Let Her Go - Passengers
This is only a trial. hahaha. Sorry for the crappy voice and everything. :3
Hello ^__^ Thank you, will do more books reviews soon. :)
The Heirs :)
I’ve heard many of my friends talking about this korean series and I just got curious especially when I learned that Lee Min Ho was in it. I loved him in City Hunter and I just died all over again when I started watching The Heirs this morning. I got hooked the minute I watched the first episode! Woooohhhh, my heart is filled with butterflies and delight and it just flutters whenever he smiles and does something to Cha Eun Sang ^___^
Plot: (from wikipedia :P) “The Heirs” depicts the friendships, rivalries and love lives of young, rich heirs led by Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) and a girl named Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye). The series follows a group of privileged, rich, elite high school students as they are groomed to take over their families’ business empires. These wealthy students seem to have everything under control, except their love lives. Kim Tan is a handsome and wealthy Korean heir to a large conglomeration who is sent to study abroad in the U.S. In reality, it’s a form of exile, as his elder half-brother back home, Kim Won (Choi Jin-hyuk) schemes to take over the family business. While in the States, Kim Tan bumps into Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye), who has arrived from Korea in search of her older sister. Slowly, he feels himself falling for her, never realizing that she’s the daughter of his family’s housekeeper. When Kim Tan’s fiancée, Rachel Yoo (Kim Ji Won), arrives to bring him back to Korea, his heart is torn between love and duty. Meanwhile, Rachel’s future stepbrother and Kim Tan’s former best friend, Choi Young Do (Kim Woo-bin) goes to the same school as Kim Tan and Eun Sang. The troubles arise as the heirs realize the differences between money and the real world.
WATCH IT GUYS! ^___^
The Five People You Meet in Heaven
Author: Mitch Albom
Overview: Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination, but an answer.
In heaven, five people explain your life to you. Some you knew, others may have been strangers. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie’s five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his “meaningless” life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: “Why was I here?”
Thoughts: I’ve read the author’s Tuesdays with Morrie and I really felt a connection with the characters there, now having read this yet another one of his masterpiece, I just fell. I love the book so much; I had a hard time parting with it. I read the last few pages ever so slowly to delay finishing it. It gave so much impact on the way I see things in life. I am fascinated with the idea of meeting five people in heaven after I die though there isn’t really a tangible evidentiary support that it’s true. The book opened my eyes that all of the people here on earth are connected by an invisible thread of life. Each chapter introduced new sets of characters and I am just in awe how they were all connected. This is an incredible book that everybody should read. It’s inspiring, it’s an eye opener, it contains moral lessons and values, and it gets you to thinking that there is still more to living that just minding your own business.
This book is amazing without a doubt! Read it :)
Finished The Storyteller’s Daughter for just a day! It was so good! :)
Yes, hello December! ^_^
Author: Wendelin Van Draanen
Overview: Juli Baker devoutly believes in three things: the sanctity of trees (especially her beloved sycamore), the wholesomeness of the eggs she collects from her backyard flock of chickens, and that someday she will kiss Bryce Loski. Ever since she saw Bryce’s baby blues back in second grade, Juli has been smitten. Unfortunately, Bryce has never felt the same. Frankly, he thinks Juli Baker is a little weird—after all, what kind of freak raises chickens and sits in trees for fun? Then, in eighth grade, everything changes. Bryce begins to see that Juli’s unusual interests and pride in her family are, well, kind of cool. And Juli starts to think that maybe Bryce’s brilliant blue eyes are as empty as the rest of Bryce seems to be. After all, what kind of jerk doesn’t care about other people’s feelings about chickens and trees? With Flipped, mystery author Wendelin Van Draanen has taken a break from her Sammy Keyes series, and the result is flipping fantastic. Bryce and Juli’s rants and raves about each other ring so true that teen readers will quickly identify with at least one of these hilarious feuding egos, if not both. A perfect introduction to the adolescent war between the sexes.
Thoughts: I LOVED THIS BOOK! I love its movie but I loved the book more! The movie was a perfect depiction of the book and I’m just so glad that they didn’t alter any scene.
The book is just so adorable. I laughed, I was touched, I felt sadness, and I fell in love with the idea of falling for the first time. Those butterflies in your stomach when that person you like looks at you, it just lets me reminisce my early years of adolescent.
I personally loved Juli’s character and background. I loved her wit and sense of humor, I loved the way she talks and sees the world, I loved his dad, her ever supporting family even though they’re not that rich.
The character I liked least was Bryce’s father. He was just such a pain, I can’t even. UGH
The books have amazing parts; I didn’t felt bored at all! It’s a must read for those who loves childish humor and of course, puppy love. :)
