MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

The whole drama started pretty awkward, the actors didn’t do a great job but with time they worked it out and the drama got sooo much better.I expected a little bit different story then I got. It looked like a fun comedy .but in reality  It’s more “grown up”, I would call it a “melodrama” in a way. I liked it. The plot was interesting,I liked the on/off relationship dynamic.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

 

Ong Seong Wu Is Determined To Keep Seeing Shin Ye Eun In "More Than  Friends" Episode 3 - kdramadiary

The main romantic plot was a love triangle, it’s not my favorite trope in a romance ,but it was done okay. To be honest I had the worst second-lead syndrome ever in this drama! If you don’t know Second Lead Syndrome or SLS is when you root for the second male lead in a drama and wish the female lead would choose him although you know that it wouldn’t happen.Maybe it was because the chemistry was stronger with the second lead then our main love interest. This romance wasn’t the only one we saw. The friendgroup had they’re own romance/problems we saw here and there and I loved watching it.

 

HOW IT ENDS

*Mild Spoilers*

I expected the ending! It was good,sweet and we got answers to some questions. I’m okay with it.

“Train” pleasantly surprised me -kdrama review(spoiler-free)

About the drama:

for compilation 2-vertA hard-hitting detective who fearlessly dives into his work, Seo Do Won is relentless when it comes to bringing criminals to justice. Willing to take on any case, no matter how hard, Do Won has made a name for himself as a man who gets the job done. But when the woman he loves becomes the latest victim of a serial killer, his world completely changes. Literally.
Mysteriously able to move between parallel universes, Do Won now lives in both worlds as a man who must pay for the sins of his father in one, and as a man forced to live a precarious life because of those sins in the other. As if the duality of his life wasn’t hard enough to deal with, he soon learns that his deceased love may be gone in one world, but she’s very much alive in the other. Vowing to track down her killer in one universe, while simultaneously trying to protect her in the other, Do Won is quick to acknowledge this is not something he can do alone. Seeking the help of his colleagues in both universes, Do Won asks Han Seo Kyung, an honest, yet reserved prosecutor with a big heart in one world, and a cold and emotionless detective in the other, to help him out. Together with Lee Jung Min, a tenacious member of the scientific investigation unit, they’ll do whatever it takes to track down the killer in one world and protect his love in the other. But will their efforts in either universe really be enough?

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

I don’t know what I expected from this drama…but  I got a totally different thing! Like it was GOOD, truly good. Lots of blood, a fascinating mystery, and a great main hero. The acting was good, sometimes too intense in my opinion but not painfully so…It was still enjoyable. It’s similar to Welcome2Life, so if you liked it you will love this too! 

It’s a real thriller mystery, so if you don’t like those, skip this one!

3,5/5 stars

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

Okay, this one was weird! We didn’t get a “couple” at all, it was just “I like you/love you” type of situation, but they were never together. Was there chemistry between the actors? Yes, definitely!

HOW IT ENDS

*Mild Spoilers*

I was disappointed, it was an open ending …and If you didn’t know  I don’t like those. That’s why it’s not a 4-star drama.

The Fae Hunter’s Daughter (Whims of Witches #1) by Nissa Leder -Book review

I talked about this book(and many more ) on my new bookstagram account, so if you want to check it out here is the linkaurorasbookcorner

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

When Eden discovers she has magic, she’s thrown into the middle of a supernatural world she never knew existed.

Everything was normal in Eden Brooks’ life until two weeks ago, when in a moment of frustration, she threw a remote across the living room at her twin sister—with her mind. But that’s not all. Somehow, she can make water boil and start a fire without a match.

At first, Eden keeps her newfound abilities a secret. Until she meets Nox at the park near her house. He’s mysterious, witty, and not bad to look at. But more than that, he has magic of his own.

But as Eden gets to know him, she learns his powers aren’t the same as hers and that his motives aren’t as selfless as he pretends. When her dad sees the two of them together, he forbids her from seeing him ever again.

Soon, she learns truths about her father she never thought possible, leading Eden to question everything she knows.

The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 3/5

Main Hero– We get multiple points of view, so it’s hard to tell anything about it.

Smexy Times?– Non

Overall – 3,5/5 stars

This is the first book I have read from this particular author. My main reason for getting this ebook was the cover😍(and of course the title, who doesn’t love some fea in they’re life). I loved the writing style, the story was interesting and easy to follow. This story is told from multiple points of view, I don’t like books like that, but in this case, it worked, mainly because you could really tell the difference between our heroes. Overall a great easy and fast read, have already gotten the next book and can’t wait to see where this story is going

good

 

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

 

The show on TV was about a bunch of girls competing to win some modeling contract. Two of the contestants were arguing about who deserved to win the show.
Silver’s eyebrow curved. “This is what humans spend their time fighting over?”
Vito sipped his wine. “Wonderful, isn’t it?”

