books & must haves …
i went for a weekend trip to Baguio with my family, its always what we do this time of the year. Every trip i make sure i secure everything in my bag. My bag includes all my essentials, from my kikay kit, wallet, iPod (with great road trip/summer playlist) and books!
i made brief trip to my ‘Disneyland’ which is a bookstore to buy books and there i found two books of my few favorite authors. Aleph by Paulo Coelho and That Kind of Guy by Mina Esguerra! :-D
haven’t read books in a while, so you could have imagine my excited face to see all the books in front me.
That Kind of Guy…
Good girl Julie never expected her hot former-player boyfriend to propose marriage. But when he did, she turned him down for reasons even she couldn’t figure out. Will she settle for a nice, safe guy instead? Or will she let him find his way back into her carefully guarded heart?
i’m in love with Anton U. Santos! hahaha!
that’s what i always say whenever i read this book! he makes me fall over and over and over again! to be honest, i always have this sort of thing for bad-boys-who-can-do-romantic-stuff-for-the-girl-he-loves-kind-of-guy — i know, its absurd but there’s no harm to dream one for yourself, right?
when i read the book, i couldn’t STOP! i have to finish it and read it again.
Julie seems to be a goody good girl for me who always do the right thing in every worst situation but after she went out with Anton she seems to be stepping over to the dark side. i love how Julie discover lots of things just being with Anton, that she went out from her comfort zone and be the girl that she never thought she could be. The same with Anton, who is a bad boy/playboy who turns out to be a perfect gentleman who can do romantic stuff and all.
Being the 'manang' that Julie was, she feared to give her heart to someone whom she thinks she doesn’t know ‘yet’, that she feels like she’s dating a ‘masked’ man while everybody knows who he really was when he doesn’t wear any.
its not hard to fall for Anton, the way he was described, what he was capable of and how he wanted to give up his old ways for someone he sees his future with!
hay…i’m talking romantic stuffs again…but what can i do?
Mina Esguerra brings that one out of me.
PS : I must give credit to my dear friend Ryan for giving me 'My Imaginary Ex' for a Christmas of 2009 as a gift — and as they say the rest is history! :-)
