Bird Box book Review

🤔🤔🤔Where do I start with this review. I feel a little cheated. The book is slightly better than the movies but it had its faults too. The description of Tom in the movie compare w Tom in the book Is completely different which it annoy me a little bit.But then we go to Gary. I was expecting more out of him. The Gary in the book was brutal.

I felt like it dragged in some parts.But over all a decent read. Good way to start the year❤️❤️

*The first book in the series is THE CLEANER. This book is about Gunner. Gunner cleaned crime scenes for a living but when one of the crime scenes he had to clean was connected to a pass he tried to leave behind he was forced to go back to his hometown where he swore he never would go back to.

My review:

    I wasn’t prepared for this story I must admit. it has sooo many twists and turns that had me wanting more. my heart was beating fast. The story between Gunner and Reagan was beautiful and funny. Everything they had to endure just to be together was amazing. I loved every single part of this book.

Reagan the rich popular girl. The princess, the good girl. Gunner the handsome bad boy but together they are perfect. Especially for each other💜

*The second book of the series is THE HEALER. In here we get to know Jesse and Quinn. They have been best friends since they were little kids but now they are learning a new feeling for each other but they are scared and trying to deny it. But danger lurks in every corner…

My review:

    Uff. Where can I start? This is the second book of the lesser series. This is the story of Quinn and Jesse. This book made me feel so many different emotions all at once. I travel inside their world. I wasn’t expecting that huge twist at the end and I even cry like a baby at one point. Great book! Any book that makes me feels as many emotions as this one is worth a read and a recommendation. Read this book you won’t regret it!

*The third book in the series is THE LIAR. In this book, we meet Fletcher. Living a life full of secrets and lies. His first lie was his name. His real name is not Fletcher. He is hiding from his past in plain sight and everything going well until he meets Vaida and falls in love with her. Vaida who is also running from a dark past and now they must confront their past together.

My review:

   Damn! This one was a hard an emotional book! I couldn’t put it down though, I need it to know what was in store for Fletcher and Vaida. I laughed at his awkwardness while he tries to hit on her but cry as I found out about her life. The Messes series is amazing we have Gunner James, Jesse, Fletcher I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us.😍

*The Fourth and last book of the series is THE PRISONER where we meet Fiona. Fiona has been hurt by many including her own parents. She has some secrets that she can’t tell anyone because she wants to protect those who she loves the most. Even if that causes them to hate her.

my review:

        Reading Fiona’s story completely broke me. Her life and past were horrid. It was so hard for her to trust anyone and even worst to let anyone love her or let them in. And then he meets Logan who was also trying to run away from his demons. Will they destroy each other? Or will love save them both!

     😭😭😭😭I can’t believe is over! I love this series so much! The Prisoner was the last book of the series and I’m broken-hearted to have to say goodbye to Gunner, Gia, and Gavin. They went through so much in their life. Their stories were so painful, I will miss this messy family that’s for sure.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

I must confess that when I started this book I was a bit hesitant to it. Hearing mix reviews and all. At first, I thought it would be about just his walk to find her but no it was so much more. It was a second chance for him, a way for him to fix his wrongs from his past. A way for him to forgive himself for his mistakes. This was a deep and sad journey but a beautiful one altogether. And my favorite part was how Harold and Maureen found their way back to each other. I’m glad I pushed my self to finish, other wise I would have missed a beautiful well-written story.

Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack of quotidian minutiae is a letter addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl from a woman he hasn’t seen or heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye.

Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then, as happens in the very best works of fiction, Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person. And thus begins the unlikely pilgrimage at the heart of Rachel Joyce’s remarkable debut. Harold Fry is determined to walk six hundred miles from Kingsbridge to the hospice in Berwick-upon-Tweed because, he believes, as long as he walks, Queenie Hennessey will live.

Still, in his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold embarks on his urgent quest across the countryside. Along the way, he meets one fascinating character after another, each of whom unlocks his long-dormant spirit and sense of promise. Memories of his first dance with Maureen, his wedding day, his joy in fatherhood, come rushing back to him—allowing him to also reconcile the losses and the regrets. As for Maureen, she finds herself missing Harold for the first time in years.

And then there is the unfinished business with Queenie Hennessy.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

There is so much controversy behind this book and television show.​ I decided i would check it out.​ Here is my likes and dislikes.​

Likes:

The fact that it speaks about something very real thats happening in the schools everywhere.​ Many kids are ending their lifes because of bullying.​

dislikes:

They didnt excecuted right.​ The message is taken out of this is that no adult will ever listen to you.​ No one wants to talk because the jocks are untouchable.😱what?​ when i was in high school a jock grabbed my boobs with out consent and you better believe i spoke up!​ He got suspended and kept away from me.​

You got to talk to your kids and let them know what’s right and wrong and also tell them that if the school won’t listen to them you as parents will and that they are not alone!

this book was hard to read.​ the dialogue was hard to understand at first.​ Then the suicide that Hanna committed in the book and the one on the show was so different.​ The one on the show was so much brutal.​ It makes me wonder why they changed it.​ ratings perhaps?​ which to be honest it defeats the purpose of the whole show.​ according to the creators, this show is to race awareness of what’s happening out there.​ And yes I agree that a lot of parents, teachers needs to be aware of it but they didn’t deliver the message right.


You can’t stop the future. 

You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why. 
 
Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

From Booklist

When Clay Jenson plays the cassette tapes he received in a mysterious package, he’s surprised to hear the voice of dead classmate Hannah Baker. He’s one of 13 people who receive Hannah’s story, which details the circumstances that led to her suicide. Clay spends the rest of the day and long into the night listening to Hannah’s voice and going to the locations she wants him to visit. The text alternates, sometimes quickly, between Hannah’s voice (italicized) and Clay’s thoughts as he listens to her words, which illuminate betrayals and secrets that demonstrate the consequences of even small actions. Hannah, herself, is not free from guilt, her own inaction having played a part in an accidental auto death and a rape. The message about how we treat one another, although sometimes heavy, makes for compelling reading. Give this to fans of Gail Giles psychological thrillers. Dobrez, Cindy

Candy by Justin M. Woodward

This book is amazing. Definitely not what I was expecting. Author Justin M. Woodward has a excellent mind and great amount of talent which shows in his work. This book got my attention from the start. It was so good I didn’t even stop reading to eat. I was at the edge of my seat the whole time and my heart was racing faster with each chapter I read. I started hating Candy but at the end I loved her. You should definitely read her story.

Excuse me if I’m feeling sentimental.
I might die tonight.

My name is Candy Tran. Before I was hunting down serial killers and feeding men to alligators, I was a normal, church-going, tax-paying citizen. Before all of this. I’ve been given a chance to tell my story, so please, listen closely. This is going to take a while.

Candy is a wild, humor-filled, neo-noir romp across america. For fans of Chuck Palahniuk and films like Seven Psychopaths and Pulp Fiction.

The Wayward Witches by Candace Osmond

Halloween 🎃 is among us and we cannot have a Halloween 🎃 with out witches. So let me tell you about the best witch series I have read in a very long time.

Is sexy, exciting and heart felt. I completely fell in love with this series from the first book. It’s addictive, you are left wanting more until you devour the whole series. Yes I’m talking about The Wayward Witches. You would not be sorry 🙂

Do you dare to enter this amazing and very sexy world? The adventure begins with

A stolen Hear: Lenora

Dark, Gory, and Totally Sexy! Start the #1 Bestselling Dark Paranormal Series with Lenora in A Stolen Heart!

“I can feel the power of the Earth flowing through my veins as it has for hundreds of years, inching me closer to permanent immortality. Soon, it will be a part of my very being, every fiber of my body will be immortal, not just clothed in it. All I have to do is complete the ritual and I’ll stop at nothing to do so. Just one more key ingredient.

A stolen heart.”

Lenora, leader of the Wayward Witches, has roamed the Earth for hundreds of years, searching for her coven not yet born. Now, with just one sister shy, Lenora and the other witches prepare what they can for the ultimate ritual, the one that will bring them eternal immortality. 

But can she keep her younger coven sisters in line? And will they find the fourth addition to their circle or will it all fall apart before it’s even begun?

A Betrayed Heart: Ridley

“The power of fire burns through my veins just as the desire to be immortal does in my mind. It’s all I can think about. It’s all I want. Well…besides Jean Paul, the sexy French businessman I sleep with in secret. 

Too bad he’s my best friend’s husband. Bianca’s affinity for water would surely douse my flame, but it’s the price I’ll pay for helping her let go of her mortal ties. Without Bianca, the ritual for immortality is nothing more than a dream.”

Ridley, the youngest of The Wayward Witches, struggled to control her raging power and the flame which burns beneath her skin. But fate brought Lenora, an ancient witch, to cross her path and join the quest for eternal immortality. Now she just has to keep her cool while they collect the ingredients they need, then she’ll have the rest of eternity to learn from Lenora.

As long as the three witches can find a fourth to complete their circle before it’s too late.

A Hardened Heart: Bianca

“Like my mother before me, the unstoppable force and power of water fill every inch of my body, aching to be set free. But, I was raised to hide my gift from the world, trained to live a mortal life and for years I believed that was the right way to live. 
Until the only thing tying me to this mortal world, my beloved husband betrayed my love and hardened my heart.”

Scrambling for her husband’s affection, Bianca has had enough. Finally, she opens her eyes and considers the fact that he may be cheating. She just never thought it would be with one of her best friends. Now she can finally sever the thing that tethers her to this mortal life and fully invest in her coven’s quest for immortality. 

But will her unexpecting husband survive the wave that’s headed straight for him? Will Bianca have his death on her hands?

A Perpetual Heart: Sloan

For years, the unyielding power of air has tried to force its way out, seeping through my pores and commanding me to let go, to stop stifling it and just be free. But I can’t. I won’t do that to my sister. Jacey wants nothing to do with the magical world we come from, and I have to respect her wishes. 

Even though she possesses more power in a single finger than an entire coven of witches.” 

Sloane, the air elemental, floats through life behind a cloak. Shielding the world from her abilities. All because her sister Jacey is too afraid of her own powers to join in. But now Sloane has found Lenora and the coven of wayward witches, a place where she’s accepted. A place she can call home. 

But they’ll need the aid of Sloane’s reluctant sister if they truly want to complete the ritual for immortality that they’ve all worked so hard towards. 

Can they convince Jacey to help? Or will everything be swept away in the wind?

A Reluctant Heart: Jacey

All my life, I stifled the dark power hidden deep inside me. What would I do with magic like that? With abilities beyond comprehension? And would I control the powers…or would they control me? But I fear my days of hiding are over. My sister Sloane and her new-found coven of wayward witches desperately need my help to complete their ritual of immortality. I agreed on one condition: that they take my powers afterward.

But can I manage the magic seeping to the surface? Or will my greatest fear come to life?”

Jacey had always refused to use or even accept her magic abilities. At a young age, she realized just how much more power she had than her sister Sloane. She knew then that it wasn’t normal. Even for a witch, she would be the odd one out. The best she could do was live a normal life and squash the internal struggle to use her magic.

But the time has come. She can no longer ignore what’s there, right under the surface of her skin dying to get out. Can she keep it under control long enough to complete the ritual of immortality? Or will her dark magic suck them all into oblivion?
