Okay. I don’t want to get to the topic right away here but I might lost the fire inside me in writing this post if I don’t get to the topic.
Just a little disclaimer: All the words written here are my own opinions and words. This post was made for me to rant and to release my frustrations. If I ever offended someone in this post, I apologize in advance. And if I somehow triggered you, please leave or unfollow if you like. I would understand.
My gosh! I couldn’t believe how time fly so fast! I miss you Bessies so much! I haven’t been posting because, well, y’all know the reason of why I’m not or rather I couldn’t post any blog posts. I seriously miss blogging.
Anyway, I haven’t finished a lot of books for the last two months of the year 2017. The only book I managed to finish in the month of November was Without Merit by Colleen Hoover. And that’s because I was curious about the book and when I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down anymore.

Know your enemy if you want to survive…
The only way for Khya to get her brother back alive is to kill Varan—the immortal ruler who can’t be killed. But not even Varan knew what he was doing when he perverted magic and humanity to become immortal.
Khya’s leading her group of friends and rebels into the mountains that hold Varan’s secrets, but if risking all their lives is going to be worth it, she has to give up everything else—breaking the spell that holds her brother captive and jeopardizing her deepening relationship with Tessen, the boy who has been by turns her rival and refuge since her brother disappeared. Immortality itself might be her only answer, but if that’s where Khya has to go, she can’t ask Tessen or her friends to follow.
The Marines trained me to set my sights and wait for the shot. For eight years, I guarded my brothers and defended my country. Now I protect my clients. My personal security firm is the best in the business because I leave nothing to chance… until a dark-haired, hazel-eyed spitfire crosses my path.
She and her sexy-as-hell striptease were supposed to be a one-night distraction. But too late I noticed the branding on her back and my blood ran cold. This woman wasn’t a distraction—she was a death sentence.
Knowing who she was left me no choice. I took her on as my client. But running from her past wasn’t an option.
The Marines didn’t train me to retreat. They taught me to engage.
Oh my gosh. It’s been so long since I posted my last monthly wrap up. I’ve been so busy that I hadn’t time to write a wrap up blog post. And I’ve been busy that I only have short amount of time to read. I only have around 30 min to an hour of reading time. And for me, that’s a very short amount of time to read books. Not to mention that sometimes I get disturbed while reading due to chores and other stuff.
So these books are the only ones I managed to finish in my 3 months of busy schedule. If I say so myself, this didn’t even reach my average reads for a month. Dang. I feel so disappointed to myself. But then there’s nothing I can do because studying is my priority right now. I hope I could redeem myself this holiday season because it will also be our holiday break. I hope I could read a lot more then.
