The Only Epikia

Haggard. Twisted. Awkward. Weird? Bubbly. Hungry. Sleepy. I am a 20 year old something Registered Nurse, but ‘something’ by heart. I don’t know that ‘something’ yet, I’m still soul-searching, you know? I'm a master of none, I march to the beat of a different drummer and have the ability to laugh at most any situation.

Love the One You're With - Emily Giffin After reading this book, it made me feel sort of empty...and that's a good thing, right? It did bug me, you know, with all the the one that got away drama...it's just, just like its, erm, gist, This is the story for anyone who has ever wondered: How can I truly love the one I'm with when I can't forget the one who got away?...I found myself wondering even if I don't have that yet.

I really liked the story, I admire Ellen's decisions and she's now part of my erm...favorite heroine list. HAHAHA. but, as for the secondary characters--Leo, Andy, Margot and Suzanne--I haven't connected with them...well, considering the story was written in a first person perspective, but, yeah, they're pretty much 'off' with me. But I have somewhat felt Ellen's confusion, indecisiveness and longing...but I am happy with her choices. The story is not really the mushy, passionate kind of romance, I guess it's more of being a realistic and mature kind of love and I'm contented...and as of the moment and as what I have mentioned, feeling somewhat empty after reading it...and made Katy Perry's The one that got away play inside my head since I started reading it yesterday. HAHAHA. It's a 4 stars for me. :)
