I go to school in STYLE.

When I was shopping my clothes for the school year, I told my mom that I don't want any pants or whatsover. I wanted all to be dresses.

And I brought several dresses. I made sure that my New Year's Resoultion is that I'll wear all dresses during whole school year. But, sadly, I failed that resoultion on the first day of the school.


Midnight in the Ruby Bayou by Elizabeth Lowell

WARNING! SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't read Midnight in Ruby Bayou, then you're reading this at a risk.

The cover: That's soooo romantic!! Reddish tint, marsh areas with a large oak (or a weepy willow?) tree. WHOOOOOA. When I first saw it, I thought, "Damn, I'm going to ENJOY it."
And...News flash of the day? I did. :)

The Story: Tad boring in the begninng, but I endured it to reach the most fun of all--the chase and the "awakening of their love for each other" (this wasn't in the book, I just added the quotes to say that ROFL)
But I feel especially sorry for Tiga, who was raped by her own father and bore a daughter. She became insane when she got raped by him. And the guy--he's soooo perverted. He liked the girls when they were "budding," like the book said, when they were starting to develop breasts and starting to grow hips. That, unfournately, gets the old man horny. Horny enough to rape his own daughter and impregnanting her.
But the one that's sooo absurd--Tiga blames herself. Well, it isn't her fault that she was growing. But when she was raped, her father told her that she "flaunt" herself too much. Too much that her own father couldn't help but to rape her.
I wouldn't want that to happen to me.
However, back to the story, Walker is soo handsome!!! He's almost like Ren in some ways: Indingo blue eyes, black hair, golden skin and well toned. Well he has to execrise, because he's, like, Donovan International's bodyguard.
While Faith Donovan rocks with long and tall legs, blonde hair and misty eyes, and everything...they fall for each other.
Of course, when they realized that they loved each other was when Faith got in danger. But Walker wanted her as his lover, not wife until he nearly got killed by the mob guy who wants Faith. After that, he told Faith that he wanted to marry her.

The rating: WHOOOOAAAA 9!!!! Ya'll gonna love it!

Untamed by Elizabeth Lowell

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't read Untamed, then you're reading this at a risk.

WOOOOOOOWWWWW! So good, and it's so good to see a REAL man from the medieval era--not the one that authors tend to create, a glorious--

SHUT UP, Rannie.

The cover: eeeeeep! I looooooooooooooooove the cover, because it's so...real. Just real. I dunno why. :)

The story: Whoa. I love it. Now, I can continue what I was saying when I interrupted myself.
--ruler who is handsome, perfect, generous, thinks that women's equal, and stuffs like that. That's SO fake. But Dominic...Wow. He's even got the ugly nose that men used to have back then. (Even they do today, you can see that in Princes of Wales and men like that) He's got that ugly little moustache that was fad back then, and the oddest thing is that it makes me think that he's handsome. Because of what he is. Well, he's TOTALLY uneducated about women, of course, like men did back then, but after he realized that he truly cared for the lady that he'd married and refused to have sex with until she bleeds, so that he could be sure that she wasn't breeding with her stepcousin before she married him. Yeah, I know, whoa. The stupid thing is that Lady Margaret was STILL a virgin when she married Lord Dominic, but he refused to believe her until they ended up getting too hot in Lady Margaret's Gendruid (did I spell that right?) ancestors' sacred grounds.
Haha...losing her virginity in her ancestors' sacred grounds!! HAHAHA. Well, when Dominic realized that his "sword" was touching her barrier of innocence, he was like, "Oh, my God. All the time, I had to endure the agony to just find out that she's a VIRGIN!!!! Damn, I could've had enjoyed my wedding night!"
But, sorry, Dominic, you're too late! ROFL. At least, Margaret wasn't a whore like the whore you've rescued from Jersualem...did I get that right?...and adorned her with gold.
Well, I'll get you in for a secret: Dominic rescued her, all right, but he never had sex with her, even if he had hots for his wife and needed a relief, he still didn't come to Marie crying, "I need sex, sex, sex."
Howeverrrr, I love the story, because I'm like, "You're so stupid for doing that." at all times. But at least, the story is so reality-like than most of medieval trashy novels did. That's good, right?

