Photography: Cute Bookmarks for good Books.

Last year in Barnes & Noble, I bought a bookmark with the image of Audrey Hepburn’s in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (one of my favorite movies) and I absolutely loved it, since then I started collecting bookmarks.

In our wedding anniversary my husband gave me one of Hello Kitty (I’d been always a Hello Kitty’s fan).

Today I found these three (on sale for around $.60 usd each) to add to my collection:

Book Review: More than a Shadow by Tony Rakestraw

More than a shadow

Book Description from Amazon:

Carrie Mitchell is the perfect size zero. Her life should be perfect, right? Not quite. Carrie has problems accepting her looks like so many others. Will she figure out a way to come out of the shadows and accept herself?

 

My review:

Have you ever found yourself looking at one of those size zero models or that girl super skinny in the mall thinking “I wish I had her body” “Her life must be so perfect” “She’s so lucky”, well Carrie is one of those skinny girls (one of those who are not models) and she doesn’t feel that lucky.

This short story gives us a glimpse into the life of Carrie, her perception of herself and how she deals with it.

From the first pages I felt sympathy for Carrie, and it hurt me as I realized how things were not easy for her,  I was really engaged to her story.

The only thing I would have preferred is that the story was longer, it would had been nice learn more about Carrie’s life (more depth in the “before” and “after”).

As this is a very short story I don’t want to give any spoilers, but overall I think it is worth reading it.

 

At the time this review was posted, More than a Shadow by Tony Rakestraw was free on the US Amazon Kindle Store, but as you may know prices in Amazon constantly change and may vary based on the territory, for that reason is important that you confirm the price before buy it.
