Live Music. Laser Projections. Fun. Celebration. Awards And A Very Bright and Awesome Bucharest. One I wish to see more often, not only on special occasions like the Bucharest Days. Not complaining, but we could really use some atmosphere in a rather grey city.

Last weekend, Bucharest has been extremely colorful due to The Bucharest Days, which has taken place in several locations around the city  – Constitution Square, Old Town, Cișmigiu and Herastrau Parks, Băneasa Railway Station and George Enescu Square. What can I say ? It was SIMPLY AWESOME. Too bad I couldn’t go because that was my weekend to work, but at least I got the chance to see a small part of it while waiting for my ride home. Maybe next year I’ll attend the event for real. In the following minutes you’ll get a closer look at what the Bucharest Days really mean, so buckle up.

Bucharest Days 2015

Between 18 and 20 September, The City Hall honors those who change things in good : 36 of the personalities and the most important projects in music, theater, ecology, tourism, sport and journalism were nominated by BucureştiTu Gala – Awards Bucharest.

Charlie – A Cat’s Chance To A New Life

Part 1

Running for my life

My name is Charlie. My mommy has left me. The family that owned us, disposed of me. No idea why. I did nothing wrong. Guess they got bored, which I don’t find fair. But nothing about life is…

She always told me that we’ve nine lives. That all of us get a happy ending to our story. She’d never lie, that much I know.

About to find out if it is true.

For days and days, I’ve been wandering the streets. Never knowing where I’d end up, what will come of me. Hide under cars or God knows what other places. Fear I’ll get squashed under the wheels of one of them. No one ever stopped to pet me or feed me. They’d only walk right past, a disgusted air on their faces. With a deep sigh, I start walking again, ignoring the stares I get. I am a cat not a thief. Humans can be cruel sometimes. I’ve seen it happen to my friends.

Nothing surprises me anymore.

Out of nowhere, something big and furry – a dog – appeared, making me take a few steps back.

“This is my territory, you little fur ball. Ought get out of here fast or else  I’ll have you for dinner”, he said to me, a wicked sparkle in his big eyes. His red tongue hanging out of his mouth in an attempt to scare me. Read the rest of this entry

Book Review : Forsaken ( The Secret Life Of Amy Bensen #3 ) by Lisa Renee Jones

Forsaken (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen, #3)Forsaken by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is Chad’s POV and only Chad’s.

What can I say ? Lisa has done it again. She’s clearly the head master of twists and turns in the NA genre.

This book is seriously bound to keep you on edge from the beginning untill the end. As we all know by now, Amy has tried up until now to make some sense of her past. Watching her every move from the shadows, was her “presumed to be dead” brother Chad. Now Chad is back and set on revenge mode.

While he’s been held captive by Sheridan, he meets Gia, a completely fearless but so very broken inside – just like him – women. She helps him escape, and from that point on they stick together. Though, Chad has no idea of who she really is,he still promises to do anything to protect her. Read the rest of this entry
