You’d be surprised how much you missed something when you’ve been away for a while. I talked to someone recently about my love of reading and they mentioned how I should write reviews. I thought to myself ‘I do!’ but I knew that I hadn’t been consistent with writing them. I don’t think there is any real science behind it, I just think that my love for reading has suddenly outweighed my love for writing reviews.
Don’t get me wrong! I love love love to review novels but I just get so caught up in the stories that I end up reading the next novel and not writing the review. I have sooooo many book reviews to write. I’ve at least read 4 books a week for the last month and a half. Each of them will be getting a review, it’s just a matter of time.
I look forward to the long nights until I get them all done and I hope that you enjoy them.
I love feedback guys! If you hate my reviews, let me know! If you love my reviews, let me know! If you have read the book before, please…let me know and tell me how you felt about it!
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!
I must admit that reading this story did make me a little sad inside seeing as I just lost a child but it also made me happy. I was a little irritated with the main character female in the beginning of the story. I just wasn’t on her side at all. It might be because I was a little biased when it comes to first person novels but luckily I made it through. Eventually she grew on me, her love for her child maybe me smile and her determination to stay true to herself was relatable.
The main character guy was definitely my favorite person in the story! From the beginning he seemed like a great guy. He had his life together and knew where he wanted to go. I love his reaction to finding out he’s going to be a father and believe it’s not unlike most guys. He wasn’t perfect but the author did a really good job of creating someone we can root for and fall in love with.
I wasn’t very fond of her mother but she did seem to have some redeeming qualities there at the end. The bestfriend is what any girl in trouble could ask for! She was loyal, angry, supportive and even a little over the top and dramatic like bestfriends should be!
I’d definitely recommend!
The story can be found on the link I inserted below from Wattpad. I really love this new little website for new writers. You will definitely find a few real gems on there!
So, I’m sorry that I haven’t been on here for a few months. My life has been hard these last few weeks. I was in a happy phase of my life, reading books, working, making plans for the future and being with my guy. Then everything took a turn for the crazy. I found out I was pregnant in August and outside of the usual surprise and terrifying thoughts I was happy. My guy was reserved and eventually happy and we began making plans for our future together and that of our child.
8 weeks into my pregnancy I had to rush to the ER due to severe bleeding. I thought I’d had a miscarriage but instead it turned out I was diagnosed with SCH. It’s a Subchrionic Hematoma. It happens basically when the placenta slightly detaches from the uterus. I was so scared and I cried alot. This was pretty consistent over the next three weeks. I was in and out of the ER and finally the last time I went I was told that my child had died; that I had miscarried. I don’t know if any of you have ever experienced it but it was the most devastating thing I’ve ever had happened. I’m still grieving now and it’s been the wildest turn of events that are still effecting me. I hadn’t read any books, I hadn’t written any of my new novel, I really hadn’t done much of anything.
While I was pregnant I had started a Youtube pregnancy and natural hair vlog, I have since turned it just into my natural hair blog but I will insert the links below so you guys can check them out or any future uploads. It was indeed an outlet for me. I have slowly been picking the pieces of my life back up. I moved into a new apartment, I just enrolled at Aveda Institute and made plans for my future. Despite the grief and the hurt of the miscarriage my guy and I are stronger than ever. I’ve read a few books since then and I’ve even reached out to a few guest writers to do a book review for the site! I am determined to heal and not let my emotional state stop me from doing the things I love!
Please be patient with me! I will be uploading more reviews and posts soon! Be prepared to see more of me!
