The Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts

Hey Guys,

Today is a Book Review:

The Circle Trilogy which consists of Morrigan's Cross, Dance of the Gods, and Valley of Silence is one of the best love stories of all time, in my opinion ( until I read something better that it =D) Nora Roberts's genius is clearly shown as she entertwines romance with fantasy, death and loss.

There is a powerful vampire by the name of Lilith whose only goal is to end humanity by Samhain Day (Halloween). The Gods give the duty of protecting humankind to a circle of six: the sorcerer, the witch, the shifter of shapes, the warrior, the scholar, and te one who was lost. There are 6 months left to the day of battle and the circle must gather.

Each book in the trilogy not only shows the progress of preparing for the big battle, but also focuses on a relationship between two of the six. Morrigan's Cross was essentially Hoyt (the sorcerer) and Glenna's (the witch) story. Dance of the Gods was Larkin (shifter of shapes) and Blake's (the warrior) story. And Valley of Silence was Moira (Scholar) and Cain's (one who was lost, also a vampire turned by Lilith) Story.

This seies was definitely an AWESOME read. I recommend it to anyone who's into romance and fantasy. It is very emotional and easily tugs at your heartstrings. You find yourself rooting for the circle of six and hating their enemies. When their friends die, you feel it and cry with them.

This Trilogy gets a 5/5 from Looney Express Reviews!

Love Contract (Taiwanese)

Hey Guys, It's time for a Drama Review.

I've just finished watching Love Contract, a taiwanese drama starring Mike He and Ariel Lin. It is the one of the most beautiful romance dramas i've watched from start to finish. It's soo touching that you can't hold back tears. Each character has his/her own conflicts that makes you feel for them.

Outwardly, Xiao Feng (Ariel Lin) is a stubborn tomboy and the captain of the Kendo Club at her college. In her group of friends, she is the leader with her demanding nature and abrupt ways. Inwardly however, Xiao Feng is a girl scarred by her past and searching for what she wants most, love. Her friends, Ah Kai (Zhang Rui Jia), Xiao Bai (Lai Zhi Wei ), Mu Tou (Lin Yi Hong), Xin Lei (Zhong Xin Yu, and, Xiao Xiao (Yang Pei Ting) don't know about that part of her past but they are all loyal friends to Xiao Feng; that is, until Xiao Bai and Ah Kai leave the Kendo Club for the Swim Team. Xiao Bai and Ah Kai are immediately regretful when the captain of the Swim Team, Ah Ken, turns out to be a captain as grueling as Xiao Feng. When one night Xiao Feng announces to her friends she wants love the most, Xiao Bai and Ah Ken devise a prank called the love contract. In exchange for finding swim team members to recruit, Ah Ken must court Xiao Feng.

~Summary from

This summary doesn't do the drama justice. It's not your typical happy love story. In addition to true love, this one is filled with angst, lost, sadness and acceptance. It brings out the romantic in us all. It's well worth the watch, guys. I guarantee that you wont be dissapointed.

This drama gets a rare score of 5/5 from Looney Express Reviews=D

Hey peps,
It's time for something new. Today's a MANGA REVIEW!!! WHOOP WHOOP!

Today's manga is a three volume boys love manga published by BLU. Kotori is a superficial person, easily enthralled by looks hence the title of the series. Menkui mean superficial in Japanese. However, what happens when a superficial person falls in love with a handsome his best friend Akaiwa. Can their relationship really work with both having insecurities. I've only read all three volumes, and this manga is very cute. The story isn't really developed or otherwise it would've been a longer series, but it's good for a light entertaining read.

Looney Express Reviews gives Menkui! by Suzuki Tanaka-Sensei a 3/5.

Romantic Princess (Taiwanese Drama)

Hello Folks,
It's that time again! And NO, it's not my period. HARDY HARRHAR!

I've recently watched the 13 episode long Taiwanese drama, Romantic Princess. It's spins the tale of the long lost grand daughter of the richest man in Asia. Raised in the middle class family, Xiao Mai is shocked and upset to find a limo in front of her house and being forced to live in a mansion with four very handsome guys(kyaa!). It gets even worst, as the sole hier to her grandfather corporation, she must marry his chosen successor Jin, who happens to be a jerk. What'll happen next you ask? What the drama, DUH!

