Stolen Book Review!!!

Published July 27, 2017 by Shay Taree

So I just finished a new book that was really good and I wanted to shar it with all of you. 

The name of the book is Stolen by Lucy Christopher and it’s set in Australian Outback. The story is about a girl named Gemma is kidnapped and drugged by a gentleman by the name of Ty. So the story follow Gemma as she is with her capture until she is finally found and what comes after. 

The story is told in the 2nd person point of view written as a letter from Gemma to Ty after the ordeal. This was an interesting way to tell the story and really helped you to get inside the head of character as everything was happening. And especially after the ordeal is over. You understand the confusion that she as and also the hatred she as after everything is done. 

The book moves fairly quickly to be honest and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat while reading it. I kept wondering from beginning to end how Gemma was going to get out and what was going to happen to Ty. 

You also start to feel for Ty as you learn more about his past because even though you want to hate him because of what he did. This is also the same for Gemma since while there she starts to feel the same thing. 

So definitely check out this book of you haven’t already. I’m sure that you will definitely enjoy it!

I Can’t Make This Up By Kevin Hart Book Review!! 

Published June 13, 2017 by Shay Taree

Alright so this is my first book review and hopefully not my last but I decided to review the book I Can’t Make This Up By Kevin Hart. 
Now I’m sure many of you know who Kevin Hart is due to him being not a only a very successful comedian but also a successful actor. When I found out he was writing a book I was so happy about and could wait to read it. 
I couldn’t wait to read for several reasons such as I knew it was going to be inspiring and I also knew that it was going to be funny. Let’s just say that I definitely wasn’t disappointed. 

When the book released I knew I was going to get the e-book versions through iBooks but after looking further I saw there was an audiobook version. Now I don’t usually go for audio books but when I saw that Kevin Hart was narrating his own book I knew I had to get it since laughs were definitely going to be in store. 

From the moment I started listening to it I couldn’t stop laughing and since I was listening to this while at work I had to try my best to stifle my laughter so as not to disturb my coworkers. Plus to also not look like a crazy person laughing at something that both could not see or hear. 

Not the book wasn’t all laughter since it definitely talked about hardships regarding his family, career, and relationships with many of them being things I didn’t know about. 

The book was inspiring and showed me to continue to strive for my dreams and to not let anyone hold me back. The only person standing in my way is me and I have to move myself out of my own way. 

So if your someone that likes to read inspiring books or if you like Kevin Hart then definitely check out his book. You can find it at several local book stores if you want a physical copy but also on e-book stores like iBooks or kindle. If your someone who likes audiobooks then I definitely suggest that version since it was hilarious. 

So thank you Kevin Hart for all the laughs and smiles I had a long the way while listening to your book. Also thank you for sharing your struggles and inspiring myself and others to continue to hustle and strive for our dreams no matter what. 

Oh yeah and feel free to recommend any books you would like me to read and do a review on either here on my blog or on YouTube. So comment that down below if you like.