Innocent as Sin by Elizabeth Lowell

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't read Innocent as Sin by Elizabeth Lowell, then you're reading this at a risk. :))

WOWWWW!!!! Omg, omg, omg I love her books!!!

Okay, Rannie. Take a deep breath. Don't gush.

Anyway...the cover: The cover, very creepy and it tells me that it isn't just a romantic book, but also something else that I'd love. And guess what?!?!?! I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shut up, Rannie. Now, the story: Whoaaaaaaa. Kayla Shaw...a private banker...has three tattoos?!?! One on her breastbone, another on (as far as I know) her breast, another one at her hip. I mean, seriously. ON HER BOOBS?!?!? Kayla must be at her teens (to do that, she's got to be rebellious at that time) when she got them. But at least her man loves the tattoos. :) Anywayy, Rand McCree isn't a bad guy. In my opinion, anyway. As I know so far, he doesn't have any tattos, unlike with Kayla. And the plot story...I love the part when Rand and Kayla get protective about each's so romantic. At least, Kayla got a man who loves her so much that he would go in a battle shot in his right arm and trying to rescue Kayla from Bertone.
In fact, I doubt that those men who married hot girls would do for their ladies. Unless he really loved his lady. Or when he feels that he's got to prove to her family...anyway, who cares?
But my advice to you is to marry the person who loves you and you loves him/her back. If it is like that, then GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!! Don't wait until too late like Daphne did with Emmett in Switched at Birth on ABC Family!!!! Well, it's Daphne's loss, since Emmett had waited for her for, like, 8 years or something.
Howeverrrrrrr, the begninng was sooo boring!!! But it's worth it to read the fun parts. Simple to say, I love this book.

The RATING!!!: 8.5!!!!! Good book, and I'd love you guys to read it and reread it!! ROFL

Outsider by Diana Palmer

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't read Outsider, then you're reading this at a risk.

OMG!!! It's soooo romantic! I must admit, I enjoy Diana's books so much!

The cover: It's not bad, since Diana's books tend to have cowboys on them. So, I'm not going to comment on the cover.

The story: HAHA!! I love it! Seriously!! I mean, the girl, Bernadette, insulted her father about his lost arm, then called him a man-killer in Apache, and then she forgives him when he tries to be nice to her. So, she's a sweetie. Also she had an ability to prophese terrible things, and she's able to communicate with her father, Colby Lane, just like she phopheses.
Sarina?! FOUR SITCHES!!!! I'm surprised that she managed to love Colby, but then, she loved him already. And so did he. I must say that Sarina and Colby are meant for each other.
Diana somehow matches couples perfectly and seamlessly. So I love this!

The rating: 8, you should read it! :)


Sorry!!!!! I didn't mean to neglect this for sooo long!!

The thing is, I've been so busy going to a camp in New York. Actually, it's in a college. Rochester Institute of Technology. The camp was called TechGirlz, and I built my own computer! It was sooooooo awesome, and I'll never look at desktop computers the same again. -.- I just realized how I had overworked my computer so much, and it still works for me!!! I think computers as human now and forever and ever.

In fact, I suspect that computers will take over the world someday in the future--if we're not careful enough. Yeah, don't believe me, but  I do think so. :) But it probably won't happen during I'm alive--probably my great-great grandchildren, that is.

But don't tell anyone this, but I'm hoping that it'll happen soon--at least, I'll know the outcome--will the humans die and become extinct? Or will the humans overcome the technology (I think that's impossible) and save the world?

Hopefully, the humans are going to die, and so are the computers and technologies, too. At least, we'll give Earth a chance to regain her strength and start over. But no humans this time. :) LOL

However, the camp was more than one week, and I had to endure a flight problem when an attendant forgot that I was deaf, and I was sitting in front of her. She's so dumb. No offense, but I feel so ripped off. I've explained carefully to her that I'm deaf, I CAN'T hear her call for my number, and I'm going to sit in that seat. She nodded, and I rechecked to make sure that she still remembered. She did, and when I went back to read a bit, the next thing I realize was that it was 1 pm and my flight was 12:30 pm. So I asked her where my flight was. She fumbled over for several minutes, and finally admitted to me that she had forgotten all about me. I MISSED MY PRECIOUS FLIGHT BACK TO HOME!!!!!! Thankfully, they rebooked me for free and...

