42. HOW TO KILL A ROCKSTAR by Tiffanie Debartolo

Freaking goddamn 5 stars, if i can’t have more!


What’s with these rockstar images that i cannot help to resist in reads like this???

RIDGE of Maybe Someday (Click here for the review), ADAM Of Where She Went (Click here for the review), and now you, PAUL HUDSON of How to Kill a Rockstar.  Given with your good looks, and fine built and charming adorable eyes, dash up some that rough on the edges, that “i dont give a damn” act that you always try to show off, that cool and mysterious exterior that you keep on letting on.  But in real, you are as emotional as the girl next door.  The love for music, just like the air you breathe, deeply immersed on that world as sensitive as you can be.  The longing for that somebody, deep and rich that i wish i am that somebody.  Oh, Paul, Paul, peel that mask off, and let me see the real you.

‘This is the story of Eliza Caelum, a young music journalist, and Paul Hudson, a talented songwriter and lead singer of the band Bananafish. Eliza’s reverence for rock is equaled only by Paul’s, and the two fall wildly in love.

When Bananafish is signed by a big corporate label, and Paul is on his way to becoming a major rock star, Eliza must make a heartbreaking decision that leads to Paul’s sudden disappearance and a surprise knock-your-socks-off ending.—goodreads”

Seriously, this book is awesome, complete and worth reading. All the twists and turns, all those lines, and most of the ‘i never saw that coming’ parts kept me hooked.  All those feels that the characters had given me, that i can barely contain.  Those hopeless romantic, sappy, heart tugging simple moments that made my heart went ballistic, each and every other time.  I am telling you, this excited me, surprised me, confused me, made me hope, crushed me, shattered me, made me hope again, went in-denial, accepted willingly but very grateful in the end.  Pretty sums it all up, in that particular order! But it was all worthy of my time.  I guess, what is meant to happen, will happen,anyway.

Truly, it was a knock-your-socks-off-ending! That moment when you abandon all hope and leave it to fate, whatever comes after those tragedies in life.  Suddenly, there was light, a very bright light! Ahhhhh, life is really full of surprises!  Oh, Tiffanie, thanks for this story.


Please, let me assure you that this one will truly go up the top of your most favorite books.  If that’s not enough, let me relay to you on how they described Paul Hudson.  Maybe, this will convince you to know him more.

“He possesses the heat of a madman, the soul of a hopeful romantic and the voice of a god!”

And Eliza Caelum, she’s the epitomy of the saying,

“whatever you desire, if you put your heart and soul in it, you can conquer your fear and follow all your dreams.”
