Quick Synopsis: (Source: Goodreads)
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife's head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media--as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents--the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter--but is he really a killer? (more)

My thoughts:

3.5  out of 5 stars!

At long last! I finally got around into it OMG this story! I find Amy disturbing actually she's an intelligent psycho bitch! I kinda feel sorry for Nick but his actions are well not good either. Their marriage became toxic and it got into them and they let it get into themselves.I guess this stuff truly happens when you stop trying,lack of communication,death of a loved one,someone sick in the family,stress etc. it adds up! your body,mind and spirit will take the toll. What I liked about this story is how it proves it's not always the husband who is the culprit. I hope the next 2 books would deliver some sense of justice.They all need a psyche consult asap!

Until June's brother is murdered, and Day becomes the prime suspect.

In a shocking turn of events, the two uncover what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths to which their country will go to keep its secrets.

My Thoughts: 3 out of 5 stars
I love the cover!I like how Day and June's narrations differ in terms of color and font easy to read,.I finished this within a day.At first I thought Day's a girl and June's a boy haha I got a bit confused at first but finally got a hang of the idea it's actually the other way around.It started slow at first then the action picks up somewhere around the middle and the end. Their character description/appearance is like they're such beautiful people I felt like they're so made for each other you know even when they're so dirty never showered much,scavenging for food in the trash bins undercover or not and all that.The idea of this book is really nice and I find it a bit unique I haven't read anything like this before.Hopefully I get a chance to continue this adventure soon enough!

My Thoughts:

I love this series! Definitely an awesome tandem Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho! This story kinda made me happy and sad at the same time. Sometimes when you think about it you think rich kids leads a happy life because they have everything or whatever but they actually most of the time don't have the essential things that matters in real life such a a normal loving family life you know. They're acting skill so brilliant brought these characters to life and the romance part especially the love triangle doesn't look so force you know it's so heartwarming and cute thinking they're all still in school aww...I like how the story intertwined and they're mothers so funny! there's quite a lot of comic relief moments overall 5 out of 5 stars a great balance in everything! family life,different sorts of relationships etc. I highly recommend this show! xD

That is, until he pursues the beautiful actress Cheon Song Yi (Gianna Jun) for a romance out of this world.

My thoughts:

Took me awhile to finally get into this dunno why I didn't watched this soon enough or while it's still airing I guess I tried to stay away from the hype for what I heard it's really good! and it actually is! very good! well made and written pretty convincing actually although I feel like the ending is quite force like you know just so to get a happy ending but don't get me wrong I like a happy ending but theory wise you know? I like how there's an extra episode for the fans since it's such a hit! I love Jeon Ji Hyun especially in the early days of her career she also got married recently and I'm starting to get fond of Kim Soo Hyun his character always seems serious and uptight whenever I watch him.Overall 4.9 out of 5 stars that ending tho... still I highly recommend this show! love love love!

My thoughts:

I cried in some parts of each episode I think the only time I didn't cry is when I got tired of crying or felt like my tears are all dried up hahaha

Let's talk about the characters...

I don't really like the other princess companion Bo Gyeong so plastic! also her father ugh so evil! no wonder she's like that although even til the end I hope she'll do the right thing..As for Princess Min Hwa's she's such a spoiled royal! I really hate it when she cries and people tolerate her for it and gets what she wants and that ending ugh -_-
looks like they're having fun (left: Young Bo Gyeong, middle young princess minhwa right young Yeon Woo)
I like to ship Woon and Seol I think they'd be like the perfect warrior couple haha! I love their swordmanship and action scenes although I really hope there's more scenes for both of them together.
Left:Woon (King's guard) Right: Seol (wol's protector)

Kim Soo-hyun so perfect for the King Role although it took him quite a long time to figure the whole thing out and investigate what happened eight years ago.

perfect bromance pic. xD
The Professor's scholar family so nice and perfect! they have intelligent,well mannered,nice,humble,and good looking children. Awesome upbringing! God bless their souls!

Heo Yeon Woo (Wol) the grown up version kinda looks like Moon Geun Young but not it's not her maybe because of the eyebrows and their faces kinda looks a like in some of her pictures

Spoiler alert!

If only the Chief Shaman Jang said it was Yeon Woo the crown princess in the first place meant to be Queen = The end hahaha!

Overall 4.5 out of 5 stars I really liked the story all in all I love the character developments, supernatural elements and I definitely believe in the old ways so it's really nice to see other people's superstitions,culture and all that. I highly recommend this series! check it out asap!
