I have always imagined that paradise would be a kind of library.

Not all books are written equal. Some are meant to be greater than others. The hardest part is figuring out which one is which.

Rating Guide

People don’t choose books. Books choose people.

What might seem great for you might not be the same for others. And what might seem terrible for some, might just be the right one for you.

Rating guide:

★★★★★ – One word. PERFECT.
★★★★☆ –  Lacking just a tiny bit of something.
★★★☆☆ – Good but not great.
★★☆☆☆ – Disappointing.
★☆☆☆☆ – Terrible.

Warning!

Everything in this blog are my opinions.

I rate books based on feeling. A book could have the greatest plot and the best writing but if it will not give me that certain feeling while reading it, I might not like it. Please be warned.

Poetry Friday: Duet of Mismatched Hearts

Happy Friday, Lovelies!

In celebration of Valentines Day, I thought I would post something a little bit different. So I gathered all my courage and decided to post my own.

A little warning, though. I’m not that good. I wrote this one years ago and I’m not sure if I’m better now than I was back then. Haha. This is the longest poem I’ve ever written and it’s in dual POV — that of a boy and a girl.

Review: Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately

This is not my cup of tea.

I love poetry and I’m definitely obsessed with music but this didn’t work for me.

Normally, I would finish a poetry book in one sitting or in a few days when I’m busy but this one took me TEN days. Every time I try to pick it up, I end up reading a few poems and putting it back down. More often than not, it made me really sleepy.

I expected the tracks to convey the feelings of each poem but sadly, most of them did not. I’m not saying the songs were not great. In fact, some of them were good. But do I want to listen to rap or club music along with reading poetry? No.

On Books

Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.

– John Green

Favorite Quotes

I don’t think it’s possible to put a timeline to love. Once it’s there, it’s like there’s never been anything else.

Where did all those feelings go? People spend their whole lives looking for love. Poems and songs and entire novels are written about it. But how can you trust something that can end as suddenly as it begins?
