Review: Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told
Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told - Deirdre Riordan Hall

Everyone needs a best friend like Katya, someone who loves you enough to push you out of your comfort zone but is there to support you when things fall apart. While I enjoy Navy as a character, her relationship with Katya really made this a lovely story. While following a dare seems like a silly thing to do, I think it speaks a lot about their friendship that Navy was willing to go along with the dates to humor her best friend.

If you've ever had experience dating, you'll really enjoy the dates that Navy endures. While lots of people find "The One" eventually, it does take some work to weed out the other options. You'll get some good laughs as you live the dates with the Hottie in 7G, the Gym Stud and the others.

Don't worry my romance loving friends, this is no insta-love, Navy and Carrick have a long and sordid history. Navy has been holding onto to a lot of guilt from her past and until she can move past it, there is little hope for a real relationship. She's been pining over her fictitious book boyfriends to avoid any actual relationships.

I read a lot of romance novels and sometimes I get burnt out on the same tropes, but this story is one of complexity and I really enjoyed it. Grief can make people do crazy things, I know this from personal experience, so it was nice to be able to see that flaw in the pages of this story.

All in all I would say this book made me laugh and I would recommend it to romance readers.

Aphorisms On Love And Hate
Little Black Classics Aphorisms On Love and Hate - Friedrich Nietzsche

I was a little bit afraid to start this collection of Aphorisms, because the last one I read, another one of the Little Black Classics, was a real disappointment. I'd previously only seen a little bit of Nietzsche in class, but was curious to what he had to say.

I can only speak for this short edition, which had some nice observation on human nature, which I liked although some seemed a bit random and it would have been nice as some more context could have been provided in this edition. On the other hand, his views on women and gender roles are very outdated, especially for someone seeing through a lot of other things. However, he -of course- was also just a man of his time, but I did deduct a star for it.

Little Black Classics #5

A Cold-Hearted Phoenix - Episode 2: A Trip to Hell

So, it has been an awfull long time... I have been very busy, making covers for indie authors and preparing new books.

 

A Cold-Hearted Phoenix - Episode 2: A Trip to Hell is just out! Isn't it cool?

 

Here is the cover and synopsis:

 

 

Parental guidance: 16+

A Cold-Hearted Phoenix is a sweet-and-sour illustrated mini-series in three episodes. It is written in an experimental style, mixing screenwriting with prose.

This book includes 35+ illustrations and a unique layout.

In this second episode: VIKKI, who is out of job and hates summer to the bone, takes a drastic decision to escape the monotony of her life: to go on a trip with Marcus.

Let's watch how VIKKI'S holiday tour becomes a painful and tormented TRIP TO HELL.

 

You can learn more about it and the first episode here: http://tragicbooks.com/

September Wrap-Up

So uhm.. September wasn't what I was exptected it to be. I didn't read much at ALL. School drove me nuts and I went to college for the first time in my life so everything was quite overwhelming (also with traveling and stuff) so I was tired for most of the time. But anyways, here are the books I've read:

 - The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown 4/5 ★ review

- Me, Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews 3.5/5 ★ review

- Aphorisms on Love and Hate by Friedrich Nietzsche 4/5 ★ review

- Burmese Days by George Orwell 5/5 ★ review

- The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman 2/5 ★ review

 

I did only read the last 152 of The Da Vinci Code because I read the rest in August. I also reread 270 pages of the last Harry Potter book. My favorite read this month was definitely Burmese Days!

 

Because I was tired for most of the time I did watch a lot of tv shows:

- Gilmore Girls S03E08 - S03E022 (I rewatched that)

- Great Expectation BBC mini series S01E02 - S01E03

- Orphan Black S02E01-S02E10 (so the entire season 2 and OMG!)

- New Girl s01e01 - S01E20

 

And I've also watched the episodes of these shows when they were airing (so they came onces a week):

- America's Next Top Model s22e05 - S22E08

- Expeditie Robinson (it's a Dutch tv show!) S16E01 - S16E04

- Nashville S04E01

- The Big Bang Theory S09E01

 

It's still not that much compared to August, but still haha.

 

What is your favorite read of September?
