Poppy Wyatt lost her engagement ring during an eveIt’s about a girl who lost her engagement ring but gained something better – the right guy for her. Poppy Wyatt lost her engagement ring during an event, and to add further fun to this her phone got snatched. Afterward, like a miracle from somewhere, a phone presented itself inside a trash bin. Eager that someone will get in touch with her “new” found phone to return the lost ring, she insists on using it and she discovered the true owner of the mysterious phone. Sam Roxton works for White Globe Consulting Group, and the mysterious phone belongs to him/the company or rather to his ex personal assistant. They arranged to share the phone until the ring was found. But together with this they didn’t expect to share some info’s about their private lives. After all the wedding dramas and work related problems they end up together in each other’s arm in a very sweet and delightful way.
Sam’s character is my favorite. Kinsella beyond doubt produces those knights in shining armor or the rich and powerful kind of guys in all her books. His character is very alpha-ish and certainly compliments the character of Poppy. They’re opposite and the chemistry between the two is just superb.
The book is wonderful. Every book of Kinsella is like a present fairytale. She writes it like it’s her own experience and she tells them very smoothly and light. Favorite part is the last chapter that huge church commotion and the asking of coffee thingy which is just sweet. Least favorite is the confrontation between Poppy and the prospect mistress of her soon to be husband. I think it will be more exciting if there will be a little violence or at least some gruesome throwing of words but there’s none. Another thing that I dislike is keeping up with the characters I mean there’s just too many of them, so I think it’s better if you just focus on the main duo.
I recommend it to everyone especially those loves light reading and/or chicklits.

Naiisip ko din yung mga libro ni Bob Ong habang binabasa ko to’ pero alam ko na magkaiba sila may kakaiba sa mga likha ni Atalia, mas bukas ang isipan at mas tinatalakay ang mga interesanteng bagay na hindi pwedeng pagusapan ng mga sarado ang isipan.
Magandang basahin sa FX, bus, MRT, LRT at kahit na sa banyo pwede din ingatan lang baka mabasa. ...more

Maganda ang pagkakasulat bawat pahina ay detalye ang pagkakakwento. Witty ang approach at may nakakamanghang sense of humor. Natuwa ako sa plot at characters lalu na nung nalaman ko na konektado ang limang kwento naalala ko yung lumang pelikula noong early 2000 yung "Jologs" kung saan magkakakonekta ang buhay ng mga bida.
Maayos na flow ng story at kakaibang approach ng paglalahad ng kwento ang pambato ng libro na ito....more
Miles “Pudge” Halter has a very normal dull life of a teenager until he transferred to Culver Creek Boarding School and met Alaska Young who is made u Miles “Pudge” Halter has a very normal dull life of a teenager until he transferred to Culver Creek Boarding School and met Alaska Young who is made up of deep thoughts, different ideas and hilarious pranks. Pudge’s world collides with Alaska’s and technically turned his world 180degrees until the sudden unexpected tragedy. He goes on to solved the mystery but is having a hard time to move on and to continue his craves for the seeking of the “Great Perhaps”.
I like the idea of being inside Pudge’s mind how he analyzes things and stuffs. The mystery behind Alaska Young is probably the most exciting part of the story. I expected a lot more from the supporting characters like for the likes of Lara and Takumi because I think they can do more or contribute more to the story plot. As for the Colonel he is my favorite character hands down. As for the story collaborating it with the/some famous last words which is the interest of Pudge, gives the reader the mystery of what is or might have been the last words of Alaska Young and was she able to get out of her own labyrinth. ...more

Charlie, the author of the diary or letters, takes us to his everyday life and hThe story reminds me of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid minus the innocence. Charlie, the author of the diary or letters, takes us to his everyday life and how he seems to be just more of a viewer rather than a doer. The story takes us to mainstream high school drama and scenarios, in which Charlie is always in the background of things and not actually living his life the way it should be. He likes to give way for others and be selfless than to speak out his own mind and just go with the flow. In this book he takes us back to our high school dilemmas, from academic to drugs and sex, from friendship to lovers and, from being a viewer to a doer.
I don’t have a character of my choice maybe because the story is more of just a sharing of someone else’s life rather than joining the protagonist in his/her adventure.
I could relate to Charlie a lot though. He reminds me of myself and I think majority of us can easily relate to his letters. Everybody, I assumed, experienced one or more than two of the scenarios that Charlie had experienced but still it kind of sound weird when you’re reading it from someone else’s story.
The book is readable though it’s not that astounding. The mystery of to whom is he writing and why he is writing to that particular person is a big plus. I think the books lacks originality, but nevertheless the development of our main character has been tremendous and the fluidity is there. The message for me is so beautiful in fact we can use it as our everyday inspiration which is to live your life not by just watching everything but participate and do what you want without hesitations and pretentions.
I recommend the book to everyone and hopefully you guys enjoy Charlie’s life as well as I did. ...more

I advise that you answer it together at the same time because it will be enjoyable to reminisce the good times and just keep it on your shelf and look through it after ten to fifteen years if you are still together and bear in mind that very same pleasurable emotion when you are answering the questions in the book.

