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

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 […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Characters

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Characters

It’s another week again and here’s my newest top 10!  Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & Bookish.  Here’s my top 10 in no particular order. I decided to divide them between my childhood faves and adult faves. Without these childhood faves, I’m sure I would never have been seduced into the wonderful world of reading. Ronald Weasley (Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling) Who doesn’t love Harry’s sidekick?  This carrot top is way better than Harry ever was.  Well, IMHO anyway.  Harry is okay but Ron is the one that really captured my interest.  I love how […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Romances

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Romances

This is my first entry for Top 10 Tuesday and this is a topic most dear to my heart since I heart romances.  I picked a favorite book from 10 of my favorite authors.  Although this does not exhaust my list (as there are many that are a 5 star for me), these are books that I have read at least 5 times and I still shed a few tears every time I read them.  The following are my top 10 in no particular order.     Lions & Lace by Meagan McKinney Lions & Lace is perhaps one of […]
