[BOOK TAG] Star Wars Book Tag

Hello there bibliophiles! In honor of the upcoming release of Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi, I’m doing the Star Wars book tag! Feel free to do this tag. (To some places/countries, it is already released!)

Darth Vader | A book that started out good but burned itself in the end

The first book that I can think of is Matched. I liked how the first book was written but the second book really ruined everything for me. It lead to me not reading the last installment of the trilogy.

Luke | A book that awakened your love for reading

I have read a lot of other book prior to reading Dial L for Loser by Lisi Harrison, but that book really awakened my love for reading. Plus, it is the first book I bought out of my varsity allowance back in grade school.

Leia | A book that split your heart in two

I’d say Crown of Midnight. It breaks my heart knowing the fact that Celaena and Chaol would never end up together. I cried like crazy reading the end of the book. I’d also say Me Before You. It was such a heart wrenching book and the movie made me feel so much pain. Seeing the heart break happen on a big screen hurts!

Han Solo | A book you didn’t want to read at first, but fell in love with it at the end

Shatter Me by . There is so much hype to this book, especially the announcement of three more books are added to the trilogy. I was scared to read it because it might be too overwhelming or it may not be something I would love. But gosh! I was wrong. I loved it!

Padme | A book where a character fell in love with the wrong person

Juliette fell for Warner, who at first was a bad person. Then we have Feyre who fell for Tamlin because she was captivated by him. But the end of the day, Juliette is perfect for Warner and Feyre found someone who she is linked to forever!

Rey | Strong female character

I can name so many strong female characters but my number one pick would always be Aelin Galathynius from Throne of Glass series.

Kylo Ren | Dramatic character we all love

To be honest, I cannot think of any character that is dramatic that we all love, because I have like one in mind but I think he doesn’t fit well with this prompt, so I’m leaving this blank (for now).

Obi-Wan | Hot character

Rhysand all the way! We all know how hot Rhys is! Imma right?

Finn | Couple shipped but didn’t happen

I shipped Eadlyn and Kile, from The Selection Series/The Heir and The Crown. I loved them together but it sucks that Eadlyn has to marry someone else!

Yoda | Books with different chronological order

There is only one book series that I can really say that it’s not in chronological order, Shadowhunter World.

Jar Jar Binks | A book you found boring and abandoned

I would say Crossed because, to be honest, I was expecting the book to progress that why I was able to read half of it but it didn’t! It was just so boring and it seems like the whole book is a filler for Matched and Reached.

gold-brown-floral-divider-1

So that concludes the book tag! If you’re a fan of Star Wars or not, you should try doing this tag! It’s fun and it really makes you question yourself!

Are you going to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi when its released on December 15th? Or to those who has seen it already, what did you think of it? (No spoilers, I’m still going to watch it!)

Thank you and til next time!

Christmas Wish List

Christmas is just a few days away and I thought why not share to you guys the things that I badly want to receive this Christmas or just any time of the year. I will be listing just the top 10 things I want to receive or things I wanna experience before or after Christmas (or even my birthday by the following month).

Note: Just to let it out there, I don’t expect any one of you to gift me any of these things because that would just be too much. And don’t think I’m a materialistic kind of girl, because I’m not. I actually prefer a little adventure than those expensive things. Okay?

#1 ALWAYS AND FOREVER, LARA JEAN by Jenny Han

I’m adding this here because ever since I found about the release of the third book in the installment, I was so hype up and failed to grab a copy on time. Or let it put it this way. I didn’t have the money to buy any book when the book got released and when I have money, the book is unavailable in our local bookstore. It sucks because up to this very day, there is no stocks of this book in NBS. And I can’t afford to buy one online because the money I have is enough to buy just one book and not enough to pay for the shipping fee.

#2 EMPIRE OF STORMS by Sarah J. Maas

Another book added to my wish list. I added this particular book, even if it was released last year, is because I wanna continue reading Queen of Shadows and when I finish it I can jump straight to EoS.

#3 CRAYOLA SUPERTIPS

I’ve been into bullet journaling for the past year and have been loving it. Along with the process of learning how to properly use my BuJo, I discovered calligraphy. I’ve been trying to make my calligraphy as good as possible. That’s why I want to have the cheapest alternative to an actual brush pen (i.e. Tombow Dual Brush Pen)

#4 WASHI TAPES (loads of them!)

