Written by: LaSasha Flame
Narrated by: Matyas J.

This was quite an interesting story. Showing the backstory of Jafar and how he became the man he is in the Aladin books / movies.

Its not a very long book so I dont want to say too much to give things away. But I think many people will enjoy it. The descriptions contained within this book are very detailed to keep you knowing what is going on.

The narrator does a great job bringing this book out. His tones going up and down in all the right areas.

I am glad to have been able to get this book. I got it free in and am leaving an honest review of my thoughts on it.

Book Description:

As a fan of the fairy tale retellings, LaSasha is very excited to announce this short story she just released!

Christmas Freebies in 2020

So it is getting to that time again when people start getting ready for the coming Season. I thought I would compile some things that people may like to use. I am adding in pictures of what it is underneath cause just a lot of typing looks too boring in my opinion, and seeing what you will go to look at through these links seemed to be a better way to convey what's there.

So the first thing I was thinking of was a personalized video from santa and the one I found looks quite cute from this website here . There is a free option as well as paid options. Now I haven't tested it just yet because my daughter is too old for these, but I will still be testing it.

For those who like to make and personalize Christmas cards I found a cute site where it has that and more here .

I seen these cute templates you can print out for your child to fill in for Santa Here .

Phone call from Santa himself. So there is so many ways to have this happen, I am going to list a couple:
The first of which is one where you do not need a cellphone for. If you go here . You can choose to have a call come from Santa or The Elf and then there are 4 other options "Be Good" , "On My List" , "Something Special" , "Sweet Dreams". This is not personalized to your child but it can be something if you don't have a cell phone to use.

Now this was a hard call to chose between the multiple apps out there, but when I seen this one with so many options I thought I would pass it on Here , you can get it for iPhone or Android .

I hope these help people out during the coming season. I know I will be using some of them. a

Crazy Dangerous

By Andrew Klaven
Published by Thomas Nelson

This is a great read, i can really feel the pressure he is getting from the other children. This book is a great read for young adult and adults. I throuhgly enjoyed reading this book and hope to read more like it.

This book is about how Sam Hopkins (a preachers kid) is sick of being treated differently and falls into the wrong crowd. He realizes he needs to break away from them but is unsure how. Until a girl (Jennifer) is almost beaten up by them. He saves her, and gets many hit, punches, and kicks for it. Now she seems to think that he is her friend and his name is magical (she has schizophrenia, or so every believes). Jennifer tells Sam that something very bad is going to happen and soon, she told him of her this tree with a lake (and later he realizes he knows where it is). On Sunday, she later figures out and tells him, the bad thing will happen on Sunday.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.

Book Description

"You probably want to hear about Jennifer and the demons and how I played chicken with a freight train and—oh yeah—the weird murder . . . you're definitely going to want to hear about that."

Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with a bad crowd. Hanging around with car thieves and thugs, Sam knows it’s only a matter of time before he makes one bad decision too many and gets into real trouble.

But one day, Sam sees them harassing an eccentric schoolmate of his named Jennifer. When Sam finds the courage to face the bullies down, he loses a bad set of friends and acquires a very strange new one.

Because Jennifer is not just eccentric. To Sam, she seems downright crazy. She has terrifying hallucinations involving demons and the devil and death. And here’s the really crazy part: Sam is beginning to suspect that these visions may actually be prophecies—prophecies of something terrible that’s going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.

With no one to believe him, with no one to help him, Sam is now all alone in a race against time. Finding the truth before disaster strikes is going to be both crazy and very, very dangerous.

Beautifully Broken (New York Misfits, #1)

by Emory

I received a free copy of this e-book free and am giving it an honest review, for my thoughts.


Book Description:

Two years ago, I didn’t know I had a stalker. The cops swore my fiancĂ©’s murder was random. But the way the murderer looked at me behind his mask didn’t feel random. I know the cops are wrong, but they won't help me. That murderer; I feel like he’s been watching me for a long time, hiding in plain sight as I go about my broken life. Living with fear and anxiety is hard, but things are about to get a lot harder. "Beautifully Broken" is a gripping, contemporary romantic thriller that will keep you guessing.


Older Book Description:

Hey Siri, record a voice memo. Hi, my name is Paisley. These will probably be my last words so, here goes. Right now, I’m hiding in the bathroom. I’m sorry I’m whispering but I’ve got to be quiet; I think someone is trying to break in. I don’t know why, but lately, I swear I’m being watched. Someone is lurking, waiting for the right moment to hurt me. Why? Your guess is as good as mine; I live alone thanks to the man who murdered my fiancĂ© two years ago. I don’t date because I fear I’m too broken now, and my anxiety is too much to handle. I have one best friend who hasn’t kicked my paranoid ass to the curb. And my coworkers love me, probably because I’m always covering their shifts. Oh my gosh, here I am rambling when these could be the last words I ever speak. Ugh, I really am a mess! Anyways, who would want me dead? Ah I can hardly breath. My heart is pounding, I can’t even see straight, my breaths are growing more ragged by the second. Please don’t come in. Just leave me alone.

