Moshi mosh! πŸ™‹

It’s been awhile I haven’t updated about my book reviews. It’s not that I have been stop reading books. That would never happen. Haha. Book is my drug, remember?

Today I am glad to share with you my favourite series ‘Hush Hush Saga’. Downloaded the ebooks since what… two years back? But never got times to read it. Then I saw BBW made an offer for the series in Seremban. I asked my friend, Fara to buy them for me. Unfortunately, they only have three books. The Saga consists of four books altogether. Hah.. lucky was always with me. I found the second book – Crescendo at Popular book fair. Yeay! πŸ‘―

You must be wondering what are those book about? Okay, let me copy the synopsis from Goodreads. This is only synopsis from Hush Hush (Book 1).

Romance was not part of Nora Grey’s plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

Yay or nay? I’ll go for Yay!!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

As usual, I would imagined who are perfect for the role in the book. I hope I’m not the only one who’d doing this. Fangirl. πŸ˜„ Nora Grey, is the main character in this book. All the while reading the books, I only imagined this girl. Miranda Cossgrove. She is really Nora Grey!

Nora Grey’s appearance :
Nora describes herself as a β€œsmokey-eyed brunette with volumes of curly hair that holds its own against even the best flatiron”. She is also described frequently as a redhead, giving the idea that her hair must be reddish-brown. She is 6 inches shorter than Patch, who is 6’2″, making her about 5’8″.She is also described as having long, β€œbar stool” legs. She is described to have “Cold, pale gray eyes.” and a “Killer curvy mouth.” According to a special chapter in Patch’s point of view found in special editions of Silence Nora has “an aristocratic nose”, and “a few freckles she probably hated”.

See… so Miranda! 😊

Now, here’s Patch Cipriano. The fallen angel. Full of darkness behind his past. Not until he met Nora. I choose Tyler Blackburn to play this role. Perhaps his role in Ravenswood (supernatural drama) drag me to picture him as Patch. Lol 😜

Patch’s appearance:
Patch is described as a β€œdark-Levi’s, dark-Henley, dark boots kind of guy who smells of spice, fresh cut grass and leather”. He is described to have black hair, deep black eyes that “take in everything and give back nothing”, a rugged skin tone (like a Spaniard) and is six-foot-two. According to Nora, he has sharp, almost Italian features. It is also stated by many people that he looks and can be very intimidating and scary.

Hah! Very Tyler! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

How do the Fallen Angel and a sixteen years old girl got connected?

Nora is a descendent of the Nephilim Chauncey Langeais, who was Patch’s nephilim vessel. In Hush Hush, in order to become human Patch would have had to kill his Nephilim vessel by killing a female descendent of his-which was Nora. He planned on allowing her to die until they fell in love with each other. And at the end of Hush Hush, when Nora sacrificed herself to kill Chauncey and save Patch, he rejected his only offer to become human. From then on throughout the series he does his best to keep her safe.

Did I give you some pictures of this story? Are you tempting enough to read the Hush Hush Saga? If you are into young adult and supernatural, then these books are your must read. I like them!

Stickers

Hola friends and readers…

At this age, I’m still collecting stickers. Fancy stickers, precisely. Lol! 😝 Sometimes, I would swap with my pen pals. And sometimes, I would deco my things with stickers. This is one of the example…

2015/01/img_4436.png

No need to buy expensive handphone casing. Just paste the stickers on it. Amani helped me to choose which stickers to put on it. So you can see that was her choices. All about the sweet stuff. πŸ˜…πŸ­πŸ¬πŸ«πŸ¦

2015/01/img_4441-2.png

I also spotted some ‘sweets’ 🍬🍬🍬 were paste on the drawer. I’m not sure what kind of arts were that. At once she told me she had bought sweets for me. And then she took one sticker from that line and gave it to me. Before I took it, she told me “Jap ah… bayar lok.” (Wait aa… must pay first.) 😁 I think she was mimicking me. πŸ˜…

Little Crafter

Happy Weekend! πŸ˜„

Last week I think I had really did some “de-stress” activity. Which was… shopping!!! πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

2015/01/img_4424.png

No new blouse and shoes?? Nah… Not that kind of shopping. Hehe. I’ve been crazy looking at those beads, paper punches, fancy tapes, stickers and last but not least the beads compartment. I’m not sure what had got into me that day, so I just grab grab grab those stuff without regret. Yeah!!

2015/01/img_4367.jpg

I was so fascinated with the beads and couldn’t wait to make new bracelets from them. Just I was about to start making it, there come my ‘assistant’ offering her help to make her own bracelet. πŸ˜… OK, little crafter. Make some room for her. 😜

Bedtime Stories

Hello friends and readers… 😘

2015/01/img_4286.png

Amani really enjoyed the moment when her two favourite cousins: Yaya & Adam, stayed at our house. She would stayed up late at night, playing with her cousins. I don’t mind sometimes because she loves her company around her age. One of her favourite activity is reading a book to both of them. Eventhough she doesn’t know how to read, she would tried creating her own story based on the pictures from the book. And the two of them would giggles at her some unknown words. Lol πŸ˜† It made us laughed too when we heard Amani telling a bedtime stories to Yaya and Adam. πŸ˜„

I can see that she loves book. Everytime before going to bed she would bring her own book and asked me to read to her. I think she’s copying me, my habit before going to sleep – reading a few chapters. It is my kind of lullaby. ☺️

Temptation #…. (I lost count. Hihi): Durian

Hiya! πŸ™‹

I am not really a durian fan. I would only ate one or two pieces of durians and that’s it. But last week, suddenly I craved for Durian. Muhehehe.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9f4/6512153/files/2015/01/img_4396.png

Went to the Kenyalang Park and saw this uncle with his mother selling durians. RM6 for one durian. The price is still reasonable lah, since he offered to open the durians and took only the good one. All in all he opened about six durians but we only paid for the price of three durians. Still cheap, right?

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9f4/6512153/files/2015/01/img_4342.png

Amani keep on telling me “Durian!” “Durian!” but she refused to try eating it. I guessed she dislike the strong odour. Well, the durians taste so good. Enough to shut up the sound of my cravingness that day. Hehe. πŸ˜†

What every girl wants

Hello everyone. Are you still in a new year mood?

Sometimes I still feel like I’m still left within the year of 2014. πŸ˜…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9f4/6512153/files/2015/01/img_4390.jpg

At Speedy, Summer Mall. Amani was attracted to the showcase wall. She didn’t realised that I was snapping her while admiring the toys insides. Looking at her, I guessed this must be how I looked like back at this age. Mesmerised by the beauty of toys. 😁

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/9f4/6512153/files/2015/01/img_4391.png

And just like what every mommy would do, they will shooing their child to move away from the distraction. Only that day, I let Amani took her time long enough to look at the showcases. What could be in her mind? I bet she was dreaming one of the toys would be hers one day. Or, she must have pictured herself playing around with those toys with her friends….

I know baby, just like you… this is what I used to dream on…. 😊 This is what every girl wants…
