A "Warcross" novel placed on a table





War is coming, watch your step.
A Hunter is waiting for your final slip.
Ready to take over, her gun at the hip.

Crossing the worlds, like a piece of cake.
Rows of codes, she wrote without a shake.
Or play a game, A hacker only can fake.
Sorry, Dear. Some rules we can't break. 
Some pawns never meant for a move to take.

                           Hunter
                           Hacker
                           Player
                           Pawn
                              

Hello, everyone. Warcross was my first book in 2019. Wish me luck I want to finish 90 books this year and I guess I am doing ok so far. ( update: I wrote this review in the middle of my finalsπŸ˜“πŸ˜“)


Review on " warcross " book one of warcross series by Marie Lu. 


            

  • Girl power is all over the book. Not only in the physical form but also mentally and emotionally. It's so rare to see a book where the heroine won't fall to her knees whenever she sees the one she loves, which bring me to the part I love the most. 

warcross is a fictional book in a non-fiction way
  • The main character " Emika Chen " was a bounty hunter, hacker and a warcross player but also you could see her in yourself or in a friend or a relative. When she falls in love, she loves with her brain before her heart. She loves with her eyes wide open. This love story is a real one and It's not all sugar candy and ponies.

Love can be an excellent motive. Just be sure to use it wisely 
  • When you love someone you want to give him the whole world. And that what exactly happened with Emika. That gorgeous hacker fell in love with the one she's been hacking and she would have done anything for him..anything but evil. But will Emika stand still in front of Hideo's gaze and confront him? Or will she weaken and fell in love unconditionally?

How much would you give for an imaginary illusion? And how fast would you give it up if you knew it's filled with devious plans?
  • Warcross is a virtual reality Game, took place in a world of high technology and intelligence, but sometimes illusions are so realistic that you start to doubt your reality. Warcross, which started only as a game became a lifestyle. 

How far would you go to end evil?
  • If you have the means to end evil, would you do it? Sure! If those means includes being evil as well but not as much as you are going to stop, Does that make you a better person? Less bad? the same? Or even worse? Can you play God? Well, that's one hell of a paradox.

You Can't Play God 
  • Can you? Well, Hideo ( book hero) though he could. He wanted to play a game only God can master. A game of recompense and punishment. But think about it for a minute. If you can only make people do the right thing, how far would you go before everything goes dark?
          And What's your version of right? 


Do you agree with me? No? Yes?
Anyway, I think you should read Warcross by MarieLu

Thanks for reading. I know some of you might not understand my reviews or even the writing style. My book reviews are a collection of thoughts I get through the book. I try to write them down and organise them in a way that might interest some to actually read the book. It's not your typical book review, I know😎

A man and a woman smiling



How much would you go for the hope of true love | A review on " The choice " by Nicolas Sparks  



Truth is told once in a while.
How far can you go for true love, not a trial?
Every option is hard, but shall you make a pile

Can destroy of choices not save.
Happiness is for those who feel brave.
Or take a hard choice with no shelter or cave.
It breaks souls but mine are free to share.
Choices are taken in moments of despair.
Every blink of an eye I choose her.

Even if she doesn't want to be chosen.
Even if she's on a hospital bed, broken.
I choose a memory. A vow..never been spoken.



A man sitting in front of a sick woman on a hospital bed


Merry Christmas, everyone!
Yep, that's me. A bookaholic senior dentist who just finished " The Choice "  and wanted to write something about it. So, let's begin.



  • Our choices aren't ours.

Nope, not yours. You try to tell yourself so. That you made it with your own free will. But, you didn't. The choices you made is based on time, circumstances, experience, failures and sadly, Fear. Even if we chose the people we love. A friend to spend time with, a best friend or a lover. That choice is based upon emotion. An emotion that was raised within you in that person's presence. But!


Can you control your emotions?! Cause if you can, then you can control your choices.

" If Gabby never felt attracted to Travis, if that split second never happened, would she choose Travis, even if logic says No? " 


  • The choices we make. 
The good of them and the bad, aren't about the concept itself of choosing, it's all about who you choose or who you make a choice for or who you will be after making that choice?


  • How much would you go for the hope of true love?

"I would go to the end of the world".
Yeah! I bet that was your first thought. 

"Nowhere, there's nothing called true love"
Aaaaannnd, That was your second one.


We live in a mixed world, between those who believe in love and bubbles of joy ( Facebook people) and those who went through an unsuccessful love experience and think life can't give him/her any more good. 
And there's you. Waiting for love without knowing if it might actually come or not. You just have a weird feeling, that maybe one day you gonna be a Facebook guy or a Facebook girl.


So, my dear reader. How much you would go for true love. If you really wanna know. I guess you should read the choice by Nicolas Sparks 


A romance novel with thrilling points and turns that makes it perfect.


