REVIEW:

Big fan of espionage. But mostly the ones with female protagonist. I was looking for something light and not covered with heavy conspiracy or technical spy/governemnt/military terms that I had to Google. Alexis Stanton series stood out and the best part of it this first book is FREE. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love her character, born into wealth with super cool parents and working into a job where in most men only excelled, I am hooked. Sure she still get allowance and lives on her parent's guest house but who cares and it is not like she goes around spending their money on silly little things. There were some word usage problems and sentence repetitions that I found very funny. I am pretty sure the correct word was rapel not repel. Man, that threw me off a little bit. That was the only let down.

Writing about TV: Shameless

With a new bundle of joy in hand, I couldn't really read comfortably. It has been exactly 3 months and 18 days since I last read sometime for fun. So I substitute reading for watchign television, and boy did I watch television! I got totally caught up with Jaxx and the Samcro gang. Finished, Prison Break in two weeks, all episodes of Downton Abbey, Merlin and Fringe. All that thanks to Netflix, the lightweight Kindle Fire and the best buy ever... Samsung Blue Ray with WiFi capability. After exhausting all episode of said shows I begun to panic. "What in the world am I going to watch now?"After two weeks of aimless tv show search I finally found it or should I say them...
Frank Gallagher and his dysfunctional family was the main attraction of my paid family leave vacation when my cute little bundle of joy is snoozing. Jersey Shores got nothing on this kids. William H. Macy shows off his spectacular acting skills in this series. I finally saw a different side of Emmy Rossum on tv and seriously WTF?! the situations and the way they live in reminds me on how people in my old country survives. I am engrossed and highly entertained. I love love love this show.

REVIEW:
Before I go through the review, I wanted to say.... I miss everyone. Wow. This is my first review for this year. Frankly the last book I read, was the last one I reviewed. Having a new baby and going back to work made reading a non-option. But now that I got everything in place. I can go back to this hobby. Since I've been gone, I missed a lot of good books. So feel free to leave a comment on which ones I should look into.

Now for the review... I wanted to start off with something funny and something kind of memoir-ish. Took me hours and frankly I thought I will never find any until I decided to check out Kindle Singles. Max Lance's work stood out. I imagined it to be on the same level when my guy friends tell me a story on how their date went. It was exactly that. I was LMAO. For $0.99, it was surprisingly good. I love the way he described the dates on with these chicks. it was so simple and so real like I was just reading one of my friends' lengthy e-mails.
