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.

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.

★★★★★ – 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: The Natural History of Us (The Fine Art of Pretending #2)

I LOVED The Fine Art of Pretending so I was really excited about this.

Justin, our guy, appeared in the first book and a lot of people loved him (myself included) that Rachel decided to give him his own happy ending.

For me, this book will only appeal to certain types of readers. The plot lies heavily on romance and I only recommend it to people who are suckers for romances like me (haha).

His idea was still with me, because it was not a vapour sunshine could disperse, nor a sand-traced effigy storms could wash away; it was a name graven on a tablet, fated to last as long as the marble it inscribed.