" The best choice  is to never let go of what you believe "


Thank you so much for reading my review, I hope you like it. I know my reviews are a little bit different, but books aren't just a bunch of papers for me. They are my life and with every book I read. 
A new life begins!

A book by John Green and a cup of coffee

The parasite believes itself to be the host | Review on " Turtles all the way down "




 The stars are clear.The weather is cold.
 Us together even after getting old.
 Running in circles. Spirals, drawn bold.
 Thoughts within me, A suffocating fold.
 Lying deep. " Do it, NOW " I was told.
 Either real or not. I am good as gold.
 Shiny sheet. Soft. But yet sold.


 And here he came, my prince charming.
 Lying under the stars. Watching  and yarning,
 Love. Life. We are just pretending.

 To be strong, live and see the stars  disappear.
 Hiding behind the clouds in shyness and  fear.
 Early rays of lights not shall tear.

 With force the power of time or a light  year.
 Along the way.look up the stars and see.
 Yet all the stars you saw, aren't ever here.

 Dancing lights, travelling a light year. 
 Orbits around, like a circle or a wheel.
 With every end, there's a start. like a loop,Dear
 Nothing bad, Just life.not too safe nor  severe.


Life is a loop of in between.


Hello, everyone welcomes back to my new book review or shall I say a new Journey. 


A book review with a little poetic touch


Recently l read " Turtles all the way down " by John Green and that's what I got from my latest book adventure :

Shall we begin? GIF  from GOT

  • The parasite believes itself to be the host. An invasive thought can kill it's a carrier. Just think of it this way. A thought. An idea. An inception. Something starts within you, A drop of ink in a glass of water. You think it's small and useless, but quickly it spread and invade. You can't undo a thought, can you? You can't control it. It becomes a parasite swimming and luring within you and you are the host.    


  • And our main character here ( Aza) is in a loop of thoughts. She can't control them or stop them and that's her problem. Cause somethings in life aren't meant to end and our pain is one of them. We have to feel the pain, feel the drops of sweat rolling on our forehead. That's life. It's all about the feelings. The bad ones more than the good, I am afraid.


  • Am I real? What makes me real? If I don't have control over me, my thoughts, my life then what makes me a real person, not just a fictional character in someone's fiction novel? Well, to answer that question you really gotta read the book. Like man, that's the main idea of the bookπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I believe that No, you got no control over anything, but I also believe that a good thing. Life is meant to be uncontrollable, unpredictable and unlimited.  Those who thought can control it are either dead or are going to be...VERY SOON.


"Dubito,  ergo cogito, ergo sum" Descarte.


  • It means you doubt, you think, you are...or something with the same meaning πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, either way, he meant that your thoughts don't define you, you are not your thoughts. You are your actions that are based on thoughts and doubt. 


You are not just a thought...you are a doubt lead to it and an action that was made from it.


  • No one ever says goodbye unless they want to see you again. Yep, that's right. No one cares to say goodbye unless he cares about you and that's why goodbyes aren't bad. Goodbyes aren't about endings, it's about just another kind of beginnings.

That's all. The end of this Journey. See you soon with a new book and a new life lesson.

Book review on " PS. I still love you " by Jenny Han. 



Partially in love. Partially maintained. 
So many emotions lost and gained.

I thought it was easy to fall in love.

Slightly like a swim, for a lazy dove.
Tightly bonded, like bricks high above.
It seemed that easy, yet it was that tough.
Like a rope. Letting go cause lesser pain.
Love is magical, yet partially insane.


Living all our lives desperately wanna gain.
Old love, new one even both in a campaign. 
Very hard to tell. Am I bad or just a plain,
Eager teen. Wanna fall in love again.


You are the one? for me? I am not sure.
Or am I even? Your only one and cure?
Unmaintained love, but love, for sure.







Hello again, everyone. Welcome to a new book review or shall I say life journey.

Cause books are my life, with every book comes a whole new journey, and here's my latest one.


  • I thought  letting go was all about cheaters and bad romance, I thought it was a big ugly bubble of tears over a boy,  but man! I was dead wrong. Letting go is like a ship. It takes time, patience, efficiency and one hell of a sailor to sail in an angry sea. Let alone that sailor is just a seventeen-year-old teen.


  • Letting go was never about a person, it's always about a concept. An idea. A belief. An attraction. An obsession. It's all about us. 

" when we let go, we not only letting go of a person, we let go the concept that made us with that person...we let go of a part of us as well"


  • We let go of the anger, hate, hurt and despair, it ain't about a boyfriend/girlfriend. It's all about us.


jenny-han-book-quote-jpeg


  • You know that feeling when you hate something you used to love so much, just from the continuity and repetition of it. From your first day to your last you hear the word love on daily basis. Like EVERYWHERE. We want so much to feel loved and cherished. The sole purpose of our lives is finding that amazing soulmate that is born just to complete us.



