Posted on Updated on

Etiquette Book

The third edition of The Etiquette Advantage In Business was written by Peter Post, Anna Post, Lizzie Post, and Daniel Post Senning. It teaches you etiquette in business. It teaches you etiquette skills for tasks such as,  telecommuting, what to wear to work, office parties, shaking hands, and much more. I would recommend this book to anyone with a job or anyone who is looking for one. Whether your etiquette skills are poor, average, or very well you can still increase your etiquette skills from reading this book. I would also recommend this to business owners and also to people who want to open a business someday. This book is very professional and can teach you professional skills. It is easy to understand. It was also reasonably priced. I would give this book 5 stars out of 5.

 

Envy Book Review

Posted on Updated on

Envy Cover

Envy is an Empty Coffin novel by Gregg Olsen. It’s about a pair of telepathic twin sisters who uncover the case of their friends death. Their names are Hayley and Taylor Ryan. Their friend is Katie. What they try to figure out if it was suicide or murder. I know the answer I’m just not telling you because I don’t put spoilers in my book reviews. This is one of the very few mystery books that I have read. Most of the novels that I have read are romance. This time I wanted to try something different. Katie had very low self esteem and also engaged in self harm. Because of this many people assumed that her death was from suicide. One of the things that I didn’t like about this story was how boring the twins personalities were. Even though Katie’s “best friend” was quite a snob I still found her more entertaining to read about than Hayley and Taylor. I also found the twins powers hard to understand while I was reading about them. I didn’t understand how they figured out what their powers were telling them because it was hard to connect to the situation.  But the case itself was okay. It was a little predictable but it wasn’t as predictable as Scooby Doo. But if you compare it to Law and Order, it’s very predictable. I would give this book 2 stars out of 5.

The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault In Our Stars is a beautifully written romance novel by John Green. Its about a Girl named Hazel Grace who has cancer and believes that what ever she does won’t matter because one day everyone will be gone. She had a favorite book that a she felt she could relate to and has written letters to the author of her favorite book Peter Van Houten asking him how his book ends. In his he left a hanger cliff and never wrote a second book to it. But he never responded to her letters. But everything changes after she met Augustus Waters. She met him in a cancer kid support group that she didn’t want to go to but her mom highly suggested her to. At one point Hazel got mad at Augustus for “smoking”. He put a cigarette in his mouth and then she told him that  he has cancer and is giving himself more cancer from smoking. He had the cigarette in his mouth but he never smoked it. After Hazel and Augustus become more and more close they eventually to Amsterdam to meet Hazel’s favorite book author Peter Van Houten. And now I will stop telling you what happens here because I don’t want to spoil too much. But this novel is very romantic and is also a bit educational. It will mention some facts about cancer and also some other educational facts. This book truly shows how it feels to be someone who suffers from life threatening cancer. Although I will admit I had a little trouble adjusting to Hazel at first I grew to like her more and more as I kept reading. This is one of my favorite books and I would totally recommend you read it! Thanks for reading!

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Numerology is a very accurate book that teaches a metaphysical subject called numerology. It was written by Kay Lagerquist, Ph.D whom which is a professional numerologist. This book is also co-authored Lisa Lenard whom which has also co- authored many other metaphysical books. This book is very clear and easy to understand. It interprets and teaches how to calculate your life path number, destiny number, soul number, personality number and much more. Like I said before, it is also very accurate and it comes to show you that there is more to numbers than just math.

Best Loved Fairy Tales is a book that contains 100 beautifully descripted fairy tails by Hans Christian Andersen including some of his most well known stories such as, The Little Mermaid,  Thumbelina, The Ugly Duckling, and many more. It also has beautiful illustrations by Dugald Stewart Walker and Hans Tegner. I also want to point out that people of all ages have enjoyed his stories. Andersen’s stories always opened my mind and made me think of different kinds of morals. I don’t want to spoil the endings of any of his stories. But I will say that I liked every fairytale by him that I have read so far. And believe me, I’m not exaggerating. Im dead serious! Not only did his stories open my mind and were descripted beautifully like I said before. I also found the characters in his stories interesting as well. Wether it was the protagonist or the antagonist. If you like stories that have a lot of meanings, lessons or morals or stories that just open your mind, then you will definitely enjoy this book.

Carrie by Stephen King Review

Posted on Updated on

Carrie is a gory, horror and suspenseful well written book by Stephen King. It is about a teenage girl named Carrie White who gets bullied numerous times at school and has an over religious crazy mother who also treats her very cruelly. In the book Carrie discovers that she had telekinesis after she has her menstrual cycle for the first time. When she first discovered her menstruation she knew absolutely nothing about it and thought that she was bleading to death. First off, I want to let you know that most of the characters in this book are very cruel! I felt sorry for the main character throughout the book. But I must say that Stephen King has quite an imagination and while I did get the chills while reading certain scenes I still enjoyed the book very much! I would give this book 5 stars out of 5. It really made me think about revenge and consequences.

Fallen by Lauren Kate Book Review

Fallen is the first book of it’s own series by Lauren Kate. It is a romance and fantasy (But mostly romance.) novel about a teenage girl named Lucinda Price who is often referred to as “Luce”, and is sent to a reform boarding school called “Sword and Cross” after being accused of murdering a boy by starting a fire. The story is mainly centered around the romance between Luce and a mysterious yet at first rude guy named Daniel Grigori who Luce also finds strangely familiar. However, she also finds herself attracted to another guy at Sword and Cross named Cameron Briel who appears to be very charming and is mainly referred to as “Cam”. Let me stop right there for a second. Although it bothered me that it took a little too long for the book to reach the climax, it bothered me even more that the main character (Luce) kept falling for the at first seeming “bad boy” (Daniel) who flipped her off when they first met and then she has a hard time choosing between him and Mr.Charming (Cam). I don’t dislike Luce, although I did find her pretty naive and found some of the other characters more likeable. But overall, the story is very thrilling and a huge page turner once you reach the climax. Luce eventually finds out why Daniel seemed so familiar and why he acted the way he did at first. I’ll stop right there. I don’t want to spoil the ending. Overall I would give this book 3 1/2 stars out of 5.
