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??
The comment box is all yours..
Yes, yes, yes! I’m finally doing this review and playlist!!! *sigh* I loved this book soooo much!!! *jumps up and down in excitement* *and then suddenly stops* But I also HATED it..
Confused?? Read on..
“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.”
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
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
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!!!!!!!!
So true that it hurts.. 😦
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.
I can’t believe I typed so much today! *raised eyebrows*
Try it out guys, this post is F.U.N. 🙂
I chose the first, but you chose the second..
Sad Beautiful Tragic,
A very unexpected nomination a weeks ago by brokenheartdesigner.. But her questions were different and I couldn’t resist.. What? I never said I’m not greedy.. 😀
1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
North Carolina.. Thank you Nicholas Sparks -_- Have any of you been there?? Any idea?? Its supposed to be a beautiful place..
2. What is your go-to Starbucks (or Tim Hortons, Second Cup, etc) order?
Since I live in India, I’ll translate Starbucks as Cafe Coffee Day.. But it doesnt matter, I’m not a coffee/tea person.
3. Why did you start blogging?
Random spur of the moment decision.. Mainly I wanted to share my book playlists..
4. What is your favourite thing to do in the summer?
5. What is your best memory from high school?
I AM in high school.. I’ll get back to this question next year. 🙂
6. What is your biggest fear?
Falling. I am afraid of heights, but that is not the only aspect of falling that I mean..
7. What is one thing that, if you could, you would go back and redo?
I don’t regret much in my life. In spite of the ups and downs, I think each moment has taught me something new.
8. What is your favourite makeup product?
I can’t live without kohl… So Lakme Colossal Kajal is a permanent fixture on my dressing table.
9. What is your favourite restaurant?
My grandma is the best cook ever.. Who need restaurants?? 😀
10. Who is your favourite celebrity?
Ian Somerhalder. Enough said.
11. If you could do one thing, knowing that you can not fail, what would it be?
Write a book and publish it. To myself: Ya, dream on.
Not really.. I actually LOVE school.. But I get so less time to do ANYTHING!! I can’t read too much, and even if I do, I have to give up blogging time.
Which is pretty sad.
And now you know why I have been so irregular.
And the fact that I hate typing is really not helping.
