Top Ten Tuesday: My Bookish Bucket List

Top Ten Tuesday: My Bookish Bucket List

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish This week, the Top Ten Tuesday topic is out BOOKISH BUCKET LIST.  I actually did a similar list for the TTT Rewind but this one is a little bit different.  I added a few and took out a few with the ultimate goal of fulfilling these by the end of the year 2014. I finished reading and reviewing 53 books last year with a goal of 60 (see Year in [Book] Review).  This year, I am still keeping it at 60 and I will try reviewing all the books that I read but […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish   The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – I still haven’t read this book (and started the series).  My hubby already read the trilogy and told me he was disappointed, which may be the reason why I have been holding off reading it. Evertrue by Brodi Ashton – I need to borrow it from the library.  This series has been a hit and miss and despite loving the second book Everbound, I am hesitant to buy this one. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare – I really want to read this book (and series, […]

Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Historical Romance Books

Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Historical Romance Books

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish Historical Romance is my favorite genre.  In fact, it is THE preferred genre when I want to get away from real life.  There is just something about the time that really captures my imagination.  Here are my top 10 favorites so far. Secret Ways by Kat Martin was the first book that I ever read that got me into Historical Romances.  Before that, I was reading a lot of Harlequin Historicals and although they were good, Secret Ways opened a whole new world for me. The Secrets of Mia Danvers was the first […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Authors I’ve Never Read

Top Ten Tuesday: Popular Authors I’ve Never Read

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish There are a lot of authors that I haven’t read but for this Top Ten Tuesday list, I am picking Top Ten Popular Authors that I WANT to read but have NEVER read. Suzanne Collins I picked Suzanne as the number 1 author that I have yet to read.  In fact, all the books in THE HUNGER GAMES series are on my physical bookshelf right now waiting to be read.  My hubby has already read the trilogy so I guess, there is no excuse for me not to have read it.  Right? J.R.R. […]

Top Ten Tuesday Rewind: Bookish Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday Rewind: Bookish Resolutions

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish I decided to pick the Top Ten Bookish Resolutions for the rewind topic today.  So far, I haven’t made a dent with this list… figures 🙂 Reach my reading goal of 60 books.  Last year, I was 7 books shy of making my goal.  All of those books were on my currently reading list and I loathe the fact that I wasn’t able to read anything in December.  Check out my 2013 year in [Book] Review. Read books written by Filipino authors.  I am Filipino and I am personally disappointed by myself because […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish I ❤ being a reader and I have been reading since I was child.  As a matter of fact, I was told that I would not sleep if no one would read me a bedtime story.  I still don’t sleep without reading at least a few pages. I ❤ Reading because… I get to travel to the moon and back.  Yes, I have been to different places, times, and even other planets just because of reading.  My latest trip was aboard the Icarus in These Broken Stars. I get to meet different characters.  Oh, and even interact […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Things that make being a Book Blogger Easier

Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish   I’m back after a short absence of not joining this meme despite the awesome topics the past few weeks because I had, for lack of a better word, exhausted.  Oh, I still read and did an occasional review but not as much as I would have liked.  Anyway, this week we are talking about Things that make being a book blogger easier. I’ve been blogging since 2007, with a few off years in between, and my blogs range from personal to niche based like photography, digital scrapbooking, and a book review blog.  Through […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I HAD to Buy But Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I HAD to Buy But Still Haven’t Read

We all have those impulse-buy moments and have been guilty of hoarding books like it’s the end of the world or something and to be honest, I am one of those.  This weeks’ TTT is something close to my heart as I am a notorious impulse-buyer and some of the books end up gathering digital dust in my Nook. Here are my top 10:   Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl The series was on sale the week of the movie release for $2.99 and I went ahead and bought the first book.  But naturally, I haven’t read […]
