Okay sana eh, kaso napaka-immature ng writing style. Ang cliche din ng story line. Saka puro emoticons? Duh, para lang nagsulat sa diary. Ang daming nahook dito, pero ang babaw talaga.

But then again, for some reasons, we don't have internet connection, and I am bored as hell.
I decided to read the doc copy we had in our desktop. I find it really corny, I just have no choice. Am I weird? Sorry for saying this but, I don't really like t She's Dating The Gangster is the first Filipino novel I've ever read way back or Sorry for saying this but, I don't really like the ending.
Killing yourself? Not my thing. I just don't get it. Well, I do. It is more complicated, there are more foundation for Athena and Kenjie's love. But the author is right, if she would keep it's original length, it will cost higher. Still now, I find Filipino novels, quite corny, cliche, whatever, but still, the hopeless romantic side of me, keeps wanting for more.
So yeah, somehow, I am thankful for reading this. Mar 16, Aira rated it liked it Shelves: I read this on Wattpad at the recommendation of my friend.
I never knew there was a Goodreads account for this book. Reading it on Wattpad, I was actually a little annoyed because of the format of writing. Too many emoticons and punctuation marks. But the story was actually okay, if not a bit exaggerated. And then there was news that the story was getting published so I went ahead and bought the published book to compare it to the original story.
From the beginning there was already a big differe I read this on Wattpad at the recommendation of my friend. From the beginning there was already a big difference I'm not gonna spoil this for you guys. And as the story progressed, I can't help but feel that everything went a little bit too fast. There were too many scenes edited out. And I did not feel much chemistry there unlike in the original manuscript. But they did a good job editing it, though. The book was English all throughout and Edited very well.
I would recommend you reading it on Wattpad, though, where you can feel the Athena-Kenji love. You just have to be a little bit patient with the style of writing there. Nov 13, Monique San Lorenzo rated it it was amazing Shelves: Would you re-read it if ever?
I cried buckets because of this. I rarely read stuff like this but this one is an exception. I would recommend it to hopeless romantics like me. It is very moving. Jul 04, K. Besfrend Moomai. Kanina andaming tao sa Cinema 7 sa SM Megamall. May premiere night ng movie adaptation ng K pop fiction na ito.
Darating daw si Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla. Tamang-tama, naisip ko, katatapos ko lang basahin kaninang umaga ng book na ito na nirecommend ng office friend ko na si Besfren Moomai.
Mabibigla ka basta kasi ba't biglang ganoon," ang sabi nya sa akin minsan kumakain kami ng dinner sa Lugang last month. Si Besfrend Moomai bihirang mag-recommend yan ng book.
Pangalawa pa lang ito. Una yong Ermita: A Filipino Novel 4 stars ni F. Sionil Jose. Yan ang besfren ko, umi-efsyonil. Tapos ito yong pangalawa. Normally, ang nire-recommend nyan e movies kasi mas may time manood kaysa magbasa. Kabaliktaran ko. Eh sabi nga nila opposites attract. Pero teka di kami ni besfren, nagkakasundo lang kami dahil pareho naming gustong lumafang lumamon , manood ng sine at stage plays pag may budget at pareho kaming nagbabasa ng inspirational quotes bago magsimula ng work sa umaga.
Actually, sya yong nagpapadala ng words of wisdom sa inbox ko tuwing umaga at binabasa ko naman. Tsaka kilala ng wifey ko si Besfren Mommai lalo na kung may tindang siomai. Pero si Besfren Moomai may hawig kay Kathryn Bernardo. Mukha kasing koreana si Besfren ko e. Pero syempre di ko ipapanalangin na matulad si Besfren ko sa kapalaran ni Athena sa ending ng story. O yong magiging boyfriend ni Besfren dapat di gangster although sabi ni Besfrend kahapong umaga, gusto raw nya yong natsa-challenge siya sa guy kasi parang lalaki raw sya pagdating sa relationship.
