"Virginity.

Bliss Edwards is about to graduate from college and still has hers. Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, she decides the best way to deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible-- a one-night stand. But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. And as if if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier."
           



I've written my very first Book Review, last October; do check it out:
Losing It by Cora Carmack


Here goes my second entry for Cora Carmack's Love Letter:
(since I've linked up my previous review, here's another)

HAIKUS! I made haikus for a love letter!

I present my dear haikus for my entry as Love Letter for Cora Carmack’s signed book giveaway!
Happy Book Release day last 26th, Cora!

P.S. Why is it in the paperback cover our lovely hottie, Garrick was cut?
*I swear I have this huge crush on that guy - le cries -*

Love Letters to be heard.
From Cade, Kelsey, Garrick and Bliss' thoughts.


CADE:

PHANTOM
A ghost of a smile,
Warmth had spread in your cold eyes,
I had captured it.

UNRETURNED LOVE
The depth of your words,
Uttered in sweet and caress,
Yet lies from your heart.

OVER AND BEYOND SEAS
Love that knows no bounds,
Undivided by distance,
Heart that grows fonder.

*Over and beyond seas can also be interpreted for Faking It - click link for the summary and cover reveal - :)

KELSEY:
PARTY BOYS
Life’s a party, yeah?!
Everyday drinks and muscles,
Let’s succumb to them!

NO INSTA-LOVE
Drinks, boys, be merry!
Who believes in insta-love?
Not me, that’s for sure.

WONDER
Happy-go-lucky?
Yeah, but I do wonder, if…
I’ll have my own man.


GARRICK:
BLISS
Humor, awkwardness,
Your name behold happiness,
I found my own Bliss.

HEAVEN ON EARTH
Fingers in your hair,
Kisses I’m craving for more,
My heaven on earth.

HOME
This moment right now,
Philly, theater, and her,
My life and my home.

UNDONE
Never been this good,
Heart swells at the sight of her,
Smile, kiss… Yep, I’m done.


BLISS:
SHAKESPEARE IN A BAR
Oh my, Hot and what?
Reads Shakespeare and speaks in Brit,
Shit, he’s who I want.

AWKWARD
Could this get much worse?
Darn it, he’s my Professor!
The guy I left home.

WILD SENSATIONS
The flash of your smile,
Does flutters in my stomach,
And my knees go weak.

FIERCE COMPETITION
This burning desire,
Meow… Oh no you don’t, Hamlet!
I glomp at Garrick.

MINE
My love is returned,
Joy, grief, success, all with him,
This time, this is mine.


GARRICK-BLISS:
ALWAYS
That smile with those words,
Coming from those mouth and lips,
I love you… always.


Well, that's all folks, I hope you liked it (and my dear review: Losing It by Cora Carmack)!

I know, I know, before throwing those tomatoes. Hold your horses!

Haikus are normally about nature and very specific. I just have the fondness of using the 17 syllable (5-7-5) poem. It makes one thinks and counts how it will be possible. Haikus are either confounding or straight to the point, which is why I seem to have a dear attachment to it (aside from it originating from Japan – love this country’s nature and culture).

So busy at school *after posting this I'm off to study for my finals exam, wish me luck! Or grab some Upside-down Caramel Macchiato for a pat in a back - haha :D*
