My Life is an Angsty Romance Novel…

My Life is an Angsty Romance Novel…

  I interrupt my regularly scheduled post for a personal post. I usually don’t write posts that are too personal and only include bits and pieces of it when I write my Monthly Wrap-up posts or Currently Reading posts, but I wanted to write one today. On March 24, 2008, Pierre and I tied the knot. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since we got married and I have known him for over half my life! I kid you not, the first time I spoke to him on the phone, I hung up on him. I honestly can’t remember what […]

April Vacay in my Hometown

April Vacay in my Hometown

Life stories from the blogger Hello, wormies! I bet you were wondering where I disappeared to? Well, I was actually ehemm on vacation in my hometown, Dumaguete City, in the Philippines. Why wasn’t I blogging? Well, I planned on blogging while I was on vacation but my plan did not pan out as well as I expected it to. I mean, I just realized that I NEVER updated my internet plan since I was in college, which was roughly 10 years ago. WHAT?!! Yep, I just didn’t think about it and so, the internet was crawwwwwling. On another note, I celebrated […]

5 Books About and Written by Filipinos I Want to Read/Re-Read

5 Books About and Written by Filipinos I Want to Read/Re-Read

Blogger Insider: Life stories from the blogger As I am prepping for my trip back home (yes, I still call the Philippines home), I wanted to share books and stories set in the Philippines and also about the Philippines. The sad thing is, I have not read a lot of these books so hopefully, I will rectify my mistake. Unfortunately, one of my problems is that I have a hard time reading in Tagalog, which is the Philippine national language. Yes, I can speak it, and yes I can understand it, but I actually have a hard time reading in Tagalog. Before you bring out […]

Book & Movie Adaptations: A Beauty and the Beast Inspired Post

Book & Movie Adaptations: A Beauty and the Beast Inspired Post

Let’s talk about anything bookish! I am super excited for the upcoming Beauty and the Beast live-action feature so I decided to write a post inspired by Beauty and the Beast. Like most of us who grew up in the 90s, Disney’s 1992 animated feature Beauty and the Beast holds a very special place in our hearts. In fact, I would say that it has made an impression. Well in my life, that is true. Belle was (AND IS) my favorite Disney princess. To my 8-year-old mind, Belle made an impression. She was the one who made me think of adventure and of course, reading! Would […]

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 […]

Blogger Insider: My Bookish Christmas Wishlist

Blogger Insider: My Bookish Christmas Wishlist

Get inside the mind of a blogger It is now October and what does that mean? It means we are 2 months away (barely) to Christmas, my favorite holiday! Not only does it involve food (lots of it), it is also a time to spend with family. I am really lucky that the company I work for has lots of holiday days around the Christmas holiday (pun intended). This means that I will have some time SOLELY spent for reading, blogging, and reading! But what is it that my bookish heart really wants for the holidays? Well, here is a list…some […]
