Missing Heart

An eerie blanket of silence wrapped the courtroom. The accused stood, confidently, without a trace of remorse on his rather innocence eyes.

Without reading the grim report of a young married woman who went missing, then body parts being discovered one by one– legs, arms, head– none can even guess the suspect would be a youthful teenager. Until he confessed and surrendered and then plead not guilty.

“I thought I am guilty of killing her, but I am not. I did not kill her. I just took back what she said is mine before she married that stupid man.”

No one tried to speak.

“Her heart is mine, and will forever be mine. I buried it under the logs beside my home, our could have been home.  I gave her back to the world who never dared to accept us. I only kept her heart. What is wrong with that?”

Book Review: A Murder Is Announced by Agatha Christie

A Murder is Announced

“It’s what’s in yourself that makes you happy or unhappy.”

45th – A Murder Is Announced (Miss Marple, #5) by Agatha Christie

Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ (BEST, GREAT read!)

What is it about: Villagers expect a fun game after a Gazette announcement of murder, but when lights flash off, shots ring out, and a masked burglar falls dead, the Inspector and vicar’s wife Bunch call in expert Miss Jane Marple. Was Swiss hotel clerk Rudi framed? Miss Letitia Blackstone houses scatty Dora, cousins Julia and Patrick, gardener widow Phillipa, and paranoid cook Mitzi.

What I Love: Madame Agatha Christie is one beautifully twisted writer. You can never ever know who kills who. She is the best example why I love mystery and crimes. The tension, the suspense, the revelation! Geez!!

What I Don’t Love Much: Nothing!

Wise Words: “…what people do see at a moment of intense excitement and nervous strain. What they do see and, even more interesting, what they don’t see.”

“…if you have pain, you know how to enjoy the exquisite pleasure of the times when pain stops.”

“One is alone when the last one who remembers is gone.”

Book Review: Room by Emma Donoghue

Room

“Scared is what you’re feeling. Brave is what you’re doing.”

41st – Room by Emma Donoghue

Rating: ❤❤❤❤ (Good read, definitely!)

What is it about: To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it’s where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it’s not enough…not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son’s bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, Room is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.

What I Love: With a unique theme, a unique storyteller, a unique set-up, this is indeed an epic read.

The characters will intrigue you and will make you root for them.

It is one heart hitting reads.

What I Don’t Love Much: The end becomes a bit confused.

Wise Words: “Everybody’s damaged by something.”

“People don’t always want to be with people. It gets tiring.” 

“Stories are a different kind of true.”

Book Review: Curse Breaker: Enchanted

Curse Breaker: Enchanted

“A fall doesn’t break you.”

58th Curse Breaker: Enchanted by Melinda Kucsera

Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ (BEST, GREAT read!)

What is it about:  Secrets threaten, but magic kills.

Plagued by sanity-twisting magic, Sarn must unravel a deadly mystery. But he’s prevented at every turn because his life is not his own. Haunted by one of the victims, Sarn must find out what happened before the ghost drives him mad.    

As plans collide beneath ensorcelled boughs, one thing is certain. If Sarn can’t get his magic under control, he’ll never discover why enchanted trees committed murder. How far is he willing to go to find the answer?

The search might cost more than his sanity. Exposing the truth might claim his life and destroy the secrecy protecting his son from a killer. Something lurks in the enchanted forest and its sights are set on Sarn and the magic in his blood.  

First in a new series, Curse Breaker: Enchanted is a fast-paced, character-driven fantasy tale with a murderous twist. Sarn’s story unfolds over three action-packed days in his double life leading to a breathtaking finale.

What I Love:  This book is made of love. A kind of love which has transcended and was honed by time. A kind of love you will feel oozing out each and every beautifully-crafted line.

You will feel it as you read each chapter, as the characters were introduced, as the twists and turns were unveiled.

The plot, the setting, the characters are concrete. The descriptions are both enchanting and vivid. The big revelation caught me (pleasurably) off guard!

As a poetic fangirl, the internal rhymes and the haunting warnings written as poems are a true delight.

