Book Review: Opening Hearts by Iona Findley

Hey, all! I just finished reading this next story on Wattpad. I think I am in love with this website. I have found that it makes it so easy to grab the next story and sink my teeth in. I will continue to pull stories from this website. I believe that outing these great stories and sharing them with the world will help cultivate this new authors and incourage them to keep writing! Go Iona!

Opening Hearts is an easy hearfelt story about taking risks, trusting others and self-sacrifice. This is a cute little story about the changes that can happen in life and the good things that come out of them. I would recommend this story if you are looking for something easy and laid back to read. If you’re looking for rainy day stories, this is definitely something to curl up with.

With few risque parts, the author joins a soft romance with a firey passion. It’s a story where love knows no bounds and despite the dangers of life and fear of the unkown there is always a bright side. The plot is well rounded and steady through the story. Check out this story at the link below to follow the story of Jessalyn and Sam.

P.S. It made me pretty upset to realize the story that I read on Wattpad was actually a duplicate of the original one written by another author. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised as this does happen but gosh… Anyway, my review of this story still stands. I uploaded a link of the author’s page at the bottom.

Here’s the link to this story!

WAITING TO BUY BOOKS

Ok…so yes. I’m addicted. It’s nothing like any drug that you’ve ever had or any drink you’ve ever tasted. It’s something you can feel and grasp and shake in your hands. The smell of the old flutters my heart and the new gives me the giggles. You can purely see in my face how excited I get each time a favorite author comes out on the shelves and I just “stumble” upon them.

I am addicted to books! I’m addicted to reading them, writing them, holding them and I even love it when I see other people reading. I guess that would mean a book review blog would be the perfect place to shout about my love and spread it to others! While walking through Walmart the other day I came across Runaway Vampire, the new Argeneau novel by Lynsay Sands. I, unforunately, wasn’t in a place where I could buy it but I will definitely be adding it to my collection of novels by the end of next week.

I wish that I could show you the large  piles of books and large reusable bags of books that i have. I have a very large walk in closet and due to me not having a bookshelf, I cant really “walk in”. Back home, in my two bedroom apartment, I had two very large bookshelves that I used. When I moved to Florida I bagged everything I owned, put it in my car and drove like crazy. Sadly, my compact car couldn’t handle the bookshelves and I was forced to leave them behind.

I love buying new books. I used to go by this weird philosophy that I was going to read every book that I own. Aparently I never took into consideration that I buy books faster than I read them. I used to leave Barnes and Nobles with four to five books and sometimes more depending on the sale. Now, as I dive deeper into buying books from thrift stores, Targets, garage sales and more; there’s just no way I can keep up. Nevermind the amount of books that have been donated to me because coworkers or friends of friends have found out how much I love reading. (btw…if you ever want to get rid of books, I am willing to take them, whatever they are).

 

You could even say that….I’m addicted.

Book Review: Hitman In Love by KikiEmin

Hey,

Ok, so I didn’t know this story was a homosexual story when I started reading it. I just read the title and I was like yes! I think this might be what I’m looking for. Now, I’m not into homosexual romance or erotica or anything like that but…the story was good.

The writer had made it known that there was some editing issues, as most WattPad writers/stories are unedited but I didn’t care. I read the story, despite the editing problems it was good. I could tell that at some parts it didn’t seem like English was the first language but it didn’t really matter. The plot seemed to be lacking a piece or two but I can definitely see where the writer is going. Now, I know it sounds like I’m trying to make allowances for the writer and I’m not. This genre of writing isn’t really my forte and yet I was still intrigued and interested in the story. That, in my book, should say a lot about the writer. Great job KikiEmin! I’m sure you have some more writing to do, more tweaking to do. Once the book is in a completed and full edited state I would have no problem going through and reading the story over again.

Warning, this story has some explicit detail (unknown at first), just wanted to warn you if you haven’t noticed already.
