Mummy, Come Home || Book Review. [BONUS]

Mommy , come home.

Its a book where you will definitely tear up and appreciate life. After reading this book, I had this self love planted in myself. I started loving life and appreciating everything around me; the people, the environment. Its about a real life person, that has been through SO much in life. She was raped, she was married to the wrong guy which was horrible to her ( spoiler : he asked her to be prostitute just so he can have money to drink what?!) So she ran away and she was sold by her own friend. It was horrible what she had gone through. If you are at a rough time in life now and think you are alone, READ THIS ! It did give me hope and the feeling that I am not the only one dealing tough times. There are people who been through worst and I should be grateful. This book opened my eyes to the reality, the true world. Its not all good and pretty, sometimes, the world can be a dark and dangerous place. My heart sank when I read this book and I hope you read it and find hope because the girl in the story did NOT give up even after so many storms and hurracanes in her life. Heck what gives us the right to give up on small problems we face daily? If she could get pass her storm, so could we.

Nicholas Sparks || Book Review Part 2

So this is part 2 (!) of my Nicholas Sparks books ! Hope you enjoy !

Dear John

I love hate this book. It makes me go "whyyyyyyyyyyyyy?!" and literally tear up reading this. Its so moving and so sad. It may be in my top 10 ! This about this girl who fell in love with a boy during summer (normal right? not !) The father of the boy had a mental sickness so there was some arguments between the two love birds. Also, after summer, the boy was heading off to serve the army, and it would probably be for months and of course dangerous. This set off a task to see how strong their love is.

Rate : 4.5 /5

Safe Haven

This book is so exciting. Its kind of a mix of thriller and love (?) Its about a girl running away from her mean and over controlling husband who is very violent to her as he hits her and she is utterly afraid of him. Then one day she had enough and decided to run away. Her husband was a cop so she changed her fair , her name and basically lived a new life far away. In the new town, she met someone. He is tall and good looking but a father of two. Tho that does not bother her but she is still afraid to fall in love after what she had gone through. This book got my heart racing for her when her husband found her! It was very exciting.

Rate : 4/5

The Best of Me

A long time ago during High School, Amanda and Dawson are high school sweet hearts but due to Dawson's family background, Amanda's parents refuse them to be together.Amanda moved away and got married but was not happy. After twenty-five years, she went back and bump into Dawson. (opss?) and they had a week together which made Amanda doubt her marriage and her love for Dawson. But love is not that simple. Dawson had been hunted by some mean and nasty neighbors who eventually wanted to kill Dawson. Its a very exciting book and the ending is satisfying.

Nicholas Sparks || Book Review Part 1


I loveeee Nicholas Sparks book, they are very moving and very romantic. If you haven't read it, you are missing out but it's also a good thing because you will be chasing after a future husband like the man in his books but then your dream guy will be shatter by reality in the end. So thats, that, lets get on with the reviews!

A bend in the Road

Have you ever thought of a teacher falling in love with a parent? Well it may sound gross but this book. Oh man. It makes my feels go crazy and its sooooo romantic.Miles lost his wife due to an accident and his son seems to struggle in school so his son's teacher Sarah talked to Miles.Who knew that Sarah had a bond with Miles and kept it a secret till one day they both fell in love. Its a book worth reading. 

Rate : 4/5

Message in a Bottle

This book is very romantic, I wish boys would be like what said in books. So its about a girl who is a journalist and writes for a newspaper. One day she found a bottle with a note in it beside the beach. She was drawn by the note and determined to find the man who wrote it so she could write about it in the paper. When she did found where he is, after getting along, she fell helplessly in love. And she had a hard time telling him the main objective she was there. She then had to choose between her job and the man she loves.

Rate : 3.6/5

At First Sight 

Its about a man who had a failed marriage and refuse to believe in love again until he met a girl at his friend's place named Lexie. After getting along pretty well, they fell in love and got engaged. Happy every after does not come easy in Nicholas Sparks books (duhh) so a mysterious email was sent to Jeremy (the man) that set off challenges and ebbs for the Jeremy and Lexie, testing their love and trust of one another. The ending will both shock you and you'll wait to pay Sparks a visit.

Rate : 3.6/5

The Choice

This book. I know there already a movie out but reading it is much heart breaking. It is so moving and so fun to read. So this man who is in the army had a picture of a girl and his friend said it was a lucky charm as it saved him during the war. After he got back from the army, he set of a search for his lucky charm. When he did found the girl, he didn't have the courage to tell him about the picture so he , i would say accidentally , became the staff in a dog care which was owned by the girl herself. Each day, they got closer and yes you guessed it, they fell in love. I will stop here because if I do continue I will spoil the fun and the tears. heheheh.

