Book review: Did I mention I love you?

Image result for did I mention I love you
 This book was terrible.

I think this is the lowest rate I've ever given and I don't want to be too evil because the author of the book at the time of the book coming out was 17, she was so young and still has a lot of room for improvement. 
Props to her for being able to get published at this young age. 
This is the usual novel discovered by a publisher on Wattpad and we follow the story of the main character Eden following the "California dream" she, like many girls her age, has always dreamed of visiting California.
Her mom and dad are divorced and her dad decides to show up in her life asking her if she wanted to go spend some time with him and his new wife and kids in California.
She said yes and as soon as she gets there she hates the place, and at the end California was not what she was expecting. 
She meets her stepbrother and he is the one she'll fall in love with.
I'm going to stop here with the plot to avoid spoilers in case you are interested to read it.
I didn't like this book because it is superficial. 
It's something that young girls shouldn't look up to because a guy that is an alcoholic, a drug addict and smokes like God knows what is not a more attractive man than someone that doesn't do this shit. 
I hate this books that are getting in this young girls' brains all this wrong concepts like toxic relationships are so fun like "Beautiful disaster" I don't know if you remember that awful book. 
As always full of bad concepts that nobody should look up for. 
The writing was bad as well, it seemed like nobody didn't even edit this book, it seemed like something that a 10 year old could write. 
Just didn't like it at all and it goes beyond the fact that I am not enjoying romance lately, like, where are the parents? They are kind of doing nothing to stop this kid from destroying his life, telling him that he can't go out because he's drinking is not going to stop him from going out if you know that he sneaks out at night and nobody sees him.
Lock the doors and the windows, get his keys, if he's drinking too much at a young age what will he do when he'll grew older, do something, now, don't wait. 
As you noticed I hated this book and I wouldn't recommend it. 
There are far off better books. 
I rate this a 1/10 and not planning at all on continuing the series. 
If you want to torture yourself here is the cheapest version on Amazon. 

I'm done for today, see you in another post.
Byee!

Aggiornamenti 2019

Ciao a tutti, come state? E' da un po' che non scrivo sul blog ed il motivo è che mi sono voluta prendere una pausa per via della scuola, della stanchezza e anche per via del fatto che non ho per niente letto in questo periodo, non ero proprio nel mood, semplicemente non mi voglio forzare a scrivere, il blog per me è una passione e non un lavoro, se non me la sento di pubblicare un articolo non lo faccio, non voglio forzarmi. Comunque, ho alcuni aggiornamenti su cui ho potuto meditare in questo periodo di assenza. Innanzitutto ho pensato ad alcune serie che possono uscire. La prima, quella a cui tengo di più è la serie sulla scrittura che sarà pubblicata ogni lunedì, con questa serie vi informerò di come procede il mio processo di scrittura ed editing di entrambi i miei libri che penso di pubblicare fra poco, ho deciso di autopubblicarmi per una serie di motivi che vi spiegherò in un apposito articolo che uscirà in uno dei lunedì dedicati alla scrittura, la serie si chiamerà …

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…

Designing your book cover for free.

Hey writers, how are you today?
As you may know I am all in helping authors to grow their platforms, in fact, as a lot of you know I am hosting some king of monthly giveaway in witch I help you promoting your book by reviewing it on this blog and suggesting it to some of my friends and to people that I think may love it, and if the book is so good it will have a permanent spot under my posts and a direct link to the purchase. 
Today I am offering an opportunity to all authors that haven't published their work yet and need some help in creating the cover. 
I have created my own cover for my first book, The last beat, because after I had payed a graphic designer he just got the money and never delivered the work, after I have told him that he was going to get sued he gave me my money back, so I am having a kind of hard time in trusting people on the internet again. 
This is why I am offering to you the possibility to have a free cover designed by me because after I got dropped by m…
