4 Bullet NetGalley Reviews

Alright! I hope you're all having a good morning/afternoon/evening/night. I've got four reviews lined up today. Two of them are manga and two of them are New Age. So sink into a comfy seat, grab a snack and let's get to it! 

***DISCLAIMER***
All of these books came from NetGalley, but I will always be honest with my thoughts. 


The first time I heard the term Earth Angel was from an old song by The Penguins, such an adorable song by the way! I hope you give it a listen. But I never really thought of the term any deeper than a cute song until I saw this book. 

So, I'm not an Earth Angel, I'm an empath but not an Earth Angel and I've never met one either but it was awesome to learn what the author thinks on these subjects. I also love some of the ideas and exercises that are listed in this book and I've tried a few to help me and they work! 

I do think this book could've been slimmed down a but because it felt a little repetitive at times but a lot of books about empaths do because the message is "TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!" over and over. Which makes sense, empaths often forget themselves to help others.

One word can sum up this book: adorable! It's sweet and heartfelt, the art is stunning and I loved watching the friendship grow between the two main characters and how they help each other when needed. 

Now, while I would still recommend this title, it's not my personal favorite because it's just too wholesome. I like my stories to not be so... clean. I want more grit, darkness, adult content and all that good stuff. But it was nice to read a sweet story that left me smiling.

This is a new favorite book for me! I've been wanting to get into reading just plain old playing cards for so long because I just love them so much. Now I can! I also love that each card has a story, just makes it so much richer and easier to remember! Now I just need to go out and buy a really pretty set of cards just for readings. 

The writing is easy to understand and rich when it comes to the story of each card. I couldn't have asked for a better book to help me learn playing cards! 

A must have for anyone who has ever wanted to know about this subject!

The art is lovely. Some of my favorite from the manga world. It's got an almost otherworldly feel to it. It's detailed and just light and pretty. 

The story is another matter.... I don't hate the story but there's just some parts that make no sense to me and kinda threw me out of the story but as I've found, don't judge the first volume in a series like this. Why? So much set up is done so the story can actually move forward. 

There's a nice little cliffhanger that really does make me want to pick up the next volume. So I can't wait to see where this goes. I just hope the story can live up to the art!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,
