Review: “The Lost Child” by Emily Gunnis

A couple of years ago I read the debut novel “The Girl in the Letter” by Emily Gunnis and fell in love with the heart-wrenching story and Emily’s writing. So, when she began talking about her second novel on social media I was thrilled and counting down the days until it’s release. Thanks to NetGalley, I was able to get my hands on an e-book copy of it and I was not disappointed; once again Gunnis crafted a wonderful story that is intriguing and captivating.

Functionally Fictional

By: Manuela Soares

Hello everyone, it’s that time of the week again where one of us posts what we’ve been reading over the last little while. WWW Wednesday is a weekly reading update hosted by Taking on a World of Words. Here’s what I’ve been reading.

The Three Ws are:

  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What are you currently reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

Right now I’m reading several books, first is Cravings by Chrissy Teigen – her twitter makes me laugh so much and when I saw my library had her first cookbook, I checked it out immediately; her personality shines through her writing and it’s fabulous!

The next book I’m working my way through is Phantom Evil by Heather Graham – I randomly came across one of her books a few years ago and really enjoyed it…

Top Ten Tuesday: Gifts for Readers

Functionally Fictional

By: Manuela Soares

Hello readers! Welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday! With the holiday’s rapidly approaching I thought what better time to put together a little gift guide of ten of my favorite bookish things that I’ve either bought for myself, had gifted to me, would love to be gifted, or have gifted to others that have gone over well.


Starting with the most obvious, books are the perfect match for readers! If you know what their favorite genres or favorite books are, you can go to a bookstore and ask an employee what they might recommend, or you can go on Goodreads and check out what books are similar to the ones they like and go from there; you can also check your reader’s Goodreads page (if they have one) and see what’s on their Want to Read list and pick some options. Also, even if you…

Review of “The Good Neighbor” by Cathryn Grant

Sometimes the past just won’t stay buried.

When 14 year old Brittany disappears one night, her parents are devastated, certain she has been taken.

They can’t bear to think about who has done this and what might be happening to their precious girl. 

Even worse, the police seem to see them as suspects, implying that they may have had a part in their own daughter’s disappearance. Only their neighbor, Taylor, is a rock. She organizes search parties, feeds the volunteers, works night and day to help them find Brittany.

But as this affluent California community becomes focused on the hunt for the missing girl, it slowly becomes clear that her disappearance is linked to terrible secrets from the past.

Secrets that must be kept hidden at all costs….”
Summary from Goodreads.

Review of “Yoga for Everyone: 50 Poses for Every Type of Body” By Dianne Bondy

It can be ridiculously intimidating trying something new, especially when that something is all over the place and you don’t fit the physical image that is typically associated with it. Yoga is one of those things that everyone can do, but when you fall outside of the physical image typically associated with it, it can be terrifying and make you feel like you can’t do it and that you don’t belong. This book takes away that fear by being a complete introduction to yoga and giving new practitioners varying ways to do a yoga pose so that they can customize it to fit their body. It goes through 50 classic poses, with each pose having one to three variations that are photographed step-by-step with the varying models. These variations make it easy for you to find the way that best suits your body and ability.
