Lullabies by Lang Leav


Lullabies is the second book from author Lang Leav. Like her first book Love & Misadventure, Lullabies is about heartbreak, life, and everything in between. I loved this book as much as I loved the first one, so I went on a tweet spree again of the parts I loved. Because, isn't it amazing how many things are said with only a few words?

In this post are my favorite excerpts from Lang Leav's second masterpiece. Read on for more.

I Wrote This For You by pleasefindthis

So this has been a "long overdue" post, because I promised to blog about the book I was currently reading several months ago. I know how cliché it may sound, but in this post, I mentioned that I will be posting about IWTFY (it's I Wrote This For You, and not I Want To F*** You, you pervert. LOL), but it did not happen, so I'm making up for it through this post. Tee hee. Let's get to my favorites!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I read this gem immediately after reading Eleanor& Park because that book got me hanging, wanting for more. So instead of mooching around all day, I decided to immediately read another Rainbow Rowell book. I instantly started reading the next highest-rated and hyped about a book by the same author. True enough, I never regretted the second I started reading the first few lines...

Warning: spoilers ahead...

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Two misfits.

One extraordinary love.

Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.
Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. (Goodreads)
This is another overdue post because I have read this book last June, but I can still remember the bittersweet story Rainbow Rowell has ever told...

Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav

Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav

It was making a buzz last year, with people posting about this on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And oh, even Tumblr! I told myself I wouldn't get on the bandwagon but eventually, I did. I hopped in last January. I was bored, looking for something to do for a few hours of waiting for the boyfriend. So I waited at the condo's clubhouse, opened my iPod and started reading this treasure...

Movie Marathon | Romeo + Juliet (1996)

Romeo + Juliet

The past few weeks, I’ve been hooked with William Shakespeare’s works, and what a coincidence-I've had the movie “Romeo+Juliet (1996)” last year, but I haven’t watched it yet, so I decided to watch it the other day. Photos below are screencaps of some of my favorite scenes from the movie.

Excerpts from Nicholas Sparks' "The Notebook"


I've loved Nicholas Sparks' novels, but of all those 18 books (if I'm not mistaken), "The Notebook" tops my list. I've loved the movie first, but then when I read the book, damn. I loved the book more than I've loved the movie itself. Read it and you'll know why. Here's a few excerpts from one of Nicholas Sparks' treasures....

When should you break up?by: Bo Sanchez

Boyfriends who you know are not “the one.”Boyfriends who won’t marry you.Boyfriends who simply are not good for you.I want to help those who are stuck in dead-end relationships and who have jerks for boyfriends because that’s what they think they deserve.How do you know if you have a bad relationship?Here’s my list… from the most obvious to the least obvious.1. If you find out he’s married.2. If you find out he’s an alcoholic, drug addict or a compulsive gambler.3. If you find out he’s an incurable playboy.4. If you find out he’s got another girlfriend.5. If you find out he’s got a boyfriend. (This happens.)6. If you find out he’s got an uncontrollable temper or becomes violent or verbally abusive.7. If you find out he’s a chronic liar, a cheater or has a weak conscience.8. If he can’t hold a job for more than a few weeks or months.9. If he borrows money from you constantly and doesn’t pay.10. If you argue with him more than you talk.11. If you find out you have a few shared values.12. If you don’t trust him.13. If you feel jealous and anxious when he’s not around.14. If you’re six months into a quasi-relationship and he doesn’t even want to have an exclusive relationship with you.15. If you’ve been in an exclusive relationship for many years and he doesn’t want to propose – and his reasons for not doing so are so flimsy (example: “ My mother is still alive”)

Movie Marathon | A Walk to Remember



Last night, I was finding ways to motivate myself to study more, since my goal is to get high grades for a subject just to be exempted for the finals. I thought it would be easy since I am interested with the subject, but then again, procrastination's been visiting me a lot lately, ever since I finished my OJT. That's why I came up with the idea of watching the movie, A Walk to Remember.

Books

And this is how I've been spending my days--BOOKS.
I’ve been spending a lot of my time at the office by reading. What do you expect from sitting in the same chair all day wondering what to do. What else to do since I’ve done all my task for the day.
I’ve read Nicholas Sparks’ A Walk to Remember and The Notebook, and just this morning, I started re-reading Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse. I still got a week more at the office and I’m running out of novels to read. Time to go book hunting, I guess.
