Review

The Musicians Dream is a book I finished in just half a day and a long night of on and off reading. I COULDN’T put it down, but had to for the sake of my baby or else I’d have finished it in three hours! I absolutely love the book because it has romance, banter, family values, brokenness, healing, and most importantly CHRIST! I love how the author has written the intricacy that is Christian values that everyone is on a need to know basis, I loved the themes, the drama and the music. I couldn’t get enough of the book and highlighted so much because it’s so inspiring, touching and healing I can definitely see myself wanting to re read already!

The story is about a Christian hymnal YouTuber SD from Music with Meaning and Grant Tracy the banjo player from a bluegrass band. Serene is a firm believer that God does everything for good and with purpose so everytime she uploads on Sunday it’s because she’s been blessed but also dealt a hard hand and still chooses to praise God. Grant Tracy can’t stand Bible thumpers atleast that’s what he thought until he heard SD sing and then he tolerated it for her videos because he wanted to know what gave her the serenity in her eyes and the peace that seemed to ebb and flow through her fingers. What they both don’t expect is to meet each other but will they fall in love with such a huge gap in their values? Will Alex’s match making abilities work out or will he fail for once?

Review

โ€œYouโ€“you are so incredibly infuriating. You are a mystery I canโ€™t seem to solve, andโ€“โ€ He swallowed, almost choking on the words. โ€œYou are a song my soul is constantly, hopelessly drawn to. You have not once left my mind, Oriana. Not since the day I met you.โ€ 

This book is a book that had my heart racing and wanting to finish it ASAP and also not wanting to finish a good book so soon I was torn but you know which side won ๐Ÿคญ if not we wouldn’t be here would we๐Ÿคฃ. Anyway this book had the angst, the passion, the thrill, the beauty, the destruction of dreams and also blood lu&t lots and lots of blood lust!

I got to read this book because I was on tour with BOMM tours and got an ARC copy, so I knew that this was the authors debut but OMG did this blow my socks off! I loved the dynamic between Oriana and Garren they had a on and off thing going on between them which was swoony to read, the sibling rivalry is well written!

Our MC is Oriana who has been cursed by the God of War and Trickery, to be consumed on the last day of every month until she succumbs to be the monster that rages inside her! She is determined but sometimes slips out of her self made enchanted prison the Phantom Woods. Will she ever find a way to break the curse or will it break her?
Garren is a demon slayer so once he hears about the white demon that scours the Phantom Woods and holds a town hostage, he is determined to set them free but finds love will he let it distract him from his cause? And what is Oriana’s story? Read to find out!

A tale crafted to perfection and the hours and days and months the author had poured into this book makes the book such a perfect fantasy novel. The plot is just simply mind blowingly brilliant, the characters are so so lovable, the elements of fantasy and spice is chefs kiss, the pace is steady but not slow, and the writing style is amazing! Overall this is a book that will quench the thirst of all fantasy lovers! Come eat your heart out people! (pun intended ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Gleanings : Stories From The Arc Of A Scythe

Rating ๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€

Review

I’ve not read from the author before even though the Scythe books have been on my TBR so I pounced on the opportunity to read an ARC through Rockstar Book Tours and I’m glad they took me on the team!

The book is a collection of short stories that happened alongside and before the Scythe triology books, the stories are all written in a way that would have the readers hooked! The author’s penmanship is remarkable, the stories are unique and intriguingly familiar to people who read the triology(I started reading it too!) The book is on the origin stories and will probably make more sense to read the triology before tackling this book but I found it interesting and a whole new world of SCYTHEs! If you ask me my favorite was “A death of many colors” It was beautiful, subtle and interesting. Overall this is a book every Scythe lover would devour!

A book with four stories that are Christmassy and filled with snowy days and hot beverages! I loved the book it’s always time for Christmas books even when it’s Halloween technically. I’m partial to the first story because come on rivals turned lovers is always amazing in my book! Each story had it’s unique mark and left a beautiful feeling inside me, the book is well written even though it’s short it’s so sweet and full of good cheer(see what I did there ;D ). The plot is so cute and whimsically predictable until it’s not! The characters are lovable you’ll want to reach out and give a hug through the pages and the book will definitely make you start counting down the days to Christmas!

Zara and her friends are enjoying their summer by riding their bikes to the new park but what happens when her bike goes missing one day! All because she forgot to lock her bike! She decides to save up money to buy a bike. Also the are Islamic and Muslim culture in the background that’s splendidly shown but not too much that it overwhelms the reader but enough for Muslims to relate to and non-muslims to see their friends within Zara’s character.

The book is well written, the candidness of the scenes make the reader feel like they’re living inside the book alongside the characters! The language is easy to understand , the plot is clear cut and the characters are relatable and well built. Overall this is a book I recommend to YA and MG readers they’ll absolutely adore the characters and see themselves in the book!

Review:

This is one of that books that encourage children that their background doesn’t matter and that they can rise to great heights only if they put their minds to it! Ti loved how the author has used Edith’s story for this children’s book, it’s something I think kids should learn young that what amount of money they have, where they pige, their race, their origin none of that matters as big as one’s will to sharpen their skills!

The story is beautifully illustrated and colorful while being attractive to kids and teaching them something as well as showing that someone has already done it before and that it’s doable! The story is short so it’s easy to keep the childs attention till the end and the animals in the story will help bring their attention back in case their mind wanders for even a second. Overall a book that parents would love reading to their kids as well as teaching them major life lessons at such a young age!

Review

Oh if I could count the times I rushed to post a story of how funny this book was! I loved no adored this book, this book has a grumpy-shunshine trope that you’ll fall in love from the very beginning! A book that will have you laughing out loud and make you want to sob, the book heartache is REAL!

Or main characters are Bear Mr. Grumpy Grumperson and Trixie Miss. Sunshine and Rainbows. They meet when she’s shooing a chicken off the road or at least trying to help it to get to the other side, but unfortunately the chicken doesn’t move and it’s wounded so her bleeding heart takes it to a vet and she gets caught with the chicken in her hand by the landlord and gets an eviction notice. Things aren’t looking up and she needs a home STAT! On the other hand Bear’s meddlesome sisters have put up an add for a housemate, fates collide and so does their worlds but will they crash and burn or will they fall for each other? Read to find out!!

The book is one of the best tearjerkers and LOLed books I’ve read this year, it’s characters are brilliantly written with many faceted layers upon layers to unravel, the comical factors are endless, the emotional elements are sprinkled for good measure and the plot is ever growing to such an amazing climax and ending! A book I definitely recommend to RomCom lovers!

Review

A well written book which has a boatload of information for moms to be and for new moms and as a new mom myself this book was so useful, the book is divided into chapters or sections for easy reference. The book starts from the Early Stages Of Pregnancy till Postpartum belly exercises and healthy living for a new mom! The book is definitely a bestseller waiting to happen I really wish I had found this book during my pregnancy because the information it jas is so vast and it also explains pregnancy and baby myths and what to believe and what’s right to do and the right questions to ask the doctor. It’s well written, the themes are relevant, the chapter division is perfectly done, the vocabulary usage makes it beginner friendly, every chapter is discussed with a doctor so it’s sound advice and a perfect gift for your siblings who are expecting!
