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!!!

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

dsc_0354

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,

Clarisse

 

Movies and Books to Cry On

We all have Different Personalities. Some people can cry easily over little things, some have a cold-stone heart meaning it takes forever to make you cry, in my case, im in the middle part (if that make sense), It takes awhile before you can make me tear-up. But, this Movies and Books was a tear-jerker that made me felt sad next thing I know, im tearing my eyeballs out!!

MOVIES

ytht.pngTHE LAST SONG

This movie really made me cry like a baby! most especially the part when her dad died, everything made sense, everything just turned into something. I was tearing up to the fact that she used to hate her dad for not staying in the Family since the separation. it’s quite a bit unbelievable sometimes how movies can make you feel dumb for not knowing what to happen next.

THE LION KING

You’re a Liar if you say you didn’t atleast tear up in one of the scenes in this movie. As a Kid, watching this cartoon movie is fun and exciting, it is filled with animals in the jungle, you learn the different kinds of animals in their. But if you watch it as an Adult, the feelings and the experience is totally different, you realize the true essence and the true meaning of a fathers sacrifice for his kids and also the weird thing is the part when The King died to save his son and you started tearing up, that’s how you know you’re growing up. it’s crazy because this animals that we used to memorize their names when we were kids, are the animals who will teach us the meaning of Hakuna Matata as an Adult.

ghmMIRACLE IN CELL NO. 7

This one is a Korean Movie, and im telling you, I have never seen such kid who acts like that!! it was really one of the best foreign movies I have ever watched, the whole point of the movie touched my heart. Usually when we say Korean or Chinese movies, the first thing that pops up from our brain is “shaolin” or anything magical from ancient dynasty, but this one is different. Talk about Comedy, drama, love story, all together pact in one movie, geez, I don’t even know how I survived watching this movie without my heart saying “hey, mind going for a little break?”.

 

 

BOOKS

uiktyhLOOKING FOR ALASKA (JOHN GREEN)

After reading ‘The Fault in our Stars’ by the same author, I thought to myself, ‘this author might have other stories to impress me’, I googled, and found out about this book, I would admit, I am not impressed by the title, it is not the kind of catchy title, but I swear to all the angels, I felt something good about this book. I was reading it for a week and all my doubts and all my cons about it disappeared. On the better side, i Cried. yeap. you read it right, folks! i didn’t expect the way the events turned, and i don’t even know what to expect in the first place anyways. and i said to myself ‘john green proved you huh’.

A WALK TO REMEMBER (NICHOLAS SPARKS)

ujykfI can remember when this movie first came out. I can’t forget the soundtrack and some few important and memorable scenes. But when i read its book, (here we go again) i Cried! i didn’t cry watching the movie, i don’t know why, my cousins does everytime we watch it. maybe because books are different from movies, although they may have the same plot and the same point of the story but you know sometimes when moviemakers changes some little things. i cried when she walk in the isle on a wheelchair, she still did it even if she almost felt like dying. what can i say about this book? SPEECHLESS. i don’t blame myself if i didn’t do a book review of this awhile ago, it is hard to talk about something that hit you harder. Bookworms out there, im calling your name out, this is true, right??

 

yjeELEANOR AND PARK (RAINBOW ROWELL)

This one didn’t turned out fairly, but the story, AGAIN MADE ME CRY! if you have read the book review i made about this few years ago (which is not that clear, and i apologize for a very lack of sense) you would know how im so into the story, not just it, but the two people themselves. i felt like im in the story, im inside the book with them, i felt like  was definitely in the state where i would collapse everytime the Climax of the story happens. oh geez, i am so into this books, sometimes it feels so dangerous.

Women: Courage and Faith

As I was randomly scrolling down my facebook account the other night, I bumped into this Video of Emma Murphy. She was abused by her Husband and Apparently cheated on her not once, but Twice. I am not writing this article to rant about her situation or to talk about what if’s and not’s, I decided to turn up this whole idea because I am a Woman, there’s women around the world who have daughters, nieces, and the issue and cases of Violence on Women and Children is Spreading like crazy!

When we say Violence, it talks about physical and emotional abuse. Does women deserve this? why does men keeps on doing it to some women? if they aren’t happy with the way the relationship goes, why can’t they just leave? there are lots of questions in my mind roaming around, and I still keep on looking for answers but it seems like I can’t find any. Sometimes, I want to sit down and talk to the men who abused there women and just ask them why to answer the questions I have inside me, but it will never happen.

I feel bad knowing that also in a situation like Emma’s, it is not her that is just being hurt, they have kids, she have kids, a one-year-old kid may never understand but she/he can still see. do you know how it feels like to see your kid looking at you while your husband is hitting you? its worth a lot of Pain. if the Marriage is the first issue in the first place, why can’t just try to fix it? does sleeping with other women makes everything okay? if not, then why do you keep on doing it? you can’t have everything in life. the greediness and the selfishness of a person gives him the reason to make himself feel capable of doing anything, which is not what it should be.

Women are not weak. Women are not just a thing that you can use whenever you want. We have feelings, there will always be a woman behind every man, whether its your common law, your wife, your mother, your aunt or your grandma. Women are meant to be loved, so if you as a Man can’t do that, ask a kid, maybe they know better than you.

Chronicles of Shredding Pounds (Entry #1)

IMG_5581[1]As a Person who weighs 198 lbs. at the age of 21 it is hard to not get conscious at all times. The average weight of a 21-year-old is only supposed to be 145 lbs. but im 53 lbs. more and it is not normal, you already call it overweight. As a Lady, who always get judged by the way we look, it is hard to be in the public sometimes, I know we shouldn’t be defined by how our physical appearances looks like, but the society is way more cruel than you thought. I have been trying to improve my Self for the past years and I am not really doing well, I have lost few pounds last summer, I worked out everyday for 2 months and I kept track of what I eat, but then camping season took over, and I totally lose track of everything and I came back to none, back to zero, I gained what I’ve lost and I am disappointed with the outcome.

This year, I told myself that I should be better, loose myself from the pressure that society was trying to lead me on. I will try to go back to the usual routine that I used to have, but this time, the goal is to go farther than 2 months, I want to be healthy and make it as a habbit.  I am going to change myself for the better, not because for the purpose of i wanted to get judged in a good way but because I want to feel better with myself, I want to walk comfortably without being drowned by the thought of other people’s words. if there is somebody who is going to define myself, that should be me, I am incharge of me, and I am responsible of my own decisions.

 

 

Last Letter From Your Lover (Part 2) |Book Review

IMG_5572“Letters from Juliet and The Notebook Mash up”.

This are exactly what you’ll feel if you read this book. For the second time Jojo Moyes played with my feelings again! The last two parts of the book are actually about the aftermath, how the life of a cheating wife continues, it is literally how it went. And then years ago, 4 decades have past, still the Love and Faithfulness is still there. I couldn’t contain myself from the fact that True Love exists since 1960.

Love is always worth the wait, no matter how old you’ll get, whether in sickness or in health, it will always find a way. It’s crazy how the author brought me from the 1960’s era to the generation i am in, i love the shifting of the story, i love how it has been done without making it feel strange and uncomfortable as a reader. Honestly, there might be some parts that i find boring but there is something about it that will make you curious of the situation that you’ll get the urge of finishing it.

This Book is a Must-read!!

Feel the Love, the True Love, from our Grandparents time until today.
