Elizabeth Smart..... My Story

17287028If you ever -I mean ever- want to read this book (You have to read it!!) Have a box of tissues, emergency chocolate, and a happy movie on hand. And maybe the happy movie wont cut it because you'll be sitting there watching it and still crying about Elizabeth's story. 
And it would be awkward if someone walked in with you watching a happy movie, and well... crying. 

"What are you doing?" This is where you picture that person look of dumbfounded-ness.

uhhh.... Yep, drawing a blank.

"Want some chocolate?" *Offers the box up innocently while still crying*

Anyway, back to the book.
Elizabeth Smart. 
 The whole story captured the child like innocence of a fear/terror/ horrible experience of getting taken out of your bed and made to walk a long way with a knife at your back. Scary. 
 The whole book captured the true fear of one who is only fourteen. 
one thing did irritate me though and that was the fact that she kept repeating herself. I quickly got over it by the end of the book. 
And by the end of the book I mean... Well I was looking pretty darn horrible. So I had to wait awhile to blog this so that I could actually see properly. 

Red itchy eyes, puffy leaky nose, and bitten off finger nails. 
Not a pretty sight, right? 

I liked this book. Five starz it is, then. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/806160155

Just one year (just one day#2)

17465482I give this book about two stars and here's why,
 1. the beginning of the book. Drawn out, and way too long.
2. Willem de' Ruiter (if that how you spell it, If not i'm terribly sorry) In Just one day- http://kimberkatreviews.blogspot.com/search?q=Just+one+day-
 Willem -oh be still my heart!- was a fantastic, mysterious, love-me-not by who turned into a man. he was deep and sentimental. And then in Just one year he became so.... how do I put it?
B. O. R. I. N. G.
Yep, that's about right. And then you find out he's actually a wuss. Accidents blah, blah, blah. It was all an accident.
Yeah, right, Bucko.
3. The ending.  It was awful. I waited a year for just one year to come out -the irony right?- and it comes out. I read it.
I'm like;
Not my Image. Goodreads.com

It was like taking a walk a journey, really reading Just one Day. And then Just one year come out, you'r so excited! Heart pounding.
You read it.
Yep. Your feet are bleeding by the time you finish the book.
Then your like, "WHHHHYYYYY???!!!!" And scare the crap out of your neighbors dog. Who then, in turn starts barking so you can't sleep and all you can think about is the book you just read.

"Nough said."
Kkat, over and out.

Save the Date :)

Save the DateYou are cordially invited to the wedding of the year with the most unlikely bride and groom. Save the date . . . and say your prayers.

When funding for Lucy's non-profit job is pulled, she is determined to find out why. Enter Alex Sinclair, former professional football star and heir to Sinclair Enterprises—the primary donor to Lucy's non-profit organization.

Both Lucy and Alex have something the other desperately wants.

Alex has it all . . . except for the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancĂ©e in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn't quite what he seems, Lucy finds her heart—and her future—on the line.

Save the Date is a spunky romance that will have readers laughing out loud as this dubious pair try to save their careers, their dreams . . . and maybe even a date.

I read this book awhile back. And yes! I give it five stars. ***** 
Cause I have one word for this book, 
I mean, duh. This includes football, pumps, hot men, and an independent woman. 
Oh, And I forgot. 
It was funny! And the romance! *gasp* and-clutch-my-still-beating-heart!  Clears throat.
What are you still reading this for? GO. 
Are you still reading? 
I mean,       Come on!!!
Got. Get it. 

"Nough Said." 

Sold by Patricia McCormick

I was up late, reading my kindle until three in the morning. A beautiful book I could not put down. Heres why;

"I look around the table at mealtime. There is a pair of new girls. One sniffling over rice and dal, the other too dazed to eat. A third girl, one who has been here a while, is wiping her plate with bread. 
The first one is sitting in Monica's old seat, the second in Shahanna's. The Third is sitting where Pushpa used to sit. 
It occurs to me that, except for Anita, I have been here the longest." 

201114AM I PRETTY?
"In the days that the hugging man leaves, I consider myself in the mirror. My plain self, not the the self wearing lipstick and eyeliner and a filmy dress. 
Sometimes I see a girl hi is growing into womanhood. Other days I see a girl growing old before her time. 
It doesn't matter, of course. Because No one will ever want me now." 

This book.... from Patricia McCormick, I give you applause, Ms. McCormick. It was captivating, exciting, and well written. Something about this book just compels you to read more. To keep going and seeing what will happen to Lakshmi. This book is made with such simple words it makes you want to cry. Its like a slap in the face, of reality hanging right before you very nose. It opens your eyes. 
It makes you think about these girls who are sold into prostitution. It makes you think, "What if that was me?" 

"My name is Lackshmi," I say. 
"I am from Nepal. 
I am Fourteen years old." 
-Lakshmi, from Sold

I give this book eight stars. I can see why it earned a nobel prize.

A Poem By me :)

He passed me by
By KimberKatKreationz

He passed me by

So quickly

It didn’t hurt at first

Not until he had someone else to call his.

 I hope she holds him as tight as me

For I let him slip

Like sand

Right through my fingers

His softness no longer mine

The burn disappeared just as quickly

But his smell

 Lingered still,

Like a soft mist that told me he was still here

His arms were what planted me

To this Earthly Hell

His smile, so divine

Was mine,

But not anymore

Like a fool I thought I could stand by his side

Forever and ever still.

“Good.” His voice brought back memories

Of sweet kisses

Our hugs that seem to never end.

“Good.” I say again. Maybe I say it to break the silence. I have no idea at the moment. All I know now, is that I’m breaking inside.

 Good, is our forever.

But our forever

Shattered into a million little pieces that could never be put back together.

He opens the door and doesn’t look back.
