REVIEW: Too Late by Colleen Hoover

Too Late
by Colleen Hoover
Is it too late to tell you I read another Colleen Hoover book? I guess not since I did. Did I mentioned it's free to read on Wattpad, so pretty much I was bound to read it.

The story goes something like this, boy (Carter)  meets girl (Sloan), but they can't be together yet. He has prior obligations to fulfill before they can be with each other. While she is stuck in a loveless kind of relationship with another boy.
Certainly not my favorite book by Colleen Hoover. Maybe it could be due to the story line containing predictable elements that made me feel disconnected with the characters. I didn't find anything unique about this story since it sounds as though I might have read something similar to it somewhere else.

Midway toward the book I lost interest in the story. I could not find myself to DNF it probably because it's a Colleen Hoover's book. I skimmed through the rest of it.

Let's talk about characters, especially Sloan, Carter and Asa.

Sloan, an admirable person, who would do anything for the person she loved even putting off her own happiness. She's strong to have endure with all the shenanigans that Asa put her through; yet can be ignorant at time.

Carter, a charming fella, who find himself at a difficult situation of whether to follow his duties or listen to his heart. He came off as a knight in shining armor ready to rescue the damsel in distress.

Asa, who thinks the world revolve around him. It's either his way or the highway. An alpha male personality of dominating everyone. His past deeply scared him and left him with trust issues. Still it does not make him any less of a jerk.

It will not be too late for me to say it's great that the author posted this story online for readers to read for free. Don't let my review prevent you from giving it a chance. It might be your cup of tea.

Rating: 2 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.
