Book Review: An Abundance Of Katherines By John Green

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on April 12, 2014

I started reading John Green’s books when I was first intrigued by the plot behind The Fault In Our Stars. I’ve since then told myself that I would his other works. This is my third book from him of which the second one was Looking For Alaska. I expected a pretty good read from this book. In fact, I raised my standards a bit high for this one since I really wanted to read a John Green book for the longest time.

The story is about this boy named Colin who gets dumped 19 times by women bearing the name Katherine. In this book, he ventures outside his safe zone in an attempt to forget his recent break-up and maybe even provide an ingenious theorem that can potentially predict the outcome of any relationship.

Book Review: STEELHEART by Brandon Sanderson (Reckoners #1)

Posted in entertainment, life by Fated Blue on March 31, 2014

 

I literally JUST finished this book. I bought it after finding the synopsis very interesting and the way goodreads reviewed it. I’m not usually the type that takes the advice of other readers but the plot interested me anyway so I might as well give it a try. I truly didn’t know this was part of a series but after reading it, I’m glad that it is. For those too tired to finish the review, I’m giving this a good score at the end so might as well buy it!

I’m terribly terrible at becoming a terrible person terribly

As much as I don’t want to lose you, I’m afraid I can’t live my life miserably because of a failure that wouldn’t become a success no matter how much I wanted it, and perhaps still want it, to become one.

Don’t get me wrong. I find it troubling that I find myself wanting to get over you.

Kettlebell Training

Fated Blue:

Another friend of the kettlebells! :D

images-kbell I have been consistently training with a kettlebell for several months now. I have to admit that it was not initially one of my favorite forms of workout.  At first it seemed intimidating and I felt clumsy using it, but once I got the hang of it and embraced the challenge, it became more enjoyable and empowering. Mainly, I do the basic two-handed swing move with it. This morning, I got brave and tried out a kettlebell workout class. It was way more challenging than I thought it would be.  It was a combination of aerobic and strength training moves, all using various sized kettle bells (8 – 25 lbs). One of the great things about the kettlebell, is that it comes in several weight sizes, so you can ease into it and progressively increase the weight level as you go. I am currently able to use a 35 lb…

Book Review: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs (Peregrine #2)

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on March 23, 2014

Love the cover; better and creepier than the first one.

I’ll get to this quick. After reviewing the first book, I figured the second book would be a good try. It just so happened that I saw this at our local bookstore a month ago or something (I was reading Paulo Coelho’s Eleven Minutes then) and I somehow couldn’t wait to read this.

In a nutshell, the book is far, far better than its predecessor. As sequels should be, Ransom definitely upped the ante in this one, making this much more action packed and much more mysterious than the last one. The book was worth every cent in my opinion.
