people who get caught at the Mexican-US border. The story helps us understand the struggles and extreme poverty the families are trying to escape. With hopes of new life and dreams of making decent money to support their family, the Mexicans try to cross the border illegally or in some cases request asylum at the border. Regardless of how they enter the families are separated by gender and babies, toddlers, young kids all get separated at the detention center.
War and Speech is a fantastic read and I enjoyed every second of it. I found the concept to be new and fresh. I loved the set up for the story and how the speech and debate program was used in delivering relevant messages as well.
The Goblet Of Fire was a fun reread for me just like every other Harry Potter reread. Brought back so many memories and was filled with memories and fun times. I loved every second of it.

Every book in the Harry Potter series brings back emotions and memories from back in the day and floods me every time I read them. I remember being obsessed with the book s and then getting excited about the movies and these were some of my favorite book memories. I saw the movie is till the 4th book and therefore remember a lot of details even though there are some differences with the book and movies.
