Something in Between |Book Review

  
This novel is to die for! K, How many times did i say that in every book review i do? But when i tell you that that just means im dead serious. 

I probably have hundred times “Kilig” moments while reading this book. The way the Filipino life living in a different side of the world being portrayed in the story is just exactly how it is. As soon as i made myself immerge in the story it was then easy for me to put myself into the story. It explains so much about how immigrants live life in other country, not just Filipinos but also other ethnicities. And also, you don’t know how many times i said to myself while reading the book “thats exactly what Filipinos does!!” Its just too overwhleming and it made me happy.

The Love Story. Its perfect! I was in the middle of the story and i picture out myself doing a book review and i just cant wait to post blog entry about it, most especially on the Romance part. It’s Perfect!!! Its also satisfying in a way that you wouldn’t expect!! 👌👌  Also, i love how she puts uotes about immigrants in every chapters, it makes me feel inspired. The quote that i loved in one of the chapters is from Barack Obama…

  

  
PLEASE READ IT!!!

My Story |Marilyn Monroe

dsc_0363

just like the other books that I have reviewed, I don’t know what to say about this book. Speechless if I may to describe it but its the truth. I have come to meet the true beauty of her personality. what this book had offered me was the actual Norma Jean and not Marilyn Monroe. I have met her, I have been with her, I feel like I was floating back to her time when everybody doesn’t want her and I was there the whole time, listening to her. how can somebody neglect a person as precious as her??  she may be a sex symbol but she never easily gave in herself to the boys whose after her. some would just look at her and ask her to marry them, but instead of blushing, she made her thinking abilities work. she’s the top people I look up to, she inspires me. what the magazines exposed is nothing compared to what Marilyn Monroe have actually written. it’s a glimpse of her life on the way to the top. and I can’t help to say that I was there because that’s how it feels like.

the only thing that I never liked about this Book is that the last written sentence which is, “this is where the manuscript ended when Marilyn handed it to me” -Greene

 

BookHaul!! Love stories and Marilyn Monroe????

You know that situation when you just tell yourself that you need to see something Online and ended up Buying Bunch, that’s what happened to me last week. Sometimes, when I order online and I do it at night and I forgot what I bought the next morning until you received an email of your order confirmation that’s what you call “sleep buying” <lol>. So anyways, since I am proud to say that I don’t sleep walk but I do sleep buying, I will show to you what’s on my parcel in short, what I Bought!

1.) The Notebook

dsc_0364

    Legend! I have watched the movie of this million times and I am not sick nor tired of it. And yes, I haven’t read the book ever since. just before I bought this, I saw some video clips on youtube about the deleted scenes of the movie and it made me feel unsatisfied of what I’ve been watching for years! I totally understand that they couldn’t put everything in the movie, but what if there’s something in the book that is more different than the movie, like what if the essence that I see in the movie is actually different in the book. I don’t know, im weird. Hahaha

2.) Looking for Alaska

dsc_0365

      This one I’ve read already few years back. But I read it on my ebook so this time I want an actual book, how it feels and how it smells (if you’re a bookworm you’d understand my feeling). I probably even did a book review of this way back in 2013, I am not so sure. But anyways, I am so excited to read this one again.

3.) The Last Song

dsc_0361

      Okay, tell me I am not being such a Nicholas Sparks Sick. But his books are too good not to read, even the movies are blockbusters, so why not buy two of his greatest works, right? It is definitely one of the movies that made me cry. I remember sitting on my dormitory bed and just sob the whole time. Yes, it’s good and bad memories. Haha

4.) Marilyn Monroe

 

     I have never really shown so much respect and admiration to any Local or Hollywood stars before until I read Marilyn Monroe’s struggle to become the most anticipated stars of the lifetime. I have been buying dozens of magazines about her, read them and process them in my mind, there are different stories, different versions, and when I finally decided to buy a book of her life story, I have, again, Checklist in my mind of what to consider in choosing the right book about her. These two over here just caught my eye as soon as I scroll down, I have been reading good book reviews about it, and that’s one of my considerations. I am actually reading the “My Story…” and so far I am in Awe, it just never fails.

 

All the books that was used in this Blog was bought through my own will and from my own pocket. There is no Sponsors or whatsoever happening, I hope there is though <lol>

A Letter to Christian Grey

Dear Mr. Grey

                    You may not know me but I definitely know half of your story. Your Love Story. And I am definitely in Awe, I don’t know how to express my feelings so instead im sending this Letter to you. How can you treat women like that? I am not judging you as what you are, I am just asking how you get to be so dominant and Hot at the same time. No wonder Ms. Steele can’t say No to everything you ask for. you are attractive and smart, your humor and your ideas just makes my heart melts, every girls would love to beg if that’s what you want. You turn on every women who reads your sentences, you say one word and i get aroused then i began to question myself “am i really that speedy?”. When it comes to men, i have a lot of things to consider in my checklist, i have the qualities for sure, but then when i read your story, i looked at my checklist and thought to myself maybe my Basis are Boring, there’s a lot of realizations, a lot of thinking when it comes to sexually-involved ideas, but what you actually taught me is how to Love Unconditionally, there is no Boundaries when it comes to it, love is powerful, it can change every single thing you have inside or outside of you. I thought my life is complete and that Im contented until your story came and it changed everything i believed. You got this positive side on you that you influence others but you don’t realize it. Im glad Ms. Steele is there to pick your brain out when you think you aren’t. You both deserve each other. so here’s to me looking for my own Christian Grey. CHEERS!

