BOOK: My lovely wife by Samantha Downing


❤❤❤❤

OMG. The story twist was insane! Or maybe for me. I did not see that coming! 


The story revolves around a married couple who had two kids and was living a pretty boring, mediocre life. The husband did not know anything about his wife’s sister aside from the fact that she has been trying to hurt his wife. Until one day came and the sister was at their doorstep and all he could do was, well . . . kill the sister. And that’s where the blood thirst game began.

I have to admit, the beginning of the story was pretty slow. I know there’s a twist or some sick story and I was waiting for it to drop excitedly. It was kind of a slow build. I kind of despised the husband for cheating. But my hate for the wife grew with each page I read. 


Every marriage has its own problems. Every marriage has its own secrets, Every marriage has its own story. Different people choose different ways to keep their marriage burning. But the way this couple did? You’d never expect. 


Read this and you won’t regret it. I can’t wait to read another Samantha Downing story. ❤ 

MOVIE REVIEW: The Fugitive


What would you do if you were being accused of killing your own spouse? 

harrison-ford-the-fugitive-warner-bros

IMDB: Dr. Richard Kimble, unjustly accused of murdering his wife, must find the real killer while being the target of a nationwide manhunt led by a seasoned U.S. Marshal.

To be honest, I was interested in watching The Fugitive because I thought there will be some bad ass court scene. When you see Harrison Ford, you’d know in an instant there will be some action scenes. It’s in his face and character already, his persona.

For the first hour of the movie, I got fooled. All the while, I was thinking that there are still some good, honest people and loyal friends in the world — this, being Dr. Nichols. I was actually surprised because he seemed to be offering a helping hand genuinely. Little did I know, it was that bastard’s fault. Also, the movie — like any other mmovie with policce, crime scenes proved that NYPD, FBI or any police are the last ones at the scene, last ones to solve the crime. Dr. Kimble, persistent to get to the bottom of the truth, was able to solve the crime without the help of the police. Remember when the partner of Gerard said, ‘Does this guy ever quit?’. 😛 Haha.

It’s worth watching! Tommy Lee is my favorite in this movie. ❤

MOVIE REVIEW: The Intruder


IMDB: A young married couple buys a beautiful house on several acres of land, only to find out that the man they bought it from refuses to let go of the property.

It is truly a beautiful house with a very large acre of garden, outdoor and nature. and shoot, it’s in the middle of nowhere!! I love how both of the couple seemed to be in love, deciding to buy a house and start a beautiful family. The dining area is nice. ❤ and one scary painting!

I hated how Annie was so naive! Maybe she’s just being friendly or trying to fit in the new neighborhood but damn it woman! Listen to your husband. Mike is creepy! He’s in your freaking house all the time. And that doesn’t surprise you? And are you not scared that he was gardening your lawn? Geez. And Mike? Such a pervert!

The movie is your typical thriller where the naive woman needs to be saved by a man because she was deceived by a helpful man. It’s pretty predictable in a sense. I wouldn’t watch it again but if you want to watch it, it’s not a complete waste of time.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Occupant


IMDB: Javier Muñoz, once a successful executive, makes the fateful decision to leave his home, which he and his family can no longer afford.

House is on fire! 😀 I don’t blame Javier for being obsessed! But sshhhiiiitt, how did he pull off marrying the occupant’s wife in the end?

I understand his depression regarding the difficulty of finding a good job and faced with the notion that old dogs can’t learn new tricks. And alsooooo, what a sick, sick janitor! He was black mailing Javier to set up a camera so he can watch this poor girl. What a sick old pervert!

It’s a thrill to watch how the stalking unfolds but it turned a mighty downfall when what killed Mario Casas was a mere peanut allergy. That’s it? I mean, the wife did not investigate or even had the slightest clue?

It’s a nice movie to watch when you’re not doing anything. 

BOOK REVIEW : The Wives by Tarryn Fisher


GOODREADS: Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him. But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married.

What follows is one of the most twisted, shocking thrillers you’ll ever read.

HOLY SHIT. If you are looking for something like Gone Girl, this is it. It’s on some next level shit. I couldn’t put it down. Once I’ve decided to take a rest from reading, the end of the chapter just reels you back in.

The plot twists is mind blowing! like, HOW? I started this book with pity for Thursday for being stuck in a polygamist marriage then I moved on to annoyance of how she ever willingly said yes to this agreement and somehow understanding of how it turned her to be a stalker and quite obsessed with the other wives.

