The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict -book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

54221749In December 1926, Agatha Christie goes missing. Investigators find her empty car on the edge of a deep, gloomy pond, the only clues some tire tracks nearby and a fur coat left in the car—strange for a frigid night. Her husband and daughter have no knowledge of her whereabouts, and England unleashes an unprecedented manhunt to find the up-and-coming mystery author. Eleven days later, she reappears, just as mysteriously as she disappeared, claiming amnesia and providing no explanations for her time away.

The puzzle of those missing eleven days has persisted. With her trademark exploration into the shadows of history, acclaimed author Marie Benedict brings us into the world of Agatha Christie, imagining why such a brilliant woman would find herself at the center of such a murky story.

I will start first by saying that I love Agatha Christie ,her books are so dear to me(it was a big part of my childhood). So after seeing this title and reading this synopsis I knew this was something I would enjoy…and I truly did. This book highlighted interesting parts about Agatha’s life I didn’t know and the struggles of “perfect wives” that women were supposed to be. The mystery part was very well developed in my opinion,and the switching chapters from “now” to “then” was an intriguing part of the story. It’s told from multiple points of view ( Agatha’s and her Husband), and it did give the book an extra mystery element. Overall I really enjoyed it – 4 stars 🌟

The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 3,8/5

Smexy Times?– Non or very limited

OVERALL – 4/5 STARS

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

——————–
But I knew it didn’t matter.
Because I was no longer Agatha Miller. I was Agatha Christie.
——————–
Wasn’t that the destiny of all us girls? To be swept away by a man and then swept into the tidal pull of our Fate?
——————–
“Well, then, we just might make quite the writer out of you yet, Mrs. Christie.”

Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell -book review(Spoiler free)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash50542147Owen Pick’s life is falling apart.

In his thirties, a virgin, and living in his aunt’s spare bedroom, he has just been suspended from his job as a geography teacher after accusations of sexual misconduct, which he strongly denies. Searching for professional advice online, he is inadvertently sucked into the dark world of incel—involuntary celibate—forums, where he meets the charismatic, mysterious, and sinister Bryn.

Across the street from Owen lives the Fours family, headed by mom Cate, a physiotherapist, and dad Roan, a child psychologist. But the Fours family have a bad feeling about their neighbor Owen. He’s a bit creepy and their teenaged daughter swears he followed her home from the train station one night.

Meanwhile, young Saffyre Maddox spent three years as a patient of Roan Fours. Feeling abandoned when their therapy ends, she searches for other ways to maintain her connection with him, following him in the shadows and learning more than she wanted to know about Roan and his family. Then, on Valentine’s night, Saffyre Maddox disappears—and the last person to see her alive is Owen Pick.

With evocative, vivid, and unputdownable prose and plenty of disturbing twists and turns, Jewell’s latest thriller is another “haunting, atmospheric, stay-up-way-too-late read” (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author)Owen Pick’s life is falling apart.

New Year,New Books!-ebook haul

Hello My Darlings!And Welcome if you are new here,I’m Anna and I read a lot of books. So today we are talking about  THE BOOKS I got. I have too many books… unread books,and I still get more. Who is with me on this?!Most of those are cover buys…because I’m a sucker for a good cover. So let’s dive into it.

The Vine Witch(The Vine Witch #1)by Luanne G. Smith 

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

46015350. sy475 For centuries, the vineyards at Château Renard have depended on the talent of their vine witches, whose spells help create the world-renowned wine of the Chanceaux Valley. Then the skill of divining harvests fell into ruin when sorcière Elena Boureanu was blindsided by a curse. Now, after breaking the spell that confined her to the shallows of a marshland and weakened her magic, Elena is struggling to return to her former life. And the vineyard she was destined to inherit is now in the possession of a handsome stranger.

Vigneron Jean-Paul Martel naively favors science over superstition, and he certainly doesn’t endorse the locals’ belief in witches. But Elena knows a hex when she sees one, and the vineyard is covered in them. To stay on and help the vines recover, she’ll have to hide her true identity, along with her plans for revenge against whoever stole seven winters of her life. And she won’t rest until she can defy the evil powers that are still a threat to herself, Jean-Paul, and the ancient vine-witch legacy in the rolling hills of the Chanceaux Valley.

