I was on a sick leave, but only just for a day last week. My bed suddenly seemed the best place to be. Because I'm used to being very busy all the time, I'm quite bored so it did not stop me from doing something while lying down. On the first half of the day, in the morning, where I'm usually most busy, I watched all four episodes of Season 6 of my favorite, The Walking Dead. And with that, I was able to convince myself that my favorite character, the former pizza delivery boy, has managed to survive and am now believing that Glenn is still alive.
In the afternoon, when I got tired of the zombies, I re-read a few novels I've read before including another favorite, The Hunger Games' Mockingjay.
The first paperback I read was a Mills and Boon 2 in 1 romance novels. The first story, "Beware Of The Boss" was good, it's about a boss who aren't so nice to his staff who mostly just come and go because he can't stand him. Then came this former swimming champion whose a little down because she's still moving on from her decision to change career and applied as an office staff with fake experiences on her resume, but she was able to manage. So that's it, you can guess what happened, the boss became softer and they fell in love. The other story was "The Reunion Lie". It was a about an attractive career woman who aren't very lucky with her love life. She's been bullied from school before so they've had a planned reunion with them and the populars at their school days are trying to put her down because she aren't married yet at 32, she just pulled and kissed a gorgeous guy from the club and told them he's her fiance. This was a typical romantically exciting "kilig" story who would have you hooked on the book until you finished. At least, of course for those who love romantic novels like I. Well, you might have guessed that they fell in love... they did.
The third story for my romance-novel-marathon-flu-day was also from Mills and Boon, A Deal with Benefits. It's about an attractive lady who own and manage an island resort, then came a handsome guy who claims the resort as his. He won over but the girl won't just give up which ended with her being at his beck and call. This was like watching a soap opera. Rich, formerly rich, deceived and out for revenged. I liked this story the most. The one I've read from beginning to end in one sitting.
The last but not the least was The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. I'm kind of trying to remember every sequences because I'm going to watch the film soon. Oh, I'm so excited. However, of the three books, I love Catching Fire the most. But being a fan, and being able to follow the Hunger Games series, I'm looking forward to this part 2 where I'd like to see Katniss Everdeen point his arrow to Coin instead of Snow. Too bad Primrose Everdeen has to die.
Since I was little, I would save money to buy my favorite paperbacks. I have a large collection of Sweet Dreams before. I have not outgrown it, although, I've matured a little. hahaha! I have a lot here at home, it would probably fit a large box which my husband would like to donate to charity (hahaha!) because it's eating up too much space. The series I've followed are The Hunger Games, The-ever-popular Christian Grey and the Demi-Gods in Percy Jackson series.
