#bookreview … Blue Is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh, Ivanka Hahnenberger

Blue Is the Warmest Color

Blue Is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In a world in which we are not always allowed to be ourselves, Clementine is a simple girl who lives a normal life and even though she feels she is different from her friends she doesn’t really understands why.

As soon as she sees Emma by accident on the street she starts to understand why she feels she is so different from everybody else. Emma grabs her attention immediately and after the first time their eyes meet she cannot stop thinking about her and about her blue hair.

As their story continues things get a bit complicated and by the end, the story became very emotional and I was not able to contain my tears.

Be prepared to hate, to love and to cry, and be prepared for the really graphic sex images that happen in the book. Just saying…so you won’t be too shocked. πŸ˜€

Thanks for reading. πŸ’•πŸ“–

#bookreview … Royal Savage (Savage & Ink, #1) by Victoria Ashley

Royal Savage (Savage & Ink, #1)

Royal Savage by Victoria Ashley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I remember reading this book some years ago. At that time the author sent me the book for an honest review and I remember loving it so much that I finished it really fast and I needed some time to recover after it. I am not sure what attracted me to it: the bad boy (kinda wants to be good for the sake of love), all tattooed and with many problems or the cute girl who always gets attracted by the bad boy. The thing is that at that moment I really liked it.

Last week I recommended this book to my friend and I realized that I don’t have it anymore (it was a kindle edition) so I decided to buy the paperback. And I started to read it again…and I am so disappointed. I can’t get into the story this time. I find it so cheesy and the language is so bad. I find that the book does not have that ”je ne sais quoi” to keep me going so I simply stopped reading it. I can’t continue and I can’t understand what made me love it so much the first time that I read it. I find that Royal is so ‘savage’ 😁 and I am not sure how a girl like Avalon would accept to be spoken to in such a bad way. Yes, he does stuff for her and he protects her in so many ways but he is still so rough with women. I suppose that there is a moment in life when women accept that kind of behavior and they find it attractive. But to me, that kind of behavior is not acceptable anymore.

Maybe I just changed over the years and maybe after I read more books my expectations got higher somehow. I will leave the review at five (5) stars (on Goodreads) because I feel bad changing it, since the first time that I read it I loved it so much. But in reality, right now..I find that it only deserves two (2) stars. Continue reading “#bookreview … Royal Savage (Savage & Ink, #1) by Victoria Ashley”

Tu spui ca amandoi am fi gresit
Vei sa impartim vina la doi
Si contempland la minus infinit
Aduci un teatru de razboi

Mi-ai spus ca o sa doara putin
Ca o sa doara si o sa treaca
Dar ai plecat asa senin
Tu om cu inima de piatra
Mi-ai spus ca o sa doara putin
Ca o sa doara si o sa treaca
Dar ai plecat asa senin
Tu om cu inima de piatra

Kindred Spirit…write a letter to free your soul…πŸ’•

Hello there,

As I’m lying in my bed thinking about how my life turned out to be so different than what I thought it would, I’m thinking about love and how it feels to feel loved. I forgot about this feeling. I can’t remember those butterflies and those feelings when my heart skips a beat or the anticipation of seeing the loved one.

While I’m contemplating about everything and nothing at all I remembered about the Kindred Spirit mail box. πŸ’• This is a mail box in North Carolina, placed on a beach full with letters of any kind. The box doesn’t belong to anyone in particular and there is no mailman that comes to pick up the mail. You go and either read the letters or write a letter of your own and leave it there. I wish I could go and visit, it sounds so romantic and so deep and inspiring.

I did find however a Kindred Spirit mail box online. πŸ˜ŠπŸ€— I found it by browsing Nicholas Spark’s website and it’s full with amazing letters. Some are so emotional that made me cry like a baby. Others are so full of hope and love. But what really amazed me is to read so many letters for the “first love”. There are so many people out there still thinking to that first pure love and still thinking to the “what if…” It breaks my heart to think that so many people remained all their life with this regret.

If you want to read the letters or write a letter of your own here is where to go: Kindred Spirit Online . You can be anonymous so feel free to put down all emotions that you feel like are holding you down.

Thanks for reading! I hope you live a life full of love…

#bookreview … Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks

Every Breath

Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I finished this book this morning and I feel that I need some time to recover.

While at the beginning of the book, Nicholas Sparks mentions that this is based on a true story, by the end there is a slight twist of events. I am a bit disappointed but thinking that I know of a true story which shows that this kind of story is possible I regained my confidence that somewhere in this world this type of love is actually possible.

While reading, I fell in love, I smiled, I cried and I was terribly heartbroken. I felt a twinge of jealousy at this love so pure and so sincere. This type of love is probably almost impossible or it happens to few people in the world. I like to think that I’m wrong and that this love can actually exist and stay even after the years pass and the routine settles.

Hope and Tru are the couple that makes you wonder if you ever loved even if you think you did. They are so perfect together, they are so perfect that it makes your heart ache. I felt a bit upset with Hope thinking that she is making so many mistakes, but I remembered that in the end she is human and we all make mistake, and we all have regrets.

I can’t wait for a movie. I really loved this book. No wonder Nicholas Sparks is my favorite author. He always make me live the story like I’m part of it. I definitely recommend this book. You will not be disappointed. And, I believe a trip to Kindred Spirit is a must now. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸ“–

Thanks for reading!

My favourite writer just came in the mail…ok…not him just his books πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ“š

I just got a box full of books…I mean that is the treasure right there. The mailman could actually see the joy on my face when he handed me the box. I looked on the window all day long..and he finally came…with books by my favorite writer…Nicholas Sparks.

Thank goodness that my hubby is not home to see that I bought books…again…😊

But they are so beautiful and I can’t wait to read them all…

See my Instagram video

Problem…I’m already in the middle of a book so I must finish that one before, and second problem…how am I going to be able to choose which book to read next…these are definitely reader problems πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Or 🍾 problems…

Who is your favorite writer? And how do you choose your next read?

Thanks for reading!