Love Heart Pendant Necklace

Price: CDN$ 22.99

Pretty little necklace. Choker type size on adults but still fits. Cute design. This one was my favorite out of the designs cause I love purple and blue things. Very glad to have been able to get this necklace though will likely put the pendant on something with a longer chain since I am not into choker style necklaces.

An Amish Love

by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long There is a page in front of the book the tells what some Amish words are that are found in the book, they are in alphabetical order. While reading the book those words are italicized. There are 3 different stories in the book. Healing Hearts, A Marriage of the Heart, and What the Heart Says.

First Story - A Marriage of the Heart At the beginning a girl, Abigail Kauffman, is annoyed by a guy (by his casual dismissal of her beauty), Joseph Lambert, and to pay him back she says that "he . . . well . . . just made me feel a little uncomfortable with the way he was kissing me . . . and touching . . . and I . . ." Her father then says he will talk to him and they will be married, but that wasn't what she wanted, but her father said to dress in blue (which is the color for marrying). Now she will have to face his scorn.

This story, when read in full, warms the heart. It made me smile in a lot of different parts of the story. Great story that is well written.

Second Story - A Marriage of the Heart A blind woman, Ellie Chup, who was in an accident 5 years ago, has learned how to cope with being blind. She has a buisness going called Ellie's Jellies. The jelly is in full demand, one person even wants 4 cases made up. She believes no one will ever want her, since her last fiance didn't want to be with her.

Chris is a guy who blames Isaiah (Ellie's Cousin) for the accident that took his fiance's life (the same one from where Ellie was blinded. He moves away 5 years and finally comes back thinking he may be able to forgive Isaiah, until he finds out his sister is marrying him in 2 weeks.

This was a neat story to read, it captures your interest right from the start with the nightmare mentioned.

Third Story - What the Heart Says. This is about a middle-aged couple who has no children in their house no longer and sets out to rediscover the love that had brought them together before their children. They have been an upstanding members of the community

All in all good reads but i would say my favorite was the first story, then the second and last (but not least) third.

Book Description:

Romance is in the air, old-fashioned courtship is alive and well, and love is an eternal promise.

Healing Hearts by Beth Wiseman

He left to find himself. She found her way without him. Now Levina and Naaman Lapp are together again, feeling miles apart. Although coming home was the right thing to do, Naaman must regain the trust and respect of his wife who, in his absence, has learned to trust God like never before. Could it be that their prior years together have simply been a preface to a greater love than they have ever known?

A Marriage of the Heart by Kelly Long

Abigail Kauffman is looking for a way out; Joseph Lambert is seeking a way in. Since her mother's death, Abby has lived alone with her father and longs to escape the emptiness of the farmhouse that has never felt like home. Joseph Lambert is a newcomer in their close-knit community. Only after they find themselves suddenly married to each other do they begin to understand the tender truths of life-long love.

What the Heart Sees by Kathleen Fuller

When Ellie Chupp loses her sight in an accident--and then her boyfriend shortly after that--she believes love will never be in her future. But Christopher Miller has returned home, five years after fleeing from the tragedy that broke his heart. When Ellie and Chris meet again, sparks fly. Could true love be a matter of seeing with new eyes?

Lost Coast (Undead Ultra #3)

by Camille Picott

I love this series to date, the author really goes into detail but not overly so that you find yourself skipping over passages. This is the third one in the series and they really give you a run for your money ;) pun intended.

Kate has changed a lot in each book, you get to see/read/hear how each thing affects her.

The book follow Kate again as well as a soldier name Ban. I will say that while it was interesting hearing things from Ben, I am more into Kate's chapters xD.

Ben really likes Kate which he speaks about in his inner monologues but he is really crud at expressing anything to her. Along with Kate and her training with the others, Ben helps everyone learn how to shoot guns.

There are some very shocking scenes you wouldn't see coming but still can bring your emotions to the extremes.

I was given a free audiobook on the Authors Direct app. This review is my thanks to the author for a great read that I really enjoyed. These are my thoughts on the book.

Book Description:

What if zombies evolved … and organized?

