Weekend Haiku's

Like a dry desert
I soak in your immense love
Now completely drenched

You curl next to me 
And fall asleep to the calm
That only I bring 

(Too gud Khairu, (patting my back) )

Review: Cover of Night by Linda Howard

Title: Cover of Night

Author: Linda Howard

Year Published: June 2006 

Why did u get this audio book?  Cuz I liked her previous novels. "Now You See Her", "After The Night", "Kiss and Tell", "Killing Time" and to sum extent "Kiss While I sleep".

Did u like the cover?  I loved it.  I wanted to read a romantic novel this week.

Did u enjoy the book?  Gud question. Hmmm .. not at all. LH books a like playing lottery. Sumtimes u'll win big and sumtimes u get pissed off. M glad I didn't READ this one. I thought it to be a romantic novel, full of passion, love. But it was nuthing like the cover. It was more of bad guys. I think she needs to do more research. The book is a bit enjoyable when it cums to Cal and Kate romance but hasn't been described in deep. I was looking for more. 

Are u keeping it or passing it on?  Can't wait to drop it in library. 

Anything else?  I've read a lot of comments and reviews after finishing the book and majority of ppl agrees that this wasn't LH greatest book. It's still quite good and superior to some other reads, but because it doesn't reach the high standard that LH has set with her previous books.

Poet in Me

Someone Special 

Looking for a face so similar,
Sad to say it isn't here,
Wish so much to be near,
With the one whose very dear.
Starring at the sky so far,
Hoping the hours to be closer,
When u n I r together,
Sharing laughs, sentiments, feelings with each other.
Like a gem, ur so rare,
Hard to get just anywhere,
Precious bond needs lots of care, 
Losing u will make me scared.

Book Talk

I had a moment when my books talked to each other. Does this happen to you? Do you have any idea what m talking about? Let me explain. No, no its not too long. Let me sum up .. haha !!

I was reading two book at a time. 

"How to live: Or a life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts At an Answer by Sarah Bakewell which is fascinating and a really interesting way to present a biography of Michel de Montaigne. BUT the salient point for this post is that I learned from this book that Montaigne’s actual family name was Eyquem and that his family bottled wine under that name, including his father, Jean Marie.

Now comes the talking…

I was also reading, "A Discovery of Witches: A Novel by Deborah Harkness in which a 1500 year old vampire introduces a bottle of Eyquem wine to his witch girlfriend and says, “Jean Marie gave it to me himself.” o_O I almost dropped my bag of Bugles snacks.

If I hadn’t been reading the first book, I wouldn’t have had any idea what good ole Matthew was on about in the second book. Boy did I feel super smart right about then, let me tell you.

This ever happen to you?

Review: Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood

Title : Sweet Talk 
Author: Julie Garwood
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: 7th August 2012


Attorney and IRS agent Olivia Mackenzie is the kind of tough, wise-cracking, powerful woman fans expect from a Garwood protagonist—but this time she has outdone herself. Olivia is not just any woman, she is every woman; flawed in the familiar ways so many of us are. 

On the trail of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, one that threatens to ruin the lives of naïve and unsuspecting victims, Olivia suddenly finds her own life is in danger after she asks questions of the wrong people. She is accustomed to fighting for the underdog, but being vulnerable herself is a very different story. Smart enough to know when enough is enough, Olivia calls for reinforcements. 

When she meets FBI Agent Grayson Kincaid there is an immediate and obvious attraction, palpable on both sides. Together they make an excellent team to fight corruption but Olivia is also fighting the immediate and intense attraction she feels for Agent Kincaid, and that may be a battle she is bound to lose.

My thoughts on this: 

Sweet Talk is both hot romantic fiction and a great mystery read for all those who love these genre of storytelling. Olivia MacKenzie, innocently, goes for a job interview and ends up assaulted, nearly shot, and in the middle of an FBI investigation. If there’s one good thing that comes from this whole fiasco, it’s meeting Grayson Kincaid – and incredibly sexy FBI agent that becomes more determined than ever to protect Olivia from the myriad threats against her. Grayson is a picture perfect hero. He’s kind, rich, sensitive, focused, took on responsibility for his nephew and smart as hell. He even tries to remove himself from the case when he gets involved with Olivia. In fact, he’s a little too perfect, and it doesn’t allow him to have the depth that would really let me get to know him. Olivia on the other hand is a bundle of personality, and along with her best friends – the four Pips – I really connected with her. Surviving cancer, and a grueling ordeal at a very young age explains a lot about grown-up Olivia’s decisions, thoughts and her determination to see things set right. Sometimes she would seem to rush into some situations without regard to the safety of it, and it nearly resulted in serious consequences. I understood her need for independence, but there comes a point when she just became stubborn – at the expense of her own and others safety.

One of the things I appreciated most about Sweet Talk was the way that their friendship developed throughout the book. The downside of that was that I never really felt the chemistry of a relationship, or a true desire to have one with each other. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a well-built relationship, just missing an indefinable something that I can’t quite place.

The suspense storyline was pretty straight-foward, with no unseen twists, and the “villains” telegraphed themselves from nearly the first instance. They also tend to be more than a bit cardboard, without any real depth and seeming to do things because they could, and they were bad. I questioned quite a lot of their actions. Underlying that though is the part that kept me turning the pages to get to the resolution – Olivia’s friend, Jane, is back in the hospital. Has the cancer returned? Will she survive? I was very much invested in Olivia and her friends.

All in all, Sweet Talk is a quick, good read. Ms. Garwood's writing beautifully emerges you in the story, and I look forward to trying more by her.

Time Vs Money

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?”
DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?” replied the man.
SON: “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?” the man said angrily.
SON: “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?”
DAD: “If you must know, I make Rs.100 an hour.”
SON: “Oh,” the little boy replied, with his head down.
SON: “Daddy, may I please borrow $25 ?”

The father was furious, “If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room.The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $5 and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.” Are you asleep, son?” He asked.
“No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy. “I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier” said the man. Here’s the $5 you asked for.”

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. “Oh, thank you daddy!” He yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father. “Why do you want more money if you already have some?” the father grumbled.”Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied.

“Daddy, I have $25 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?
Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.”

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

Time is more valuable than money. You can get back the money but not the time. Time for family, kids, marriage, make them smile, smile for them, do things that makes u happy, do sumthing for them, build memories .. These r things in life that money can't buy. A reminder to all of us working so hard in life. Do not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.
