Book HeART ♥ #21 - Kenjio Book Sculptures

I was browsing book arts on Tumblr when I saw this great book sculpture by Kenjio. I said I have to feature this here on my book blog to share with you guys how awesome the sculptures are!

I'm just supposed to post a photo or two of the sculptures but when I visited Kenjio's Etsy site, can't help but share my favorites. Actually almost all of them are my favorites. I wish I could buy even one sculpture. It would be a great and inspiring decoration. Also the inspiration of the artist in creating these masterpieces are just admirable. All about the concept of new knowledge.

Based on the descriptions, the artist created clay sculptures and he used old books and vintage encyclopedias that are cut and folded. I really admire his awesome book scultptures! See more of Kenjio's creations on his etsy site.

What I'm Reading Now: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

I decided to read this next because the movie will be coming out next month. I'm excited for the movie. Emma Watson with her American accent would be there. I'm already on page 20 and I'm loving it. I want to share with you the trailer. Love the soundtrack! :)

Quote... Unquote - This Lullaby

“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater...The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that's the key. It's like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.”

When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?

I liked it but not as much as The Truth About Forever which is one of my favorites from the author. The book of course has the usual elements of Sarah Dessen's novels -  girl with some issues about her family or friends, then she meets the boy who she will fell in love with, or will help her get over those issues. Same, same. But what I liked about this one is that it's an interesting read and it actually helped me cope with some things.

When I started reading this, I was having some issues with things (school, lovelife, etc.). So when I get to know Remy it's like I want to be like her. Just carefree, mean, has control over her feelings. But then, it's not easy being like her. When you have too much control over your feelings, you tend to ignore other people's feelings and you become selfish and insensitive. Sometimes you have to open up with the possibility that when you care and love someone, you will get hurt. It's better than feeling nothing at all and losing that someone. 

The romance part of this book is lacking. I liked Dexter's challenges, although sometimes I can't figure out his personality. Overall, this was an easy read and just like other Dessen books, you get to learn something about love and life. :)

Quote... Unquote - Fifty Shades Trilogy

"Why don’t you like to be touched?"

"Because I’m fifty shades of fucked-up, Anastasia" 

Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy by E. L. James

Author: E. L. James
Published May 26th 2011 by The Writers Coffee Shop Publishing House (First Book)
Series: Fifty Shades of Grey
Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY: When college student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating.  The unworldly Ana realizes she wants this man, and Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian’s secrets and explores her own desires.

FIFTY SHADES DARKER: Daunted by Christian’s dark secrets and singular tastes, Ana has broken off their relationship to start a new career. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and while Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Ana is forced to make the most important decision of her life.

FIFTY SHADES FREED: Now, Ana and Christian have it all—love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to turn Ana’s deepest fears into reality.

First I want to warn you young people (yes, you kids and young adults, below 18) that this book is certainly not for you. So, don't even think about reading this book or plan to buy it because I will assure you, you won't like it. And don't continue reading this review please!

Okay. My inner goddess is kinda pissed here. lol I just want to defend my three hearts there. I was actually about to rate it two but I'll be dishonest because I did like the book in a weird kind of way. I've heard the rave about this book so I instantly pushed it at the top of my to-read pile. Not knowing what this fucker is all about! I didn't even know it was erotica at first. The genre is not new to me. I've read some decent erotic books. I just didn't expect that BDSM will be as cheesy as this trilogy.

The trilogy centers on the beginning and development of fifty shade Christian Grey and inner goddess Anastasia Steele's relationship. The series is full of, like I mentioned BDSM, intense sexual scenes and some other kinds of sexual shit that some may like. Of course it's a love story as well if you like it to be that way.

I have lots of things to say about the books, mostly negative but I don't think that's necessary. I already read lots of insults about the trilogy. I still respect the author for her work. Don't get me wrong. The writing is shitty. It's just that, her enthusiasm of her work is great that she created this whole mess, this whole hype about Fifty. It's a Twilight fanfic but I don't see the similarities besides the hot male lead character with his stupid female lover. I'm a kind of reader who doesn't actually blame the author of her works. I think I'd blame myself more because I chose to read it.

I think many liked the series because they fell in love with Christian Grey. Well, who wouldn't? I did! A guy who's so wealthy that he can buy you anything that you want and provide your needs - material and sexual needs. Yeah, we fell in love with the money and the looks and the body and the..., I can't think of anything Anyway, I think I liked the book because of him. Because he's so generous, handsome, hot, wealthy, sexy, what else?  Fucked up! This is a superficial kind of love.

Now let's talk about Anastasia fucking Steele. Another fucked up and stupid character that doesn't know anything but to bite her lips, spread her legs, and be the drama queen. Her stupid fucking inner goddess is so irritating. Like so overly irritating. If you plan to read the book skip the parts where inner goddess is mentioned.

Told you, I liked the book in a weird kind of way. hehe I don't recommend the book. But if you like to know about what the hype is all about, go ahead and read. But if you're just curious and just want to know why people hate it, don't waste your time on this. If you like rich, hot, sexy, fictional male character, you might want to try it. lol  I can't believe I said that! XD

P.S. I couldn't believe I was able to write a review of this. I apologize for the swearing. This is the first time I swore on my review. It's actually necessary for this review I tell you! Now we wait for the movie. : )

Book HeART ♥ # 20 - Biografias by Alicia Martín

I've been seeing this masterpiece called Biografias by Alicia Martín where books seem to pour out of the windows of a building making a giant sculpture. It looks weird at first but I guess it's a fun way to display unused books. Here are some of her works:
