sorry for the lack of posts! It's really haven't been my intentions to neglect my blog... and I've been telling myself since Monday to update it... it's just that I'm in a weird mood - no books in my TBR pile is screaming at me to be read and so, instead, I've been re-reading books... most of them are books taht I've already reviewed ^^; so yeah, not much to say LOL :)
I got an answer for optometry school which was also a NO... so now, yeah... well I was expecting it, since it's harder to get into optometry than pharmacy... so let see, I have wasted approx. 250$ on applications this year... is it me only, but I find it hella expensive! Ah well, it was probably my last time applying anyway. Now, I'm going to concentrate on my career - which means finding a better job and perhaps take some evening classes of some kind. Life sucks LOL :)
Aside from that, my life has been pretty normal and boring :P I think I'm going to have to find some activities to do, aside from reading ^^; By the way, my new obsession du jour is: Nodame Cantabile!!! It is an ongoing manga in Japan, which has been adapted into an 11-episodes Live Action Dorama (i.e. tv series) and also, into an anime. It's very funny! Basically, it's the story of Chiaki Shinishi, who's a talented music student, whose dream is to become an orchestra conductor. Only problem is that he's afraid of both planes and boats, so that means he's pretty much stuck in Japan... which is not the greatest place to learn music or become a professional. His latest piano teacher has given up on Chiaki and now, he's stuck with a new teacher who already has a weird student: Nodame. Nodame has a lot of talent, but lack discipline... and the story is about how both come to make their dreams come true. It's really funny and entertaining... so fans of manga, you should try it out. If you want, the live action has been subbed in english... just send me a message and I'll send you the link (you can watch it on the net).
I've actually lied earlier ^^; I have read some new books in addition to my re-read. I've read: Legacy of Lies by JoAnn Ross (an oldie), The Duke's Proposal by Leslie Lafoy and Jacob by Jacquelyn Franks. I'll be reviewing Legacy of Lies and The Duke's Proposal very soon... while Jacob's review will be a buddy review with Ames, posted on Twisted Kingdom. Aside from that, I have been re-reading a lot... went through: Slave to Sensation and Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh, Demon Angel by Meljean Brooks, re-read Jacob ^^; and I'm in the process of re-reading the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik. So yeah, there'll be some reviews.
by the way, I have a favor to ask from everyone!!!! I've been looking for this book: Down By the River by Robyn Carr! It's part of a trilogy... and I was able to hunt the first book down, Ames found book 2... but neither of us can find this last book. I was wondering if someone could look at their UBS... cos I can't order it and can't even find on ebay! I would be really appreciated!
Finally, but not last:
HAPPY BELATED MOTHER'S DAY!!!
