Quote of the day - Anger management

You know what, I have a hard week ahead of me. It's going to be very stressful and very exhausting. In a way the past year of my work is going to be exposed at the end of this week. I am stressed and angry with all the people what try to put me down and sabotage me, no matter if it is willingly or unwillingly.
So today I tried to find a good anger management quote, to repeat as a mantra throughout this week and as far as I can see this is going to be it:

The best fighter is never angry
- Lao Tzu

I hope that this quote will help fight my way to victory this week!

Quote of the day

I like the rain so much. I love sitting on the balcony, cuddled in a fluffy blanket with a cup of hot coffee in one hand and a good book in the other, reading to the sound of the falling rain.

To all the people out there, who dream the same dreams as me, I wish a rainy, warm ready weekend!

Big Thank You to my Readers!

Dear readers,

I don't know about you, but I am a big fan of reading books. I assume, if you have taken the time to go trough my blog, you have already seen that. I love to read books from almost all genres and from time to time it is really hard for me to decide what to read next. If I have to be completely honest, that
was the reason why I started writing this blog. The problem is that as old as the blog is, I still feel out of my debt with it. I am trying to organize and optimize it and believe me, I know that I am not doing a great job.
One of the things I have in my To Do List, is to reorganize the labels and the categories better. I am planing to end up with a lot shorter list, which will allow you, my readers to find what you are looking for more easily.
Having that in mind, I posted a poll! I would be happy to know what types of book do you like to read.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!

I wish you all a great day!

Review: The Emperor's Tomb

The Emperor's Tomb The Emperor's Tomb by Steve Berry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book!
The fact is that my mum gave me the book 1 year ago. It was hard for me to start it. I have started reading the book three or four times. I don't know why I couldn't continue reading it in the past. Once I started it the last time and passed the first 60 pages, I just couldn't let it go.

Mr. Berry did an amazing job. I am speechless.
The book was so interesting and fast pacing. It was cleverly written and it was sooo informative. The Emperor's Tomb made me start on the Cotton Malone series.
What I like the most about this book is that most of the information, which is used in the book is true and by reading it, one can really enrich him or herself.

Thank you mummy, for providing me whit the nice adventure of reading about China.
And... thank you Mr. Berry for making this trip with Cotton so pleasant and so beneficial. I can't wait to see where else your books will take me.

Review: The Death Sculptor

The Death Sculptor The Death Sculptor by Chris Carter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's not a bad book. I like the way Chris Carter writes and this book is as good as the first 3 in the series. The book has a lot of unexpected twists for a crime novel. It really reminds me of "Criminal Minds" with all the cruel serial killers and Robert the psychologist.

As far as the plot goes, I am very happy the this is the forth book that I read by Chris Carter, and although there is a hint of personal drama and love and so on, it stays only there, as hint. It was the same with the previous 3 books and the case is still the same. I am happy the Mr. Carter did not spoil a good crime story with a lot of the main character's feelings and emotions.

In short the book is well written and easy to enjoy. The only problem that I have with the way Carter writes is that he does not give the reader access to all the evidences. He says something like: Robert looked at the sheet in front of him and he finally saw it. But we don't know what is on that stupid paper. The writer does not give his readers a chance of solving the crimes by themselves.
