Book Thoughts: Heartless

HeartlessHeartless by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I cannot remember another ending that has traumatized me so. I loved reading this book so much that I am quite glad that it is a stand alone. I could not possibly have taken any more of that ending. Even my review feels at a loss for words. The worst part is that you  dread the ending from the very beginning.

Jest may be my new favorite book boyfriend.OMG he was just…so ..pure. Although I really cannot give away the number one spot which now holds Wolf from Marissa Meyer’s Scarlet from the lunar chronicles.so I will just have Jest sit here on number Two.I could not stand Catherine sometimes because I feel like if she had just decided earlier .I know it was a tough situation but goodness.

Marissa Meyer however is now hands down my new favorite author next to Rainbow Rowell. I’ve been trying to note the authors so that I can begin to see my type of book pleasure. I used to devour books without even knowing who wrote them.That has got to stop!

If you enjoyed Heartless by Marissa Meyer, let me know!

Bitter*Sweet December

IMG_0098.JPG

It’s finally December. The dreaded yet sweet, cozy  and cheerful December. I wonder if my readers are tired as yet of me setting goals and not finishing them but here I am again with some more. I have, thankfully, already started on this one which is, applying to Universities.

I have always feared the idea of being rejected as a result of my ‘not- so- amazing’ grades and also my country which people tend to have never heard of before. Anyhow, I have applied to one thus far and unfortunately I did not research how to successfully write a statement of purpose. I am in the process of applying to a second university and I have researched and began writing this essay. If anyone would have tips on writing the Statement of Purpose and the Academic Objective essays, please comment below some of your tips and suggestions.

I do not know any close friends who may be able to help with this but if you are like me, one of the best ways that I know, is to go back to school and talk to one of those teachers who you liked. I plan to follow up on this in a few weeks as I continue to apply. Sure, I am still afraid of rejection but I am more tired of not trying hard enough for things that I want. I have no money and no idea how I will financially pay, but how about I get accepted first and see what happens after, right?

Thanks so much for reading and have a blissful and peaceful December.

Book Thoughts: The Hating Game

The Hating GameThe Hating Game by Sally Thorne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I told myself that this would be the book I read only and strictly for when stuck in traffic . oh puh lease. when I arrived at the 3/4 mark and my eyes turned toward Josh Templeman at his desk through the eyes of Lucy… I found myself here at 2 am reviewing this heaven sent book of pure gold. This book had me missing my boyfriend at every page. To sniff him again the same way Lucy breathes Josh. Oh Ladies. What more can I say to convince you to fall in love with this book like I did. Their intoxicating love is so worth the late night reading. I laughed and loved with Lucy in the wonderful Romantic Comedy. I even forgot to update my good reads after realizing that I couldn’t put this book down. Maybe you might be different from me but I simply enjoyed this delicious taste of strawberry shortcake.*wink*

October In A Nutshell.

October went by before my eyes, I couldn’t even reach out and touch it. It zoomed so quickly pass that I feel like I just lived a month that I wasn’t sure what happened to it.

Strangely enough there were quiet a good bit of things. Brother’s’ birthday, Work party. I was able to admire the growth of my niece. I discussed life’s frustrations with my sisters. I tried to cook lunch more for both me and boo. I missed baby’s first day at the beach, I became exhausted with my job, and tired of it. I experienced the shock and uselessness of watching a friend mourn her parent. I admired my under eye bags. I started looking into university applications and basically in the end although I sigh at the start of a new month, I still somehow have hope.

                                         ……….. HOPE.

Book thoughts: A Man Called Ove

A Man Called OveA Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an amazingly,practically perfect book in my opinion. I am so impressed. I wish I had this book for myself . I was completely lost into their world and loving the characters. I loved the sincerity of Ove and how his mind worked.The fact that good was always good and there was no excuses for wrong. He was like a secret, all of our secret. we know how awesome he is but no one else does except for the people who grows to love and know him. I loved this book and goodness the ending was well crafted and so not forced. IT just seemed like a natural ending to a good story. I didn’t feel like it should change, it just felt right.

Celebrating 300 Days❤️

To celebrate our 300 day celebration we chose yet another Asian restaurant called Rituals Sushi. We set our budget for the night and headed out, me giddy as usual. I had always wanted to taste sushi and was bubbling with excitement. The scene was set near the Marina, and everything was beautiful including my date.

My Dimpled Chin Chocolate,YUM.

Our appetizers might have been one my favorite meals.I enjoyed it so much that I forgot to take pics of it. We both chose Spring roll appetizers which we dipped in the most delicious sweet sauce. It’s rare to have a vegetarian option taste so good! I was craving more of that one dish when I woke up this morning.

I also chose a Miso soup which was common in anime and other things of that nature. Naturally I had to taste it and gosh was it good. At first I was surprised wondering what is this watery brown thing. The very first sip was like traveling to another continent in one bowl of soup. It was also my first time tasting the famous seaweed which I adore in my Korean Dramas. I also forgot to take a pic of it as I was too busy sipping away.

Devouring The Spring Rolls Vegetarian option

Finally came along our highlight dishes. Tevin my love chose a salmon roll which I enjoyed more than my choice which was a tuna roll. His was drizzled with the most delicious sauce ever and then i chose to try it with the side soy sauce. SIGH .  I love when eating becomes more than just eating and instead you have an entire experience in your mouth.It was so good that I already hoped to go back to the restaurant sometime in the future.
