Book Review: Love & Other Phobias By Emma Nichols
Love & Other Phobias - Emma Nichols


* I received a complimentary early copy of this book because I supported it on Kindle Scout.


The writing style did wonders for this novel, but a few things bothered me throughout the story. However, I loved how willing and open the main characters were to getting help for their mental issues and made it a point to actively seek out the help they needed.


Sophie has been through a lot. She's gotten to a point where she has backup plans for her backup plans. She's a recluse who has made it big from posting nail art videos online and well-planned investments. My only problem with her was how her problems seemed to start disappearing a day after she met Cameron. I can only suspend my belief for so long.


Cameron was a gentle giant, but he has a mean side when pushed to the edge. He's been through a lot in his life. I liked how, in a way, Sophie and Cam help "fix" each other throughout the story to a certain degree. What ended up leaving a bad taste in my mouth was the secret Cam kept until a few chapters from the end. It was only "revealed" because of pure happenstance. I understand, that ultimately, it wasn't his fault but he shouldn't have kept everything going while knowing she didn't know the full story. I also didn't understand why he hung around her to the point that he did. What ever happened to him having a job?


I was so engrossed in the story that I didn't see the brother and the BFF plot twist. Though it caught me blindsided, it got resolved way too easily. I'd also like to point out the lack of character development for the secondary characters. It felt like they were there only to further the plot line. It didn't feel like they had any substance to them.


Overall, this was a good story with a few details that rubbed me the wrong way. The main characters were very likable, but everything moved too fast to make it believable. I would have loved to have gotten to know the fire department aspect of the story. It would have made for a great series of spinoffs stories if any of Cam's friends had been presented organically throughout the story.


My Favorite Quotes:


"I'm not remotely athletic. I believe working out is a special kind of torture, and food is meant to be enjoyed."


"Life isn't fair [...]. Sometimes the bad guy wins. Sometimes dark conquers the light. Sometimes we forget to chase after our dreams, and we let the ones we love get away."


"Face your fears. Embrace the pain. Take a chance."

Ouroboros Symbolism and its Spiritual Meanings

 are the language of the Symbols can not be mentally comprehended.
To understand the power of symbols, we have to dig into an ancient wisdom of our myths and legends and try to comprehend the knowledge we receive from the sacred art.

Defining an Ouroboros as an ancient symbol of eternity, means nothing. It is like trying to connect any of the symbols to , Tao, un-explainable, un-measurable Life Force.

Truths and Roses: A Love Story - Inglath Cooper

A sweet story about the trials and tribulations of a star crossed couple.  The two of them could not workout their togetherness, until they put the past behind. This was a good easy read.

BLANKY by Kealan Patrick Burke
Blanky - Kealan Patrick Burke


BLANKY is a powerful novella, full of grief, pain, and horrors previously unknown-those both real and imagined.


You can't let Kealan deceive you with that innocent looking cover. Any of you already familiar with his work wouldn't fall for that anyway. This is a tale that touches on everything it is to be human, both good and bad.


The time we spend with our families, even the irritating or angry times, are all something special. We may only want to focus on the fun, good memories, but that's not reality. BLANKY makes you think about, made ME think about- exactly what reality is.


With this story, be prepared to bring a piece of yourself and leave it upon the altar of Kealan Patrick Burke.


My highest recommendation. Period.


*I bought this novella with my hard earned money and reading it cost a small piece of my soul.*

Some Library Love. I pre-ordered Silence Fallen for my nook to go with the rest of my Meryc Thompson series, but I've yet to read the book. I'v been feeling like having physical books to read, so I grabbed this from my library!
