Dreamland: A Book Blurb

The blurb

Riley’s finding that the afterlife can be a lonely place when all you do is focus on work. So she goes to the place where dreams happen, hoping to find a way to contact her sister, Ever. She meets the director, who tells her about the two ways to send dreams. As a Dream Jumper, a person can jump into a dreamer’s dream, share a message, and participate. As a Dreamweaver, an entire dream can be created in a studio and sent to the dreamer. But Dreamweaving was outlawed decades ago, and the studio was boarded up. Thinking it’s her only way to reach out to her sister, Riley goes in search of the old studio. There she finds a ghost boy, who’s been creating and sending nightmares to people for years. In order to stop him and reach out to Ever, Riley is going to have to confront and overcome her own fears.

The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories: A Book Blurb

The Blurb

Faerie is never as far away as you think. Sometimes you find you have crossed an invisible line and must cope, as best you can, with petulant princesses, vengeful owls, ladies who pass their time embroidering terrible fates or with endless paths in deep, dark woods and houses that never appear the same way twice. The heroines and heroes bedeviled by such problems in these fairy tales include a conceited Regency clergyman, an eighteenth-century Jewish doctor and Mary, Queen of Scots, as well as two characters from Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell: Strange himself and the Raven King. 

Why I Decided to Take on the Read

The blurb made me buy it. I love how Clarke crocheted fragile words and turned my imagination into a fairytale setting.

Stay tuned for my book review.

The Chocolate Diaries: A Book Review

The Chocolate Diaries is not a recipe book. It's a book that contains sweet life stories, tips and quotes that could make a tough battle with life bearable. 

I got inspired by the drive through lane story. I would love to do that once in a while, but in my own little way. {I wouldn't want to be a spoiler and re-tell the whole story. You have to find out yourself.} It taught me on how one person can be good when everything is just a mess. The morale of the story will hold you back to do miserable and pathetic things that seems too easy (or stupid) to do when our life seems to suck.

The author also gets to talk about scientific processes that occur when we feel down or happy. Like how stress causes adrenaline, and in the process, fats are released into the bloodstream. So, we have all the reasons to be happy. Everyone doesn't like to be called fat, right?

And, I love Top 10 Reasons to be a Writer. Once again, I am disclosing those reasons. The article inspired me more to become a writer. I want to be a writer, even though it means only writing for myself. It is my passion. Even though I may suck at it, I still want to be a writer. But, if it's infinitely possible, I would write for my readers. 

However, I found reading the book to be dragging and redundant at times. That doesn't erase the great stories and thoughts that one could derive from the book though. 

To end the review, let me share to you some of the quotes I love in this book:

The sorrow which has no vent in tears may make other organs weep.
-- Henry Maudsley

When you need a quicker picker-upper, you can reach for a paper towel or some chocolate. Chocolate may taste better, but paper towels provide more dietary fiber. Tough choice, I know

How to be God's Little Princess: Book Review

How to be God's Little Princess
Royal Tips for Manners, Etiquette, and True Beauty

by Shiela Walsh with Jennifer Gerelds

This is my first book from BookSneeze.com and I was so excited to read it. The book has a light, princessy effect, with shimmering silver text titles on a pink background. When you open the book, you can also see that the sides of each page has pink hues, which dramatically fades in.

This book is dedicated to every young lady in the world and it holds guidelines on how a little girl can be a good Christian and how she can be pleasing to God and to others at such a young age. The guidelines ranges from how to obtain the regal posture and poise, how to apply table manners, how to wear a tiara, how to host a great party, how to write a thank you note, and what are the proper and improper things to do in cyberspace.

The way that these things are taught are made more interactive and fun through quizzes, cute illustrations, do-it-yourself's and scribbling sections. The faith in God of these little girls would be strengthened more and they would be taught how to act properly in different situations. Also, related Bible verses are printed on each new topic page. 

How to be God's Little Princess would make an excellent gift for young girls whose age is from 7 to 12 years old. This would definitely bring up a lady that is beautiful, inside and outside in the eyes of God.

I would be give it to my little cousin in the right time. She is just five years old now. :)
