The Hunchback of Notredame on Disney!

My blog’s a mess. Now am really not sure what type it is. I have been posting a lot if not reviews, food! LOL. Like this one, another review! But what have you hahah! Seriously now, it was my first time to watch The Hunchback of Notredame on Disney channel this afternoon for reasons I don’t know, well maybe I got bored or something. It was an old Disney movie so the animation was ofcourse, old school but seriously, it was cool. I mean a lot of parts in the movie could happen in real life, like how the villain Judge Frollo appeared corrupted and powerful and killed anyone who went his way and especially Quasimodo’s character. He did not show anything bad against his people though he wasn’t really loved at first. He did not disrespect nor distrust anyone but he just completely showed how good his heart was despite of his unappealing appearance. In reality, people would always treat you like your some kind of a contagious illness without knowing first that you’re not even infected. Hope I could have Quasimodo’s heart: pure.

The sky is dark with wings..

Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.

Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies … and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.

For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.

In the fight for Luce, who will win?

MY THOUGHTS:

What captured my attention that lead me to purchase this book is actually the sypnosys of it where Lucinda dies and reincarnates every after 17 years just to be with Daniel. Its interesting and extraordinary. Plus the gorgeous cover ofcourse. When I finished Fallen, Torment and Passion, all I could ever think of is fast-forward time so I could read and know the ending of the series. And after several months of waiting, here I am, staring at my book and making the review.

I just couldn’t believe how Lauren provided us with such amazing ending to the series and that something quite really unexpected. I thought that Rapture is just the perfect way to make Luce and Daniel be together. Aside from that, Lauren acknowledged her Filipino fans which I think is a very nice deed from an author. (Am so proud!)

You see, the first time I cried over a character’s death was during Sirius Black’s in Harry Potter and Rapture’s several characters would be the second. Yes, a lot of great characters have died and again, you would never expect who those characters were. Its also answered all my parked questions since Fallen and clearly, this last one made the whole series extra-spectacular. One of my favorite parts was when Lucinda remembered the Outcasts left, when she spoke their names. There’s this pride and respect not only for Lucinda but the way Lauren managed to give importance to all the characters equally. Friendship, trust and respect were portrayed in such a way that you would never look at relationships ordinarily like you used to. (Cam and Daniel stayed together so as Roland, Annabelle, Shelby, Miles, Gabbe, Molly and Arriane. They’ve done so much because they believed in each other no matter what their differences were). I also would like to point the parts where the curse was thoroughly explained, how important that we learn from the lessons of the past, that there’s no other things greater than God and love would really find its way to you.

I want more, Lauren. HAHAHA. Thank you for this wonderful book.

HAPPY APRIL!! ♥♥

I think I have not accomplished much this March due to procrastination and work. Haven’t even updated my SB planner yet, last was March 17! Been tooooo busy at work that I seldom find time to squeeze tasks I wrote and prepared for the month and besides am drained, really. Especially for my running routine, I blame the weather because it’s been so bipolar. So this month, I won’t write anything anymore! HAHA for a change!

Still I hope that this month would overflow with awesomeness and indeed, pure happiness! Pessimistic shield: ON! ♥♥ Oh, it’s my travel month BTW! Yay!

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS AND DON’T FORGET, ITS GAME OF THRONES S2 LATER! :“>

The Devouring.

         

I am not really fond of anything horror since The Ring (Japanese version) and you will really really REALLY frighten me if you would show me… Argh, can’t even type it!! *Goosebumps* Since I was a kid, I became paranoid with ghosts and all because I grew up in the province plus I think I could sense them.  I could be brave at times but whenever I think of The Ring, I feel like my heart is going to come out of my chest because I am so much scared of it. *Goosebumps*

When I saw the sypnosis of The Devouring on Good Reads, I immediately thought that it’s a good one. But never did I anticipate that it would scare the hell out of me! Yes, it did. Especially the part where there’s this sinister smile on Henry’s face. I hate my brain when it starts to imagine it! Come one! It’s really a scary story.

The book was I think the first horror one I owned and read so I don’t have anything to compare it to. I could say that yes, its got the thing that would give you adrenaline rush (if that’s what the story intented to its readers) and its something you would definitely finish no matter how scared you are. (Imagine, I kept reading till 12MD!). The story about Vours has a very good flow because as we all know, an evil could make you see anything and I think fear is something it would showcase. The story would not just make you hide under your blankets but it teaches its readers how to conquer fears. That part was essential not only when it comes to demons but in our day to day lives, right? But you know what, I fell for Quinn! HAHA! Oops, not too much spoiler!

Reggie was a tough kid and I would have done the same thing to save Henry. Such a cute, fragile kiddo! I also like the part that Reggie was working for a small library! HAHA. This is going nowhere! All in all, I can’t wait to get my hands on the Soultice!

My special friend Jeff flew in from States after his last visit 5 years ago. He bought this gigantic Toblerone for me because he said he couldn’t find Reese’s. It has really been a while since we’ve seen each other and it feels great to see an old friend.

Then I filed for an emergency halfday leave today at work. Damn. First time I cried in ages. All in all, God is still good. He does really provide. It’s our advanced pay day today.

Praise to You Father.

Let’s freeze time to immortalize moments we want to treasure, those we don’t want to be erased by time, those moments which taught us so much and probably those we know would never ever happen again. Life is short, so let’s make it count and make as if one lifetime is enough.
