#bookreview …La Liste – By Jérémy Demay – A list of 10 books to help ourlife

Jérémy Demay is a French comedian that arrived in Quebec, Canada 10 years ago. He came with a dream, and without friends and family, so far away from home, he had to fight to achieve it. He wanted to be a famous comedian. Unfortunately, not long after his arrival, Jérémy Demay suffered from depression. Realizing that something has to change in his life, he started to work on himself and after a lot of suffering and hard work he finally managed to see the light. He is now living his dream. He decided to share with his audience things that helped him improved and things that helped him with his depression.

I received this book as a Christmas present from one of my dearest family members and I thank him for giving me this book.

In his book La Liste, Jérémy Demay shares techniques to improve our own self and books that one should read in order to be able to do so. I will list all the books (that I added on my To Read goodreads account) because I want as well to improve my person. I want to be able to live for myself and not care what people around me say or think about me. I want too to live my dreams and I want to fight for them, but I feel sometimes this urge to give up, for no specific reason; from fear. Here are the books that  Jérémy Demay suggests we should read in order to improve and grow as a person:

1. The Artist’s Way, A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity ‘s Way – Julia Cameron

615570

2. Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Reflechissez Et Devenez Riche / Think and Grow Rich [Translated] (French Edition) by [Hill, Napoleon]

9. Stillness Speak – Eckhart Tolle

If you are struggling in your life and you don’t know in which direction to go, if you wonder how to find your inner peace, if you want to live a happy and a quiet life, I hope these books will help you as they helped Jérémy Demay. I really want to make some changes in my life so all the above books are added to my list and I will read them one by one and work hard to achieve the life that I want. Just remember: There is no such thing as too hard or too late! If you want it (with all your heart and mind) you will have it!

I do recommend this book and 5 stars are a must ❤!

#bookreview … Marley & Me by John Grogan

Overview: 

Marley & Me by John Grogan is a nonfiction book. John and his future wife were just starting their life together and they decided to adopt a puppy. They fell in love with Marley, a Labrador retriever, who was indeed amazingly cute as a puppy. What they didn’t know, is that Marley was to give them the hardest times of their lives. Even so, John and his wife loved him till the end and Marley proved to them that no matter how bad the behavior, a dog is a man’s best friend. 

My review:

I bought this book, in French, at a garage sell and I was super excited to read it. The book is so well written that from the beginning I could imagine that I was there with them, living all the excitement that one feels when a puppy is brought to the family. Soon I was laughing with tears at all the craziness that Marley was creating around him. I couldn’t help but question myself if I would be able to keep such a ‘troubled dog’. I was reminded over and over again, by Marley’s sweet behavior that no matter how the dog acts, once you decide to adopt you cannot change your mind. A dog should stay with its owner for life, as once he came into the master’s home, he is now part of the family. I fell in love with Marley. He was crazy, and he was chewing everything that crossed his path, he was not listening at all but he was always loving and caring when the time would ask for it. As the writer said at one point, Marley basically shows us that a simple life is a happy life. 

Where to get the book: 

If you wish to read this book, which I highly recommend, you can check on Goodreads to see where you can get it from or try your local library:

10 #books for a bookworm

With the winter holidays around the corner, we always wonder what could be the perfect gift. If you are like me and you buy your stuff whenever you need them, than you are hard to shop for. Some people might think that something that represents Christmas is the way to go because what else could you buy to someone that already has everything they need, right? My answer would be: not exactly. If someone has the pleasure to buy me something, I suggest something that I might actually use and enjoy.

I’m a bookworm and everyone around me knows it. I find that the bookworms are the easiest people to shop for. Here is a list of books that I would love to have and I am pretty sure other bookworms might enjoy:

  1. Spilled Milk: Based on a true story – by K.L Randis

18858489

2. A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story – by Linda Sue Park

7981456

3. Paperboy – by Vince Vawter

15797693

4. One Crazy Summer Paperback – by Rita Williams-Garcia

13639804

5. The One and Only Ivan – by Katherine Applegate

11594337

6. You Will Not Have My Hate – by Antoine Leiris

29639954

7. The Best Kind of People – by Zoe Whittall

29220492

8. The Couple Next Door – by Shari Lapena

28815474

9. Safe With Me – by K.L. Slater

31489055

Conclusion: If you have to shop for a bookworm you can always give them a book. Like this, you know that you really made them happy. 🙂

Piece of advice: Before shopping online always make sure that you choose the correct format as books come in different forms: paperback, hardcover, for kindle and audio.

Enjoy the books and Happy Reading! 🙂

#bookreview …Listen (Earthen Witch #3) by Sarah Doughty

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I was just reading the first book when I got an email from this amazing author asking me if I would like to read the third book that was not yet out there. My answer was immediately Yes! Of course I want to know how things will turn out before anyone else did!

Listen is the third book in the Earthen Witch series. The good thing about it, is that I read the third book and even though I barely stared the first one, I was able to follow the story so well. This was basically because the writer, Sarah Doughty, made it so easy for the reader to follow the story. She made sure that explanations from previous stories were included whenever the reader might start to feel lost.

Aisling Green is an Earthen witch that is trying to save her friends that are in some serious trouble. Together with her soul mate and their friends are fighting the evil and try to bring back their team that in the end is their family. Now, here is what really grabbed my attention and really made me happy (I really had a huge smile on my face): at some point in the book a Romanian character appears and is one of my favorite characters. I am not going to say who it is, because I don’t want to spoil it for you, but being the fact that I am Romanian it was a pleasant and unexpected surprise.

Is Aisling succeeding in her plans to save her friends? Well, I guess you will have to find out, but let me tell you that personally I can’t wait for the forth book to come out.

You can find out more about the author, Sarah Doughty here HEARTSTRING EULOGIES and you can also follow her on Goodreads: Sarah Doughty on Goodreads .

Thanks for reading! I hope you will enjoy this story just as much as I did, or more!
