Femme Fatale |First Line Fridays + The Friday 56

First Line Fridays

It is too easy to judge a book by its cover, its title or author, but how about by its opening lines? First Lines Fridays aims to get readers hooked on the first lines of a book before its details are revealed to them, allowing them to step out their comfort zone and discover new genres and authors.

The Friday 56

Grab a book, any book. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader. Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you. Post it. And share your link. It’s that simple.

How do you stop a murder that’s already happened? | Can’t Wait Wednesday 004

Philippine Lit(erature) is Still Lit: Once Upon a Player by Agay Llanera |Buwan ng mga Akdang Pinoy

From a fantasy story last week, let us talk about a sporty novel for this week’s Philippine Lit is Still Lit.

Every Saturday, for the whole month of August, I will be posting Philippine Lit is Still Lit to feature a Filipino literary piece that I’ve read and genuinely recommend. These literary pieces vary in type and genre because I want to introduce you to more of what the Philippine literature has to offer. My purpose in making this blog series is to simply prove to the world that Philippine literature is still (and will always be) lit. Mabuhay ang mga Pinoy na manunulat at ang kanilang mga akda! (Long live the Filipino authors and their literary works!)

This week, I am featuring a new adult romance and sports story that I’ve just finished reading today; therefore, still fresh and vivid in my mind.

THREE POINTS | Mini Book Reviews #3: BookTube-a-Thon 2018 Edition

Hey, avid readers! Back at it again with another readathon and another mini book reviews. *wink wink*

Last July 30th – August 5th, I participated for the third (or fourth?? I can’t remember!) time on BookTube-a-Thon hosted by Ariel Bissett on YouTube. As usual, I really had fun with this year’s BookTube-a-Thon, especially because I met new amazing avid readers! I was also able to vlog for three straight days and then just bailed out on the daily vlogging trend and it’s one thing that I’ve learned during the readathon: I. CANNOT. DO. DAILY. VLOGS. On top of that, I also did some Instagram challenges which are so fun; and also, the best part: Twitter sprints! If you want to view my BookTube-a-Thon playlist on YouTube, then just click here.

This post is just gonna be a run-down on all the books that I have read and SURPRISE, SURPRISE, my reading wrap-up video is also included!
