Waiting for Dusk (Book Review + Giveaway!)

Hi there!

*all my reviews are completely honest and not influenced by anyone else*

I read this book on request of the author. It’s called Waiting for Dusk by Nancy Pennick, and it’s the first in a trilogy.

The book follows Katie, who is feeling pretty bored in her summer holiday. All of that changes when she picks up a back and realizes it takes her back in time, and meets the boy of her dream. Is it all a dream, or is she really time traveling? Determined to find the truth and willing to leave the real world behind, has Katie gone too far this time? And will her waking up and finding her book missing change anything?

I thought the plot was a great idea and I loved reading about it. I have been reading quite a few books with romance in them which I don’t usually do :3 But I think this was one romance where it is does happen a little fast, but over the course of the novel you can see how sincere it is. I approve of time travel as well, seeing as I am an avid Doctor Who fan xD This was a different spin on it, but still nice to read.

Katie was a character who at first I didn’t like and then I began to love. When she’s bored with her holiday she sounds a bit spoilt, but gradually she grows up and we can see her forming a determined, passionate and risk taking character. She would do anything for the people she loves. And I don’t just mean the love interest – I also mean her family and friends. She also has a difficult thing to deal with which is an almost stalker-ish boy who won’t let her alone. I think Pennick managed to handle this concept and idea well.

Sometimes the style seemed a bit off putting to me. Katie travels into the past and has no trouble adjusting to the olden ways. And sometimes the emotions seemed to change too suddenly or someone was just a bit too easily convinced with a few words. But other than that, it’s the only fault I can find in this!

In general this was a good book with a lovely cover! I would suggest it to girls mostly, because the romance element was a large portion of it. But it was super fun to read and I would give it a three stars!

Conformity - Dead Poets Society 2/5

Hi there!

Are you ready for the second discussion post based off life lessons you can gather from Dead Poets Society? Last week we talked about seizing the day, and now I would love to talk about conformity.

For those of you who haven’t seen the movie, the idea of conformity is shown in the best way possible. Three people are told to march after each other, one behind the other. And after marching for a little while, they all start marching to the same beat. One boy claps along to this beat, and soon all the others are too. What is later pointed out is that they have all conformed to what the others were doing around them, and none of them were being original.

And I think there are many of us who are like that in the world. I have been thinking about it lately, and even managed to write a poem down about it. Conformity can happen to anyone at any time. We see people wearing the same type of clothing, so we try it out too. People like this movie, so let’s go see it ourselves. Everyone hates Twilight? Well, let’s hate it too. (Okay, yes I love Twilight. So yes, I put that example in there xD)

Let’s make the decision to be ourselves from now on. Even the Bible (Romans 12:2) tells us not to conform, and you don't have to be a believer to believe that ^^ 


There may be different ways that each person goes about doing this, so I can’t really tell you what exactly to do. But I can help you a little bit. Every morning, say this to yourself

My name is _.

I believe _.

And today I am going to show it. I will not conform.

I could even do it myself. So to the blogger world:

My name is Olivia.

I believe in my God Almighty, I believe reading is a way of life and music is something that fuses me with energy. I write all my emotions down because I rubbish at sharing them verbally, and I write a diary to make sense of my muddle of thoughts. I love my blog and believe there is always something you could be doing and I think sleep can be really boring and takes up time.

These are things I believe, and I won’t let anyone change them. 

Olivia’s Question: What is one way you think you have conformed to society in? How can you claim this back?

Bridge of Deaths (Blog Tour & Giveaway!)

Hi there!

Welcome to the Bridge of Deaths tour! I will be writing an honest book review for you, as I usually do. Stay tuned for the tour wide giveaway below! The Bridge of Deaths is MCV Egan’s book that manages to combine politics, history and an amazing mystery in one.
 
 
Blurb: On August 15th, 1939, an English passenger plane from British Airways Ltd. 
 
crashed in Danish waters between the towns of Nykøbing Falster and Vordingborg. There were five casualties reported and one survivor. Just two weeks before, Hitler invaded Poland.
 
With the world at the brink of war, the manner in which this incident was investigated left much open to doubt. The jurisdiction battle between the two towns and the newly formed Danish secret police created an atmosphere of intrigue and distrust.
 