Ganyan din si Athena dito sa libro. Halatang gusto rin naman niya si Kenji kaso may GF na ito, si Abigail. Maganda yong kuwento. Nakakagulat nga yong ending. May talent itong si Bianca Bernardino at di nakakapagtakang nagustuhan ito ng Star Cinema. Hindi pati ito romance. Ito ay love story. Dahil tragic ito. Parang modified version ng Romeo and Juliet ni Shakespeare. Tapos hindi mahirap o pangit ang babae.
Maganda rin kaya noong tinawag ni Abigail na gold-digger sabi ko, ha? Yong mga ganoon, parang kailangan lang i-polish ng konti yong kuwento dahil may mga loose ends sa huli anong nangyari kay Abigail? Pero di ko na ookrayin ang nobela. Sus, eh may pelikula na nga e. Star Cinema pa, tapos sasabihin kong di maganda. Hello, e di naman gago ang mga taga-Star Cinema para buhusan ng pera ang kuwento kung di ito maganda. Tsaka, marami na ngang nagbasa nito at nagandahan, sasabihin ko pa bang basura?
Eh sino naman ako? May nasulat na ba akong nobela kahit kapiraso lang? Di ba? Thank you, Besfren Moomai sa pagre-recommend ng book na ito. Nire-respeto ko talaga ang taste mo sa books kahit dalawa pa lang ang nirecommend mo. Nire-respeto rin kita bilang kaibigan. Bilang tao. Karespe-respeto ka naman kasi.
Yown na. Congratulations, SGWannaB! Keep on writing. Apr 10, Glenda Marie Asinas rated it did not like it. Since it's highly recommended by some girlfriends, I found myself really disappointed after finishing the book. I was not even halfway and I'm already asking a friend to just narrate the rest of the story to me.
Although it's lengthy there are a lot of unnecessary scenes , I mustered all my might to finish it in the hopes that the good parts were to come. But it never did. The story is so mundane. It's like a mishmash of the typical Koreanovelas I've seen.
And the typos were so distracting. I'm Since it's highly recommended by some girlfriends, I found myself really disappointed after finishing the book. I'm still baffled why a lot of girls are giving accolades to this book while I'm booing it to death.
I'm no sucker for romance. BTW, it's written in Tagalog but the writer seems to be more fond of the Korean culture. Jul 13, Jana Joyce rated it it was amazing. Sep 02, Maria rated it did not like it Recommended to Maria by: Athena to Lucas Ikaw ba.. Sayang ka, Lucas. Stupid story. Stupid plot. WTF ending. Kenji is an ass. Lucas is chicken shit. Athena is an opportunista! Please, don't. Lheii Velasco.
Well, I was hesitant to read this. First of all, I had read the original one, the real story posted in Wattpad and refused to continue since I already got bored.
But then, I heard the news of She's Dating the Gangster by Bianca Bernardino is going to be published as a book and everyone, I mean everyone at my school even two of my friends is hyped up at th Well, I was hesitant to read this. But then, I heard the news of She's Dating the Gangster by Bianca Bernardino is going to be published as a book and everyone, I mean everyone at my school even two of my friends is hyped up at the news and couldn't wait for its publication.
So, a friend of mine, Lheii, asked me a favor by downloading her a copy once it reached National Book Store. I agreed in exchange that I get to read it. I was very curious with all the popularity and praises this book received and since it was pure English, I asked myself, "Why not? My friend is kind enough to agree and she didn't have any idea how happy I felt. I started reading the book today and finished it in one sitting. The book isn't thick with only pages and it is affordable for the cost of Php The cover's made quite good.
That must be Kenji, being all 'gangster' like smoking with the smoke coming from his cigarette serving as the background for the title. When I grabbed a copy, the first thing I noticed was not the cover, which was surprising since it was the first thing you'll notice in a book, it was the texture of the book and how it touched my own palm.