This goes well with the previous item. I want to decorate my bullet journal with washi tapes. They are very easy to work with and uses less effort in designing.

#5 WONDER WOMAN: WAR BRINGER by Leigh Bardugo

As a huge fan of DC, I badly want to have a copy of the DC Icon books as it releases. So far the only book out there is Wonder Woman. And people have been raving about the book since it got released a few months ago.

#6 A RAVENCLAW CANDLE

Any Ravenclaw candle would do! I need to show my house pride by having this specific candle in my small candle collection. Plus I heard, the scent of the candle is amazing.

#7 A ONE MONTH SUBSCRIPTION TO ANY SUB BOX IN THE PH

It has been my dream since I entered bookstagram to have any subscription to any subscription box. And it would be a dream come true if ever I get to experience it someday. 💕

#8 STAR WARS NOTEBOOK

I’ve been a huge fan of Star Wars for two years. I know that’s not much compared to others but I’ve collecting a lot of Star Wars things. And I find that having a Star Wars notebook would be amazing. Plus I love collecting notebooks. I enjoy writing stories and bullet journal, so these notebooks would come in handy when I need them.

#9 SIX OF CROWS DUOLOGY by Leigh Bardugo

Aside from the Wonder Woman book by Leigh, I also want to own her Six of Crows duology. A lot of people have been raving about how great the books are and how amazing Leigh’s writing style is. So I want to read those books. Plus, I don’t have to worry about when the next book would be out because both book are already out.

#10 SUCCESS

This might be the only thing that isn’t an actual thing. In life, I really want to be successful. Right now, my main goal is to have a successful business. If you didn’t know yet, I co-own Empire Crates which is a Philippine-based merchandise subscription box. It has been a dream of mine to have this business and I really wish that sooner or later it would be a success and would later on be an international subscription. (I offer all of it to God!)


So that is the end of my current wish list! This list isn’t permanent. My priority would change as time passes.

Did you enjoy my little wish list? Do you have your own wish list? Share it with me and let’s talk about it! It can be anything that you’ve been waiting or aiming to gain!

Thank you and till next blog post.

#3 BOOKMARKS

The number of bookmarks in our collection is usually times two to our book collection. As bibliophiles, we don’t only collect books but we also love collecting bookmarks, even if we don’t use them that often.

Here are my fave local shops that sells bookmarks at very affordable prices:

HER MAD LIBRARYtheir bookmarks are beautiful and very good quality. You can get a customized bookmark for you friend and for yourself as well. Get it for only 35php per bookmark.

 

the.bookish.marks___BZPiKGHju95___
Photo by @the.bookish.marks

THE BOOKISH MARKS: their regular bookmarks are amazing. I personally love the designs and how it looks. I just wished I was able to get a bookmark or two before they went on a hiatus. But for sure they will be back with amazing new designs and variations. Keep an eye open for that.

 

ANEGELE ILLUSTRATES: they are currently having a Christmas sale, so it is a perfect time to get those magnetic bookmarks for a cheaper price for you or for your beloved friend. Don’t wait for the peak season to start because shipping would take forever.

BIBLIOFRIENDS: they are also having a sale. I’m not sure if it ended already or not, but check them out. They offer quality magnetic bookmarks. Her designs are amazing and I love how the chibi characters are drawn!

PANDAM_PHthey offer different kinds of bookish items but I want to focus on their bookmarks. I just checked their account while writing this and I fell in love with their designs. They are just so beautiful plus they are affordable. So check them out to get your own bookmarks or for your bookish friend.

#4 BOOKISH JEWELRIES

For once in our lives, we enjoy having jewelries, may it be earrings, rings, necklaces or bracelets, we love them. But one particular shop is offering a bookish theme jewelries. LITERARY SHOP is, of course, a Philippine based shop that offers bookish jewelries. They have different designs of necklaces, bracelets and rings. They also have bookish metal bookmarks and bookish key chains.

So you better check them out if your book loving friend loves jewelries. They are very affordable pieces and I heard they are great quality.

#5 CANDLES

This season of holidays, we enjoy lighting a candle to fully enjoy the spirit of the holidays. But as a book lover, we want to smell our bookish crushes and that’s why bookish candles are created. There are a lot of bookish candles being sold in our country right now.

Here are the few shops I know and adore because of their excellent bookish candles:

THE RUSTIC LIBRARYAs far as I can remember, they are the first bookish candle shop I’ve known and heard about and people have been raving about how amazing their candles are. Plus the girls behind this shop are absolute baes!

