I had a very hot and steamy weekend. How about you? Continue reading “#Smutathon Wrap Up + Book Reviews”
Happy Friday, everyone! So I’m here to finally share my book haul. Continue reading “Book Haul | January, February & March 2019”
Hey guys! It’s time for my March reading wrap up! I read a total of 10 books (7 physical books, 2 ebooks and an audiobook) and even one in German which makes me very happy. Continue reading “Wrap Up | March 2019”
Hey loves! It’s time for a monthly wrap-up post again. I read a total of five books, an e-book and listened to two audiobooks last month so it was really a great month for me. I think the last time that I read eight books in a month was in January 2017. Reading short stories / novels really helps a lot especially if you’re in a reading slump. Continue reading “Wrap Up | March 2018”
Hey guys! I’m finally back with my January and February Wrap-Up post! Better late than never, right? (That’s my favorite motto these days. Haha!) Anyway, I am so happy to be back here and hoping that you guys are still looking forward to read my new posts. I included my mini reviews of the books I read in this post and also my book haul. So it’s a little long but I hope you enjoy reading it. So without further ado, let’s begin. Continue reading “Wrap Up | January & February 2018”
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. Continue reading “August Wrap Up + Summer Book Haul”
These pretties came in the mail today, except my Gizmo, and I can’t help not to share them with you guys.
Murder on the Orient Express
by Agatha Christie
I’ve read And Then There Were None with Joyce few days ago and we both loved it. We’ve decided to start collecting Christie’s novels. This book was recommended to me by the majority of my bookish friends (one of them is Erika) as a second read from Christie.
Snow Like Ashes
by Sara Raasch
This is my book for this month’s “1HB a month”, a “thing” that Joyce and I started. We love hardbound books (Who doesn’t, right?) but they are quite expensive so we’ve decided to save some money (it’s our husband’s money, actually. Haha!) so we can buy one hardbound every month. I am reading a lot of good things about this book and I’m excited to read this.
I’m excited for Funeral for a Friend. They will be performing later at 9pm in MusikZentrum (Hannover) and it will be my first time watching them live. Yay! Last time I’ve been in a concert was in 2013 when Paramore performed live in Docks, Hamburg and it was epic.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline | Goodreads
I’ve been reading and hearing good things about this book. I know that being a gamer is an advantage on reading this and I’m lucky because my husband is a “gamer since birth”. I sometimes tease him that his twin brother is Super Mario. Other readers who’ve finished this book said that even if you don’t have a vague knowledge about games, you can still relate and enjoy this book. P.S. Armada is on my to-buy list.
Night Film by Marisha Peesl | Goodreads
This book was We The Book Dragons‘ book for the month of July and I wasn’t able to join the read-along. I’ve avoided reading the discussions because I still want to read this book but I cannot avoid to browse the pages. It has some pages with newspaper and internet clips. I can’t wait to read this.
I ordered these books from The Book Depository. Look how lovely the bookmarks are!
I’ve read a total of 4 books (2 physical and 2 ebooks) just like last month.
- The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith – It’s my second time participating the Bookish Pinoys Read-Along and this our BOTM. I kinda like this book because it’s Mystery and just like Robin, I also want to be like a detective’s assistant/secretary. I can’t wait to read the next case of Strike. I rated this 4 out of 5 stars.
- Every You, Every Me by David Levithan – The fourth book from David Levithan I’ve read. I just love this author. I rated this 4 out of 5 stars.
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – I’ve decided to read this because I want to know why almost everyone is reading and recommending it. And now I know why. I rated this 4 out of 5 stars.
- Spuntik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami – I also love this author. He’s just so talented and I can somehow relate to most of his characters. I rated this 4 out of 5 stars.
