Monthly Recap : July 2015

What’s up fellow Book Lovers?! I’ve been MIA again and I’m sorry for that. I’m just loosing focus on blogging and I can’t bring myself to write some decent book reviews. Hopefully this will pass. So right now I want to share some of the highlights from last month. It was a great and memorable month for me.

  • The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
  • The Clocks by Agatha Christi
  • Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami
  • Angelfall by Susan Ee
  • Shadow Man by Cody McFadyen
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern (4.5 out of 5 stars)

This book is magical! The characters are unique and interesting, the storyline is brilliant, and the author made me want to wish that Le Cirque des Rêves is real. I highly recommend this book. It may be a little slow in the beginning but just continue and I’m telling you, it’s worth it.

THE SELECTION by Kiera Cass (3.5 out of 5 stars)

The book’s cover made me buy it. I had no idea what this book is all about and I thought this is like an “American Idol” kind of story but it’s not. Maybe because America’s last name is Singer and she sings. The Selection is more like “The Bachelor”. I personally don’t like the idea of the competition (The Bachelor) so I was a little unsure of my feelings towards the story but I’m glad that I still ended up enjoying it. Full review.

July Highlight : July 24. 2015

We (finally) got married! We’ve been processing the papers since April last year and we’re so grateful that everything went well. We had a simple ceremony and celebration that day, just like what we’ve wanted. We are so happy that we are officially Mr and Mrs. ♥

Have a nice day everyone! 🙂

Monthly Wrap-Up : November 2014

IMG_3705I’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.