THE CANDLELIT SHELFtheir candles are amazing too and people, I mean book lovers, has been a huge fan of their candles. They offer different kinds of candles and they even went to the extend of adding dried rose petals into one of their candle scent. And it is just amazing.

THE HOUSE OF WICKSso far, they are the only candle shop I’ve tried and loved their candles. If I had the money I would buy more of their candles. They also make gorgeous candles. They have wax melts top their candles and it’s just amazing to look at.

THE BOOKISH LIGHTjust recently, I ordered candles from them for my subscription box. I opened one and it divine! I love the smell and how it looks like. Just like the three other shops mentioned, they also offer different varies and scent of candles that are solemnly based on book characters or settings (All of the other shops have this too).

So, if you know your friend is into these kind of merch, then go get them some candles. Just get them those candles that they will love, preferably from their fave books or fandoms.

#6 LIP BALM

Lip Balms are essentials especially in our country that is so hot and causes our lips to crack. There are tons of lip balms out there that are carried by well known brands. But as a book lover, we want something bookish. And that is why I’m adding this into the gift guide.

One particular shop sells bookish lip balms. THE CANLDELIT SHELF also sells lip balms aside from their standard candles. So you definitely check them out because I believe their balms are amazing and cruelty free!!!

#7 BOOK SLEEVES

Book sleeves are pouches specifically designed to fit a book, whether a paperback or trade paper back or hard cover. It is used to protect one’s book from folds, tears, rain and everything that would bring harm to our beloved books.

So this Christmas, why not gift a book lover friend a book sleeve? You can get yours at THE RUSTIC LIBRARYThey have a variety of designs (below are some of the designs they currently have) and sizes. But hurry up, their designs are limited and might possibly not restock with the same exact design the next time around. Better grab one for yourself or for your friend this Christmas.

#8 TOTE BAGS

Tote bags are a book lover’s friend. Why?, you ask. Well you can carry a tote bag filled with books any where you want to! When going book shopping, you can bring a tote bag and place you book purchases inside and no one would know you bought that much books in one go!

So, why not buy yourself a tote bag this Christmas or buy your friend a tote bag! You can get yours at BOOKISH PANDA PHThey are a sub shop of a subscription box here in Ph, Pouts and Fluffs Loot Box. Currently, they don’t have tote bag designs posted on their account but you can inquire. It doesn’t hurt when you do. (I’ll be getting my own tote bag from them soon).

Above, Pouts and Fluffs included one of their tote bags inside their Subscription Box. And it looks amazing! Just look at it!

#9 ROLL-ON PERFUMES

This time around, I might have mentioned them twice already but since they are the only one I know that sells Roll-on perfumes, I just have to mention them. THE RUSTIC LIBRARY is also selling roll-on perfumes that are inspired by bookish characters. A lot of people has been raving about them and a lot has express their love towards the product. So you should definitely get this a a gift for yourself or your friend this Christmas.

#10 TWINKLE LIGHTS

Here is the last and final gift idea for you book loving friend. If he or she is into bookstagramming, then this is perfect for them. Twinkle lights are one of the most used props in bookstagram, especially now that it’s Christmas season.  So better get them now because most of them are on sale this time of year. I found one earlier that cost Php 88 per 5m white twinkle lights.

Just look how amazing those photos are!


That concludes the 10 gift ideas for your bookish friends. Just so you know, there are a lot of other things to gift you bookish friends. But for me, those 10 things are what I want for myself if I had all the money in the world. Hahahaha

Anyway, I hope you loved my post and enjoyed it. And I hope it helped you out a bit. Til my next post, bibliophiles!

UNBOXING: The Crowns of Croswald

This is an over due unboxing. Please bare with me. I’ve been very busy with school and never got the time to write any blog post. Now that half of my school work are done, I can now focus on my blog and my bookstagram and of course, get back to reading more books!

Hello Bibliophiles!!!

This is an over due unboxing. Please bare with me. I’ve been very busy with school and never got the time to write any blog post. Now that half of my school work are done, I Processed with VSCO with m3 presetcan now focus on my blog and my bookstagram and of course, get back to reading more books!

Just last September, I received a gorgeous box from a publishing house (JKS Communication). The box is so gorgeous that I badly want to take out the huge sticker on top. I was glad it got removed and didn’t damage the gorgeous box in any way. Most of you might have already seen umboxings of this box but I can’t help but share it to you guys.

