Bookas: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

I thought I posted this way back, and then I saw it on my draft. Oh Well...

Got the book from
Found somebody asking for it last March
The book was available at Powerbooks last March, question is, is it still available?  The story was not I expected it to be.  I expected similarities with the anime with the same title.  I later found out that the anime movie was a continuation, better yet, a related story from what the book narrated.  Then I discovered that the book has a 1980's movie adaptation, I should have compared it to that instead of the anime.

The story was short but was nicely written (translated), the book has a second short story with it.  Grab a copy if you're a fan!

Couch Potato: KDrama

A year has passed and I haven't blog much about anything, here's the yearly dose of korea nobelas I'm recommending.

*** Romcom with a twist of ghostly visits

*** Even my son enjoyed the drama; but I guess he liked it because Song Jihyo was the lead actress.  I didn't quite get the medical chitchat but I liked the romcom angle.  And a cameo from Gary of Runningman was hilarious.

** Why so serious?

*** The approach was one of a kind; surprised that A Pink's Jung Eun-ji was great of an actress.

*** My past related much more here than the first drama 97, nostalgic and the story was of various character.

** Almost gave up mid way but was rather happy I chose to continue and see it until the end

Y O U   W H O   C A M E   F R O M   T H E   S T A R S
*** Jeon Ji Hyun that would be enough to justify the three asterisk rating
