Summary: Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she’s made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings…
Told in alternating chapters is Darcy’s novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the ‘Afterworld’ to survive a terrorist attack. But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved – and terrifying – stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.

I have never read any books from this author, although I’ve been meaning to read Uglies Series for a long time, maybe later after I read this book. Ever since I saw a booktuber talking about this book, I was like, wow I need that in my life now. Its basically a book about a book, how cool is that?

Movie Sunday: The Fault in Our Stars

I finally saw this movie yesterday ( I know, I’m so late to the party). The Fault in Our Stars is based on Best Seller book written by John Green.  Basically the story is about two cancer kids who met in a Cancer Support Group and fell in love, yada yada yada. The first time I read the book, I never thought I would shed a tear — only because I had this expectation in mind that its gonna be another “Walk to Remember”. The girl got cancer, fell in love with a boy and she died. Man, I could not have been more wrong in my life. Damn you, Mr. John Green.

You stay there for the rest of your life!

Waiting On Wednesday: Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian (#1)

New WoW

10662433 Title: Ashes to Ashes

Author: Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian

Expected publication: September 16th 2014

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing

Summary: New Year’s Eve ended with a bang and Mary, Kat and Lillia may not be prepared for what is to come. After Rennie’s death, Kat and Lillia try to put the pieces together of what happened to her. They both blame themselves. If Lillia hadn’t left with Reeve… If Kat had only stayed with Rennie… Things could have been different. Now they will never be the same.
Only Mary knows the truth about that night. About what she is. She also knows the truth about Lillia and Reeve falling in love, about Reeve being happy when all he deserves is misery, just like the misery he caused her. Now their childish attempts at revenge are a thing of the past and Mary is out for blood. Will she leave anything in her wake or will all that remain be ashes?

Oh my God, Oh my God! I can tell you that I’m dying waiting for this book everyday. The ending of Fire with Fire still haunts me. Like I can’t even read another book or get into another book because of this. Ashes to Ashes is the final book of the Burn for Burn trilogy. I can’t wait what’s gonna happen with the girls and Reeve. Please please don’t make him — or one of the girls die. Well, except… you know if you read the book :p. And please a happy ending for Alex and Kat too! hahaha

Writer’s Block? Errr…

Hey guys! What is up?

Geez, it been bajillion years ago since I sit down and just writing for my blog. As you probably noticed, I keep posting book reviews or books related post on here. Which is okay, because that’s one of the reason why I created this blog. But I want my blog to be some kind of diary that I can look back, not just about book you know. It’s not like I don’t have anything to write, trust me, I have tons of topic list I want to write for this blog. I even pre-writting some of them on my notebook. Like I wanna talk about why I don’t trust pet shop to take care of my cats, talk about my driving lesson experience, my current obsession, things that i love, or simply what’s happening in my life. But, I just can’t get my butt off Pet Rescue Saga and Youtube. Every time I want to open my wordpress page to post something, I go to those two sites instead :( .

Book Review: The Waiting Room by Alysha Kaye

The Waiting Room Print 03

Rate: 4 out of 5 stars. I loved, enjoyed it, and would love to recommend this to everyone!

First of all, can we talk about the cover? It’s so pretty and I love it.

I always thought the term “true love never dies” is bullshit. After all, nothing last forever because in the end we all are gonna die, right? But I never really thinking what happened after we all die? Where are we going next? Either straight to hell or heaven?

The Waiting Room follows Jude, who dies in a car accident, and find himself wake up in The Waiting Room, place where all the souls waiting to go on to their next life, except Jude. He spent his entire time there watching his wife Nina through a window, until one day he learns that he’s the only one who ever wait that long. How long will he stay? Would Nina join him there? What happened when she did?

I love the whole afterlife concept that Alysha Kaye created, because it looks so ‘normal’ and so ‘human’. The Waiting Room is a light, fun reading that comes with great message behind it. I read it like one day. It totally answered my question about true love ;)

Thank you to the author who gave me the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. The Waiting Room will comes out on July 1st 2014 and it will available to purchase on Amazon. So don’t forget to go get your copy!
