I consider this as one of my treasures.

I’ve had this book for years. I think for four years, maybe? And i never wanted to read it. ‘Cause honestly, the book title and cover does not sound too convincing. Plus, it was the book that we had to make a report on during high school (which i made using answers from the internet). That’s why i never got a chance to read it. And when the idea that this was a book for scholarly use, i instantly became allergic to it. 

Then that day came when i ran out of books to read and the only thing that i never laid my eyes on is this book. So i gave it a try and read it. After reading the first few pages, all that i could ever think of is “How will the title of the book relate to this?” And so my curiosity ate me and i continued reading until i cannot stop.

I finished reading the book in a day with a few pauses staring at blank walls and just reflecting. (Yes, this book did it to me.) And i should say that so far, THIS IS THE BEST BOOK I’VE EVER READ. It’s more than beautiful. While reading it, you can’t help but substitute your own life into the character’s own and extract the symbolisms that it is telling you. It is full of life teachings without you knowing it because it was shown in a creative way. 

I’m just so thankful for that day when i ran out of books to read. ‘Cause that’s when i found the time to read this treasure. 

If you want to get inspired and follow your dreams, or personal legends, then you should read this book. Treasure it, and share to those people who need inspiration. 

Thank you, Paulo Coelho.

You may not want to miss this.

This is probably one of the most interesting books I’ve ever bought and read. Again, you may not want to miss this. I won’t give you an idea of what the story’s about but I assure you that it’s well written, unique and beautiful.

From what I’ve read, this is Ransom Riggs’s first book and I should say that it did hit the topseller’s section of the bookstores here. He really deserved it. And for those who get easily bored by reading full texts, well this is for you. There are tons of photos that can make you stare for seconds.

Looking forward to more of his novels. Cheers to Ransom Riggs!

Take your life into your own hands.

Image“Take your life into your own hands; otherwise you can be damned sure someone else will take it in theirs.” I got this line from this book, “The Scandalous Summer of Sissy Le Blanc” I just finished reading it and i should say this is such a good read. It’s about a girl who had been married since she was 17 and she never left town. She’s not happy with her life and kids but she’s not sad either. Maybe contented. I recommend this book to all those who are not thrilled by their own lives. It’s time for you to find your own adventure. Do not get stuck into something that does not make you happy. This book will surely help you and encourage you to go out and enjoy life. It’s never too late. Cheers to Loraine Despres!

A book of style in reality.

So i just read this book entitled,SNAPPED by Pamela Klaffke in two days and i really found it interesting. My boyfriend saw this book on a book sale and thought that i might like it and so we bought it. I guess that was a good choice. This book is about a successful woman who owns a magazine company which is popular for its DO’S and DON’Ts.There was a lot of ruckus in her life (you’ll find out if you read it) but what really captured me the most is that, there was this one time when she saw a girl dressed in a unique way. She knows that she’s a DON’T so she decides to take the girl’s picture. But then she realized that when you looked at it, it actually looked pretty good. And that got her confused. With all the experimental, unique, hipster styles that are trending nowadays, she just doesn’t know what’s a DO and a DON’T anymore.

There is a lot more to this story of course but that’s just the main point that i wanted to expose.

If you’ve read this already, comment and tell me what you think.
