First Lines Fridays · The Friday 56

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.

Hosted by Wandering Words

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.

Buwan ng mga Akdang Pinoy · Philippine Literature

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.