The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve "one of those mysteries that never get solved." Based on true events and real people, The Bridge of Deaths is the culmination of 18 years of sifting through conventional and unconventional sources in Denmark, England, Mexico and the United States. The story finds a way to help the reader feel that she is also sifting through data and forming their own conclusions.

Review: I have one thing to say though: this book wasn’t for me. I honestly think it was more of a personal thing than anything else. There was a lot of mention of psychics and reincarnation and I don’t believe any of that myself, so I already felt a bit skeptical about it all.

I think the idea of the plot was quite a clever idea. An unsolved mystery in the past, where the reincarnated versions of some of the victims were haunted by nightmares of the incident. Maggie, Bill and Catalina are eager to solve the case, many years after its occurrence, with very little information to go on. As well as that, the mystery goes into the emotional and scientific aspects of things.

I loved Maggie’s character the most. She’s young and free, looking for the perfect man and building herself up. She’s scared of what the past might unlock for her, and yet she isn’t going to run away but stand by Bill and her new found friend Catalina to dig their way through this together. I have to admire her bravery, which is one of the things that draws me to her.

There is a little bit of romance of this, but it is very simplistic and to the point. You can tell the romance isn’t the main element of this story because it isn’t drawn out or exaggerated or anything. And I liked that. I thought it was nice for a change.

As for the style, this fell a little bit flat for me. We got a lot of names (when you’re dealing with history you do get this a lot) and I felt myself getting confused as to who was who at some points. On top of that, seeing as this is a historical mystery and we’re dealing with past events there is a lot of information involving the case to be taken in. Sometimes I felt like I was getting an information overload :/

Overall, I would have to give this book a three out of five stars. I think other people might like it if they have different beliefs from me though! And for those who don’t mind a bit of non-fiction meddling with the fiction.
 
Interview: Where did you get the inspiration for this novel?
 
My, mom’s dad died twenty years before I was born. He travelled a lot in an era when few did and growing up my home was full of interesting art, books and a number of unique things that made him a viable presence in my life. As I got older the story of his death felt hollow and incomplete that was the fuel stirring the fires of my curiosity that inspired The Bridge of Deaths.
 
What's your favourite thing about the new cover?
 
I love the watch, in both the front and back cover. It is such an intricate part of the story as it is the real one the one the psychics held to feel what they pictured, by the use of psychometry. I kept it sealed for about ten years because when we opened the inside it looked to shiny new and clean, always with the idea of a lab testing it, but in the end it was just waiting to be an even greater part of the book.
 
Who is your favourite character and why?
 
I love to answer this question! MAGGIE and she is my favorite because she is the only main character who was born and formed entirely in my mind. I also love that she strives for world peace and believes in it. I like that she believes that KNOWLEDGE is the key to an awareness that might help us prevent future wars. I am a ‘wanna be pacifist’ I am not as brave as Maggie or as full of conviction, but I learned a lot from her. I also love her wild friends in my new epilogue.
 
What is one thing you learned about your writing as you wrote this?
 
I think what I learned applies to anyone who wants to write. The themes of love, peace, war, betrayal are nothing new, but as individuals we all have our own individual voice and telling a tale with our own unique voice will always make it new.
 
Do you have anything you want to say to your readers?
 
THANK YOU! I am so in awe of the reviews, the private messages with fantastic comments and questions, thank you for taking the time to read my work.

M.C.V. Egan is the pen name chosen by Maria Catalina Vergara Egan. Catalina was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1959, the sixth of eight children, in a traditional Catholic family.
From a very young age, she became obsessed with the story of her maternal grandfather, Cesar Agustin Castillo--mostly the story of how he died.

She spent her childhood in Mexico. When her father became an employee of The World Bank in Washington D.C. in the early 1970s, she moved with her entire family to the United States. Catalina was already fluent in English, as she had spent one school year in the town of Pineville, Louisiana with her grandparents. There she won the English award, despite being the only one who had English as a second language in her class.

