Hi, everyone! I’ve been MIA again for quite some time there. It’s just that this pandemic and the current situation of my country has been taking a toll on my mental health. I’ve also been busy with other personal things, I guess. Another thing that has been bothering me lately is the sudden rise of hate crimes against the AAPI community recently, and I just can’t sit around in silence knowing that people have died while others are terrified and feeling unsafe in a world that we are all supposed to be sharing. Most especially during this pandemic, no one deserves to feel even more scared than we already are. Continue reading →
Today’s post is about my most anticipated releases for this year. I am so excited to talk about all these, but before we dive into the books themselves, take note that this list will only contain either standalones, non-fictions, or new series.

I know this is a week too late, but I’ve been trying to write this ever since January 1st and I just can’t seem to find the right words to write this blog post.

This year is one of the best reading years for me and the entirety of 2020 was spent catching up on series and releases that I have not been able to read the past couple of years. It’s also the year where I bought so many books as I wanted to support my local bookstores during the pandemic. I’ve bought a lot of books that have been sitting on my Goodreads want-to-read shelf for years now, and I am so happy about it. Now, I just need more time to read all of them.
There are also books sitting on my physical shelves for years and still haven’t gotten to them because ever since I started working six years ago, I didn’t have a lot of time reading except for those years where I feel really lost and turn all my attention into reading. Anyway, I’ll be listing all of them in this post and, hopefully, I get to read every book on this list in 2021. Continue reading →