40604799Life used to be great for Rose: full of friends, a loving mom, and a growing fashion blog.

But when her mother dies in a car crash, Rose is sent away to live with a strange grandmother she hardly knows and forced to attend a new school where mean girls ridicule her at every turn.

The one place Rose finds refuge is in her grandmother’s Tudor-style greenhouse. But one night, she sees a strange light glowing from within it. She climbs a ladder to investigate . . . and finds herself transported back four hundred years to Hatfield Palace, where she becomes servant and confidante of the banished princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Henry VIII. Rose soon discovers something else surprising—a locket with two mysterious images inside it, both of them clues to her own past.

Could her grandmother’s greenhouse portal offer answers to the mysteries of her family . . . and their secrets? And how will she ever unravel them all?

Vicious(Villains #1)by V.E. Schwab

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

18180495Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

Lore by Alexandra Bracken

53375824

Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.
Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world in the wake of her family’s sadistic murder by a rival line, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man–now a god–responsible for their deaths.

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek out her help: Castor, a childhood friend of Lore believed long dead, and a gravely wounded Athena, among the last of the original gods.

Silver Color A-Z 26 Letters Initial  Rings

Price – 0.55 euro($0.64)

I have seen here and there those initial rings, and when I saw something similar on Aliexpress…I WAS SOOO HAPPY! And the price …UNDER 1 EURO! So of course I got myself one. I’m very glad I got it. The quality is good for the price, the shipping was okay.

 Sabrina Stickers 10 pcs

Price – 0.81 euro($0.94 )

Shipping to Latvia(EU) -around a month 

My newest obsession is Sabrina. Have you seen it? If not, you need to watch it. So I got some Sabrina stickers. You can’t decide what kind of stickers you get , but for the price that’s okay.

First Beauty haul of the year(NEW SKINCARE)

Hello, My Darlings! It’s New year and I got some new stuff. Some of those products I have already tried and some not yet. Let’s dive into the goodies.

Disclaimer – I have oily acne-prone skin, so what works for me, can not work for you.

1.NEUTROGENA Skin Detox 2-in-1 Clay Wash Mask

I’m pretty happy with this one! As a daily wash, it has a nice cooling effect, easy to clean the face. As a face mask, this one is very interesting. It doesn’t dry on the face, the cooling effect doesn’t stop until you take it off, and even after that you still feel the tingling. Overall a nice product. 

2.Garnier Pure Active Charcoal Peel-Off Mask 50ml

Ehhh…..I have mixed feelings about this one. Yes, I have tried it just once, so maybe my opinion will change. The problem is- it doesn’t peel off properly. If you didn’t put a generous amount on the area, it a pain to take off…But it does clean out the pores on the nose amazingly.

3.RdeL young profi palette eyeshadow 

Very shiny, easy to swatch, has a light perfume scent. This was a gift, so still haven’t played with it really.

4.eco laboratorie argana hair oil

This works more like a hair mask than anything. Nice scent, lots of product, still have to try.

5.SVR Sebiaclear Gel Moussant 200ml

Nice face wash, nothing special. Light scent, gentle wash, helps with acne. It doesn’t contain alcohol or parabens. Suitable for sensitive skin.

6.Garnier Eye Makeup Remover 2 in 1 

I know I know, everyone has tried it…but this my first eye makeup remover from Garnier. It has no scent, not extra greasy(and that’s good). Will see how I like it.

Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn -book review(and a little RANT)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

23480844. sy475 Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward, fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time- the kind Mercedes never had herself.

Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy- so far. Her absentee mother isn’t home nearly enough to know about Mercedes’ extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won’t even say the word “sex” until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn’t bank on Angela’s boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn- or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.

When Mercedes’ perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her reputation and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process. Funny, smart, and true-to-life, FIRSTS is a one-of-a-kind young adult novel about growing up.

The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 5/5

Main Hero– 2/5

Smexy Times?– Yes ,a lot

OVERALL – 4/5 STARS

Trigger warning -sexual abuse, miscarriage 

This is not suitable for readers under 16 years old

4 stars

So basically it’s a story about a girl who is dealing with her trauma, it’s raw and not pretty. She thinks it’s the right thing to do, but in reality, it’s not. The writing was good, the setting was good too. I enjoyed this book, but my problem…is the ending.  The book didn’t keep everyone accountable for the mistakes they made, there was no therapist for Mercedes to deal with her trauma in a healthy way. Just lots of slut-shame. That’s my only complaint.

