Top 5 Must-Read Books By The End Of This Summer (Guest Post)

It’s that time of the year when millions of people decide to leave their homes and seek unforgettable summer adventures. Most of them are trying to find a perfect beach to cool off, others are more interested in fresh mountain air, and some of them are simply looking for a new local dating place where they can find a new romance. At the end of the day, all of these journeys require traveling. Now, it doesn’t matter if you’re traveling by plane, bus, or a train, you simply have to bring a few books to read in order to kill some time. Many people claim that books are the perfect companions for a summer adventure, so we decided to share 5 awesome books you absolutely must read by the end of this season.

Into the Water – Author: Paula Hawkins

If you’re looking for a chilling, exhilarating, and mind-blowing thriller for this summer, “Into The Water” should definitely be on your must-read list for this year’s vacation. This is the first novel Paula Hawkings wrote since “The Girl on the Train”. We waited a long time for her new masterpiece and it’s finally here. At the beginning of this thriller, a mother and a girl are found at the bottom of a river. You may think the cause of death is an accidental drowning, but the actual truth lies deeply buried in the past.

Men without Women – Author: Haruki Murakami

No one tackles the modern problems better than Haruki Murakami. This book is actually a collection of various and interesting stories about lonely and unfortunate men. A plastic surgeon who cannot look beyond his girlfriends’ physical flaws, a jazz enthusiast who becomes a barkeep after his wife cheats on him, and a man who wakes up as Gregor Samsa from Kafka’s Metamorphosis. Three unusual stories you will definitely find rather interesting.

The Half-Drowned King – Author: Linnea Hartsuyker

If you’re a fan of hit TV shows like Game of Thrones and Vikings, this book will knock your socks off. It’s a story about Ragnvald Eysteinsson who is betrayed by his avaricious stepfather. In order to reclaim his right to the throne, he pledges his sword to a young warrior who aspires to become the king. This revenge tale is full of noble heroes who are fighting for power. An extracting adventure that will wake up your inner Viking warrior.

Autumn – Author: Karl Ove Knausgaard

How can a book called “Autumn” be a good read for the summer season? Well, considering the fact that the summer is almost over, Karl Ove decided that the end of August is the perfect time to publish his story. Autumn starts with a short letter Karl writes to his unborn daughter. Through this piece, he’s trying to describe her the beauties and pitfalls of material and natural world. This book is the first part of the quartet that will be based on the four seasons.

Marlena – Author: Julie Buntin

Julie’s book tells a super realistic story of a troubled teenager named Cat who lives with her single mom in Michigan. Clearly dissatisfied with her life, Cat is slowly, but surely becoming rather depressed. Then, when she least expects it, a neighbour girl called Marlena enters her boring life. She immediately changes Cat’s daily routine by pulling her into the world of sex, drugs, and other vices. A perfect read for your summer vacation.

Top 5 Must-Watch TV Series by the End of This Summer (Guest Post)

Seeing as most of the action has been taken off the big screen and into our TV devices, it’s only natural that there are so many great shows out there to watch. So, instead of spending your summer checking what famous people on Snapchat are doing every day, why not binge-watch one (or more) of these awesome shows?

1. Game of Thrones

Yes, we are fully aware that the latest season of Game of Thrones is nearly over, however, that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to remind yourself of the good, old times when Sean Bean and Jason Momoa were still on the show.

The epic fantasy show has been running since 2011, with its second to last season broadcasting the final episode on August 27. HBO really outdid itself with this one, because it turned a somewhat well-known series of books into a global phenomenon full of sex, violence and freaking dragons we all know and love.

2. Rick and Morty

It may seem like a silly kid’s show, but it’s nothing of the sort – Rick and Morty follows the titular characters, a super-smart scientist and his not-so-smart grandson on their dark and hilarious adventures through many ridiculous scenarios.

This Adultswim animated show is currently airing its third season with four more episodes left. With Justin Roiland voicing both of the series’ main characters, you’re bound for one hell of a ride with this show

3. The Man in the High Castle

When it comes to alternative history, no TV show comes close to the Amazon Original The Man in the High Castle. Instead of the Allied Forces winning WWI, this show depicts an alternate North America that lost the war to the Nazis.

Season 2 of this show aired in December 2016, while its third season is yet to come to our small screens this year. That’s exactly why you should catch up to the story that features actors like Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls, and more.

4. Ozark

If you liked Breaking Bad, you’ll simply love Ozark. Imagine not only Walter White, but his whole family being in on the criminal activity whilst trying to avoid being murdered by a drug cartel – this pretty much sums up the plot of Ozark.