I don't know how to describe it, but it's definitely smooth and I don't have ay idea what they put in there to make it like that. But nevertheless, I really love it! I'm not yet 16, but I will be soon and honestly, I didn't find anything too offensive for a 15 and below readers to read.
Oh wait, there is. But I do think that 15 year old readers would be able to deal with it. I enjoyed the whole time I was reading the book.
The emotions were in a whirlwind of typhoon, too many and too mixed up. I said that as a compliment. Well, that's basically how I felt while reading- enjoyed. I also felt at some point, sympathy to Athena, anger at Kenji and a lot more. There were many deleted scenes from the original Wattpad story I had read last year since there was a scene where Lucas and Athena kissed during a school fair that was basically the part when I stopped reading and didn't find that scene in the book.
I'm glad that they removed a lot of unnecessary things from the original story to the book. Truth to be told, I found a lot of things irrelevant while I was reading the original story.
But, when I had read the book, I'm happy with the result. It instantly earned three stars. One star was deducted for the other characters were barely mentioned and I wanted to know more about Sara, Jigs and Kirby's lives more. But I think it is quite reasonable for the story revolves around Athena, Kenji and Abigail. Also Lucas. But I honestly think that the author should also add a little spotlight to the other characters since there are some people who love them.
Overall, I really enjoyed my time reading this and this is a good start for Filipino authors to be recognized!
This gives more opportunity for Filipino Wattpad writers to hope that they can get their stories published and be famous and pursue their writing career.
Four stars since I had a good time reading it and a lot of irrelevant scenes were removed for the book and I'm happy with the result. One star is deducted for I want to know more about the minor characters like what happened to them during the Batangas trip of Athena and Kenji or their wedding.
I suggest that the author should've two people narrating so that the readers will know what happened to the supporting characters while the main protagonists are making good memories. Nevertheless, I'm still satisfied and will be looking forward for more Wattpad-stories-into-books! Jul 18, Melissa rated it it was ok. I have no sympathy for characters that tolerate rough treatment or even a bit of misdemeanor from guys.
A more understandable and expected reaction from the character would be to keep distance and enjoy the view, not allow herself to suffer the experience when she knows it's coming. I think guys who are habitually mean are ill-bred and lack the respect entitled to others. Having said that, I have no sympathy for Athena who allows herself to be bullied by her pretend boyfriend Kenji, the school " I have no sympathy for characters that tolerate rough treatment or even a bit of misdemeanor from guys.
Having said that, I have no sympathy for Athena who allows herself to be bullied by her pretend boyfriend Kenji, the school "gangster". It shows that she has low self-esteem. Not my type of heroine. Yeah the gangster is hot, but no one is ever hot enough to earn the right to be mean. The story is about young love, and delves into the gangster's rebellious reaction after the break-up with his girlfriend who happen to have the same name as our main character. There's a double love triangle just among the two Athenas, Kenji, and Lucas, the boyfriend of Athena the 1st.
Lucas also shows sign of being attracted to Athena the 2nd. Overall, the story doesn't seem to have something virtuous to offer. I will give 2 stars for writing effort and for the last two chapters that managed to give me something to like about. Congratulations to the writer who is now an author. Keep on writing, and I hope your next work will be more commendable May 08, Denise rated it it was ok.
When I was impulsively shopping to kill time one random saturday evening, I stumbled upon a shelf that featured this book, violet and teal cover featuring a guy that awfully looks like Jung Yonghwa stark against the pastel Summit books. Now, as a Kpop fan myself, I read fanfiction, but mostly the ones found in Livejournal or Tumblr.
However, I have heard of a certain work of fiction with the same title from m When I was impulsively shopping to kill time one random saturday evening, I stumbled upon a shelf that featured this book, violet and teal cover featuring a guy that awfully looks like Jung Yonghwa stark against the pastel Summit books. However, I have heard of a certain work of fiction with the same title from my friends who have read the original one, so this might be good.