Processed with VSCO with m3 preset

So upon opening the box, the first thing that I saw was this gorgeous art print and a note which says “This magical box was personally created and boxed just for you by D.E. Night”. I feel so special with it (even though all of the reviewers who received this box got the same not.) Nonetheless, I still feel extra special.

The next I saw was these cute newspaper. At first thought it was just an ordinary newspaper to conceal what’s inside the box. But when I look at it closely I noticed that this newspaper has something to do with the book. Isn’t that a great way to make things inside the box coherent?

Once you open the newspaper up, the first thing I saw was this cute bottle wrapped in bubble wrap. I’ve seen a lot of people open this box already but I was still at awe when I saw it with my very own eyes, much more when I held it. At first I honestly didn’t know how to make it light up because it lights up, you guys! So when I looked inside the box, I saw this small note about how to make the Glanagerie bottle light up. It tells you how to make it light up and all. Reading it confused the heck of me. I still didn’t know how to make the bottle light up. So I tried turning the cap until it’s loose and a white paper fell out. And that paper was what the note was talking about. Stupid right?

I then saw a paper that tells us about the book inside the box and an author question and answer. Also, the facts about the book and when it was going to be released. Then the next thing I saw was the note about the origin of the Glanagerie bottle.

After that, I saw another note but this time, it’s the author’s letter to the readers, to us!

Processed with VSCO with m3 preset

And finally the book! The cover is just so beautiful! I can’t stop staring at it when I first laid eyes on it. And did I mention, I was in school when I first opened and saw it? It was awkward knowing that there are students inside the classroom already; and they were witnessing me just starring at a book they don’t know about. But I can’t help it! THE COVER IS TOO GORGEOUS NOT TO STARE AT IT! JUST LOOK AT THAT! Just look at the details!

Processed with VSCO with m3 preset

The book is THE CROWNS OF CROSWALD by D.E. Night.

Synopsis:

In Croswald, the only thing more powerful than dark magic is one secret…

For sixteen years Ivy Lovely has been hidden behind an enchanted boundary that separates the mundane from the magical. When Ivy crosses the border, her powers awaken. Curiosity leads her crashing through a series of adventures at the Halls of Ivy, a school where students learn to master their magical blood and the power of Croswald’s mysterious gems. When Ivy’s magic––and her life––is threatened by the Dark Queen, she scrambles to unearth her history and save Croswald before the truth is swept away forever.

You can grab a copy this book now!

Get yours here:  Amazon  | Barnes & Noble

Processed with VSCO with m3 preset

So, this is what the whole box looks like in one photo!

A HUGE THANK YOU to JKS Communications for sending this box my way! I certainly cannot wait to read this book, I have it on my October TBR pile, so it would be soon!

I hope you enjoyed that unboxing of mine. I’ll have more unboxing in the near future!

Thank you and have a great day!

Throne of Glasss Book Tag

Let’s do a Throne of Glass inspired book tag!

Hello Bibliophiles!!!

I was tagged by Angele from @angelereadsbooks  to do this tag! And to think I love Throne of Glass, so I’m definitely doing this!

This book tag was created by Hannah from soobsessedwith and Alexa from alexalovesbooks.

Here goes…


LYSANDRA | A BOOK WITH A COVER CHANGE YOU LOVED

Would choosing the Throne of Glass series okay? Because I do love the cover change of the first book.

Musing-Cover-Change-ToG-1024x866

Just look at how badass that new cover is!

ABRAXOS | A BOOK THAT’S BETTER ON THE INSIDE THAN IT LOOKS ON THE OUTSIDE

I don’t think I own a book that has an awful cover but has amazing plot and all. But I do know one particular series. A lot of people says it’s an amazing book despite how bluh the covers are.  I won’t mention it because I haven’t read the series yet.

ERILEA | A SERIES WITH GREAT WORLD-BUILDING

I personally would say The Red Sun by Alane Adams or let’s just say the entire Legend of Orkney. This is a middle grade book that is described as “Percy Jackson meets Norse Mythology” by Foreword Reviews.

covers-1.png

Plus the covers are amazing! Just look at that!

RIFTHOLD | A BOOK THAT COMBINES GENRES

According to the what I’ve previously read last month, I think Three Dark Crowns has this Science Fiction vibes in it even if it’s actually a Fantasy book.

