Not book related stuff, but I would like to say something regards to my inactivity here. In the middle of last year, I became inactive for my personal reasons. One of my reasons is college. Last fall was my last semester before I graduate in May this year. I worked and studied hard so I could receive final good grades and complete my requirements. Now that I’m done with college, I am looking forward to graduate this year. Hooray!
During my inactivity, I was busy with doing other things I enjoy like knitting and playing video games. In addition, I found an online business opportunity on social media which was excellent and I would sign up for that later on. I read a few books, but I did not have time to review them here.
I apologize for my inactivity here, and I will restart being active here for now on. I’ll still review some books, participating in book tours and blitzes, and excerpts of new books. So, welcome back to me *laugh*.

Castle of Concrete
by Katia Raina
Genre:YA Historical Romance
Release Date: June 11th 2019
In 1990-1991, when the history of Russia and the entire Soviet Union is being revisited and the rules are changing, a fifteen-year-old Jewish girl, Sonya Solovay, reunites with her dissident mother after twelve years of hiding out in Siberia–her life’s dream realized. Still, she sees herself as a typical Soviet citizen: a shy, quiet, obedient, barely-there girl, dissolving into the past, her country’s and her own. Determined to break into her new existence, Sonya tries out a shining new persona, but most of her efforts backfire. One mysterious boy notices her, wants to hear her stories, makes her feel like she is the shiniest part of his world. Everything else might as well fade away–her distant and hungry-for-gossip classmates, the equally shy Jewish friend who doesn’t always seem to understand her, the growing tension with her fiercely Jewish Mama, the rumors of an impending communist coup. More and more, Sonya spends time with her “rescuer” at a construction site she calls “castle.” So what if he uses an occasional anti-Semitic slur?
In the shadow of a crane, among metal pipes and concrete blocks, she finds it easy, falling, falling in love with a muddy-eyed boy she knows so little about. As for being Jewish in a country where the Republics are supposed to be “sisters” and the People brothers, what does one’s nationality have to do with anything?
