rate: ★★★☆☆ (3.5)
thoughts: As a thriller fiction lover, I could say that this story is very good. However, the ending is pretty disappointing for me. Usually, you will get all the answers at the end, but in this story, the ending leaves me some question. For example, when Carlos Harnandez died, the author didn't tell the reader why did he was killed nor who killed him. So, as a reader, I just assumed that Lisa and Matt killed them.
Are You Afraid of The Dark
Sidney SheldonIn four cities across the world, four people die violently and mysteriously. The dead share a single crucial link: each was connected to an all-powerful environmental think tank. Two of the victims' widows-accomplished artist Diane Stevens and international supermodel Kelly Harris-may hold the key to their husbands' demise. Terrified for their lives, suspicious of each other, and armed only with their own wits and guile, they must join forces in a nightmare cycle of hunt-and-kill. At stake is the shattering truth about the tragedies that robbed them of the men they loved...and about an awesome conspiracy whose ultimate target is as big as the earth and as close as the air we breathe

thoughts: Another great story from Sidney Sheldon and this one is one of my favorites. This story gives me a great suspense and it's a nerve - wrecking story. I couldn't help but to read this story until I finished it as this story made me wonder what happened next. It also has a great twist! I love twisted story. You know something you don't expect to happen. And the most awesome part, that of Tanner’s superhuman discovery of techniques involving the control of weather!
This is one of the book that worth to be kept on your shelf!

genre: Thriller, Fiction
author: Mary Higgins Clark
rate: ★★★★☆ (4.0)
thoughts: Even the first chapter is very interesting - a young woman buried alive in a satin-lined coffin. The characters was good and the plot was well researched. It's hard to put down when you start reading this book.
When Maggie's stepmother was killed, I thought I already knew who was the murder. But when I read the next chapter, I thought it was not him. This book will keep you guessing who the real killer was. And I finally found out the killer when it was about the three last chapter.
This story has a great twist and turn too. However, I give it four stars because the relationship between Maggie and Earl was a bit weird for me? Just a bit confusing.

genre: Chick Lit, Fiction
author: Cecilia Ahern
rate: ★★★☆☆ (3.0)
thoughts: This book is kinda of modern fairytale one. As I never read any Cecilia Ahern's book, and many say that she's a great author, so I have a high expectation on this book. However, I think this book is pretty disappointing. The early chapters were slowly build, which cause me bored and I almost gave up on finishing this. But, thanks to my sister who kept saying the book was good and I was like "Okay. I'll finish it." This story is not so 'magical' as it seems. I don't know but I'll never read this book again.
However there is something that I could learn from this book. ‘Never take anything for granted‘, 'The past always affects the future‘