Here's the summary from (where I get my drama fix):
Adopted by middle classed parents, Mai has always had a dream to be an heiress. Who knew that one day this dream would come true. Mai's biological grandfather is the head of a prestigous aristocratic family and after many years of searching, he finally finds his long lost granddaughter. As she starts her life as an heiress, everyday is filled with excitement, however, everything seems a bit different from what she had imagined them to be.

Even though, it was a great drama, the ending wasn't anything like what I expected. It was sort of boring compared to the rest of the drama, which was highly exciting!

Looney Express hereby gives Romantic Princess a 3.5/5.

The Little Prisoner by Jane Elliot

Hello Public,
It's time for another LOONEY EXPRESS REVIEW!!!!
Aren't we excited?

This time, it's a book review.
I've recently read the SADDEST book of ALL time! You don't believe me? CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF, THEN!

The book responsible for aggressively pulling at my heart strings is titled THE LITTLE PRISONER. It comes out in August, but I was able to get an advanced copy because I'm a intern at HARPERCOLLINS, who are the publishers of the book.

This book is a written memoir of the horrors a woman went through for 17 years of her life. It traces the life of a girl who was dominated, bullied and abused both sexually and physically by her stepfather from when she was four years. She was able to escape at the age of 21 for the man she loved and her two daughters.

This isn't like other abuse stories, the step father in this story may be considered crueler and sicker than most.

This book receives a 4/5 from LOONEY EXPRESS REVIEWS!

"Only Have feelings for you"- Fahrenheit and Hebe

Hey Guys,
It's time for another review from the LOONEY EXPRESS... It's a song!
Is it possible for a song to have such an effect on a person, even if he/she doesn't understand a word of the lyrics? I'm listening to "Only Have feelings for you"- by Fahrenheit and Hebe. It's a ChinesePOP song sung by a boy band, featuring a female singer with a beautiful voice. You can actually feel the love and feelings flowing into your ears. Even though it's in a foreign language..I can't help but be MOVED somehow.

Here are the lyrics :

A look that can't be understood, a heart that is like a needle at the bottom of the sea

Only guessing, I feel that I have no appetite.FahrenheitIt's a little bit irritating yet it's mesmerizing at the same time.

Not born to be romantic, response too slow
Not discrete enough, choosing the wrong color of the flowers.
But it's contradicting, I like your stupidity.

Fahrenheit: A smile, no matter how beautiful, how sweet, if it's not your's, it's not special Hebe: Tears, no matter how bitter, how salty, with your comfort, it's a clear day again
Fahrenheit: No matter how close, how sticky you are, without a hug, it's still too far.
Together: I only have feelings for you in the whole world.
Fahrenheit: No matter how crazy, how wild we play, one stare from you, I'll control myself
Hebe: No matter how wide and far the road is, as long as you lead, it'll be safe
Fahrenheit: I'll be good and stick close to you, and be gentle and considerate, and definitely not care less
Together: I only have feelings for you

Wu Zun
Gentle yet sticky, likes to cry yet docile

Naive at times, yet wicked at times

Playing hateful towards you, I can't bear to do that

Please absorb some nutrients, let your brain balance
Want you to appear, yet your actions are so slow
How can I admit that I am yours no matter what

Chorus x2

Are these lyrics sweet, or are they SWEEEET?????!!!!!!!!!

This song gets a 4.8/5 from LOONEY EXPRESS REVIEW.

DRAMA TIME: Summer x Summer

I've just finished watching Summer x Summer starring the adorable Joe Cheng and Cai Yi Zhen.

Here's the sypnosis:
Because of one dollar, Xia Ya (Cai Yi Zhen) befallen many unfortunate events. When she feels like all hope has lost, an angel comes and gives her one dollar which saves her life. She falls in love with that angel, who is a model dressed in an angel outfit. But he is no angel - he is the devil in disguise, Ouyang Lei (Joe Cheng), the younger brother of her best friend, Ouyang Yu Yan.
Being the youngest of the family as well as a famous model, Lei is very spoiled and everyone let him have his way, until Xia Ya came along. Xia Ya did what nobody else would do, and Lei starts to develop an interest in her, but he seems very devilish in his ways. What will become of them?

The summary DOES NOT DO THE DRAMA JUSTICE. This is a funny, enjoyable drama, that'll have you smiling after every episode. I loved Joe Cheng in this drama, he was more serious in ISWAK, but in Summer x Summer, he was SO DAMN ADORABLE....especially when he was sulking or pouting, I just wanted to eat him up!!!!

Try this gets a 3.9/5 by Looney Express Reviews!!!

