Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Monday, Wormies! I finally survived the first romance panel that I moderated! Yes, there was a lot of fangirling involved! A few months ago, I was asked by these amazing authors: Mia Hopkins, Maida Malby, Tif Marcelo, and Sarah Smith to moderate their panel at The Ripped Bodice. It was an honor to moderate this panel because all these ladies are Filipino-American authors writing about characters of color and representing the Filipino, and Filipino-American culture!   We had an amazing time talking about books, romance and Filipino & Filipino American representation in literature. I love that everyone […]

Historical Romance Retreat Wrap-Up

Historical Romance Retreat Wrap-Up

Let’s talk about anything bookish! Finally, I’m sharing my wrap-up post for this AMAZING EVENT! I was mostly in vacation mode in the month of September and the first couple of weeks in October had me catching up to real life! Anyway, I had an awesome time at the Historical Romance Retreat (HRR)! This is the first bookish event that I attended for ALL THE DAYS and I LOVED it so much! I have been to other bookish events, but normally, I would always get the weekend pass instead of the full event! The Hotel HRR was held at the historic Mission Inn […]

LA Times Festival of Books Wrap-Up

LA Times Festival of Books Wrap-Up

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   I spent most of this weekend at the LA Times Festival of Books! Although I wasn’t too happy about the non-existence of the Romance Panel, I was able to meet a few new to me authors and a favorite author! Because I normally don’t research things beforehand, I was extremely surprised that the Universal City station actually has paid parking now! It was free for the longest time! Anyway, I was a little bit disoriented since it’s been a couple of years since I took the Metro, but I was able to make it in one […]

A Love-a-thon Mini-Challenge #2 Mix + Match

Hosted by: Alexa of Alexa Loves Books, Cee of The Novel Hermit, Kristin of Super Space Chick & Mel of The Daily Prophecy I’ve always been a bookworm. But that’s not all I do! I was a little artsy as a kid. Not that I’m really good and all, but I love my creative side. Sure, I can’t draw or paint to save my life but I did take a painting class one summer when I was 10 (or thereabouts). Last year I shared my hobbies so this year, I am adding a few more to the list. And as […]

Make Me Read It Readathon

Make Me Read It Readathon

I’m sick with the common cold.  OH God!  This is the THIRD time this year!  OH PLEASE!  I think the stress is getting to me!  Plus I have a very busy week next week, so that isn’t helping me. Anyway, since I’ve been pretty down in the dumps the last 2 days, I decided to join the Make Me Read It Readathon hosted by Ely @ Tea and Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley.  This is all because of my friend Annika @ Hiding Books‘ fault.  Blame her for this and not my being sick! This readathon will be from July […]
