Friday Faves: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Friday Faves: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week.   Purchased this audiobook on Audible and DID NOT REGRET IT!  This book is freaking AWESOME!  I love it so much and SUPER glad that it is not a series!  There are two more books in the Graceling Realm but they have different characters!  These characters may intersect and “visit” other books but there is a new hero and heroine!  I love that this is not a “saga type” of book because I can just finish this book without […]

Friday Faves: Reading on a Budget

Friday Faves: Reading on a Budget

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. Bookish problem number one is CASH, I think.  Books are GOOD but unfortunately, they do cost a fair amount of money.  Especially if you’re like me who obsessively buys books (physical or digital) regularly. In the few years since I have been actively blogging, I have found a few ways to NOT spend as much money on books.  Of course, there is the proverbial secondhand bookstore where you can get books at a bargain.  But how often do you […]

Friday Faves: YA Audiobooks

Friday Faves: YA Audiobooks

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. Yes!  I am able to find time to write my weekly feature!  I have been really busy these last few weeks and I haven’t been updating as much as I would want to.  Well, whatever.  Excuses. My current obsession is audiobooks.  Not just any genre, mind you, but Young Adult!  I feel that with YA audiobooks, I am able to finish a YA book.  See, as much as I love YA books, my first love is historical romance and […]

Re-reading Your Favorites, Yay or Nay?

Re-reading Your Favorites, Yay or Nay?

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week.   I love re-reading favorite books.  In fact, I love to read them multiple times.  Say, the Harry Potter series – I have probably read them five times which is not a lot in Potter fandom, right?  But I admit to reading my favorite Historical Romances over and over again.  It got to a point where I even had to buy the books again (thank you secondhand bookstores!) because the copies that I read were a. borrowed and never returned; […]

Friday Faves: Revisiting Audiobooks Again

Friday Faves: Revisiting Audiobooks Again

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. Last year, I started listening to Audiobooks but for whatever reason I just couldn’t focus and get into the story.  I had started listening to 1984 by George Orwell and The Princess and the Peer by Tracy Anne Warren but I just had to stop.  1984 became a DNR and The Princess and the Peer has been left on hold (I might read you again soon but we’ll see). Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago and I got […]

Friday Faves: Featuring the Unhappiness of a Bookworm

Friday Faves: Featuring the Unhappiness of a Bookworm

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. I said that this weekly feature would only be about faves but for this week, I digress.  This week, I would like to share my thoughts regarding authors (especially self-pubs) that frequently change the TITLE of their books once they are published.  Pet Peeve alert!  This just makes me furious.  Well, not really THAT furious, but still!  I really hate that I can’t keep track of their books because they change title, cover, AND EVEN SERIES! Here is a […]

Friday Faves:  Childhood Movies based on Books

Friday Faves: Childhood Movies based on Books

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. Are you a movie buff like me?  Well, to tell you the truth, before I was actively into reading , I was a movie buff.  In fact, I remember seeing The Sound of Music when I was four (I was always comparing myself to little Gretl who was five).  I loved watching movies.  In fact, I still do.  Despite being a reader, I still haven’t read books based on my favorite childhood movies.  Crazy, right?  Unfortunately, I might have […]

Friday Faves #3: I Heart the Los Angeles Public Library

Friday Faves #3: I Heart the Los Angeles Public Library

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. It was a happy HAPPY day for me when I found out that a Los Angeles Public Library branch is just two blocks away from my new place.  I was able to update my address, requested, and checked out a book that I will be using for work last Wednesday.  Okay, so I haven’t checked out a lot of “physical books” from the library in a while BUT I have been using the OVERDRIVE MEDIA App to borrow ebooks […]
