Get Over Your Ex (Book Review)

About The Author

She is an indie author. Her native language is Croatian. She started with a blog where she described life situations like satire stories. Then she made a collection of 4 self-help books. After this, she decided to write short stories based on real events. She is between romance, drama, and thriller.

Amazon Summary

This is a book for women who passed through breakups. Find how to get over your failed relationship. Men might be interested how to face it with illusions about their ex-lovers. The previous relationship is sometimes the obstacle for a new romance.

Goodreads Summary

This book is written for women who passed through a hard break-up. You can enjoy in real stories with a dose of sarcasm. I wanted to inspire you to stand up and smile after your personal defeat. This book reveals both sides, how to handle a break-up and the pressure after you leave your partner.
It is not the same to be abandoned or to get out from a relationship. Here are examples and stories about couples who learn their lesson in a harder way.

My Thoughts

As you guys know I love supporting WordPress writers and Kristina is one of my favourites We have been friends for quite a while now and I always enjoy reading new books from her. It’s really inspiring and impressive how well she writes considering English isn’t her first language. I have been lucky enough to see her writing grow and evolve and this book was one of my favourite book from her so far.

This book is written to help women struggling with getting over their ex or moving on from a relationship. It is witty, sometimes anecdotal and amusing but underneath it all there is actually some solid advice on how to move on from a relationship because obviously this isn’t always an easy thing to do. It analysis different situations and gives advice on them and how to better deal with them.

I would definitely recommend checking out this book and all of Kristina’s other books too because she is quite a fascinating writer!

Strange Cars In The Night By Eric Keegan

About Eric Keegan:

Eric Keegan has been writing novels and screenplays since 2005 but only recently became an avid and enthusiastic reader. The two hundred books he has read in the past three years have helped him hone his own writing style. Eric likes to go against the grain when crafting his stories.

Eric currently works in manufacturing. When he isn’t working or writing, he seeks inspiration through his travels and in the great outdoors. He has never forgotten his Eagle Scout training and still finds nature a welcome respite from the stresses of daily life.

Amazon And Goodreads Summary:
Strange Cars in the Night is a savage debut poetry collection that moves at breakneck speed, written in the taste of a modern-day Hunter S. Thompson. It continues to unfurl Eric’s stream of conscious writing style onto the page and depicts an almost hallucinogenic recounting of what happens every night when the moon comes out to play.
My Thoughts:
I love reading poetry and this was one of those books with poetry that you just absolutely fall in love with. It’s written in a sort of stream of consciousness and it feels like you’re reading someones thoughts out loud. Instead of trying to prove a point or trying too hard these poems flow naturally.
Like I said in my last post I’m a really big fan of Keegan’s writing and I love his style. This book is probably my favourite book that I’ve read this year and I would definitely highly recommend checking it out!

The Dioramist By Eric Keegan (Book Review)

“Sometimes, when you take a rooted step out the front door, you feel like a song.”

About Eric Keegan:

Eric Keegan has been writing novels and screenplays since 2005 but only recently became an avid and enthusiastic reader. The two hundred books he has read in the past three years have helped him hone his own writing style. Eric likes to go against the grain when crafting his stories.

Eric currently works in manufacturing. When he isn’t working or writing, he seeks inspiration through his travels and in the great outdoors. He has never forgotten his Eagle Scout training and still finds nature a welcome respite from the stresses of daily life.

Amazon And Goodreads Summary:

The titular character in Eric Keegan’s The Dioramist is in the throes of a quarter-life crisis. He may only be in his midtwenties, but the dioramist finds himself lost and confused. He has spent so much of his time in an ill-defined relationship that he doesn’t understand himself apart from his partner.

When a friend suggests that he begin writing down his inner thoughts, hopes, and dreams, our hero sets off on an adventure that shows him a new passion in life. Writing becomes fundamental to his identity, but he isn’t sure if he has the courage to share his thoughts with the world.

