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 reasonย I just couldn’t focus and get into the story. ย 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. ย 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. ย 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. ย Pet Peeve alert! ย This just makes me furious. ย Well, not really THAT furious, but still! ย 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? ย Well, to tell you the truth, before I was actively into reading , I was a movie buff. ย In fact, I remember seeing The Sound of Music when I was four (I was always comparing myself to little Gretl who was five). ย I loved watching movies. ย In fact, I still do. ย Despite being a reader, I still haven’t read books based on my favorite childhood movies. ย Crazy, right? ย 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. ย I was able to update my address, requested, and checked out a book that I will be using for work last Wednesday. ย 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 […]

Friday Faves: A New One-Click Author

Friday Faves: A New One-Click Author

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. Happy Friday everyone! This week, I am sharing my new one click authorย Sarah MacLean. I finished the three books in The Rule of Scoundrels series and have started on the third book in her debut series Love by Numbers. ย I just barely started reading Eleven Scoundrels to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart and I love the sparks flying between the H and h! ย Another thing I love about Sarah MacLean is the unexpected twist that she added in […]

Friday Faves: For the Love of Young-Adult Books

Friday Faves: For the Love of Young-Adult Books

Friday Faves is a feature where I share whatever bookish thing I saw or share books I read during the week. I have been in a Young-Adult kick for the last couple of weeks and I have been picking up more YA books than usual. ย Good thing, too because I found a little gem hidden in my TBR pile since last year. ย This little book is calledย These Broken Starsย by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. ย What an amazing read! ย More about this when I finally get the time to review the book. ย And don’t you just love the cover?

Big Brother is Watching

Big Brother is Watching

No. ย I am not talking about the reality show Big Brother.ย  I am talking about the awesome book 1984 by George Orwell! ย This is my first foray into audiobook “reading” and I must say that I am hooked! ย I am 2 chapters deep into this awesome book and I am loving it! ย So yeah, noob here but hey, I expected not to like listening to an audiobook! ย Plus, it helps pass time while stuck in traffic! ย And LA traffic is the worst at around 5-ish in the PM. Here’s my favorite line so far: โ€œHe who controls the past controls […]
