Pillow Thoughts II: Healing the Heart | Review

Review

This book was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Andrews McMeel Publishing and Netgalley!

Pillow Thoughts II: Healing the Heart is a poetry collection of inspirational and comforting poems for those who are mending their broken heart.

You shouldn’t lose sleep over somebody any more than they should lose sleep over you. Buy you do, we all do.
And we call this love.

Pillow Thoughts II: Healing the Heart is such a beautiful poetry collection. I loved every poem from this collection because they were so relatable and beautifully written. I requested this book on Netgalley because the cover intrigued me and the synopsis sounded promising, but I didn’t expect Pillow Thoughts II to be this good!



The only negative thing I have to say is that the poems had no titles, which made it hard to make a ‘favourite poems’ list. But hey, if all the poems had titles, the list would probably never-ending!

It’s in the moments you want to turn to them and share good or bad news that you realise how much of a hole is in your heart when they aren’t with you. All you want is for the person you love most to be by your side.

I really enjoyed reading this poetry collection, I finished it in one day and I cannot wait to read more poetry books written by Courtney Peppernell!

Surviving Adam Meade | Review

Title: Surviving Adam Meade

Publisher: Swoon Reads
Rating: ★★★★★
*4.5/5*

Review

This book was provided by the publisher through Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Swoon Reads and Xpresso Book Tours!

Surviving Adam Meade tells the story of Claire and Adam. Claire changed schools in her senior year and she just wants to finish high school and go to college. Everything is going well until she meets Adam. Adam is determined to get a football scholarship and always gets what he wants until he meets Claire.

I really liked this story because I think every senior who’s in a relationship can relate to this book. When I was a senior, I was also thinking about studying and missing my boyfriend. I also really like Surviving Adam Meade because it’s such a light read. You can read this whenever you’re feeling down or happy because it’s such a nice distraction but not something that takes too much effort like some of the fantasy books I read.

I really loved Surviving Adam Meade because it was fast paced and well written. I had to keep reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen between Claire and Adam. I think that this book would’ve been even better if it would be New Adult instead of Young Adult. There was so much chemistry between Claire and Adam and a New Adult version would’ve made the book perfect!

Overall I loved reading Surviving Adam and I cannot wait to read Finding Claire Collins!

Surviving Adam Meade by Shannon Klare
(Surviving Adam Meade, #1)
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: August 14th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Seventeen-year-old Claire Collins has a plan: get into college and leave North Carolina behind. What she doesn’t have is an idea for how to get rid of the local football star and womanizer extraordinaire—Adam Meade, who she can’t even avoid (despite many efforts), because Claire’s dad is the high school football coach.
Seventeen-year-old Adam Meade never fails. He always gets what he wants… until he meets Claire, the new girl who leaves him unnerved, pissed off, and confused. But there’s something about her that he just can’t resist…
With the bite of lemon meringue pie and the sugar of sweet tea, Surviving Adam Meade is a sexy and compelling young adult novel about two strong-willed people who think they know what they want but have no idea what they need.


Author Bio
Shannon Klare is a southern housewife, born and raised in Texas. When she isn’t writing or daydreaming new plots, Shannon is a reality TV fanatic and movie connoisseur. Surviving Adam Meade is her debut novel.

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Ranata Suzuki!

The Longest Night is a poetry collection about heartbreak and grief. We all experience heartbreak and grief in our lives and that’s what this book is about. The Longest Night is divided into three chapters, and each chapter has a different theme of poems.

When Ranata Suzuki asked me if I was interested in reviewing her book, I was really thrilled. She was my first ever poetry author that reached out to me, so I was really excited to read her book. And to be honest, I just loved it. I couldn’t stop reading The Longest Night, I also finished it in one day. It’s just such a beautiful poetry collection!


