What would you be willing to risk for a lifetime of fortune?

Emmett Atwater isn’t just leaving Detroit; he’s leaving Earth. Why the Babel Corporation recruited him is a mystery, but the number of zeroes on their contract has him boarding their lightship and hoping to return to Earth with enough money to take care of his family.

Forever.

Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home. Now each recruit must earn the right to travel down to the planet of Eden—a planet that Babel has kept hidden—where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has quietly become the most valuable material in the universe.

But Babel’s ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won’t forever compromise what it means to be human.

The story– 3/5

Setting of the book– 4/5

Smexy Times?– Not really

OVERALL – 3,5/5 STARS

Finally, I read this one! This is the first book in a trilogy, and to be honest..it’s bland if you don’t start reading the second book right after the first one. Like it does lay a good foundation of the story, but it’s not a 10 book series I wanted a little bit more, more “meat”.The writing was good(very straightforward), easy to understand. Overall I’m excited to read the second book and see where the story goes.

Hello, My Darlings! How are you? It’s Blogtober day 10 and we are talking favorites(beauty, books, and Music), September favorites to be exact. Last month was full of trips, memories, and my birthday(post about it you can read here). My favorites are all over the place, let’s dive into it!

Micellar Shampoo 5 Herbs Power Chistaya Liniya

EUROSHOP-24.eu - Чистая линия Мягкий Мицеллярный Шампунь Экспертный уход  5в1, 250 мл

Super affordable shampoo that works. For 400 ml I paid 2.34 euro. And this smells amazing! Like sooo good, and my hair looks amazing after using it.Gentle shampoo(like super gentle), my hair color doesn’t fade after using and that’s always good. Would definitely recommend it.

A Dance with the Fae Prince by Elise Kova(Book Review)-Blogtober day 9

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
55688537. sx318

She knew her hand in marriage would be sold. She had no idea a fae prince was the buyer.

Katria swore she’d never fall in love. She’s seen what “love” means through the cruelty of her family. So when she’s married off to the mysterious Lord Fenwood for a handsome price, all Katria wants is a better life than the one she’s leaving. Feelings are off the table.

But her new husband makes not falling in love difficult.

As their attraction begins to grow, so too do the oddities within her new life: strange rules, screams in the night, and attacks by fae that Katria never thought were real. When she witnesses a ritual not meant for human eyes, Katria finds herself spirited away to the land of Midscape.

Surviving the fae wilds as a human is hard enough. Katria must survive as a human who accidently pilfered the magic of ancient kings – magic a bloodthirsty king is ready to kill her for in order to keep his stolen throne – and her new husband is the rightful heir in hiding.

The power to save the fae is in her hands. But who will save her from a love she vowed never to feel?

OVERALL – 3,5/5 STARS

This is the second book in the Married to Magic series.You can read each book on it’s own,loved the first book so I had high hopes…but,I’m disappointed…The first one was waaaay better. So the story was okay, but the romance between our couple was non-existing…like I didn’t feel it at all. Is it worth reading? Yes! Was it the best ook ever and I would recommend it for everyone I see(like the first book)? No. Overall it was okay.

3 Ways to Edit Your Photos for Newbies-Blogtober day 8

Hello, My Darlings! It’s day 8 of Blogtober and we are talking Photo editing. Have you ever struggled with photo editing? Or you don’t know anything about it? Here are some easy-to-use apps and programs. Hope you find it helpful

Use Presets for Lightroom

This is my new obsesion ,so easy to use and your photos always look AMAZING.So what’s a preset?It’s a pre-made lightroom app settings for your photos. Very easy to put in your app or on computer. You can buy really cheap presets on Etsy (I got mine under 1 euro)or you can find some free ones on the internet.

Free Program PhotoScape

This is still my go-to for photo editing! It’s free, easy to use, and has lots of good settings to play with. Fun fact -this was my first program where I made my blog banner and signature card. You can download it here free.

Snow or Facetune

I use Snow for my bookstagram, it has so many fun filters and settings. You can even edit short videos with it. It’s free and easy to use. Totally recommend. Facetune is pretty similar, but not as fun. So try both of those to find the perfect fit.

The Marriage by K.L. Slater book review-Blogtober day 7

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.

Ten years ago my darling son Jesse was murdered and our perfect family was destroyed. My strong, handsome boy, so full of life, became a memory, a photo I carried with me everywhere.

But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.

The man who killed my son.

My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?

They don’t really know me at all…

Setting of the book– 2/5

Smexy Times?– not graphic

OVERALL – 3/5 STARS

Another disappointing “thriller”, but a great family drama. Expected the whole time some twists and turns, but no…I don’t know what this new marketing trend is, to advertise family dramas as psychological thrillers, but it’s getting annoying. So the book really was a beautiful family story of forgiveness and second chances. It was good, the writing was enjoyable, the multiple POVs sometimes felt a little bit forced but that’s not critical. Overall it was okay, would reccomend it.

The Girls by Emma Cline(review)-Blogtober day 3

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence, and to that moment in a girl’s life when everything can go horribly wrong.

Trigger warning: sexual abuse,violence

This was like nothing I expected. So I decided to get it thanks to my boyfriend(he gave me a gift card for my name day), I have seen this one around the book side of the internet like two years ago, so seeing it in Latvian was trilling. My thoughts-It was very prose heavy. The story was interesting, engaging…sometimes too graphic(like VERY graphic). The cult part of this story heavily reminded The Manson family cult, I could easily see the similarities. As a true crime fan, it was interesting. While reading it, I was very confused why some called this a “coming of age story” because this was screaming more like “neglecting parents of a teen who is seeking love in all the wrong places”. Overall it was good, but I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone under 16.
