Brightest

BrightestBrightest by Johann de Venecia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The first story about the lost firefly and the firefly catcher is very entertaining; I read it all in one. It was weird at first especially when the firefly catchers asked for help from the firefly (who he catches) but as I go on reading I was pulled into their world. The loneliness of the old firefly and the happiness he felt when he found out that all hope wasn't lost. I also like the firefly catcher he demonstrated that even in hopeless situation it’s good to keep on trying and that never giving up can rewarding.

The second “story” or I rather call it poem is very dense in words, I have difficulty understanding the meaning behind it but in my opinion it’s a nice inspirational poem for those who lost someone, it works like a “therapeutic” words. I would give this piece 4 star out of 5.

The art in the book is lovely and magical, and I’ll give it 3-1/2 rating.

The Gift

The GiftThe Gift by Danielle Steel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the first book I ever read from Danielle Steel. I never really paid attention to her work before but it was laying in the apartment we rented and was bored and so I pick the book and flip the page and from the first page I actually got hook. I like how it easy it is to read. I like how the author referred to some people as a gift but the adult characters annoyed me a bit, especially to the parents of the family who started falling apart. It almost feels immature that they need another "gift" to be able to restore their relationship back to the way it was.

Monkey High Volume 1

Monkey High!, Vol. 1Monkey High!, Vol. 1 by Shouko Akira
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I Like this shoujo manga. Unlike most manga where the heroine fall for the "popular" alpha hero, she choose the one every girl can't seem to imagine why,. But of course the hero is still like by other characters. I like him too, cheerful and easy going but could occasionally get serious. I like how relax the story go but still keep on the edge of my seat. I'm currently on Volume 5 and I'm still liking it. And I hope that last to the end because what I hate in most shoujo demography manga, is that the likable female heroine become a indecisive annoying female character once she become face with a challenge. (especially about two males)
