Let me tell you about the boy from Nepal (L reviews#11)

About the book:

In this novel, we follow Johannan an orphan boy who seeks a god in China that can help him with his fiancée’s blindness. His adventure starts when he found said god and he agreed to give Johannan the cure to Ayushi’s ,his love’s, blindness as long as he follows all the tasks that is given to him. 

Exciting Chinese Adventure

The novel is composed of short but very colorful chapters. Chapters that will make you not want to put the book down. It is filled with different scenarios and descriptive words that make you want to go to provincial China to see for yourself what Johannan is in. 
The characters, specially Johannan is someone you would want to be part of your hiking group if ever he is from our time. 

I do not want to narrate more of what happens in the book because I do not want to spoil anyone of you about what transpired in the story. 😄 Plus it is a book series and this is the first book of said series, so I do not want to judge it too early.

Missing in the forests

What I did not find entertaining or amusing is that the novel lacks a sense of suspense in some situations that the main character was put in. As usual, I found myself lost in some instances but I do know it is my short-attention span that should be blamed for that. 

There are times in the novel that Johannan was relatable and there are times where I could not understand why he put himself into such a fuss for a solution that can just be put aside because love is past that simple dilemma. 

Overall, 

The book is a good weekend read and a good break from the intense book reading that is usually a signature in such novels that fall in the same genre. I can’t compare it to Harry Potter but I do see similarities in their stories but of course HP is hard to beat. I do think this book will be a great read for those who loved the HP franchise but do not expect too much from it. 

I am thankful that I was given a chance to discover and read this book in exchange for an honest review. 

I hope you take time to purchase and read this book. 😄 

A digital copy of this novel was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Short Hiatus in preparation for Licensed DMD Examinations. (WOLM#30)

I have been too busy with Dentistry these past few days. I started to review and practice for the national licensure exams. Of course, I miss writing for all of you but I need to finish this part of my life before time runs out. Everyone, including me, is showing signs of impatience when it comes to my relationship with my chosen course.

It lasted 8 long years and I am glad that it is almost over. Between finding myself and what I want to do I decided to stick to this career path rather than change to something more convenient to everyone and myself.

With the help of everyone telling me “Sayang naman yung pinagaralan mo.” on the side, I later on went back to study what I needed to finish. It is somewhat by force but I pushed myself to go back so I cannot blame anyone besides myself.

One reason why I felt alone ,sad and even depressed was this college degree but I could say that I am already near my happiness because I now see light at the end of the tunnel. A little bit more effort and sacrifices and I will be able to finish this part of my life and close it. I can tell myself that I did all I can, with the help of the people around me, to finish and end this miserable part of my life.

I need more motivation and patience to end victoriously.

I should not let anything or anyone stop me from achieving and attaining success.

I ask for prayers and encouragements from all of you so that I can accomplish and finish these tasks triumpantly.

I also hope for understanding in terms of posting and blog entries. This blog may not be maintained while I am in the process of accomplishing what needs to be done.

I still have one more book review in store for everyone and I am starting to write the review and it may be posted this weekend. That entry might be my last review post for my personal blog, for now. I will still update everyone on my status and how I am feeling but I cannot promise to accomodate extracurricular activities during my review period.

I hope you won’t leave me while I am in the process of building my life in terms of my chosen profession.

‘Til next blogpost!

On mother’s day. (WOLM #29)

I know you never consider each other as family.

It seems like both of you do not like each other.

I hope while you are out with her family on a mother’s day you remember mine.

I hope you remember without her there won’t be someone who would give her all to make you feel important in this world.

I hope you remember her and the way she picks me up after you fight or make me feel worthless.

I hope you thank her for being there when you cannot be the one who would lift my spirits up.

I hope that one day you and her can agree and be one family.

and I hope one day you will only have your mother and mine to greet and thank during this day.
