The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler | spoiler-free

Prologue

I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues…At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn’t stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one’s ever asked them before.

Review

Although the book was quite interesting, I mean… reading what womens have to say about their own vaginas was completely crazy in a good way, it just didn’t hit the mark… What started as a strong, witty manifesto ended up being completely plane and boring… I’m sorry, I really wanted to like this book but I just can’t.

She just added some wikipedia facts about the vagina which I can search for myself thank you very much, plus the whole book was created around the letters women have send talking about their vaginas. Well to be more precise, she copy pasted the letters into the book and that’s the book… Man, it really sucked, a theme that had so much potential. I’ve read it because it was a good topic, Emma Watson had it in her book club and my boyfriend told me that he went to see her (the author) live preaching on the subject, and that sold it. But when I’ve finished it I’ve asked him his honest opinion, without speaking any word of mine and he was completely dissapointed like I was. A lot of hardcore feminist statements as well… Can we fucking embrace equality now please? I mean it’s 2018… and I don’t see women go to work to help the men who fight for their country, for anything really, they just attack for no reason SOMETIME.

Attitude Is Everything: Change Your Attitude… and You Change Your Life! JEFF KELLER | spoiler-free review

Prologue

This is a “success manual” that gives readers a step by step plan for taking control of their lives and unleashing their incredible potential. The book consists of 12 Lessons: Your Attitude is Your Window to the World; You’re A Human Magnet; Picture Your Way to Success; Make a Commitment and You’ll Move Mountains; Turn Your Problems into Opportunities; Your Words Blaze A Trail; How Are You?; Stop Complaining; Associate with Positive People; Confront Your Fears and Grow; Get Out There and Fail; Networking That Gets Results.

The book shows how author Jeff Keller used these principles to make a career transition from lawyer to motivational speaker — and shows readers how they, too, can make positive changes in every area of their lives.

Review

I read a lot of personal development books, yes I know. But this is the subject I want to dominate my life for a bit, until I can change into the person I want to be and until I make my life shine. The books I read help, so you can find some gems for yourself as well, everybody needs a little help and improvement trust me. Even if you are the best version of yourself, you can still be better, stronger, happier.

Now, this book… is marvelous. Easy to understand, follow and bold. Jeff Keller talks about other people’s principles as well such as Napoleon Hill but he comes to the table with new, interesting and bold principles that you can easily follow to make your life the best life, you just have to read it, want it and go for it!

GO FOR IT! And tell me how it went 😉

Why we should study the classics

I’ve just recently finished Downton Abbey, which is an exquisite serie that takes place into the roaring twenties, an era of good manners, servants, gossip, social etiquete and an era of change. A different vibe from the victorian era we all love, well I love.

Why the classics should be studied when it comes to a tv serie you ask… simple, because Downton Abbey reminded me of great arhitecture, amazing education, bold books and amazing art. The classics should be study for us to know our history, for us to discover how quality always rise above quantity, to learn the fine arts of true masters because in the lost centuries there were masters of anything, people were honest and good, they had morals and thoughts like no other, they gaved birth to everything we play with nowadays. Genuine and geniuses were in vogue. We should study the best to become the best and we should see more than Instagram suggests we should, we should see the hard work that took place over the years, how poets died poor for us to enrich our own soul, how painters refused great deals of money for us to see their hard work into museums nowadays for a sum cheaper that a lipstick at MAC.

We should study the classics because they were like us, trying to understand human nature, trying to beat the odds, trying to live in peace and love, trying to remain remembered over the years…

Eeny Meeny Helen Grace #1 M.J. Arlidge | spoiler-free review

Prologue:

The girl emerged from the woods, barely alive. Her story was beyond belief. But it was true. Every dreadful word of it.

Days later, another desperate escapee is found – and a pattern is emerging. Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faced with a terrible choice: kill or be killed.

Would you rather lose your life or lose your mind?

Detective Inspector Helen Grace has faced down her own demons on her rise to the top. As she leads the investigation to hunt down this unseen monster, she learns that it may be the survivors – living calling cards – who hold the key to the case.

And unless she succeeds, more innocents will die . . .

Review:

Couples start to disappear, in the night, in the daylight… It doesn’t matter when but how? They get stuck on a lonely road, until a van comes up to rescue them, the lady who drives is nice, offers them a drink and then they found themselves  in a lonely dungeon or an empty pool, left to die or to kill. Two lawyers, a mom and a daughter, lovers and friends… all bound to fire a gun, a bullet in their pair’s heart and a rope to freedom falls from the ceiling to their own rescue.

But how can you live with the choice you make?

