Book Review
Diary Of An Oxygen Thief (The Oxygen Thief Diaries #1) - Anonymous

Diary Of An Oxygen Thief by Anonymous was very easy to become interested. Even the first sentence got you hooked. This book is written as if it is an actual diary entry, I’m almost certain it was at one point. Even the strange cover, and the fact it is an unknown writer makes it so mysterious and unpredictable. I had very high hopes towards the beginning and I am glad to explain how satisfied I am!

 

Diary Of An Oxygen Thief  is about an alcoholic who used to enjoy emotionally abusing women. His philosophy through the whole book is “hurt people hurt people.” So, he would take the pain he felt from the booze, and passed it on to the women that fell in love with him. He felt that he could experience joy, from watching people close to him feel pain, especially if he is the cause for it. He continues to tell the readers all the instances of the girls he has broken. Example after example, He finally sobers up by frequently attending AA meetings, and staying away from women, both for five and a half years. He eventually meets his newest love, Aisling. Soon, she gives the narrator “a taste of his own medicine,” mentally abuses him, by breaking his heart. All during this, the narrator is in a bad state of mind, and uncomfortable living place, and a critical work position.

 

The main character, the author of the book starts out as a very unlikeable man. As I was first reading, the actions he took with women and alcohol made me judgmental and frustrated. I felt that if I were to meet him in person, I would not be his biggest fan, and judge him based on his past actions. However, as I kept reading, and realized what he did to stop his ways, he seemed like an overall better developed person and character. As I kept reading and understanding, I started to root for the villain all the way through! The way he explained his terrible actions in the beginning later made sense, because it led to the point of Aisling’s hypocrisy, and the author’s want for revenge. The revenge would be the book overall, to get his side of the story published before her. Aisling was described as a very kind, beautiful lady. As introduced, one would think she would be a perfect influence on a recovering alcoholic. I later found her cruel and gloating with superiority. The other characters, all the affected women were not a large part of the story, but all were described in their unique ways, and how they were differently hurt and reactant towards the narrator’s oxygen stealing.

 

The author’s writing is very unique. It has a mixture of deep literature, accompanied by snarky opinions, and at some points, it’s as if the reader and the writer are having a conversation. The author even said that he intended to make the book as if the reader was “invading” his diary privacy. Take this quote from page 53:

 

“I was in a lot of pain, you see. But it had been caused by an abstract blade. What I mean is, the pain was physical, the cause wasn’t. I suppose people would say I was suffering from a broken heart. Or you might say it’s just life.”

 

The deep, emotional part talks about the abstract blade, and physical pain. His opinion isn’t stated, but the reader can infer that he doesn’t know the cause of his hurting, he just knew the pain was there. The conversational text would be the words such as “you see,” and “you might say…”


Overall, I enjoyed Diary Of An Oxygen Thief, and would now consider it one of my favorite books. Personally, it wasn’t a book I couldn’t put down right that second, and blow through it in an hour. Although, it was good enough to read in a couple days, and I was happy with the outcome. It was a very honest and in a weird way, pure story, and I liked that he was in some ways “owning up” to past mistakes. However, I would recommend this book for older kids, probably 14 or 15 and up. It has graphic sexual scenes, and some mature-choice words. Worth it!

 Belle by Anonymous Girls

 

Dear Reader,

Isabelle “Belle” March is a nobody. A nothing. A Peasant. No one even knew who she was until one of the Royals, Adam “Beast” Castle, decided she was hot enough to ignore the hierarchy at our school—a hierarchy I myself set in place. I run this school, and the Upper East Side, too. Here at H.E.A., we stick to a strict social status, something most of Manhattan does, too. So when Beast starts dating Belle? All hell breaks loose.

Royals shouldn’t date Peasants, and you’re about to see why.

Oh, and please don’t buy this thinking you know how this story is going to end. You know nothing. Nobody here at H.E.A. plays by the rules, or follows the books. The only one who knows anything around here is me…

And I’m not telling anyone a thing.

XOXO,

Elsa

Lost Rider by 

 

In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!

Grayson by F.G. Adams

 

Growing up in the small coastal town of Florida, Grayson Blackwood has defied the odds stacked against him. Appearances on the outside can be very deceiving. Coming from a wealthy family with an abusive father that won’t ever change, he’s determined to be a better man. Grayson is fighting for his family, his country, and the only woman he’s ever loved.

Ella Anderson has lived a hard life, growing up with a sick mom and a less than upstanding father. From hand-me-downs to food stamps, life was never easy for her family. But the one thing she could always count on was her family’s love, and for Ella, that was the most precious commodity.

When Ella moves to Lakeview, she meets Grayson in high school. The attraction is immediate for both. Dubbed as ‘just friends’, Grayson and Ella forge an undeniable friendship that leads to a powerful promise.

After high school, Ella and Grayson fall out of touch. A one-in-a-million chance meeting halfway around the globe brings the couple back together in a lifeless desert land, a combat zone where death is always present.