Rate : 4/5

Night at Rodanthe

When you read this book, it will feel like a short story but contain so much goodies. I wish I could visit Rodanthe and find a man. joking. Its about a girl needing a holiday so she went to Rodanthe which is a beautiful, beach side place. And while she was there, she rent a house of her friends, and the man who rent it to her was there, helping her with links, and there was a storm and stuff so as the got along, she fell in love. So in the end of the trip, she had to choose to stay or to leave. Read to find out what she choose but in the end, I promise swear, you will be shocked and you will literally cry a river.

Little Seaside Trip

 Hello Beautiful People !

As I said, I was on holiday and now I'm back ! yay ! here's some picture !

My simple OTD

We started our road at 6 in the MORNING! Then we stop by a beach, had a stroll through some fish village. After that we had lunch which was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G
I don't know maybe its just me because I absolutely LOVEEEEEE seafood !

 After a big lunch we went to a Chinese temple. It was said to bring good luck and it's massive!

And who goes to the seaside without having coconut ? I had TWO in fact ! I was bloated but it was soooo good. 

Dinner was at a local restaurant. I don't know about any of you but whenever I said I will take pictures of the dishes, I started taking the first two or three then I forgot all about it. Diving myself into the food without taking any snaps. So sorry. But here is one good dish. hehe.

Here, This is called "Rojak" , which is basically mixed fruits with a very thick homemade sauce, some biscuits and nuts on top. 

That is all for today ! Hope you enjoyed  it and hope it wasn't too boring.

 I'm heading off to a massive book fair tomorrow. I am utterly excited ! I will post what I got and will do more book reviews tomorrow. I made a little video / vlog of my trip which you can see it up here. Thanks for reading !

Hugs and kisses.

Cherish the Ones You Love, and Love the Ones You Cherish

I had a fun day today. I went shopping with mum which was nice to spend time with her. 

NOTICE : Please, please please, cherish every single person around you cause you may not know when they will be taken away. After seeing so many airplanes gone and missing, I grief for the ones who lost their families and also the ones on the plane. Life is unfair. With wars going on at some part of the world, innocent people are getting hurt all the time. I even saw a little boy who was almost 7 years old (?) was bombed to dead. Like what?! 

Anyways, I bought some clothes and got some more accessories today. Been walking around the mall for hours and I didn't know I was tired till I sat down in the car and was like "oh man, my legs burn" Also, I am going on a holiday tomorrow ! yay ! but I wont be posting on Sunday and Monday. boooo.  I will be back on Tuesday tho !

Blackberry Tart recipe || Healthy Eats

Blackberries are such a nutritious food. This recipe is a delicious way to incorporate them into a healthy dessert, so you can have them often. The natural sweetness of this unusual crust allows you to enjoy a tasty dessert without added sugar.

Prep and Cook Time: around 30 minutes; chilling time: 3 hours


  • Crust
  • 2-1/2 cups walnuts
  • 1-1/2 cups dates

  • Filling
  • 5 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 3 TBS honey
  • 1-1/2 TBS arrowroot
  • 2 TBS water, or juice from frozen berries
  1. Combine walnuts and pitted dates in a food processor. Process until well mixed and ground, but not smooth (about 40 seconds). It should have a coarse texture when done. Press into a 9-inch tart pan. Set in refrigerator while making the filling.
  2. If you are using frozen blackberries make sure they are completely thawed. If not, they will dilute the filling as they thaw and make it runny.
  3. Place 2 cups of the berries along with the arrowroot in a blender. Add water or blackberry juice. Blend into a puree.
  4. Place puree in a small saucepan along with honey and cook over medium heat stirring constantly for about 3-4 minutes. It should lose its cloudiness and thicken. When it thickens and the cloudiness is gone remove it from heat. Mix with rest of the blackberries and fill tart shell. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Make sure it is covered so it doesn't pick up moisture from the refrigerator.

Never Giving Up !

Hello beautiful people !

So this isn't a healthy food or book post. Its just me sharing my thoughts and what I have gone through. Recently I have been out and about searching and hunting for college. I really want to be a writer. My ideal job is be New York Times journalist yay but yeah Walt Disney said to always dream big. I have been searching and searching for college that could get me a good foundation. and it was really difficult. I am actually a science nerd and stepping away from it (far far away) into English and writing is really a big step. 

I don't know if I can do it or if I will fail but a little bird said to be that you have to get the courage to try cause if you don't, you will never know. Even if I fail, there is always tomorrow. So yes, I am going into writing, either it's a journalist or creative writer I will write because I really enjoy it and I want to do it for the rest of my life. Plus, doing science would mean I am stuck at one place most of the time and I am a person who loves to travel!

Here is what I want to say : GO FOR IT ! Do what you love. You will never know what's going to happen. For better or worst, at least you know and you won't have regrets. 

Hugs and kisses

John Green's || Book Reviews

So I have a collection of John Green's books as you can see. I had already did a review on TFiOS  here. 
I would definitely say John Green has a very different  way of writing and the way he carries you in his books though out his own nerd, exciting and weird world.