Rant(kind of)

This is not really about this book, but more about sex in Ya(young adult) books overall. In the last few years, I have seen a lot of sex in Ya, much more than there was before. Sometimes it’s appropriate(to the story), sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it opens up good discussions, and sometimes it’s not. I’m all about sexual liberation, there is nothing wrong about talking sex or having sex if you are a consenting adult. But when we are talking about actual children(yes, in my mind everyone under the age of 18 is a child), how far is too far? How can we open up a discussion, without promoting unhealthy behaviors. Would love to know your opinion about it.

The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher- book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

49875586Have you ever been wrong about someone?

Juno was wrong about Winnie Crouch.

Before moving in with the Crouch family, Juno thought Winnie and her husband, Nigel, had the perfect marriage, the perfect son—the perfect life. Only now that she’s living in their beautiful house, she sees the cracks in the crumbling facade are too deep to ignore.

Still, she isn’t one to judge. After her grim diagnosis, the retired therapist simply wants a place to live out the rest of her days in peace. But that peace is shattered the day Juno overhears a chilling conversation between Winnie and Nigel…

She shouldn’t get involved.

She really shouldn’t.

But this could be her chance to make a few things right.

Because if you thought Juno didn’t have a secret of her own, then you were wrong about her, too.

My first favorite of the year. This was unexpected, lots of twists and turns…but at the same time not creepy. The ending shocked me,and that’s pretty hard to do. Great book,would recommend if you want something more ‘real’in your thriller.

I got “Oriflame “Love Nature” with Organic Tea Tree and Lime” line for Christmas

Hello, My Darlings! So for Christmas, my dear friend Alina got me this Oriflame “Love Nature” set. She knows I love the gel wash and the scrub(I have already talked about some products I have already tried here) that’s why Alina got me the whole line as a gift.

I’m so excited, I have already tried most of the products(for like 2 weeks)

Here are my thoughts!

Purifying Gel Wash with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product :

Formulated without parabens and featuring organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, this light-foaming floral-citrus scented gel wash works to instantly purify the skin while removing make-up, impurities, excess sebum, and oil.
Blemish-prone skin? Never fear, it also contains salicylic acid to help target blemishes. It’s also dermatologically-tested and non-comedogenic.
And on top of doing your skin a favor, you’ll be helping Mother Nature because its formulation is silicone-free and biodegradable!

My thoughts :

One of my favorite face wash EVER. I love how good it cleans my face , it gives a light cooling effect I totally adore. My oily skin loves it!

Mattifying Face Lotion with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product:

Created using organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, it’s a match made in heaven for oily skin. Designed for day and night use, it helps to deliver lightweight hydration and works to leave skin perfectly mattified, purified, and shine-free, while controlling excess sebum and oil. It even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

And, as you’d expect, it’s dermatologically-tested, non-comedogenic, paraben-free and finished with a beautifully uplifting floral-citrus scent.

My thoughts :

The first time using this face cream I didn’t like it , it felt too oily at that moment. But after a week of using it…I really like it. For now, my skin likes it, no new acne and that’s amazing. My boyfriend did try it too and he liked it , so it’s BF approved.

Purifying 2-in-1 Mask & Scrub with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product:

Designed as a convenient multi-purpose mask and scrub, it’s infused with all the goodness of organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, making it the go-to solution for a deep and meaningful cleanse. But it won’t stop there… It also works to exfoliate your skin, helps to minimize the appearance of pores, and even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

More good news is, it’s alcohol and paraben-free and dermatologically tested – not to mention kind to the planet because the formulation uses only natural-origin exfoliating particles and is biodegradable and silicone-free!

My thoughts :

I like this one, it’s pretty good for everyday use. Very gentle scrub, but still gets the job done. The mask gives this cooling feeling (just like the gel), which helps with acne.

Purifying Face Oil with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product :

Infused with lush organic antibacterial Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, together with salicylic acid, Love Nature Tea Tree & Lime Purifying Oil targets blemishes by helping to purify and soothe the affected area while working to tone and tighten pores.

Fresh on application, with a wonderfully light after-feel and an uplifting floral-citrus scent, the formulation is also paraben-free and dermatologically tested.

