How You Ruined My Life Review

How you ruined my life

My thoughts

Hello, hello, my magical euphorians, I bring to you another review which I found utterly disappointing.

To put it bluntly,  I did not like this book. It was cringy and annoying. The characters were fun to get to know and laugh with here and there. Though some got on my nerves. The pacing was of a constant pace with a few ups, and the writing is simple and understandable though there were some minor grammar errors that caught my eyes.  

The plotline was relatable. We all have that one person in our lives that you swear is just here to simply make your life a living hell.

Anyways I hope you enjoyed this review and will come back next time and maybe bring a friend or two along. 

xoxo, yours truly 😉

The Midnights Review

My Thoughts 

Salut mon petit minion euphorians, how is life treating you? I hope better than me, lol

For today I bring to you the wonderful story of Susannah Hayes in The Midnights. This story has a melancholy feel to it with a side dish of inspirational. 

Through the wondrous power of music, this beautiful story navigates the path of friendship, family, the grief of losing someone, and finding who you are. (Proven once again, music never fails).

The setting description was my favorite part of the book. The scenery and visuals given made me feel like I was right there in Orange County. An unforgettable read, indeed. 

Southern California is perpetually soft and subtropical with the perfect beach breeze, that sweet lick of sunshine, I knew the truth. The real Southern California exists in extremes. It’s a place of spontaneous wildfires, and Santa Ana winds, and droughts that turn lakes into craters, splintering the earth like pottery that has crazed. It’s a place of storms that transform streets into oceans, and I had no doubts now: the rain was coming.

I mean, WOW!

This is the type of story that I will cherish in the subconscious part of my mind for years and years to come. 

I would recommend this book to fans of Sarah Dessen and Meg Cabot 

xoxo, yours truly 😉

And the pain doesn’t get easier. It may lose its priority in your life, but it will always be a big fucking crater right in the center of you. The best you can do is try to keep it from swallowing you whole.

I was afraid that he would slip away until nothing remained but an old photo and a faint longing

My thoughts

Bonjour my beautiful euphorians, I bring to you another review. 

This story caught me off guard in a sweet, funny kind-of-way. Though the cover states otherwise this book is filled with a lot of history lessons dealing with Indians, a little bit on WWII, and the controversy surrounding the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). 

Beyond the Green is a thrilling, touching, and humorous read that speaks of the human morality, responsibility, family, love, and not-so-subtle history lessons. It follows the journey of a little Mormon girl, Britta, who learns the secrets of the world and the different types people in the world in accordance with religion, ethnicity, and race.  The story is so real and authentic and I could not help but feel connected to it. The reason for this is because the book is spiked from the real events in the author’s own life. What I found surprising and interesting was that I did not cry while reading, I felt like I should have but I did not. I felt touched and good. 🙂

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. 

xoxo, yours truly 😉

Differ’nt don’t necessirly mean worse, Britta-girl,” he said. “Sometimes it means better. Sometimes it just means differ’nt. And thank goodness for differ’nt. Too much sameness would make for a might bland world.

My thoughts

Bonjour my euphorians, long time no blog. Before I start, can we just give a moment of silent and admire how beautiful this cover is?  I mean just…WOW!

These Rebel Waves is a good read that can be more than what it is now. The writing was my style, simply formal. None of that kindergarten generic writing shit that gets on my nerves. The pacing needs an upbeat to it. Moments which should have been action filled and heart pumping felt dull and boring.

There are very obvious American historical and present issues represented in the book which I found to be delightfully new and refreshing. History (and still present) of religious persecution, immigration issues, freedom, equality, and so much more was brilliantly shown throughout Sara Raasch’s work. 

I like the new approach to magic with the plants and all but in the book, it didn’t go anywhere and I felt that there was so much more that could have been done with the ‘magic herbs’ and whatnot. All the plants did was poison, cure and causes some explosions here and there which is the same purpose they serve in the real world. I wished more “fantasy” aspects were put into the idea like some plants gave you super strength or spit fire or make one sing like an angel. You feel me? 

xoxo, yours truly 😉

Family traditions became as rare as sugar-delicious when they had it, but not crucial to their survival.

Better to wound your ego with compromise than feed your own pride with blood
