"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From the minute I opened this book I knew there would be an underlying tragedy to the story but ultimately the message of the book is coming to terms with bad situations that happen in life but continue to find the true and beautiful things you can still experience...and that is the ride this story took us on. There were a few times I wanted to yell at the main character Nollaig and tell her to "Snap out of it! because she was surrounded by so much love. Everyone grieves and handles life's situations differently so you have to go along and let her work the problems out on her own.
From the moment Nollaig fell into Sully's life the chemistry was amazing and we are taken on an amazing journey of learning the true meaning of Christmas as well as an exciting lesson in living life to the fullest and love. This part of the story was just so much fun to read. It was exciting to learn of the different traditions they have in Ireland, and the way Krissy described the dates Sully took Nolly on, it made you wish you were right there with them.
I highly recommend this story to everyone. It leaves you with a wonderful feeling of hope and love, family and friends, and helps you to remember to cherish all this so you can still enjoy life, no matter what it throws at you.
The contrasting attitudes that Nollaig and Tully have towards the festive period make for a very interesting read, and enables readers to empathise with at least one of the main characters, creating a connection with the reader immediately. Nollaig cannot get away from Christmas no matter how much she tries. Her name is the Irish word for Christmas, and her birthday falls on Christmas day, meaning that one special day of the year meant just for her is actually shared with everybody she knows, taking the edge off her day! To top it all off she lost her parents on Christmas Eve. So, yes, Christmas is and always will be grim for Nollaig.
But, her life takes a turn when one day when out shopping she stumbles into musician, Tully, in a most embarrassing way. Tully is a very warm, kind and caring character who absolutely loves the festivities. And, over the course of the story it becomes clear just how magical Christmas can be as he empathises with Nollaig, yet tries to show her just how beautiful it can be. Will Nollaig appreciate Tully’s efforts, or is it too much too soon?
I love how the author has made both of these characters patient with each other, and they both give each other a chance, rather than giving up. The conflict of the story is their opposing views, which is a little overwhelming at times for Nollaig; sometimes in an exciting way, and other times in an emotional way. This couple are just so cute for each other, the reader is constantly rooting for a nice outcome.
It is a lovely, warm story that is sure to warm up any cold winter. And so, if you’re looking for a winter read while the season is still upon us, or whether you want to make your Christmas list early for December 2016, A Taste of Christmas is perfect for you!
This was a wonderful love story for the Tully and Nolly. Nolly had a hard time with Christmas since her parents passed away on Christmas eve and her birthday is Christmas day. Normally, she spends Christmas all by herself or maybe a few hours with her family. Until she falls at Tully's feet and he is destined to make her feel joy at Christmas.
This was a sweet romance that both character have going on. The two of them get along so well and enjoy their time together. When reading this book, the author does a great job describing the drinks and the chocolate.. This was a sweet fairy tale for Tully and Nolly. Also, it will get you in the mood for Christmas or maybe to out traveling during the holiday season. This book will make your heart melt. Lindsey, Reviewer for MNP
This is a Beautiful Christmas book. It is about Nolly who hates Christmas and then Meets Tully who loves it.
I laughed and I cried (sad tears and happy ones) when reading this book. I felt the emotions Nolly was going through bursting off the page. A Taste of Christmas will make you believe in the true meaning of Christmas and all the Magic it holds.
A Taste of Christmas is romantic, loving, fantastic, emotional & magical. A perfect read for the Holidays.
