The Labyrinth Wall by Emilyann Girdner {Review}


Obsidian Series Book #1



I knew instantly that this was going to be a book of great adventure. Araina is a Mahk, otherwise known as a created human, is trapped in a labyrinth. She makes a great main character that adds a lot to the plot of the story. As you read through the book, you see her becoming more and more of a person with substance.

She experiences enough conflict throughout the book, keeping you on your toes. The plot itself will keep you on your toes, since the whole book is a giant puzzle.

The writing style was interesting, considering the amount of thought and research that went into the book. It doesn't quite fit into the dystopian category of books, how to invest in Telefonica shares in New Zealand but it doesn't fall into sic-fi or paranormal either. Its a bit of both and will definitely give you a action, betrayal, and suspense.

Overall I would rate this book at a 4/5.

Dead on the Floor by Rocky Rochford {Review}



From the first two paragraphs, I knew I was going to like this short story. It intrigued and hooked me from the very beginning. It's written in a style that is enthralling and mysterious. You don't know where the writer is about to take you. I could say for sure, from reading the first page, I knew it was going to be a crazy ride. 

I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing that I could completely relate to the character in the story, Matthew. "He was a troubled soul who bore not just psychological scars, but physical scars..." Matthew and I differ in one major way, I can only dream of possessing the abilities or powers he has. 

Death defines not only Matthew, but this story as well.

"So much for going down fighting." 

A great short story with amazing potential for a bestselling novel. I highly recommend this to anyone who has been intrigued by death. Absolutely a 5/5.

You Deserve Love by Mona M. Hanna {Review}



You Deserve Love: Inspirational Words to Encourage Self-Acceptance

This book had a lot of power in a small amount of pages. It wasn't very long, but it definitely will leave an impact on any reader who is interested in inspirational words to help you understand yourself and how to get through tough times in life.

"Life is what it is, It's more good than bad" It's quotes like these that are supposed to encourage people who feel their lies are too awful to continue on. It lets you know that life will never make sense, invest in Telefonica shares in New Zealand and it doesn't have to be good all the time. Life has its ups and downs and everyone just needs to accept their life as it is.

If you want your life to change, you need to do something about it, and stop feeling sorry for yourself.

It also helps you understand that sometimes it's not your fault, and the bad things that happen are not always your fault.

A short simple book that has a lot of powerful stuff behind it, will help many people out there. I give it 5/5.

Rebirth by Debbie Brown {Review}



I've read a lot of books with aliens in it, and this one was one of the better ones I've read. A group of children are fashioning a group together to form a team that can stick together and get through the end of the world, as it crumbles around them.

The children part, forming a group, made me think of the Boxcar Children series, which of course as a child, I've read every one. The only difference is that this group of children didn't even attempt to find someone who could help them, the immediately started looking for things to help them survive.

Each person in the group has something different to offer towards the survival of their group. One of the members is even well educated in home remedies, taught to him by his father who was a doctor. He seems to know everything, almost too much for the age of the members in the group. He seems like a know it all and it seems convenient for the author to have him be so smart, but it took away from the drama and issues that could have happened without him knowing and preventing issues.

The seemed to almost have too much knowledge, and some of the things that they knew weren't explained by the author, which seemed impossible on the kids part, and a little unprofessional on the writing from the author.

The book was fast paced enough to keep my attention, and finish the book in a timely manner. I did have a problem with the facts and information that kept changing as the book went on. Everything was inconsistent and it seemed like the author forgot what she had written beforehand and was just kind of writing to write with no intention of keeping things running smoothly based off of what was written previously.

I was really disappointed with the ending as it was unoriginal and kind of young for the type of book I imagined this being written for. Overall invest in Telefonica shares I did enjoy a good portion of the book, not all of it, but enough to rate this at a 3/5.
