Finders Keepers Review

Jane Barnaby is living her dream. She’s attending a wonderful school in England. She has a wonderful advisor who she adores completely. So when he asks her for a huge favor, she accepts without hesitation. Due to a mix-up, though, what would have been a simple trip turns into a high-speed chase that has her unsure of what to do and who to turn to. Can she make it to her professor safely? Or is she doomed to lose it all? Wow! This was an amazing read! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! This book was full of adventure and chaos. I loved every moment of it and can fully see this turning into an action packed movie. There wasn’t really much I didn’t like about this book. I do wish there were characters that had a bigger part in it. The narrator did a great job as well. I loved her impressions of all the characters! I was very impressed and I would be fully willing to hear other books read by her. Sadly, I don’t remember her name. I need to make a better point of remembering the narrators’ names. Especially the ones who do as great of a job as this one did!I fully recommend this book! It’s full of danger and adventure. I was on edge the whole time and couldn’t wait to read more. I will be reading more books by this author and the rest of this series! Jane has become one of my favorite characters of all times! I’m glad I got to read this! 5 StarsFormat: Audio Book

Splatypus Review

This is a children’s book about a platypus who is trying to find friends to play with. He spends all day around all types of other animals to find the right people to play with. I think this book is so adorable! It has a great message for children. It was also a quick and easy read. It would be a perfect bedtime read! I didn’t have any problems with this book. It was cute. I read it to my puppies and they seemed to be interested. Hard to tell when they don’t talk! Either way, I fully recommend it for children! It will be a great book for them to read for themselves or to be read to them. 5 StarsFormat: E-Book On Amazon

Alice In Wonderland Review

I have loved Alice in Wonderland all of my life, but I have never read it myself. I was read it multiple times as a child. I’ve seen multiple variations of the movies. This is one of my favorite stories of all times! But, having never read it, I had to fix that while I could. Having things read to you is great. I should know. I’m a very avid audio book listener! I listen to audio books every second I can that I’m not able to physically read. It’s different actually reading it yourself. This is proof of that. I still adore the story. It’s still one of my favorites of all times. I’m sure it always will be. I dream of having a child who I can share the great story with. I hope they will love the tale as much as I do! 5 StarsFormat: E-Book From Serial Reads

Fight Club Review

Since this is a well-known classic, I’ll just get straight into my review without my normal formalities. I didn’t even want to review this book because I know how well loved this book and movie are. Well, at least the movie. I have yet to see the movie. I may actually watch it just because. I couldn’t even tell you why I haven’t seen it yet. I want to make it very clear that I loved the story itself. I loved the story behind it. I think I may even really adore the movie. I just couldn’t get past the repetitiveness of “Tyler says”. I swear I think I heard that a million times. I should probably go back and actually grab and read a physical copy of this book. And I may do that. I want to see if it is really written as confusingly as the narrator narrated it. I really hope not! It constantly switched points of view. I had to rewind it a few times to fully get some things.I still liked it, though. I still recommend it. I am ashamed of myself for having known about this for so long and never having read it or watched the movie. Don’t let my pettiness over repetitiveness and points of view steer anybody away from a potentially great read for them! Three StarsFormat: Audio Book

Everything, Everything Review

Madeline Wittier is a complete anomaly. She is literally allergic to everything. She is only safe and well in the comfort of her own home. Since she’s never known anything else, she’s okay with that. Until Olly moves in next door. The two strike up a friendship and she can’t help falling in love with him. That causes her to question everything. Can she continue being content with living in the safety of her own home? Or will the yearning for the outside world take its toll?I really adored this book. I saw it as an audio book on Scribd and I just had to get it! I listened to it all in just a few days. It was as beautiful as I thought it would be. I just adored all of the characters. I only wish that there were a few more characters in the book that had a bit of a bigger role. I also wish there could have been an extended ending. That’s all I will allow myself to say so I don’t give it away. As for the audiobook, I didn’t really care too much for the narrator. I mean she wasn’t horrible by any means. She just kind of sounded really hollow through many parts of the book. I also felt I was missing parts of the book due to sudden cut offs and it being thrown into the next chapter. Either way, I’ll be going back and actually reading this when I’m able.I fully recommend this book. Be prepared to completely become attached to another girl who’s sick trying to figure out how she fits in a world that seems to move on around her. Be prepared to have your heart melt for the adventurous Olly. I fell in love with this book the second I saw the beautiful cover. I’m so glad I got the chance to read it!

