Can You Keep A Secret ????

Emma Corrigan is a young woman in London, England. She is in a stable, but dull, relationship with the “perfect” man, and is currently attempting to climb the corporate ladder at Panther Cola, a multi-national cola company headquartered in London. Satisfied with life, she is thrown off-kilter when she mistakenly blurts out all of her inner secrets to a complete stranger on a plane when it hits turbulence and she believes she is going to die.

Emma believes that she is in the clear when she leaves the plane, as she is confident that she will never see that stranger again. However, when he shows up at work, and turns out to be the company’s founder, she is forced to come face-to-face with the man, her secrets, and the desire for her life to change.

Anne Frank-The Diary of a young GIRL

Think of beauty still left around you and be happy…-Anne Frank

Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annex” of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.

I read this when i was in class 8.We were supposed to read this in our summer vacations.3 years later today i have again ordered this book.I am truly very small in rating this book as its not something for pleasure.It`s the bitter truth of past and how people suffered so much.This was actually not supposed to be a diary but Anne Frank`s father,a survivor of the war published this.Its an amazing diary of a little girl who died at a young age of 15.How jews were treated so badly.

This book is not just meant for reading but understanding as well.Jews are equal as all of us.Hence we should give them equal respect and love.Discrimination on these basis should be eradicated from the roots so that the world doesn`t has to face such kind of a horrendous past.See below the real pictures of Anne Frank`s memory….

So do read this book,its excellent.I`ll rate it a 10/10 because i simply loved it.Do tell me your views on this.Happy reading to all the bookaholics……. 🙂

House of Night

House of Night is a series of vampire themed fantasy novels by American author P.C Cast and her daughter Kristin Cast. It follows the adventures of Zoey Redbird, a sixteen-year-old girl who has just become a “fledgling vampyre” and is required to attend the House of Night boarding school in Tulsa,Oklahoma.

After a Vampire Tracker Marks her with a crescent moon on her forehead, 16-year-old Zoey Redbird enters the House of Night and learns that she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess Nyx and has affinities for all five elements: Air, Fire Water, Earth and Spirit. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school’s most elite club, is mis-using her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny – with a little help from her new vampyre friends (or Nerd Herd, as Aphrodite calls them).

Warning: It’s addictive.

So the author spells the word vampire as “vampyre” but we know both r same except for the replacement of “i” with a “y”. :-)Let me warn you beforehand that you might not like the first 2 novels so much but it is an excellent one.You`ll definitely love it.Actually we have a little slow beginning but it paces up with events following it further.There are currently 9 parts and the tenth part would be released soon.I`ll rate it a 10/10.Its an awesome book with a concept of fledgling and u`ll enjoy it as it`s every fold is having a deadly secret within.Her romantic life with many twists and turns,mysteries,family problems,friends and much more will really make u engrossed in it.

This series follows with Zoey finding the truth,fighting the evil,love life,family,friends,school life etc.All elelments in a single series will take for a ride to otherwordly experiences.

House Rules:-

Rule #1:

If you’ve been Marked by a Tracker, night has chosen thee. You will go through the Change and turn into a vampyre. However, if your body rejects the Change, you die.

Rule #2:

If you are Marked, you must leave your home and move into the House of Night school, where you will take your place as a fledgling and live for four years.

Rule #3:

At the House of Night School, classes begin at 8pm and end at 3am. The gym is open until dawn.

Rule #4:

You can never be far from an adult Vampyre for long. And it’s not like you’ll turn into a pumpkin. It’s a much bigger deal than that.

Rule #5:

Formal rituals are held at Nyx’s Temple twice a week. At the ceremony’s commencement, turn to the east, south, west and north to summon (in order) air, fire, water and earth.

Rule #6:

If one of the cats at the school chooses you, you will belong to him or her. Not the other way around.

Rule #7:

Every High Priestess is given an affinity, or special powers, by the Goddess.

Rule #8:

If you ever leave school grounds, you cannot wear any part of your uniform (which is primarily basic black) and must conceal all tattoo markings.

Rule #9:

Here at the House of Night school, there are no lockers. You will have cabinets in your homeroom. If someone steals something, the vamps will know it. As will Nyx.
