Do not judge a book by it's cover
The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,Richard Howard

Just read this yesterday and I think my heart came together just to break and come back. It was amazing. Do not judge the book by it's cover. The front illustration and size of the book seems like it was for a child but the story is nothing like. The ending was making me sobbing and.... usually I write detailed reviews but I don't wanna give anything away. My advice: just read it.

French Kiss - Sarra Manning 3.5 stars.

Aaaah. Teenage love and all that sha-la-la's. The giddy feeling of first love, the devastating acknowledgement of the unrequited feelings and mooning over someone so out of your league, or so you thought. I enjoyed reading this and I am on that light romance mood sans too much dramatics of being broken and angst... although the petty teenage angst is present, I really liked it. I got tired of too much dramatics, I put a lot of novels on hiatus, I'm actually half way the story then decided to read something light and this, this is just the right story to read.

Since the author disclosed that it was a magazine story, it reminded me of Candy's (a teen magazine here in the Philippines) Katie's diary which I have loved, by the way, to the point that I purchased back issues just to read the previous stories I haven't read yet before the September 05 issue...and read some of it in the Candy website. I am that obsessed with the story back then. Heh. So, anyway...I am looking forward with Manning's next diary entries. I actually loved Manning's You Don't Have to Say You Love Me because I really liked and sort of relate with the characters she makes--the awkwardness, insecurities, sassy mouth snd all that. Yep. Right book at the right mood and time.

French Kiss (Diary of a Crush, Book 1)
French Kiss - Sarra Manning This book is a little guilty pleasure for me. A fantastic start to the Diary of a Crush series.

Although it's been years since I first read of Edie and Dylan (almost a decade!) I still think back to this book - well, this series - and wonder about the characters and re-imagine the situations.

It's a slightly fluffy story, very teenagery and fun. And frustrating. If there is anything frustrating in this book then it's Edie and Dylan for the majority of this book. He treats her like crap and she lets him, so long as he kisses her again. But it's not as poisonous as it sounds, it actually works. They're both growing up and getting a grip on who they want to love.

Who is your art-boy Dylan? Pictures please!

I have to go and find my own boy now. I need a kiss.

Canon Alberic's Scrap-Book - M.R. James How to identify a master of the ghost story: he can really put you out with the simple words "he was more comfortable with a wall at his back." Brilliant.
