Hello everyone,

How are you all doing? Hopefully everything’s alright

 

As y’all have noticed, I haven’t had the chance to post as often as I used to before…wonder why?
All thanks goes to my major reading slump -_-

It has been weeks now that I’m in no mood/desire to hold a book and read.
Whenever I force myself to, i just have this bothersome feeling, can’t focus with the words and i end up quitting the book.
This issue has left me with worries..it’s not funny at all because I love reading a lot…it feels like a death sentence..taking a break from life itself.

 

I’ve tries reading short stories, other genres…any other solution I could find out there on the internet but to no avail.

I’ve decided to take a break for god knows how long. I don’t want to keep on forcing myself causing more damage than there already is.

 

Hope you all can understand and whoever got some suggestions or went through the same thing, tell me what did you do and how did you overcome it

 

Have a nice day

Lilly

Review: The Donor – Nikki Rae

24039015

Title: The Donor
Author: Nikki Rae
Genre:  Paranormal, Romance
Release Date:  October 30th 2014
Rating: ★★★☆☆/★★★★★
Goodread // Amazon

This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review

 

I had not read a book by Nikki Rae before, and after checking the blurb of this book I was interested to see if I would like its style, characters and the story.
Know that I haven’t read much paranormal/fantasy books before.

The story is told from one point of view, Casey’s to be more precise. It is a short novella set into chapters.

The novella is mainly about two characters: Casey and Jonah. Casey is a young girl who desperately needs money to help support her family, always putting their needs above hers.
Jonah, an older man whom Casey gets to know on a dating website and then flies out to meet him and be his “donor”.

 

Casey has cancer but her family is struggling badly.. her parents already have enough money problems, she never told them about her illness. After Casey discovers MyTrueMatch.com she decides to become a donor for Jonah. She wasn’t sure what it was exactly, but was willing to do it for her parents’ sake.
Jonah as a vampire in his forties, has a daughter with serious health issues and needs a lung transplant. Surprise! Surprise!! who might the match be? you probably thought right

 

I didn’t feel a connection to any of the characters, sadly and I truly don’t know if I like it or not. there are some stuff that did get me confused: The back and forth between past and present, the ending is definitely ain’t a happy one. If you like tragedies, then you might enjoy this.

I salute Nikki though for tackling such a topic like this, in a paranormal style, with a good writing.

Review: Prescription for Love – Zee Monodee

51PIeGruMlL._SY346_.jpg

Title: Prescription for Love (Destiny’s Child #1)
Author: Zee Monodee
Genre:  Romance
Release Date: May 19th 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆/★★★★★
Goodread // Amazon

This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review

 

This is the first book I have read by this author, and it was an interesting, enjoyable yet fast read including a forensic pathologist and a doctor.

The story was a tender romance filled with plenty of emotion.
After Margo Nolan was ruined by one man, she has built a wall and plenty of layers around herself for protection.
She is great at her job as a forensic pathologist. Her work is basically her life until she becomes the guardian of 11-year-old Emma.

After moving, Margo Meets her next door hottie Dr Jamie Gillespie whom she discovers later how good he is with children, and how willing he is to help out with Emma… She has loved her since the day she was born.
Margo was used to living by herself, but now she has more responsibility than just herself, and she wants to be a great mum to Emma.

 

Margo looks like a “cold” tough and complicated character yet tender (due to her past and her occupation that forced her to hide it). It takes her a while to break the ice and come to realise she’s capable of loving; loving her baby girl and falling in love as well.

Jamie is a doctor (he’s younger than Margo) and a mentor to Emma, but he’s also the one that got the skills and qualifications to break through Margo’s walls. How will he be able to do that? it’s up to you to really find out

The storyline is fluent flowing and will have you hooked up on reading till the very last page and so is the style that this story is written in.
Would i recommend it ? ABSOLUTELY!!!!
