March is nearly over, and this month flew by so fast! As March is usually a busy month for me, I didn’t get to read as much as I would have liked (12 books). But, I did get to read a few good books (and not so good books), and as usual, my to-read list has grown exponentially with 1799 books on my to-read shelf on Goodreads.
Books I Loved…
[See my review]
It is 1962, and Elisa Esposito—mute her whole life, orphaned as a child—is struggling with her humdrum existence as a janitor working the graveyard shift at Baltimore’s Occam Aerospace Research Center. Were it not for Zelda, a protective co-worker, and Giles, her loving neighbor, she doesn’t know how she’d make it through the day.
Then, one fateful night, she sees something she was never meant to see, the Center’s most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man, captured in the Amazon, to be studied for Cold War advancements. The creature is terrifying but also magnificent, capable of language and of understanding emotions…and Elisa can’t keep away. Using sign language, the two learn to communicate. Soon, affection turns into love, and the creature becomes Elisa’s sole reason to live.
