DRAMA RECAPS: 7 First Kisses Episodes 7 & 8

Image
EPISODE 7: Lee Jong Suk Previously on 7 First Kisses, Soo Jin had kissed two K-pop superstars, Kai from EXO and Ok Taecyeon from 2PM. Sadly, she had to return back to reality, where she is once again at the information desk.
Her manager selected her for an opportunity to be in a commercial with none other than celebrity Lee Jong Suk.  Fan girl moment. The director seemed skeptical of her acting skills since she looked so nervous in front of Jong Suk. Being a nice guy, he persuaded the director that it was her first time so it’s natural. Her nervousness continued as they act with the final straw being her reaction when he placed a necklace around her neck.

BOOK REVIEW: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Image
My first book review for the year after recovering from a reading slump and Three Dark Crowns had me wondering what I read. The premise of triplet queens born with supernatural abilities was initially what got me to read this book. While the book shines in certain areas, it weakens in others.
The story started off slow and steady and stayed at that rate for about seventy percent of the book. In the beginning, the author introduced readers to the three sisters, Katherine, Arsinoe, and Mirabella. They lived in separate cities to improve their specialties with eventually they will meet in the capital to compete to become a sole queen. The space in between these events brought no excitement in terms of character or plot development.
