The Way We Were by Elizabeth Noble

this is a really captivating book. i keep thinking about it until i finally finish reading it. [spoiler] it's about Susannah who was trapped with the affection with her old fling, Rob. earlier in life, they had this kind of amazingly morale, sweet relationship but they broke up with almost no closure between them. which i believe is why, when circumstance was in their aid, they went back together, which isn't a good thing to do. i almost like the ending. almost.  

and somehow, from the beginning i kept picturing Rob as that dude that works along Mariska Hargitay in Law and Order. perhaps because the author first mentioning him as a tall and big guy ::shrugs:: but i found him fitting the role really well :D

all in all i'd recommend this book if you're looking for something sweet and warm with a little bit drama for boring Sundays.

I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk

i think this is the first chick-lit i read this year. thanks to it, now i know i'm not a fan of chick-lit novels. but maybe because i just jumped into the 'i heart' chronicles without following the order of events as i should, so i felt left out. hmm.. maybe later i'll go into the other 'i heart' novels.

but it had been quite fun reading this book, coz at least there's a bit french in it, which makes me feel a bit smarter for being able to understand (though simple) phrases like "je ne parle francais". LOL. that's how pathetic i was then.

i've got nothing much to say about this book. it's a light reading material, some conflicts here and there, some stupid decisions, and the inevitable happy ending. which is a good thing, really.
