Pigeon: Impossible

The mission I spoke of in my previous post? Never happened.
I also barely read any books because of other pressing matters, therefore no book reviews.

But then I find this funny short film.

Story: A rookie secret agent is faced with a problem seldom covered in basic training: what to do when a curious pigeon gets trapped inside your multi-million dollar, government-issued nuclear briefcase. www.pigeonimpossible.com





Review: Love this film! Some Youtube hated the Pigeon but I actually find him quite charming (tough too). Though the end made me sucked my lips :(

Truth or Date

Truth or Date (Better Date than Never, #2) My rating: 5/5

Summary:

(Better Date than Never series, Book #2)

Gina Hall is done with men who won’t commit. Ten years waiting for her ex to propose wasted her time. Never again. When her friend Kristen starts a game of Truth or Dare, she dares Gina to go on a date with Ethan, who’s amazing and total marriage material.

As Gina plans the going away party for office playboy Chris Bradley, she spontaneously initiates a game of Truth or Dare with him. When his turn comes around, he dares Gina to pose as his girlfriend to help get a flirty colleague off his back. Gina finds playing couple with Chris way too much fun.

Even though Gina and Chris are pretending, their relationship begins to feel painfully real. Fearing she might be falling for another fly-by man, Gina must focus on Ethan so she doesn’t make the same dating mistakes all over again.

*****

My review:

This story made me pout disappointedly in the beginning as I was expecting the same kind of feeling as the first book I read in this series. I read this volume slowly like I normally does to books that hasn't properly gripped me yet. It was around forty percent when things started to get exciting for me. I was falling for Chris, well, Ethan was nice but there's something about Chris that made like him better. And that was answered in the end.

And it wasn't only Gina's heart that flipped over when she receive this text. "Wear the sweats you wore to the office Monday if you want. Whenever you walk into a room, I can't take my eyes off you" My emotion burst and I was squealing like a starstruck teen.

I was a bit annoyed with Gina's indecisiveness and I honestly thought that I would be marking this book with 3 stars, maybe 4 but by the end of the book, I was so satisfied I want to make it 5 afterall.