Oh, golly, how I wish that I could forget about that! They brought me to a SPECIAL SERVICES room!!!! I mean, I'm not that needy. All I needed was someone to escort me to my next flight's gate and drop me off. I'll kill two hours there, not in the special services room with teens who looked like they did drugs, or partied hard the night before. Or with people who can't walk or are having a serious nervous breakdown as they're sitting down. It's so freaky.

You'd think that it was freaky, too, because I'm normal and all, and then I'm immediately placed in the "special" area. At least, I get tram to the next gate! I didn't have to walk at all! :) But what sucked was that the security people (they all ABSOLUTELY don't have a lick of fashion sense) looked at me pityingly. Like I was attacked by thousands of cobra snakes and survived it just barely.

Yeah, I'm that "weak." Not. That was sarcasm, FYI.

However, I'm going to review several books today--and all are by Diana Palmer. Let's give it to DIIIIIAAAANAAAA PAAAAALLLLMMMMMEEEEEER!

Eww Moment #1: Mom Thinks He's Cute


My mom just looked at pictures that I took with my digital camera, and I took one of my stepdad, with his tongue out at me. In my opinion, he's totally ugly and gross. Look at his tongue! I mean, who could kiss that tongue!! It sickens me to imagine them together...Doing It. EWWW!!!

And Mom thinks that my stepdad's totally cute. That's totally gross! G.R.O.S.S.

Here's the picture of my stepdad:

Told ya. If you thinks that he's cute or hot, then you're mental. If you think that he's...ugly, gross, or normal--Heaven forbid it--then you're all good.

Sometimes, I Think #1

Sometimes, I think that books are always there for you. Charred by the fire, still there for you, no matter--by pages, by covers, but when with you, they're with you. Soaking wet by the water, still there for you, no matter--by pages, by covers, but when with you, they're with you.

Whenever I feel sad, I run and get Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck--autographed, paperback, and ruined--and cry with it and reread my favorite parts. All that, I feel a lot better and renewed.

Whenever I see a book, I tingle all over. I want to touch it, and know what it has to tell us.

I can always trust a book. I tell them my secrets (not written on the books, just say it to the books) and they'll always keep it. They will never tell a secret.

Books are like my world's best friends. They'll always be there for me forever.

If I'm burdened by a secret or a problem--I turn to any books and tell them the secret or problem. Then I feel unburdened and the book will hold my burden for me until I feel ready to take the burden.

Sometimes,  I think that books are the only one in the world who you could trust.

Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't read Tiger's Quest, then you're reading this at a risk.

Older Version--10 (on the scale of 1-10)

Newer Version-5 (on the scale of 1-10)
Whoa. I love this...but hate this at the same time--I'm scared to know if I'm bipolar or it's just PMS. But the feeling is permaent, so I'm not betting on PMS, but defintiely betting on bipolar disorder. EEEP.

The cover: WHOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAA! This is defintely a predatory look! This is Kishan, and you now know why I liked him. He makes me feel gigglish. Is that even a word? LOL. Again, I liked the older version better than the newer. Again, the wording--it pleases me (not the newer one, it got block letters, eeewww. I meant the older one, and its Hindi-like wording) I'm definitely lovin' it :)
The story: I loved the begninning, and Li! Again, Li is my type. OMG! I love karate guys! Or Marital arts guys! So you could say that I called dibs on Li too. The customs is very interesting, and I like the cultural information from this book. And the fight between Ren and Li--I laughed so hard that I cried! I mean, they both are acting like a teenagers, and I guess, they're still teenagers, in some way. I think that the time Kells and Ren spent together after she chose him was sweet, until the moment that Ren was kidnapped. And the part when Kells started realizing that she loved Kishan, too, I was a little pissed off. I liked it when Kells was together with Ren. At least, I know that Kells truly loved Ren (in love) while she loved Kishan, too, but in different way, I think that the love was almost like too close friends. So I know that Kells would always turn to Ren for true love, and Kishan would be her second choice, but the love between Kells and Kishan isn't as intense or passionate like Kells and Ren.
I love the huge tree part!! It's so cool, and the metallic birds--I'm a little scared of them. I loved the "Noah of the Ark" land, I wish that it was like in the real world. That'd be nice, and I guarantee that we, the humans, would be wiped out. :) The dream stone, I love it! It's almost like an answer to everything, but the answers are in riddles. Kelsey's connection to Ren was so strong, and the last dream that they both shared was bizarre. I loved it when Ren called Kelsey "wife of my heart" and it was his way of letting her know what would happen. His way of letting Kelsey know that, even though if Ren didn't remember Kelsey, he would still love her--no matter what happened.

