Celebrating Kanta Bosniak's latest poem book from her Love Collection Twin Flames
I was privileged enough to receive Twin Flames: More Love Poems, Awakened Love: More Love Poems, Love Poems, and The Love is Everywhere Coloring Book.
I have previously reviewed one of Kanta’s self help books and not only enjoyed what she wrote, but loved the illustrations and the accompanying coloring book of the illustrations.
The same applies to this set.
Growing up, I loved to write poetry and I am sure if you ask hubby, he has plenty of love poems I wrote for him, but I haven’t written in ages. It was nice to pick up these three books and read the poems within. It has been a long time since I read poetry, especially love poems.
They are easy reads for when you have just a few moments here and there.
They are enjoyable and of course, the free spirited illustrations that I love so much are within the books and of course the coloring books (because what adult doesn’t enjoy relaxing by coloring every once in awhile. We’re all a kid at heart, right?)
I am glad to have these to hold on to and to help remind me of the love I have within me.
Our Book ReviewWhen I read the book description I just knew that this would be a book I would enjoy to read due to the unusual story line. I am pleased to say the book exceeded my expectations and I was gripped from page one.Two girls, Alex and Sandra, from the opposite end of the social spectrum are involved in a tragic accident on a school trip, one girl is left brain damaged the other is left with a shattered and broken body. Do the surgeons leave both girls to die or do they transplant the healthy brain from one girl into the healthy body of the other. This is where the numerous 'what if' questions started as I asked myself throughout the book how I would feel, who would this patient now be, who would now be her parents, how this would affect family and friends and that's even before the whole ethics of the issue.An absolutely fabulous read from such a talented author as he brings the whole story to you through the eyes of Alex as she lay both in her coma as well as her recovery efforts. You could feel Alex's sheer panic and terror as she is aware of all the goings on around her, feeling like she doesn't exist as everyone else makes decisions on her behalf. The feel of disgust being inside a body that she cannot bear to be in, her life that she took for granted will never be the same again.As you read the book it becomes very clear that a lot of research has been done by the author for a story that will inevitably bring questions, discussions and debates to anyone who reads it as well as opening it up to those around them. I do have to include that I would absolutely love to take the virtual therapy that Alex undertook, to escape from the world into another place, how wonderful that would be.A highly recommended thought provoking read as you feel as you are there besides Alex as she struggles to come to terms with all that she has lost and what she now has become. I cannot wait to read the next book to see how the author will carry the story on for Alex and all those affected by the tragedy.
Our Book ReviewI enjoyed the whole aspect of the story, for me it reminded me of a grown up version of a fairy tale with a prince, a princess, a witch along with the myths and legends. I still think fondly back to the story now, long after finishing it. Fantasy isn't my normal type of genre and this may be the reason why I felt that I had to concentrate while reading the story, keeping track of who was who and the events occurring, going backwards a number of times.The author has done a tremendous job with the writing and planning of this story, the characters are so likable and the descriptive text gives you the full insight you need.The story follows a clever and deceptive witch, trapped in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania for centuries due to greed and power struggles of others, she cursed two noble families who she believes robbed her of her humanity, one imprisoned to their homeland of Wallachia and the other exiled from it forever, both families were then made immortal apart from their last born, a prince and a princess.The prince and princess are the key to release both their families from the curse and to help the witch on her mission but to do so and become immortal themselves they must enter the past to the dreaded battle on Easter Sunday that killed so many or the other option given is to marry which will remove the curse but they will stay mortal. Neither want to marry, both are young and want to be independent and live their own lives but know what is at stake for their families.The story follows their many adventures as they fight against a powerful prince and his men, their grandfather's centuries old battles for power, injustices and help the clan of people they meet along the way who were entrusted with a highly powerful legendary lost crown, golden cup and scepter and the stones that is believed to have the power of birth, life and death, wanted by the prince who will do anything to obtain them.A highly imaginative story from the author that has plenty of good twists to the story as you learn the secrets to their past.
