***Book Review***
You know if Twilight Series is a parent it is definitely one of its babies. I don't know what's the hell are authors trying to copy twilight, I really don't get it, I mean originality is crucial to a story, right? I'm pissed off at first like "ARrrgh, another twilight crap wanna be!"

But I still enjoyed reading it, the writing is okay, sometimes lacking in descriptions. Midway, it comes to the point wherein Damen was like being totally mysterious, creepy and bad influence, and then a lot of things happens that I was frustrated because there are so many questions, but the story doesn't provide yet any explanations. You know like I keep on guessing because I really don't know what's going on. One thing I can say about this book is it's weird and then it gets really weird. But in the end somehow Damen kind of explains everything and it's kind of confusing and it's not clear enough for me.

My favorite part is when I've learned the meaning of those red tulips, actually I don't have an idea before that flowers have meanings and I really like that part it's sweet. All in all I did enjoy it.

Julie ngek, mukha pa naman maganda yung cover XD sucker kasi ako ng book cover, di ko alam na ala-twilight na naman ito

nakwento mo ata sakin to dati joyzi? tama ba yung hindi matuluy-tuloy na sex?


Joyzi Oo ito yun Julie pero yung conflict na yun ay nagsimula sa Book 2 na nabasa ko na din, tapos medyo tinamad na ako mag-continue sa series kaya nagbabasa na lang ako ng spoiler reviews. Tapos ayun I found out na sa 5th book wala pa ring sex na nangyayari, siguro sa last book may sex na. Grabe sobrang ang tagal bago nakapagcactus.


message 3: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie oo tama eto nga yun. bale yung cactus - term for sex, para lang sa book na yan tama ba?
sa pagkwento mo parang feel ko nakakatamad nga syang basahin :D

sayang, di nila ginaya sina katsa at po, first book palang todo na hahaha


Joyzi Oo nga e pinatagal nila yung sex haha, pero alam ko parang they can't kiss even hold hands e, yung couple dito si Damen at Ever kaya yun bali yung books #3 to #5 tungkol yun sa paghanap nila ng antidote sa curse


message 5: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie ang ttaagggaall naman ng progreso ng lab story nila. I can't wait that long.
hindi na talaga ako magtataka na di mo sya napagtyagaan haha


Joyzi Pero okay naman siya kung sa paranormal aspect kasi marami ka matututunan about chakra, spells mga talisman ganun pero yung love story at characters yung cons ng story. Si Ever kasi mas worst pa ke Bella, parang sinadya kasi ng author na gawing stupid yung heroine para makagawa ng conflict at problems sa story.


message 7: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie ayyyy joyzi, ayoko pa naman nun. asar na asar na nga ko ke bella dodoblehin pa! nako, di ko babasahin yan baka yan pa ang dahilan ng pagkalagas ng buhok ko hahahaha

kung papipiliin ka Blue Bloods o Evermore?


Joyzi Blue bloods para sa kin Julie, kung papipiliin nga ko kung Twilight o Evermore, mas pipiliin ko pa ang Twilight e


message 9: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie ang baba pala ng rating mo sa evermore, parang ayoko narin tuloy :D haha, so many books, so little time, kaya, eliminated na sakin ang evermore


Joyzi Yung book 1 3 stars yung rating ko, yung book 2 ni-rate ko ng 1, pero sa tingin ko ok naman siya lalo na sa mga teenagers, pero mas maganda pa rin yung Twilight


message 11: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie Twilight talaga Joyzi! :) solid eh hahaha


Joyzi Oo naman kasi gaya-gaya lang ito sa Twilight so nothing beats the original pa rin sa book 3 nga me bagong guy si Ever, Jude yung name, Jude = Jacob ang drama


Joyzi Oo naman kasi gaya-gaya lang ito sa Twilight so nothing beats the original pa rin sa book 3 nga me bagong guy si Ever, Jude yung name, Jude = Jacob ang drama

Julie yikes! anu ba yan? zero originality :X haha, forever!


Joyzi Ano ka ba andami namang gaya-gaya sa Twilight no


message 16: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie tama madami, pero eto naman outstanding ata sa panggagaya


Joyzi hindi naman atleast hindi naman 'to vampire book, more on immortals me similarities lang sa characters

Julie hahahahahaha, oo nga pala nawala sa isip ko :)))) hindi nga pala to vampire stories >.< sa utak ko talaga vampire sya hahahaha


Joyzi kung vampire 'to wala na sobrang rip-off na ang dating, but it goes with the same formula average girl meets supernatural boy and after 5 seconds baaaam they already love each other


message 20: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie lol, joyzi! like what happened between jack and sky! ganun din kabilis, favorite nila ang saying na "love at first sight"


Joyzi Oo nga e hayz, I think they really admire Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet


message 22: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie XD i think so too! gusto ko tuloy ulit panoorin yung movie ni papa leo haha


Joyzi Hindi ko pa yun napapanood, maganda ba yun? Parang modern Romeo and Julit yung ginawa nila. E yung anime na RomeoxJuliet napanood mo na?


message 24: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie panoorin mo sya ^^ bata palang ako nung napanood ko sya kaya medyo vague narin yung memory ko pero mukhang romantic naman. Pati yung The Man In The Iron Mask haha, naguguluhan din ako kasi parang may kambal ata sya dun.

