In my Goodreads account, I set a goal to read 20 books in 2016, just to be safe😀because I know I can make more than that.  And I’m so happy to say that I’ve read 23 books.😀 Taps myself on shoulder *good job, good job* ;D

4th quarter – 6 books

Here’s the books I’ve finished reading for the last quarter of 2016.

  1. After You by Jojo Moyes

    Book 2 of “Me Before You” 😀

    Yes, after watching the movie “Me Before You”, I looked forward to reading this sequel. And grabe, I misses Will Traynor even more. Huhuhuafter-you

    It has been a year and months since Will died and a lot of thing happens. Louisa travelled around Europe as Will says, and she bought a flat in London using the money Will had left her, while Mr. and Mrs. Traynor got divorced months after going home from Dignitas.

    One night Louisa fell from the rooftop of her flat, a 4th floor high. People thought she did that on purpose, but it was an accident that even her family doesn’t believe. They thought that she is a suicidal girl, who can’t move on from Will.

    A surprise is waiting for her when she got back to her flat after recovering from the accident; Will’s daughter appeared on her front door. She’s a 16 year old problematic teenager whose looking for a family to accept her. Louisa will try her best to help Lily in meeting her grandparents and in changing her bad behavior. Louisa also joined a ‘moving on’ club, where they meet once a week to share how they cope with losing someone they love.

    Read the book, so you can join Louisa in moving on; in helping Will’s daughter; and in falling in love. AGAIN.

    I really can feel that there will be a 3rd book for this. 🙂

    Maybe Louisa in New York?? Please Jojo!

    Favorite line : “You don’t have to let that one thing be the thing that defines you.” – Will Traynor

    2. P.S I still love you by Jenny Han

    p-s-i-still-loveyouBook 2 of “To all the boys I loved before”

    Seems like, I’m into reading sequel books. Hahaha

    But anyway, this book is the continuation of the love story of Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky.

    When Josh finds out that everything is just a contract between Lara Jean and Peter, he confronted them at Lara Jean’s house. Everyone has heard about it, that makes the situation even worse.

    But, neither did Lara Jean know that she has fallen in love with Peter. That she likes him taking her to school and back to her house, she likes it when Peter buys her donuts and they will eat together during lunch. Yes, he still loves Peter, because when she writes the letter to say goodbye to that feeling, it never left her heart. It stays there and it blossom because they spend more time with each other more.

    During New Years Eve, Lara Jean met Peter at his house, to give him the letter she wrote saying that she still love him. However, facing Peter gives her chills and she was chickened to hand him the letter, so she crumpled it and keep it in her pocket. Peter notices her hand not leaving her pocket, so he tried to check what it is. He won in the battle and was able to grab the letter, he read it silently and then there, everything is back. Peter likes her. No. Love her, but he’s not telling her directly unless he is so sure about his feeling.

    Both will try to keep the relationship stable, as they face a lot of challenges like the hot tub video of them kissing passionately, Genevieve – Peter’s ex-girlfriend and Lara Jean’s ex-best friend and John –their childhood friend; one of the recipients of Lara Jean’s letter, who liked her during 8th grade and likes her till now.

    Kilig much ako sa couple na ito. 🙂 hahaha

MY GOOD READS 2015

My Good Reads 2015

I love books. ❤

When 2015 started, I’ve been recording all the books I’ve read. So far I have read 23 books. Onti noh? 😀 hehehe. I’m not a fast reader tho. 🙂 Ok, here’s my list and short impression about the book.

1. Love Rosie by Cecelia Ahern

download (2)

I love Alex and Rosie 🙂 When I started reading this book, I get easily hooked because of the concept. Writing letters to each other really catches a woman’s heart, even if it’s old school. (Old school ako eh.)

Rosie is in love with her best friend, but did not mind telling him bc she thinks Adam like this other girl from their school, neither did she know that Adam is also in love with her.

The whole story is complete with laughter, sadness, hurt, joy, love, fulfillment of dreams and kilig.

So, if you want a complete pack of emotion, then this could be the best book to read, but embraces yourself because this could make you cry. Yes, I cried. 😦 the movie is also nice.

Realization: If you love someone and you feel that s/he is the one, don’t let go of that person. Tell him/her what you feel before it’s too late bc if you will keep it to yourself; you are wasting the time that supposed to be spent with the one you love.
