Crochet Tunic and Books I Read

I promise myself to update this blog at least once every month. But I was just too busy last month that I simply forgot. LOL!

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 it is...

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.