Bull Fighting: Taiwanese Drama

Hey guyz...
So, I've just finished Bull fighting..
it was pretty good, not one of the best I've watched, but pretty good.
I loved the characters, each of them had their own quirky behavior that made it so you couldn't help but like them.

HEre's the sypnosis from Dramawiki:
It started as a 3-on-3 basketball competition between two rival schools; an annual event in which the winner would control the 13th Street basketball court for the following year. To everybody's surprise, the 9-year reigning champion lost this year... and it was all because of one girl. Now, this game has a new purpose.
Yi Sheng Xue (
Hebe), a hot-headed young girl, is an avid Bull Fighting fan. At her side is her loyal childhood friend and personal bodyguard, Jin Zi Cong (Lee Wei). Their lives take a drastic turn when they meet Shen Ruo He (Mike He), whom Sheng Xue falls deeply in love with. However, they encounter many obstacles that stand in the way of them being together.
Will love triumph over evil? And will Zi Cong be able to live with seeing the woman he loves, love another man?

Try it, it's not one of the best, but worth watching. Gets a 3/5 by Looney Express Reviews!!!

Charley's Web by Joy Fielding

Ok, I've just finished reading this awesome book and decided I had to share it with the world...ok maybe not the world, but at least the small population that may be reaidng my blog.

Here's the sypnosis from Barnes and Nobles:
Successful columnist and single mother Charley Webb has spent years building an emotional wall against scathing critics, snooty neighbours, and her disapproving family. But when she receives a letter from Jill Rohmer, a young woman serving time on death row for the murders of three small children, her wall slowly begins to crumble. Jill wants Charley to write her biography so that she can share the many hidden truths about the case that failed to surface during her trial–including the existence of a mysterious man she calls Jack, who may just be the actual killer. Seeing this as an opportunity to gain journalistic credibility, Charley begins her journey into the mind of this deeply troubled woman.

What do you think? Sounds awesome? You bet it is? I don't wanna give anything away, which I tend to do when talking about a book, So I'll end here. HAPPY READING!

3.5/5 by Looney Express Reviews

Devil Beside You: Taiwanese Drama

Hey guys,
it's me again.

So about a week and a half ago I finished watching Devil Beside You. It's a 17 episode taiwanese drama. It was pretty good, I'll give it a 6/10. The characters were likable, the plot was intriging. Although, the ending could have been better. It's a romantic comedy.

Here's the sypnosis from Dramawiki:
After finally getting the courage to confess her feelings, Qi Yue (Rainie Yang) was handing her love letter to Yuan Yi (Kingone), but by a stroke of bad luck, he did not see and walked passed her. The person standing in front of her was the troublemaker of the school, infamously known for his devilish ways – Jiang Meng (Mike He). The devil will get what he wants, and the object of his desire was Qi Yue. Although having a cruel exterior, Ah Meng’s heart is kind and caring, which truly touched Qi Yue. The big problem remained – Ah Meng is the son of the man Qi Yue’s mother is going to marry. Even though they were not related by blood, who will accept this step brother-sister relationship? What is to become of their relationship when other lovers come into the picture?

I suggest you guys try. I also recommend Bullfighting and It Started With a Kiss of course!

It started with a kiss: Taiwanese Drama

One of my favorite dramas is It Started With A Kiss (ISWAK).
Here's the summary from Dramawiki:

Yuan Xiang Qin (Ariel Lin) is a naïve but optimistic high school girl. Ever since she met Jiang Zhi Shu (Joe Cheng) at the freshman orientation, she's fallen in love with the genius with an IQ of 200. After two years of having a crush on him, she finally musters the courage to confess to him at school with a letter. Zhi Shu is not impressed, and his cold-hearted rejection immediately turns her into the biggest joke of the school.
Misfortune comes in a pair: that evening, the new house she has just moved into with her father collapses in a minor earthquake. She and her father are instantly left homeless. Fortunately, her father's old high school friend extends a helping hand and invites both of them to live at his house. Little did Xiang Qin know that the kind Uncle Li is actually the father of Jiang Zhi Shu! Because of the unexpected turn of events, the two of them begin living their lives under the same roof.

I love this drama. It evokes every feeling from the watcher. You laugh, you cry, you sympathize, you hate. Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin relationship is so interesting, and fun to follow. Xiang Qin goes through so many hardships to be with the guy of her dreams, but does she succeed? WATCH THE DRAMA TO FIND OUT.