23207027

DAMARIS | A BOOK BASED ON/INSPIRED BY A MYTH/LEGEND

Would it be acceptable if I mention the same series as the previous prompt? Because I’m choosing that particular series because it has Norse Mythology on it! Obviously! You definitely need to read this series because it brings you back to those days when you just want to go to other places in you imagination.

KALTAIN ROMPIER | A BOOK WITH AN UNEXPECTED TWIST

26074181

I’d say The Crown by Kiera Cass, the fifth book of the Selection Series. I hated how things went at the end of this book. Just the mere fact that she chose someone else just because she wants to let the person she loves, free! I know that;s reasonable but why would you do that when he is willing to stay in that castle for YOU!

Can you tell I’m still not over it?!

ASSASSIN’S KEEP | A BOOK WITH AN UNRELIABLE NARRATOR

I find the Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie having a very unreliable narrator. Especially the second book because of how confusing the multiple point of view change every freaking chapter. That moment you still can’t understand the previous chapter, then you flip to the next chapter still cannot understand it all. Like how they don’t coincide and they don’t help you understand it!

But this may be different for you. This is how I see the book.

ASTERIN BLACKBEAK | A BOOK THAT’S GOT SQUAD GOALS

I’d always say the Inner Circle from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by the queen Sarah J. Maas. Who doesn’t love Rhys, Feyre, Mor, Amren, Azriel and Cassian? They are the definition of squad goals!

The_Inner_Circle_by_Charlie_Bowater.jpg
Photo by Charlie Bowater

Just look at them? JUST LOOK AT THEM!!!

TERRASEN | A BOOK THAT FEELS LIKE HOME

The book that immediately came into mind is The Clique series by Lisi Harrison. This might not be that homie feels but I have enjoyed reading this book while I’m doing nothing but just read when I’m home.

001

I haven’t read the entire series just yet. I have to find the rest of the books somewhere in a thrift bookstore.

AELIN ASHRYVER GALATHYNIUS | A BOOK WITH THE POWER TO DESTROY YOU

I’d say any Colleen Hoover book has the power to destroy me! I’ve read almost all of her books and not a single book I didn’t cry. I cried in all the books because it was just so heart breaking and you can not hold those tears! But believe me when I say, the books are all amazing!

MANON BLACKBEAK | A BOOK THAT INTIMIDATED YOU

I’ve been wanting to read the Game of Thrones books but because they are just so huge, I am intimidated to read it!

9780007477159.jpg

Plus, the books are far behind the TV show, so I think I’ll just settle with the TV show for now.

CHAOL WESTFALL | A BOOK THAT CHALLENGED YOU TO SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY

I’d say, It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover.

27362503

It’s not everyday that the person you love your whole life would be with you until the end.  You can’t just let that person hurt you the whole time because that would just too much to handle for a person who suffered too much in the past. Also you just have to do decide not for yourself but for the people that would be part of your life someday.

FLEETFOOT | A BOOK THAT YOU RECEIVED AS A GIFT

I received a lot of gifts that are books. I won’t consider the books sent to me by the authors. My boyfriend has gifted me with so much books over the past few years. The most I got was in my 18th birthday, in which he gifted me with 9 Pop Fiction books!

10707043_678548795592079_114431375_n

EYE OF ELENA | A BOOK YOU FOUND RIGHT WHEN YOU NEEDED IT

I’d say Dream Me by Kathryn Berla. I was sent this book for review. This book helped me get out of my reading slump a few months ago! So I believe this book came at the perfect time for me.

IMG_20170529_114634


This tag is amazing! Thank you Angele for the tag!

I’m tagging Hanna from @hannabananareads and Nicole from @themugglereader to do this tag!

BOOKISH SHOP REVIEW: ANGELE ILLUSTRATE

Hello Bibliophiles!!!

This is a new segment in my blogging life. Over the past few months, there has been a lot of bookish shops being established in my country. So I have decided to feature and review about them here on my blog.

First up is Angele Illustrate (@angeleillustrate on Instagram).

Angele Illustrate is a bookish shop owned by Angele, hence the name. The shop sells Magnetic Bookmarks and Feysand Funko Pops. Angele is the best person in the world. I have worked with her in my two subscription boxes. She gave us freebies and as a sign of gratitude to her undying kindness, I decided to order four bookmarks from her.