                                                                                                                                                             Love,

Fantastic Beasts and where to find them (Original Screenplay) |Book Review

DSC_0336.JPG

It is my first time reading something like this. my first time reading an Original Screenplay that was written by somebody as big as J.K Rowling. if you haven’t read my last Blog entry about “books turned movies that I haven’t read/seen” https://teenhabitat.com/2017/01/13/books-turned-to-movies-that-i-havent-seenread/ I have never read or watched any books or movies that was written by J.K Rowling, not that I don’t want it, I don’t know, I was more of a romantic comedy reader before. so you might be thinking that its dumb to read Fantastic beasts without reading harry potter series, well, I’m thinking you’re right too. lol. Fantastic Beasts has no relation to harry potter, but Voldemort’s name was mentioned quite a few times and his death too so that made me think of about what happened during harry potter series. haha. anyways, Back to the Review…

I have never doubted J.K Rowling’s works, I knew right from the moment I opened the box containing just this awesome book, she won’t fail me and yes, she never did. I only read this book for 2 days, you know when that happened that means I’m totally into the story. so just to give you heads up, to some who haven’t read the book yet, it’s not the usual book that we get from novels, they are scripts as if you are one of the writers who have to proofread it and published into a very beautifully hardbound covered book.  In my whole entire reading life, since Percy Jackson, I have never read such beautifully written story. as I was reading it, I felt like they do scavenger hunting, I don’t know why, clues after clues, until I caught myself acting as if I’m part of the story. WEIRD. I had fun, I’m totally looking forward to the sequel, if there is one, I’m hoping, fingers crossed. this book is a total must-read and a must-reread. hahaha xoxo

 

Books turned to Movies that I haven’t seen/read!!

You know how sometimes there are some trends that you really don’t feel like doing but to other people it is their thing?? That’s what I feel right now. So today I will be talking about the books that are published and made into movies that I haven’t read or seen. Yes, I may be a movie lover and book lover but I am peeky sometimes, I gotta choose my options too. And this Article is all about it, this are the facts, i don’t know how did that happened but seriously its just that it doesn’t turn me on.

#1 HARRY POTTER SERIES

i haven’t read or watched their movies and book YET. but to be honest with you guys, since im into scifi too, i am going to read the Harry Potter series quite soon. I bought the box set and i am excited, but since i haven’t started yet, yes, i am one of those people who are innocent when it comes to this savages. i don’t know anything about harry potter series aside from witch craft. when i was a kid, i remember, my cousins would turn the dvd player on and watch this but i just don’t pay attention its either i already passed out or im in the kitchen climbing the countertops looking for something to eat. maybe because when i was young i wasn’t really into scifi as much as i do now. But soon enough, you’ll find me posting Harry Potter book reviews.

#2 Lord of the Rings

i just don’t. that would be my answer. haha. i don’t know why seriously, its just that i think its kind of crappy that they fight over a ring. i don’t know, its just that it never rings a bell into my mind, i haven’t even been tempted to try. plus their books are so thick, i told myself i can’t keep up that much. haha

#3 Twilight Series

they are cheesy, but i think it had been way too much. i like romance, but Vampires??? i don’t. plus the wolf, not good. it’s not my cup of tea. the story is impressive though. it is something that Vampire fans did got addicted to, but not me.

tyjutgy.jpg#4 Life of Pi

i have heard a lot of compliments about the movie and the book, but i never really bothered. for me it is something that i might gonna cry on, and im not really prepared for that physically and emotionally. hahaha. i know, way dramatic of me to say that but seriously, a good book makes you cry, you don’t like crying, so just stop doing something that makes you cry and sad and that’s why i never really thought of reading life of pi, the stories are just enough for me to know that this book/movie is no good for me, im a very emotional person.

P.S.

Now, don’t get me wrong. i really couldn’t say that this movies/books are awesome without actually watching them. it is what i thought that is not for me, not my cup of tea. so here i am right now, trying to share to you guys what i can say about it. do i have any plans of reading or watching any of this films? Nope, except for harry potter, which you should keep an eye on for my book review. and also check my personal blog littlemissmonroe.com.  xoxo
