The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

I have always wanted to read this book. Alas! Now, I have.


Hadley Sullivan is forced to take a flight across the ocean to attend a wedding she never dreamed being a part of. To attend a wedding of her father and his new wife.

She arrives at the airport 4 minutes late and missed her plane. And so she signs up for the next one.

While waiting, she meets this cute Brit boy named Oliver who's incidentally on the same flight and seat row.

They bonded real well in the plane on the way to London. They got to know each other, their problems with their dysfunctional families.

Will they ever meet again? Why is Oliver carrying a suit with him? Is he attending a wedding too? Or worse, a funeral? Will Hadley survive the wedding since she hates her father for just leaving them for his new love?


I'm not going to lie, I'm a real sucker for the romantic. Though I wasn't satisfied with the plot (maybe I just wanted more exaggerations or something more dramatic? Ugh. What's wrong with me?). I must say that I very much enjoyed reading this one.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

I cannot believe I bought this book months ago, I mean "months ago", really. And just left it there in that corner of my shelf to perish (metaphorically, of course) and collect dust.


As you dive into the magical universe of this novel, you'll get dazzled with every cinematic moments it will put you through.

This is a story of two people competing, two people who are put against each other. The objective of the game is endurance. Not who's better. No verdict either by their mentors, the victory lies within who remains fighting.

But, there is no actual fight. No, this novel isn't about violence.

It is about magic.

Prospero the Enchanter (stage name) or Hector Bowen, received a package. It wasn't a typical package. It was his 5-year-old daughter, Celia.

Celia got his natural talent in magic and soon Hector was up to another challenge of dueling students of his own against a student of his friend Alexander.

Hector is so sure he will win this time, why not when it's from his own flesh and blood.

Alexander went to an orphanage (though not really described as an orphanage in the book but rather an institution of some sort) and he picked a boy whose name is Marco.

The duel is set in a circus.

Le Cirque de Reves (The Circus of Dreams) is propagated by Chandresh Christophe Lefevre. Chandresh hired the perfect set of like-minded people in terms of aesthetic production.

Marco and Celia got themselves hired soon enough and soon enough as well they create tent after tent of magic full of mystique.

But how long will this battle go on? How long do people around not notice what's happening and when they do, are they safe from it? How long can Marco and Celia hold on?

Read it if you dare to be devoured completely.


As I've said before in twitter, such sophisticated literature this book is. Very cinematic. Very passionate without it having too much graphical provocativeness. It is sensual in the classiest manner.

One thing I know about passion, be it love or hatred, if you restrain it... it gets nothing but stronger.

I love it. I love Chandresh, I think he is gay. Tsukiko is also a lesbian, I guess. Such unique characters, all very different but they seem to be treating each other like family, in a sense.

If you ask me, Mr. Barris and Tara Burgess gets married eventually.

I had fun being the reader, the one who enters Le Cirque de Reves in the book and exiting it with a card on my hand with Bailey as the captain of this beautiful dream.