My first ever magnetic bookmarks, I got from her shop. I didn’t expect to get freebies when we ordered for our sub box. I got a totally of six magnetic bookmarks.

  • Mor
  • Amren
  • America Singer
  • Luna Lovegood
  • Harry Potter
  • Kaz Brekker (I lost this because someone stole my boyfriend’s book, and he was using Kaz as the bookmark)

I was so in love with the bookmarks. I’m a huge fan of bookmarks. I even used Luna right away even though I wasn’t reading a Harry Potter book. The quality of the bookmarks are amazing. The print is clear and has no blur areas or what not. The actually design is spectacular!!! I salute anyone who can draw as good as her.

Just last month my sub shop ordered another set of bookmarks. Since the shop was having a sale and I was so tempted to buy some. So I decided to just order my own magnetic bookmarks.
I got a total of four pieces from her shop.

  • Feysand Chapter 55
  • Aelin
  • Daenerys

They were perfect. Just what I wanted! But aside from the four magnetic bookmarks I ordered, ate Angele was generous enough to give us four more!

  • Rowan
  • Feysand during the Starfall
  • Sushi (I don’t eat sushi but it’s so cute to not fan girl about it!

So if you’re looking for magnetic bookmarks as cute as those above, check out Angele Illustrate on Instagram now!


Thank you for reading and until next bookish shop review/feature.

BOOK TAG: Mid-Year Book Freak Out

Hello bibliophiles!

I saw this tag in Bibliophile Med Student‘s blog and decided to do it since it’s like the middle of the year now, kind of. So, let’s do this!

1. BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2017

images.jpgThis one is hard! I’ve read a lot of great books this year so far. I don’t think I can chose! But I have to, right? I’d definitely go with A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas because that is one of my most anticipated book of the year. And it made me cry like so hard! It made me feel a lot of emotions, I didn’t think I have. Check out my review here.

2. YOUR FAVORITE SEQUEL OF 2017

images (1).jpgWhy is this hard? I’d go with A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas with this. I read ACOTAR last year and it was amazing. But upon reading ACOMAF, I just fell in love with Rhysand! Who didn’t, right? I have a review of this, here.

3. A NEW RELEASE YOU HAVEN’T READ BUT WANT TO

51-HArKnTQL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

I’d say, Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han. This is another one of my most anticipated release .this year. The reason I haven’t read it yet is because I haven’t bought a copy of the book yet. I plan to get it as soon as I have the money.

4. MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE OF THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR

31450852.jpg

This is going to be another SJM book and that is Tower of Dawn. Who isn’t excited for that?

5. YOUR BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT

I expected to much with Somewhere In Between by Katie Li. The cover was amazing and the synopsis was amazing too. But I honestly didn’t like how it was written or might have just been me. But if you’re curious, check out my full thoughts on this book here.

6. BIGGEST SURPRISE OF THE YEAR

I am super surprised with my sudden love for Colleen Hoover books. But what surprised me the most is It Ends With Us. I didn’t expect that it was that intense to read the book. I cried a river. Check out my full thoughts and emotions here.

7. FAVE NEW TO YOU OR DEBUT AUTHOR

Just like what I said earlier, Colleen Hoover. She’s not a new author but I’ve only read her books this year. So, she’s fairly new to me! And I’ve been binge reading her books now!

8. YOUR NEW FICTIONAL CRUSH

I don’t have any new fictional crush so far.

9. NEW FAVORITE CHARACTER

Lily Bloom from It Ends With Us! She’s the person I look up to not because of her past but because of how strong she become after every awful thing that happened to her. I just love strong female characters.

10. BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY

It Ends With Us, obviously! Full review here. (Just read the book, so you’ll know!)

11. A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY

Something In Between by Melissa Dela Cruz. I cannot help but love this book because of it’s Filipino lead character and plus a Filipino author!

12. FAVE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION YOU’VE SEEN THIS YEAR

I haven’t watched any book to movie adaptation so far. I ain’t got the money to see them.

13. FAVE BOOK POST PUBLISHED THIS YEAR

The blog post of Nica from nicsthebibliophile. She interviewed me! Check it out!

14. MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE BOUGHT/RECEIVED

 

I’d say my very first copy of any of Cassandra Clare’s books. I bought a hard cover copy of City of Lost Souls! It was a huge steal! I got it for more than half off it’s price!
