Review: Portia Moore’s If I Break Trilogy [BOOK]

I love reading novel sometimes, only after I’ve done with reading some ‘reality’ books because too much reading fictions would turn us into a bunch of people with unrealistic goal. Well, for example, you’re looking for somebody who’s perfect (handsome, romantic, and rich). Anyway, since I joined Goodreads’ book challenge, I have decided to read 100 books within a year. It’s one of my personal goal to be accomplished this year. Today’s post is all about Portia Moore’s If I Break trilogy. Gosh, I love all her writings because I find it’s not your usual 50 Shades of Grey.

Book: Rolf Dobelli – The Art of Thinking Clearly

It’s been hectic this month as school has started and I need to wake up early to make sure my kids don’t late for their school. I feel exhausted but I need to be positive all the time. Keeping myself motivated by telling myself that I can burn more calories. LOL! Sound lame but that’s how I need to support myself from being down. Anyway, today’s post is about a book that I have just finished reading. It’s a great book. Continue Reading

Books: My Favourite December 2015 Books

Fuh! It has been busy weeks as I need to have my work done before Christmas. I’m aware that I almost abandon this little abode. I find a little space for me to write about a few books that I read recently. I recently bought a few Malay novels after my dearie friends suggested me to read Malay books because my Malay is getting suck. In fact, I rarely have time to spend time watching Malay dramas nowadays as I’m pretty busy juggling between works, and studies. Sendiri cari penyakit.

Book: Last Resort (Grayton Series Book 1) – Jill Sanders

Here’s another book written by Jill Sanders which I’ve just finished reading this morning. LOL! I must say that it was an interesting book to read but I’d prefer Loving Lauren more because I loved the stubborn character a lot. Anyway, Last Resort still a nice chick lit novel to read as I found some ‘laughable’ parts. It’s an adult romance novel, and you can expect it’s like a ’50 Shades of Grey’ thingy. Readers will definitely enjoy this book. Continue Reading

Book: Loving Lauren by Jill Sanders

My Goodreads friend has recently recommends me to read a chick-lit book after she thought I’ve been reading too much ‘serious’ issues, and she found out that I’m still behind my target (Yeah, we do have reading challenge on Goodreads). So, I went to Smashwords to download some of the books. You can get the books for free, free e-book to be exact. Thanks, Sienna. I owe you a book now.  Continue Reading

Book: My Paper Heart by Magan Vernon

What would you do during your pastime or during rainy days? It is raining here now, and I have to postpone my plan to bring out my kids for shopping. If Plan A doesn’t work, it’s time to go for Plan B. Since it is raining cats and dogs, I guess sipping a cup of hot coffee while reading a nice book would be the best thing to do today. The only relaxation I could have since Mr. Hubby is on duty to babysit the kids. He surely knows that I have tons of things to do especially when I’m currently busy with my LR at the moment. Reading has been part of me ever since my Dad bought tons of Nancy Drew, and Sweet Valley High books for me.

Book: Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian by E L James

I was a bit tired today as I didn’t get enough of sleep last night as I was hooking up with E L James’ recently published book – Grey. The Grey Trilogy was a hit in Malaysia until it was banned due to its ‘too-much-sexism’ sentiments. However, clever people these days still can buy the digital books via online. So, I bought the recently published E L James’ Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian, with the expectation that this sequel would give the insights to Grey’s earlier life especially his story with Elana (BDSM, anyone?).

Book: Becca Fisher’s Heavenly Blessing (Amish Romance)
I’ve been reading a few novels nowadays, but they are all about faiths. Not intended to turn my blog with religious, anyway. This is going to be a short review about a book which I read a few days ago, and just finished reading it this afternoon. It’s a romance about an Amish woman, Abigail. She was against her father’s will for the arranged marriage, in which she has to help her parents with the family business after she got married. The quilt business wasn’t her passion, and she wanted to set herself free. So, she left her home. Then, she met with a man whose father is a Pastor. They went out, and then fell in love. bla bla bla. I won’t tell you the ending of this story. You have to find it out yourself.

Book: Twelve Steps To a Compassionate Life (Karen Armstrong)

I admit that I’m not a religious person but this book is de rigueur to instil compassion into our daily life. She believes that others will change if we treat them with compassion. The book is quite practical even though I found it’s either to be a little platitudes over some topics. Yet, Armstrong offers a very thoughtful, relevant, and inspiring message when we lack of compassion. She identifies the Golden Rule which running through all other major faiths, and point out that all religions value compassion. Continue Reading

Book: Satellite: The Satellite Trilogy, Part I

I was a little confused with the title itself. The first thing that popped out of my mind was the thing placed in orbit round the Earth collecting information. LOL! I’m not a fan of sci-fi or fantasy movie or novel but I find Lee Davidson’s The Satellite Trilogy, Part I, was amazing with a provoking storyline about Grant Bradley who died due to cancer. He has been chosen to become a Satellite whose job to watch over people experiencing tragedy in their life, and to help them getting back on track. The job of a Satellite is the equivalent to a guardian angel. This book is full of adventure as Grant struggles with his life as a Satellite.  Continue Reading