It just began airing this year with the finale of season 1 hitting our TVs in late July. Jason Bateman and Laura Linney are the main stars of this Netflix masterpiece, which means you absolutely have to binge-watch it while it’s fresh.

5. Lucifer

God, devil, religion – all of these are rather controversial topics, unless you hand them over to Fox and let them make a TV show about it. Lucifer tells the story of, well, Lucifer, who decided to quit ruling Hell by moving to Los Angeles on opening a night club.

The show is packed with amazing humour mostly coming from Tom Ellis, who plays the lead role, but it also features incredible acting and some awesome action scenes. Season 2 ended in late May this year, so better get on with binge-watching this masterpiece before the next season hits in October.

Top 5 Must-Watch Movies by the End of this Summer (Guest Post)

The favorite season of many is almost gone, paving its way to a golden brown fall. And what better way is to fight the re-emerging autumnal nostalgia that slowly but surely closes in on us but to head to a local movie theatre and see what they have on the menu? After all, the entire year of 2017 is basically a huge cinematic buffet – according to the sounding announcements we have all witnessed throughout the year at least. Still, there are some headlines that have just premiered or are expected to make grand debuts soon, so we’ve decided to choose the freshest 5 we believe are the must-watch movies by the end of this summer.

 

#1 Annabelle: Creation

Genre: horror/thriller/fantasy

Release date: 8/11/2017

 

The horror fans are already thinking highly of the second installment of Annabelle (the first one didn’t go so well), which is taking place in The Conjuring universe. Rest assured this one is definitely worthy of your time, especially if you’re into creepy themes and you still think that Chucky rules. Annabelle: Creation takes place 12 years after the horrid accident dollmaker and his wife had when they suffered a tragic loss of a daughter. Now, they decide to give a shelter to a nun taking care of the group of local orphans. After all, Annabelle is safely locked away so she can’t hurt anyone…can she?

 

 

#2 The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Genre: comedy/action

Release date: 8/18/2017

 

With stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds and Gary Oldman we believe there’s simply no room for failure. The Hitman’s Bodyguard bursts with action and jokes that entice a genuine laugh. It might not be an Academy award material but it’s still pretty fun to watch, especially in the summer, when hard subjects and dramas are certainly to be avoided by all means. So we warmly suggest you this story of a bodyguard who is supposed to protect a hitman who needs to testify in International Court of law because we’re sure you’ll have a blast.

 

 

#3 Dunkirk

Genre: historical

Release date: 7/21/2017

 

According to IMDb, this is the first film from Christopher Nolan that is actually based on historical facts. It takes place during the WWII, and it tells the story about allied soldiers from Belgium, the UK, and France being evacuated while they are completely surrounded by Germans. And we can all agree there’s no better way to wake up from that heat-caused, summer slumber than being shaken up by a strong story about sacrifice and survival.

 

 

#4 Spider-Man: Homecoming

Genre: sci-fi, adventure, action

Release date: 7/7/2017

 

We get to meet Peter Parker as a teenager while he tries to align his high school life with the one belonging to his alter-ego, Spider-man. On the other hand, the city of New York is threatened once again by new and stronger evildoers so the Spider-man must come to the rescue! It’s needless to say this is a great new achievement from Marvel Studio that is perfectly suitable both for younger and older audience.

 

 

#5 Tulip Fever

Genre: Romance

Release date: 9/1/2017

 

Now, this is something to look forward, especially if you’re an incurable romantic and crave the times when online dating services didn’t exist. The trailer promises everything: a gorgeous orphaned girl who is practically sold to a wealthy but old merchant who hires a young artist to paint his young but miserable wife in the 17th century when the entire city of Amsterdam got caught in the tulip obsession (hence the title). Keep in mind that Alicia Vikander is already an Academy award winner so we’re really expecting her to give us all she’s got in this one!

How Having A YouTube Channel Can Increase Confidence (Guest Post)

A lack of confidence is something we all struggle with, especially having confidence when public speaking. Somehow talking in front of fellow humans is terrifying for us. I struggled with this problem, I still do, but it has gotten better over the past year, mainly because I started my own YouTube Channel.

If you start a YouTube channel it will help your confidence for sure. You’ll get nervous and awkward in front of the camera at first but it will begin to feel natural. You will get comfortable talking to an imaginary audience and the camera will stop intimidating you.

I think this is an awesome way of boosting confidence. You learn to public speak and there is something about standing in front of a camera and talking to it. It’s scary and makes you nervous but if you do it enough, it will stop freaking you out and so will talking to other humans.

