My Goodreads Reviews Part 23

Welcome to My Goodreads Reviews Part 23! I am presenting to you five new books I reviewed on Goodreads for your reading pleasure. Please show them some love.

Hotel Chelsea (World’s Scariest Places #6), Magic Poetry: Illustrated Children’s Verse for Ages 3-103, Peaceful Night Poetry: Sleep-inducing Picture Poetry Book for Children Aged 3-103, The Great Centurion: Punic Wars 2 (A Real LitRPG Roman Series), Deadfall: A Paranormal Tale

Hotel Chelsea (World’s Scariest Places #6) by Jeremy Bates

Not all scary places are haunted, and not all ghosts are spooky. Or . . . ? New York’s Hotel Chelsea is full of ghosts, or scare. But who will spook you, and who will survive? Or who is alive? Hotel Chelsea is a very peculiar place, and Hotel Chelsea is the most unexpected story. You are in for a boooo-surrrpriiiise!

Magic Poetry: Illustrated Children’s Verse for Ages 3-103 by Píaras Ó Cíonnaoíth

I am grateful to Píaras Ó Cíonnaoíth for a complimentary copy of this wonderful book. Magic Poetry is so much needed in this time of stress and turmoil, for it not only heals and relaxes our mind and soul but also brings us back to the time where everything was much more innocent, careless, and beautiful.

In childhood, just like in this book, everything is possible. Fairies, dragons, elves, goblins, gnomes, unicorns, mermaids, witches . . . they are as real as our imagination is vivid. And the simplicity of nature, like observing the tree or enjoying the kitten play, is never so intense and amazing when observed them through the senses of a child. Happy with their room full of toys. Or, in this case, happy with the book full of endearing poems adults will also secretly love.

This is my honest opinion, not influenced by the author of this book or anything else but my inner experience of, for a moment, awoken child.

Peaceful Night Poetry: Sleep-inducing Picture Poetry Book for Children Aged 3-103 by Píaras Ó Cíonnaoíth

Such a calming, sweet book! Recently, I do not sleep enough and too well. I am deprived from sleep both by the higher power and my guilt. Reading Peaceful Night Poetry at the late-night hour as midnight was approaching at the maddening speed was much needed and relaxing experience. It served its purpose not only by its soothing effect but also by the beauty of its verse and totally adorable teddy bear images!

I thank the author for a complimentary copy of the book. The reading experience I share here is mine and not influenced and conditioned by anyone.

The Great Centurion: Punic Wars 2 (A Real LitRPG Roman Series) by Angelus Maximus

As Roman enemies grow in number, boldness and forces, Victor Maximus, a brave general, continues his many battles for the glory of Roman Republic and pleasure of Roman gods. Fierce and bloody battles intertwine with Victor’s personal drama and challenges life throws at him in this second successful sequel of Punic Wars. Exciting and pleasurable read!

Deadfall: A Paranormal Tale by Victoria M. Patton

Wonderfully sweet and spooky. I had both goosebumps on my skin and tears flowing from my eyes. I wonder if I will look at the elevators the same way after Deadfall.

Happy reading!
