Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot Review

Royal Wedding (Princess Diaries, Volume XI) by Meg Cabot

Royal Wedding, the eleventh book of the Princess Diaries, takes place quite some time after the last time readers had heard about Princess Mia. She graduated college, still the Princess of Genovia, and in love with her long time boyfriend, Michael. A secretive trip to Bahamas turned to a life changing event of Michael proposing to Mia. She said yes, which lead to a whirlwind of events to plan a royal wedding. Aside from wedding preparation, more scandals rock the royal family.

How did I find out about this book? I happened to browse Tumblr one night to come across news about an adult spin off to the Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot. Ecstatic would be a more calmer way to express my surprise. I literally jumped for joy because it is a beloved series of mine ever since I was in middle school.

My thoughts about this book, I absolutely adore this book. It brought me the same feelings of joy, laughter, angst and giddiness that I felt from reading this beloved series. I miss reading Meg Cabot's writing style, and the characters, especially Mia. The Princess Diaries series had evolved from previous books in that Mia is all grown up. In addition, the author added several references to popular cultures that made me more giddy when I noticed her reference Harry Potter and the Hunger Games.

Finally words: a must read to fans of Princess Mia and those who are looking for a feel good kind of book.

Rating: 5/5

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.
