Last Book I read

 

Live Wire

The last book I read was called Live Wire written by Harlan Coben. It was actually the first Harlan Coben Book I’ve ever read. My friend told me back in 2011 that he was a great author and she loved his books, but I never really got around to read any of them until I bought one last Month. The Book is called “Live Wire” and in the middle of the Book I figured out why it was called Live Wire.

Like all mystery novels and thrillers there were some very surprising twists to the story, and at some point I thought I had it all figured out. And in the end it was nothing like I had imagined.

I like to know who writes the books I like to read so I Google them. (not weird at all… LOL) He’s a great author as I’ve already said before, but he’s also won various awards and has been a New York Times Bestseller ( Every authors dream come true…) Ever writer has a character they love the most and love to write about. Sometimes it because you have a personal connection to him/her or just because you made up such a brilliant character you love so much you try to use every time you have a chance to. Harlan Coben’s character is Myron Bolitar. He’s not Harry Bosch (Michael Connelly) but he is a great guy too and I feel that I need to read more books about him, because with only reading Live Wire there are so many things I don’t know about him.

So basically I feel in love with the Author and will continue reading his Books. I recommend this Book to anyone who loves a great Thriller full of twists and turns.

 

Buddha lifestyle

In the struggles of becoming an author, there are many good times and bad. Times when you feel you can’t go on and the ones you just want to quit and never look back. Not something to be pride of but it does happen to all of us eventually.

In these past years I created this blog originally for the purpose of informing my family what I was doing and so they could check up on me every now and then. But last summer I changed it up deleted all the old personal posts and reinvented this old blog into a new one. After the reinvention I wanted this blog to be especially for book reviews/opinions but I haven’t really had the time to even finish one book (very sad story, but unfortunately true). So the last posts have been of random things that interest me or inspire me.

So speaking of things that inspire me… You all might have seen my latest Non-Profit organization posts. Those posts are my passion, I would like you all to read them and think how good your lives are and see how many people don’t even have water to drink. (clean water) In this capitalist and selfish world we live in, people only care about how much money they have and how much they spend on clothes. We all forget that there are other people on earth that don’t have it so easy in life, people that sleep hungry and don’t have a place to call home. If even billionaire donated some money every month to charity or helped a family that needs it, we would already be living in a better world. But we are a cruel species and the more we have the more we want, we should all turn into Buddhists. Buddha a man that taught people how to be happy without all the things we something’s think that bring us happiness. Having these things won’t bring you happiness, he was a smart man. You see in poorer countries that follow Buddha’s beliefs don’t fight, there are also no wars that were caused by Buddhist’s because being a Buddhist means being open to other religions. Buddha never said someone should become a Buddhist he only said they should try it out he never forced anyone into believing him.

Buddhism teaches that the solutions to our problems are within ourselves not outside.

Remember if you want to follow Buddha there are three rules to follow…

(1)   to lead a moral life,

(2) to be mindful and aware of thoughts and actions, and
(3) to develop wisdom and understanding

Peace out

Writers

There are days I question myself why I want to be a writer and there are other days I know why I want to be a writer. One the days I lose hope in ever becoming a writer I think back to all the writers that must have once thought the exact same thing, but they didn’t give up and keep trying until they were finally recognized by the rest of the world. On those days I think about that, writers are like tennis players just maybe not so athletic and fit but we “play” with love and passion. We train hard and practice all the time, for the big moment in which we write, sometimes for days, we lose sleep hours, live o coffee and we wait for that moment of pure inspiration. I do consider myself a writer, I might still be a amateur and have no experience what so ever, but I write what comes to my mind and you can be sure everything I write comes from the heart. We are writers and we are proud of it. Peace out… Pic of the day.
