Enter a girl that has spent time with popular demigods like Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Luke Castellan; skilled shadowhunters like Jace Wayland and Clary Fray; and hot lads like Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan.

Wait. Did i just say it right? Demigods? Shadowhunters? One Direction? Oops. I forgot to mention that I’m daydreaming. Huhuhu. The people mentioned above are what comprises my day to day thoughts. This is the life of THE LAST SIREN. (Shh, this is actually Martha Isabel V. Cabañero) Everything about me revolves around two words: books and music. The new songs of 1D like Heart Attack, Nobody Compares, and Live While We’re Young didn’t fail to melt my heart into a puddle. Ooh, dorky? Nah. I just like to say things to the extent.

But wait. Where does teen fiction come into place? As said (scratch that- dreamed), demigods like Percy are part of my life. This is due to the fact that I have finished reading the complete series of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, and The Kane Chronicles. Unfortunately, I’m not yet finished reading The Mortal Instruments: The City of Bones. But nonetheless, the shadowhunters in the story are now included in my ‘like list’. Just recently, I’ve read Burn for Burn, Fathomless, and Shatter Me. Although not that quite mesmerizing, they’re still good books.

     I read a wide range of books like fiction, romance, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror. But do you know which one’s my favorite?  Teen fiction, of course! These sorts of books have a great impact on me since I, myself, am a teen. One good thing about reading books? Eventually, your system will enhance and before you even know it, you’re already sitting in a corner writing your own novel.

I am currently writing a teen fiction that I hopefully will publish online. What made me decide to write a story, you ask? BOOKS. The kind of books that inspire me through their witty conversations and interesting storylines made me decide it was time for me to create my own masterpiece. It feels good to be finally in control on the character’s actions and to be able to decide about the conflict of the story. This sort of activity will help me become a better writer, so that one day I’d be worthy enough to receive one of those New York Bestseller awards. *laughs* Why not, right? It’s a dream worth waiting for. But as for now, I’ll do things step by step. Starting by giving you this brief review on the book My Life in Black and White by Natasha Friend. Enjoy!

It was a holiday when my mother allowed me to buy a new book. I’ve been searching in the bookstore for almost an hour now. But still, no book caught my attention. I was just about to pick a random book when suddenly I noticed My Life in Black and White. The front cover was mesmerizing so immediately grabbed that book instead. I later found out that I’ve made a wise decision to buy that specific book. The story was amazing and true to nature. After reading it, I shared its awesomeness to my other friends. And upon reading the book themselves, they agreed to my acclaim. What I like about the book is that the main character, Lexi, held on to herself even after losing her best friend, Taylor, and boyfriend, Ryan. The plot was too realistic and thus, easy to understand and relate to. You can never anticipate what would happen next as you flip to the next page. I was engrossed in reading this book that it only took me a few hours to finish reading it. And as the story comes to an end, my expectations for the story start to click in. I am  quite disappointed that Ryan didn’t take measures on restoring his relationship with Lexi. Instead, he doesn’t fight for her back and is contented on just being ‘friends’. I was secretly hoping that he would change his mind about Lexi and love her again, but, alas, he didn’t. He’s totally not a guy of any girl’s worth. I picture a perfect guy with true emotions that knows how to handle a fragile girl’s heart (*insert Jace Wayland of the Mortal Instruments♥ ). Overall, I think the book is ah-mazing so thumbs up, Natasha! ツ
