DNF: The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

The Start of Me and You
by Emery Lord
Status: DNF

After reading numerous YA fantasy novels, I decided to place myself in modern time. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord happened to be one of the contemporary I started in February. The first page of the book did not draw me in, but I don't let the first page predetermined the fate of the whole book. I continued on page after page until I find myself not feel intrigue by this story anymore.

Maybe it would possibly be that I was not used to reading YA contemporary after reading so many YA fantasy that I felt out of my element. The whole time I was reading, I expected something adventurous to happen, which did not occurred. I reminded myself that I was not in a dystopian society, where the protagonist slay the antagonist.

After that little reminder, I placed myself back in modern time. About 30% into the story, I did not feel intrigue to continue on with Paige's journey. I admired Paige for her will to get back up again after dealing with the grief of her boyfriend's death. Paige has great friendships, who have her back. There was even romance slowly building, but it was not enough for me want to read more.

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.

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.