My favourite poems:
  • A Parallel Universe
  • Fate
  • A Letter to the Sun From the Dark Side of the Moon
  • The Descent
  • Loves Reason
  • She Wears It Well
  • ‘Tu Me Manques’
  • Tainted Memories
  • The Depths
  • I Loved You
  • Hurt
  • I Wish We Could Pretend
  • Happy You’re Happy
  • Love of a Lifetime
  • Crossing Paths

A lot of these poems were so relatable or just so beautiful! I also really liked the drawings. I love it when it’s not just poetry but some drawings because it makes the book even more beautiful! 
I cannot wait to read more poetry written by Ranata Suzuki because I just know that I’ll love it too!

Top 5 favourite books of 2018 (Guest post written by Leslie)

Shirley asked me to pick my top 5 favourite books and there was no way that I could pick my top 5 favourite books. It’s just impossible and it would take me forever to get it down to 5. Instead, I’m going to do my top 5 of this year! It’s been a great year so far, this is not easy. These are books that I have read this year, not necessarily books released this year. These are in no particular order. I have full reviews of all these on my blog.

1. Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi 

I loved this book so much because I really related to Penny. There were just a lot of similarities. I really enjoyed the story and thought that Choi’s writing was amazing. I think it’s so relevant to today because everyone is so immersed in social media. A great book!

2. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff 

I haven’t read anything like this before. This book is dark and brutal but I loved it so much. Mia is such a fascinating character. There are a lot of twists and turns. Surprisingly, there’s a lot of humour too.

3. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia 

This was an unexpected love for me. I’m not a huge contemporary fan and I wasn’t sure that I was going to like it. I loved the online forum aspect and what happens because of it. There’s talk about mental illness and I just adored Eliza! A must read.

4. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black 

This book really kicked off my reading this year. I had really stepped away from the reading world for a couple of years. A couple of friends recommended it to me and I loved it. I really enjoy fantasy but I especially love the Fae. A book with great characters!

5. Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen 

I’m really surprised that I don’t hear more about this book. I loved it. It’s really dark and heartbreaking. It’s brilliantly done and I couldn’t put it down. It was a slow start but once it gets going, it doesn’t stop.

What are your favourite books of 2018 so far?

Counterfeit Boyfriend | Review

Title: Counterfeit Boyfriend
Author: Cindi Madsen
Pages: 272 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Rating: 

Review

This book was provided by the author through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Cindi Madsen and Netgalley!

Counterfeit Boyfriend tells the story of Ethan and Gwen. Ethan’s twin brother talked him into going on a road trip with Gwen, his brother’s girlfriend, so his twin could party with his friends. He agrees to go on a road trip, but he didn’t plan on falling in love with Gwen…

Counterfeit Boyfriend was such a fast-paced and easy read. I loved reading this book because the story was so well written and I couldn’t stop reading. I had to know what was going to happen and I’m so glad that I read this book.

I love Ethan and Gwen. Ethan is such an amazing guy even though he’s stupid enough to take his brother’s place. Gwen is such a fun and loveable character. I loved reading from both perspectives because you got to know the characters so well.

This is the second book I’ve read by Cindi Madsen and this one is by far the best one I’ve read written by her! I cannot wait to read more books from Cindi Madsen!

Top 5 favourite teas part 2

Here I am with another top 5 favourite teas! I just love more teas than just 5 so here’s another 5!

1. Clipper Zen Again
Zen Again is the second Clipper tea that I’ve tried and I fell in love with this one again. Zen Again is an organic infusion tea with lemongrass, eucalyptus and ginkgo. This tea is just amazing and so delicious like the Love Me Truly tea and I cannot wait to try out another Clipper tea.

2. Kruidvat Beauty Kruidenthee (Dutch)
Kruidvat is a Dutch store and they have all sorts of things and one of those things is tea. The Beauty tea has raspberries, lemon and elderflower in it. It’s a herbal tea which means that it’s not really a sweet tea, but it’s still really delicious.