To be sure, I flipped to the ad blurb and read it as well. It sounded nice, kinda fanfic-y in a sense, so I bought it along with another novel with high hopes that I will be reading a nice, Taglish novel. Fast forward to earlier today, when parts of Luzon experienced a power shortage. With my gadgets still alive but barely breathing hehe beside me, I decided to give this book a shot. Sadly, however, my hopes crashed, both for the power to come back early and for this book.
There was a lack of proper transition throughout the novel, and the events moved a little too fast for my liking. One moment they hate each other, the next moment they're in love with each other, the next moment they hate each other again, then they love each other again, then Athena dies.
Well, that was fast. Furthermore, it was like reading a super summarized typical telenovela script. Love-hate relationship, secret love, ex girlfriend who wants to get back together and abandon super perfect current boyfriend!!! That was a confusing relay of what happened in SDtG. Not really my cup of tea. Like what I mentioned earlier, I expected it will be great since I heard a lot of good feedback about the original fanfiction, but perhaps the editing and the summarizing didn't do the original work much justice.
Perhaps one day I'll find the time to read the original work of Ms. Bernardino and enjoy the unabridged version, but for now my disappointment lingers. Nov 11, Rhisa Rey rated it liked it. Marami akong napansin habang binabasa 3 stars I'm being fair here. Mar 09, Patrice Lavandero rated it it was amazing Shelves: A filipina writer. At first, I doubt that the story will go well, just like other people from other countries Honestly speaking..
But it went better than expected. The scene takes you to a normal high school girl who despised not really a guy. Then slowly, the guy dared? At first, I really thought it would be cliche and all but it wasn't. As I continue reading this book, my feelings and thoughts went along with it. At the first 50 pages, I read slowly and time felt terribly slow since it was a bit boring for me to read. Until I reached a point where I felt like every chapter was short even though it contains eight or more pages.
This book sent the blues out of my eyes, especially when the book finished, or rather, before it finished. The epilogue I just can't forget the epilogue.
True Love Until death do us part. Though there were some flaws but the plot? Very interesting. It's wrong to have typos but what I mean is If you want to really publish the book, you should try to clean it, you know what I mean? I just feel like.. I suggest the author to make an english version of this book. Since it could attract more people from outside the country who couldn't understand our language.
It would be a hit. I tell you: May 01, Alexa rated it really liked it Shelves: I read this about 4 or 5 years ago, but as most memorable stories go, I could still remember the whole plot. A friend emailed it to me, and I found out it was one of those Internet novels that are circulating around. It actually originated in a CandyMag forum, but I only found that out now. As in, about five minutes before I typed this. I didn't even know it was up in Goodreads!
At first, this seemed like a novelization of a traditional Korean drama yes, I watch a lot of those - it's a guilty p I read this about 4 or 5 years ago, but as most memorable stories go, I could still remember the whole plot. At first, this seemed like a novelization of a traditional Korean drama yes, I watch a lot of those - it's a guilty pleasure and one of the reasons why I don't get any work done: Later on, though, conflicts ensue and everything spirals to a really beautiful but sad ending.
I was at first cautious of reading this because it was in Taglish, but when I started reading I took great pains to convert the whole document into a format that an iPod Nano could read so I could read it at night when I'm supposed to be asleep it's practically my first ebook - plus, no need for flashlights!
What I first thought to be a bad thing turned out to be an asset; somehow, reading a novel in pretty much the way you normally speak makes everything so much easier. Though some of the plot points may now be considered cliche, I still have fond memories of reading this from a perspective of a blissfully ignorant girl fresh out of grade school. I was so thrilled when I recognized the phrases while watching Kdramas and reading their scripts I can't understand them, but when I do, it's mostly because of this story.
