Chosen (#3) by P.C and Kristin Cast

"Look, I wasn't being nice. I just didn't want Stevie Rae foaming at the mouth and eating my parents' help. As mother says dependable illegals are really hard to find."

'Bloodlust and dark forces are at work at the House of Night, and fledging vampyre Zoey Redbird's adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Those who appear to be friends are turning out to be enemies. And, oddly enough, sworn enemies are also turning into friends. So begins the gripping third installment of this "highly addictives series" (Romantic Times BOOKreviews), in which Zoey's mettle will be tested like never before. 

Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey doesn't have a clue how to help her, but she does know that anything she and Stevie Rae discover must be kept secret from everyone else at the House of Night, where trust has become a rare commodity. Speaking of rare, Zoey finds herself in the very rare position of having three boyfriends, a situation with the potential to spell social disaster. Then vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. But as Zoey and her friends find out, things are not always what they seem...' - Book's Summary.

To be honest, I don't like this third book of PC and Kristin Cast's House of Night Series. It doesn't really catch my attention this time.

This book started with Zoey's birthday in which always sucks every year because everyone think it's cool to have a birthday on Christmas (BirthMas?). So, her presents always are in Christmas theme and the only people who know about this are Heath and her grandma. Other than that, her relationship with her mother and stepfather are still not in good terms, met the not-so-dead Stevie Rae sucking some stranger’s neck and again, problems with her boyfriends Erik and Heath AND her latest, Professor Loren Blake. Aphrodite got kick-into the Rituals to replace Stevie Rae. The death of a professors, the involvement of Son of Erebus in the House of Night, changes of a fledgling to adult vampyre and a fledgling turning back into human and lastly, secrets of Neferet will also be reveal in this book. Oh, wondering who that ‘fledgling’ turning back to human? All you have to do is…read it!

In conclusion, not really like this book but you couldn’t miss this too because it’s part of the House of Night series… Duh~

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (#1) by Rick Riordan

‘My father?’ I asked, completely bewildered.
‘Poseidon,’ said Chiron. ‘Earthshaker, Stormbringer, Father of Horses, Perseus Jackson, Son of the Sea God.’

One question, would you rather read the book or watch the movie? My choice would be the first. Before Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief premiered in Brunei, I decided to read the book first before I watch the movie. Although, my brother finished it first in 3 days before I did. Which is unbelievable because he never ever reads ALL!! Anyway,...

Percy Jackson thought he’s a normal boy with learning and reading difficulty especially BUT he can read Greek letters. One day, during a school trip to a museum his teacher, Mrs. Dodds, turns into a creature with wings and he killed her/it with Mr.Brunner’s pen. Yes, a pen! When his mum brings him for a retreat to the beach, they were being chased down by a Minotaur and Percy’s best friend, Grover, was there. With half of his body is goat. Percy’s mum vanished and he woke up to a place called Camp Half-Blood, where children who are born with either one of their parents are God. At that camp, they learned to fight and survive and being put into different camp according to their ‘parents’. And there, Percy learned that he is the son of the Sea God, Poseidon and was accused of stealing the Lightning Bolt of Zeus, God of the Sky. Percy has to find the Lightning Bolt before the summer-solstice or there’ll be war between the gods. And that does not sound so good.

Ok, before I read this book, I read other people’s review and most of them said it’s more like Harry Potter series so I decided to take my time of not buying this book until I watched the trailer online. Because I thought Mr.Riordan may have steal JK.Rowling’s idea but it turns out, it’s not that bad. And it is nothing like Harry Potter except for his friendship with Annabeth and Grover. It’s like Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. It’s really easy to read and understand the book and even a nine-year-old can read it. Hey, that’s what the book says! I will show you the picture. Anyway, when I watch the movie I need to comment on it although it will be Spoilers for all of you who haven’t read the book or the movie. So, if you already watched or read it, click on ‘Read more’ below. And the stars I’ll give this book will be…

this is what I was talking about!

Here are my lists of complains on the movie…*Spoiler Alert!*

F in Exams: The Best Test Paper Blunders by Richard Benson

"Packed full of hilarious examples of the creative ways students answer exam questions... More revision needed, methinks!"

- Western Morning News

I can totally relate to the situation when as a student you couldn't think of the answer to the exam question but feel guilty leaving it blank, unanswered. Then I will just write down any answers I can think of but, twist the facts a little but I will never go out of topic in my answer. But the exam answers given by the students shown on the book are too just funny! I would never dare to do the same thing in my exam papers.

The book is in small size with 127 pages and I bought in on for B$14+ with free shipping. It listed funny and creative exam answers from wide range of subjects from English, History, Geography and many others.

Some of my favourite answers from the book: Give the names of two gases that might contribute to global warming=1. bottom gas 2. cow burps / What is the highest frequency noise that a human can register?= Mariah Carey / The race of people known as Malays come from which country?= malaria
There are many other funnier exam answers in the book but you'll have to buy it to read more for yourselves.

I never usually buy humour books but once in a while why not buy one. I just read too much fictions that I think I need a change of scenery for a while. I might as well review more humour books in the future. But one thing that bothers me is the book smells like sushi as I flipped it open, very addictive.
