Sweet Little Thing by Renee Carlino Review

Sweet Little Thing by Renee Carlino
Source: Goodreads
"True love is the ironically selfless need to know that your person will be okay without you." - Will
A continuum of  Will and Mia's journey in Sweet Thing; told from Will's perspective. As they plan their future together, unexpected news arise will forever change them:
 "'Sometimes we're just along for the ride,' she said over my shoulder. 'We can't control everything; we can only do our best to control our reactions when life doesn't go our way."' - Martha
Life throws many surprises along the way, hang on and everything happens for a reason.

A wonderful conclusion to Sweet Thing series by Renee Carlino. Reading about Will and Mia's relationship got me to feel giddy inside; a complete 360 from where they started in the beginning compared to their current bliss. They developed to an extraordinary couple, who have an admirable love that people dream about:        
"I was convinced we had lived twenty thousand lives, and in each one, we found each other, like two tiny magnets in a drawer the size of the universe." - Will
Two magnets that found each in a big world would explained their love. From this they helped make each other better.

Mature images of this lovely couple. In Sweet Thing, Mia's character was nerve racking since she had no idea of her purpose in life until she came to New York. Now, she grown to an independent, strong and confidence woman:
"I learned that you can't predict your future, there's no crystal ball or formula for happiness. You can't count the weather just like you can't control the way others behave, but what you can control is how much love you give. Surrendering to this crazy thing called life is hard, but we don't have to be the soulless sheet of paper tarrying along in the wind. We can find our people, love, respect them, and then hang on for dear life because it's not where you go on this journey but who you're with that matter the most." - Mia
The childish Mia no longer dragged her down. All of this due to the loving care of Will, who made her understand that no matter what life throws at her, it's whom by her side are all that matter. In turn, she inspires him everyday:
"'It means the beauty and wonder that I see in you every day colors each page of my life and makes it more vibrant. You make my experience more meaningful.'" - Will
 Mia, the muse to Will's life. They bring the best out of each  other.

Let keep this short, highly recommended book. A great conclusion to Sweet Thing series. A must read to those who adore Will and Mia in the first book.

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.