Plus you will not be afraid of being filmed. A lot of my friends are terrified of cameras and they get stressed out when filmed but honestly, it barely bothers me anymore. I’ve made a fool of myself on YouTube, nothing fazes me anymore.

Another thing is; it helped me overcome my shyness. I am still a pretty reserved person with strangers but I used to be a literal clamshell, an awkward turtle. I’m still an awkward turtle but a friendlier one.

If it stresses you out that other people are watching your videos, you can start by making them Private and as you improve be brave and click that button to make them Public!

Don’t even think about telling me that you don’t have a good camera. I use my mother’s and it isn’t the best either and I still make videos. You can even film yourself with your phone. As long as you have some editing software (you can find tons of cheap editing software, like Wondershare Filmora) you can make a decent video.

Now I know a YouTube channel is not for everyone, and I know that not everybody has time but if you struggle with confidence and have some free time I encourage you try this method out. It may take a couple months but having a YouTube Channel really helped me increase my confidence.

Leona Petrovic (aka ingirlwords) is a blogger (https://inkgirlandwords.wordpress.com/) she writes poetry and other inspirational posts.  She also loves reading and writing and created a YouTube channel based on these two things (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkhHM277Sv3R4n7i-NVH6Yw). She aspires to be an author and, maybe someday, an actor. She has written several articles for a local magazine and is currently obsessing over Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, the Infernal Devices, Falling Kingdoms, the Lunar Chronicles and the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, to name a few.

You can’t love for both (Guest Post)

Love is blind, as old proverb said. As much this sounds banal, it has sense. How many time you regret because this fatal hunk did not noticed you? How many times you were envious to lucky girl who got him? Rivalry is old as human species ,but it always has conflict with right on choice. Really, you might be Victoria secret model, winner of Nobel price or Paris Hilton, but if you are not in his heart, you just lose your time and act like masochist who is chasing impossible target. If you talk with your friends in coffee table about this topic, you will just find out simple truth : it takes two for love relation, and you can’t love for both if he has lack of feelings for you.

It is hard to understand this from your side, because heart speaks own truth, and maybe you got some signs that he indeed want you, but be careful, are those signs real or fake? Woman in love can’t see, for which area is she indeed chosen, for sex or relation? Men might fool women with lies as „you are perfect for me, rare diamond, not as other women“, but after hot night this diamond will stay in warehouse, because he only pleased to his wishes. Some women gain hope that this is only first stage, so they will even accept offer for sex but as intro in love story which will never happen.

Lydia fall in love in her neighbor Ted but he was narcissist. He never noticed her even she was pretty, smart and educated. She lost this game even Ted was dating with any kind of women, he was not so picky, he just wanted to increase number of women in his bed. Lydia was quiet because she knew inside of her that even if he asked her for a date, it will not last long. Ted got married with daughter of local entrepreneur.

Cynthia has choice between two guys, her high school sweetheart Ken, and guy from college, Henry. She chose Henry cause he gave her choice, he was not chasing her, even Ken was favorite candidate in her family. Henry gave her bigger freedom.

Rivalry is background for horrible stories, even crimes, because not everyone is able to understand that we can’t force love, and if you got NO answer all you can do is rise from the dust and ask for someone new. You can’t buy right of choice.

The worst you can do is beg or threat to someone who rejected you. You will be marked as desperate lady, maniac or stalker if you don’t give up.  Don’t play games, don’t gossip or try to set up to someone just to bring back your ex boyfriend. This is not solution, because it is not hard to reveal lies, and you will be bad guy in the end of his soap opera.

See some woman’s tricks to catch guy who is not into them:

Follow guy in social networks, create fake profiles just to talk with him.

Association with his friends, just to be in his circle, to dig useful info about him.

Try to get closer with his mom.

If you are business lady, a boss, you might copy Demi Moore in „Disclosure. „

Changing your outfit, in hope that he will notice your long legs or big boobs if you wear transparent shirt. Maybe you will be in his bed, but not in his heart on this way.

Make gossip about your competition. This is double game, cause your fatal potential boyfriend might reveal traps, and also your friend might leave you, cause you are person without ethics.

If you are blindly focused on guy who doesn’t give you single chance, you are in blind alley. This is elimination of every other man in your area, you can’t see them cause your heart is obstacle on this way. You are driver on road to hell, but if you move on right way, you might see road to paradise. Use your right on free choice, without fear that you will stay alone, because this fatal man doesn’t want you. In relation where just one side is in love, love doesn’t exist indeed. So here is no regrets for you, it doesn’t happen really, just in your fantasies.

