BLOGGED: A GAME OF THRONES
Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you. — A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge. — A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

culottedamsel asked: Hi! Where did you bought the 50 shades trilogy?
Hi! I actually read the e-books. If you like I can send them to you. I think the paperbacks are now available in local bookstores. :)

What did it feel like, I wondered, to love someone that much? So much that you couldn’t even control yourself when they came close, as if you might just break free of whatever was holding you and throw yourself at them with enough force to easily overwhelm you both. — This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
Holding people away from you, and denying yourself love, that doesn’t make you strong. If anything, it makes you weaker. Because you’re doing it out of fear. — This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
You know, when it works, love is pretty amazing. It’s not overrated. There’s a reason for all those songs. — This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and that a soft landing is never guaranteed. — This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot. — This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
Love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone’s bad qualities because they somehow complete you. — This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn’t mess around. After all, she’s learned all there is to know from her mother, who’s currently working on husband number five. But there’s something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy’s rules. He certainly doesn’t seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can’t seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy’s starting to understand what those love songs are all about?
My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥
I liked it but not as much as The Truth About Forever which is one of my favorites from the author. The book of course has the usual elements of Sarah Dessen’s novels - girl with some issues about her family or friends, then she meets the boy who she will fell in love with, or will help her get over those issues. Same, same. But what I liked about this one is that it’s an interesting read and it actually helped me cope with some things.
When I started reading this, I was having some issues with things (school, lovelife, etc.). So when I get to know Remy it’s like I want to be like her. Just carefree, mean, has control over her feelings. But then, it’s not easy being like her. When you have too much control over your feelings, you tend to ignore other people’s feelings and you become selfish and insensitive. Sometimes you have to open up with the possibility that when you care and love someone, you will get hurt. It’s better than feeling nothing at all and losing that someone.
The romance part of this book is lacking. I liked Dexter’s challenges, although sometimes I can’t figure out his personality. Overall, this was an easy read and just like other Dessen books, you get to learn something about love and life. :)
don’t you hate it when you’re reading a chapter and then it’s coming to its climax and omg what’s gonna happen, then woops, your eyes dart to the last line and you spoil yourself and hate yourself for it