Apr 13, Mara rated it liked it. I read the original manuscript from Wattpad first before downloading the book. The story is really amazing! But to be honest, the manuscript is better than the book. Though the original has a lot of unnecessary conversations or details, it adds to the emotional impact of the story.
Feel na feel mo yung nararamdaman ng characters. So obvious naman kung gano kadami yung na I read the original manuscript from Wattpad first before downloading the book.
So obvious naman kung gano kadami yung nasummarize and naalis. The unnecessary details were deleted so it looks clean.
I mean hindi amateur-ish tignan. But then, nabawasan yung emotional impact nung story. Like when nagbreak si Athena and Kenji, sobrang sad and devastated dapat yung maffeel nung reader. Pero dun sa book, since sinummarize lang nila, parang dedma lang kasi walang details. As in sabi lang, nagbreak sila then after a few months nakipag-usap ulit si Kenji kay Athena.
Wala yung part na sobrang heartbroken si Athena na pati yung reader mahheartbroken and maiiyak. Pati yung kilig scene the 5 minute hug ni Kenji kay Athena , wala.
Don't get me wrong. I don't hate the book. I just love the original manuscript way better than the edited book. The story is still the same.
Very good book. Feb 18, Shiela rated it did not like it. I just don't like the story plot.. I read this book only because of the news that it'll be adapted into a movie featuring Kathniel..
Sorry for the negative reviews, but it is what it is. I just wished that this book was proofed read before they published it.. So many flaws..
I hate the fact that it ha i gave this book 1 star.. I hate the fact that it has these annoying "pati" words, which i think not necessary at all and so irritating.. Plus the combination of Korean chuchu, my God!! I don't think the influence of Kpop gave this story any justice.. Mar 27, Sarah rated it liked it. Title palang pang Korean movie na.. At hindi nga ako nagkamali.
Plot palang mala-Korean movie na talaga. Though I greatly compared them, the story was awesome. Just plain awesome. The story became very ordinary for me coz this was how Korean movies are made. In short, paulit ulit nalang. I can even relate scenes Title palang pang Korean movie na..
Pero cool naman talaga pag nagkikipagdate ka sa gangster. Just a thought lang. Yan lang muna dapat. Ayoko man-spoil eh. There was this scene where Kenji kissed Athena in a club para lang mapagselos si Abi. She even included Korean words and a little of Hangul with translation to add thrill. Pero ang cool nga kasi natututo rin tayo ng Korean words. I think the book should be published. One thing I noticed din is yung age nila. Sa Pinas makakaarte ba kayo ng ganun?! Kaya ayun..
Love is sacrifice. Ayan, one sentence to sum up the story. Basahin nyo nalang din guys. Lalo na kung college stud ka na. Just message me or anything. Kasi nga diba wala syang published book kaya yun.

Pero, kahit ganun, the story itself, it's concept, drives me to continue reading it.
So, at the beginning, it was, hmmm Yeah, it was like the typical F4 story. Guy bullies girl, girl let him. Yeah I know, pathetic. But then, it becomes sweet.
I love their petnames. He keeps on dragging her anywhere he wants when in fact, he has no right to do so.
And this idiot girl, who has no freewill of her own, just let him. That's the best thing about Filipino stories. It easily penetrates my heart.

Walang sense most of the time, parang diary lang ng isang dalagitang walang utak - sorry medyo harsh.
Poot na poot ako. Sayang sa effort. Ilang ugat din ang pumutok sa utak ko. Bedridden ako ng buong araw, napa-mens ako ng di oras - kaya pala ang sakit ng likod, ulo, at puson ko.
Akala ko dahil lang yon sa galit na kinimkim ko habang nagbabasa kahit prologue pa lang. Oo, takang taka ako na ganyan ba talaga katanga ang babaeng ito?
Haler, nananampal ng babae yang "gangster" mo. Mas bagay kayo ni Lucas - kasi ikaw luka-luka ka! Sobrang saya ko nung nasa last page nako! Sana lang yung Epilogue ginawa na lang Prologue.

