It’s just too easy to fake a smile…
Plot: One? is the first book in a contemporary fiction trilogy, looking at finding ‘the one’ in the modern world and how relationship models are shifting in the most innovative period in living history. The story starts in 2005, and spans ten years following the characters from the challenges of their twenties into their thirties. ( read more here )
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this book from the author for an honest review. And here it goes. 😊
It was a bit hard in the beginning to get used to the style of writing. I believe that I never read a book in which the author was going deep into the characters mind. Even though in the beginning it was strange to read their thoughts, once I got used to it it was actually pretty interesting and I appreciated the fact that I can know what was going on through their mind.
It’s hard to stay positive when such bad things happen in the world.
I want to think that all is happening for a reason but some things just don’t have a justification…
What reason can rape have?
What reason can mistreating others because of their skin color have?
What reason can killing because other has different beliefs have?
….is everything really happening for a reason or is this just a good excuse so we can move forward with our eyes closed?! 🤷♀️😐
While struggling with my reading, for no particular reason, I thought that writing about different topics might keep me connected with you all. There are so many interesting subjects that I want to write about and I hold myself because I’m afraid that I might offend someone with my words.
Today’s topic is pretty simple yet pretty intense: feelings of an immigrant. 🤷♀️
I moved to Canada some years ago at 19 years old. At that time my parents gave me the choice to stay in Romania but with the possibility that I might not see them for a long time and if I ever want to join them the immigration process might be long and complicated and not necessarily positive. Because I am very close to my mother and I couldn’t imagine myself living far away from my family, I decided to follow them and move an ocean away.
Why am I the first one to stand up for others but I can barely defend myself?!
Does it happen to you that as soon as you see someone getting hurt you are there next to them trying to lift them up? Do you do the same thing for you? You deserve some kindness too!!
Now let my brain get the last part of the above…🤔🤷♀️
