DNF: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

The premise for Not a Drop to Dirnk by Mindy McGinnis distinct itself from other dystopian book, where society has a shorten water supply. Although it may seem very fiction, but this idea of water shorten is not make believe at all; it's actually one of the biggest environmental concern. I really wanted to see how the author spin off this problem.

From the start, it was dynamic with action scenes and explanation of how Lynn survive in this world with her mother. By the time I got a quarter into the book, I felt it lacked the charismatic vibe it sent out in the very beginning. In its place bear a slow pacing story line, where I hit my "reading slump." Why? I did not feel as all enthusiastic to open this book, so I ended up putting it aside and starting another book.

My second attempt to read Not a Drop to Drink arrived, but I eventually realized maybe it's not meant to be. Before I completely DNF it, I got through about 20 pages of it. Let's just say it did not pick up as fast as I thought it would. Ta da it landed itself in my DNF bile.

As for now I am not incline to pick this book up again, but never say never. I will do another reading attempt at it; I do not know when.

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.

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.
