March B.S.S.: The Night World series by L.J. Smith


The Night World series by L.J. Smith
The Night World consisted of witches, vampires, shapeshifters, and werewolves,  is a dangerous place that no human have ever heard about until L.J. Smith created it. If ever any of these beings were to fall in love with a human, it's the end for them.

L.J. Smith is known for the Vampire Diaries, and the Secret Circle. 

At the tender age of 10 years of old, I was introduced to a supernatural world of witches, vampires, and shapeshifters of the Night World series. Once I got past intricate cover art, I was drawn into this fascinating world. These immortal beings look similar to any human, but they were not ordinary.

A ten books series with the 10th one still not been published yet. I was been waiting for the last book, Strange Fate for about 12 years. Originally these books were published as individual stories, but in the recent years, the publishers had combined them into three hefty books.

Night World series:
1.) Secret Vampire 
2.) Daughters of Darkness
3.) Spellbinder
4.) Dark Angel
5.) The Chosen
6.) Soulmate
7.) Huntress
8.) Black Dawn
9.) Witchlight
10.) Strange Fate (TBA)

The Night World  series focuses on a principle of soulmate, where two individuals are meant to be together in sense that they are able to mentally talk to each other. Everyone has a soulmate including those a part of the Night World. A plot twist arises when a human is matched with a supernatural being.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading paranormal stories involving witches, werewolves, vampires, and shapeshifters that emphasizes on an extraordinary romance. There are a couple of fight scenes, but are not in great details.

Overall Rating: 5/5 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.