“Lipstick is a tricky thing.” Eden shut Fiona’s door and using the button on the keys, made sure she was locked. “One wrong move of the lips before it’s dry and bad things can happen.”

“My friend seems to have a case of love-at-first-sight,” the girl said. “Which isn’t like him.”
“Ahh, good ol’ love-at-first-sight. So fairytale-esque.”

“Fae Hunters, huh?” Kaelem leaned back. “Like Buffy but they hunt us not vampires. Interesting.”

“I’ve been dreaming of you,” Stella said. “Not in a creepy way, but I’m a clairvoyant.

Magnolia Cove Series By Ella Fields(Short Review)- Spoiler free

Kiss and Break Up
(Magnolia Cove #1)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

44285993._SY475_Dashiell Thane wasn’t a nice guy.
He was an abrasive, demanding, conniving, intolerable brat.
Yet somehow, we’d been best friends our whole lives.
Until our senior year when I finally decided to dip my toes into the dating pool.

All it took was one kiss for jealousy, lies, and betrayal to sweep in and propel us heart first into dizzying, hostile depths.

You’re not supposed to kiss your best friend.
You’re definitely not supposed to kiss your best friend while you’re dating someone else.
And the absolute worst thing you could do is fall for your best friend.
Unless, of course, you want to ruin everything.

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

I was up the whole night to finish this book, so you can say I was invested! I really really liked it…but did I love it? Not really, there were moments I felt where dragging a little bit. But did it make the story less interesting and sweet? No, totally not. I would recommend it if you like angsty romance stories.

3,8/5 stars

 

Forever and Never
(Magnolia Cove #2)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

43411673._SY475_Lars Bradby was supposed to be my forever.
That was before we found out he would become a father at the tender age of eighteen.

For years, he’d watched me.
For months, he’d wanted me.
For weeks, he’d chased me.

Relentless and infuriating, he turned my stubborn heart into something pliable and weak.
Sly and honest, he worked his way into my life as though he’d always planned to be the focal point of it.

In love and naive, even when our future seemed bleak, I believed in us.
Heartbroken and desperate, I tore my bleeding heart from my chest, wanting only the best for him.

In doing so, our forever wasn’t just interrupted. It was chased away with one irreversible decision after another.
And now, we could no longer see it beneath the heaping piles of debris we’d left in our wake.

jessica-ruscello-OQSCtabGkSY-unsplash

After reading the first one, I decided to read the whole series. This was a very raw and emotional read. Definitely more intense than the first book. A very honest story of love, life and growing up. I loved it, would definitely recommend it.

4/5 stars

 

Hearts and Thorns
(Magnolia Cove #3)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

44420747._SY475_Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult stepbrother romance

This book blew my mind! I didn’t expect the road it took. I’m really trying not to spoil it, because of how much my mind was blown… just read it! And yes, it does drag a little bit in the middle but the ending…it makes up for it.

4/5 stars

The Wild One (Corisi Billionaires #2) by Ruth Cardello – Book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

She wants to go wild. A billionaire decides to go with her. For two Americans in Paris, love wasn’t in the plans in New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy high-stakes romance.

After years of choosing safe over satisfying, a weeklong Paris fling sounds perfect to Wren Heath. And who better to have it with than Mauricio Romano, a billionaire with a reputation as a first-class heartbreaker. A few days. Fun, then done. What happens on vacation stays on vacation, right?

Paris was Mauricio’s playground, and love was never part of the game. Lust? Toujours. Then he meets a sweet woman who wants to be a sex kitten. He knows how to give her the wildest five days and nights of her life. No commitments. No strings. But the hotter it gets, the harder it is to remember his own rules.

What do you do when what happens in Paris stays in your heart and then shows up at home?

Are these two destined to clash or destined for love?

Overall – 4 /5 stars

4 stars

 

To be fair it started a little bit slow for me, but after the first 3 chapters, it started picking up. The story was interesting, very funny in some places, great writing(will definitely check other books by this author). We get the whole story from a dual point of view(Mauricio and Wren), I usually don’t like that but in this book, it worked amazingly.  This was an instant-love story(more like instant lust to love ), so if you don’t like those better skip this one. The only thing I was confused about was the first and last chapter, we get the main hero from the first book in this series and his “point of view” and I was confused why is it there? Like it didn’t add to the story, and because I haven’t read the first book in this series I was lost…So I advise you to read it before you read this one. Overall a great book would recommend!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK 

Loyalty made almost any sin pardonable

Except fucking bunny ears


“There is nothing shameful about the human form”

“I agree” I did. In theory. I justs couldn’t help that I’d been raised with closed doors and fully dressed parents 


Mauricio would sell me a fantasy, then forget my name

His fantasy.