It is also no secret that I love Sarn, no matter how mad and insane he is, and his adorable son Ran. Their moments together in this book are almost always heart tugging.  This will lead me to my most loved part of this book….

It is indeed an epic fantasy, but it also captured both the beauty and the chaos of reality and humanity.

The struggle of a single father, the innocent love of a child, the hardships of someone illiterate, the depth of hurt of friendship betrayed, the injustices and so much more were all tackled in this novel.

It’s a lengthy read worth your time. And the cliffhanger ending will make you want to know more.

What I Don’t Love Much: This is about me and not about the author. I am not so fan of big words (because English is not actually my native tongue). For several times, I searched some words in the dictionary to be sure I got the meaning right. (facepalm)

Wise Words:  “People tended to give the religious and the crazies a wide berth. :

“A fall doesn’t break you.”

“We prevent the tragedies we can and mourn the ones we can’t. You have to let it go. Obsessing over what happened will drive you crazy, but it won’t bring them back. Nothing you do can bring them back. You can’t turn back time. You can’t undo yesterday or the day before. Let them go.”

Porous: A Palette*

Pile of pans and plates
all dried-dirt-kissed,
beside untouched
porous sponge.

Dripping faucet,
says tap, tap, tap.
Below rusted sink
mice munch, munch, munch.

Blood-bathed body,
lifeless eyes wide open.
Silently decays,
alone, badly broken.

Book Review: The Ice Twins by S.K. Tremayne

“…the death of those we love is so much worse than our own death, and yes all love is a form of suicide, you destroy yourself, you surrender yourself, you kill something in yourself, willingly, if you really love.” — S.K. TremayneThe Ice Twins


33rd – A book that takes place on an island  – The Ice Twins by S.K. Tremayne

Rating: ❤❤❤❤(Good read, definitely!)

What is it about: A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, dies in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcraft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives.

But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity—that she, in fact, is Lydia—their world comes crashing down once again.

As winter encroaches, Angus is forced to travel away from the island for work, Sarah is feeling isolated, and Kirstie (or is it Lydia?) is growing more disturbed. When a violent storm leaves Sarah and her daughter stranded, Sarah finds herself tortured by the past—what really happened on that fateful day one of her daughters died?

What I Love: The mystery that kept me guessing until the end. The creative way of how the reality was told. This kind of book clutches you and will not let go until you are done.

What I Don’t Love Much: The characters itself. The crazy parents. But yeah, they are the reason why this is one insane yet great read.

Wise Words: “because sometimes saying nothing says it all.”

“It’s not so much my own death that is intolerable, it’s the death of those around me. Because I love them. And part of me dies with them. Therefore all love, if you like, is a form of suicide.”

Book Review: Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson

“We’re constantly changing facts, rewriting history to make things easier, to make them fit in with our preferred version of events,” – S.J. WatsonBefore I Go to Sleep.


29th – Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson

Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ (Good read, definitely!)

What is it about: As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child, thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me…

Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love–all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.

Welcome to Christine’s life.

What I Love: It kept me guessing until the end. It’s one engrossing read.

What I Don’t Love Much: There are parts that are a bit boring.

Wise Words: We’re constantly changing facts, rewriting history to make things easier, to make them fit in with our preferred version of events. We do it automatically. We invent memories. Without thinking. If we tell ourselves something happened often enough we start to believe it, and then we can actually remember it.

Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone

Every Last Word

About: Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can’t turn off.

Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn’t help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she’d be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam’s weekly visits to her psychiatrist.

Caroline introduces Sam to Poet’s Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more “normal” than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the Train

About: EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

UNTIL TODAY
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Kindred Spirits

About: If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she’s not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels.

In an attempt to recapture a sense of her pre-married life, she rekindles her passion for writing, determined to find her own voice again.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane

About: A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn’t thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she’d claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.

Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper and resonated in unimaginable ways. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie—magical, comforting, wise beyond her years—promised to protect him, no matter what.

That’s Jess’s life in a nutshell—until an unexpected knight-in-shining-armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess’s knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages… maybe ever.