Alpha in his own right, Captain Blackwood leads his special ops team into a war-torn country, determined to take down a terrorist, while Ella struggles with the realization that Grayson has found her again.

Will their love survive time and their harsh separation from long ago? Can Grayson show Ella that they were made for each other?


Bluebirds mate for life. And Grayson’s Bluebird is coming home.

Author’s Note: This is a full-length standalone novel with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads

 

He’s found her at last

Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare

Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he’s the one who can save her. He also knows he’s beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?

Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

 

 

 

Nevada Baylor is faced with the most challenging case of her detective career—a suicide mission to bring in a suspect in a volatile case. Nevada isn’t sure she has the chops. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive.

Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world.

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

 

Perfect for fantasy fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo, the first book in this new duology features a compelling gender fluid main character, impressive worldbuilding, and fast-paced action.

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class―and the nobles who destroyed their home. 

When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand―the Queen’s personal assassins, named after the rings she wears―Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge. 

But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.

The Struggle  by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

A bloody path has been chosen…

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.

The Great War fought by the few is coming…

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.

In the end, the sun will fall…

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost

 

Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave

Tor2Web Proxy: "The Dark Net - How to Stay Anonymous Online Even from the NSA" by Peter Johansen
The Dark Net: How to Stay Anonymous Online – Even from the NSA - Peter Johansen

Tor2Web Proxy: https://zqktlwi4fecvo6ri.onion.to/wiki/Main_Page

 

 

The darkness exists in the human mind not the technology.

Victorian Portugal was full of dark secrets that have had a negative effect on

this society ever since, far more than the internet has.

 

 

There's the "dark web" - i.e. the web you need to use Freenet or Tor or something like access (and those two are just examples, and they form distinct non-interconnected webs). And then there's the "deep web" - this is websites whose content is not indexed by search engines, because you need to register or pay to access the contents, or has Flash front ends, or is otherwise unavailable to a search engine. This is the thing that is likely much larger than the freely available web, and it's usually because there's money to be made by gate-keeping access to it. There's very little illegal, immoral or otherwise dodgy about the deep web; most of it is for-pay services, which are usually easy to clamp down on if they're illegal - just follow the money. 

 

Am I missing something here?

 

 

If you're into Computer Science and the "Dark Web", read on

my though

 

 

I have to say going into his book I really wasn’t sure what to expect, other than a modern version of Beauty and the Beast… maybe. And after the first few chapters I wasn’t sure if I even would like it. It all seemed a bit too angsty and the characters seemed a bit “young”, listening to them, they seemed a little immature. I also wasn’t a huge fan of all the names at first even though it made sense in a way.

That all being said I ended up really enjoying this book and had a hard time putting it down. All the high school drama, angst and hierarchy of the “royals” and “peasants” was really fun to read along. While predicable on some part others things were surprising and kept it fresh.

I liked the characters ….some more than others .Some were what we would expect from the famous counterpart ….others not so much. Which I also really enjoyed and it kept the story fresh and somewhat unique.

I’m looking forward to the next book and Ella’s story a lot after a little preview at the end of the book. But what I really looking forward is Ariel and Snow’s stories, It seemed like there is one there but who knows. But I really hope we get one at least one of them if not both.

Overall. I really enjoyed this book, even if I wasn’t really sure about it in the beginning.

 

I rate it 4 ★

Adam was a force of nature when he was out there on the field. There was something almost animalistic in the way he reared his arm back, calculated the risks, and some how managed to fire off a perfect shot toward the receiver—more often than not, Prescott—every single time. Every time his passes were caught, I waited for him to show some sign of his usual cockiness or even excitement, but he just nodded, slapped his hands together, and did it again. He was so grave, so focused, and it was clear he took his duties as quarterback very seriously.

Whereas Prescott danced. Literally. I’d laughed along with the rest of the crowd as he’d done his thing, but Beast had been too busy talking to his coach as the defensive lineup trailed onto the field to see it. That’s how the whole game had gone.

Beast doing his thing, Prescott doing his, and Ella and the Royals all cheering them along with flips, bounces, and pyramids.

They cheered now, something about the Royals being undefeatable, and the W.W.H. team going home crying, and the crowd went wild when Ella was flipped in the air and caught by Elsa, Anna, and Tianna. Prescott grinned from the bench and blew a kiss at Ella, who beamed, her cheeks red.

Something had changed between them since last night, and they seemed… happy. Prescott no longer seemed like he was in a prison sentence without parole, and even Ella had been smiling and joking with her friends while the boys played.

I looked at Adam. He watched the girls, too. His gaze was narrow on them, almost like he was annoyed at something, but then he shrugged and turned back to me. When he saw me watching, he grinned, lifted a hand, and waved. Smiling, I immediately waved back. He pressed his hand to his heart, then slammed his helmet back over his head.

Snow sighed beside me. “God, can you believe he’s yours?”

“Not really,” I admitted, tugging my slouchy hat lower. “He’s so… so…”

“Beastly.”
