REVIEW BY AMY - Sex, Spoons & Salsa by @IslaDennes
Sex, Spoons & Salsa - Isla Dennes
Thrown into Salsa lessons by her therapist, Fiona stumbles her way from depression to happiness and, numerous disasters later, finally finds her rhythm again.

As if it weren’t bad enough to be living back home with her parents after leaving the Two-timing Lying Bastard, Fiona also finds herself socially ostracized after a drunken dance floor disaster at the Returned Serviceman’s Club Retro Disco, resulting in her father practically frog-marching her off to a psychologist. Sounds very Hollywood, right? Except, when your parents are Scottish, it goes without saying that any therapist is of the budget variety.

As part of her plunge into the surreal world of therapy, Fiona’s instructed to have dance lessons to raise her self-esteem, in the process emptying her father’s wallet and threatening the sanctity of his precious prized spoon collection to foot the bill. And that’s despite Fiona’s three left feet, all of which are ‘rhythm challenged’.

Salsa lessons, secrets and lies, a riotous bachelorette night and a disastrous wedding see Fiona’s life spiraling as wildly out of control as her Salsa. With her therapist’s help, she should be able to see the truth lurking just below the surface and finally take back control once and for all—that is, unless her so-called friends have anything to do with it.
 

Reader's Advisory: This book contains references to implications of emotional abuse and a brief description of dubious consent.

 

@Totally_Bound, @Mommy_Amers, #Humour, #Contemporary, #Romance, 3 out of 5 (good)

The Doll J.C Martin
The Doll - J.C.Martin

A spooky short tale set in Isla de las Munecas The Island of the Dolls it tells the tale of a little girl and her mother who visit the island on a trip were from there.. A series of events happen that is very sinister.

 

I was Really lucky with this one I found it for free while hunting around the kindle store. The cover was what hooked me to it the tale, it's self was extremely impressive the way the plot flowed as well.

 

What I loved most about it is where the story is based it's based on the spooky island of the dolls and it's haunting past. There's so many places in the world that have themes like this, and that Hooked the little Real paranormal fan in me.

 

Give this book a read I promise you it's short but you won't be disappointed.

Mi isla
Mi isla - Elísabet Benavent Cada vez que Elisabet saca libro, allá voy, de cabeza y sin dudar, a pesar de que no siempre acabo igual de ilusionada que empiezo.
Es de lo poquito que leo en español, así que espero bastante emocionada cada lanzamiento. Y sí, me hace sentir. Y sí, también me hace llorar y algunas veces(que no siempre) me hace reír mucho.Pero, y lamento decirlo, también suele llevarme a un punto en el que me dan ganas de arrancarme alguna extremidad y gritar hasta la extenuación. Sí, demasiado.
Me ha pasado con todos sus libros (aunque con Silvia menos) pero éste me ha llegado a poner de mal humor.
¿Seguiré leyendo a Elisabet? Sin lugar a dudas.
¿Lo recomiendo a pesar de las 2 estrellas que le he plantado? Pues, sorprendentemente, sí, lo recomiendo porque entiendo que soy yo la que ha tenido problemas con el desarrollo de esta historia y que esa prota, (que a mi me ha tenido al borde de abandonar el libro, al menos, cuatro veces) a otra persona le puede gustar, la puede entender y puede empatizar con ella.
No es mi caso pero igualmente, adelante!

Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

I love, LOVE this series, these characters, and their settings. I hope this isn't the end.

The story is back in Paris, the school for Americans. Our adventure begins with one red headed short girl, Isla, who is high on medication from having her wisdom teeth removed. She walks into a cafe only to see her crush for the last 3 years sitting in a booth. Her drugged mind finds the courage to talk to him, flirt and make him laugh. This is the beginning of a sweet, hot and heartbreaking romance.
Isla is shy, set in her life style and a bit insecure. She has issues about her body's height challenge and wears high heels even if it makes her feet hurt. She loves with her whole being, but she also fears with her whole heart. This fear, and her giving into it will break your heart.

Josh is the man of her dreams. He was the one she watched love another girl in their circle at school. He is an artist with a reputation of not living by the rules of the school. He gets in trouble, spends a lot of time in detention and seems aloof. He has many little secrets, and some issues of his own to grow through. He is also deeply romantic.
Together these two slowly develop their story. It is paced maidenly slow sometimes and too fast at others. Life steps in and their path is disrupted. He opens his soul to her and the magic happens. There is no violence, no disrespect, no abuse, no typically written High School rudeness. This is a good story/series that needs none of the shock gimmicks to hold it up. They all end in a HEA, and this one was even more deserved than the others IMHO.