I am now going to do reviews for the rest so yay ! STAY TUNE ! keep scrolling down. xx

Looking For Alaska 

I read this book quite a while ago but what I remember is its about a girl in school trying to make the best of it and pulling out jokes, pranks, falling in love, and it was really nice. You get to go on a journey of wild teenagers who probably gets in trouble everyday but not get called in for detention. So it was cool to see that point of view cause I know I wouldn't have experience any of what Alaska had. Coward me.;(

Rate :3.5/5

Will Grayson, Will Grayson

I have to say this book confuses me so much at first but when you get it, you get it. Its fun, its exciting and as you can tell, its weird. Its about this two boys, finding each other in a store and have the exact same name. They hang out and I am not going to spoil you so read for more details ! :D (<<< my evil smile)

Rate 3/5

Let It Snow 

Aside from TFiOS, this could be my favorite of them all. Its fun, its exciting, its romantic too !

It was really a good read.  I didn't let go of the book till i realize I have finished it in just a day ! It was crazy how drown I was to it.

Eleanor and Park & Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell || Book Review

Hello beautiful people !

So I read these two books about a month ago (?) and I would say I like the concept of the book. The way the author carry us through her story and it was really well written so bravo Rainbow Rowell !!

I would have to say I liked Eleanor and park much more then Fangirl. For those of you who havent read these books, here's a short review.

Eleanor and Park 

This book makes me feel so much confident and its much more realistic to me somehow. Whenever we read something, its always about a very cute guy with blue eyes with a sexy girl but this is different. Its about an Asian guy falling madly in love with an quiet, awkward, chubby girl with massive red hair. Eleanor wasn't the prettiest or the fairest of them all but she was enough for Park and that really touched my heart. It actually taught me the whole society that not everyone is picture perfect and that in reality, not everyone has blue eyes or a size 0 but still can find a happy ever after. I think everyone should read it and its totally worth it.

RATE : 4/5


This book consist of both humor and fandom. Its like a fangirl writing a book and we are reading about her life. This girl have a twin and was off to college and she found wild friends, book buddies and also of course love. Cody in this book is probably an ideal boyfriend who can be both your best friend and boyfriend at the same time. Its sweet and moving to read.

RATE : 3.8/5

Please tweet me if you like to see more book reviews or healthy recipes at @everylynhoran oh and yes IM A DIRECTIONER.

The Faults in Our Stars || Book Series

 TFiOS  by John Green. Not gonna lie, I reread this book three times ! It was touching. It is mostly about Hazel finding the author to discuss a book but on the journey, love happen. You will cry and your feels will jump everywhere. Maybe at some point you will even feel like getting on a plane and pay John Green a visit to discuss this book ! Ha ! But overall it was a good read. I enjoyed it.

Rate : 4.3 /5

It is slightly less then Divergent mostly because I am a sci-fic / action fiction girl not because it wasn't good. :D

I'm sorry this is a short review. I went out with my family today and my legs were burning from walking for literally 5 hours. Girls can shop but the pain comes afterwards. So that is all for today. Gonna get a nice bath and jump into bed early.

Happy Reading !

Divergent Series || Book Review

A lot people have watched the movie and it might be the hottest thing now? aside from  Tifios of course. So This series consist of three books ! 

Book One : Divergent

In this book, as you may have seen in the movie, it is when Tris choose her fraction. She had this dilemma to choose between her family and her heart. In the end she went for what she truly wish for and discovers that she is a Divergent. Then she met Four and they didn't get along in the beginning. Over time, Four and Tris got really close and saved the Abnegation together. Sadly, someone died in the end,and you guessed it Tris's mother. She was actually a Dauntless. So then they all ran off from the fractions. But it doesn't end here guys, war is coming, and it is hitting fast and fierce. 

Book Two : Insurgent

This book is about Tris and Four finding a way to save the whole fraction against the Erudite who wants to get rid of the Divergents. In times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so. This book is like the preparing for war in between thing. 

Book Three : Allegiant

This book tho. Let me just say, in the end you will cry, you will get angry and you will cry again. And then you will find yourself with your cup of coffee, sobbing for the next two days. It blows your mind in the end and you will wish you were there to stop it from happening. 
Conclusion : your feels will be all over the place so get ready guys. I am not gonna do a review on this because I don't think I can find a correct way to say it without spoilers. So enjoy suffering in heartache.

Rate : 4.5/5 

It is definitely a worthy book. If you haven't get your fingers on it, well get to it ! When you are reading it, you want to slow down so you wont finish the book so fast but when you put the book down, its like a magnet pulling you back. I love this book and hope you love them too. 

Feel free to leave a comment on what books you guys want me to do a review on. :D 

Happy Reading !
