Review: V for Vendetta by Alan Moore, David Lloyd (Illustrator)

V for Vendetta

A man must live of with an idea. Although an idea, no matter how brilliant, will not suffice unless action is taken upon it. This story reminds us of our own. It’s something familiar, relatable.

There’s no flesh or blood within this cloak to kill. There’s only an idea. Ideas are bulletproof.

Recently I’ve noticed that a lot of people blame society for it’s high standards and media for it’s silent expectations. I’ve encountered numerous times where people point fingers without making sure their own hands are clean.

Teaser Tuesday: The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

The strap is designed so they never have to put their hands in front of Melanie’s face. Melanie sometimes says, “I won’t bite.” She says it as a joke, but Sergeant’s people never laugh.

Lez be real. It’s not Tuesday. But I’ve been watching a lot of Walking Dead (Video Game) in YouTube. I actually like it better than the actual TV Series, and it just feels a little more realistic plus less annoying. Anyway, I watched pewdiepie’s walk through in case you were wondering. I like how emotional and connected he is especially at the end of both seasons. *bro fist*

So obviously, this book is about zombie apocalypse! Which is horror, and I don’t normally read that genre. Let’s admit it. I’m pretty much a pussy, but a cute one. I’ve been loving it recently! I can tell that it’s a good book already. I’m excited to finish this, so I can share my opinion with you guys! The idea of zombies has always freaked me out. So I never really got the hype. But now, I get it why it’s so engaging. BECAUSE THEY’RE (literally) RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES.

Tell me if you’ve read it! Or you have read something similar. I would really love to know if you enjoy these kinds of books, and if you have any recommendations for me to read. My book collection is in dire need of more horror books. But bear in mind that I’m still a beginner, so no Stephen King’s Carrie scary please, hahaha!

Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Statistical Probability of Love at First SightBullshit.

“Hadley meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British, sits in her row.”

Bullshit. This part of the blurb is hilarious. Is being British one of the qualifications to be called perfect? I’ve read the novel. Pretty sure he’s no near Johnny Deep (aka perfection).

Review: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door

Typical.

Samantha, a white girl, thinks she’s so “normal,” and I quote, “..blond hair, blue eyes, freckles, nothing special” Damn right you are! You keep on talking like that and you’ll be every other girl in the neighbourhood. You’re a rich girl. I’m sure we can find and buy you something special. So stop fucking moaning.

Update: How I Spent My Holiday

So we went somewhere.. And it’s crazy how these things won’t register as something real, unless we actually go there and experience it ourselves. What I’m trying to say is we (it means my family plus me) went to Baler in Quezon Province–it’s a local tourist spot (that I’ve never heard of) in the Philippines.

If you’re a beach junkie and you’re looking for a good place to hang out or just relax without clearing your bank account then this is the place.

Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Night Film

GO HOME NIGHT FILM, YOU’RE DRUNK

If you’re planning to read this, you’re pretty much fucked.The fact that this book didn’t warn me about its contents, which btw includes devil worship and witchcraft, is plain evil and just mean. If they placed Stephen King on the cover, then I would’ve known what I was dealing with. I can’t just guess what’s the book is about. I can read the blurb but it isn’t even close to the actual plot. So yeah, I was fucked.

Update: Merry Christmas! (and can we just ignore the fact that it’s over)

Yes, it’s late. And yes, I’m a bad blogger. But for the love of Baby Jesus (no pun intended) let’s please ignore the fact that it’s over.

I wanna greet you, burnners, a (belated)

MERRY CHRISTMAS! ♥︎

So in our family, we had to do the mandatory family Christmas party. And of course, what’s more appropriate than a basic, casual, attire? This is what I wore: I opted for a maroon shirt, because I couldn’t find a red one that would match the theme. And Joni-esque, which is the infamous, high-waisted (wedgie) jeans from Topshop–take note, the esque. (Pardon, it’s the only pose I know)