Out of the ashes of the zombie apocalypse, Kate and her small band of survivors have created a life and become a family. They train together, scavenge together, and survive together.

Their comfortable routine is interrupted by a frantic distress call. When Kate forms a rescue mission, she and her people find themselves faced with the unthinkable: evolved “alpha” zombies capable of organizing hordes of the undead.

Even worse, the alphas are on the move--and they’re headed straight for the university where the survivors have made their home.

Can Kate and her people outwit the alpha zombies and save their home? Or will they become part of the undead horde?

Dorm Life (Undead Ultra #2)

by Camille Picott

Awesome book.

This was a great listen, I was really glad to be able to hear it. The author was kind enough to give me a code for Authors Direct to listen to this awesome book. It is continuing the journey where the first book left off which was also a good book that you should check out as well as this one.

This book itself is has 2 sides, which is Kate and Jenna (Carter's girlfriend). The book follows both girls in the new world they are trying to survive in. What Kate is thinking and seeing , what Jenna is thinking and seeing. Each one having some different and some same thoughts on things.

Kate watches over the kids and tries to help them for the future they have all been thrust into. Getting them in shape could be tough going, but you will be able to read all about it in the novel.

Getting a copy of the audio book which didnt require me to leave a review, I am doing that on my own in the own thoughts, can't wait to see what happens next. (Also I have done them all but going back into them to re-listen cause they are a great series, and to write up a review on here instead of just on Amazon)

Book Description:

How do you survive the apocalypse when the only things your companions care about are pot, video games, and beer? This is the predicament Kate finds herself in after running two hundred miles to find her son.

Holed up in a dorm with Carter and his friends, she is surrounded by college kids who have no interest in gathering supplies, fortifying their home, or even taking out the trash.

Resources are scarce. Zombies are everywhere. Survivors prey on the weak.

Feet have become the only reliable form of transportation. Kate knows this better than anyone. When you move, you need to be quiet, and you need to be quick.

Kate needs to get her kids in shape. She needs to get their minds out of the Xbox and into the apocalypse. If she can’t, none of them will survive.

This next installment of Undead Ultra will make you want to lace up your running shoes, take out the trash, and kill some undead. Embrace the adventure and get Dorm Life now!

Undead Ultra (Undead Ultra #1)

by Camille Picott

I got a free audiobook code for audible. I had seen it in the passing and it was a new take on the zombie apocalypse scene that I knew I wanted to read it to see what happens in it, and I am very glad that I did so. I was not required to write a review for the code. Also I bought the ebook on a whim, to support the author and the great work they did writing this.

The book follows Kate as she runs to get to her son. Kate and her friend Frederico were ultrarunners but even this will test them to the limits as they try to scavenge for food, water, supplies on the way to their kids, all the while trying to dodge around the zombies and outwit other humans. Frederico to his daughter which is their first stop and Kate on her way to her son.

I have read the prequel first and was so excited to see where it blended into the main story. It did not disappoint me, it was so well written and blended in, that if you didnt read the prequel you wouldnt know that it was there.

Great read am glad I came across it in my travels.

Book Description:

Undead: a reanimated corpse with a craving for human flesh.

Ultramarathon: any footrace longer than a traditional marathon (26.2 miles).

For ultrarunners Kate and Frederico, a typical Saturday morning is spent pounding out a twenty- to thirty-mile “fun run.” It’s during one of their runs that an insidious illness descends upon northern California, turning humans into flesh-shredding zombies.

When Kate receives a desperate call from her son, Carter, she and Frederico flee their hometown and set out to help him. The only problem? Carter attends college over two hundred miles away and the freeways—clogged with car wrecks, zombies, and government blockades—are impassable. Running back roads and railroad tracks becomes their only means of travel, but neither of them has ever run so far before.

As pain, injuries, hunger, and fatigue plague them, getting to Carter and staying alive seem impossible. It’s either outrun the undead or become one of them, and for Kate, death is not an option.

A Summer Secret

by: Kathleen Fuller

This book gives you the info on certain Amish terms that you will read within the book, that are different than we would be used to seeing. (example: boppli means baby). It starts out in the barn, she is not supposed to be in. She is expected to drop whatever she is doing to help out her family. Mary Beth goes to the barn to escape all this.

The Amish terms are italicized to help them stand out for the readers, so you can go back to the front and look it up if needed.

This is a pretty good story. It is made for youths, but as an adult I still liked it well enough. I won't give the book away, but it has a nice and easy story line to follow. It has a nice ending, which may make you smile.

I have to say I really enjoyed reading this story, and it took me less than a day to finish reading it.

Book Description:

In the Mysteries of Middlefield series, readers will be immersed into exciting mysteries and authentic Amish culture.

