Hi guys! I hope you're all doing okay. I'm here to feature and review a book by Ms. Carlyle Labuschagne entitled The Broken Destiny.

Title: When a giant film production company takes apart your novel, what do you do?

Thank you so much to Journey With Books for renting me this space on her great blog to chat a little about giving and receiving criticism.
“You should attempt to veil your petty jealousy over not being nearly as kind, talented or beautiful as [actress]."
I got smacked with this message from a movie distributor after I wrote an obviously less than positive critique of his film. As part of my job at a national newspaper in Canada, I write movie reviews. I re-read that message several times, until the sting went away and then I swallowed the note (not literally — though eating paper is probably more pleasant than getting criticism).

Hi guys! Today, I'm discussing why I decided to be a blogger. At first, I was hesitant. I didn't know the first thing to do but I sucked up my fears and and put myself out because I really love books. I think it became my escape from real life. When reading books I get to be whoever I want to be. I get to live different lives and I get to experience things I will never experience in my own real life. It was really good. It was exciting! 
And because of my love for books I created this blog. It wasn't easy at first, it's still not easy till now but I got used to it. I created this blog because I wanted to show my love for books. I wanted to show how much I appreciate the authors for creating these books for us readers. 
It's not easy being a blogger. You need to be really dedicated to maintain a blog. I still have some hardships when it comes to meeting schedules and the high demands of being a blogger because sometimes real life has to come first, but even though it&…
