Book reviews: Love letters to the dead by Ava Dellaira

'The Universe is bigger than anything that can fit into your mind' - May

Laurel was given an assignment by her English teacher on her first day of class. The assignment of writing a letter to a dead person. But, she never turned it up, not until last day of school.

She wrote letters to Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Judy Garland, Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse and several others which has passed at young age just as May did.

She wrote about her life, new friends, love life and mainly about how the death of her sister, May affected her.

On the night that May died, was after movie night. They went to their usual spot, where the old train tracks cross over the river.  They were sitting in the middle of the bridge, when Laurel said something that she felt never should have been said. May then stood up and started to cross back to land on the metal edge of the track, like a tightrope, and within moments, after she turn her back to look at May, and as their eyes met, her body sailed over the darkness below her.

Book reviews: Nightfall by Jake Halpern & Peter Kujawinski

“Stop. This is not useful. Pull yourself together.”

Imagine yourself living in a place for 14 years of days without nightfall, and as the sun began to set, you will have to pack and leave. 

Why do you need to pack? 

Why do you need to leave?

For people in Bliss, since their ancestors founds the island, they had been doing just that, and no one ever really questions the motive behind the traditions that had been practiced for years.

As the people awaits for the furrier boat to take them to Desert Island, the place where they will spent the next fourteen years of their life, they were handed letters from the Okrana, letters with instructions, as how to arrange the furniture in their home, what and where to hang on the wall, and how many plates needed to be set on the dining table. Marin and her twin brother, Kana had been preparing just for that, as the darkness slowly crept into town.

And the moment the furrier boats set sails in the island, they found out that a boy had been missing. He was a close friend of the twin, and the twins could be the only two that know where he was. And the two decided to embark on a quick quest to find him while the others waiting to board the ship. They found Line, the boy, of course, but they had taken a minute too late to the harbor, and they were left behind by their families and neighbors.

They discovered the secret about Bliss, and later, about Kana. They also found out the real reason why they needed to leave the place. During the fourteen years of ‘days’, humans inhabited the place, but as nightfall, the hibernating monsters began to wake and dominate the island. Since the start, they had set rules, displayed on the statues placed around town, but Marin, Kana and Line had broken them by failing to leave the place with the others.  They were hunted by the monsters, the rightful owners of the place, as they search for a way out from there.

Book Reviews: Fallen by Lauren Kate

It’s been awhile since I read a book, furthermore to add on my book review’ collection. But these inspired me to read the book after I saw it.

Luce has been haunted by dark shadows all through her life. The one that no others can lay eyes on except for her.

No one, including her parents believes her when she let them know about the shadow’s existence. She was thought to have psychiatric illness because of it and the last time that she tried to confess about her dark secret to anyone, had caused the life of that person, and people has been blaming her for his death.

Her parents decided to transfer her to a new school after the incident and there she met with a mysterious guy, and for some inexplicable reason, she experienced a strong connection to him the moment she laid her eyes on him, even though he was indifferent to her.

Daniel. He was an enigmatic guy. He was a fallen angel, who was cursed to have eternal life, but never truly has true love as his love one was cursed to die again, and again but never live through adolescence.

But for some reason, something was different in this lifetime, and there seem to be a loophole in the curse.

Luce found disclosure in her new school and bit by bit the truth was revealed to her. She found out about her special connection with Daniel, but she was yet to discover the whole truth about her life. 


The story mainly Daniel and Luce's love, and with the flip of each page, we were revealed with new discoveries about the story behind their love and it's curse.

 It's been awhile since I read something about magical creatures/ angels/demons as my favourite genre has changed over time and I'm more into non-fiction now. 

But, highly recommended to add this to your wishlists if you haven't done so. Why you might asks, well..

Jelly Belly.


I am getting pudgy.
I don't think I ever been this plump before in my life.

Thinking back, my weight had been consistent for two years. I never trouble myself to go shopping, as my old clothes always fit me fine and I'm not the shopaholic kind. But, for the past few days, I feels that I might need to get hold on new gears, and upgrade my attires to bigger size.

Gosh! I am getting F.A.T.
During HOship, I was like someone with hyperthyroidism. I ate a lot, but I never gained weight. It must had been attributed by the stress and hardships at that time. But, now that, that phase of life was over, and I'm enjoying life more with proper lunch time in between work. The fat cells decided to build a camp on me and my jelly belly began to shows.

I need to get active!
I need to burn some fat!

But, I'm still considering what's the next step that I should take.

It’s been awhile since my last post isn’t it. How are you doing?

You won’t mind reading me rambling after all this while bah kan.

I started this blog 5 years ago, and in my first post ever for this blog on the 10th of Feb, 2012, I wrote about having to take different kind of road which may bring different outcome in life. And I believe I had taken the full of obstacles road, and it had yet to come to an end.

I had completed a total of 7 years of study + training. And all those years has never been easy. There never been a day past without me thinking/blaming/ regretting the decision made 7 years earlier, but with much perseverance, we managed to go through the obstacles and be what we are today.

I’m not good with recalling events, but lots had happened.
And I would like to thanks to each and every one of you that took part in each chapters of my life. 

And I believe it’s time to move on now and continue to create new chapters in life. I may or may not write in this blog again. But I wishes everyone a good life and good luck in your life journey ahead. Hope that you get the happy ending that you wishes for in life.
