Synopsis: She has a future she can’t escape. He refuses to let her face it alone.

Twenty-one. The age when adult life begins. In my case, it’s the age I learned my future sucked, big time, and there was nothing I could do about it. Every minute of every day I face the fact my life is only going to get worse. Why? Because I have early-onset Parkinson’s Disease. I’m not going to let it get me down, but I also can’t let anyone close. That’s not fair to them, or to me. Trust me. So that means my heart and my soul is off-limits.
But then I traveled to Australia on a college scholarship program and life royally screwed me over. Again.
Raphael Jones is an arrogant Australian celebrity, the hottest guy on campus and a pain in my ass. Worst of all, he makes me ache for a life I’ll never be able to have. Especially when he takes me in his arms and does wicked things to my body.
How do I have a hope of surviving ten weeks in Australia when it’s not just the paparazzi who have me in their sights, but Raph as well? Because Raphael Jones is a man who always gets what he wants. And no matter what I say or do, he refuses to accept what I so painfully know: a life and future with me is no life at all.


*I given an eARC via NetGalley in exchange an honest review*

“Unconditional” is actually my first New Adult book and I love love love it, the characters feel so real. “Unconditional” follow Maci Rowling and her life in Sydney University. Both Maci and her mother suffered Parkinson’s Disease, I learned more about Parkinson’s Disease in this book (even it took me long enough to figure what is Parkinson’s Disease)

I want to visit Australia so badly after reading this book, I want taste Vegemite even everyone said it taste gross or just buy a TimTam (Note to myself: Buy a pack of TimTam when I have time) and “Unconditional” had me at Chris Hemsworth (I meant have you look at his face? It’s perfection)

I love Raph, he’s funny, a little bit cocky, very sexy, smart, artistic and sexy (point added for his family owning an kangaroo farm). I just fuxking love him so much. And Heather, she’s Maci’s best friend; every girls needs a Heather in her life. Brendon is fit and beautiful, I was worried it would turn into a love triangle at first. Brendon is like the big brother to Maci.

This book is like riding a roller coaster, first it’s funny, then fluff and then steamy then heartbreaking. But don’t worry it’s a happy ending. I adore the chemistry between Maci and Raph and the friendship of Maci and Heather.

Overall its have everything I love: dealing with life, contemporary romance, sexy male characters, Austria?! Count me in! I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Maybe I want to date a Austria boy maybe a certain blonde with lips ring , in a band called 5 seconds of summer *wink**wink*

January 2015 Wrap Up

IMG_0707
In the month of January, I have finished 5 books. And most of them are re-reads so minus the re-reads I have only finished 2 books (OMG that’s a small amount of books)

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling (Re-read) 5/5
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling (Re-read) 5/5
  • Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto 3/5
  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan (Re-read) 5/5
  • These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner 5/5

Re-reading Harry Potter make me feel like I am back in Primary School, Harry Potter is part of my childhood and it’s my first fandom. I missed Hogwarts and everything about it, I think I will re-read the whole series when I have time.

I read Kitchen for school, but I don’t like it that much. Maybe it’s Yoshimoto’s writing isn’t my type or the plot, I am not sure why i don’t like it that much. There are two stories in Kitchen, the first one is Kitchen and the second one is Moonlight Shadow. I perfered Moonlight Shadow more because of the paranoraml-ish part of it. I guess Yoshimoto’s works isn’t for me…

I have already read The Lost Hero back in 2013, but I got the whole series of The Hero of Olympus for Christmas. So I am going to finish the whole series, well someone have already spoiled the ending of The Blood of Olympus for me so what’s the point of reading it? I think Leo is my favorite amoung Jason, Piper and Leo (Team Leo). And I’m already reading The Son of Neptune (which is amazing)

These Broken Stars… How do I begin about this book? Tbh I am not the science fiction type of people, but this book is pure awesness.It have space, aliens, survive, surviving in space… Just do yourself a favor and pick it up. *Full Review coming soon*

Most of the time, I have no idea what I am writing here but whatever.And I supprose to do PE homework but who care about PE?
