My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is just what I was looking for. It’s perfect for my students ( I am a kindergartner teacher). They love it. They love the characters and I love the morals. It’s perfect. The stories are interesting and help develop the children’s imagination. One day we even tried drawing a picture about Tomatozila. I can recommend this book to anybody who has children. They will love it.

4:50 from Paddington (Miss Marple, #8) by Agatha Christie

4:50 from Paddington (Miss Marple, #8)4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is pretty good. I love Miss Marple, but I have to confess that there isn't a lot of her in this book.
The book is more about the story and the crime itself, not like in the movies I have seen about here. Nevertheless, the book is quite good.
One thing I absolutely adore about Adatha Christie's books is the level of the English language. It may sound funny to you, but it is pleasant to read and be able to imagine all the coulours of the wind because of the rich vocabulary she's been using.

Amazing author, and a good book.

Men !!!!!!


С Черн Фередже ОЛЕ!

Снощи имах щастието да мога да гледам и да слушам група Черно Фередже на живо! И това беше най-професионално изнесения концерт (ако може да се нарече така), на който някога съм ходила.

Не мога да повярвам, че група, чиито текстове са така вулгарни и просташки (няма какдо да си кривим дуата) могат да са такива професионалисти.

За последните няколко години съм била на около 10 концерта и концертни представяния. Истината е че никога до снощи не ми се беше случвало групата, която трябва да излезе да пее, да започне своите изпъления 15 минути по-рано.

Бяха просто уникални! Уважиха факта, че по средата на седмицата хората се бяха събрали да ги гледат и дадоха найдоброто от себе си! Направиха много малка почивка (точно колкото за една цигара, както я и обявиха) около 1 час след началото на концерта. След почивата пяха и свириха още 1 час!

Най хубавото в цялото събитие беше обаче емоцията с която тези хора заразяваха публиката си! Всички на сцената, дори Фънки, се забавлявахо толкова искрено, че човек нямаше как да остане безразличен.

С две думи, концертът на група Черно Фередже на 12.11.2015 година, скри шапката на всички останали конерти и изпълнители, които някога съм гледала.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not a bad book at all.

The story is interesting and easy-going, but I have read a lot better books than this one. There is a lot of potential in this book, but alas it is only that - potential.

A Deal with God: The Power of One by Michael Haden

A Deal with God: The Power of OneA Deal with God: The Power of One by Michael Haden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hmmm, I haven't read a lot of books that include GOD. It was a little strange for me at first and I could not quite understand it. Then again, while I continued reading it started getting to me. I began understanding.

For me "Deal with God" is one of those books that you can see trough your ow eyes. One of those books in which you can always find something suitable for you, something that can help you while you are reading it. What I found inside that book was Deanah's will to survive and go around with her wife..... If she could manage it, that I can too!!!!

It gave me the strength and the stimulus I needed! Thank you!

The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax

The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax (The Mephisto Covenant, #1)The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax by Trinity Faegen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was a nice, quick read.
The book is a little similar to the "Black Dagger Brotherhood" minus all the sex. I think that for now at least I like this one better.
At least it shows teenagers some very important lessons.

I would ask all the parents to teenagers out there to read it. They might learn something out of it if they think about all the changes the children in the book go trough!I am a teacher and I can see some of the changes my students go trough in it.

"Кралете на трилъра" или моят отговор на въпоса: А сега какво да чета?


От доста време на сам търся начин, по който да преценявам коя да е следващата книга, която да захвана. Предполагам, че повечето хора, които обичат да четат, но не са запознати обстойно със светвната литература имат същия проблем. Много е неприятно, когато си прочел някоя прекрасна книга, толкова силна и въздействаща, и не знаед дали седващата ще може да те накара да се чувстваш пак по този начин.


Аз съм пробвала какви ли не начини за справяне с проблема, наречен от мен: 'А сега какво да чета?'

Опитвала съм да обикалям из книжарниците и книжните пазари с часове в четене на резюмета и гледане на обложки. Ровила съм се в различни сайтове за книги и хората, които ги четат. Дори има периоди, в които четях книги само от един автор или от една поредица, само и само да не рискувам някое книжно разочарование. Открих обаче, че едни и същи автори и герои лесно и бързо ми омръзват (след 5тата книга примерно).
И така един ден по препоръка на майка ми захванах една от книгите от поредицата "Кралете на трилъра" на издателство Бард. И тогава ме осени гениална мисъл, толкова проста и толкова гениална, че не можах да повярвам че не се бях сетила по-рано. Това беше решението. Не е нужно да се четат книгите последователно, рядко между тях има връзка. Запознаваш се с различни автори... А най хубавото е, че книгите са разнообразни като поджанрове.  Искам да кажа, че някои са по криминални, някои по-риключенски, по - исторически и т.н.

Безкрайно съм щастлива, че намерих решение на моя проблем: А сега какво да чета?
Сега всяка книга е гарантирана приятна изненада, нова вълуваща история и прекрасни емоции.

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Of Mice and MenOf Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don't know what was I expecting, but it was not that!!!!

The book is good. Very good, but it is very sad too.
It makes you think about all the hard decisions one has to make during his or her life. It makes you see what a decision can do to a person.

You know to be a good Human, a good Person is not easy and almost never pays back!

This definitely is a book that should be read!!!!!!

Revenge of the Witch (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #1) by Joseph Delaney

Revenge of the Witch (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #1)Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the book.
The truth is that I understood about the existence of this book because of its movie. I was about to see it in the cinema when I read under the title that the movie was done based on the book. My friends had to go and see it another time, because I said that I am going to read the book first.

I read it for two days. It is a very nice book. It is defiantly not a kid's book. No way. It is a book for parents and teachers. It's a book that can show you what is it in the head of a child. What a child goes trough before growing up!!!!!!

I am looking forward to reading the next one!!!!

Things to do on a rainy day :)

Hi everybody,

It is raining here today, so I decided to share all the things I am planing to do today, in this weather!

1. Make some coffee, tea or hot-chocolate (depends on the taste)
2. Curl up on the couch / in the bed with the remote or a good book, or in my case with both. I cannot be a racist and turn off the TV because of a book ;)
3. When you get stiff from lying in all day, stand and try to cook something. In my case the sophistication of the meal depends on the content of my fridge... I never go out for additional ingredients on a rainy day. This is the perfect opportunity for a wanna-be chef create a new meal.
4. When the cooking is done I am going to give the couch another chance to prove to me that I have to stay under a blanket there.
5. If step 5 does not work out, than work out! A long and relaxing yoga routine in goes perfectly with the noise of the rain.
6. If working out is not your thing, you can just clean the house, but no laundry if you do not have a dryer.
7. Get yourself beautiful: a bath, some pedicure and manicure work, some home-made face and hair masks...
8. Now, if all is done, start preparing yourself for the next day... choose what you are going to wear, this always consumes the rest of the time :)
9. Talk to your friends, make plans with them.
10. And last but not least if you don't want it to be, give the bed or the couch one last chance :)

This is the best rainy day I can imagine. Truth being said, I need a rainy week to do all this :)

Mooney : The Life of the World's Master Carver by John P. Hayes

Mooney : The Life of the World's Master CarverMooney : The Life of the World's Master Carver by John P. Hayes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I rarely read biographies. Really. But I have a friend that reads tons of them.
One day this friend told me that he has a book for me. That the book is very special, that this book would make me start thinking about the way I guide my own life. I thought that he was kidding, but .... I couldn't have been more wrong.

The book was "Mooney : The Life of the World's Master Carver" .
I cannot even start to explain what I felt while reading it. I was mesmerized. I think I checked about a hundred times, while reading the book, if this person really existed. The story is amazing, the person behind the story is even more amazing if that is even possible.

This is definitely a must read book. This is an example of what a person can accomplish. This book gave me hope, that I can accomplish a lot.

Thank you for the chance to have it in an e-book, because I live in a small far-away country and I would have never read it otherwise.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like the book. I am definitely going to read the next one.
The book is light and interesting. Has it twists and is not predictable.
I like the main characters, especially the male ones. ;)
The one thing I am missing in the book is at least a lil sex. I know that is not nice of me to say, but came on ... she is twenty - two, she is not that "hard", she says this herself, and at the same time.... no sex! :)

Fear

Today I am thinking about fear. It is such a great power. I think that until today, I have never really perceived its greatness, its depth. 
Me for example, I am afraid of so many things. I am afraid of highs, of dogs, of not being loved, but most of all, I understood today, that I am afraid of big changes. I think that this is my greatest fear. Changes. An I am not talking about changing my hair colour or my job, or my home. I am afraid that if I move to live with somebody I truly believe in, he would stop loving me, or live me, or die.... I just need to have a back up plan. I need, and this is a primal need in my mind and being, I need to have something certain. I need to know that no matter what happens, I would be able to manage on my own. The worst thing is that I understand my fear, and yet I cannot do anything about it. I know that I have missed so many opportunities, so many chances that I will never, ever have again. I have done that fully understanding what I am going to miss, and how badly I am going to miss it. And still, I have done nothing about it. 
What is that? What type of masochist am I to do this to me? And I still have time, I still can turn my life around, and I will not do it. Even while writing this, I know that I am not going to do what is best for me, I am not going to do the one thing that would make me completely happy.
I don't know if a lot of people fee this way, but I pity myself.
How bad is that?

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Now, this is one book I will NOT read again. I will not go through all this again. It was too vivid, too captivating, too much.
The book is amazing, but the end is too Stephen Kingy for me :)
I loved it but it is not for everyone :)

Quote of the day (29.05.2015)


Mad Max: Fury Road

Hmmm, I don't where to start.

First of all I have to say that I watched the movie on 3D on one enormously big screen! So, having that in mind the special effects were amazing. And it's here, where everything ends. If you are expecting anything else but special effects you would be greatly disappointed.

Mad Max is one great action movie, with no sense in it what so ever.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Now that was one hell of a book.

It took me so long to finish it.

I personally have an alcoholic father and the book was ... a bit too much for me.

Nevertheless, I cannot say I didn't like it. I cannot say I loved it either. It's a difficult book, not for everyone.
