Read : P.S. I Love You

This novel had kept me engaged reading which I enjoyed it very much until way passed my bedtime. I took about 2-3 weeks reading it.

It was emotional and touching story, whereby the main character, Holly whom lost her husband due to tumour and she was devastated. She found letters written by her husband before he died which consists of  tasks for her to perform so that she will be pick herself up. I liked the letters were written in witty and romantic manner.

Anyway, she has a bunch of supportive friends who took care of her during her grieving process. I liked the part where Holly and her friends going for a crazy girl’s night and even being recorded and broadcasted on the TV.

One of the touching quote was beautifully written from the book,

Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful, wonderful feeling. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you forever, no matter what. They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after we’re gone.” Holly

awww, I wondered if there is such person in this world. 🙂

Very hilarous at the beginning chapters of the narrator’s broken English. She’s a student from China went to England to study English. As she stayed there over time, her English improved, as well as her ability to express. She met an Englishmen and began to fall in love. It was culture clash between her typical conversative Chinese and open minded West. She thought anyone in West who said love means the same way in China. She realised that eventhough she learns all the English words from the Dictionary and still not understand her lover.

 

THis book is real funny and poignant. I took nearly 1-2 weeks to complete reading this book. This book is recommended if you want some humour and interesting type of fictions.

The King of Torts is a thriller book, fast paced and full of surprises. It gave me insights of mass tort law. It wasn’t highly action packed like other John Grisham’s books. It made up with intensity of each character.

I like the part of a humble lawyer working for OPD, then making it big in own law firm, then back to humble life. This also taught me there are greedy lawyers involved in high class action cases.

This book is kind of dull and lengthy, as a result, it took me about 3 months to complete reading the whole book. There wasn’t any suspense infused in it. Anyway, there is a lesson learnt that one should not be too greedy as eventually will end up a poorer person.

Sorry that I haven’t been updating my blog for nearly 2 months.I don’t have any topic in mind to write about. For the past 2 months, there’s nothing much to shout about. I guess it’s writer’s block disease has been bugging me.

I’m currently reading a romance novel Born In Fire written by Nora Roberts. Set in Ireland, a glass artist, Maggie whose emotions fiery and stubborn was noticed by a businessman, Rogan whom bought all her glass collection before knowing her. He visited her isolated studio, then her heart was enflamed by the attraction from him. Rogan has seen her firing glass with all her heart. He confidently opened a gallery  displaying all her colourful art glass collection in Dublin. In a day of exhibition, all of her glass masterpiece was sold profiting three hundred pounds. He had his own ways of flirting with her while promoting her work and building her career.

A modern romantic storyline and I like the Ireland setting with flowers in the garden beside the cottage.

I have read 3rd quarter of the book and I sort of could guses the storyline with romance encounter.

 

If you are interested in lots of romantic encounter in a novel, here’s a suitable book. However, there is no mushy and enchanting phrases between Maggie and Rogan, just fiery words that attract each other.