With a twin brother and five younger brothers, Mary Beth Mullet's house is in constant chaos. Her parents don't seem to mind the noise,but she needs a break from all the pestering and babysitting.

It's the summer before eighth grade, and Mary Beth plans to escape to her secret place as much as possible. The old barn in the neighboring field is dangerous, and her parents have forbidden her to go there, but she escapes to it as often as she can.

Mary Beth soon discovers she is not alone in the barn. Someone is living there; someone who needs help. Can Mary Beth help the stranger without losing her secret place? And what if the barn is as dangerous as her parents say it is?

Readers will identify with Mary Beth's struggles for peace and independence and be engrossed in the excitement and danger of A Summer Secret.

Jelly Cleaning Gel in containers

Great to use on multiple items

I have ordered these in little packets before but when I seen them in these containers I was glad to buy these ones as well. I use these on my keyboard, fan, any area that has small cracks where dust gets into that it hectic to try and clean it out.

This gel works great on any surface I have tried it on.If you do leave it too long small bits might be left behind but its easy to get them up, just rub the gel in again and they will come out. It sticks to itself but doesnt stick to you. It does have faint smells of what the packaging says but I will say it doesnt quite smell the best if you smell it up close.

Water Storm (The Elements of Kamdaria 9)

by Kay L Moody

Awesome series continues. I was given a free ARC copy to read and am so very glad to be able to do so. I have loved this whole series so far and am really happy to see it continue. This review is my own words and honest thoughts of it.

The book series follows Talise on her adventures. You will definitely want to read them all, and the cliff hangars they leave off on makes your imagination run trying to think what could happen next in the books.

I am only going to give one small spoiler without it actually being a spoiler. In this book, there is a little girl name Willow and I have to say that I loved her characteristics. Also the ending of this book was a great way to lead into the next book.

I couldnt post this to Amazon as of yet since it is not yet released, but I hope to soon.

Book Desciption:

In the most dangerous part of the empire, Talise’s survival has never been in greater jeopardy.

And her heart has never been broken so completely.

When she discovers something is poisoning the land, the pursuit of it provides ample distraction from her aching heart. But the conflict in Kamdaria is only just beginning. Now she must choose whose side she’s really on.

Choosing one side could mean treason but choosing the other could mean death.

Ohuhu Art Markers Dual Tips, Brush & Fineliner, 60 Colors

Bought these as a gift for my daughter who is very into art and said these were a good brand. They were shipped fast to us, they work great. My daughter is loving using the markers and we will be buying more in the future.

I am more than pleased with the outcome of the product.

My daughter even bought their dawing pad to use after she got the markers I bought her and have already gotten that as well and used it with the markers.

Wireless Earbuds

Brand: Mijiaer

The sound quality seems good to me. My music played great. You can shake your head, do flips and they still stay in. They have multiple earpieces if you need a smaller or larger bud.

When calling I can hear people but on this end there is a downside. As you can see on the second picture the mic area(s) are in a spot where it goes into your ear meaning when you talk people can’t hear you. Your voice is muffled to the people you talk to.

I think they should have placed the microphone on the bottom of the ear piece cause then it can still stay dry from any rain but also allows people to actually hear you properly. Although if you leave the earphone in loosely they can hear you better but it’s more possible to fall out.

I only docked one star for the mic issues cause I mostly bought them to listen to music or audiobooks anyways.

5 pack of USB sticks - 16GB

Great product, it gives you 14.4gb on each stick (cause thats how these usually end up going).

I tested these to the limit where there was under 400mb left on it and checked things to be sure everything worked and was very glad to see it did. I have bought USB drives in the past that corrupt things as you get closer to the amount it states you can write cause they messed with the sticks data, but that wasnt the case with these.

Loved them and would buy again.

Light up Mask Halloween Mask

Great mask from the movie The Purge. Lights up in 3 different modes. One mode is steady, second is flashing slowly, thrid is flashing fast. Works on 2 AA batteries. So far doesnt seem to die very quickly so thats a great sign.

The cord you can move around under the mask to move it to the back or somewhere out of view, thought you could wear a turtle neck with this mask, which could work nicely hiding the cord and look good with the mask itself.

Glad I was able to check this mask out, will be fun to use on Halloween.

Rechargeable Bluetooth Wireless Mouse

This works perfectly with the usb stick, there seems to be no latency. I will say that the middle mouse scroll wheel doesnt like to be clicked much, it is clunky but scrolls smoothly. The buttons make no sound as you click (again except the middle scroll wheel which makes a loud click).