3. Lipton Forest Fruit


Like I mentioned in my previous top 5 favourite teas, I love berry-flavoured teas and this one is also a favourite of mine. The Lipton Forest Fruit is a tea with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, red currants and cherries. It’s a really sweet tea and it was one of the first teas that I’ve ever drunk and I even think that this tea got me into drinking tea.


4. Higher Living Green Tea Coconut
I love everything that smells like coconut. Is there a shampoo? I need it! Is there a lip balm? I need it! Is there a bath bomb? I need it! And when I saw the Higher Livnig Green Tea Coconut, I just had to try it! Higher Living is such an affordable tea and I really like their teas. Green Tea Coconut is a green tea with a hint of coconut and I really like it!



5. Pickwick Fruit Fusion Variation Box
This Pickwick tea box contains 4 different kinds of flavours, namely: Cherry & Blackcurrant, Raspberries & Strawberries, Mango & Orange and Lemon & Pineapple. I really like this tea box because you have 4 kinds of flavours in 1 box, it’s super handy if you would like to travel with it.

Supernatural Slayer | Review

Title: Supernatural Slayer
Series: Supernatural Slayer #1
Author: Devyn Jayse
Pages: 238 pages
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Rating: ★★★★

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Devyn Jayse!

Supernatural Slayer tells the story of Aisha, who’s a half-witch bounty hunter and assassin. One day she accidentally targets the wrong person, so the Supernatural Bureau of Investigation offers her a deal: work for them or go to jail.

Supernatural Slayer was such an amazing Fantasy/Paranormal read. It’s been a while since I read a Fantasy or Paranormal book with a lot of different supernatural beings in it, so it was nice to finally read a good one! I really enjoyed reading Supernatural Slayer because I really like the concept.

Supernatural Slayer was a bit slow in the beginning, but the more I read the more I began to love it. The concept is amazing, the characters are lovable – especially Raphael, and I really like Devyn Jayse’s writing, although she does use a lot of short sentences.

I didn’t expect the book to be a bit steamy, but I really liked it! I cannot wait to read the sequel, Immortal Blood, and discover what Aisha got to do next for the SBI!

I also want to say that I really love the cover because it really fits the description of the main character, Aisha, and it’s just so beautiful!

Excerpt

I looked down at my broken dagger then back up to the asshole who had destroyed its blade. This was the third time this week that a shifter had pissed me off.
"Did you seriously just break my dagger?’ I glared at the wolf. His yellow eyes glimmered back at me. The assignment had been to retrieve the shifter alive, but right now I was very tempted to kill him.
"Just turn yourself in and no one will get hurt,’ I said, trying to be calm. I ran my thumb along my damaged weapon and wondered idly if it could be salvaged. ‘The bounty is for you to be delivered alive. Continue to fight me and I can’t guarantee you’ll walk away from this.’
The shifter lowered his head and growled at me. He had transformed into a wolf as soon as I had exposed my dagger, shifting to his most powerful fighting body. I had to make do with the one I had. As a half-witch, I was statistically supposed to be weaker than the shifter, but my unknown father’s blood had given me speed and strength that regular witches couldn’t claim. I reached deep inside me for my magic and let go. It was reassuring to know that it was there, but I was determined to win this fight without it.
I circled the shifter. The wolf followed my motions, his hackles raised. It had been a while since I had fought a shifter in wolf-form, but I was sure I could best him. He may have strength and power on his side, but I had training and skills on mine.
"You want to play? Let’s play.’ I tossed the remains of the broken dagger to his feet and his head swung toward it. With my left hand, I swiftly removed another dagger from within the sheath strapped to my back and ran toward him.

Taste the good life with Tastea


Ik heb een pakketje ontvangen van Tastea met de Sunset Ice Tea en een theebeker. Toen ik deze thee ontving, was ik so excited om deze uit te proberen aangezien ik ervan hou om thee te drinken en nog nooit ice tea had gemaakt!

I received a package from Tastea with the Sunset Ice Tea and a tea infuser bottle. When I received this tea, I was so excited to try this one out because I love drinking tea and never made ice tea before!