Actually, I don't agree with Kells's theory about the bad guy (I forgot his name, EEEK!) did that to Ren. I think that Goddess Durga did that to him. In exchange for her protection, Ren must forget about his true love--Kelsey.
I'm right, am I, Colleen Houck? :)

Anyway, when I finished the second book, I cried for an hour!!! AN HOUR! I usually cry for several mintues like I did with My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult, A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I cried for an hour, and that was VERY UNUSUAL.

Congraulations, Colleen Houck, for making the record. :)

Overall rating: 10 MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I must say, for a newbie author like Colleen Houck, I'm impressed with her progress. Tiger Series is her first books, and it's soooooo wonderful!! I'm forever congraulationing Colleen Houck!

Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't read Tiger's Curse, then you're reading this at a risk.

Shh, don't tell anyone that I said this--this is my most favorite series EVER. I know that I said that I'm not supposed to choose between my children, but I can't help but to love this series better.
Older Version: 10 on the scale of 1-10

Newer Version: 3 on the scale of 1-10

The cover: I love it! Instead of showing the main character, like most books do, this showed the guy who has a problem. Somehow, it showed that Kelsey Hayes's not completely the main character. It showed that she's a main character, but don't forget about Dhiren and Kishan, too. They're main characters, too. The cover is so beautiful that I couldn't stop staring at it! OMG. One thing is, I liked the old cover better than the newer one. The newer one is a little uglier than the older one. EEEP. I love the title's font!! It's like Hindi's words, but written in English with Hindi's style! LOVE IT.

The story: I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it! I couldn't stop reading it. I feel like it's classic. :) I couldn't get tired of a part of the story--it's all good! One thing, though, Kelsey, you're willing to go to a strange place with a stranger guy? If I were her, I would go, but, hey, I have no common sense. But that's only one thing that I dislike about the story. The rest--all good. I loved the part when Kelsey ignored Ren in the underground kingdom, and he exploded. I laughed! I mean, I know that it's wrong of her to do that--I wouldn't do that!--but, somehow, imagining it makes me laugh.
And Ren--he's soooo hot!! He's definitely my type. Cobalt blue eyes, golden/bronze skin, black hair that's tousled and stopped at nape...ooh, I'm getting tingly! He's everything that I would dream of a guy. Romantic, a poet, he can play a guitar, and you see the big picture. I called my dibs on him. :)
Kishan...He's my type, too, sadly. I imagine that he's like Ren's twin, but the only difference is his eyes, which is golden, and his cocky attitude. I hate cocky guys, but the way that Colleen Houck described him makes me tingly too! I like the guy who would wrestle me and play rough with me (not so rough like a broken nose!) So you could say that I called dibs on him too.
And, Kelsey! She's like my twin! You could see that by my profile picture, she looks like me. (I don't know about her nose, but mine is little pug-nosed.) We both are not skinny or too chubby. We're average-type. And oliver tan skin. Oh, and the eyes! We both have same eyes. We both have the same hair (well, almost same) Hers is wavy and brunette, while mine is wavy and curly and brunette. Our hair would frizz and are easy to go out of the control. We both are bookworms. So, I would say that we're almost like twins--but the age. Damn, the age! She's seventeen and I'm thirteen. UGH!
The ending, I hated and loved it. Kelsey was stupid to leave him, but I had to agree with her on that. I mean, she's average, while Ren's ultra-above-average guy. He's like a god. He's so perfect (and flawed, of course) and I'd think that, once the curse's broken, he'd attract lot of girls and he'd probably dump me for a hotter, sexier woman. I would protect my heart, like Kelsey tried. Ren's broken howl--I wouldn't have heard it, because I'm Deaf and all, but if  I were hearing and I heard that, I'd bawl my eyes out in front of Mr. Kadam!

