Rating : 3.5 / 5 stars

I would like to sincerely thank author Erica Laurie for this copy of eBook in exchange for an honest review.

I jumped at the chance of taking my first read on an English written book about Korean culture because of the unique topic. Reading this book didn’t let me down, I felt like I was watching a Korean historical drama unfolding.

A logger is in debt to his landlord, and he must pay up or hand over his daughter, Eun Na as payment.

Hardworking and kind, Eun Na attracts the attention of a mysterious man from the mountains. When an accident renders her father unable to work, the handsome young man steps in and offers his assistance. Yet he is not what he seems.

Catch Of The Day – Book Haul While I Was Away

I couldn’t resist whenever there’s an MPH Warehouse Sale. As I remembered there were less crowd in the sweltering hot afternoon and the place was only powered by electrical fans.

Despite the heat that made browsing uncomfortable, I kept digging looking for treasures from the book pile.

Chinese books were scattered all over but I had fun searching for them because at a 90% discount, these books were the cheapest I’ve came across any sales!

Super delighted to have found especially Japanese to Chinese translated literature!

The amount of books that we bought.

Back To Blogging

I am glad to say that my piano practical exam is over 😀

Crossed my fingers and hope I will pass and graduate.

It took some time to sink in, the fact that I don’t have to practice hard everyday and keep pushing other stuff aside, because I’m freeeeeee now!

Well not exactly… I still have another theory paper to complete the whole course but then again writing exam isn’t as scary as practicals.

Now that I don’t have to worry about exams I could read, start blogging again and so much more!

It’s nice to be back ❤
