What’s For Halloween #1

Halloween is one of the most looked-forward-to celebrations towards the end of the year because it’s that one time of the year when people get to show off their creativity by dressing up, decorating their homes, etc. And since Halloween is lurking around the corner, I bet everyone’s already busy and excited preparing for those Halloween parties and trick-or-treating!

But some people just aren’t into all that stuff; like those who enjoy spending these holidays by reading books. So if you’re one of those people but you still want to get into that “Halloween spirit,” then you’ve come to the right place.

National Bookstore’s Book Blowout

Bookstore sales and secondhand bookstores are one of the most beautiful things on earth for a bookworm like me, and one of the leading bookstores in the Philippines just announced that they will hold their annual book blowout event in all of their Metro Manila branches!

I’ve seen a lot of awesome titles being posted around the web by my fellow bookworms.

My boyfriend and I along with his mom went on this trip in June, and I wasn’t really sure I was going to join them until the last minute and I only thought about visiting bookstores when we were actually there. Thank heavens for the Internet! Continue reading

March Wrap Up

I rarely post wrap ups anymore because I don’t really have the time to read as many books as much as I used to. But during the start of the month, I decided to get ambitious with the books I am going to read (here’s my post about it).

I’ve read 5 books out of the 6 I included on my list to read this month and though I failed to finish that one book, I’m still happy that I got to read a lot this month. I’ve also reviewed them on my blog, so I’ll include the links to those as well.

  1. The Choice by Nicholas Sparks (Full review)
  2. The Universe Of Us by Lang Leav (Full review)
  3. Dear Distance by Luis Katigbak (Full review)
  4. The Little Prince by  Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (Full review)
  5. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira (Full review)
  6. Paper Girls Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan

The Choice was a carry-over from the past month and I finished it during the first week of March. I’ve also read a short story and some comic books that aren’t part of the list of titles I wanted to read this month.

  1. Letters From Crispin by Cyan Abad-Jugo (Full review)
  2. Light by Rob Cham
  3. Batwoman #1
  4. Justice League/Power Rangers #3
  5. Trinity #7
  6. Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #8
  7. Nightwing #16

Right now, I’m still reading It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover and loving it! ♡
