This would be a quick update again. I have been neglecting my blog for the past few weeks because of work schedule and with my new love life is just eating all my time, LOL! All I can say is even with new work routine and hanging out with my new boyfriend albeit my parents are against about it, but still, I am euphoric.

Here it goes:

Reading I didn’t read for or even touch my books or Kindle for quite some time now because of work. I miss reading, and I cannot wait to catch up soon. I am stuck with A Feast For Crows and Arise

Family-Friends Escapade in Dorset today. Well, the weather was bad as it rained most of the time so we ended up staying in the car. We are supposed to go fishing as well, but it didn’t work out because of the strong waves. It was a fail attempt to enjoy the beach. The children liked it when the sun came out 1 hr before we leave. I didn’t swim.. didn’t bother. Just took some pictures, eat and chat with friends.

Reading I’m stuck with Arise by Tara Hudson and A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin.

[Book Review] Finders Keepers

19875825-_sy540_TITLE: Finders Keepers (Bill Hodges Trilogy #2)
AUTHOR: Stephen King
PUBLISHED: 2 June 2015 by Scribner
GENRE: Mystery & Thrillers, Fiction
DESCRIPTION:
1978: Morris Bellamy is a reader so obsessed by America’s iconic author John Rothstein that he is prepared to kill for a trove of nothebooks containing at least one more unpublished novel.

2009: pete Saubers, a boy whose father was brutally injured by a stolen Mercedes, discovers a buried trunk containing cash and Rothstein’s notebooks.

2014: After thirty-five years in prison. Morris is up for parole. And he’s hell-bent on recovering his treasure.

Now it’s up to retired detective Bill Hodges – running an investigative company called ‘Finders Keepers’ – to rescue Pete from an ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris…

MY THOUGHTS:

4stars
The second book of the Hodges Series by one of my favourite authors and it is better than the first one. The characters are more believable especially Pete. I completely understand what he did, and the love for his family is to the highest level. Albeit he knows that it is wrong, but he will do it just to make his family whole again. I can relate, and I will do it too if I were in his position. He is one of the strongest characters in the book.

In the first part of the story is where the Mr. Mercedes incident happened, where Pete’s dad got hurt badly and where their family struggled financially and it nearly broke his parent’s relationship. Pete being a teenager helped his parents without their knowledge, and this is where the trouble started.

Morris is another strong character, too. I just could not believe how some people can be obsessed with something or someone that they will kill for it. Some people are worst than this character. I may find it silly to be obsessed with a book character, but it can happen in real life.

I feel like Hodges is not the main character in the series after reading this book. He got into the story after reading half of it, including his two accomplices in the first book. I do not feel like he is a strong character anymore, and I do not care about him, to be honest. I am starting to love Holly tho.

I enjoyed this story more than the first one. I feel like I will LOVE the third one more especially when it mix with a bit of horror about Brady. That cliffhanger about him is just scary, and I am excited about it!