In the D.C. suburbs she attended various private Catholic schools and graduated from Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, Maryland in 1977. She attended Montgomery Community College, where she changed majors every semester. She also studied in Lyons, France, at the Catholic University for two years. In 1981, due to an impulsive young marriage to a Viking (the Swedish kind, not the football player
kind), Catalina moved to Sweden where she resided for five years and taught at a language school for Swedish, Danish, and Finnish businesspeople. She then returned to the USA, where she has lived ever since. She is fluent in Spanish, English, French and Swedish.

Maria Catalina Vergara Egan is married and has one son who, together with their five-pound Chihuahua, makes her feel like a full-time mother. Although she would not call herself an astrologer she has taken many classes and taught a few beginner classes in the subject.

Carpe Diem - Dead Poets Society 1/5

Hi there guys!

After watching the move Dead Poets Society for the first time recently, and absolutely loving it, I decided to write a series of 5 posts (so come back and check every Saturday!) about the life lessons we can gather from the movie. And while we’re at it, I would love to mention the very first one that we find.
 
Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Make every day unique.

Now, I am pretty sure you hear these same things every day. But then again, when you’re going to work every day, how is it possible to change something every day? Do something new and escape the habit of living day to day?

It could be something big, like planning a trip to a country you’ve never been to before. It could be getting married or having a big party. But then there are also smaller things you could do. I am going to share with you the things I am going to try and do this week. And I hope you will get inspired to do something new yourself!

Monday – Listen to music I don’t listen to. A new artist, a new group. Who knows? I might like it.

Tuesday – Talk to someone I usually don’t talk to. Striking up conversations has never been my strong point seeing as I am as shy as it gets. This one will be a toughie J

Wednesday – Go somewhere I have never been before. I fully intend to do all my homework and cycle out and keep going, until I lose myself and end up somewhere new. And as I come back home, I am going to admire the area I am in.

Thursday – Dabble at photography. It’s something that looks cool to do, something I will probably be rubbish at. But I am going to go outside and dabble with my camera seize the day, trying it out!

Friday – Create something new. Craft time! What can I make that I have never tried to before?

Saturday – Eat something new. I will try and crack open my recipe book to make something that I’ve yet to taste.

Sunday – Write a postcard to a good friend who lives abroad, and send it. Sometimes it’s good to get a reminder that you haven’t been forgotten, and someone put in a bit of an effort for you.
 
I may not be Buddhist, but Buddha does say this pretty well. We always think we have time, but what if we don't?

Olivia’s Question: How will you seize the day?

The Legacy (Blog Tour & Review)

Hey there!

*all reviews are honest and not influenced by anyone*

I am reviewing The Legacy by Melissa Delport for the Blog Tour I signed up for! My very first blog tour as well :3 I have to say, I wasn’t expecting this book to exceed my expectations, but it did. I loved it every minute I was reading!
 
One man obsessed with power.
One woman prepared to sacrifice everything to stop him.
One war that changed the world.
 
“World War Three lasted twelve days. Twelve days was all it took for mankind to devastate the planet and almost eradicate the human race. No victor emerged from the ashes and billions lost their lives.
 
We survivors lived through the bleakest of winters. A primal existence became the new order, and the little that remained of our humanity hung in the balance.
Then one man stood up and changed the world. I believed, as did everyone else, that he was the hero of our time, the man who had saved us from our own demise. His name is Eric Dane and he is the President of the New United States of America. 
 
He is also my husband, and my greatest enemy.
 
I grew up oblivious to the truth, until my father found me when I was nineteen years old. He told me about the many horrifying facts that our new leader kept hidden from us. And he told me that beyond the borders the Resistance grew and fought for freedom from the oppression that Eric Dane had imposed on us.
 
My name is Rebecca Davis. I am twenty-six years old, and in me the Resistance has found the ultimate weapon.”
 
A narrative of good and evil, love and passion, right and wrong – and at the centre of the story a strong woman who is prepared to sacrifice everything for the cause she believes in.
 
The Legacy is an action-packed, adrenalin-inducing thrill ride which will leave you riveted long after you have turned the last page.
 
