Reality’s Illusion by Stephie Walls

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Reality’s Illusion

Women’s Fiction

I give this book 5 stars!

Sometimes your mind dictates your faith…

Have a look at the blurb:

Relationships are ugly, dark—destructive.

They aren’t fairy tales.

No happily ever after neatly wrapped in a shiny bow or sparkling diamond with a heartfelt engagement.

And in their end, love was nothing but a beautiful lie told to hide the ugly truth.

This is reality’s illusion.



Some authors have the ability to make me read every single book written by them without even reading the blurb or other reviews. And this lady is one of them. Her books have been some of my favorite ones and being a greedy girl I want them all.
Stephie Walls is the author that I’m talking about. Her books have been my downfall, emotionally speaking, because she can make me cry my eyes out or laugh hard. Her words had taken my heart out, crushed it and settled it back together. She has one powerful writing.
Reality’s Illusion is her latest release and explores the lives of Sera and Bastian.
Sera is a sculptor. She loves to get lost in her art. She has endured a lot of pain by the hands of the one who should love her unconditionally.
Bastian is a painter, an artist. He’s in so much pain that no-one can help him. Losing someone you love can bring anyone to his knees. On social media, he found his peace, because when he sees a ghost…
I’m a mess right now. I’m sad, I’m mad, I’m furious. I don’t have words that can explain the way I’m feeling right now.
This book just…How can I talk about this? Because honestly, I’m at a loss of words.
Perfect plot, very well written, super engaging, super dark, super intense and it was a hard reading.
The way this author created these characters and the way she made them talk was so intense, that I felt it inside my bones.
I honestly feel like my heart was ripped from inside my chest, crushed and step on it and then put back inside again.
I don’t know how I’m able to think at the moment because my ideas are all fuzzy and my heart is so heavy inside my chest that I’m having trouble breathing at the moment.
Everyone knows that life is not always rainbows and unicorns.
We all know that life is hard, we have problems but we have to try to solve them, and when we can’t sometimes we just give up and pray for better days.
I had to stop a few times because I couldn’t read anymore. I was crying so hard that I couldn’t see the pages.
What I can say is that this book is not for the faint of heart. This book will gut you and will mend you at the same time.
This author has proven time and time again why she’s one of the best. She knows how to put her heart and soul inside each book and she knows how to make us read more and more.
Her books will crush us, will make us laugh, will make us cry but in the end, you will love every single word written by her.
Stephie… I don’t know if I’m mad at you or if I love you more.
You have created another masterpiece and the people who can’t understand you… Tough luck.
You had told me that this book was going to be heavy but dayum…
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

About the author:

Bestselling author, Stephie Walls is a lover of words–the more poetic the better.
She lives on the outskirts of Greenville, South Carolina in her own veritable zoo with two dogs, three cats, and Magoo (in no preferential order). She would thrive on coffee, books, and Charlie Hunnam if it were possible, but since it’s not, add in some Chinese food or sushi and she’s one happy girl.
