Book review: MY ALIEN SELF My Journey Back To Me – by Amanda Green

my alien selfI had been itching to read this book for such a long time and when life finally allowed me the time to do so I wasn’t disappointed with what I found!

Amanda has certainly led a full and varied life and there were many parts of this memoir which I could resonate with, drawing parallels with my own life experiences. There were other instances which simply intrigued and fascinated me and frankly left me in awe.

The underlying purpose of this memoir is to raise awareness of Borderline Personality Disorder, what it means, how it affects sufferers’ lives (and those around them), and what treatments are available. It follows Amanda’s very own journey from the first indications that something wasn’t quite right, to the realisation that actually there is a name for this disorder, and then her treatment and care plan following her route to recovery and finding her true self. Like any memoir, it has some very dark moments, but there are also some very positive and uplifting moments, Continue reading

Book review: MY PRISON WITHOUT BARS by Taylor Fulks

MY PRISON WITHOUT BARS: The Journey of a Damaged Woman to Someplace Normal is a book which came to my notice on Twitter some months ago. I was very much intrigued and soon found myself at the author Taylor Evan Fulksmpwbwebsite and blog. Take a peek!

First of all, I should say that Taylor has very deservedly been awarded over 100 x 5 star reviews at Amazon.com by her readers.

This is Taylor’s debut novel and it is her true life story. I should perhaps mention that if you are not broad minded, if you shock and take offence easily, if you are squeamish, Continue reading

Book review: SHE BELONGS TO ME by Carmen DeSousa

What a great read! I love the two leading characters, Jaynee and Jordan. Apart from the gunshot scene, the first half of the book mainly focuses on their developing relationship. It is very touching and watching Jordan fall deeply in love with Jaynee (whilst chasing and wooing her) is quite beautiful, and very believable She Belongs to Metoo.

The second half of the book picks up pace and becomes very intriguing with the whole ‘whodunnit?’ theme. I found myself trying to guess who it could be. When it became clear I’d suspected the wrong guy all along, I spent an entire afternoon reading because I simply had to know who it was! It’s well written, very romantic, mysterious and captivating.

If you like romance and suspense then SHE BELONGS TO ME is highly recommended!
