Book Review : The Yellow Light Theory (CJ Cord #1) by RK Buhman



Synopsis : 

CJ knew that his supervisor at the US Attorney’s office in Denver saw him as a malcontent and he was tired of balancing one set of orders from Washington and a second set from the Denver office. He regretted his decision to resign from the Navy and go to work for the US Justice Department. Unhappy at work and at home, he was tired of hiding his real work from his family and friends. CJ was ready for something more while the men in Washington figured out his role and where to put him to work. Better get home, he thought as he pulled out into the street. 

The light turned red and CJ slammed on the brakes, a car flashed by on his left, running the red just as a kid sprinted across the street. Bent over a little, the boy’s head was down and his arms were pumping hard like a sprinter in a forty yard dash. CJ’S heart pounded, sure that the kid would be sent flying on a one way trip, but the car missed him and continued on its way. The few seconds that the scene took to unfold was unnerving. The boy's father, standing on the corner, looked disappointed. It wasn’t fear or shock or the horror a father might feel when his child is nearly killed right before his eyes. His expression portrayed disappointment...why? CJ had an undeniable sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach. Something was not right.

The race is on to secure the energy source and other treasures of the city.

James Cavill and his team of private Special Forces are charged to get there first and secure the treasure for the benefit of all humanity – little do they know what they’ve just walked into…


Crossroads

I am at the crossroads
Standing between roads
Full of doubt at heart
Confusion at mind

Heart is nowhere to go
Unanswered questions
Too many things to do
yet nowhere to start

Life should be alive
No matter what
Survival is a must
It makes life always go on

Whatever I choose
I shouldn't regret it at the end
Road lead to a new path
A life that should be grateful about


Kind regards,

Selene.

Book Review: Bitter Sweet Love


Synopsis: 

This is the collection of Michael Faudet' love and erotic poems.

My review:

This is my favorite of his writings in this book:

I Remember a Time

I remember a time when life was simple

No grand expectations to weigh me down or the drudgery of responsibilities to hold me back. Living the cliche of footloose and fancy-free. A few jangling coins in my pocket for the morning newspaper and just enough notes by the end of the week to throw across a nightclub bar

Book Review : Serenity (Shelby Alexander#1) by Craig A. Hart


Synopsis : 

Shelby Alexander is an aging ex-boxer and retired fixer, whose activities often flirted with the wrong side of the law. Looking for a little peace and a slower pace of life, he moved to Serenity, the small Michigan town where he grew up. But trouble follows men like Shelby, and he finds himself embroiled in an underworld of drugs and violence that may prove to be his undoing. The first book in the new Shelby Alexander Thriller Series, Serenity is an action-packed read with a lovingly rendered cast, witty dialogue, and a main character who doesn't know when to quit.

Review : 

I am glad that I managed to finish this book quickly. I mean sometimes I need several days to finish one book. Thanks for Mr. Hart efficiency for writing short but lovely story. 

My first impression when I read the tittle is this is romance book. But no, it is not quite romance even though there’s romance element in there. This is crime thriller book. And from what I know, it could be series. I have been reading quite long book so when I read short book, it was refreshing. 

The main character is Alexander Shelby. He is nearly 60 years old. Quite unusual for crime thriller book to have an old man as main character. But this won’t be the first and the last one. But according to his background he is former boxer so he is still a fit man despite his age. I know it was very convenient. Someone can call it plot device too. For the story itself, it was quite interesting. I mean very simple for crime thriller. But don’t know why maybe that’s simplicity make it refreshing read. It was easy to be understood. So, that was a plus one. I also like the structure. Make it easy to pause and resume at later time. 

The story flow naturally. I mean there’s not many scene but when there is, it really have an impact. There’s no unnecessary scene. Some people won’t like it but I prefer this over unnecessary action. Despite everything, I still think it could have been better. Because of its short page, we don’t get alternate point of view from other characters. So, beside Alexander, we don’t really understand other people characters. Basically it was quite 2 dimensional. Anyway, I like it because it was a change from my usual reading and it was a good one too.  

My rating : 4 of 5

Angela

Book Review : A Better World (Brilliance #2) by Marcus Sakey


Synopsis : 
The brilliants changed everything.

Since 1980, 1% of the world has been born with gifts we’d only dreamed of. The ability to sense a person’s most intimate secrets, or predict the stock market, or move virtually unseen. For thirty years the world has struggled with a growing divide between the exceptional...and the rest of us.

Now a terrorist network led by brilliants has crippled three cities. Supermarket shelves stand empty. 911 calls go unanswered. Fanatics are burning people alive.

Forget

Forgive and forget
That is formula of life
It takes years to understand
A whole life to make it worth

Forgetful is an option
Ignorant to feel the pain
Keep the faith while life makes us cry
Still smiling to sky each day

Forget what happens yesterday
Forget what happen to us in the past
Have hope for the future
Believe tomorrow will be better than today


Kind regards,

Selene

Film Review : Marauders (2016)



Dear All,
Yesterday, I decide to watch the movie tittled Marauders. To be honest I don't know what film this is. I don't even read the synopsis. It was just a momentary decision. So, I watch it without any expectation. Actually I have conflicting feeling about this film. I mean it's not bad. Actually I really really love it. I just don't really like open ending in this film. This film tell story about robbery case involving Hubert National Bank. It looks like this professional robbers targeted Hubert National Bank not just because of money, but also personal vendetta. This case was investigated by FBI chief (I forgot his exact tittle) named Montgomery. He knows that Hubert (owner of Hubert National Bank) is dirty person. But at the same time, he also doesn't want to justify the robbery and killing to catch Hubert. It was very interesting to see the dilemma that befall Montgomery.

His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

Goodreads Choice Award 2016




Dear all,

Time have passed so quickly. I still remember the day when I quit my job on January 2016 and now it was already the end of year. I still remember most of the time what I did or do not did. Full of up and down. Stop talking about me. Now talking about the end of year, once again it was the time for "Goodreads Choice Award 2016". Every year I try to vote the books in category that I am interested. But now, I am gonna try to vote in every category based on synopsis, rating, cover design, etc. I believe great book should have the complete package. My best friend "Selene" also vote this year. This is the first time she vote on Goodreads and I am really proud of her.  Now, there are many great and interesting books in this award. Some of them have been eliminated in previous round. Whichever book win the award, for me every book is the winner because I can feel the love and hard work from its authors, editors, publishers, reviewers, designer, and other people involved. To date, there's already 3,000,000+ votes and it will keep increasing until the end. The final round voting will last until Nov 28, 2016 (more or less) because I don't live in US so there must be difference in time zone. 

So, for all book readers, you may like or don't like Goodreads Choice Award and it was understandable. But for book readers that want to vote in Goodreads Choice Award, you can go to Goodreads Choice Award 2016. Anyway, please don't take it seriously. Just be yourself and choose the book that you like. Have a nice fun everyone ^^


Regards, 
Angela
