I don’t understand. This book has an overall rating of 4+ something on Goodreads. Why?
I definitely did not like this book.
The characters were the same people I’ve read about on many other books. On this book, though, they weren’t written to be more interesting. At all.
The heroine, Maggie, started out really great. I liked her right away. I disliked her just as fast. For someone who started out as a strong character, she ended up as a wimp, becoming too focused on the boyfriend who had way too many issues.
How can people mistake something very destructive as love?
I guess that’s how first love is supposed to be. However, don’t people realize that first love should be all about the experience, the highs, the good stuff. Anything this deep or massive or complicated really does not give a good influence or impression.
I don’t understand why a lot of readers liked this book. For me, it’s just a bit too ambitious. Plot was not getting anywhere. Conflict was not really interesting. Characters were all over the place. Lots of typographical and editing errors.

I don’t really intend to make this blog sound like I’m promoting any product.
However, I do want to write about a new discovery I made over the web today.
I was looking for free logo makers because I needed a logo for my website. It’s a new site, so I haven’t really done anything about it yet.
I found DesignMantic.com, and all my logo woes were addressed. I loved their designs! My problem was initially finding a great looking logo that I could use. When I found DesignMantic, I now find myself unable to choose which logo I want to use because all their logos look really great and unique.
The steps are really easy. First, you enter the name of your company. If you are creating a logo for your site or blog, you can use your blog title or site name as well. Then you get to a page where you can choose the icons you like. You can use a keyword if it helps narrow down your choices. When you’ve chosen your design, you can now proceed to downloading it. You also have an option to design your business card as well. After that, you can finally download your new logo and use it.
DesignMantic.com is indeed a great tool. I’m glad I found this site. If you are looking for a logo for your site, your business or your blog, you have to check out DesignMantic.com. I am sure you will have a memorable time coming up with the best design to use for whichever purpose you have,
This would probably be one of the saddest books I have ever read. It’s not a tear-jerking drama. There weren’t a lot of conflict or antagonists to make the love story complicated. It’s really just how the book was written that makes it so sad.
It did not leave me with a good feeling when I finally finished it. For a romance novel, the book was made up more of the estrangement between the hero and heroine and left only a few pages for their reconciliation and happy-ever-after.
As for the hero? I cannot imagine that a man like him exists. Oh, sure, Max Logan had it all -looks, money, success. But for all he had, he lacked a heart. I cannot imagine a man who could be so unfeeling, so insensitive, so doubtful, so unloving. I did not fall in love with his character at all. I kept wishing that Gabriella would, in fact, move on, find another man who loved her and was not afraid to show the whole world and that Max would be left alone, old, and grumpy.
Gabriella as a heroine was not perfect. However, I really liked her. At least, she was mature enough to be honest about everything. She was also forgiving and most of all, she was not afraid to love and admit it.
Catherine Spencer did a great job with this book. Any reader can easily feel the things that the characters were going through. Kudos to her. However, no matter how beautifully this book was written, I did not like it at all. In the end, it gave me a depressing mood, and it’s not how I want to end things with every book I read.

I really enjoyed this book.
It has been a while since I read a book that made me laugh and feel like I was part of the clique.
Caroline, the heroine, was not at all like any girl found in fiction. She seemed like a real person, a practical romantic. A girl who could stand on her own, travel alone, and still enjoy the liberties of the modern world.
Simon, for all his harem’s worth, was a real enough guy who snores and eats a lot.
The friends were really great people. It makes you, as a reader, wish that you had friends like the ones in the book.
The chemistry was amazing.
The way that Alice Clayton wrote this book was different from the rest, which sets the book apart.
I think I found a new favorite author.

The moment we tell ourselves that we are owed something for the things we’ve done is the moment we lose our true value and purpose.
Sometimes, we reach a point where everything is just how we want things to be.
When you’re at this point, be thankful. Celebrate every moment. Live every day. Glorify the Lord in the best way you know how. Say your prayers of thanks.
These moments won’t always last. But there is always something greater.
It is not true what they say that when you’re already there, there is no other way to go but down. The truth is, when you reach the peak of everything you’ve aimed for, when you’re already at the top, there is STILL another way up. You carve a way up. You defy expectations. You empower yourself.
Thank you, Lord, for everything you have blessed me with. I always ask for more not because I am never satisfied but because I know you can give more and you always do. It is because I have faith that you only give what is good. I know your plans are to prosper me. I know you will take me there.