This is the first novel of a  book serie  where the protagonist is a clever detective, she is a smart, independent woman – Helen Grace. Helen hates holidays, she loves cigars, she has no family, no friends, just a will to find serial killers and to put them behind bars. When the murders happen and more couples disappear, all in the same manner, Helen is bound to believe that a serial killer is at loose. But what if they aren’t the target? They are just the victims of a weird, hard to play game where the target is Helen.

The novel is scary and interesting to the core, from the first page to the last literally. Helen is a great detective and the book is outstanding. The story is unique.

I gaved the book 4/5 stars, you’ll need an iced coffee because you will finish it in one go.

Cards on the table by Agatha Christie | spoiler-free

Prologue

It was the match-up of the century: four sleuths–Superintendent Battle of Scotland Yard; Mrs. Ariadne Oliver, famed writer of detective stories; Col. Race of His Majesty’s Secret Service; and the incomparable Hercule Poirot – invited to play bridge with four specially invited guests, each of whom had gotten away with murder! But before the first rubber was completed, the host was dead.

Review

It’s not one of her gripping stories, it’s more of a relaxed murder investigation where Poirot and the detectives are looking into people’s pasts and yes some of them are murderers but the murders could be accidents as well. The outlook of the story is interesting, captivating but slightly boring. It’s good as a holiday day off because it’s short and smart, witty.

The doll’s house by M.J. Arlidge | spoiler-free book review

Prologue

A young woman wakes up in a cold, dark cellar, with no idea how she got there or who her kidnapper is. So begins her terrible nightmare.
Nearby, the body of another young woman is discovered buried on a remote beach. But the dead girl was never reported missing – her estranged family having received regular texts from her over the years. Someone has been keeping her alive from beyond the grave.
For Detective Inspector Helen Grace it’s chilling evidence that she’s searching for a monster who is not just twisted but also clever and resourceful – a predator who’s killed before.
And as Helen struggles to understand the killer’s motivation, she begins to realize that she’s in a desperate race against time . . .

Review

Not a bad book, actually it was a clever one, the criminal was on point but I believe many details could had been added to his behaviour for us to see him clearer but he seemed very real to me.

The storyline was great, the plot fantastic and the descriptions and the storytelling of the victims were omg, chilling. You could grip reality whilst reading it but it was scary.

The only thing I didn’t like was the relationship between Helen and Hardwood, her superior, sharp knives between them were present to stab at every 3-6 pages… But it was a great book with an original ending, not so original plot but a great one, witty.

I can’t give a single fuck anymore

I feel tired of people. People who don’t even care about me, don’t know me, just comment and comment and I ended up fucking hating them. The people in the city I live now are so fucking rude and plain stupid, they care about gossip and unimportant things in life, they act like shit with strangers and with the people that matter in their own lives. I hate them. I hate to hate them but people can be so stupid… I’m currently reading The subtle art of not giving a fuck, again and tbh, it coudln’t come at a better time. Future me, don’t give a fucking fuck and be happy and loving with the people you love, with the people who are nice, respect the ones who respect you and the ones that are plain mean? Tell them to go fuck themselves. Stop tolerating bullshit just to be nice with someone who isn’t even okay with you.

Telling them to go fuck themselves = cutting them from your life, stop seeing them or talk with them.

Disclaimer: strong language, low tolerance to stupidity and mean behavior, also this not my picture, credits to tumblr.

Have a great day folks and be loving and forgiving with your people

Why rock’n roll is good for you

I’ve always listened to this genre, since I was a kid my dad played everything from classic rock to hard rock to country music. My mom played the other amazing half like Queen, Boney M, ABBA and Foreigner so I’ve got some amazing history with the rock music.

I’ve found out how listening to rock’n roll can be beneficial for you in the short and long run and here’s how this magic goes:

  1. Rock’n roll is always positive – when you listen to positive music, positivity will grow inside you and as a result will make your day and life better
  2. Rock’n roll is romantic and sexy – you can pick up someone with a song that sings romance but spells sex anytime. Some songs are so romantic that you just want to stop in the middle of the street, in the middle of the night and just dance under a silver moon with the amazing instruments playing in your ear, but when you listen to the songs carefully you finally realise how goddamn hot it is. They always put you in the mood.
  3. Rockstars are mood swingers – their angelic girlish voice will always make you feel good, positive, powerful and their life stories to the road to success will always boost your mood
  4. Rock’n roll songs are always a good roadtrip choice
  5. They make you do stuff – rock’n roll is a strong music that empower people to do amazing stuff, it can motivate you almost everytime
  6. A lot of amazing, smart, interesting people listen to rock’n roll – so you can always make friends and almost everybody is freaking hot too
