Its a good read but not that good. I like It for the reason that it gives me an idea about Fashion and Stuffs since I myself loves fashion BUT! The ending is really annoying. I was expecting Miranda Priestly to change even a bit and be good to Andrea and her other assistants. I never expected it to end in a way that Andrea tells Miranda to Fuck Off and gets a job for Seventeen Magazine . Ugh. It just annoys me. And what happened to the handsome guy named Christian ? And did Andrea and long time Boyfriend Alex reconcile with each other? It just left a lot of unanswered questions and leaves you hanging. (less)

But the anticipation behind this book doesn't really comes up to my expectation. It was interesting especially with the anagrams and the mathematical theory thing and it was also funny at the same time but the totality of the book seems to be a bit boring for me. Very much unlike to other John Green books I've read. It was okay but that certain enthusiasm I have when I get to read any of Green's book is not just there.
It was nice reading it and any John Green book is really worth the read. So just check it out yourself. :)
PS. The new cover is so pretty that all I want to do is stare at it on my bookshelf the whole time. lol. :D(less)

Since this year started I've already read tons of books with different stories, genres and from different authors. I've been seeing Sarah Dessen books always lurking and making an appearance in every bookstore I've been too and I don’t really know what's with me not picking up any of them until last 2 weeks ago. I know, people might think I'm kinda late for entering this Sarah Dessen Land just now, but hey, it’s never too late for that. This Lullaby is the first one I tried and I’m really glad to say that this will be not the last book of hers that I would read.
Remy doesn’t mess around with relationships. After watching her mother jump from Husband one-two-three-four and the start of the fifth one, it’s no wonder she has an issue with relationships. This summer, she and her friends planned that there is going to be nothing but fun and her mother's fifth wedding, (of course), until Dexter arrived and nothing prepared Remy for him. He would do anything to win her attention and adoration and Remy herself can’t believe that she's coping up with him - the exact opposite of what she tries to avoid and what she really doesn’t want. But sometimes in love, no matter how many rules you impose and how many things you planned, they don’t just always go as it is...
Remy is the kind of character who has a lot of issues within her. She may get on my nerves from time to time but I still like her. She pushes everyone away and with her relationships she has this deadline. She was always on the run and the idea of something permanent scared her thinking that they might still leave. But the good thing with Remy’s character is the way she redeems herself by the end of it. She may come aloof and selfish and hateful, but when things call for it, she can also be sweet, caring and even funny.
Dexter on the other hand is the quirky, messy, gangly and the too persistent but still endearing boy. His persistence with Remy is so nice and how he collided on her life just blew my mind off and I just can't help but smile whenever he says something. He's very sweet and funny. I really loved how he slowly broke down Remy's walls without her noticing it. I loved how he makes her crazy. He may not be the perfectly handsome-pressed clothing-type of guy, but for me, his rugged and a little messy look complete his whole profile.
You might find the beginning of this book a bit dragging but as I go on with reading it and the characters and the story begins to set in to me, I just can't help but read it all throughout. The twists and turns and the unpredictability of its characters really caught me off-guard.
Very much endearing and Lovable. Everything just kept my attention and the swoony but a little cliff-hanger parts are great. Everything is at its right place and now I know why a lot of people loved Sarah Dessen and her novels and for me, this is just the start of my journey to the Sarah Dessen Land. :) (less)

This is such a very cute story! It makes me feel a little bit younger as to my young age today. haha. I love the characters, the cute plot and most especially it's theme park setting thing. Everything about it makes me smile. It was a fast and very sweet read and it would definitely give you that aww moment. Though it wasn't the type of book that is earth shaterring or life changing its still very worth the read. :) (less)

This is such an x-rated book for me! Gosh! I never expected it to be full of "those" stuffs. But still the characters are witty and makes me laugh, and i kinda enjoyed their conversations but STILL! its just so ugh!. So, Yeah, Sorry For the Two Stars Rating. Nothing more to say, just read it yourself and find out why it deserves a big UGH!! :)(less)

Two couples vacationing in Alabama are pursued by a maniac killer. They flee deep into the woods and take refuge in an old house that has been vacated for years, or so they think. They soon discover that they are not alone and that the killer has purposely lured them to this house. It seems that the killer and the house are somehow working in concert. They try to leave, but the house won’t let them. After receiving a message in which the killer claims to have killed God and now demands more dead bodies, the couples come to understand that the seeming malevolence of the house mirrors the evil within their own hearts and souls, and that they can only defeat the evil in the house by defeating the evil within themselves.
Basically, this story reminds me of The Saw movie series, well for one it was pretty creepy and full of suspense, i for instance never expected the turn of events. It was packed with mystery as to What? Why? or Who? is doing this to them. I like the details the author uses, because it keeps me reading more and more. Their sense of detail makes you feel like you're in the house getting scared.
So, that's it. Its an okay one. Pretty scary, mysterious and suspenseful but has a tendency to be boring. :)(less)

