Hey, everyone! I know this is a troubling time for all of us. I, personally, suffer from anxiety attacks every once in while whenever I think about the situation that we are all facing today, especially when I come to the realization that we do not know when this global crisis will end.
We are all well-aware that this is a very serious issue and I am, by no means, making light in all that is happening, but trying to avoid and spend a little time away from social media and other things that could possibly increase my anxiety per day would help. We all just need to make sure that we are responsible enough to stay indoors for the time-being until all this is over. I cannot stress this enough, and I think I’ve mentioned this in all my social media platforms: Remember, the more we stay indoors and practice social distancing, the sooner we can go back to our normal lives.
So aside from doing my part in making sure to stay indoors to help stop the spread of this virus, I thought that, as a reader, I could at the very least make a recommendation post for readers out there who are stuck at home or even just for the general public who wonders, “What good book should I read next?” Continue reading →

Do you ever get stuck in that phase where you just don’t get any reading done? It happens a lot to me these days because there are a lot of other things to focus on aside from reading. Like, recently we have a lot of projects coming our way at work or some personal issues to attend to or Netflix. I think majority of the reason why I couldn’t get some reading done is because I’ve been watching Friends recently and I wanted to finish all 10 seasons so bad. With that, I haven’t really made any progress in reading Timeline by Michael Crichton, but I did read a bunch of manga. Continue reading →
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. As for me, I don’t plan on buying any new books as I haven’t read most of the books I bought and received in the past couple of months, but when my boyfriend and I visited NBS’s Greenbelt 1 branch, I just couldn’t resist. I mean, these books are so cheap, I just needed to get them!
There are so many bookish events going on recently that’s just too hard to ignore. Last month, NBS had this huge (and crazy!) month-long sale. I spent almost every weekend looking for awesome titles and it was my birth month, so I feel like it’s okay to splurge every once in a while!
This month, it’s my cousins birth month and she’s also just as bookish as I am. So during the weekend, my grandfather decided to go to C. Raymundo, Pasig City so we could buy (or hoard, in our case) a lot of books.
Here are the books I got from the sale, I didn’t avail their Box-All-You-Can books, but I do got all these books for almost half their original prices, isn’t that amazing?! I’m still so happy that I found The Search For WondLa because,I swear, I’ve been looking for it in every bookstore!
I also picked up the three weeks’ worth of comic books I reserved. Finally, I was getting scared that they wouldn’t hold my reservation anymore. Ha ha
Now, I wonder when I’m going to get to finish reading all this, given that I’ve grown really busy this month and then this May, Fullybooked will be holding their annual Free Comic Book Day! I’m so hyped up because graphic novels will be at 20% off! For more details, click here and follow their Facebook and Twitter page. 🙂
Here’s a quick book haul post — It’s been a while since I last posted a haul on my blog. I haven’t been buying books lately because I told myself at the start of the year that I’m going to minimize my book buying since I still got a load of TBR piled up in my room. But my grandfather have a friend who is selling some of her son’s used books and guess where that lead me.
My grandfather got all these for only ₱420! Can you believe that? So anyway, I’m still reading Curiosity House: The Shrunken Head by Lauren Oliver and H.C. Chester. Plus, I read some comic books over the weekend:
