Grace Kelly: Princess of Movies and Monaco – in60Learning
A delightful look into Grace Kelly’s life, starting from her childhood through to her death and the legacy she left behind. In60Learning‘s book provides an interesting, simplistic and efficient read on the young woman’s life.
Grace Kelly is hailed as a philanthropic princess of Monaco and a successful American actress. Her legacy lives on and is captured within her films, selfless acts for her family and her two countries which is beautifully written within this biography.
A few things I have noted, is the usage of quotes from Grace Kelly at the start of each chapter. Direct quotes I believe provides an emotional insight to the character of the person at that point in time. Black and coloured imagery was also used, almost one in each chapter, unfortunately quite small to see much detail. Bullet points to list and emphasise efficient reading. Not only does the biography delve into Grace Kelly’s life, but also spotlights into her family’s history. I enjoyed the read and if you, like me, read on the go and would like to know the main facts, I’d give this book on Grace Kelly’s life a go!

ABSOLUTE TRUTH, FOR BEGINNERS – Katrina West
Aside from the intriguing titles of each chapter, the whole novel itself is as compelling as each turn of the page.
Elisa Mancini is a Nobody. Painfully insecure, more at a ease with books than with people, at twenty-three she’s a university dropout living at her aunt’s…
Written beautifully, readers are instantly submerged into Elisa Mancini’s personal life. It was like travelling side by side with her, seeing and feeling what she was experiencing. But, below the surface I found myself learning the complexities of love and the fine line of obsession, as well as finding one’s identity. I recommend you having a read of this novel, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey.

GREY – E L James
Pages: 559 | Target $8
If you have read the Fifty Shades of Grey series, this novel is basically told in the perspective of Christian Grey…
Grey is not just any man, a CEO of a growing business and who loves to exert control in all aspects of his life. His discipline of control is challenged by a clumsy, shy but beautiful Anastasia Steele. With her, he faces inner emotions which “he cannot comprehend and cannot resist”.
This novel is a truly fun read, it is easy to comprehend and honestly I could not stop giggling on the train to and from work. I am surprised with Grey’s perspective, because unlike the other series I thought he had of a more “cold” look towards her and life itself. Though through this novel, I came to understand more of his character’s past and how he tries to understand his feelings towards Ana. For me, I personally like this book because of the fluency of the storyline and the quirkiness. For $8 at Target, why not?
