I heard the
hushed melting
of the last flake
of winter on the
drying road bathed
with the first infant
rays of spring,

I felt the
spinning earth
waited a bit,

I saw a
second lasted
more than a minute,

when you smiled at me
for the first time.

2015 Reading Challenge Super Update Part 4 (26th to 28th)


2015’s first half is now officially over so it is now time to give an update on my 2015 Reading Challenge.

Last month has been so busy but thankfully I was able to a few good books. Here are they:

A mystery (26th) –  The Vanishing Point by Val McDermid

The Vanishing Point

I never realized that I missed reading an awesome murder mystery novel until I read this book. I will definitely read another Val McDermid novel!

A book set somewhere you’ve wanted to visit (27th) – Tongue by  Kyung-ran Jo


Ever since I was in elementary, it is my dream to visit South Korea. It is because my first celebrity crush is a Korean actor named Bae Yong Joon! (blushes)

Isn’t he handsome! 🙂

Because of his Koreanovela Endless Love Winter Sonata, I have fallen in love to South Korea’s culture and picturesque views. I specifically wanted to visit Nami Island where the TV drama was shot.

I haven’t been able to make this dream come true yet but I know someday I will.

A book from your childhood (28th) – The Heir by Kiera Cass

The Heir (The Selection, #4)

I am a proud product of public schools and because I studied in a public school, I cannot remember any book from my childhood because my school have no library back then.

So why did I picked The Heir? It is because fairytales are the stories that I constantly hear when I am growing up. 🙂

Now, what can I say about this book? I am disappointed.

This is not what I am expecting from Kiera Cass who has written a trilogy that left me awake until 5 in the morning because I finished it in just one night.

So there…

I’ll have more updates soon!