Top 5 Movies That Deal With Dementia (Guest Post)

Movies that deal with real suffering of ordinary individuals are usually those that stick in our minds for years to come. Many older actors who have portrayed people affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia have gone on to win Academy Awards or nominations, and will forever be remembered in the history of cinema. The following is a list of some of the best films on memory loss and how it affects everyone involved.

5.   The Savages (2007)

Starring Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman, The Savages is a touching story about two siblings who reunite for the sake of their father who’s suffering from dementia. This tragic comedy yielded some wonderful performances and nominations, including Laura Linney’s Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). Tamara Jenkins was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

  1. Aurora Borealis (2006)

An indie movie released without much anticipation, Aurora Borealis is a story about a grandfather, (Donald Sutherland), who suffers from dementia and needs more care than his wife (Louise Fletcher) can provide. They hire a home health aide (Juliette Lewis) to assist, and enlist the help of their grandson (Joshua Jackson) to provide proper care to Sutherland’s character who believes he can see the Northern Lights through his window. Although Aurora Borealis has never received much praise from critics or moviegoers, it is one of those films where Donald Sutherland steals the show for the millionth time.

  1. Age Old Friends (1989)

John Cooper, played by Hume Cronyn, wonderfully portrays an elderly man who chooses to live in a retirement home to preserve his independence and not be a burden on his daughter, played by his real-life daughter, Tandy Cronyn. He becomes friends with Michael (Vincent Gardenia), who is diagnosed with dementia, and is faced with a tough decision when his daughter wants him to come live with her. Should he leave a rigid retirement home and go live with his daughter or should he stay to help out a friend in need?

  1. Iris: A Memoir of Iris Murdoch (2001)

Iris: A Memoir of Iris Murdoch is based on a book by John Bayley and a true story of English author Iris Murdoch’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease. This film will forever be remembered by its outstanding cast and its breath-taking performances. Jim Broadbent, who plays Bayley in his later years, won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor. Judi Dench and Kate Winslet both landed Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for their portrayals of Murdoch in her older and younger years.

  1. The Notebook (2004)

The Notebook is certainly the most famous of all the movies on this list, and for a good reason. Based on Nicholas Sparks’ bestselling novel of the same title, The Notebook might not have received as much praise from the critics as it did from the audiences around the world, but it will forever be adored as one of the most romantic movies of its generation that break down both young and senior dating and everlasting love that knows no boundaries. Featuring Gena Rowlands and James Garner, The Notebook tells a story of a loving elderly husband of Allie who is trying to rekindle her memories destroyed by Alzheimer’s disease. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play the couple when they were younger and their chemistry is out of this world.

Signs He’s Falling In Love (Guest Post)

Is your man distant and emotionally unavailable? Well, join the club! Joking aside, the local dating scene is packed with indifferent and frigid guys who simply don’t know how to express emotions. You probably experienced something like this with your own partner in crime, but there’s no need to panic. You have to remain calm and keep your eyes peeled for signs of love that will put your mind at ease. Below you can see the subtle hints that say – I’m in love with you, woman!

He Introduces You To His Closest Friends

A man’s “entourage” is like the extension of his family. Every guy has those couple of buddies that are like brothers to him. If your guy decides to introduce you to his best friends, well, you can stop worrying because he’s madly in love with you. Trust us, this is one of the biggest indicators of pure love and trust. Also, if his friends happen to like you and vice versa, you can start looking for a wedding dress.

Good Or Bad News – He Calls You First

Every single man out there has that special person with whom they share both good and bad news. However, this person doesn’t always have to be their girlfriend. If your partner feels comfortable enough to share the good and bad news with you, before he tells anyone else, you can be sure he loves you. This type of behaviour is a sure sign that he cares about you and that he trusts you more than anyone else.

He Spends Most Of His Free Time With You

Relationships can sometimes be rather demanding. Therefore, most guys out there are spending their free time with their friends or they simply choose to enjoy some much-needed “alone” time. You can’t blame your boyfriend for having the need to isolate himself every once in a while, but if he chooses to spend his precious free time with you, he is completely and utterly in love with you.

He Includes You In His Plans For The Future

Most men are deathly afraid of talking about the future with their significant others. They know that if they start planning ahead, it means things are getting pretty serious. However, if your man is ready to talk about your future together, you can be sure he’s in for a long haul.

He Introduces You With His Family

Men are usually pretty close with their moms and dads, and they don’t bring a lot of girls home to meet the parents. If he decides to introduce you to his beloved family, you have nothing to worry about, he’s mad about you. This is, without a doubt, one of the biggest signs your man is in deeply in love with you. It means he is sure about your relationship and that he wants to keep you in his life for a long time.