"We become so overwhelmed with the concept of love before even knowing what it really is" 






Well, Imagine all of that happened to a seventeen-year-old Asian Petite Lara Jean.

Or you can spare the imagination part and go read the book😍😍

Is it what love to you, Mother?

Lying in silence, watching me shutter.
Eager to cry, but never bother.
To say no, to walk away, to save us all together.

Yet you thought, you can make,
Old demons smile,zombie's heart shake.
Uninvited,fear get to you with no break.

Getting high, step by step, partake.
Outloud like a Porsche with no brake.

Review on " I let you go " by Clare Mackintosh. 


As always I never saw a book as a way of entertainment or something useful or educational. In fact, it was always quite the opposite. 

Books are Journeys,  with every book there's new discoveries, new dimensions and new life.

And here's my latest adventure in points:


  • Monsters are never born...they are created, cause we all are born the same.  This book won't tell you how to create one. It tells you how it feels to live with one.      


  •   JUSTICE. It's supposed to be easy, live in peace. But what I really got from this book is reality has so many different shades of grey and that there's a very different yet thin line between the truth and the reality. ( you may spend your whole life believing in something not even real ).



Quite a deep book review, ha??? Wait for itπŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‹




  •  Men are superheroes or at least that what we see, powerful heroes with tons of muscles. For a lot of people  (unfortunately most), Insecurity is a womanly thing like they are born to fear and cope with it. What nearly kills you is that most women feel insecure, they are raised to believe that fear is a normal thing, that fear is good. Fear is safety. So our tears become our first reaction.


  With tears, we fight

         But No.

  •  Most of those we fear, fear us too. But the game is all about the appearances... the myth of control. So, fear all you want. The only way out is to fight.


  • Does fear result in submission or Submission is a result of fear? If you have the physical power and the will to do something, why do you choose to cry when you can scream? Choose to beg when you can bite? Stay when you can run? 



         

I hope I did a good job reviewing the book, and if you want to know the answers to all those questions, I guess you get " I let you go " by Clare Mackintosh. Check her website here😍

Thanks, for reading.

Why do we always fail at commitments?

Pen up, pen down.
Feeling myself,
looking like a clown.
Done nothing so far,
but never deserve a frown.
Com'on do it,
What are you waiting for?
Start now,
Got no time to ignore.
Stop feeling weak,
It ain't gonna get you to shore.
But I can't stop that bad feeling,
Motivation off, can't start dealing.




I hate the universe.

No, Actually the universe hates me, then I hated him back. Com'on!! don't look at me that way I am a sweet young lady with just a tiny issue.

RESPONSIBILITY

Ok, so it's not that tiny but com'on guys it's beyond me and I can't control it. Let's start from when it all begins.

Yesterday was my midterm test, so I should have studied the day before, but apparently the word "should" doesn't belong to my dictionary. I don't know what happened. I knew I had a test, that I must study, I knew this was important. I just lost motivation. I lied back for about 7 hours doing literally
NOTHING!!!.

I just couldn't make myself motivated enough to study, so right now writing this makes me wish that I am one of those kids who might just pee in their pants from fear of exams.

But I am not.

Before judging me I know, I know I am the one to blame. But I am not lazy nor a playful person or I wouldn't spend like an hour writing the article you currently reading but sometimes I feel like I lost the fire in me.
The one that keeps me forward, the boiling will that makes me want to go through fire.
The motivation.

The purpose to do something great.  Sometimes all I want is to eat and lie back and that sucks:(

But what's next? Is that how my life gonna end? Is that why I am here ? Cause now I am worthless. I am being controlled by fear and dispair.


I am filled with rubbish, complete utter bullsh**

A photo of black ink


Some people try to get my hopes up, others try to sugarcoat the truth, but believe it or not no one can help you but you.

But here I am writing all those amazing motivational words, while still lying on my back with zero regrets.


Yep I am like a messy incoherent ink line in a wide white sheet. 



And along the way, I would keep cussing and turning into a small ball of negativity and indifference.






So, What's next?
Nothing... Cause it's not gonna end.

We are not gonna stop being ugly, rubbish , incomplete and lazy.

We are not gonna stop blaming ourselves for every small ugly detail.

We are not gonna stop falling, failing and crawling.

But we are damn sure stop wishing for perfection.  



  This is who we are. We are meant be.  flawed. It's just being human.



And it's perfectly normal, cause you, my dear friend is perfect in an ugly imperfect way. With every little ugly detail, flaw, ignorence and incoherence come the bigger picture.


Romanesque Architecture :- Abbey Church of the Trinity (11th century) By Ali Khaled 

Look closely. Zoom in. What do you see? 

Anyway, it's past midnight now. So, I think a couple of hours of study is better than nothing at all, ha? 
Wish me luck, 

By the way I found that amazing piece of free hand sketch on Twitter by Ali Khaled you can find the tweet here. And I just couldn't stop thinking how much it is so perfect in an  imperfect way.
