TRAIN WRECK BY: ELISE FABER
Train Wreck (Life Sucks Book 1) - Elise Faber

 

Train Wreck was like a breath of fresh air. It was so cute, light, sweet and funny and it was impossible to not be charmed by Pepper and all her adorkableness. She was honestly one of the most refreshing new characters that I have read in awhile. I think we have all felt like a train wreck of sorts at one time or another, and Pepper managed to make it feel okay to embrace that a little. Or at the very least accept it and still be able to face the day with a smile and a can-do attitude.

 

Pepper and Derek were really cute together. I liked the idea of these two both out trying to find their own way in life, free of the family expectations that don't quite fit them, and ultimately finding a new way together. Even if they were kind of fumbling through it at first, actually that might have been my favorite part.

 

This is the perfect little rom-com that pulls your right in from the beginning and has you rooting for these two to figure things out and make it work. It is a fun, quick read with laugh out loud moments. If you like contemporary romance with a side of comedy I suggest giving Train Wreck a try!

 

 

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Och nö! Mein Buch ist verschwunden!

Es ist passiert: Beim Umzug ist ein Buch verschwunden. Das Buch, das ich gerade lese. Das Buch, das nicht mir, sondern der Stadtbibliothek gehört. Sofort stellt sich ein Warum-ich-Gefühl ein, das mir in dieser Wucht nur aus der Pubertät bekannt ist. Die Hilflosigkeit, wenn ein nicht beendetes Buch plötzlich verschwindet, ist atemberaubend. Vor lauter Verzweiflung schaute ich in Schubladen, unter dem Bett und auch, mit leichtem Zögern, im Kühlschrank nach.


Den Helfern und sich selbst will man keine Schuld zugestehen; es kann nur das Buch selbst gewesen sein, dass die Gelegenheit ohne Skrupel nutzte, um sich aus dem Staub zu machen.


Ohne Frage werde ich solange alles auf den Kopf stellen, bis es wieder auftaucht. Kein Zweifel, dass bis dahin nicht viel mit mir wird anzufangen sein. Oh Mann, da habe ich endlich nach Monaten den letzten Band der MaddAddams-Trilogie abgreifen können und jetzt löst der sich einfach so in Luft auf! Mittendrin!

Life Sucks - Gabriel Soria,Gabe Soria,Jessica Abel,Warren Pleece

I liked the storyline but was bothered by the use of gay and Hispanic slurs. I think my favorite character, actually, was Merle the biker vampire. I just liked his straightforward, no BS personality, wished he had had a bigger role in the story. A solid 3 star fun read with some great comedic moments.

Why Your Life Sucks And What You Can Do About It
Why Your Life Sucks And What You Can Do About It - Alan Cohen Just by reading the title of this book it is apparent that Allen Cohen adds a good dash of humor onto the pages of, “Why Your Life Sucks: and what you can do about it.” Indeed, I would say that Alan writes with the same entertaining and lively style as Andrew Matthews who wrote such wonderful books as, “How to be Happy” and “Follow Your Heart.”

There are a great number of self-help books on the market and it is very refreshing to find authors who maintain their sense of humor while writing. Certainly, this is not to say that this book belongs in the “humor” section of the bookstore, it is merely a reminder that we often take life too seriously, especially when we are in the path of self-discovery.

There are ten main reasons that the author suggests for our life “sucking” and these are:

We give away our power
We expect our life to suck
We get fooled by appearances
We waste our energy on things that suck
We keep trying to prove ourselves
We say yes when we mean no
We think we have to do it all…
We try to fix other people
We starve our soul
We forgot to enjoy the ride

Each one of these aspects gets a good dose of personal examination by the author as well as some anecdotal stories and most importantly, a means by which we can examine and eliminate these obstacles. Of course, this still requires effort and a high degree of introspection on our part; however, by using the concepts in this book as a guide posts the journey to a better life is that much easier.

This book is a joy to read and it certainly presents the information in a manner that is poignant and not accusatory. Don’t let Allen’s sense of humor fool you, this book is still overflowing with wisdom and I believe that anyone can benefit from the information.
