Forbidden by Jess Michaels | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   MY THOUGHTS Unrequited love is probably one of my favorite romance themes so I was very excited to read the first book in Jess Michaels’ The Wicked Woodley’s series. This did not disappoint. As I’ve said before, this is a story of unrequited love between the classes, which makes the story all the more exciting! Lady Audrey has been in love with her brother’s best friend, now steward […]

Bookish Discussions: Attacking a High School Required Read – Again

Bookish Discussions: Attacking a High School Required Read – Again

    So last year when I went on vacation home to the Philippines, I purchased two books written by the national hero, Jose Rizal.  I had promised myself to delve into these books again AND really “digest” it.  See, when this was required back in high school, we had to read it in the national language Tagalog and as most of my friends know, I absolutely suck at that language.  See, the Tagalog used in these books can be equated to Old English in that no one really talks like that today.  So even if I understand Tagalog, the […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Auto-Buy Authors

Top Ten Tuesday: Auto-Buy Authors

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish This post is related to my last week’s post about authors I’ve read the most books from.  Of course, they are also my auto-buy authors (in my preferred genre, of course).  I know not all of the books written by one author are my favorites and some, I have even hated, but these authors are my auto-buys even if one or two books have let me down. These are my top ten, in no particular order. Lisa Kleypas – One of my favorite authors is obviously on my auto-buy list, yeah?  Of course, […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’ve Read The Most Books From

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish I have been reading for quite a long time and I am not including Sweet Valley or Nancy Drew to the mix because I think I have read more books on those than any series/author ever. While compiling this list, I noticed that majority of these authors are also my one-click authors!  And yes, I also have a majority of their books!  I am only counting those authors that I have read more than 10 books. LISA KLEYPAS – She was one of the very first historical romance authors that I read and I […]

Bookish Discussions: Required Reading in School

Bookish Discussions: Required Reading in School

Back in school – well, middle school and high school, we didn’t get a lot of required reading, aside from the smattering of Filipiniana (books written by Filipinos).  Oh, did I mention that I did not grow up in the United States?  Well, now you know.  So back then, we weren’t required to read any novels but we did have a library day for an hour once a week (so sad, yeah?) where we can borrow a maximum of 2 books for a week.  You might say that it was the highlight of my week despite only having those old […]
