REVIEW: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath and the Dawn
(The Wrath and the Dawn #1)
by Renee Ahdieh
Goodreads
"All our lives are forfeit, sayyidi. It is just a question of when. And I would like one more day." - Shahrzad
The Wrath and the Dawn had taken me on a magic carpet ride that I did not want to end. Since I mentioned a magic carpet, the song, "A Whole New World" from the Aladdin movie constantly played in my head as I read this book. It did take me to "a whole new world" filled with mysteries, secrets, love, and magic.

The author transported me into a magical fairy tale-like world that I very much enjoyed. She retold a 1001 Nights, but with her own spin to it. She weaved a story line that was hard to stop reading.

I have got to talk about the OTP (one true pairing) in this book: Shahrzad and Khalid. Shadrzad with her sass and Khalid with his mysterious demeanor ignited their intense chemistry. Officially, I am a fangirl for them now.

A cliff hanger ending that got me excited to read the sequel, The Rose and the Dagger. With that being said, you are in for a magical ride once you pick up this 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.
