September 18, 2017: Summer Reading
Hello, everyone. Welcome back to the Monday Blog. This week, in honor of Back-to-School, I wanted to share some of the books I read over the summer.
Just Another Girl’s Story: A Memoir on Finding Redemption by Laura Eckert
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author has a bold and amazing voice, and I appreciate the fact that she doesn’t make excuses for the mistakes she made. Instead, she OWNS them. This is a very courageous story of how a person can make mistakes in their youth, but they can learn from them and turn their life around for the better. It’s an encouraging story for anyone facing difficulties, such as addiction.
Our Band Could Be Your Life by Michael Azerrad
Since I’m into punk, I really enjoyed this one. There is a ton of background information about some of the earlier punk rock bands, such as Black Flag, The Minutemen, and Husker Du . It was interesting to read all about the early 1990’s DIY scene. If you’ve read Please Kill Me, you’ll definitely love this book.
Cursed Legacy (Aeterna Chronicles #1) by Anna K Lane
I’m a fan of sci-fi and fantasy, and this book has a great story and likeable characters. A seventeen-year-old boy living on the planet Levitor takes a simulated test in order to earn a position in the “Control Center”. However, something goes wrong during the test, which sets off a series of events, and leads him to wonder about his past and his true identity.
I’ve read other books, too, but these three really stood out this summer.
Next week, I’ll discuss the importance of mentorship, and Valentine 5.
What are people saying about Woolaston Entertainment Books?
Very good!! Val is a “tough girl”; for the millennium. It's refreshing to read a story where the characters, plot and dialogue are completely new . I hope to read more from this author.
I joined Goodreads to get acquainted with some new authors and, I was lucky enough to win this book. Nicole E. Woolaston writes her heart out! If you like the idea of a woman, who doesn't take any crap, you will love her Valentine Series. She doesn't take any crap, yet, she is full of heart. This book is fast paced, with something always going on. I look forward to reading the next saga in Val's life. -----Kathryn Green, Goodreads.com
Allan & Mac:
Let me begin by saying this story has some really great dialogue. Allan and Mac both work as hitmen, which is, a dangerous profession. But the light-hearted and sarcastic exchanges between them make you forget that they're being paid to kill people. Its the first in a sister-series to Woolaston's "Valentine" series, and its worth checking out. ---ebunny88, bn.com
I loved Mac she was so gutsy. She wasn't afraid to do her job. Love the black dress story.----jparris, woolastonentertainment.com
Love Mac's personality and the banal commentary while indulging in the least mundane activity. Keep it comin'!--- Jennifer, jukepop.com
Really enjoyed this book. The author is very creative , and the dialogue is very well written. This is a must read.---Robert, goodreads.com
I had the pleasure to read an amazing book written by an amazing author. Fortune's Wing had me from the very first paragraph. It was well written and kept moving with great anticipation as to what will happen in the next chapter of the book. I can't wait to read the next book...and would like to see all of these characters come to life on the BIG SCREEN. Kudos to Ms Nicole Woolaston on a job well done. What more can I say: I LOVED FORTUNE'S WING!!! Now, I have family members who wants to read the book!!----Pam Coghill, woolastonentertainment.com
Our Lady of Righteous Rage: Extended and Uncensored:
While I enjoyed the previous version of this book, I have to say I prefer this edition. Uncensoring this story makes for much more interesting reading. The cursing isn't excessive, which is nice, but it suits the story and the characters. Plus, I really enjoyed the fake Rolling Stone interview at the end. If you haven't read the original version, its okay to start with this one. Personally, I hope the author publishes uncensored versions of all of her work from now on. --Ebunny, goodreads.com
The censored edition of this book was good, the uncensored edition was even better. I think adding the swearing back into the dialogue, enhanced the overall "punk" feeling of the story. I hope Nicole Woolaston writes the rest of the Our Lady books in this way. --RM1978, goodreads.com
What happens when you mix Cats with Punk Music?? Something freaking awesome is what!! ---Stephanie Young, goodreads.com

Woolaston Entertainment, was originally created in 1994, with the sketch of the first character, a black cat named Vanessa. From there, I began creating several characters, writing several books, and drawing a series of comic strips. The W.E. or "Woolent" you see today, was founded in 2009, with the publication of "Fortune's Wing". Today, Woolent is a collection of my writing, poetry, artwork, photography, and comics. This website is my way of sharing my creations with the rest of the world.
My name is Nicole E. Woolaston. I was born in Queens, New York, where I currently reside. I began writing books for myself in first grade, and continued to do so, even after I graduated from high school. I published my first book, Fortune’s Wing, in 2009. Since then, I have continued to write the Fortune’s Wing series, along with the Valentine series, Valentine Apart, and Our Lady of Righteous Rage. I am also an artist: I have been drawing and painting since elementary school. I am a poet, songwriter, and guitarist as well. Hopelessly devoted to Green Day. My mother swears I have a great singing voice, though I beg to differ.