The Small Backs of Children by Lidia Yuknavitch

The Small Backs of Children

About: In a war-torn village in Eastern Europe, an American photographer captures a heart-stopping image: a young girl flying toward the lens, fleeing a fiery explosion that has engulfed her home and family. The image wins acclaim and prizes, becoming an icon for millions—and a subject of obsession for one writer, the photographer’s best friend, who has suffered a devastating tragedy of her own.

As the writer plunges into a suicidal depression, her filmmaker husband enlists several friends, including a fearless bisexual poet and an ingenuous performance artist, to save her by rescuing the unknown girl and bringing her to the United States. And yet, as their plot unfolds, everything we know about the story comes into question: What does the writer really want? Who is controlling the action? And what will happen when these two worlds—east and west, real and virtual—collide?

We Are Called to Rise by Laura McBride

We Are Called to Rise

About: An immigrant boy whose family is struggling to assimilate. A middle-aged housewife coping with an imploding marriage and a troubled son. A social worker at home in the darker corners of Las Vegas. A wounded soldier recovering from an injury he can’t remember getting. By the time we realize how these voices will connect, the impossible and perhaps the unbearable has already happened. We Are Called to Rise is a boomtown tale, in which the lives of people from different backgrounds and experiences collide in a stunning coincidence. When presented the opportunity to sink into despair, these characters rise. Through acts of remarkable charity and bravery, they rescue themselves. Emotionally powerful yet tender and intimate, We Are Called to Rise is a novel of redemption and unexpected love.

18th – A book that’s under 150 pages – Kindred Spirits 

Kindred Spirits

What is it about: If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does.

Rating: 💖 💖 💖 (Good read)

19th – A book you haven’t read since high school – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice

What is it about: Since its immediate success in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language. Jane Austen called this brilliant work “her own darling child” and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, “as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print.” The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilized sparring. And Jane Austen’s radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.

What I Love: The dialogues, the way it was written. The subtle comedy hidden between some serious-looking lines.

What I Don’t Love Much: I cannot say. Maybe classics are just not my cup of tea.

Wise Words:

“The power of doing anything with quickness is always prized much by the possessor, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance.”

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!”

Rating: 💖 💖 💖 (Good read)

20th – A book set in Europe – After You (Me Before You, #2) by Jojo Moyes

After You (Me Before You, #2)

What is it about: Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started.

Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future. . . .

What I Love: Jojo Moyes’ skillful tugs-the-heart storytelling prowess remains. I still shed a few tears while reading the last chapters.

What I Don’t Love Much: The problem with sequels is that they can never, ever top the first book. While After You is actually good, Me Before You is not just better, it’s Moyes’ best (for me).

Wise Words:

“Too many people follow their own happiness without a thought for the damage they leave in their wake.”

“The only way to avoid being left behind was to start moving.”

21st – A book that’s becoming a movie this year – The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the Train

What is it about: Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

What I Love: Everything!
The creepy prologue.
The three-view and all-engrossing overlapping storytelling.
The several thought-provoking red herrings.
The sudden surprising twist and turns.
The intricate details unravelling softly like a flower getting rid of its layers of petals slowly..
The unexpected ending.
Again, everything!

What I Don’t Love Much: Yep! Nothing!

Wise Words:

“Life is not a paragraph, and death is no parenthesis.”

“…let’s be honest: women are still only really valued for two things—their looks and their role as mothers. I’m not beautiful, and I can’t have kids, so what does that make me? Worthless.”

Homecoming

143 02 February 14th 2016

After I tried living in that stinky city fogged with asthma-inducing smoke for two long years, I am finally back to my bucolic peaceful home.

I regret leaving, because apparently no one noticed that I left, no one knew why I left.

No one was able to figure out how I successfully chopped her into pieces, and how  I intricately buried her lovely doll-like parts around that rhino-ranch.

I thought that would be my shining moment! But it wasn’t!

In fact, her endearing lovely head remained lost. Well, I still have them, preserved in the best way that I could.

I am not back to give it back, though.

I am back because it’s time to look for her companion.

I hope this time my great skills will be known!