Overall rating: 10 IT'S A MUST READ. I've recommended it to over hundreds of people to read it--and they read it. They loved it. I love it. Tiger's Curse, I have a terrible news for you--you're never getting rid of me! :)

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't read Crescendo, then you should read it before reading this. If you haven't, then you're reading this at a risk.

Oh, my gosh. This sequel is out of the control. Break up with Patch, and everything. Some things I would do the same, but some things I wouldn't have done. However, let's start reviewing!

The cover: OMG I LOVE THE SYMBOLISM OF THE COVER. Rain=tears, or sadness. This story is definitely sad. A feather that Nora's dropping= breaking up with Patch. And look at the girl's face. What did she look like? Yes, sad. It's very symbolic. So I love the cover. It suits with the story plot of this sequel.

The story: What's wrong with Nora?!?! I mean, she broke up with Patch, crying over him at almost all times, and she's flirting with Scott. Seriously. I admit, I would do the same thing. But. Oh, well, never mind! And Nora, PLEASE stop putting yourself in danger. I know that she's doing it so that she could be saved by Patch, but...doesn't she have a lick of sense? And the thing with Scott--I don't know about him, I think that if I knew him, I would get it over with, sneak around in his home and find out about him and leave. And the splat that Nora had with Scott--I would have just gotten the knife and threatened him. More likely take a stab at him, but I think that what Nora did was better than what I would have done. If I did what I said that I did, it's a guarantee that I'd get killed before Rixon and Vee gotten there.
And, Rixon, seriously?!?! I always thought him as a good guy, and at the ending, I must say that Becca did a good job of keeping Rixon in the shadow. And the memory that Nora'd discovered from Rixon--I never suspected about that Rixon had to be there to see the memory. I just thought, 'Oh, crap. Patch is the criminal--whoa, wait! Rixon?!?!' So, I congraulate Becca on shocking me to my early grave.
And the cliffhanger!! This one got a CLIFFHANGER!!! I'm superexcited about the cliffhanger. I love cliffhangers, it makes me want to scream. I wonder what happened next? Can't wait...

Overall rating: 9.5, this story keeps on getting better and better as I read on. Silence, you'd better not disappoint me...

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT. There's going to be some spoilers, if you haven't read Hush, Hush, then read this at a risk.

I love it. Simply love it. Something about the book makes me love it. It makes sense, because it's about fallen angels, and I'm starting to be attracted to fallen angels or angels recently. It seems to me like I'm starting to read all books that's about angels. LOL. Anyway, since I love it, I'm gonna tell you guys why I love it.

The cover: OMG OMG!! I'm like, "Oooh, I'm going to love it!" when  I saw the cover. I mean, the cover has a very strong symbolism; and since I love dark colors, it has black and gray in there. So I'm loving it. When I saw it at my friend's house, I immediately begged her to loan it to me. The cover said it all. There's going to be angels and fallen angels. There's going to be romance in there. There's going to be blood and feuds. and many things like that. Oh, and it said that you'll love it.
The way the cover showed was bizarre. I wouldn't have thought of it, and that showed unqiueness.

The story: It's a must read. When I read it, I'm like, "Oh! I'm not going to read anymore. No, no I'll not read it! No! No!" and then I'll close it for a second and open it and continue. When I finished, I was silent. With happiness, too, but also shocked.
I mean, what's going to happen? I wanna more!!! LOL
I loved the ending, when they both kissed happily. That's a good ending. I'm disappointed about one thing, though. No cliffhanger.
The mind trick thing?!?! I mean, that's TOTALLY freaky! I don't wanna that happen to me! I would have felt violated if that happened to me.
If I had a guy like Patch, I would have loved him immediately. But Nora was right to suspect him. I mean, he's mysterious and hot and all, but what's inside him? Who is he exactly? I would do the same thing Nora did. So I'm on Nora's side.

Overall rating: A MUST READ!! 9 on the scale 1-10. I guarantee that you'll love it. :)
