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! ♡

2016 Wrap Up: Year In Books

image

The past year has finally come to a close and though it has been a very frustrating and challenging year for most of us, I actually still had a great reading year!

So in 2016 I’ve read a total of 52 books of my Goodreads goal of 30! This was actually the first time I’ve ever read more than my goal and I am so happy. I’ve read A LOT of comic books last year since DC Comics launched their Rebirth series and I was just too hyped about it. But aside from that, I’ve also read some novels and poem books. So below are list of the titles I’ve read:

Comics:

I didn’t push through with Harley Quinn and Supergirl because it didn’t quite work out for me as much as the others.

Novels:

So I guess that wraps it all up! I’m certainly looking forward to more reading this 2017 and may all the booknerds out there have another great reading year ahead!

#MIBF2016

Went to the 37th Manila International Book Fair last Sunday with my cousin! After so many years of planning to go, I finally got the chance to! Finally, you guys! It was crazy inside because there are so many people since it’s the last day of the event, but it was an awesome experience nevertheless.

We only spent an hour or so inside. The lines were so long (so so so so long!!! and I’m not even overreacting) that it took us 30 minutes before we were able to pay for our books inside the Fullybooked booth! After paying, we tried roaming around just so we could see other booths and bookish events happening at the time. We also grabbed a copy of the MIBF map since my cousin wanted a remembrance from the event.

I personally loved this booth with all those hugot lines hanging above the place.

image

There are actually A LOT of people inside and it’s really hard to walk or overtake from anyone. My brother actually came inside with us, but we lost him somewhere, so he decided to go and just wait for us outside.

The only selfie we got from inside and I just realized that there aren’t any sight of books in the background from where we took the picture. *sad*

Here’s my very small MIBF book haul!

I can’t wait to start reading them but at the moment, I’m currently reading The Could Searchers (Amulet, #3) by Kazu Kibuishi! It’s a graphic novel and I’m so happy that I’m finally catching up with all the graphic novel series I’ve started reading last year. Yas. *hearts everywhere*
