    marami pang iba.

    contemporary:

    pamela clare
    lisa kleypas pa rin
    linda howard
    julie james (chick lit)
    marami pang iba

    check amazon and goodreads for review ratings at least para malaman mo kung ano ang mas uunahin mo.

    you can post it here also (if you have TBR prepared na) and we will point you in the right direction.

    yup definitely it should be a movie. i wonder what the morrigan will looks like, and oberon should have a big credit on this book. he' s so fuuny and horny for french poodles. im such a dog lover.

    i like eva green (the sweet innocent portryal in James Bond not her current films or tv series) to play it. or charlize theron perhaps? basta someone that's beautiful but can be "evil".

    seriously i heart Oberon buti na lang ang pouch ko for my kindle is from Oberon

    will start book 2 this weekend

    and btw...hmmm...sweet evil seems good ha. 3 na kayo na nagrecommend! maDL nga.

    and slayze thanks akala ko ako lang ang may ayaw sa Beautiful Disasater

    charlize theron indeed but she have to dye her hair black, i dont know if it will look good. i want mila kunis, maybe because i want to see her naked (i'm not a tomboy, but her big eyes seems hot)


    Sweet evil, definitely 2 thumbs up. sweet, innocent and angelic si girl at handsome, playboy, evil si guy. a good story though, too bad wala pang sequel. 4.22 ratings sa goodreads, over 3k ang nag rate.

    ^ the first time it (sweet evil) was recommended i checked the recommendation in amazon and goodreads, pero alam mo naman ako (assuming ) may pagkaallergic sa YA

    big eyes = EVA GREEN! problem is her eyes is more of psychotic though i find her really pretty and she's willing to bare it all

    btw, any news if this was optioned to a movie? also, the first time i saw the cover of Hounded, he looks like the guy in I am no. 4.

    Why naman allergic sa YA? Maraming maganda pero mostly dami ma emo. I hate it. Sayang oras. Like nun last na basa ko, this is not a test. I tried to read it. Nakaka inis yung first part, dami arte, nawalan ako gana tapusin, pero eventually tinapos na din, sayang nasimulan na kasi, still hindi ko parin na appreciate, consider mataas rating sa goodreads. First time ako na disappoint sa goodreads.

    Hawt nun cover photo ng iron druid chronicles. Medyo ma bore ka sa last book na released, tricked ata un, pero sa una lang. Wala ako balita na opted for movie. Pero sana.

    OT chismis, rob and stewart are done. Cant believe she cheated on him. Funny I read in 9gag, better love story than twilight

    first of all i don't like simpering/helpless/emotional girls. and most YA stories goes like that. naiirita kasi ako kapag ganun.

    there are books however na okay lang sa simula yung ganung plot, pero by middle i should see the growth of the girl (toughening up) like in Perfect Chemistry.

    and another i hate (with a passion hehe) stories where the girl is torn between 2 guys (kasalanan ng twilight ito ).

    and robsten breaking up? good for them do anyone knows if kristen cheated on her previous bf before she hooked up with robert? if she did before, then there's no doubt she can do it again

    like? para ma avoid ko na at ma delete sa line up, ngayon ako ginaganahan mag basa ulit ng tuloy tuloy. and maganda ba Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill yun na sunod ko naka line up

    agree, there a lot better stories than twilight, i wonder why i was picked to be a movie, sayang yung ibang novels na mas worth maging movies

    and robsten breaking up? good for them do anyone knows if kristen cheated on her previous bf before she hooked up with robert? if she did before, then there's no doubt she can do it again
    she's a lost cause

    nasimulan ko dati ang chicagoland...pero ewan ko may napick up yata ako na book na iba kaya nahinto ko ang pagbabasa nun. it was funny though. a self-deprecating heroine if i remember it right.

    i like snarky H/H!

    books i stopped reading halfway or even earlier: moreno brothers series, vincent boys...marami pang iba! di ko na pinag-abalahang tandaan!

    anyways, feel free guys to comment if you think i should pick up the books again.

