Wedding Cake Murder (Hannah Swenson, #19)Wedding Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Why do I keep doing this to myself? Because I hate myself obviously.. I’m just gonna throw in some ideas because why not?

• Oh right she’s getting married to someone who’s not Mike or Norman.
• Just when you thought that Delores is annoying, the grandma is even worst.
• Oh right there is an attempt with a plot and the food channel thing. (view spoiler).
• No comment on the wedding debacle.
• After being a prude for the last 18 books, this whole PDA thing is just too weird!!!
• The jokes somehow got even worse? “Don’t finish your food because you’re going to eat your words?” – “They’re going to arrest you because you almost killed me with how you made me wait?”
• WHY DOES SHE COMPLAIN SO MUCH ABOUT THE MONEY? You run a business which apparently sells a lot during murder season? Stop complaining about money the whole book!!!
(view spoiler)

The sad thing is: am I gonna read the next book? Probably.. It’s a good for putting me to sleep.. So yeah.. I’m just tired..

Hamilton: The RevolutionHamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I cried a lot during this, just because no matter how much I loved everything surrounding the play, Lin loved it more. This book is an amazing behind the scene look of how everything got together and a love letter from Lin to the cast and the fans.

I’m not throwing away my shot and giving up on the fact that one day, even if it doesn’t look like it, I’ll get to watch them on stage..

One of my 2016 resolutions is to broaden my horizons and stop being so picky about what I read so I took out this Arabic book that I bought from the book fair a couple of years ago, and I tried so hard to give it a chance but when the book doesn’t help itself..

I have 2 main questions: how did this book get published in the first place? And how did it end up selling out that it to get an 8th edition?

And someone explain please:

He implies in half the book that Sara is dead but then we find out she only traveled away?

The niece/friend thing that had the questionnaire, why did she need a guy with a PHD to ask about his love live?

We never heard anything about other girl’s father, the gambler, but suddenly Yosef knows him and got the other guy to pay his debt and he’s out?

And dear god what the hell is wrong with the format of the book? If you’re going to add some English words in your story, at least have the decency to do a spellcheck? It’s paste with an E!

And couldn’t they at least fix it to be the same size as the Arabic text?

I’m sorry but even 1 star is too much for this, I’ve read books more properly plotted on alamuae.

With an hour to go till it’s 2016, I’m finishing up the last few episodes of Angel season 5 and I decided to do a last minute roundup of what a great year it’s been.

Before we divide it up to my 3 favorite parts: Books, movies & TV, let me just give a quick shout out to Hamilton that literally entered my life less than a month ago and now it’s my everything.

Such a good story, such amazing music, perfect cast and if you’re into rap/hip-hop music, you really need to get into it, ok? Just trust me on this..

You know, I like to keep my tone light when it comes to writing for the website, but still attempting to make it coherent and valid enough for people to share with each other and talk about it.

When I say I’ve been a TV addict for more than a decade of my life, people’s first reaction is “that seems like an exaggeration” , because 10 years is apparently not a long enough time for your TV knowledge to be taken serious. Like please, I bingewatched TV shows before the word “bingewatch” became a thing that people (and buzzfeed) like to abuse on daily basis.

Anyway, what I’m trying to establish is TV is my life, yes there is stuff I need to catch up on /cough breaking bad cough/ but I know how iconic it is, so it’s on my never ending list of things to watch.
