The perfect life.
The perfect marriage.
The jilted lover.
Their worlds collide.

Together they will learn that in the end, there can always only be one.


Okay, I will make this review short because I'm in a hurry and I have not written and posted this review for the blog tour. My rating would explain how this book is beyond explainable. Please note that and I will edit this when I got my free time (I'm just so freaking busy with school. College sucks.) As you have noticed (for my dearly usual visitors) I have reviewed and promoted the first book of Christine Brae. It made my heart melt and keep me crave for more of Alex, Issa and Jesse. Odds did not disappoint me on that. His Wounded Light came and I immediately joined the tour just to read it.

This book made me CRAZY for nights. I had hangovers. I need to read it as soon as I can to put up a review post but I fail on that. But I was not been crazy of it because of HOs but of the story, too!!

His Wounded Light is d*** full of suprises. I usually utter these words: 'What the H?' 'No, it can't be!!' 'WHHHHHY???' 'This is too much pain.' 'I can't handle this.' 'Please STOP.' It was well built and written. The characters' emotion keeps pace. You will never go out of place. It is a book with a soul of devastation and amorousness. I was surely affected by the characters. They're delivered outsandingly. No doubt for my five star rating!

His Wounded Light is a book of a strong positive emotion of regard and affection. It is for all lovers of NA. I have never thought I'd carry such devotion for this book.
In every wound and place of emptiness, love provides a light that guides you through the darkness.

Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle



Genre: YA Contemporary; Sci-Fi
Published January 6th 2015 by HMH Books for Young Readers
Seventeen-year-old Vivian Apple never believed in the evangelical Church of America, unlike her recently devout parents. But when Vivian returns home the night after the supposed “Rapture,” two holes in the roof are all that’s left of her parents. Suddenly, she doesn’t know who, or what, to believe. With her best friend, Harp, and a mysterious ally, Peter, Vivian embarks on a desperate cross-country road trip through a paranoid and panic-stricken America to find answers.

Life of a Blogger: New Years!

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Jessi from Novel Hermit where every Thursday we will talk non-bookish topics and/or to know more about the blogger behind this blog.


I am typing this as of December 31, 2014 4:55 PM. I cannot freaking wait for hours to come 'til 2015! I am glad to that I came across to Kelly's blog and have read her post with the Life of a Blogger meme. I really wanted to do such post--just talking about myself. I don't want to chat deeply or more of myself since this is a book blog but this blog is like my body. Without it, my reading soul is so freaking useless. Anyway, I honestly don't have anything to say by now. I just wanted to post something. So...

The whole afternoon, I continued watching My Love From The Star. It's a Korean Drama--Romance, Comedy, Drama, and Sci-Fi. It's the most funny and sweet koreanovela I've ever watched! You will be on the state of INSTALOVE!!! Kim Soo-hyun as Do Min-joon is so freaking cold but as the series goes, I. AM. *Spoiler alert*!! (Oops?! If you happen to love this kind of tv series and have not watched this yet) What made it in comedy is Jun Ji-hyun. She acts freaking hilarious here! I love love love her character so much. (<3.<3)

Oh, so much for my love for MLFTS.
How about you guys? How did you spent the last day of 2014? BTW, that GIF explains my mood before 11:59.


MALIPAYONG BAG-ONG TUIG SA TANAN!!!
It means 'Happy New Year everyone!'