At first I can say that is some kind of Mala f4 ang dating pero at the epilouge mala endless love ang ending.. Now a days Filipino Authors takes the spotlight.. We don't need to write vampire stories to topnotch bookstores and get readers..

This can be a challenge for expats who already face a language barrier, as English is not common outside the big cities. Gender roles might also be an obstacle, as Russian women are expected to be highly loyal and domestic, keeping a tidy home and focusing on family life rather than their own careers.
In this respect, Russia is less advanced than its neighboring countries when it comes to attitudes towards the sexes. Advertisement Switzerland Just like a good cheese fondue, the Swiss can take a while to warm up. There is no rule book for dating in Switzerland , such as when to call or get more serious, so you might find yourself playing the long game. It can take a while for a Swiss man to pluck up the courage, but when he finally does set the date, he is likely to turn up for it fifteen minutes early, because being proper and courteous ranks above everything else.
This means that when a Swiss man settles down, it is usually serious. Generally speaking, Swiss women are fairly laid-back too, and tend to be comfortable starting small and seeing where things go. And because women are becoming more career driven, sharing costs on a date is common and seen as a sign of respect and equality, rather than a break in chivalry. Spain Spaniards are loud, lazy, and love a long siesta, right? Well, not entirely.
There are countless stereotypes for this famously flamboyant country, but not all of them ring true. For example, despite Spaniards having an image as work-shy shirkers, they actually work some of the longest hours in Europe — even more than the Germans. That said, they do seem to run on a completely different timetable to practically every other country on earth; they often take two to three hours for lunch and tuck into dinner well after This applies to dating too , as they have been accused of being late on more than one occasion — or flaking out altogether.
While women tend to fly the nest at an earlier age, men are known to live at home far longer, enjoying all the home comforts on offer. Be prepared to spend a lot of time with their family, too; this is a central part of Spanish life for many.
Advertisement Portugal Whatever you do, do not call them Spanish! While Brazilian culture has a strong influence here, the Portuguese are far more reserved than their Lusophone counterparts. Despite boasting a sunny, laid-back Mediterranean culture, the Portuguese pride themselves on their time-keeping; this applies to dating, too. Lateness is frowned upon and will not get you off to a good start.
When it comes to settling the bill, men will likely insist on paying, which is largely due to their traditional views on gender roles. These attitudes extend to family, which is an integral part of life for both men and women.
In fact, more than , people commute into Luxembourg for work from Belgium, Germany, and France. This transient population can make dating in Luxembourg — or even scheduling a date — a bit of a mission. Dating culture, like business culture, follows a patient process here.
Greetings are fairly reserved, punctuality is highly valued, and chivalry is important, as are table manners — so no slurping at dinnertime. Walking around with your hands in your pockets is also highly frowned upon. Luxembourgers are known to be quite reserved and private; they may not be as forthcoming with their emotions as people from other countries. Developing relationships can therefore be a slow process. Advertisement South Africa Brush up on your sporting knowledge and get ready for the braai Dating in South Africa can be a colorful experience, given the richness and diversity of the country and all of its cultural and religious customs.
South Africa has a patriarchal culture , which means that views on gender roles might not be as progressive as you might be accustomed to in your home country. On the contrary, men can be quite sweet and traditional. While dates are usually fairly simple and relaxed, women still like their men to be brave and chivalrous.
They prefer to be asked out rather than receiving an offer to just hang out. They are known for their elegance so picking a nice restaurant, scrubbing up for the big date, and holding the door open is sure to make a good impression. Women in South Africa are also fiercely loyal, be it to their partners, their friends, and their rugby team. Be sure to take an interest in all of the above. Because sport is such a major part of South African culture, your ideal man is likely to be fit, healthy, and active, with a love of the outdoors.
One activity you are bound to come across is braai — a meat-heavy barbecue — which is widely enjoyed by all.
