Book Review: Bitter Sweet Love (The Dark Elements #0.5)

Since most of the books I’m reading were series, I’ve developed a habit of reading two to three books at a time. Not advisable, I know. Others might find it confusing, but it’s a different situation for me. I’m not really certain, but if it’s an exciting series, I won’t last long not getting and reading it though I have a current read. When I was waiting for Cress by Marissa Meyer, I’ve stumbled upon a new series by Jennifer Armentrout: The Dark Elements.

Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny–fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.
And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart–or shatter it all over again…



Bitter Sweet Love is apparently the prequel of this series. Yeah. Crazy. It’s like an overview of the series or not the series at all but how a certain situation will turn up eventually. I hate when authors do this. Why create a prequel book if you can already start with book one? God! It’s only 105 pages. You see? Silly.

Reunited with My First Love

I am so glad that I get to squeeze my first love on my daily routine though I got Hubby annoyed of me being so consumed about it most of the time. I can’t explain the happiness it brought me when I started reading again. Yeah. Reading is my first love. Deadlines and the rest of school stuff hindered me from reading the stuff that I love back when I was still studying and of course my limited finances to support my hobby. Back then, books cost a fortune especially those hard-bounds and glossy covered books. I just used to borrow books from friends. When I graduated, obviously I have been busy working so I still can’t manage to have spare times for reading.

Harry Potter

Just recently, thank goodness for technology, I managed to download e-books on my phone for free (the best things are free see?) so I can still read while I’m on the go. Of course, I still wanted to have my own mini library in my room where I can stay there forever. Funny as it may seem, but I was able to re-read J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Funny I say because I have read the books so many times and also watched the movies, but I’m still so excited on each and every pages. I still felt sad when Dumbledore died on the Half Blood Prince. Also, I felt so bad when I’ve finished the last book for I can’t get enough of the series. I’m still hoping that Rowling would continue the series though I know that it would be overkill. I so love the series that I am thinking about naming my future son Harry or my future daughter Hermione. Haha!
