Know the number of your days!

Yeah, just reminding everyone.
Have a great day ahead! :D



I have been despicably busy with school recently (with my capping ceremony just around the corner) and found no time to read, write and to read some more. I have three titles on my wait list and am feeling a little too drained to produce something worth the time of the day. So my schedule pretty much consists of school, church, sleep on my way home, homework and more sleeping. Hardly have the freedom to jog early in the morning as I always had back in the summer. But albeit the always assiduous lifestyle I'm currently living, I have no doubts I'll still be able to enjoy my hobby in the weeks to come. So just in case, I'm filling up my notebook with a list of must reads for the next three months. So in no particular order...

1. Anna and The French Kiss
Stephanie Perkins
December 2, 2010

I'm not too thrilled because of the title but someone told me that it's a nice read and because I trust the person's taste, I'm gonna give it a go.

Genre: YA Contemporary, Romance, Culture, School, Hormonal

2. The Fine Art of Truth and Dare
Melissa Jensen
February 16, 2012
Plotline not that unusual but I'm willing to give it a try to see if the goodreads list is trustworthy. Yes, it involves French and YA again. Gosh, the hormones.

Genre: YA Contemporary, Romance, Culture, School, Hormonal

3. Graffiti Moon
Cath Crowley
February 14, 2012

 I'm gonna take a chance with this book. It has A+ reviews and everybody's saying the book synopsis is nothing compared to the beauty of this read. So that got me interested and now I'm really looking forward to reading this book.

Genre: Art, Romance, YA Contemporary

4. The Catastrophic History of You and Me
Jess Rohtenberg
February 21, 2012

I am now ready for a tear jerker. The plotline seems worth my time and I'm raising my expectations on this one. I'm not merely signing up for a fun read but for drama--the hardcore type. Bring it!

Genre: Drama, Romance, YA Contemporary, Death, Fantasy

5. Protecting Truth
Michelle Warren
Unreleased, 2012

Anticipating. Hopefully the 2nd installment of the Seraphina Parrish trilogy would be available in the next three months. I adored the first book. I'm a bit disappointed with the cover though >_<

Genre: Romance, YA Contemporary, Fantasy, Action

6. The Selection
Kiera Cass
April 24, 2012

Interesting plot. Yay, royalty :D

Genre: Romance, Science Fiction, Young Adult, Fantasy

7. The Storyteller
Antonia Michaelis
January 1, 2012

They had me at "a dark, haunting, contemporary story that is part mystery, part romance, and part melodrama." Seems interesting.

Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Fantasy, Romance, Contemporary

Book Review: The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer Smith

Title: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
Series: N/A
Author: Jennifer Smith
Genre: YA Fiction, Romance, Contemporary
My Rate: 1/5 a disappointment
Published: January 2, 2012

"Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?" 

Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's sitting in her row. 

A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more?
Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

CHARACTERS || Disappointed. They promised me an assumed ultra hot British boy named Oliver for goodness' sake! He failed to deliver Ever heard of a charming, sarcastic roll of an amputee (insert Augustus)?! Yeah people should quit with the Gary Stus and multiply the Augustus / Jace / Logan types! So fine, he wasn't that dull and boring but I EXPECTED SO MUCH MORE! As for the female, she seems okay (the typical female I guess) again not ooohsome as I imagined her to be.

WRITING || Prose. I'm not a big fan of prose and this made me even less of a not-a-big-fan.

OVERALL || Disappointed. That's what I am with the entirety of this book. I mean ANYONE would expect a promising (John Green style) tale with a title as intriguing as this. It sadly, did not even come close to meeting my expectations. For a supposedly very eventful 24-hr story, it was otherwise. It's not even about love at first sight anymore. The title "Secretly Bitter Teen with divorced parents (and a little airport love)" would be a much more suitable title for this. TSK TSK TSK. Some call it a plain ol' romance story, it really is. PLAIN. OLD. ROMANCE.
