My Name Is Memory

When we started this blog we wanted to cover all sorts of topics that interested us, fashion and interior design, food, travel etc. Mostly it's been about fashion but today I'm doing a book post! :D

I love to read so I thought I'd share some of the books I've enjoyed. The most recent book I've finished is My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares.


Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. Daniel has "the memory", the ability to recall past lives and recognize souls of those he's previously known. It is a gift and a curse. For all the times that he and Sophia have been drawn together throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. A love always too short. Interwoven through Sophia and Daniel's unfolding present day relationship are glimpses of their expansive history together. From 552 Asia Minor to 1918 England and 1972 Virginia, the two souls share a long and sometimes torturous path of seeking each other time and time again. But just when young Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally begins to awaken to the secret of their shared past, to understand the true reason for the strength of their attraction, the mysterious force that has always torn them apart reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together. A magical, suspenseful, heartbreaking story of true love, My Name is Memory proves the power and endurance of a union that was meant to be.

It's a lovely book! I couldn't put it down and stayed up till 4AM to finish it! I searched online and found a trailer that was made for the book's release last month. I think the actors they got fit Brashares descriptions well, especially the actor playing Daniel. :) Enjoy!

Another book that I want to read is Mockingjay the last book in The Hunger Games trilogy. It comes out on the 24th of August! Can't wait!

Do you guys like to read? What're your favorite books? :)