At the same time, he struggles with his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Elizian. The two have been in a holding pattern for so long that neither is sure they’re ready to make the next step. As the writer gains enlightenment about his own life, Elizian will be inspired to seek out the same.

This intimate, personal look at one man’s journey shows the many different routes recovery can take and reminds you that it’s never too late to fall in love with something new.

My Thoughts: 

I loved reading this book. I’m just going to get right into it and say this was one of my favourite books I’ve read recently. I love Keegan’s flow and the way his books are so free and like a stream of consciousness.

It was also quite relatable because being in your twenties is so super confusing and scary but it’s also where you find yourself and realise what you really want in life.

I would definitely highly recommend checking it out!

About The Author

Prometheus Silver grew up in the beautiful Hudson Valley outside of New York. He left his home when he joined the United States Army. He now lives in Missouri with his four daughters and wife to be. He spends most of his days writing and having fun with his family.
My Thoughts
First of all I liked that it was not too long because I’m super busy very often but I still want to read but if the book is too long I kind of keep putting it off.  The genre is fantasy and the plot, characters and writing is all really great!
I also really enjoyed the plot of the book and I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll keep it short and simple. The plot is really fun and exciting and moves really fast which I love.
I also really liked the characters- they were fun, unique and a bit crazy (in a good way). I liked The Rat character because it was colorful and exciting and rebellious.
The story was definitely exciting and keeps you wanting to read more. It definitely is super well written and the descriptions were also really imaginative and fun to read.
If like me you want to read but not something that’s too long this is absolutely perfect for you. Especially if you’re a fan of the fantasy genre.

Life Story

Erin was born in Kansas City, Missouri and later moved to the small town of El Dorado Springs (That’s El
Do-RAY-Do), Missouri where she spent most of her life.
In 2007 she moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia and graduated from Germanna Community College with honors. If that wasn’t enough… she decided to enroll in courses at Mary Washington University and earned a Bachelor’s in English, Linguistics, and Communications in 2015.

Writing

From there, she published her first novel “Synchronicity” and only lost a small portion of hair from stress.
In 2017, she published the sequel, “Menoetius”, and in 2018 she became fed up with a teeny-tiny copyright incident and collaborated with other authors from the writing community to compile a multi-
genre anthology entitled “Cocky-Tales”. She is currently working on “Forbidden” to be published this winter.

Erin’s writing has placed in a variety of competitions including second place in the Sudden Denouement
Divergent Literature Competition and the CN International Flash Fiction Competition, and most recently,
her piece “The Final Battle” placed first in her heat in round one of the 2018 NYC Midnight Short Story
Competition.

In 2017, Erin was invited to sit on not only the Horror/Sci-Fi/Fantasy writer’s panel at the Fredericksburg
Independent Book Festival, she also sat on the YA panel. In February 2018, she joined the judging panel
for the CN International Pens of Roses Flash Fiction Competition and in March, joined another author
panel in Richmond, Virginia.

Erin works as an editor at FunDead Publications and offers free-lance editing on the side.

Film/TV

Think you’ve seen Erin on TV? You betcha!
Erin got her start as a contestant on Netflix’;s hot new baking show, “NailedIt!”. Following that experience,
she can be found on a variety of Investigate Discovery shows including “Unmasked” and “Dead of Night”.
Erin’s also worked on a couple of independent films due out next year.

When She Walked Away

As a survivor of domestic violence, Erin strives to give back to the community that offered her the support
and encouragement to not only leave her situation but to find her voice. This is what led to the founding of When She Walked Away. A small, but steadily growing community that places direct emphasis on
providing encouragement, information, and support to women and children who have experienced or are
experiencing domestic violence.

Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!

Happy Birthday to one of my favourite writers!

Kathy Cherry Books

Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775 in England.  She authored six books and these books continue to be revered today. Her books include Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park.

Jane’s father encouraged her writing back then and even bought her expensive paper and pencils even when the family needed the extra money. She used her father’s library frequently by reading lots of books.

I distinctly remember reading Pride and Prejudice many, many years ago. I loved that book! I dreamt about meeting my own Mr. Darcy some day. But, I also remember Jane’s great sense of wit and wisdom in her writing throughout her novels.

