Book Review .. Doc. Smart CoOkie Style!!

Since I didn’t go to college today ( I decided I need a break XD), I'll blab a little or maybe a lot *grinning*, on 3 of the books I read last month. Enjoy!! Or not.
Oh I'm sure you will :P
The Viscount who Loved ME
Julia Quinn

Oh I'm in love!! *blushing* with the heroin, the Viscount, lord Bridgerton, Anthony.
He's mm how should I put it? Devastatingly handsome.
Tall, athletic, brown eyes, chestnut thick hair, perfect cheek bones and his lips were classically beautiful :P

However, this book beauty is not all him its so romantic, smart and seriously funny. I mean you WILL laugh your ass out.
But I'm not that fond of the ending, being not a happy endings person. I was longing for someone to die. (I need my drama)

Actually this book is the 2nd of a series of 8 for the 8 children of the Bridgerton family. I am now reading the 1st " The Duke and I". And so far so good. Jill Barnett says that "Julia Quinn is our contemporary Jane Austen." And I can't agree more. Although I don't know who's the hell this Jill? It written on the back cover.

I'm dying to read " Romancing Mister Bridgerton". It's Colin's book. But I can't find it anywhere. =[
So people in Jeddah please if find it tell me where or if you have it lend it to me. I promise I'll take good care of it *angel face*.

P.S: if you ever going to read for this author –which is very much advisable- don't read the back cover. It gives too much info.


Elizabeth Gilbert

What a brilliant book!!

I loved that fact that she dropped everything and just took off. I wish I can do that, but I can't =[ .

In the eat part she goes to Italy and obviously eat. However if I were her, I'd have done things in this order:
1. Shower myself with art.
2. Eat.
3. Shop till I drop. And I'll become a super model at last yaay . Here's the story of my discovery XD:
Here I am all glammed up, shopping and wondering around in Milan. I walk into Valntino's boutique and I start looking around. I find this amazing red dress. I know I can't afford it but yet I and go and try it on. I walk out of the changing room looking absolutely breath taking and it just happens that my so soon to be best friend, Vlentino is sitting right there. He looks at me and he's out of his mind. He jump up and tell me he needs me for his show tomorrow night. That I'm the perfect girl for it. I'm so flattered but I have to refuse you see I am a doctor not a model (that's what my mom said when I told her I want to be a model LOL). He begs me. And I say no again. He begs some more and offer to give me the dress I'm wearing. Hmm I think a little then say OK. << I know m3 nfsy LOL
4. I eat some more then gag. I have to walk the runway tomorrow :P.
5. I become a super model overnight.
6. You know when in Rome :P

I'm not a big fan of the India part (pray). I just don't believe in the stuff she claims.
The Indonesia (love) part is amazing. The people are so cute. You are just gonna love them.
All to all it’s a really good book with lots of answers. Read it!!

Love in the Time of Cholera
Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Let's just cut the crap and put it to this: the best thing about this book is its cover!!
Yeah you heard me the cover!!
No but but blah blah. I know this author won a Nobel prize. I know everybody thinks it’s the most amazing love story of all times. But its simply not!!

This is how I see it: Florentino Ariza was dumped by his teenage sweetheart. She gets married to a doctor, that you will wish for his death in the 1st 60 pages so the story can finally begin. Mean while, Florentino Ariza becomes a man hore, still obsessing over Fermina Daza (and whats with writing their full names every time they are mentioned :S). The doc die and the two get together when they are 80 and somehow they manage to have very bad sex. How in the world did they have Viagra or something in that time? :S
The end.

What a pathetic loser!!

To be honest the last chapter is fairly good. Cuz you would want to know what happens in the end.
And its not just me who hated the book. Its all the people in my book club. And we are good readers. So its not us, it’s the fucking highly over rated book.

But I'm still willing to read One "Hundred Years of Solitude". I only hope its better. Much, much better!!

Wow that was long :P


  1. Wow this is helpful sweetie! You know what? I will go for romance story like the first book, just by reading your review, I had a crush on that gorgeous man, I always had a crush on athletic body and brown eyes and brown hair. Damn, now I'm fantasize myself playing with his hair with my fingers, LOL!

  2. the first book seems nice.. the second is in progress
    the third i didn't read it.. i watched the movie.. and i love every word u said about it.. it's stupid.. dirty... filthy book.. with its characters of course.. i hate the part when he said " i didn't cheat on u" @_@
    for god's sake he slept with every female in the town.. he even lead to the death of one of them !!
    يلعن ابو الحب اللي زي كدا


    LOL joking :P

    But if you want to read the 1st book start with the 1st part "The Duke and I". Its really good. I'll tell you more about it in my next book review. ;P

    Fadiah what do u mean: the second is in progress??

    LOL its even worse in the book he says that he kept himself for her :S

  4. I have to agree with the review for The Viscount Who Loved ME, it was the first book I read of JQ and i'm still hooked! Anthony is one of those broody, handsome hero's you just HAVE to love.
    However Colin's story: Romancing Mister Bridgerton is probbly the BEST in the series. My favoite part is that they have a big hunt to find Lady Wistledown (the gossip columist). 5 STARS! A must read. =)

  5. Aww I'm even more excited to read Colin's book now. =]

  6. in progress ya3ni lessa ba a8ra2o @_@