De Sunset Ice Tea is een tea blend van appel, hibiscus, wortel, peer (peer, rijstmeel), citroenschillen, natuurlijke aroma, perzik (perzik, rijstmeel), gojibes en saffloerblaadjes. Deze thee moet warm geserveerd worden en is het beste wanneer hij koud is. Je moet heet water toevoegen aan een paar gram thee en het dan laten afkoelen. Je kan altijd ijs toevoegen als je dat leuk vindt.

The Sunset Ice Tea is a tea blend of apple, hibiscus, carrot, pear (pear, rice flour), lemon peels, natural flavouring, peach (peach, rice flour), goji berry and safflower petals. This tea needs to be served hot and tastes best when it’s cold. You have to add hot water to a few grams of tea, and then let it cool down. You can always add ice if that’s what you like.

Toen ik deze thee opende, was de geur het eerste wat me opviel, het is zo'n lekkere geur! Ik heb geprobeerd de Sunset Ice Tea warm en koud te drinken en ik hou eigenlijk van beide. Ik hou van de fruitige smaak en deze ijsthee is perfect voor dit warme weer. Ik voeg altijd een klein beetje suiker toe, omdat ik mijn thee altijd met suiker drink, en de rest is gewoon de magie van de Sunset Ice Tea.

When I opened this tea, the first thing I noticed was the smell, it’s such a nice smell! I tried drinking the Sunset Ice Tea hot and cold and I actually love both. I love the fruity flavour and this ice tea is perfect for this hot weather. I always add a tiny bit of sugar, because I always drink my tea with sugar, and the rest is just the Sunset Ice Tea doing its magic.

Wolf Games | Review

Title: Wolf Games
Series: The Vampire Games #4
Author: Caroline Peckham
Version: Ebook (ARC)
Pages: 273 pages
Release date: 3 August 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Caroline Peckham!

Wolf Games is the fourth book in The Vampire Games series and continues the story of Jameson and Cass. The V Games are over and now they both live in The Sanctuary until some bad things happen and Jameson has to leave with Ulvic and Cass is being captured by IDAHO.

Wolf Games was yet again an amazing sequel. I loved that this book was more about Jameson and Cass because Selena and Varrick got their happily ever after so it was nice to read more about Jameson and Cass. I loved that The Vampire Games series is still not over and that Caroline continues the story by writing about Jameson and Cass.

I love reading in Jameson and Cass’ perspectives because they’re so different from Selena and Varrick, but still so interesting to read about. Jameson is so much fun and has such a big ego, in a funny way. Cass is also someone I could consider as a friend because I really like her personality. I also think that they are a match made in heaven!

Wolf Games had so many plot twists that I didn’t see coming and was just in general such an amazing read with so many new things to process. I discovered so much more about the world Caroline has created and I couldn’t stop reading. I had to finish this book because I had to know how it was going to end. And wow… I really need the 5th book because I cannot handle an end like that. So Caroline, hurry up!

I highly recommend The Vampire Games series because it’s such a well written and fast-paced series!

July wrap up

In July I read a total of 12 books, I watched 51 episodes (TV shows) and I watched 6 movies. Read further to know what I read and watched this month!

The first book that I read in July was another ARC copy: Saving Grace (A Broken Heart #1) by Vi Carter. Besides Saving Grace, I also read Seeking Sanctuary (Shelter Me #1) by Annie Anderson, Pillow Thoughts II: Healing the Heart by Courtney Peppernell, Counterfeit Boyfriend by Cindi Madsen, The Gilded King (Sovereign #1) by Josie Jaffrey, Wolf Games (The Vampire Games #4) by Caroline Peckham, Surviving Adam Meade (Surviving Adam Meade #1) by Shannon Klare, Coming Home (Friends & Lovers Series #2) by P.E. Kavanagh, Supernatural Slayer (Supernatural Slayer #1) by Devyn Jayse, Glimmerglass Girl by Holly Walrath and The Longest Night by Ranata Suzuki.