Review:

The book is about Rebecca, who is married to the President of New America in a post-apocalyptic world, and is First Lady. But she doesn’t love her husband at all. In fact, she secretly hates him and is working with an those outside the fence to bring him down. But this is going to be a lot harder than everyone thought when powers come into the story. As well as love, family, friendships and above all, betrayals…

Okay, as far as the plot goes this was amazing! I love reading YA but sometimes it all seems so same-y and you never get anything different. In this book we have a Rebecca undercover, which is a bit of a new aspect of a plot to me. There were also multiple plot twists, including a huge one at the end which I won’t give away. The ending has me tingling and I really can’t wait to get my ha 
nds on the second book as well. Because this book kept me on my toes, never sure what would happen next, I loved it.

The beginning wasn’t my favourite bit because I felt like there were some things Rebecca should’ve already known after living undercover for so long, but from the beginning it only gets better. Reed, admittedly, is my favourite character. He’s someone who is confident, playful and daring. Yet he does have a sincere side to him, but it’s just harder to pull out. His snarky comments and cool attitude definitely made him my fave.

Yes, there is a bit of a love triangle in here. But it kind of works for this book and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It didn’t get annoying or too boring at any point.

I was happy to read this! It kept me captivated all the way through, and definitely earns the full five stars from me!

Top 10: Things to do when back from abroad!

Hi there! I hope you are all having a good weekend! 

So this summer, I’ve done a few bits of travelling, and what I would like to share with you guys is my top 10 things I like to do when I get back from a trip. Maybe you’ve had similar experiences or you have something specific you do too? Well, without further ado, here they are!

1.      Be hyper

My initial response to be home is always hyperness. I jump around in public and do things I wouldn’t usually do, like actively pose for a lot of pictures, sing out loud and run towards the car that is going to be taking me home. It surprised me the first time I did it too, but I was just so happy to be back!

 
2.      Hug my family, and sometimes cry (if they weren’t there with me)

If my family haven’t been there with me, I will have undoubtedly missed them, whether I was there for a single day or three weeks.


3.      Eat food I love or crave
 
 
When I came back from China my welcome home dinner was ribs and rice (some of my favourite foods) and I was really REALLY craving my every day bowl of cereal seeing as I didn’t have any while I was there at all. A simple food to miss but I did. So. And my father surprised me with this amazing meal as well :D

4.      Sleep

Jetlagged or not, sleep is good after being away. I’m not the only person who misses their own bed, am I?

5.      Check emails and plug back into the internet world

 
Usually when we go on holiday we don’t have internet connection. I don’t really mind most times; I actually like unplugging. It’s the plugging back in that is more of a challenge. Emails sure like to pile up.

6.      Get back to blogging

 I gotta tell you all what I’ve been off doing and why I stopped posting suddenly!

7.      Sort through the travel photos

 So I can show you guys of course! 

8.      Talk to my mates back home

It’s not just family I miss ;)

9.      Read early in the morning in the peace and quiet
My father recently bought us a double swing chair that is put outside. I like waking up early, having breakfast by myself and then sneaking outside to read with a good book. So peaceful and quiet. Mmm ^^
 
10.      Be alone
 
At heart, I’m an introvert. When it comes to travelling I usually am sharing a room with someone and that means constantly spending time with someone always there. No problem for me, I can usually stay pleasant and just enjoy the trip altogether. But when I come back, I love catching up on that alone time I missed out on.

Fountain of the Earth (Book Review & Giveaway)

Hey there!

Today I will be reviewing a book called The Fountain of the Earth by H. L. Le Roy. I read this on request but do remember all my reviews are my own honest and truthful opinions.

This book follows Terra Vonn who lives in a destroyed earth after it has been plagues and ruined by illness. Horrors occur all over nowadays, and for Terra, things are about to get much worse. After the horrific murder of her mother Terra Vonn decided to get revenge on her mother’s murders herself. But along the way she encounters savage strangers, lunatics, cannibals and many other dangers in this post-apocalyptic world. Terra quickly realizes she is not cut out for this life, and yet learns she is the little that stands between civilization and destruction.

I thought the plot for this story was great. We get to see this new world where things are different than I’ve seen in any book. I liked the idea of their being clans where people lived together. What I also think this book did so well was show us some of the clan life before Terra goes off on her adventure, which means we really get to see the scene set. Also, the manner in which this is done keeps the book interesting, so it isn’t like you’re pawing through a whole lot of boring information.