I decided to read this since its title really interests me but i was disappointed with this one since i'm expecting something extravagant to happen or there is a certain twist on the story but i'm definitely wrong. It has a very predictable plot and i can't relate much to the stuffs that's happening on the story since it has little flashbacks on the 80's time and i'm not definitely an 80's baby. Though predictable, some parts are still fun and cute but that's it, Not much to say since i'm not really satisfied with it. hehe. :p(less)

I'm really a big sucker for books that has great covers and this one definitely caught my attention.
I'm hoping this one would not be another story with a typical plot wherein The boy meets girl-get to know each other-conflict-and live happily ever after blah, But i guess i was wrong, it was just another typical chick-lit/contemporary story about a divorced girl with the name Lauren Crandell who likes to think she has everything under control, she is, after all, the junior wedding consultant at Forever Weddings, doing everything short of standing on her head to make sure all her brides get the weddings of their dreams, even though he own perfect wedding ended in divorce a year ago.
So, as Lauren spends her days creating perfect days for others, she ends up meeting Nick Corona, a gorgeous firefighter who comes to the rescue during two of her weddings. At the same time, Lauren finds her self planning the wedding of the ultimate Psycho Bride, Darla, who is demanding, spoiled and might or might not be involved with Nick.
So much for the story, so what could i say? I like it but i'm not so gaga about it. It was a sweet and funny story full of miss understandings, wedding talk and many mishaps big and small. It was a quick mindless reading and i finished it for just a couple of hours. Though the story was quite predictable at times it still give me enough surprises as it continues. I like how each character are developed and still give the readers enough suspense on how they would end, though at parts of the story i become bothered on how Lauren acted for she kept making assumptions and jumping to wrong conclusions without ever trying to find out what she'd been told was fact or fiction.
I like the easy way it was written simply and in a very intuitive way. I found out it already has a movie adaptation and i'm looking forward in seeing it since it was shown 2004 (an i was still a kid back then) so basically i'll need to catch it up. A Great Read for letting your time pass by. :))(less)

This is definitely one of the easiest book series to read, the pages just fly by. Though the plot was really predictable wherein it mainly consist of scenarios which flows like this friends-fight-not friends-boys-revenge-reconciliation-hanged up ending it's still nice to read for it is very light and would definitely make you laugh. So, that's it i've got nothing more to say. :)

Brady Gilbert, on the otehr hand, has a record label of his own but no band signed into it. He has a pscho ex-girlfriend and has a hobby inventing random things. Then they end up living next to each other.
Heaven’s in hell. And Brady just moved in. So what happens when an outcast and an oddball get together to take on the world?
Contrast to its title, this read is not really Stupid nor Contagious. It's an okay one, but I'm not really moved by it and I don't really absorbed it much while reading. Despite of my lack of enthusiasm while reading this, I kinda laugh at it at times.
It takes almost 50 pages or so before Brady and Heaven met. I really adored their chemistry and I loved their banter and fights with each other. Everything about this two is just damn so funny! haha.
I've got nothing more to tell, it's an okay one but I guess it's just not the type of book for me. (less)

It was so pink it seemed to throb with pinkness. Smack in the middle was a raised, gold heart, split in two by a pink lightning bolt. Above the heart, in white capital letters, was the books title. The Breakup bible
Jennifer Lewis has it all: amazing friends, editorial position on the school newspaper and the perfect relationship with her boyfriend Max Brown, her editor in chief and the boy of her dreams. Then, out of nowhere, Max casually tells Jennifer that maybe "it would be better if we were just friends," and the world comes to a screeching halt.
Shocked, Jen can't imagine how she's supposed to get out of bed every morning, much less face Max across a conference table meetings for their school paper. And when her grandmother gives her The Breakup Bible, a self-help book that claims its "commandments" can make her "the happiest dumpee on the block", Jen is convinced that the humiliation of heartbreak might actually be fatal. In fact, she's sure there's been a mistake-she and Max aren't really over.
As the semester rolls on, Jen finds herself on the trail of a controversial feature story and she starts to see herself and Max on a whole new light. and she discovers that there just might be life after heartbreak.
It was one realistic book! God! Everything about this is very real. At firsthand, I think it was pretty bizarre to read about break-up stuffs because I love happy endings as I endlessly say, but jeez I really enjoyed reading this book that I finished it in one seating.
The book is dived in three parts wherein I find it very weird since the first chapter is titled The End and the last one was The Beginning. It really is weird but as I go along with it, I find out the reason behind it and find it pretty cool!
Jeniffer is a good lead character and everything that she is is very real and very modern teeange-y. She acts and thinks that everything is fine and its just another ordinary day and the BOOM! her boyfriend dumps her. Seriously, even though I haven't experienced that kind of scenario and I really don't want that to happen, because I for one would surely not know how to handle it. HAH! its just very typical and would surely caught your attention at first hand. I really liked reading how Jennifer get through the heartache. I feel her every ache and sadness.
The supporting characters like Jen's best friends are very fun to read in! They are all pretty hilarious. Her supportive mother, gangsta brother, gay dad and gay step-dad (which is in relationship with her dad since he and her mother were already divorced) was one heck set of characters. They are all very fun to read in! I really enjoyed every encounter with them.
In all, it was really a good YA novel. EEP! I really liked it. The story shows us that there is life after breakups. Very High school yet everybody can relate. This is one smile inducing novel.

