• Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

    The first time I heard about Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One was way back in 2011. It was highly recommended by almost every book blogger and booktuber I follow. And it still is. However, I belong to the proportion of people who picked up the book upon the announcement of its film adaptation sometime last year. I don’t know about other avid book readers, but personally, I have this requirement that I must read the book first before seeing the movie. Of course, it’s not always the case but if I have the chance, that’s how I manage it most of the time. I think it’s mostly because I know…

  • To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

    Jenny Han is a staple for every book enthusiast when talking about contemporary reads. I can tell why many people enjoy her books. I am quite familiar with her other works such as The Summer I Turned Pretty series and Burn for Burn series. But, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is my first Jenny Han read and I am all but disappointed with the experience. I’m not sure why it took me so long to pick up this book. I only got around reading it until late last year, even though I’ve had a copy since 2015. Anyway, I’ve decided to finally pick up the book for good,…

  • Children Of Blood and Bone By Tomi Adeyemi

    Children of Blood and Bone is a YA debut novel by Tomi Adeyemi. It’s the first book from the Legacy of Orisha trilogy. I discovered this book through the online book community and a lot of them are raving about it. Naturally, I was half-scared to pick it up. Many readers can relate to that feeling when a hyped up book would left us feeling disappointed or confused. We wonder what did we miss? How come they enjoyed it more than we did? Thanks to the gorgeous cover and captivating blurb I put that thought aside. I decided to give this book the benefit of the doubt and I am…

  • If I Stay by Gayle Forman

    *This is a book review people! Not a movie review. I used a still from the movie because someone borrowed my copy of If I Stay. I doubt she has any plans of returning it any time soon. If it’s any consolation, I adore this pic of Chloe and Jamie. Their chemistry was insane in the movie!! When I discovered Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, the plot somehow reminded me of the Korean drama 49 Days which is one of my all-time favorite Korean dramas. Although it was so much more dramatic. The whole scenario of getting stuck-in-a-limbo kind of stories fascinates me. I was curious about how the author…

  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer

    I love fairy tales as much as the next girl. They are the kinds of stories I’ve read first when I was a kid, and I love them until now. And so, when I found out that there was a new Cinderella retelling, I got curious and a bit skeptical. The reason is that I’ve only read a few numbers of retellings and some of them aren’t exactly as good as I expected them to be. Another reason is that Sci-Fi wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. It’s not that I don’t like Sci-Fi, but it’s the genre that I hardly reach for (I’m more of a fantasy/adventure kind of…

  • Ask Me by Kimberly Pauley

    The story’s plot intrigued me the moment I read it. It seems really interesting and a bit different from other mystery stories I’ve read before and so I signed up on the blog tour hosted by Pinoy Book Tours a few weeks ago. Ask Me by Kimberly Pauley Publication date: April 8th 2014 Published by: Soho Teen Source: Pinoy Book Tours (Thanks!!) Ask Aria Morse anything, and she must answer with the truth. Yet she rarely understands the cryptic words she‘s compelled to utter. Blessed—or cursed—with the power of an Oracle who cannot decipher her own predictions, she does her best to avoid anyone and everyone. But Aria can no…

  • The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider

    Hello, there! It’s been a long time since I was here. So many things had happened over the past year, which are mostly good things, but no matter, I’m happy to say that I’m back into blogging now and I think it’s only fitting to start off by reviewing the book that reminded me of how much I love talking about books. My first encounter with The Beginning of Everything was December of last year. I was on a local bookstore to finally grab my copy of Anna & the French Kiss (which was on my wishlist since, like, forever). Truthfully, the book title didn’t grab my attention as much…
