Review: Gone Girl


Gone Girl
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Wow!! What a ride!! I absolutely loved this book! This was a fantabulous and exciting read. So many twists and turns! The characters were surprising and well defined. It is always nice to read a book which has substance. "Gone Girl" not only has substance; it has texture. If "Gone Girl" is not on our To-Read list yet... you have to add it! Great great book!

Review: 30 Days of Relaxation: Fun Meditations for a Stress Free Life


30 Days of Relaxation: Fun Meditations for a Stress Free Life
30 Days of Relaxation: Fun Meditations for a Stress Free Life by Inbar Shahar

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This is a fantastic short book on meditation and relaxation. I enjoyed the way the author structured the book by using the four elements and the beautiful imagery she described every day. I wish I had the book in an audio form; it would be easier to listen to it than to read it and try to remember the beautiful words while meditating.

"30 Days of Relaxation: Fun Meditations for a Stress Free Life" is a great book and I recommend it to whomever would like to try meditation for the first time and to those who are expert at it and are looking at new ways to meditate.

I want to Thank Rob for giving me a copy if his book in exchange for an honest review.

Wow! A lot to digest after I read this book. Rob gives you great insight on how to make it on the Web. I always wanted to know how some people are so successful at selling their trades or ideas on the world wide Web. I now have the tools and need to apply them to do the same.

I really enjoyed this short book and I recommend it to anyone who would like to know how to market yourself on the Web and make money. The book is filled with great tools and tips. Worth reading!

Review: Lose Your Inches Without Losing Your Mind


Lose Your Inches Without Losing Your Mind
Lose Your Inches Without Losing Your Mind by Justine SanFilippo

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

"Lose Your Inches Without Losing Your Mind" is a great step by step book on making healthy choices and lose inches... not weight. The book contains many well knows facts and introduces new ones. What I liked about this book is the way it is organised. It makes it easy for the reader to follow a plan and be successful in their journey to look the way they would like to.

The book is filled with great tips and has a fantastic positive tone which makes it very pleasant to read and be encouraged to apply its principles.

The author proposed that the reader should read one chapter a week to develop the healthy habits described in the chapter. I read the book in a few days and I concur with the author that the one chapter a week would be more effective.

Great book overall; very positive and encouraging too.

Review: This Doesn't Happen In The Movies


This Doesn't Happen In The Movies
This Doesn't Happen In The Movies by Renee Pawlish

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I always loved the old detective film noir. This book has that flavour with a modern twist. I enjoyed the story and the characters. I particularly enjoyed the grand finale which was worthy of a Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep ending.

This was a fun story filled with action and surprising twists. Great read!
