Book Review: Iron Widow By Xiran Jay Zhao

About the book:

Zetian, a 18 year old woman joins the war efforts as a concubine pilot. Where women are use as batteries and kill and thrown away like trash. All Zetian wants is to avenge her sister and kill the pilot that treated her sister like trash. Even if it means become a human battery to a Chrysalises.

My Thoughts:

I had issues with this book at the beginning but it slow got better and better. I would say this book is a slow burn book. I would go into more details but it would ruin the book. Since all the things that happens leads up to the ending. I hate to spoil book endings.

I will be giving away a copy of this book So I will be ruing the giveaway for 2 weeks it will be most countries but Russia and Ukraine due to the current issues of the battle that is happen but hopefully I will be able to ship to those countries in the future.

Video Game Review: Life Is Strange True Colors

Publisher: Square Enix

Game Type: Adventure Game

Hours I Played: 10 hours

Price of Game:  I bought my copy for 79.99 Canadian

About the game:

You play as Alex who is leaving the foster care home at the age of 21. Alex is traveling to Haven to live with her brother Gabe who works as a bartender there.

My thoughts: I really loved how the game ran so perfectly on the switch. There was no lag issues and the graphic were mind blowing how nice it looked on the switch. I wish I could tell you more but I would be spoiling the game but I can tell you what my final choice was at the end of the game. But I can say as someone who did growed up in a foster home this dealt with Alex issues about growing up in a foster home and her issues about it well. I chose to stay in Haven and live with Ryan. I am going to hold off playing Steph’s dlc for now. I am looking forward to playing the other life is strange games when they come to the switch.

I give this game 8 stars out of 10 stars and I highly recommend you pick this game up. It will give you all the feels.

Empties #1 2022

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well.

Smile Foot peel: (Rebuy) I use this foot peal and it worked well but not as good as the 29 dollars foot peeling mask.

Dove Blue Fig and Orange Blossom: (Can’t rebuy limited edition scent.) I love the scent and would rebuy again if they bring back the scent.

Pharamsave Mango and Kiwi body lotion: (Won’t rebuy) The scent was awful and the lotion was not moisturizing at all.

Bath and Body Works Freshwater body lotion: It is a lotion from the bath and body works. Not much to say about it.

Utterly Smooth Body Cream: (My ride or die product): This product work surprisingly well. I have repurchased 5 more jars.

Book Review: Humble Pie By Gordon Ramsay

About The Book: If follows Gordon Ramsay from childhood to adulthood. From his love of football to his love of cooking.

My thoughts:

This book is just like the title humble. Gordon Ramsay doesn’t blow his sail or give himself a big head. He is really proud of all the hard work that it took to make him a world renowned chef. I would consider him a inspiration for generations of kids who grew up with a abusive parent. Even though he grew up in that type of household. He never forgot his goals in life.

I gave this book 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Video Game Review: The Witcher III

Publisher: CD Project Red

Game Type: Dark Fantasy RPG

Hours I Played: 20 hours

Price of Game:  I bought my copy for 50 dollars on sale but it goes for 79.99 canadian.

About the game:

It follow Geralt of Rivia on his quest to find Ciri a princess who is like a daughter to him .

My thoughts: I was really disappointed with how short the game really is. It runs till level 30 and then they filled the rest of the levels with paid dlc. The main story was fine but could be a lot longer then up to level 30. I have not yet played the dlc but will at a later time and will review each one here.

I give this game 6 stars out of 10 stars.

NonFiction Book Review: Mafia Princess By Marisa Merico

About the book:

Marisa Merico, the daughter of one of Italy’s most notorious Mafia Godfathers, was dazzled by her father, Emilio DiGiovine. To her he was all powerful, sophisticated and loving; to the rest of the world he was staggeringly ruthless. Marisa knew her father would do anything for her, but she hadn’t expected just how much he would ask in return.

My Thoughts:

I felt that writing about one’s life is important but I felt it was more about what her mafia family bought her rather then her experience of living that life. There are times I just wanted to put down the book and not read it at all but I push through it and finished it.

I give this book 2 stars out of 5 stars.
