Review: Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav

Lang Leav is not for me.

I read my first Lang Leav book, Love & Misadventure, when I was broken-hearted (ha ha) and I loved every bit of it. But looking back, I’m not even sure if I would still think the same way if I read it again. My standard for poetry has changed and Lang Leav is not enough for me anymore.

I tried to give it a chance. I really did. I tried to feel the emotions that the poems were supposed to convey. But I just couldn’t do it.

Review: The King of FU by Benjamin Davis

If I were to describe this book in two words, I would say:

entertaining and honest.

If you want to write a memoir that is not boring, this is how you do it.

To be honest, I don’t even know how to properly describe this book. I haven’t read anything like it. I wouldn’t really say it’s poetry but it is written like a poem. The kind of poetry that annoys me the most are those that attempt to sound like poetry but are actually just sentences separated into lines.

But interestingly, it works for this book. Maybe it’s less about the format but more on how it was written. Benjamin has a way with words that makes it feel natural.

Unboxing: October 2018 Owlcrate

Hello everyone!

Okay, I know it is already November and this is a month late but hey, better late than never, right?

So, I ordered my first ever Owlcrate box. I was having second thoughts on subscribing because although I think it’s good, the shipping fee is expensive. But when I saw the hint that it will contain not just one but TWO books, I gave in. Especially when I already read an advanced copy of one of the books — which I absolutely loved — so I was planning on buying it anyway.

Music Mondays: La vie en rose by Michael Bublé feat. Cécile McLorin Salvant

Michael Bublé’s latest album is out now! There was a rumor that he is retiring but I’m glad he clarified that he isn’t yet. I really like his songs and covers, it relaxes me.

The song I am choosing this week is La vie en rose, which I’m sure many of us are familiar with. This version is a duet with Cécile McLorin Salvant. I personally love the French parts.

Review: 180 Seconds by Jessica Park

This book surprised me in so many ways.

I actually chose to read this because I wanted something fluffy. What I got was something totally different.

If you’re planning on reading this book, you absolutely need one thing: tissues.

No kidding.

Remember those viral videos on Facebook that make you cry? This book is like those videos but in written form. And only the hardest of hearts will be able to hold back their tears.

Music Mondays: Cool Cat by Queen

I just saw Bohemian Rhapsody last Friday! I was excited to watch it but movies are shown a little late in where I live, so, yeah…

I absolutely loved the movie so this week, I am choosing a Queen song called Cool Cat. I’m not sure if I should call this song underrated but I think it is underrated compared to other Queen songs. I love it because Freddie’s falsetto just sounds heavenly.