    agree, there a lot better stories than twilight, i wonder why i was picked to be a movie, sayang yung ibang novels na mas worth maging movies
    to be fair naman with twilight, i think the book/s have something what you can call it factor. problem is (sa akin lang naman!) i really don't like how Bella is portrayed, book and movie wise. anyways, this discussion on twilight books and movies are moot point because both have amassed millions (or billions?) na.

    and twilight part 2 - Fifty Shades now this, really, promise...i don't understand and now there are books sprouting left and right doing the same plot (sylvia day and others).

    and dammit! everything now comes in 3/trilogy! joskongmahabagin!

    guys...please ignore me. hindi ko lang talaga gusto both series. walang impact sa akin kundi ihinto ang pagbabasa nito. and btw, i am not a prude! nagbabasa rin ako ng mga nakapost sa ellora thread

    hey everyone! share ko lang some of my reads..


    Callum and Harper by Fisher Amelie - haaaaaaaaay.. can a couple be any more adorable than these two? seriously, Callum and Harper has 'Meant to Be' written all over them, from start to finish. The kind wherein walang Callum kung walang Harper na kasama. Puto-dinuguan kumbaga..

    And swear Callum owned the end of this book. Heart-wrenching! Medyo frustrating lang ang ibang circumstances, but swear, worth the read!

    I can imagine this book giving inspiration to kids with the same situation as Callum and Harper's so bravo for that!


    Zero Sight Series by B. Justin Shier - this one's guy POV, and holy bananas was it hilarious! Very Harry Potter-ish but with a lot more action, and I mean the gory, gritty, bloody kind. Snarky dialogue, mix of science and magic type of read, I didn't understand half of the science terms I was reading but I didn't care.

    I know you guys dislike weak heroines but I assure you guys, here the female is definitely NOT weak, she's the epitome of bad-ass actually, scary even.

    As for the male lead, Aliw basahin ang POV nya. He's kinda the bad boy science nerd, attractive but oblivious to that fact kinda guy. YUM!


    Something Like Normal by Trish Doller - guy POV too! (yay!) emotional emotional emotional, but written in a surprisingly light way. Sweet and angst-y! I read this in one sitting. Now this is where great editing comes through for me. Some books have lots of unnecessary scenes just to make a book longer, ugh! but not with this one! Its a short read, but super packed.

    Its about the guy returning from war and dealing with the things he experienced during said war, and things he left before he left for war (family etc.).

    Now, if i ever had a doubt about having a thing for men in uniform, this book erased those doubts . I was even crushing on the dead best friend (creepy ba!? haha!) pero kasi he's the kind of guy whom you just know is somehting else based on the lead's flashbacks. waaaah I was really affected by his death. dinibdib ko talaga.

    Love the flashbacks btw. super vivid you can't help but be affectionate towards these soldiers, for me, they set the whole feel on the why the lead guy is messed up like that.


    Between the Lines Series by Tammara Webber
    - For me, the first book was an eh, so-so book for me. I now fondly refer to it as a prequel, because it sets the tone, introduces the characters, etc. of the whole series. Pretty important so please don't skip it if you're planning to read the series.

    Good thing I read Easy first bec. it gave me faith towards the author's writing. True enough the 2nd and esp. the 3rd are waaaaay better, the author whose writing I fell in love with in Easy are in these two books!

    I really love Webber's writing. May purpose. She has points she wants to get across, and she does it very well. She has these feminist tendencies she manages to infuse into her novels. Girl Power YEAH!!!

    And I also love her bec. she introduced Reid Alexander to me. I have never read anyone like him. Total jerk, absolutely spoiled, and seriously messed up and flawed for two whole books! Buuuuuuuuuut she managed to make me intrigued with this enigmatic character, and yes maybe even like him, very reluctantly. And just when you think he's nonredeemable, the 3rd book comes and whoooosh! You are swept off your feet by the perfection of his redemption.

    whoops sorry guys super haba na naman ng post ko..
