Everyday Sexism

IMG_6352_updateThe world around us sends us messages about ourselves as women. […] It lets us know that it is normal and common for women to experience assault and harassment and rape. And it tells us that we deserve it. And all the while we are conditioned to be passive and pleasant, not to make a fuss. […] Before we ever experience violence we are conditioned to expect it – and to accept it.

I came across Laura Bates’ “Everyday Sexism” through Instagram. One of the many book bloggers posted a picture of it and I had to buy it immediately. Continue reading “Everyday Sexism”

The Bird and the Sword

SPOILER FREE:

Amy Harmon’s first release of 2016, The Bird and the Sword, was an amazing book I read back in May.  I devoured this book in less than 24 hours and still think of it frequently three months later.  For me, the mark of a great author is one who can create a story that sticks with me long after I finish the last page.  I’m not a typical fantasy reader, with the exception of the Harry Potter series, so I felt as if I was taking a risk with this book.  After seeing the many raving reviews on Goodreads, I knew I had to give it a chance.  I am without a doubt glad I did.  Continue reading “The Bird and the Sword”

East of Redemption

IMG_6263_copyrightSPOILER FREE:

If you look for adventure, mystery, history and romance, then this is the book for you.
Rain, a famous animal photographer, was a great female heroine. She was tough, strong and didn’t take sh*t from anybody – not even Easton, a famous treasure hunter and the former love of her life. He was not only a treasure hunter but also the star of his own adventure reality TV-Show. Both Rain and Easton had great chemistry – personally and work-related – throughout the entire book. Their adventure to one of the many caves in Israel to excavate a treasure was both exciting and dangerous at the same time. Continue reading “East of Redemption”

The most anticipated Romance book of 2016 released just a few days ago, and we thought it deserved the honor of being featured as our first blog post.

I devoured this book in less than 24 hours with my heart and soul. I never expected to love this book as much as I did, though I should have known it would be incredible.  Continue reading “It Ends With Us”
