I am reviewing The Trust Protocol through Baker Books and Netgalley:

There are those people we meet and we feel an instant connection too, like we’ve known them all our lives.

In this book we are reminded too that there are times when we have to love others enough and to have them love us enough to trust when we are doing something right for them even if it doesn’t seem like it at the moment.

We are reminded of the importance of both establishing and evaluating motives. We are reminded too that the middle of messiness. The author reminds us that honesty is not only easier it is more reliable.

We are encouraged too to let go of Broken Trust, to deal with the hurt and betrayal but to move on with our lives.

I am reviewing a copy Of Writings From The Golden Age of Poetry through Columbia University Press And Netgalley:

Writings from the Golden Age of Russian Poetry talks about and showcases the life and work of Konstantin Batyushkov, who was popular in the early nineteenth century. His poetry was famous for its musicality and earned him the respect and admiration of Alexandr Pushkin. This book not only talks about his career not only as a poet, but as a diplomat as well as a soldier and about his decline into mental illness at only thirty four.

His work both in verse and prose embodied many aspects of life. His work spans the Napoleonic wars and the rapid social as well as literary change from Catherine the Great and Nicolas the First.