Enjoy a few quotes from Jane Austen’s works:

“It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
Sense and Sensibility

“I declare after all…

The City of Saints: The Hood Series Book Review

The City Of Saints

“Because a ten-year-olds will to freedom is a greater threat to monarchy then weapons are.”
“I have a mind of my own, but I am not allowed to think for myself.”

Amazon- 4.7 out of 5 stars

Summary:

In a dystopian world, cyborgs have taken over. To escape persecution and genocide, a ten-year-old girl, Nuha Edel must run away from a war her elders have started. With the spread of an unknown disease and the rise of anarchy, Nuha tries to flee from the wreckage of war but instead ends up in the arms of the cyborgs, who are programmed to kill her kind.

The real problem erupts when Nuha realizes that the war she’s running away from is a part of who she is. Being born different is not a blessing but a curse and the only way to uplift that curse is to fight or fall, and Nuha is ready for neither.

The City of Saints is an unforgettable tale of kinship and betrayal, enmity and forgiveness. It transports the reader into a future where artificial intelligence and humans are fighting for humanity and morality. A future steeped in blood and revenge, loyalty and remedy. It explores how history has the ability to resurface, no matter how deeply it is buried.

GoodReads-  4.0 out of 5 stars
Summary:

After the second treaty was broken by the hoods, the cyborgs waged for; killing whoever came in their way. Its history repeating itself all over again with bans, segregation, alliances and peace treaties.

Nuha Edel, a ten-year-old girl finds herself trapped in a war her elders had started. She goes on a journey to find her father who had disappeared six months ago. But stumbles upon Specialized Assassin Military-bot, SAM who vows to protect her. On their path to safety, SAM and Nuha meet an old man, Xander who is greatly affected by a water-borne disease. Can a ten-year-old girl, a cyborg, and an old man find an escape from the extinction of mankind?

About The Author:

A. Rinum was born in Kharian, Pakistan. She moved to the United States when she was four years old but moved back to Pakistan at the age of eight. When she was fourteen years old, her family decided to move back to the states again. Currently, she lives in New York City and is obtaining her Bachelors in Biochemistry. Rinum started writing at the age of ten and is currently working on a poetry book.

My Opinion:

So I’m going to try really hard to review this book without giving away any spoilers because I felt like one of the best parts of reading the book was the twists and turns.

To begin with I thought this was a really great book overall. The writing was good, the plot was unique and fascinating and the characters were inspiring and relatable. I have been a really big fan of dystopic books since I was in high school and one of the themes we had to write on was dystopia. I think that was one of the reasons I really enjoyed the book.

The character of Nuha was a really great one too since she is a ten year old which brings out her innocence and purity. The rest of the characters are also easy to bond with and be empathetic to.

The plot was really interesting and I think the story line is really great. It’s one of those books that takes unexpected turns and twists that leave you wanting more.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of dystopic novels or futuristic books. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of dystopia I would still recommend checking out this book I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

The Guy From Another League by Kristina Gallo

GoodReads Blurb:

This is a book about a girl who made a wrong choice. It will bring her humiliation and disgrace. Her relationship will bring out the worse from her. She will gamble with her reputation, lose her friends and dignity. All for the guy who just wanted the one-night stand.

My Thoughts:

Before I start this I just want to appreciate the fact that Kristina’s first language is not English yet she has managed to publish a number of books in English which I think is really inspiring!

I am not a fan of books about love and relationships in general so I was slightly skeptical about this one. However, I knew that it would be interesting since I have read other works written by Kristina and I was impressed with them. As expected I was pleasantly surprised by this one too.

The book is about a girl, Renata, who falls in love with a man, Davon, who clearly doesn’t want the same things as her from the relationship. It’s eye opening and beautifully realistic. If you’re sick of reading about super feminine women who are portrayed unrealistically this is definitely the book for you. I would definitely recommend it and even if you usually don’t read these sort of books in general.
