She’s Dating the Gangster by SG Wannabe

                             

     “Love is happiness…Love is smiling when you hear that person’s voice… Love is the butterflies in your tummy no matter how many times you see that person… Love is when you look at them and smile for no reason… Love is seeing an imperfect person perfectly…Love is painful.. Love is hard… Love is sacrifice.. love is sadness..”

      THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST HEARTBREAKING STORIES I READ SO FAR..I can’t seem to utter anything coherent right now. It stings right through your heart with no intention of mending. I’m too SHOCKED.. STUNNED..FLABBERGASTED, my mind is so far away i wanted to tell myself that it’s just a novel. That i shouldn’t be too overwhelmed, too affected, that this kind of story is not really happening in the real world. Isn’t it?… 
I didn’t expect that reading this would make me feel this way. I was having some hesitation because I thought the story was corny and cheesy. And I hated that it has to use 3 different languages when I’m perfectly fine with one. I wanted at least for it to use only Filipino so why bother making the readers confuse? I thought the story is dragging, simple, and the characters are shallow. My pessimism got the better of me I almost withdrawn from reading this… But I take them back. Because this story surely hits home. It’s one of those that will make you realize how great love is. I felt what the characters feel, my heart ached with them, I truly felt their infinite love for each other. I wanted to take away all the pain Athena’s feeling, I wanted to tell Kenji to stop being such a sweet and great guy, and the last thing I wanted is to see a guy hurting and crying for the girl he loves. But at the same time I felt their helplessness to accept their fate. This novel is so great that it will make you happy, laugh, giddy, sad, and cry. It’s like the Romeo and Juliet love story but it also reminds me of the novel A Walk to Remember. It made me appreciate that love exists in this world, that it could change people in so many ways and make them take risks and choices they never imagined they could…


huhuhuhuhu.. WARNING this is not for the faint hearted! Severe Heart ache included..

Nakaka-inlove.. Nakakaiyak(super)… Nakaka-emo…

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

After reading this book. . . . .

My heart is torn apart, broken into little pieces, and scattered all over the place.

I’m trying to tape them back together but it’s useless, impossible, it can’t be whole again.. not until Tessa choose Will, not until Will is happy..not until Tessa is freed from the crucial decision she has to make in the end….

I never thought Cassandra Clare is capable of doing something so emotional in the midst of the Shadowhunting world. Clockwork prince is the second book to the Infernal Devices trilogy I came to love. If you liked the first one, there’ll be no frustration in the second book. There are enough surprises, revelations, and betrayals. The ever beautiful Victorian London is perfectly described, and the story brilliantly paced and told. I found their conversation quite wonderful it was like going back in time but still enjoying the company of some interesting people from the past. In here, you’ll see the depths of Will’s mysterious personality. Why he has to be so despicable and why he has to push Tessa away. I sincerely felt bad for him, he endured everything all by himself. And just thinking of how everything turned out makes me so disappointed. If only he had known it earlier, things would have turned out different for him, for his family, and for Tessa. But it’s too late now, it’s why I pity his predicament. But not Jem, he’s one lucky shadowhunter I wanted to make him feel how his parabatai’s feeling. I’m not exactly mad at him. I just realized,after reading this,how badly I wanted Tessa and Will to be together. I can’t blame Jem either because he’s too good, and he’s dying. I cannot bear to see him hurt. Man! Could everything gets even more confusing!

So I’m just hoping against all hope that Tessa makes the right decision in the end. I’m feeling that it’ll still be Will even though their future together seems far-fetched. I can’t wait for the last installment! Can’t bloody wait!

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

I think i’ve been infected with amor deliria nervosa for a while now.

I kept on thinking how lauren oliver came up with a beautiful concept. Love as a disease sounds impossible and absurd at first, but it was introduced in a brilliant way with all the poems and paragraph from books oliver created. It added to the dystopic atmosphere during their times. I even found myself anticipating the beginning of every chapter. Plus the incredible writing skills of the author, her writing is just pure and heartfelt that i didn’t get tired reading how the story unfolds. I’ve been very much into dystopian novels nowadays so reading one is a pleasure to me. I wouldn’t compare it to the hunger games because i clearly understand that the author steered clear from the kind of story the HG is famous for. it is not as action-packed but it focuses more on the love story, of course it’s natural for it talks of love being a disease. And i think it’s emotional inclination to the readers is what made the book more interestng.

The plot chronicles the development of the forbidden love and as all forbidden love goes, there will come a time when people will try to tear it apart, which brings us to the ending. Well, it was touching and heartbreaking. I was impatiently waiting for the big climax when the there will be a great battle or something similar but it was rather different. After reading the last few paragraphs, i stared at the remaining blank pages and can’t believe it ended that way….

I wanted to go inside the book and throw Alex to the other side of the fence because i didn’t want to see sacrifices or even Romeo and Juliet references. The sight was just too unbearable. It’s very emotional, and i would recommend it to any sappy love story/dystopian fanatic out there. So now i can’t wait for the next book, pandemonium!
