• I won a limited edition tote bag from @I’veReadThat and I’m so excited to use it. Check out their website at and feel free to follow me.
• I’ve discovered through a friend in Instagram an awesome app called Steller. You can share your photos/videos as slideshows on this app. Here’s my account. (This app reminds me of VscoCam.)
• I would like to thank Isshie of Bookishmouie for featuring me (and my blog) on Venture Through Worlds, a blog where you can find Filipino bloggers all over the world. The blog is quite new so I’m calling out all the Filipino bloggers out there. Visit the blog for more info.

I’m currently re-reading An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. I’ve read this book almost 3 years ago and it’s my least favorite book of Green. I’m re-reading this because my two reading buddies (Hi Joyce and KL!) are reading this. We’re also doing a read-along for the month of June and we picked Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

We’re planning to visit Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp tomorrow. I hope the weather will be good.

All in all, it was an awesome month for me. ♥

    through something like that before. So great to discover someone
    with some unique thoughts on this issue. Seriously..

  2. You dont know me but my name is Elisa and I bought The 3 Week Diet one month ago. I want to share my weight loss story with you, Brian.
    Since having my first child, I’ve been carrying around an extra 30 pounds. I’ve tried many diets and couldn’t make anything work. Your diet just made sense and showed me that everything I was doing was wrong and a waste of my time.
    The 3 Week Diet plan was so refreshing and so simple to follow. I did everything you said and lost 23 pounds in the first three weeks. Im now starting the diet again to lose 7 more pounds. You have changed my life, and I am incredibly thankful.
