Book Title and Author: How to Master Your Emotions and Take Control of Your Life Right Now by Kira Braun

Genre: Non-Fiction

Reviewed By: Lina Tory

Star Rating Given: 5-stars

Review:

This book is short but to the point. It describes emotional aspects of mind power. This book helps organize thoughts and send in the right direction. For overly emotional people sometimes very useful.

Book Description from Amazon:

The aptitude to control and express our own emotions is significant, but our skills to comprehend, understand, and react to the feelings of other people also matters a lot. Just imagine yourself in a place where you could not understand the emotions of others, when your friend was angry, sad or upset on something. Psychologists use the term, “Emotional Intelligence” to refer to this skill. Some psychological experts even recommend that emotional intelligence should be given importance above IQ.

In this book, we would cover a lot of information about “Emotional Intelligence”, Factors that determine your feelings, The Action Signals and so on.

An Old Fashioned Giveaway

Chivalry is making a comeback with Old Fashioned. I had the opportunity of reviewing this book by Rene Gutteridge and I LOVED it!! Clay Walsh is kind of quirky, but in attractive sort of way. Amber is a little wild, but drawn to Clay none-the-less. This is one of those books that, really is a lot like Clay. It’s a little quirky, but keeps you reading.

Here’s the Book Description from Amazon:

Former frat boy Clay Walsh has given up his reckless lifestyle and settled down to run an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. Determined to put his partying ways behind him, Clay has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can’t help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life.

New to the area, Amber finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay and his noble ideas, but her own fears and deep wounds are difficult to overcome. Can they move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an “old-fashioned” courtship?

You can get a copy on Amazon here.

Along with the novel, I also was able to review the movie and devotional, and now I get to giveaway an Old Fashioned prize pack to one of my readers! I will say, that just like normal, the book was WAY better than the movie in my opinion, but my husband loved the movie, so maybe it was just me. But don’t take my word for it, get your own copy or enter to win the giveaway below!

Here’s a bit more about this prize pack:

About the devotional:
Softcover; 222 pages 
old-fashioned-devotionalContrary to popular opinion, being “old fashioned” doesn’t mean you’re dull or unromantic.  In fact, a true old fashioned relationship can be more exciting and romantic than anything you’ve ever experienced!  So what does it mean to do things the old fashioned way?  Sure, it means opening doors, holding out chairs, and taking things slow.  But a true old fashioned romance goes much, much deeper than that.  Inspired by the motion picture Old Fashioned, this book will show you how to reclaim the lost art of romance by introducing you to romantic love as God intended it.  Regardless of your past mistakes, where you’ve been, what you’ve done, or where you are now, you can find and create a love that will last a lifetime!  As you work your way through this forty-day journey of inspiring readings and questions for reflection, you’ll discover all the unique and amazing benefits of doing things the old fashioned way.  And before you know it, you’ll be well on your way to creating a love story for the ages.   
==> I’m only part way through this devotional, but I LOVE it!! It would be great for single young adults.
About the movie:
DVD Releases on June 16, 2015
115 minutes // Genre: Drama // Rating PG-13 
Old-fashionedA romantic-drama, OLD FASHIONED centers on Clay Walsh, a former frat boy who gives up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God. When Amber Hewson, a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul, drifts into the area and rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas, which are new and intriguing to her. And Clay, though he tries to fight and deny it, simply cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Ultimately, Clay must step out from behind his relational theories and Amber must overcome her own fears and deep wounds as the two of them, together, attempt the impossible: an “old-fashioned” and God-honoring courtship in contemporary America. 
==> This is definitely not a family movie. Think more young adult than PG-13. While it didn’t have anything explicit in it, there was a ton of implied innuendo and sex talk.
About the novelization:  
Softcover; 303 pages 
Old-fashioned-novel
Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town….and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance.  But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can’t help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life.  Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love.  They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an “old fashioned” courtship?
==> As I said, I LOVED this novel!!!
Overall this is an AWESOME prize pack that one reader will receive – that reader could be you. Enter to win above, and find out more about Old Fashioned by visiting them online with the links below!