But then, here comes Seth with his charming antics and very sweet gestures only to be lured to his other personality as what Thursday believed him to be, – a man living with so much lies with a temper. Throw in a bitter ex-wife with her four inch heels, a successful job and a poise and class to match, a practiced liar and an opportunist, who finds herself in a situation to take revenge on the slut that ruined her marriage.

  • That’s how women are, right? Always wondering about each other – curiosity and spite curdling together in little emotional puddles. If you wonder too hard, you’ll get everything wrong.
  • No one tries that hard to keep their husband unless they’ve already lost him.
  • The truth is that the heart’s desire is a mere current against the tide of nurture and nature. You can spend your whole life swimming against it and eventually you’ll get tired and the current of genes and upbringing will put you under.
  • You don’t have to give up something you love just because other people disapprove.
  • That’s what love is about right? Working with what your partner came with.
  • A relationship can withstand almost any trial if the sex was good.
  • It’s amazing how once you open a door for something, there’s o going back. All you can do is brace yourself as you get sucked in.
  • We’re all just waiting for someone to stand behind us, aren’t we? Even if it’s just one person, it gives you strength.
  • I was overcame with love – pressing, pressing, pressing my feelings down to accommodate him. Isn’t that what we do as women?
  • Women are stuck in a cycle of insecurity perpetuated by the way men treat them and we are constantly fighting to prove to them our value.
  • We see each other often, but no one really knows what’s happening behind everyone’s eyes.
  • We busy ourselves trying not to be lonely, trying to find purpose in careers, and lovers and children, but any moment, those feelings we work so hard to possess could easily be taken from us.

This is all so confusing! There’s way too many plot twist and mind games! I LOVE THE BOOK. This reminds me of Verity by CHoover. ❤ ❤

BOOK REVIEW : Verity by Colleen Hoover


Goodreads: Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish. Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of what really happened the day her daughter died.

Okay, I . DID . NOT . EXPECT . THAT.

This is no secret, I love Colleen Hoover’s books but this is mind blowingly different. It got me all confused — in an intellectual, magnificent way of writing. Verity is the ultimate manipulator!

Okay, before I spill some more details . . this is sick af but I kind of connected with the Verity from the manuscript. It’s creepy as hell and I’m not saying that I can kill a person or attempt to kill one, at the very least. But I honestly feel the same way about kids, and I don’t know if it’s ever going to change. All I can say is that the Verity in the manuscript is twisted but I do understand where she’s coming from, (not the sex addict part though).

  • Will Jeremy hate Lowen when he finds out that she hid the letter from him?
  • Will Crew grow up as twisted as Verity is?
  • Did Verity really just wrote the manuscript as a practice to be good at writing from an Antagonist point of view?
  • Is Jeremy the bad guy for lying when in fact he knows about the manuscript already?

You can never truly know a person inside and out. This book has so many plot twists I don’t even know where the truth is! I have no idea who the good person is. Verity is twisted and disturbing but YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN. ❤

I completely recommend you read this book . . A S A P

MOVIE REVIEW: State of Play


IMDB: When a congressional aide is killed, a Washington D.C. journalist starts investigating the case involving the congressman, his old college friend.

d9d1571d6be1823c3bfa1eae8664f58d-state-of-play-1024

I’m going to warn you that this will be a spoiler:

Sonia Baker, the head researcher of congressman was killed by an unidentified man. The congressman and his team is investigating a company, Pointcorp that is said to gain billions if the contract was finalized. During a hearing, the congressman was seen crying about the death of Sonia Baker, who is apparently — his mistress. Cal, an old friend of the congressman and Della are both journalists who started investigating the case.

What really happened? Pointcorp planted Sonia Baker in the congressman’s team to be a spy and tell them everything. But months after her assignment, she fell in love and she stopped giving information to Pointcorp. Since then, they have been harassing her and calling her nonstop. So the congressman became jealous and hired an assassin who he once saved his life to monitor, follow and report to him. Apparently, this assassin hated pointcorp and killed Sonia Baker without the congressman’s authorization.

One part of the movie tackles journalism. I think it’s important to have independent newspapers that seeks to know the truth, investigate on an issue may it be politicians or the government.

I love how there are twists as the story unfolds. Any movie recommendations for me? ❤
