#BookReview: Cinder

Cinder

"You have an unusual magnetic personality." Cinder 5 stars Pros: A new kind of fairy tale retelling Smart and spunky protagonist Introduction of new races and interweaving of other fairy tale characters Cons: Changes the fairy tale quite a bit, especially the ball It’s been a long time since I’ve invested in a series, but The Lunar Chronicles is an excellent group of books to read. I’ve seen Cinder around but didn’t get to it on my TBR list because of the time … [Read more...]

Foodie Friday: Peach Green Tea

Well, since I'm a frequent visitor to the hospital now, I've made a nesting spot in the local Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. My latest taste from their menu includes... Peach green tea: green tea with fruity sweetness Typically, I prefer my tea plain. However, Tea Leaf offers a number of combinations. I decided to try the peach flavor. I did like the look of the peach cubes in the tea bag (see above)! It was nice to have a change where there's a subtle sweetness and flavor of fruit to contrast … [Read more...]

#BookReview: Every Soul a Star

every soul a star

“You will live a long, prosperous life.” Every Soul a Star  5 stars Pros: Science made interesting Different perspectives True teen voices Cons: May be too sweet for some I really enjoyed Every Soul a Star. Since I recently saw the solar eclipse, I had to check out this read. I love how Mass incorporated scientific facts in this book. Every Soul is a slow, thoughtful read. Some people might find fault with that (see my con above), but I found it refreshing. … [Read more...]

#BookReview: Warcross

warcross

"Never do anything halfway." Warcross by Marie Lu  5 stars Pros: Fascinating technology Mysterious antagonist Smart and independent Asian main character Intriguing love interest Cons: Easily guessed the antagonist I absolutely loved Warcross. I’m a big fangirl of Marie Lu ever since she exploded on the scene with the Legend series. Yes, there are some single titles within her two series (Legend; Young Elites) that I don’t enjoy as much. Overall, though, I love … [Read more...]

Foodie Friday: Cheese Katsu

cheese katsu

Cheese katsu: panko-crusted meat with a cheesy inside I've had katsu before, those deep-fried pieces of meat. My personal preference is for chicken. However, I decided to try out this new dish, cheese katsu. Yes, it was pork, so the meat felt thicker and tougher. However, there's also a huge cheese factor dropped into the recipe. I actually liked the gooeyness of the cheese inside the meat. It was nice to have the conflicting softness of the cheese within a substantial meaty … [Read more...]
