REVIEW: November 9 by Colleen Hoover

November 9
by Colleen Hoover
"Because when you love someone, you owe it to them to help them be the best version of themselves that they can be." - Ben
Opps I did it again I got hooked onto another Colleen Hoover book. It played with my heart and got lost into the story line that I did not noticed until I reached the end.

Let's write a love story unlike any other, but we only meet on November 9th for five years, and did I mentioned we cannot contact each other what so ever. A brilliant idea of Ben and Fallon, who did not expect it would be easy than it seemed.

Despite it unique story line, I felt a bit distance with the characters. Their annual meet ups were the only time I get to see how their year was; rather than reading about their many struggles.

Ben, a lovable character with a secretive vibe. He's genuinely a nice guy, whose past left emotional scars. At the end of the day I want to give him a hug for what he has been through.

As for Fallon, who changed from a scared girl to a confidence woman. She paled in the department of running away from her problems, especially when it comes to ones related to love. Even if she does not believe it everything does happened for a reason.

I highly recommend this book or any Colleen Hoover books to read. It does wonders for the heart.

Rating: 4 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.