Saving Grace, Seeking Sanctuary, Pillow Thoughts II: Healing the Heart, Counterfeit Boyfriend, The Gilded King and Wolf Games are definitely some of my new favourite books!


Besides all the ARC copies I read this month, I read a short story called Living Underground by Josie Jaffrey. I also tried reading Valentine: Act I by Elliott Morreau but that wasn’t really something for me.

For TV shows I started watching a new show, My Dead Ex. I randomly stumbled upon this show, and it sounded really interesting. I watched all 8 episodes in one day, and I really liked it. I also started the show American Gothic, which is a really interesting TV show! I finished watching season 1 of Zoo and then I started the second and third season. Besides My Dead Ex and Zoo, I also watched Younger and started watching The Originals again. I watched the first episode of the second season of Legion, but I decided to stop watching the TV show because I didn’t really like it.


And for movies I watched Doctor Strange, Wonder Woman, Midnight Sun, The Incredibles 2, Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (not really a movie but I wanted to mention it because it was amazing!) and Hush.

The Gilded King | Review

Title: The Gilded King
Series: Sovereign #1
Author: Josie Jaffrey
Pages: 292 pages
Version: Paperback (ARC)
Rating: ★★★★★

Review

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Josie Jaffrey! 

The Gilded King tells the story of Julia and Cameron. Julia is stuck in the Blue and needs to work as a server until she meets Lucas. Lucas believes in fairytales and Julia wants to believe in them but she can’t.
Cameron is looking behind the walls of the Blue, the Red, for their lost queen and discovers so many things, including a rising enemy…

The Gilded King is the first book in the Sovereign series, a spin-off series for the Solis Invicti series, and is yet another amazing book written by Josie Jaffrey. I loved reading the Solis Invicti series and I was so excited and happy when Josie asked me if I wanted to read The Gilded King!

I really love that Julia and Cameron don’t really have something in common, but you can still read in both perspectives. You get to know how people live in the Blue and how people live in the Red and how everything changed. I love the relationship between Julia and Lucas, but I don’t really know what to think about Cameron and Felix. I loved them so much but then the last few chapters kind of changed my mind…

I loved The Gilded King and I cannot wait to read the other books in the Sovereign series. I love Josie Jaffrey’s writing, so I know that I’m going to love all the other books!

The Sovereign series is a spin-off series and you don’t have to read the Solis Invicti series, but I do recommend reading it because 1. it’s amazing and 2. you know a lot more about the world Josie Jaffrey has created so it’s easier to read the Sovereign series. The Sovereign series also contains some spoilers for the Solis Invicti series, so I recommend reading the Solis Inviciti series first and then the Sovereign series.

I really like this toner because it’s made for sensitive skins and helps reduce redness. I really like using this toner after removing my make-up because there still some dirt left and this toner really helps!

Graphic liner inspired by Kayteeellen | Tutorial

I love love love Kayteeellen because she’s so talented with make-up and she’s a huge inspiration for me! When you look at her Instagram, you can find colourful looks as well as graphic liner looks, and I wanted to make a graphic liner look inspired by her.

I hope you guys like this look as much as I do and you can always give me some ideas for other tutorials!

1. Draw how you want your eyeliner to look with a light hand so that you can easily correct mistakes. I used my regular eyeliner but you can always use another type of eyeliner!

2. Make your liner thicker and more precise. This can be a hard step so take your time to avoid making mistakes.

3. Add glitter primer and glitter to your eyelid. This was a bit tricky because the glitter was on the liner and then the liner wasn’t as black as it used to, so I had to go over it with my eyeliner again.

4. Smudge some gel liner on the bottom lashes and make a fine line above your lashes so that it’s easier to apply the false lashes.

5. Apply some mascara and false lashes.


6. Highlight your face with a highlighter that matches your glitter.

7. And the final step is lipstick. I went with a pinkish-purple lipstick because it matched the glitter.

And that’s it! 🖤
