Hiccup new adventure when Fishleg wrote a poem
How to Break a Dragon's Heart (Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III #8) - Cressida Cowell

Hiccup in How to train a dragon series has a new adventure. 

 

Fishleg found where he belongs even when he is adopted. 

 

In between is Fishleg has a crush and was sent on a quest. 

 

Toothless is much smaller dragon, dog size and would swallow a lot of things it shouldn't have. 

 

A fun book on Viking dragons with load of drawing and hand-written scripts, ugly one that make it more childlike. The look and feel of this book is so good younger persons would enjoyed it a lot. 

 

The characters development is good and pretty consistent. 

 

Highly recommended for children and adults.

A teen romance... sort of
Turtles All the Way Down - John Green

A girl Aza who has spiral thinking and germaphobic want to get out of her head. She has a best friend who write fan fiction of Star Wars Wookiee Chewbacca.

 

The story starts with a rich man was on the run from the police. The police has a ten thousands dollars reward for clue to find him.

 

Aza knew he man's son Davis. So they pretend to be just happened to be in the area and trying to clue to find the man and get the reward at first. Of course, that's not what they got. Aza starts dating Davis. 

 

The story is kind of sweet as it is into poetry and fan fictions and girl being depressed and couldn't help herself or get away from her though.

 

That's the good part. Even though it is a lot of grey it is still a good read. All John Green's fans would not be disappointed.

Reading progress update: I've read 70 out of 432 pages.
The Fallen (Amos Decker series) - David Baldacci

Amos Decker is adorably miserable when he was ordered to take leave. He didn't have anywhere to go so he followed Alex Jamison and visit ther sister. 

 

So he was just hanging out. The thing I like about Amos is that he was like me, and prefer to hide or get out of the way of the party at a corner, or a balcony or at the back yard. That's what he did.

 

So he talked to a kid who is 6 and then at a flash caused, he saw something. Run across a quiet street and investigate. He crashed the door to go in because he thought he smell something burning and someone might be in trouble.

 

What he found is two dead bodies. 

 

And he called the police. 

 

Not very competent police. Instead of being an opinion from Amos or Alex, the scene was setup so that the cop almost shoot at an FBI agent because he is too trigger happy. 

 

Nice. Amos insert himself to the investigation as he is not confident that the local police could handle this. Even more so if this is not the first two dead bodies but number 5 and 6 in the last few weeks. 

 

Liking it.

How two lovers meet in Summer
Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman

Really nice story about a 17 year old teenager Elio meeting and falling for the house guest Oliver.

 

Teenage boy being romantic, he is Italian, and falling for a young professor who came to live in his house, in his room, to work on his book and helped out with paper work with his father, 

 

They met. They ate together and playing cool at first. The first 100 pages are all about the Elio longer to get to Oliver and afraid of what he would find out with him.

 

The rest of the book picked up quickly on how love came through. It is beautifully written and although there are some sex scenes, they are not really that pornographic. 

 

It reminds us all of youth, of Summer romance, or being bold because one has not learned how to act like an adult yet. 

 

Really enjoyable. This type of book is usually not my cup of tea. And I have enjoyed this a lot. 

 

Solid 4.5 read.

Reading progress update: I've read 121 out of 248 pages.
Call Me by Your Name - André Aciman

Elio is 17 and has hot for the new house guest Oliver. 

 

The first 121 pages are still on how much he wants him. And then dreamed of him being together. 

 

Horny would be a word of choice. Unlike chick-romance, the expression on want and sex is quite honest and out there.

 

It is fortunate that this is well written, or it would read corny as hell. 

 

Oliver is a nice looking and they were in swim suits. 

 

Nice
