The Impending Monetary Revolution by Edmund Contoski {Book Review}

This is a very controversial topic there that Edmund Contoski dives into with his experience of over forty five years. With economic precariousness in the world today, should America return to the gold standard? It's a valid question that Edmund has been marketing and conducting investment seminars to share and spread the knowledge.

Edmund has made a topic that is tedious and tiresome, into a more fascinating. He writes a book that lays out the information in layman terms which makes it easier for more people to understand what's happening in the world around them.

Government are on the cliff to bankruptcy because there is no restraint. A gold standard would provide on their spending and manipulate credit. Greece is a great example that is mainly used to show the worst case scenario when a country spends more money than they have, while borrowing money to make up for it.

This hasn't really happened to the United States because we can just keep printing out our own money. Eventually after time this will devalue the dollar.

So the big question is, what do we do about this? What will happen in our children's lifetime? Our grandchildren? Why is unemployment at an all time high? One might say we should return to the gold standard. Read more about this topic and learn something new! I give this book a 5/5.

True Love's First Kiss by Heidi Garrett {Review and Giveaway}

True Love’s First Kiss is a compilation of the first three books in this ongoing series

Buy it: Kindle | Amazon Paperback
Add it: GoodReads and ShelfariTrue Love's First Kiss (Queen of the Realm of Faerie 1-3)

What are the books about?

In the Enchanted World, true love’s first kiss is magic.

Nandana’s Mark, Book 1:
When two half-faeries—Melia and her younger sister—are cursed under dreadful circumstances, true love’s first kiss is the remedy.

The Flower of Isbelline, Book 2:
Nothing but true love’s first kiss can save Melia’s younger sister from blind ambition and ruin.

The Dragon Carnivale, Book 3:
Melia must choose the freedom she cherishes or true love’s first kiss—and a relationship that promises to secure her place in the Whole.

The Queen of the Realm of Faerie is a fantasy fairy tale series that bridges the Mortal and Enchanted worlds. The main character, Melia, is an eighteen-year-old half-faerie, half-mortal. She lives in Illialei, a country in the Enchanted World, with her two sisters and their mother. Melia’s father has been exiled to the Mortal World, and her best friend is a pixie.

When the story opens in the first book, Melia is troubled by her dark moon visions, gossip she overhears about her parents at the local market, and the trauma of living among full-blooded faeries with wings—she doesn’t have any.

As the series unfolds, the historic and mystical forces that shape Melia’s life are revealed. Each step of her journey—to find the place where she belongs—alters her perceptions about herself, deepens her relationships with others, and enlarges her world view.
