    Book Review: The Godfather by Mario Puzo

    Definitely one of the greatest and well known franchise. I honestly don’t know where to start in this review of The Godfather. I just feel that the novel is too awesome and legendary to be critiqued. The movie was excellent, if that word tops ‘great’. But the book is even better! The book gave so much importance to each of the important characters in every chapter, thus making the situation or event even more easier to understand.

    Book Review: Alexander and Alestria by Shan Sa

I kind of need to brush up on my historical knowledge a bit, I sort of forgotten a lot about him from my history class.

    Book Review: Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen

    “My heart stopped. It just stopped beating. And for the first time in my life, I had that feeling. ” -Juli I got to read this book after my good friend Chase lent me a copy. The copy was not his, but perhaps he knew that I’m quite of a bookworm and probably he figured that it was a must read, that was why he insisted that I borrow it. I accepted the book anyway and started reading it. Here’s the plot overview from Goodreads.com Flipped is a romance told in two voices. The first time Juli Baker saw Bryce Loski, she flipped. The first time Bryce saw Juli, he…
