Die Welt unter der Lupe - zu Lande: Ausmalen und durchatmen


I ADORE this book!! It's not a big book...in fact, it's kind of a smaller book and at first I was kind of disappointed but as I started looking through the book and coloring a flower I began to see the awesomeness. The paper has the right tooth, the right size to it and it's easy to finish a page but also easy to start and stop at a minutes notice. I really loved this artist's style and someone else mentioned the thicker black lines - I actually love those!! I think it gives the pages character. This is definitely not a JB type coloring book and if you're looking for "her type" this isn't it. Rita Berman has her own style that's unique to her and her alone and although I've only just now expanded to reviewing Coloring books, I can say that Ms. Berman did an amazing job to make each page different and special.

The Forever Girl (Wildstone, #6)The Forever Girl by Jill Shalvis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a return to the Wildstone world that Jill Shalvis created and I always love coming back to that. This is book 6 in the series and it's about Maze and Walker. Jill describes this as "When Maze returns to Wildstone for the wedding of her estranged bff and the sister of her heart, it’s also a reunion of a once ragtag team of teenagers who had only each other until a tragedy tore them apart and scattered them wide."

I found this book to be about friendships, both those that needed to end in my opinion and those that needed nurturing. I found a group of people who had grown apart because that's what life does when we grow up - it pulls us in different directions and I found a new love or maybe it was a love that was always there.

I usually NEVER give away anything in my reviews and this will be no different. What I found different about what Mrs. Shalvis writes is that she writes several stories in one and makes you feel, as the reader as if you're really in that world. I love the world she's created and whereas some other author continue series and have continuity issues - she doesn't because she doesn't repeatedly have the same book over and over. It's always refreshing. I respect that and I applaud that. It isn't sloppy and it shows that her books aren't uniform which is why she doesn't put out 6 or 8 books a year. We, as readers appreciate the originality.

About the Book
Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.

But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes. Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.

One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.

Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.

The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast.

***

The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.

First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating. Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to. Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.

Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun. Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned.

She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud.

Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.

At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!

Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.

So LLV had already said that these books were gonna be about good guys who do bad things for good reasons and she wasn't joking. Lynn was a good guy who did some bad things, but he had good reasons for doing them. He seemed to be one of those guys that could pretty much get into anywhere, at anytime for anything and no one really knew why but certain people. I, personally love Lynn and waited for years for his story and it was right up there with Silas and Ghost story. Six was a perfect heroine for him because she gave no cares what people thought of her and she let it be known to anyone who wanted to know. I loved that and I wished I was more like her. As with LLV's books, this book had some twists and turns that you just didn't see coming and I'm not one to do spoilers so I'm not saying😉 All I will say is what a way to start the new year off!! Great job!!