Yung anime na yun dinadownload ko narin :) Pati yung last season ng Inuyasha.


Joyzi Napanood ko na yung The Man in The Iron mask, oo may kakambal siya dun, gusto ko din yun andun yung three musketeers e.


message 26: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie tama ka! :D buti ka pa naaalala mo pa, ako medyo nakalimutan ko na yung part ng musketeers haha. Parang yung isa, yung king ata masama tapos yung isang Leo mabait. yung naguguluhan ako, kung anung gamit nung Iron Mask LOL.

Joyzi, alam mo ba yung classic anime na the musketeers sa abs XD haha wala lang naalala ko lang


Joyzi Julie parang tinago kasi na may kakambal yung King ata yun o Prince, tapos para di malaman na may twin yung isang twin tinago tapos nilagyan pa siya ng Iron Mask. Tapos parang alam ko yung isang twin na naka-Iron Mask pinalaya ata siya tapos parang naging con-artist siya nung King.

Yung Three Musketeers sa Abs napanood ko din yun kasabay nun yung Ang Lihim na Hardin, Sarah Ang Munting Prinsesa, Tom Sawyer tapos yung Heidi at mga Munting Pangarap ni Romeo.


message 28: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie Ah, tama ^^ salamat. now it all makes sense! yung naalala ko pa parang hinagis sa tubigan ba yun haha.

oo sa ABS, yung lihim na hardin medyo limot ko na. yun ba yung may secret key yung girl tas parang sya lang ang may alam nung daan tas sa iba mukhang patay na yung garden pero sa kanya biglang gumaganda?

Ang saya ko naman alam mo din pala yung Munting Pangarap ni Romeo, hahaha. kasi yung mga friends ko nung college na wi-weirduhan sakin kasi di daw nila alam yun. kaya asar na asar ako kasi ni isa sa kanila wala man lang nagsuporta sakin hahaha


Joyzi Pinaka-favorite ko yung Munting Pangarap ni Romeo, nung bata ako napanood ko pa yun na Bisaya yung dubbing nung nagbakasyon kami sa Davao, kahit di ko maintindihan pinapanood ko pa rin yung re-runs.

Yung Lihim na Hardin yun ngayon, bali yung bata nadiscover niya yun tapos pinaganda niya ulit kasi di na naaalagaan, tapos kaya pala ganun e dun sa hardin na yun namatay yung asawa nung uncle niya ata na may-ari nung mansion, nahulog kasi sa puno yung asawa niya.


message 30: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie ako din, gustung-gusto ko yung pati Georgie super kilig ako, lam mo ba yun? ^^ yung magkapatid yung dalawang guy tas si georgie akala nila sister nila tas nung nalaman na hindi pala na-fall silang dalawa sa kanya.

ah ganun ba, hindi ko na talaga maalala to haha. Anu yung isang anime na may sikretong hardin din? XD alam mo din ba yung magic twins?


Joyzi Alam ko yung magic twins yung parang nakakapag mental telepathy sila, gusto ko din yun, yung Georgie ba yung parang namatay yung guy na gusto niya kasi parang umubo ng dugo tapos may taning na yung buhay?

Di ko alam yung anime na may secret garden din e


message 32: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie oo yun nga yun, yung may telepathy haha kinikilig talaga ako sa anime na yun. parang si alfred ng munting pangarap ni romeo ang umubo ng dugo na natatandaan ko ^^ haha pero baka nga meron din sa georgie.

hahaha, di bale hayaan na natin ang secret garden XD


Joyzi Sino nga ba si Alfred siya ba yung blondie na bata, uuhhm parang pagkakaalala ko sa mga old cartoons palaging me umuubo ng dugo tapos namamatay


message 34: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie hahahaha, natawa ako dun. oo nga eh pansin ko din. laging madrama lalo na yung classic animes. tas yung mamamatay pa yung pinaka-malapit sa bida kaya mas nakakaiyak.
oo si alfred, may kapatid pa nga sya na parang tomboyish XD


Joyzi Oo alam ko namatay pa nga si ALfred e, tapos ang ending bali ang nagkatuluyan e si Romeo tsaka yung kapatid ni Alfred


message 36: by Julie (new) - added it

Julie ayun! tama ka haha. para ngang may naaalala akong ganun.


message 37: by Caz (new) - rated it 3 stars

Caz Edmunds Halfway thru the audiobook. But Damen is far too mysterious. If a reader were far too impatient, he or she may just have given up & move to a faster paced book.
