Born on a Blue Day is a memoir written by Daniel Tammet. It covers Daniels journey in embracing and conquering his autism. He wrote this book to teach others to do the same with their own differences. He is an autistic savant who has an amazing ability at math, memorization, and language. At one point he memorized and recited pi to the 22,514th number. Daniel sees words in colors and numbers in shapes. I think his thesis is inspiring. I like the fact that you can use your differences to better yourself and the world. We get to see how Daniels life gets better as he starts to see his autism more positively. There is a pattern of loneliness until he meets people through accepting his autism. Daniel becomes happy. The book is written fairly clear. The author gets the point across. Daniel achieves his goal by breaking out of his comfort zone. His main points are to accept differences and to share them as well. He proved this by showing how successful his life became once he did and by writing the memoir. The book shows the possibility of achieving happiness despite boundaries. The book left other peoples view of Daniel. The book is a unique story of overcoming obstacles. Personally, I have also had to learn to embrace myself, just like everyone. I like that the memoir shows a different view on life. I did not like how much Daniel talks about math. Born on a Blue Day is a great story of using your unique qualities to better yourself and the world. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to see a little hope in life.

Rise and Shine by Sandra D. Bricker Shannon Malone wakes up from a coma after almost ten years. Not only is she no longer a newlywed she is now a widow. Her beloved Edmund has passed away from cancer. Dr Daniel Petros has taken care of her most of these years and has gone above and beyond the standard care. He befriended Edmund and took of the care of her personal affairs after his passing. Now he has taken on the job of familiarizing Shannon with the world and changes that have taken place. As Shannon struggles to learn this new world, she faces grief and guilt. Her guilt builds as she develops an attraction to Dr. Daniel. Just like in sleeping Beauty, the Evil Queen rears her ugly head in the form of Edmunds evil sister. And the three good fairies show up as her three aunts who have made her well-being and care their a main concern, especially her Aunt Mary. I fell head over heals in love over Rodney the basset hound. Read this great book to see if Dr Daniels kiss wakes her and they find their happily ever after. You will find inspiration, romance, quirky characters and amusement around every corner. I love Sandra D. Bricker books, they are always so light hearted and fun. She takes a serious situation and puts a positive light on it. I think I fall a little more in love with her books the more I read. In fact I have never found one that I did not like because I have found all of them fantastic. I give this book a high five, great job. It is well written with characters that are enthusiastic, inspiring and full of life. I highly recommend this book to anyone searching for a compelling Christian book that is entertaining and gives hope to the readers with stories of faith. I want to thank the author Sandra D. Bricker and publisher for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

Daniel Pinkwater rocks. I go into an altered state every time I read his wonderful stories. I'm 62. I've heard they're written for kids. I don't think so. Daniel, write faster please. (If you want to...)

Shannon wakes up from being in a coma for 10 years. Dr. Daniel is there when she wakes up. A lot has changed during the 10 years, she was on her honeymoon when the accident happen. Her husband passed away during that time and everyone looks a lot older. She told her Aunt Mary " you look terrible! Are you sick" , but she had just gotten older. When Daniel gives her a Kindle she says "what's a Kindle". Some things she can remember and some things not. She does continue to remember things, also they find out they actually knew each other when they were children. This book made me laugh and cry. I got really attached to Shannon. I loved this book,

I love following Daniel Silva's characters through each of his novels. I am vested in their lives. I also love the art aspect of each of his novels.