I never got this to work with bluetooth, whether it is my pc that doesnt want to find it, or the mouse itself I am unsure, but I think its the mouse as my computer finds my bluetooth headsets with no issue.

Solar String Lights

Got these late in the day and used my phone flashlight to power them up a little and so far are holding a nice charge for what little time I shined a light on them.

As you can see they have a nice low shine to them, which I love. I am really glad to have been able to get these, It was a long set so when I unrolled the edge it tangled, but wasnt the hardest to untangle thankfuly, just had to be a little patient.

The reason I didnt go right to the end of the deck is because I have squirrels living in m room and they use the end of my deck to get up. I didnt want the squirrels to knaw on the lights.

I can't wait to see how well these light up when they have actual daylight powering them up all day.

Soft Maple Sugar Candies, 105 g

These were nasty looking and definately not fresh at all.

I got these today and l was disgusted looking at these white spots. Each of them have At least one small white spot. (No the white is not from flash either sadly)

For the price you pay you want to know they are fresh and these just don’t seem to be with these white spots.

Using my hands these almost pure white ones these are super hard. I for one would not want to test and eat them.

I will never buy these again from this seller. Which is unfortunate cause I love maple candies.

Jelly Cleaning Gel


Keyboard dusty

Placing the gel and removing it

After removal

So I used this on multiple things one of them being my keyboard which has been quite dusty for a while now and wiping it down doesn't ever work as well as you would think. The pictures here show how it looked before I used the gel, and what it looked like after. The keyboard looks like its almost brand new again, dust free.

I will say that the packaging does say it smells like lemon, but I couldnt smell any, it was mostly a plastic type smell that I wasn't too fond of but thats not a big deal. It left no residue on my hands, it didn't stick to my hands at all. All in all a good buy to help clean hard to reach areas.

I used on my fan to get some dust that was hard to get at and it picked it up nicely as well

Multi-Functional Cat Tree Condo

Picture of my "kitten" on top who likes to dangle his head and my dog underneath:

"Kitten" laying on top of house:

My large cat on top and smallest kitty on the bottom was paying around:

This last photo is to show how large my one cat is, and he likes laying in the top and bottom:

This is to show you the size difference of the smallest cat we have and my doggo:

It took a bit of time to put together. Only about 15-20 minutes. Quite easy to assemble and pretty sturdy. It’s made of PVC pipes and joints.

My younger cat and older cats like it. Even my dogs liked going into the bottom lmao. Took a few pictures. For the comments that I seen on Amazon saying that it is not good for a large cat haven’t got a large one cause they can fit in the areas just fine. My dogs are bigger than any cat could be.

I really love this cat tree/bed and am really glad to have gotten it.

Silicone Teething Necklace for Mom to Wear

This was a nice long necklace with different sized silicon beads. This is long enough around your neck that your baby would have no issues using them for their teething needs.

It is not too hard on the gums, so babies won't hurt themselves when they chew on it, and its not overly soft that it wouldn't help them either. I think these are a great have for a mom or even a dad if they wanted to.

I am very glad to have bought this on amazon and checked it out, it will definately come in handy.

Court of Bitter Thorn (The Fae of Bitter Thorn, #1)

by Kay L Moody

I rate this 5stars

I was given an ARC and I loved every minute of it, I read it all through and could wait to finish it. This book has many twists in it and each one keeps you on your toes as you read through the adventures that Elora has.

The book follows Elora and her journey at the age of 17 and being betrothed. Elora didn't believe in Faerie, she thought that it was all a tall tale. Brannick needs helps and makes her an agreement, which she doesn't know that she would be forced to keep once she agreed fully, thinking it was just a joke she agrees to a certain terms (which you can read about). She finds out it was not a joke and isn't happy about it when she pretty much gets dragged to in to Faerie.

I hope to read the next installment when it comes out as I have loved this story right to the end, curious on what will happen in the next book.


Book Description:

Faerie wasn’t supposed to be real.

Tricked by a fae prince, Elora is stuck in the Faerie realm far from her young sisters who depend on her for survival. Under the terms of her bargain, she can’t go home to the mortal world until Prince Brannick becomes the next High King.

Or until he’s taken out of the running…

Sabotaging Brannick’s chance at the crown will be much faster than helping him win. The fae prince may be charming, powerful, and wickedly handsome, but that won’t stop Elora from selling his secrets to the highest bidder.

By day, she uses her master sword skills to train the prince, while ignoring her growing attraction to him. By night, she conspires with a rival king in a nearby court whose plans could destroy half of Faerie.

If she gets caught, Brannick will kill her. But what’s life without a little bit of danger?