Not mine.


My father looked to Sebastian.”He’s the pretty one, but has he always been this slow? In a minute I’m going to walk away, wait for one of you to slap some sense into him: then and only then will I come back and try this conversation again”

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson-Book Review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

“As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me. . . .”

Memories define us.

So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep?

Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love—all forgotten overnight.

And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story.

Welcome to Christine’s life.

Smexy Times?– In flashbacks Yes

Overall – 4,9/5 stars

This is something to celebrate! I finally read one of my never ending physical TBR pile books. And it was very good! I haven’t read any books in Latvian for such a long time and I’m so happy I did that. So what can I say about this book? It was an amazing concept, waking up every day without remembering who you are and why you are here is an amazing situation to put in a thriller kind of setting. And it works! I was so sucked in the story that I stayed up until 3 in the morning to finish it. Great book, the great main hero and the “twist” was well executed. Would definitely recommend for you to check it out if you like thrillers, mysteries, and detective stories , you will definitely enjoy it!

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK 

I cannot imagine how I will cope when I discover that my life is behind me, has already happened, and I have nothing to show for it. No treasure house of collection, no wealth of experience, no accumulated wisdom to pass on. What are we, if not an accumulation of our memories?”


This is dying everyday. Over and over.”


It’s not life, it’s just an existence, jumping from one moment to the next with no idea of the past, and no plan for the future.”


“I am sliding, down,down. Toward blackness, I must not sleep. I must not sleep.I.Must.Not.Sleep.

“Us,Again” by Elle Maxwell – Spoiler Free review

Us, Again

by Elle Maxwell

47952877._SY475_About the book: It’s really him. The former love of my life. The man I gave everything to, who broke me so badly the pieces never healed back together properly.”

Graham Wyatt might be 6’2” of irresistible muscled, tattooed, angsty Alpha male (and don’t forget the man bun)—but sorry, ladies! He’s a one-woman man. Specifically, Mackenzie Thatcher, the love of his life whose heart he broke 5 years ago. Now that he’s out of prison (yes, prison…it’s a long story) he’s determined to redeem himself and prove he’s reformed his bad-boy ways so she’ll give him a second chance.

Mackenzie, on the other hand, has vowed off love forever. She’s already experienced excruciating heartbreak, and she has no intention of ever getting near that particular fire again…especially with the very man who burned her in the first place. She’s perfectly happy being a badass independent woman, thank you very much. That is, until seeing Graham again stirs up feelings she doesn’t know what to do with (besides a little quality time with her B.O.B.).

She’s not going to give in easily, but he isn’t afraid to play a little dirty. (Like that time he showed up to her yoga class and took off his shirt…) Graham is determined to do whatever it takes to win her back, even when some drug-dealing demons from his past show up and threaten the progress he’s starting to make.

Can Graham keep from repeating his past mistakes and find redemption with the woman he loves?

This contemporary second chance romance from debut author Elle Maxwell is a full length novel that is a standalone with no cliffhanger.

This was a cover buy for me! Looking at the cover I expected a light contemporary romance mostly told from the girl’s point of view, but it was the opposite. I didn’t expect it at all. Was it good? Yes! Did I enjoy it? Totaly!Great book about a second chance romance.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK 

I’m looking for companionship and compatibility, not passion. Passion is nothing but a temporary high that eats your brain cells.”

————————————–
The sight of her hits me, and I am suddenly afflicted with every single romantic cliché.
Heart racing? Check.
Breath taken away? Check.
Vision narrowing until I only see her? Check.
Weak knees? Check
—————————————-
I turn my attention to my new nemesis, AKA the lucky bastard she wore that outfit for.
—————————————
(My resume is going to be stellar … short and sweet, a line for “MA State Prison Inmate, Accessory to Murder” followed by “Mackenzie Thatcher’s Stalker.” Who wouldn’t hire me?)
————————————–
When a woman orders you to do something while bawling her eyes out, you do the damn thing. I suppose I’m lucky she didn’t tell me to jump off a bridge or wear a tutu, because at the moment I’d do anything if it had a chance of calming her down.
————————————-
“Twenty minutes,” Shaina consents with a look and tone that screams ‘mom’ that I’ve seen countless times from my own mother. Perhaps it’s part of some standard hormonal programming that’s automatically downloaded into women when they give birth.
