One chance to wish..

This lyrics from the song Airplanes frames my question very well. There are so many things we wish for. So many unfulfilled daydreams, so many wistful sighes. But if you had ONE, only ONE chance, which of your million wishes blown would you choose to have fulfilled?? What would YOU wish for if you had one chance??

REVIEW:

23312692

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole. My other half—my twin brother, my Finn—is crazy. I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me. I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. Dare DuBray. He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. He has the power to destroy me. Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. Why? Because of a secret. A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. You won’t either.”

Last summer, I had read the Beautifully Broken series by Courtney Cole. Very cute, very chick-lit, but thoroughly interesting in its own sphere. A few months later, I come across the blurb for Nocte. My reaction- Wait, what? This is written by Courtney Cole?? Isn’t she the one who wrote Beautifully Broken??

And then I read this book.

Totally life-altering decision.

First of all, the concept. Lord, the idea. Throughout the first book (and the second), I had no clue what is going to happen to the storyline. I wasn’t even sure of the genre of this book!! But I just. couldn’t. put. it. down.

Next, the characters. Calla was one awesome, frustrating, twisted heroine. Finn- I refuse to discuss him. Dare- *swoons on spot*

Did I mention that this book has a lot of Latin phrases? ❤

*shivers* I read this book months back, but it still haunts me. Maybe because I’ve been dumb enough not to read the third book. Oh wait, the third book hasn’t even released ! *angry face*

You can read this book. In fact you totally should. I gave it 5 stars. So did thousands of other people.

Buuuuut, consider yourself warned.

“Don’t ask, because I can’t tell you right now. Everyone has secrets, Calla, even me.”

“I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day.”

” Save me, and I will save you.”

PLAYLIST:

I must be crazy to be making a playlist for this…

1. Down- Jason Walker

I thought I could fly, so why did I drown?
Never know why it’s coming down, down, down.

2. Comfortably Numb- Pink Floyd

This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

3.Paradise- Coldplay

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach

4. My Immortal- Evanescence

Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won’t leave me alone

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

5. I’ll Follow You Into The Dark- Death Cab For Cutie

If there’s no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark

6. Closer- Kings Of Leon

With the moon I run
Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

 

7. Monster- Imagine Dragons

I get the feeling just because
Everything I touch isn’t dark enough
That this problem lies in me

8. Echo- Jason Walker

Cause my echo, echo
Is the only voice coming back
Shadow, shadow
Is the only friend that I have

9. Come Away To The Water- Maroon 5

Come away little lamb come away to the slaughter
To the one appointed to see this through
We are calling for you

My head is spinning. (Side effect of reading or thinking about this book.)

I want, no, I need the third book yesterday!!!!!!!!

Summer’s over, back to school…

After one month of lazy mornings, zero studying and whole-night readings, I’m finally back to school, for the last time as I’m in 12th grade now. I’m actually happy. School = Friends+ chatting+ seeing this particular person.

But when you add studying to the equation.. Ahem!

So stealing an idea from one of Amy‘s posts, here’s an overview to me and the subjects that I have to endure/ enjoy.

MATHS

  • Best to start with the worst. I HATE this subject.
  • My teacher is… indescribable. Bhramori, can you help??
  • My tuition teacher is not around for more than a month. Yay!
  • I can stand Calculus, or matrices and determinants, but Conics- kill me now!!!
  • I need to say this this again- our Maths teacher in school- indescribable. The root of all evils. Sorry ma’am!

PHYSICS

  • Second-worst subject.
  • Our Physics teacher is also our class teacher, to make matters worse. Lets not talk about her pronounciations.
  • Electricity and Mechanics- can you die??
  • Light and Atoms and nuclei – my saving grace.
  • Numericals- Thy relation to Maths is a sacrilege.

CHEMISTRY

  • I love one of our chemistry teachers! She’s the best!!! She’s so amazing. Its not like she’s all over-friendly and everything, but man, I respect her. Full-stop.
  • The other teacher..umm, well, lets just say that she’s not as good. Or maybe the fact that she teaches Organic Chemistry make her an antagonist in my life??
  • Not that I hate Organic. I just hate the way she teaches.
  • Chemistry Practicals are awesome as well. I have this lab partner who is also one of my best friends since forever, so we both do our work together. We aren’t actually supposed to have lab partners, but do we care?? 😛
  • And again, Numericals- Thy crimes shall not be ignored.

BIOLOGY

  • Anyone heard Only Hope by Mandy Moore? “I  know now you’re my only hope” As far as Science subjects go, Biology is my only hope.
  • Our Biology teacher is weird. She just makes us write notes all day long. Its like handwriting practice.
  • Buuuut, my tuition teacher is AWESOME! He’s a Medical student, and has this tendency of making everything sound interesting. Oh, and he knows quite a lot of Latin and other word origins, and often imparts his knowledge. 🙂
  • Well, this is the only subject which makes sense. I mean, this is the only subject which can be called a NECESSITY. Where would you be without doctors??

BENGALI

  • My dad is a Bengali teacher, my entire family has degrees in this language. And its my mother tongue. Needless to say that I’m good at it. I’m not bragging, I swear. I just am good at it.
  • I love one of our teachers. She’s so cute and sweet and teaches real literature.
  • The other teacher though.. I HATE her.. She gives tuitions at home, and her tuitions students get more marks, and know ALL the questions before the exams! How unfair???
  • But I still got the highest in my section and second-highest in my section  last year, so..*shrugs*
  • And I’m totally modest about this subject. 😛

ENGLISH

  • ❤ ❤ ❤
  • Obviously, its my favorite subject now that I don’t have History and Geography.
  • Thank you Keith Sir (an ex-teacher at our school) for igniting my love for this subject.
  • Good teacher or bad, good marks or bad ones- NOTHING can lessen my love for English.
  • Specially Literature. I love writing essays, but Literature is a whole different place.

😀

I can’t believe I typed so much today! *raised eyebrows*

Try it out guys, this post is F.U.N. 🙂
