#bookreview … Fractured by Elle Charles

FracturedFractured by Elle Charles

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I am really sorry that I have to give this review but it’s better to be honest right? Would I recommend this book? For the moment no…because I did not finish it. However I’m writing a review now because I will probably not finish it.

I just lost my interest when Kara (after having a terrible childhood because of her father) falls for a man to the point that she does exactly what he says. On top of it, she still stays in contact with her parents after everything they put her through and no matter how hard I’m trying to get over this fact I just can’t accept it.

There are moments in life where we need to be strong and leave behind people that hurt us even though they are family. Yes I know that this is just a book but even more for this reason Kara should have been stronger.

Thanks for reading!

#bookreview … He Counts Their Tears by Mary Ann D’Alto

He Counts Their TearsHe Counts Their Tears by Mary Ann D’Alto

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The author gave me the book for free for an honest review. And here it comes my review. πŸ™‚

I must say that it was an easy read. The story grabbed my attention from the beginning. There were not many characters to focus my attention on which I really like in a book, because when there are too many names I lose focus and I am not sure anymore who should I pay attention to. (yes..I am funny like that :D).

Aaron, he is scary. Beautifully scary. Thinking that there might be people out there that do what Aaron does makes me want to pay attention to every single person in my life. The only dangerous thing is that you can never know what Aaron is up to because he manipulates people so well that in the end they don’t know what they are doing anymore.

This character is so strong from all points. He has physical beauty on his side which is the first step in his game and after, the others are so lost in his game that it is too late for them to back away. I don’t want to give many details about the book if you do decide to read it, however I must say that the game he is playing is dangerous and he knows it but it is the only way he actually feels alive.

The only part that I didn’t really liked was that at times there was too much repetition. I had the impression that information that was already given was just repeated too many times and I was rushing through those parts to go faster to the story.

I will give this book 5 stars regardless of the part that I didn’t like just because the story was brilliant and Aaron really drew me to him even though he was just a fictional character. He did scare me though. πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading!

Selfish, Manipulative, Egocentric

Egocentric, manipulative and selfish. These are things that I can’t stand in a person. Do you know anyone in your life like this? Are they close to you? If yes, keep in mind that these are toxic people. These are the people that make you feel worthless and like this you feed their ego.

People like this think they are perfect. In their mind they are never wrong. In their mind they are always the victim. And if the world stops turning around them even for a second, they will do anything to get back the attention.

At first sight they look so friendly, so happy, so sincere. The moment they feel threatened by you they show their real face. Most of the time they won’t show their real face to you. No! They will manipulate people around you so that you seem the problem while they’re just the victims.

Egocentric, manipulative and selfish. These are the most dangerous people. Stay away from them. Don’t feed their ego.

Thanks for reading.

#bookreview … Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons WhyThirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Little did I know when I read this book that is going to be such an impact.

This is one of those books that makes you reflect and think about life and the way you treat people. It also makes you wonder if ever someone was hurt because of something you said or did. Maybe sometimes your actions or words are not intended to hurt someone. But they do. So, what do you do then?

The teenagers in this book are all hurting in some way or another. This is a story that must open our minds and our eyes. This is a story that must help us understand that bulling has to stop no matter if it happens at school, at work or in any other social circumstance.

I suppose that this book made me be a better person!

Thanks for reading!

#bookreview … The Black Market by Kiki Swinson

I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

I started to read the book and it sounded promising. I was very excited and couldn’t put it down. The story and the way it develops is interesting. It starts with this girl that looks inoffensive and innocent and you slowly realize that ambition can change anyone in anything.

I didn’t understand why the caracter wasn’t phisically described. It was like we had to imagine from the way she talked the way she looked. Also, the ending is not what I was expecting.

Overall is a great read.

Thanks for reading.