I have to say my favourite character in this book turned out to be Ormek. He was always loyal, strong and trustworthy, no matter the consequences. He was someone who tried to do things for the greater good. Beth was also a good character, and shares much of the same traits that Ormek had – yet they come across as completely different characters.

I think the writing style for this book was a bit too simplistic for my liking. It was very simplistic mostly in the middle of this book and bothered me a little, but when it came to the end of the book, like the beginning, the style improved and I was able to enjoy it more.

Overall, I would rate this book a three stars out of five. I recommend it to people who enjoy reading YA, and don’t mind a little bit of gore in there too.

Make Up in Society (Guest Post & Giveaway!)

Good morning! Today we have a guest post from the fabulous Gaby! Without further ado, here is her post!
~
 
As a beauty blogger, you might well understand why for me, mascara is like underwear, I don't leave home without it. In fact, I can't remember the last time I stepped out in public without applying some sort of makeup product, and I would say that I have reasonably high self-confidence. Yet, why is it that in the society we live in, wearing makeup is viewed as a way of coping with and concealing your low self esteem. How is taking pride in your appearance "hurting" your confidence? How is putting on lip gloss another way of saying that you’re not satisfied with what you were born with.

Yes we all have insecurities, there's no doubting that, and although I understand why people may see makeup as a way of covering up low self esteem, as it allows us to cover up those insecurities, isn't covering up your blemishes to help you look your best the same as wearing a flattering dress on a night out? No one would point fingers as a girl in a pretty dress and claim that she is simply "hiding her low self-esteem behind the dress", rather, they would compliment her on how fantastic she looks,  so why is wearing makeup a different story?
 
The issue arises when women feel that they must wear makeup, once the element of choice is removed, then the problems arise. Our society is skewed as it is when it comes to the way women should look and act, so when people say that women can only look beautiful with a face full of makeup and in their best clothes, wearing makeup and wearing your best clothes suddenly lose their appeal.
 
Confidence levels drop when wearing makeup becomes a chore rather than a choice, when women are told by society that without it they are less than beautiful. It is society's expectation of women to wear makeup that makes it a bad, self-esteem lowering thing, rather than the act of wearing makeup itself.

In my opinion however, when freely chosen, makeup empowers a woman to present herself in exactly the way she chooses. It empowers a woman to say  “Here I am. I took three minutes today for myself because, you know what, I deserve it.” If that’s not demonstrating self-esteem, I don’t know what is.
 
I hope you enjoyed reading this guest post, you can find me over at anothergirlyblg.blogspot.co.uk where I post hauls, product reviews, 
and more unique content daily Monday-Friday at 5pm.

Have a beautiful day!

Seven Sneezes (Book review & Giveaway!)


Konichiwa!

*All my reviews are honest and not influenced by anyone else.*

Today the book I am going to be reviewing is called Seven Sneezes by David Burton. I picked it up because it sounded like a calm and sweet romance, not something like action or adventure. My mind needed a break from all those fast paced books and I couldn’t wait to try this one out.

The story follows through Lizzy’s life, as in her whole life. We first see her as a child who struggles through her father leaving her with her mother. Gradually she grows up and we get to see her going through her teens and then leaving school. Of course, the romance is not too far to follow, and we continue to stick with Lizzy up until her death. A lot happens in that time, and I am sure Lizzy experiences a little bit of everything.

I am super happy I picked up this book, because it has that calm drama that I love and cherish. We really need more books like this one. When I picked it up my mind imagined it to be a bit more based on the romance, so when it was sort of quicker than anticipated (Note: NOT insta-love, but just not the long span focus of the story) I was a bit surprised. But it didn’t matter much because the rest of the book was just as good.

Lizzy is a character anyone could love. After struggling through a difficult childhood, she tries to be strong and independent. Someone most people can rely on, and yet has a difficult time getting along with people no matter how h 
ard she tries to be a good person. I honestly can relate to this, which made me love her as a character all the more. Another character I loved was Barry because something important happens to him *no spoilers* and he manages to keep a positive attitude all the way through it. It reminded me of my little sister as well, and how she always tries to be independent regardless and keep her chin up!

This book was definitely good. In fact, I would give it the full five of five stars, and strongly recommend it. I hope you try it someday. David Burton is definitely an author that should be a bit bigger in my opinion
