I Wore My Blackest Hair by Carlina Duan

 

I honestly don't really understand a lot of poetry and I was hoping this book would be different, because I really do like poetry and want to "get it" better, if that makes sense.

There was pain and beauty in some of the poems, but could not get the meaning behind most of them. Maybe I'm not meant to? Poetry is very personal to the writer. If I related more to Carlina's life, would I understand them better? The writing style was different from how I see a lot of poems, very interesting, but might have been one of the factors in making it hard for me to understand.

Despite not getting most of the poems, I still really enjoyed reading this book. I like that it challenged my brain and made me think.

**Disclaimer, I won an ebook copy through a Goodreads giveaway.**

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-11-04 23:52
Let's Go Play At The Adams' by Mendal W. Johnson
Let's Go Play At The Adams' - Mendal W. Johnson

*Spoiler warning, just in case, but I don't think it really should count as a spoiler*

Trigger Warning: Rape & Torture

 

 

Part of me does not want to post this, but this book effected me so much, I just have to post this. I heard about this book a couple days ago and saw how expensive it was, so naturally I was curious. They say curiosity kills the cat, which that saying makes more sense now. I'm not dead of course, but I felt a little broken after reading this. This book is out of print, so I had to do some digging, because I was not going to pay over $100 for it. Someone let me read their PDF file.

 

Please note, I do not support the taking/stealing of books. I should not have read the PDF file. I do not actually have copies of this PDF on my person, so please don't ask.

 

Here is my review:

 

 

What did I just read... what did I read? I'm shaking, sad, angry, furious, crying my eyes out.

How do you rate a book like this? I will say that I did not "enjoy" it. It wasn't a "good" story. It was engrossing, and I couldn't stop reading it. It was like that saying about not being able to look away from a train wreck or some other tragedy. (I don't even know what I'm saying.) I'm really mad.

The writing style wasn't that great. It felt really choppy. There was a lot of stuff that felt really unnecessary. The ending is what brought on the uncontrollable shaking and anger. (Not that the whole thing isn't anger inducing) I can't even say why without spoiling, but I have a feeling most people go into the story knowing it will not end well.

I think the book broke me. I can't imagine kids being that way, and why one of them wouldn't just tell a grown up, even the "Picker" that was camping out near their home. In this book, the Pickers are men who are lower class and do work for other people, at least is how I gathered it. At least one of them didn't want to go through with it, but since it was "a game" they had to go through with it. That makes me so upset. They were all old enough to know better. Sure some of them might truly be psychotic, but it just doesn't make sense.

Also the cops are so.... phew, calm down... (I'm getting angry again) Adults just don't give kids enough credit and I think somehow, someway, they should have realized something fishy was going on with the kids.

I don't know what else to say.

 

*The only reason I gave it a 3 star is because I can not deny the fact that I was completely engrossed in the book, as horrible as the content was.

 

*Would I read it again: Big HECK no, with a major but... as a book reviewer/blogger and Booktuber, I might allow myself the agony of reading it again if I had a physical copy (that I found for a "normal" price and not $100 and we know how unlikely it is to find a copy) The only reason I *might* read again, is to let you know if the formatting issues I had, the choppiness was down to the fact I read it as a PDF or if those issues were in the print copy.

 

*It has been days since I read and reviewed this and I still feel uncomfortable that I gave it a 3 star, because 3 stars for me usually means I liked a book, but just not enough to be a favorite or a book that I loved (which is what I think about 4 and 5 star reads.)

 

Like I said, I did not like this book, but it did entertain me (not even in a good way, if that makes sense) and it was engrossing, so 3 stars it is.

Foot Solutions Oakville – Avoid walking Barefoot on the Beach

When you are suffering from foot discomfort and pain that persists for weeks, you’d better have it checked at Medical Foot Solutions to find the source of the problem. In most instances, when the pain is ignored, the foot condition is aggravated to necessitate more advanced treatment therapy. A team of professionals at foot solutions Oakville offers treatment for different foot conditions like flat feet, corns and calluses, heel pain and crooked toes.

During summer, plenty of families go to beaches. They walk barefoot to feel the sand. Unknowingly, they sustain injuries like cuts and punctures that may eventually develop into nasty infections. If there are puncture wounds, it is important to seek the services of the doctor at foot solutions Oakville for proper treatment. Do not ignore the wound because there might be some unsterile foreign objects embedded inside the foot.

A puncture wound has to be cleaned properly and monitored during the healing process. Complications like tissue and bone infections as well as damage to the tendons and muscles must be avoided. The doctor at foot solutions Oakville will order tetanus shot because puncture wounds can led to infections and illnesses. While cases of tetanus have become quite rare, it remains a serious threat to persons who have not been up-to-date with their vaccinations. Tetanus is a serious disease that can threaten your life.

It is important for people to wear beach shoes or flip flops in the beach, swimming pools and locker rooms to prevent the entry of bacteria and viruses that cause athlete’s foot, plantar warts and other foot conditions. Plantar warts are caused by HPV virus that enters the foot through tiny breaks and cuts. While plantar warts are not a serious concern, you have to see the foot doctor when the wart persists and multiples and interfere with physical activities.

The earlier the source of foot conditions is identified, the easier it is for the foot doctor to prescribe the necessary treatment. To avoid complications, it is important to check the feet for any suspicious punctures including signs of sunburn that develop on the feet. If you are suffering from diabetes, never go barefoot.
