Favorite Quotes – The Reef by Nora Roberts (Book)

Following are some of my favorite parts and quotes from the book.

The funny thing about some of these are that they’re quite similar to George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice And Fire. 😀 People who have read the books or watched the series will notice!! 😀

Review – The Reef by Nora Roberts (Book)

The Reef by Nora Roberts largely revolves around diving, salvaging and revenge.

The story starts with introducing a well known salvager family The Lassiters, James (father), Mathew (son) and Buck (uncle). In an unfortunate event James loses his life while looking for an exotic treasure, Angelique’s Curse, an amulet believed to be cursed.

Mathew refuses to accept it was an accident and believes his father was killed.

The remaining two Lassiters meet the Beaumonts, Tate – a Marine Archeologist and her parents, and form a partnership in salvaging the amulet. Mathew holds back information about his past which leads their partnership in jeopardize when the assumed killer of his father surfaces with Bad News written all over him.

It is a story of loss, despair, danger and love.

It is nicely written but by the almost-middle of the book part of it gets boring. Though after that as the story unfolds after every chapter, it gets more and more interesting.

It was a good book. 🙂

I would rate it 3.5 out of 5

Review – River’s End by Nora Roberts (Book)

Frankly speaking, I thought I wouldn’t like this book much as I find all Nora Roberts books very familiar. This one did have a different story but I was quite sure it will have the same stuff like the rest. But I was in for a surprise. And I am glad about it. 🙂

The story revolves around a girl named Olivia, whose parents were both actors and one of the most fabulous couple of Hollywood. At the peak of his career, her father got addicted to alcohol and drugs. This led to a lot of trouble in her parents’ martial life.

One night Olivia finds her mother brutally murdered by a monster that was standing and looking down at his wife. The monster was found.

Olivia’s grandparents take her away and shelter her from the memories of the past. But with the passing time Olivia starts digging deep in her mother’s life. This leads to her getting in touch with Noah Brady, a writer and the son of the police officer who found Olivia in the house on that awful night years ago.

Noah not only wants to write the story of the tragic end of the golden couple of Hollywood but wants to fill the loneliness in Olivia’s life with all his love for her.

Together they unravel the truth behind the night Olivia’s mother died and face the monster now on a loose and after Olivia.

I really, really liked this book. The whole storyline was great. Especially the last few chapters were superb. They keep you glued to the book till the very end. I just couldn’t put this book down till I was done with it. I simply loved it.

I would rate it 5 out of 5 🙂

Whyy Are You NOT Posting Much, Rebel?! – Explanation =P

Hello Everyone!

Hope everyone is doing well. I know, I know, I have been away for a really long while. But I had been caught up with reading so many books and doing very little of anything else. I think that is what happens to a person when they stop reading seriously for a few years and then start off again out of the blues.

I had been away from reading like a maniac for some time but as I finally am on my summer break after two and a half years I really want to make the most of it. And reading is a very crucial part of my to-do list this summer. In fact I think there is nothing else I have been doing from a few weeks. Haha! Good enough. Though my room is in a state of catastrophe and so is my house because of my negligence. It won’t be long before my mum kicks me out of the house for being so careless.

I know when I started this blog I wanted to write as often as I could. But recently I haven’t been posting much. And I think it’s going to be hard anyway because of Ramadan activities. I feel sleepy 24-7. In fact I think I am sleeping for more than 10-11 hours these days. :O but then again I am not really having any great sleep. I go to bed exhausted, I wake up even more exhausted.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you guys what I had been reading lately. 😀 Yes, of course the reviews will follow later on with my favorite quotes as well. For starters I would like to tell you guys that I have almost ditched my Summer-Reads list altogether after borrowing a couple of books from a friend. And now I’ll be diverting all my attention into completing them as I have to return them back soonish too. 😀 Another thing, the books I ordered from US are here as well finally!!! 😀 and I have read two of them so far lol.
