You know how when you’re reading a book and imagining the story in your head, you put some sort of color into their world as well? Like if it’s a crime/mystery novel, it would be like monochromatic scheme even if the setting is during the day? Or if it’s a young adult novel about teen love, you see so much bright colors?
I don’t know if it’s just me, though (and I’m really hoping that it isn’t the case), and how I imagine these stories in my head. But anyway, that wasn’t my point. Continue reading Okay, Jenny Han, I See You
I have a lot of books on my TBR pile. Currently, there are exactly 355 books on my to-read shelf on Goodreads, and honestly, I’m not really sure how I’m going to get through all of them since I just constantly add more and more titles as new ones are released.
And then I stumbled upon this post that gave me an idea. So for today, I’m going through my to-read list — from the oldest one that I added — and I’ll check if they’re books I’d still want to read. I’m also gonna include a list of 3 books that I want to read first. Continue reading Diving Down My TBR Pile, Vol. 1
I’m not going to butcher this great book by writing a review that’s mostly filled with my hatred for the Philippine government (but just a shout out to those who are “fans” of Duterte and his agendas, I suggest you read this book to give you some perspective).
But I will say that The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a book that’s not only timely and relevant in the USA, but also here in the Philippines. It’s not only a reality for the African-American folks in the USA, but also for the less-fortunate people (those who live in the slums aka “squatters’ area”) here in the Philippines.

I have been reading quite a lot since the start of the year. By the first week of March, I have already finished reading 27 books in total and had 2 books that I marked as DNFs (did not finish). Now that we’re halfway through the month, I can’t seem to finish a single damn book.
I still am reading; I haven’t stopped, really. But there’s just too many things clouding my head at the moment that I can’t seen to finish another one, no matter how hard I try (thing is, with reading books for pleasure, one should not have to try, anyway). Continue reading Welcome to the Inevitable Reading Slump
I need to talk about this book immediately. Well, without giving away any spoilers that is. And I have to be really careful with that because I might end up blabbing away the good part. I just finished reading this about 5 minutes ago (February 28) and I still haven’t picked up my jaw from the floor.
It’s still there; still in shock and still in awe of what I just read. Needless to say, I’m seriously impressed with this debut novel from author Lisa Hall. Continue reading ‘Between You and Me’ Actually Delivers the Twist