Kinsella managed to bag everything that we love about Becky Bloomwood plus other lessons in life which makes this book a little more interesting than your normal chick lit. ...more

The story itself, like any other book in the series revolved in Becky’s fascination in shopping but this time to make her feel less accountable it’s for someone else-her soon to be child.
I didn’t enjoy much compared to the other books in the series maybe because the protagonist seems to be more of self-centered than a shopaholic to me. But with Becky’s witty ideas and with her crazy thinking I still find it worth a read. ...more
The story is about a girl who suffered rejection and was bullied in her school by her friends because of an act she did which spoil their fun during oThe story is about a girl who suffered rejection and was bullied in her school by her friends because of an act she did which spoil their fun during one summer event without even knowing the real reason behind it. Melinda Sordino was disregarded by her whole school and she didn’t do anything about it, she just goes on with her life since she didn’t want to dwell with the drama. She sought to be alone most of the time which only further the damage and rumors that she may be crazy or just a sore loser. But things tend to build up and sooner or later she has to speak the truth and let the people around her realized what she’s been going through.
Melinda’s character despite the burden she’s experiencing was still light and witty and her humor was very unusual. Though she tends to be irritating at some point, she proved that she can still shine despite her weaknesses. The author captured the emotions and the high school drama that majority of us had experienced. Her protagonist stands out from other books with the same theme and I don’t know why may be her sarcastic way of looking at things and the way she looks at the world in a different perspective.
I like the book. It’s one of those books that you can easily remember because it seeks attention and needs to be read. I love the part wherein Melinda just escapes her way out of her troubles because I kind of do the same thing and I know it’s not the proper way to do things but that little time you devote yourself in a different world is already precious for us.
I recommend the book to everyone. Very funny and deep at the same time.

I don’t want to spotlight more on the reviewing part because majority knows how good it is so I just want to share my thoughts and insights about it. The Hazel and Gus “love story” is so tender and moving that they have touched every single reader and showed the world that being in that condition being unwell is not the only battle that every sick person has to fight but there is also that challenge of keeping up with their everyday “dull” human life. Moving along in the story I’ve realize how hard it is to be terminally ill there are a lot of sacrifices and a lot of drama which means it will be tough for you to see the other side of life. But thanks to Gus, Hazel has experienced everything that is missing in her life it’s like putting colors on a black and white film, their moments together was for me the real meaning of life that we should spend time with the persons with love and let the future days be meaningful with them. ...more
Originally I’ll just give it only a one star but because of Vee and her vee-autiful character and being perky fun I gave it a two.
In this book, Nora aOriginally I’ll just give it only a one star but because of Vee and her vee-autiful character and being perky fun I gave it a two.
In this book, Nora annoys the hell out of me. She is stubborn and careless and always anticipating for someone to back her up. Either Vee her BFF or Patch her guardian angel/boyfriend. The book obviously suffers the “2nd book syndrome” and the ending is a total cliffhanger. Maybe it’s a transitional book getting us ready for the next one. I don’t have a lot to say about it basically it’s just Nora finding the secret of her past blah, blah, blah. The character development was not seen and the phasing was super slow. After reading and giving Hush, Hush a perfect score I had high hopes for the second book but unfortunately it failed to meet my expectations.
Now, I’m not that excited to read the third book but I’ll still give it a shot. Hopefully Rebecca redeems herself on the third one. ...more
Hush hush is about a girl meets boy kind of story, the catch is he is no ordinary boy and she is not your ordinary girl.
Nora Grey walks into her biolHush hush is about a girl meets boy kind of story, the catch is he is no ordinary boy and she is not your ordinary girl.
Nora Grey walks into her biology class thinking that it will be the same class that she had attended for the past months, but she didn’t know this time it’s different. A different bio partner can cause a drastic change in her life. Patch is Nora’s new bio partner and things started to get a little different between the two of them. First, Nora gets some sort of death threats and she didn’t know why. Second, she had discovered something that might put her life in jeopardy and third, she is undeniably into Patch. Discovering the secrets and hidden past of Patch leads to more trouble for Nora. A wicked bitter ex-girlfriend on the loose won’t help either. Also, a crazy madman looking for revenge is another hurdle for her. She’s lucky she got a guardian angel to protect her Favorite character is VEE! I love her so much! She is just fab and amazing. I wished to have a best friend like her. Her character is somewhat very generic as a supporting role but those kinds of roles make the story more readable especially if there is some dull moments.
I super love the book. It’s a quick and light read. There’s not much of a “deep” meaning into it but its ok. Others compare it to twilight but besides biology class everything is different. Nora’s character is kind of weak and suffers from leading lady syndrome. She’s stubborn but in some part she’s careless and I liked that. The development of the characters was very poor but the plot itself made up for it because there’s fluidity.
Highly recommendable especially if you’re a YA fan or some sort of an angel fan. ...more
