Book review: safe haven

Last week i decided to write a book review for the first time ever and well i quite enjoyed writing that post so i figured why not do it again. So this week i thought i would write a review of a book i love, Safe haven.I had heard about this book when the film came out however I was doubtful about buying it as i didn't think it sounded like something i would enjoy but how wrong was I.

synopsis 
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.

But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her... a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of South port. With Jo’s emphatic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards... and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.


Katie seems sweet and unassuming, but you can tell that she's put up a wall around herself and while reading we get to witness this wall begin to break down as Katie forms a relationship with Alex. Eventually we get to see the vulnerability and fear that Katie has been hiding and as soon as i found out what her secret was all i wanted was for her to be safe. Which is where Alex comes in he and Katie fall in love (which isn't really surprising as Nicholas sparks novels are always full of romance) and we get to see Alex protect Katie in the end of the book, i'm obviously not going to spoil the book but lets just say there is more action than you would expect from a Nicholas sparks book. 

overall this is an amazing book, it managed to make me smile and cry and when a book has the ability to do that a tend to think it is a good book which would mean this is one of the best, so if you're a fan of Nicholas Sparks or just romantic novel i would recommend this book to you.

Book review: looking for Alaska!

Today i have decided to do something that i have never done before i thought i would write a review of one of my favorite books ever, looking for Alaska. I chose to read this book after reading the fault in our stars and discussing it with my cousin who offered to let me borrow her copy of the book and i'm so glad i took her up on the offer as i came to fall in love with this book.
First i figure i should explain what the book is about before i go any further. So basically looking for Alaska is about miles who decides to go away to boarding school so that he can seek 'the great perhaps' There he meets his roommate and soon-to-be best friend, Chip, called the Colonel, and Alaska Young, the moody, gorgeous, wild girl who instantly becomes the object of his lust. Until about halfway through the book a tragedy occurs, and those left spend the rest of the book trying to make sense of it, to solve the mystery it leaves behind, and to pull off one last, greatest-ever prank.
One of the reasons i love this book so much is because of how beautifully written it is, so much so that throughout the book i went from laughing to crying to laughing again. By the end of the book i fully felt like i had connected with the characters and had fallen in love with each and every one of them which is something i don't often get with books i tend to just fall in love with one character so i was so happy that i loved these characters so much. Not only did i love the characters in this book but i loved the story line i love how well written it is and how its not just a typical love story like i was expecting it to be. This book will probably stay my favourite book for a long time now and i would recommend this to anyone as i feel like this book isn't just fot teenage girls i think it could be enjoyed by people of all ages.

New York!

I've decided to make post about my favorite city in the world New York City, although i have never actually visited New York i have been in love with the city for as long as i can remember and if i ever have enough money to go i will jump at the chance!
I've always dreamed of visiting new York and going shopping on 5th avenue, visiting times square at night, going ice skating in central park and of course going to the top of the empire state building. As well as all of these things I've always wanted to go to Brooklyn and see the amazing music scene, for example i would love to visit the Brooklyn academy of music.



Benefit!

This christmas i got lots of beauty products and a number of them happened to be benefit, including the sexy little stowaways and set of lip glosses which i unfortuneatly can't remember the name.
I am a huge fan of all of the benefit products but my favourites have to be both the they're real and bad gal lash mascaras, i love bad gal lash mainly because of the huge brush which enables me to get long full looking lashes which is something i have never felt i have got from a mascara in the past.
I actually got the they're real mascara as a birthday present from my friend katie last year and i have been using it ever since, one of my favourite things about this mascara is that it stops my lashes from looking clumpy which is obviously something i look for in a mascara.
Apart from mascaras one of my favourite products from benefit would have to be the porefessional which is an amazing product and really does minimize the size of my pores. Overall benefit products are some of my favourite beauty products and despite the rather expensive pricing i would recommend them to anyone.

One tree hill!

One tree hill is literally my favourite programme of all time. I fell in love with it when i decided to watch the first episode at the beginning of this year and since then i have been completely hooked on it, so much so that as soon as i finished watching all 9 seasons i started again, and then after that i started again.
I have never loved a tv programme as much as i love one tree hill, it has helped me and taught me so much which is something i never thought that a programme could do. I literally love every single thing about it, i love every character, every episode, i love every story line and the way that one tv show has managed to effect me so much. I can't wait until i can get the box set so i can watch it whenever i want as i now i am going to be re-watching this show for a long time.

Friends!

After hearing my cousins talk about how amazing friends was for ages i Recently decided i would watch it. I honestly have no idea why it has took me this long to finally start to watch it but i'm so glad that i did, i actually love it already, it never fails to make me laugh and can cheer me up no matter what. I love each character for different reasons and i'm sure this is one of them programmes that i'm going to end up watching over and ovr again.

last day of school!

This time last week i finally finished school, it's so strange to think that as soon as i have finished my exams i will have the choice of never going to school again, I've spent 12 years going to school with a lot of the people i still see everyday and it is so strange to think that in just over a month i will probably never see some of these people again.
Although i am sad about this (well at least some people) i had such an amazing last day of school with all of my friends and actually wish i could go back and repeat the whole day.
