Love is always one sided
The dead can seem impossibly perfect
But by far the worst thing we do to males - by making them feel they have to be hard - is that we leave them with very fragile egos. The harder a man feels compelled to be, the weaker his ego is.
And then we do a much greater disservice to girls, because we raise them to carter to the fragile egos of males.
We spend too much time teaching girls to worry about what boys think of them. But the reverse is not the case. We don‘t teach boys to care about being likable. We spend too much time telling girls that they cannot be angry or aggressive or tough, which is bad enough, but then we turn around and either praise or excuse men for the same reasons.
I really wanted to like this book, dystopian are usually my jam. I just feel like it was trying really hard to be the new hunger games. There were too many Parallels to be ignored. The territories (districts) , the omniscience president , a united land of craigluy(panem). For goodness sake there was even a off brand of Peeta and gale in Eric and Samuel. I absolutely hated Emma.
ames but it would be nothing without the forest. Often appearing to be living labyrinth intent on keeping all that enter. Which actually sort of reminded me of 2016 movie. The turn off for me when dealing with such a large cast and two storylines was the abrupt jump between the stories always happening at vital moments. Made me want to scream. The merging of the two was amazing the conclusion was insane and frustrating.
A tale of the snow queen by Jacques Stevens
There are two things I love, one is a good love story and the other is a kick-ass heroin saving the day. Kate wasn‘t exactly a bad ass but she definitely persevered and learned some “heartwarming” life lessons on her journey. All the characters had a Disney sort of quality to them as well as some real world problems that made them relatable. The story itself it‘s very thought out and written impeccably.
So in the first two chapter we are introduced to the two main character Livia Karras and Elliot Chiles. flashbacks play a crucial role in this story. You would definitely have a "ah ha moment" when the pieces start to fit together because of the bit of backstory. The subtle details also played a major role in contacting events with supporting characters and the main ones. I loved this book its what all pyschogical thrillers should hope to be.
I have to admit that this story was a slow burn for me. Every few chapters I was screaming at the girls to do something other than live what seems to be normal lives. Then it dawned on me that the big three was not exactly the main character's of this story. It this installment I felt like our leading ladies men took center stage.The story to me seemed like a slow burn. However the way it ended made me want to scream
This whole book isn‘t even about the main characters which is extremely confusing. They are very straight edge people that have a somewhat nefarious affiliation with criminal interprize. I did like the eccentricities of the hired “help” and really wanted to hear more from him. It ended and I just wanted a to know his deal so bad and half hopped she would fall in love with him or run away with him or want to learn from him. But no
The somewhat bumpy fairytale ending for our girl Lou. I thought the concept behind the Ever After series was really dope. The only issue I had is that I‘m such a fan of the sin series I felt like I was reading in with the intent of seeing some of those characters show and make their mark on the story. But of course I loved the story i loved how taking place in the same universe as other stories didn‘t over shadow Lou and Hutch‘s story.
Make no mistake about it. I will always love him and I will always want him. That is never going to change ever
Is it possible to die of a broken heart
Interesting twist on a old story. The main characters were all pretty well written. I was a little disappointed how some events in the story just happen without any real build up. I enjoyed the authors take on maleficent. Because sleeping Beauty isn‘t sleeping Beauty without a maleficent of some kind. I kind of wished the story ended on a cliff kinder. It was kind of a easy way out how it ended.
Not the best at leaving reviews
This was an amazingly written mystery novel. I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy. The story surrounds 3 missing girls and an abandoned baby. I loved this book because it‘s main character Jack isn‘t a typical main character mystery novel. I wasn‘t a fan of the story mainly because of the subject matter. It is incredibly well written definitely a page turner.
I actually thought that the teddy bears would play a part in a toy story sort of way. I was intrigued by the story right away when it became clear who the narrators was. The story is about two sisters whom both suffer emiotianl and mental abuse at the hands of authoritative figure. The story follows how the result of escaping that situation puts both sisters in much deeper waters.
The storyline was pretty interesting, I feel like it was written in a way that left a lot questions unanswered so you would read the next story in the series. I wasn‘t exactly a fan of some of the events escalating rather quickly without much explanation. For example the main characters relationship evolved from one extreme to the next. I would probably read the next set just to see if some of my questions get answered.
