"awww" that were the only words that came put of my mouth after reading the ending of this book.. few years ago.. Lindsay Boxer was one of my favorite character ever written by any author ( well of course.. i have a lot in my list now ), this book really reminds me.. why i like her, her characteristics, her bravery even her weakness... she is one of my inspirations ^__^ can't wait to read the next book :)

Just Finished 50 Shades of Grey, great book btw though I wouldn't recommend it for people with a thing for celibacy and people who are closed minded about sex, but don't think that the book is all about sex the book is also psychological it helped me understand a few things about my self and how I think, so if you are a person that had a rough time in their formative years this book could really help you.

Note: I'm every bit as normal as what society is, but hey all of us have that hidden desire within ourselves

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

4 stars. Suspense, hacking, strong heroine. Lacks 1 star because I have seen the movie first before reading the book which preempted everything. But of course, the book is always better than the movie in the sense of story's context. Some parts were a bore. The book has a good plot. Thumbs up!

=============================================================

Oh yes! Nakatapos din ako ng libro kahit busy sa work. It took me 6 weeks to finish this novel. huhuhu.

I finished the entire series in 4days...I like the last book the best. It was a game of cat and mouse. Lisbeth is badass, kinda disturbing but still badass. If anyone is going to be the champion for the women who were treated horribly in this book she is IT for me. Justice will be serve :-) @malot...it is good to have u again spammer! Hehehe

Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson...(Lila#1) this is a mix of paranormal, sci-fi and romance. The storyline is something familiar that the plot tends to be predictable. By the time certain twist came I wasn't surprise at all. Lila the heroine I find annoying because she was impulsive and kinda turns mush whenever she thinks about Alex(her brother's best friend) whom she is in love with forever. So you can imagine when Alex is within her proximity or maybe I just didn't like how the author handled her feelings in here. So we have the villains who are not bad guys after all and the people you are supposed to trust are the real enemies and now they are running off the grid and are being hunted for their special psych abilities. It was okay I like it enough but there was just something missing for me.

considering this series was best selling i think majority of the people have hidden desires. i have my moments with this one. i've read this one way before it got published. it was originally a twilight fanfic and i am intrigue though of your sentiments about this book the psychological aspect of it.

the last book i finished was the woman warrior by maxine hong kingston. such a nice book. what makes it really interesting for me is its manner of storytelling. it is actually a creative non-fiction- an autobiography but with a touch of fantasy which actually blurs the demarcation line bet fantast and realit.. i hope one of u can read it.
