The Secret Circle: The Initiation and The Captive Part I - L.J. Smith

L.J Smith’s books occupy a significant portion of my bookshelf and even though the Vampire Diaries books are very disappointing compared to the show, I like the rest of them especially the Night World series. So, after hearing about the Secret Circle series and the show based on them, I was itching to try them out. I am happy to state that the books, with their witches and magic theme, are quite interesting and I am in the middle of the second book...and enjoying it. The heroine, Cassie Blake, is not that likable due to her weak and mousy nature but I still like her and Adam’s side-romance or the potential for it anyway because Adam is already taken and his girlfriend is Cassie’s best friend! As for the rest of the characters, they’re all pretty mysterious and intriguing especially Deborah and Nick. Faye, the girl you love to hate, is the entertaining factor. All in all, I think the Secret Circle series is way better than the Vampire Diaries books and as soon as I finish with them, I will check out the show...I just hope Adam and Cassie end up together in the end! :D

P.S. I Don't See What All The Fuss Is About...
P.S. I Love You - Cecelia Ahern

Today, I finally read the novel that has been mentioned so many times by so many people and which, according to it's cover, is Cecilia Ahern's BESTSELLING debut novel and I found it...likable enough. That's it. Here's what I loved about the story: Gerry and his heart-melting final letters OF COURSE (which added that special and unique touch to the story). Aside from that, I enjoyed all the scenes with Holly's family in them and I thought her friends, Sharon and Denise, were the bestest and truest friends a girl could have. 

However, the rest of it was not completely satisfying especially the ending where Daniel, the potential love interest, took a complete U-turn after declaring his feelings for Holly. I was unsure whether they would get together in the end but any outcome would have been fine. I just didn't expect him to get back together with his ex-fiance'. Not in a million years. Honestly, throughout the book, I didn't find Daniel himself interesting enough (like Holly). He was BORING so I didn't even feel excited for them to end up together. In short, I did have a good time reading this book and some scenes made me choke up and smile and laugh even BUT all I can say is that I'm glad that this wasn't the first book I read written by Cecilia Ahern!