Fun Summery read! Rachel Hawthorne still has her own magic on this one. I've read almost all of her books and as far as those readings are concern, I loved them all. Her stories may not really happen in real life but hey if anyone could live up on them, I'm pretty sure all the girls and even boys would want to experience it. Hawthorne's books are all very easy, light and fun to read and this one is no exception to that, well except for the little unclear stint for me at the end and I'll get to that later.
Fresh out from High School and before heading to the real world of college 3 BFF's Jen, Amy & Chelsea plan to spend their last summer together on a remote island living on Jen's grandparents house. They plan to work and hang out as much as they can. Only that Jen doesn’t expect and count on the sudden appearance of Chelsea's boyfriend. She doesn’t count on Amy's passion for taking stray things -dogs, cats and boys but lastly she doesn’t expect on meeting a guy with eyes the color of a deep ocean...
As per typical of reading any Rachel Hawthorne novel, I just can’t put it down. I got so caught up again on the story and the characters and everything. Jen, Amy & Chelsea are BFF'S and though they're friends for such a long time now, they're still different from one another. Jen is the kind that wants to take charge of everything, she may seem to be kind of bossy at times but she just wants to take everything in order and don’t want any changes or sort and as I'm reading this I could see myself at Jen being all OC and wants to take charge and all. Amy is the mediator of the threesome. She's always on the middle on Jen and Chelsea's tiny squabbles. She has a tender heart and brings all types of strays which I find really funny. She takes cats, dogs and even guys! haha. Lastly Chelsea, the drama queen of the group Oh, and I mean it on a nice way. She may seem to be annoying and may act childish at times she's just being honest on who she really is. She's witty and very much loving.
It’s a summer of friendship and Independence and saving up money for college until Jen met Dylan. Dylan is just a passerby only looking to have a goodtime before he goes off into the army and unexpected things happen between him and Jen. And here comes the little stint at the end that I’m talking about. Though the story might end on a nice note with them being together I'm still rooting for more. As I'm nearing the last page of this book, I'm keeping my hopes up for it to have an Epilogue. I wanted to see what happened after their summer together would they still continue their relationship? Would they still see each other? Or is it just another summer fling for both of them knowing it really isn’t like that? Well, so much more question for me and it seems it may not have any answers to it. But still I enjoyed this story. It’s nice to see that each one of them learned a very valuable lesson during their time spent together. They all learn that living together is not easy as they expected it to be and it’s not really that easy to live and stand on your own and I'm glad that they withstand all of that.
A terrific summer book. The pace and characters will keep you tuning the pages endlessly. :) (less)

As a girl who lived on a tropical island all her life, I really do love to experience it even a bit besides I'm the type of person who is fond of the cold season. I wanted to cuddle on my bed and comforter, read books and drink hot chocolate, So, this book is definitely fun fun fun read for me.
Ashleigh's parents are recently divorced, and to make a clean start, she and her mother moved to a small island and decided to open a bed and breakfast. Then she met Nathalie, her first friend. And through her Ashleigh explores her new town and meet various people of her age.
Then, One bright morning, she wakes up and find a strange boy knocking on her bedroom door. After several encounters, she develops a crush on him but hey, the guy is in a relationship. Will they get the chance to be with each other and love happily ever after?
As the winter months on her new home town pass, Ashleigh realize that she likes the quietness of this new life she have and maybe, just maybe, this move might have been the best thing for her.
I never really know what's with this short stories that I loved about. One fact is that, I always enjoy reading Rachel Hawthorne's stories and I guess this is my 3rd book of hers that I have read and its still enjoying.
Even the story and characters are not that particularly memorable and unique on its own, I still love its easy, feel-good read. Above all the other Rachel Hawthorne novels I've read, this is the one that loved more so far. It's pretty sweet and simple. I never noticed that I'm halfway through it. A very enjoyable read indeed.(less)
