Anyway, my recent project is Drop Stitch Tunic, I got the pattern from Red Heart. I'm still working on it and since I'm busy finishing my last 2 units of school and studying for my CPC (Certified Professional Coder) Exam which will be on the first week of December. So, I'm really not sure when would I exactly finish this. LOL! But here's a glimpse of my crochet project:
But besides studying and maybe finishing my projects. I found time to start reading again. I have always been a book worm. I used to love borrowing books from the Library when I was a kid. And my first favorite author was Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon, writers of Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Series. I also read Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis and a lot more.
Anyway, recently I'm back to reading books and I love my Ipad mini because it's easy to upload my books and carry it everywhere. LOL!
So I decided why not start reviewing some of the books I've read here in my blog. And so...here it is...
Few months ago, I've finished reading 50 Shades of Grey by E.L James. This is the first time I read a very provocative, erotic, adult romance. I guess I was following the fad because everyone I know seems to be reading it. So I decided to upload a copy and read it. I must admit the first 2 books was very intriguing. I really want to know what happen next to Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. But I got tired of the characters, the story, and the plot by the time I started reading the last book, Fifty Shades Freed. Overall I still gave the series a 5 star at Goodreads and definitely looking forward to seeing it the movies.
After that, I read the Caged Series by Amber Lynn Natusch. And I super love this series, I guess I'm a little bias because I love paranormal books/stories. LOL! The story is about Ruby the rouge werewolf and the PC (Petronus Ceteri) Sean. It's a twisted love story mixed with thriller, suspense and drama. I love how Amber (the author) keeps you on edge and wanting (or even begging) for more after she ended each book. I'm still waiting for book 6 (Strayed), book 6.5 (Concealed), and book 7 (Betrayed) to come out. So if you have not read this book yet, I highly recommend it. Go ahead and pick up a copy, or upload it in your ipad, Kindle, Nook, etc. You'll definitely love it. By the way, I don't post "spoilers" here but if you want "spoilers"...head over to Goodreads. A lot of people who reviewed this book posted some "spoilers".
And last Sunday I just finished reading the first installment of Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.The movie is out right now so if you don't want to read it just head over to your nearest local movie theater. Anyway, I decided to read this before I watch the movie ( I hope I won't be disappointed with the movie- cross my fingers). It's a paranormal story of a Shadowhunter Jace and 17 year old mundane(human)/daughter of shadowhunter Clary Fray. The story got lots of twist and turns that will keep you guessing. I just finished book 1 - City of Bones, so I still have a lot of questions I want answered. This is a total paranormal/fantasy book with a little dash of teenage romance. I can't wait to see the movie version tomorrow, I'll post another review for the movie. But definitely, a good book/series and I definitely give the first book a 5 thumbs up.
I decided to go back to reading romance so I won't get burn out with paranormal books. LOL! And right now I'm reading The Light In the Wound by Christine Brae. I upload this book out of curiosity, it got good ratings at Goodreads. And the plot of the story takes place in Cebu, Philippines (my home country). I have not finish the book yet but it's kind of boring and dragging. Anyway, I'm going to try to finish it since I read a lot of good reviews about it. So I'm not going to review this book yet until I'm done reading it.^_^
So, that's it for now. I'll be back this week to review the City of Bones the movie and after that next month for more book reviews and maybe craft updates.
