Netflix , TV Show Review / February 28, 2015

Yes, yes, yes. House of Cards returns for another Season. Season 3 premiered on Netflix on February 27, 2015 and what a release it was. Millions of people completely blocked their weekend and did nothing else but sit down and watch tv. As did I… As wel all know, in the end of Season 2, Francis Underwood was named President of the United States. In Season 3 we see him as President, trying to make the best of it. His wife, Claire, seems to have an agenda of her own and wants in on the power. Together they must make the best of the time they have in the office. On February 4, 2014, Netflix announced it had renewed House of Cards for a third season of undisclosed length. On December 1, 2014, Netflix announced that the third season would be available on February 27, 2015. On February 11, 2015, 10 episodes from the third season became accidentally available on Netflix for approximately 25 minutes due to “a bug in the system”; however were quickly removed. I have not yet completed the season, but I am down to only six episodes left. And yes, I am completely hooked again. This third season is just…

Absolutely Positively Not…
Bookreview / February 26, 2015

A very very funny book, aimed at young adults. It is hard to find your place in the world and to find out what you really want in life. But in the end everything turns out for the best. Steven is 16 years old and has two major obsessions in life. Getting his drivers license and sex. But whenever he thinks about sex, it is not girls he thinks about… But Steven doesn’t want to be gay, he is absolutely positively not gay and he will do anything to prove it. So he tries out all kinds of things to bring out his true heterosexual self. Which of course always fails and turns out to unexpected surprises. I read the book with great pleasure, it even made me laugh at a few points. There is no sex in this book, aside from a little kissing. But it is easy to relate to the mind of a 16 year old adolescent boy and I am sure we have all been there at some point. Recommended reading if you want to read a funny but relatable book.

Joey’s Choice
Bookreview / February 26, 2015

I understand why this book is important, really I do. Suicide is always  a very sad thing and especially when someone decides to do it because they don’t feel accepted for what and who they are. But I am sorry to say, this book is just really really bad. This is the first Piper Kay book I have ever read, but if they are all this bad… In this book we meet 17 year old Joey. He doesn’t feel accepted and he thinks the world and everyone he knows would be better of without him. So one night he decides to take his own life. But just before he does, a mysterious boy walks in to his room and talks him out of it. Joey has a role in life and in the future people will depend on him. About a year later he meets the same boy that stopped him from taking his own life. He turns out to be another boy who also needs help, which Joey can provide. Judging by the ratings, people all over the world are crazy about this book, praising it to high heaven all over. But I just don’t see it I guess….

On Solid Ground
Bookreview / February 22, 2015

On Solid Ground is the first novel by Melissa Collins that I read, but I might read more in the future. The story was nice, but in my opinion to many things were left unanswered and needed more exploration. Jacob Daxton (or Dax for his friends) is a soldier returning home from the war. He has been through a lot naturally and needs to find his place back in the world again. His mother treats him like a little boy and his brother is the picture of perfection, he can never live up to that. But than he meets Beckett Ridge (Beck for his friends), a tattoo artist he goes to for a tattoo to remember his lost friend in the war. Beckett is bearded and covered in tattoos, but Dax is immediately attracted to him in the worst way. But Beck has demons of his own to deal with. Family trouble and he has to take care of his sisters daughter. Can he really find the time to deal with Dax as well? Both guys have issues and they need each other to deal with them. With a lot of love, support and some misunderstanding, hopefully things will work…

Somebody Nice!
Bookreview / February 21, 2015

Danny is 35 years old and lives with his 7 year old daughter. What he really wants is a man in his life, but he hasn’t even told his daughter he is gay. And now his daughter is trying to find him a girlfriend by placing an on line ad on the internet. Secretly Danny has been dating the hot librarian at his daughters school, but nobody knows about it. Should he tell his daughter about it or not? This story is one that came out of a contest that runs regularly on the M/M Romance Group. The idea is they place a picture online and then encourage people to write a story about the picture, what might happen and what the person or persons in the picture want and need. I liked the story but it was a bit on the easy side. Nothing really exciting happened and everything seemed to go smooth and easy. So if you are in to that kind of thing, please do read this story.  

We Found Love
Bookreview / February 17, 2015

We Found Love is a book written by 2 authors, namely Kade Boehme and Allison Cassatta. I am not sure who wrote what, but the book works very well for me. Riley Connors is a young boy who was kidnapped as a child and lived with what he thought were his parents. When the police rescued him and his real parents abandoned him, Riley lost it and was institutionalized. Hunter Morgan lost the love of his life, turned to drugs and alcohol and tried to take his own life. He also was institutionalized, which is where he met Riley. Both guys end up in the same room and after a bumpy start find love together. They both have a lot of problems to work through, but together they can take on the world. But Hunter is released sooner than Riley. Will Riley be able to stay strong and find his way out? And will Hunter still be there when he gets out? It is not the most easy subject to write about but these two authors do it very well. I could immediately relate to the way the institution was described and what it would feel like to live there,…
