Happy Weekend, guys! It is now almost February and a lot of new books have already been released. I bet you have added more than 30 books on your TBR few days before January 2018. As for me, one of my goals for this year is to read the books that I have on my shelves for a long time already. Also, I am currently in a book-buying ban and I am proud to say that I am doing really great since I have not bought any new books so far. Let’s see until when I can handle it good. Haha.
So I am here to share with you some of the new releases that I cannot wait to get my hands on. Goodluck to book-buying ban. There are a lot of them so I’ve divided my posts into 2 parts.
Hey guys! Is it too late to talk about the best books I read in 2017? I don’t think so. I wasn’t able to reach my reading goal (which was 60), BUT I read a couple of great books so it was totally okay with me. PLUS, I was on an incredible vacation late last year.
Out of 57 books I read, I only picked 10 favorites to keep this list short. So without further ado, here are the books that I absolutely enjoyed and loved! (in no particular order)

Hey guys! Another unboxing? Why not! I’m pretty sure by now that you guys know already what Page Habit is and how awesome their boxes are. So a week ago, I received my YA Fiction Quarterly Box and it’s pretty awesome!
Hi guys! Few days ago, I received this very special box from Illumicrate. I honestly wasn’t expecting for this at all so thank you so much, Daphne, for this! You are the best!
I’m so thrilled to be a part of this blog tour for Francesca Hornak’s debut novel, Seven Days Of Us, that was published three days ago. I’m currently reading it and hoping to finish over the weekends so watch out for my review.
Hey guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day. I know it’s Monday (again) but it’s another new day so we still have to be thankful for it. I’m here to share with you the books I’ve received from the past few days. So far, I received 5 books from these amazing publishers and authors. Please check out the publication dates because two of these books are not yet published. Let’s start.
Huzzah! I received my Page Habit September box few days ago and I can’t wait to show it to you, guys! Also, I’m now one of their brand ambassadors! Yey!
Hey guys! It’s time of the month again. For the month of September, I was able to read 4 books. I’ve just finished the 4th book two days but I think it’s still counted as September read. I’ve been in a slight reading slump last month which was not good… at all. I also wasn’t able to update my blog last month as much as I wanted to. Im going to try again this month and hopefully everything will work according to the plan. So, let’s start with my wrap-up.
“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” – Stephen King / Salem’s Lot

Hi guys! Christmas is here! Haha. In the Philippines, Christmas starts at the beginning of “ber” months. We Filipinos take this holiday very seriously even it means heavy traffic, crowded streets/malls and long list of gifts. The last time I spent Christmas with my family was in 2013. It’s been a while now and I’m really missing all the festivities, food and of course, my loved ones. But let’s not talk about that now because I’m here for my August Wrap Up.