New Hobby + Thank You Readers + My New Approach

Before I show off what I’ve been up to lately, I want to take the time to say thank you so much to all of my readers. I’ve been very selfish on here, but I plan to change that. From now on, I’ll do more than just post blogs begging people to read. I’ll also interact with my readers. I’ll view and comment on their posts. I will show them just how thankful I am instead of just scripting it on my page. I have many dreams and I intend to stay humble and thankful no matter what.Now that that’s out of the way, I’ve found a new hobby. Has anybody tried the coloring apps? I have. I love them. They are very peaceful and relaxing. I have also enjoyed taking some of them to photo editor apps and making them even more special. I’d love to share some with you all. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed making them!

Love Octagon Review

Kevin thought he knew what he wanted. He wanted multiple wives so his house would stay clean constantly. Wouldn’t any many want such a luxury? Due to saving a woman in the park from a mugger, he finds his deepest desire come true. Soon that desire turns into a nightmare. Can he find a way to undo this wish or is he doomed to the mess he’s asked for?I really adored this story. I didn’t at first. It was kind of mind-numbing. It seemed a little fake. I chose to stick it out anyways. I’m so glad I did. It was hilarious and adorable. I loved every bit of it! This definitely shows that people can change and better themselves. My only wish is that I could have seen some of the work buddies and Angela more in the book. The audio book was great! The narrator did a great job. I loved his country accents on many of the characters. It kind of gave it a home vibe for me. It was a very impressive narration, to say the least. I’m amazed I got it listened to so fast!I fully recommend this book! It’s adorable! It’s clean! It’s wholesome! Let’s not forget about the fact that it’s so hilarious! There were many times I just couldn’t stop laughing! It’s a short and easy read, but it’s so worth it! 5 StarFormat: Audio Book

I think I’d do this for photography customers too.I plan to get equipment for making YouTube videos and recording for audio books. That’s been a dream of mine for awhile. I would also like to get camera equipment and take and sale photos still. These three things I’m very passionate about. I hope that I can turn these passions into a career. I’d also like to eventually try to do a podcast, but I need more research on that.I will also start writing more. The first thing on my agenda is to edit and shape up Spirit Rising for publish. I wrote it a couple years ago for my first #NaNoWriMo project. It’s the only one I finished. I think it’s time to get it together and write and publish.

Before I Fall Review

Sam has everything she could possibly want. She’s popular and everybody adores her. She has three amazing best friends. She even has a boyfriend who she’s been crushing on half of her life. That all changes when she winds up getting killed in an accident after a party. If that wasn’t bad enough, she winds up reliving the same day over and over. Is she doomed to live the same day forever or will she find the reason she’s living it and fix it?I really loved this book. It was intense and emotional. The character is very unlikable at first, but that changes over time. I won’t go into it because I don’t want to spoil it at all. The book gives you a lot to think over for sure. Expect to be emotionally gripped by the story from the start.There’s not really much I didn’t like about this book. I mean I wish things could have turned out differently, but saying exactly what would ruin this book for those who haven’t read it yet. So, I’ll just say I wish it would have been different and leave it at that. I also wish we could have seen certain scenes in a bit more detail.I fully recommend this book! It’s intense and emotional. It’s thought-provoking. I feel like I have a completely new look on life itself. This has been adapted recently to a movie. I can’t wait to see it and see if it goes along with the book. 5 StarsFormat: Physical Book

The Samurai’s Garden Review

Hanako Shimizu lost everything when her farm was raided. Her husband and father were killed and all of her crops were destroyed. Having to start over was bad enough, but being a woman trying to barter was a nightmare. Until Hiro Tanaka showed up and saved her. He lived life as an honorable warrior until his best friend died a horrible death. Will he be able to help her rebuild and find peace in his life? Will she be able to trust him after all she’s been through?This was an adorable book! I loved it. It was filled with hope and compassion. I fell in love with all the characters. If only it was longer so I could have kept enjoying the wonderful story! The only problems I had with the book are that I felt that some of the characters needed more place in the story. That’s just my opinion, though.The narrator did a fantastic job on this book. I actually would like to listen to more audio books by this lady. She gave all the characters their own personality. It was amazing to hear! I will be going back and actually reading this story. I do fully recommend this book! It was amazing! It was clean! It was wholesome. I loved the hope and the character development in it. This author did a great job in making the reader feel all the feelings the characters were going through I enjoyed it greatly and it’s a book I feel I could read over and over! 5 StarFormat: Audio Book
