  • O N C E-----Ask me anything, not Love on Aug. 22, 2012
    (no rating)
    Mian Mohsin Zia’s fascinating book, Once: Ask Me Anything, Not Love, is a different kind of love story. The reader is transported on an emotional journey as the main character, M, learns about himself, and ultimately discovers his purpose in ways that he could not have anticipated or imagined. There were several lessons I learned from this very enjoyable tale. 1. Unconditionally supportive friendships need to be valued and appreciated. 2. A person should not hide behind the facade of who he or she is supposed to be, based on who they always have been. 3. We need to be open to experience the full depth of our feelings and to be honest in our emotions. 4. When true love does come into our life, we need to recognize it for what it is and go for it. Mian did a nice job in character development. I liked his characters, and, more importantly, I cared what happened to them. Although the story did not have the fairytale ending I was cheering for, the conclusion was satisfying and it was certainly worth the read. -- Lisa Ryan, Chief Appreciation Strategist, Grategy; author of The Upside of Down Times: Discovering the Power of Gratitude and With Excellence; featured gratitude expert in “The Keeper of the Keys” and “The Gratitude Experiment” documentaries.

  • Victim of Shame: Why me, God? on Sep. 13, 2012

    This story was a lot darker than I usually like. There were some parts that I liked - Ryan Campbell had a lot of personal struggles to go through after a devastating accident and break-up of his engagement. However, I didn't think the main outcome of the accident (infertility) was realistic, nor was his fiance's reaction to his diagnosis. I prefer reading more positive stories so it just wasn't my cup of tea.