My thoughts :

This was a miss, not my favorite product. Didn’t work for me.More about why and how you can read here (Oriflame LOVE NATURE Purifying Face Oil with Organic Tea Tree & Lime- First Impression)

Purifying Toner with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product : 

Featuring organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, it’s designed to remove those last traces of make-up and impurities and leave skin perfectly cleansed, toned and purified. It’ll also work to minimise the appearance of pores and even contains salicylic acid to help control blemish-prone skin.

You’ll also be pleased to hear it’s dermatologically-tested and non-comedogenic. And – as a parting kiss from Mother Nature – it’ll leave your skin with a delicate floral citrus scent. That’s purifying bliss in a bottle!

My thoughts :

This is a hit and miss for me. I like it, but it does leave my skin sticky. Doesn’t break me out, the scent is light. One of the main ingredients is Alcohol, so if you are sensitive to it, this is not for you.

Fables & Other Lies by Claire Contreras -book review(spoiler free)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

55818653. sy475 Do you believe in curses?

I never did.

Not until that fated night, six years ago, when I sat in The Devil’s Chair and made a wish.

Not until it came true.

Not until I met River Caliban himself, heir to a fortune of curses. My fated sworn enemy.

I knew I should have stayed away from him. I should have run the other way when he called out my name, when he flashed that sinful smile of his, but instead, I walked toward him, leaving the light behind. Instead, I go against all reason, against all warning, and attended the gala of the year at his dark, allegedly haunted home at the top of the hill.

The moment I step foot inside I know I’m in trouble, but there’s something about River that magnetizes me, reels me in, and when he asks for the impossible, I find it impossible to turn him away.

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

This was the last book I read last year,and I can say….it was pretty good. Very quotable,like the most quotable book I have ever read. It’s such a beautiful dark story,the atmosphere was amazing. As with most gothic stories, there was a lot of mystery and uncertainty that wasn’t really explained,and I’m okay with it. Overall 4 stars ,I would give it higher but I didn’t like the ending… Would recommend for you to check it out.

4 stars

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

“I’m here for a funeral. Or do you suppose I should wear a celebratory color to honor my own father’s death?”


“The Devil is laughing tonight, but he laughs alone,”
—————————————————————-
“I thought good witches didn’t feel fear. I thought good witches walked in the light, where there was nothing to fear”
—————————————————————-
Life doesn’t care about fairness. We live, we suffer, we die.”
—————————————————————-
“According to fake Ms. Cleo, I’m going to die soon and my best friend is going to get kidnapped by the Devil.”
“Oh. Typical Tuesday on the island, then?”
—————————————————————–
I didn’t come for the festivities.” His smile was slow and purposeful, like a wolf ready to pounce on prey.
You came here for me,” I said.
“Beauty and brains. We have a winner.”
——————————————————————
“Distance is an illusion.”
“Much like time.”
——————————————————————
If I’d been a man, my father would have been proud. But I wasn’t a man. I was just a woman with a problem between her legs
——————————————————————
“Isn’t that what life is? A series of impossibilities.”
——————————————————————
“Isn’t that all romance is? Deceit wrapped up in a pretty package.”
——————————————————————

Where better to have someone with questionable morals exist than a place where everyone is looking for something to give them purpose, without realizing their purpose was planted inside of them all along?

Avon “Luck” for Her Eau de Parfum-review

ABOUT THE PRODUCT :

Sparkling citrus and luscious berries blended with creamy white florals and warm sandalwood.

  • Top: Pink Pepper
  • Heart: Nutmeg
  • Base: Sandalwood Essence

My thoughts :

I got this perfume for myself as a Christmas gift. The price was 4.99 euro for 30ml, so very affordable.

Packaging

I got the 30 ml version, so the packaging is average. It’s a solid glass bottle(a little bit heavy and that’s amazing). The 50 ml bottle is MUCH cuter(it has a bow on it), but the cardboard box of this one is such good quality(very sturdy), I’m impressed.

Quality and Scent

The quality of the perfume is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It stays on my skin a whole day, like around 8h. But on my clothes, it stays even longer, like 24h. I’m so happy with it. The scent is great too, it’s sweet but not overbearing. I love Sandalwood and you can really smell in this perfume.
