Attachments by Rainbow Rowell Review

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

"You got mail."

A promising job advertisement lures Lincoln to be internet security, but in reality he was monitoring employee’s e-mails. Any e-mails red flagged were thoroughly read, which was when he stumbled across an ongoing virtual conversation between Beth and Jennifer. He doesn't report them, instead he find an interest in reading their witty responses to each other, and he finds himself drawn to a Beth, who he had no idea looked like. 
After finishing reading Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, I felt giddy and happy. This was my first time reading a book by this author, so I didn't know what to expect. Rowell's writing style was easy to understand with some humor as well. Each characters had their distinct voice, especially Beth and Lincoln. 

There is a saying that was mentioned in this book that men tend to fall in love with appearance first. Lincoln strayed from this in that he had no idea what she looked like; he was presented with her personality in which he falls for.   

I highly recommend this book to those whom enjoy reading contemporary romance, especially those who are not die-hard romance fans. This book is not satire with love cranked up to the max. 

Rating: 4/5 stars

C-DRAMA REVIEW: When a Snail Falls in Love

When a Snail Falls in Love left me with quite a first impression that I ended up marathoning the whole series or the current episodes already released online. I kept telling myself “patience is a virtue” as I waited for the last two episodes of this crime thriller. Although I have been spoiled for the ending, I still waited for English subtitles because I wanted to see how it all ends.
Straight from the start, this drama intrigue viewers by its unique title, When a Snail Falls in Love, which simply draws us in. It’s a figurative saying; it’s not about an actual snail and lion. In this case, the snail is Xu Xu, who is clever when it comes to psychoanalyze a crime, but slow when it comes to love. Ji Bai is the lion in terms of his fierce and brave ability to pursuit crimes and love. Two polar opposites; yet they make a perfect crime solving duo.

DRAMA RECAPS: 7 First Kisses Episode 3 & 4

Previously on Seven First Kisses, fairy godmother Choi Ji Woo granted Soo Jin’s wish of getting her first kiss by allowing her to meet seven mysterious men with “kiss” number one given by Lee Joon Gi. Just right after the kiss, she came back to present time and met her handsome boss, Park Hae Jin aka potential kiss number2.
EPISODE 3:  Park Hae Jin  Due to her using her cell phone during work, her boss inquired her to work overtime with him. When she walked into his office, she expected there to be lots of works to be done; rather she ate dinner with him. He seeing it was already late said he will take her home.

FIRST & LAST IMPRESSIONS: Medical Examiner Dr. Qin (C-Drama)

I intentionally meant for this to be a first impressions post, but somehow it led to the lasting impressions and review of this crime action Chinese drama. The title of this drama was what initially drew me into watching it since I am a fan of the American television show, CSI (Crime Scene Investigators). As luck would have it this drama is very similar to CSI; yet different in its own ways. Similar in that the opening song sounds very much like the one for CSI with several different beats and it follows Qin Ming (played by Zhang Ruo Yun), a chief forensic investigator for the Chinese police as he solve crime cases. The different in that its very fast pace.
