She Ran Away From Love by Mawson Bear – Book Review

Hello Booklovers!!

Today I am here with another book review, of course. This is one of my all time favorites. I was rather attached with the first book. It is none other than the favorite adult picture book, She Ran Away From Love by Mawson Bear

Thanking Mawson bear for sending me a free copy of the book, in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis

The Light of Love pours down on Frilly. It shines so brightly that she quails and runs away.

Upset with herself for feeling scared, she wakes her good friend Mawson and pours out her confusions. She wants to learn how to be bold and is convinced that she can do this by going on a quest.

With muddled help from Mawson she sets off into the great Out There. But is a quest to find oneself really the answer?

My Review

As I mentioned before this is the second  book by Mawson. You can read my review to the first book by clicking here

This is a story of a little bear called Frilly who is determined to be brave and she is in a quest to find her self. Frilly wants to find the purpose of life. She receives the support for her quest through her dear friend, Mawson. There is deeper meaning the book carries and conveys to the reader.

The photographs were adorable. I fell in love with Frilly, she is such a cute teddy bear. The story gives life to the teddy bears, and it takes you into an enchanted world. Unknowingly, you are carried away with Frilly and her little quest and the best part is in the end there is something for you to learn. Something with a deeper meaning.

Normally I use Mawson Bear books as my stress reliever. They really do help you to feel relaxed.

Well, what more to say? If you still haven’t read it, it is high time that you grab yours. Read both of them, am sure you will be mesmerized with the wonderful world of Mawson bear and his friends.

The seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – Book Review

Hello Booklovers!!!

If you have been with my blog for sometime, you might already remember that I so badly wanted to read this book. Finally I was able to listen to the wonderful audio version of the book, which was amazing. Here is my review.

32620332._SY475_

Synopsis

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ’80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is a mesmerizing journey through the splendor of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means–and what it costs–to face the truth.

My Review

I was mesmerized by the story. It took me several days to complete the book. I am still a bit confused, on how to gather my thoughts to write a review about the story. We meet the protagonist  Evelyn Hugo, where she is ready to share her luxurious and scandalous life, her forbidden love to an unknown magazine reporter, Monique Grant. 

It is unbelievable how Evelyn started her career as an actress and her incredible sacrifices. I was genuinely astonished about her strong character, courage and will-power. It takes plenteous courage, for a woman to be as strong as she is.

The story relates to us about her earlier life, all about her seven husbands and her daughter. Nonetheless, it was not much accepted for one woman to love another woman, she takes the shot in the dark of loving Celia St. James.

The story touched a deeper place in my heart, because I felt for all the characters in the story. It was a wonderful plot, with carefully created characters, full of drama and revelations.

The only predicament that bothered me was, sometimes Evelyn was in extremes. That is the only reason I gave the book  one star less rating. Nevertheless, it was an amazing story about a strong woman and her hard life.

My Rating
