Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved that were Out of my Comfort Zone

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish I’m a creature of habit.  I admit that I tend to stick to genres that I am comfortable with, namely historical romance.  I never really thought that I would love YA books as much as I do now, but I am glad I picked the first YA book that I enjoyed so much about three years ago.  This weeks’ theme are books that I loved that were out of my comfort zone.  Sometimes, I do try to stray from the straight and narrow and pick up books based on their covers.  I know, […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Name My Future Children After

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Happy Tuesday, dear readers!  It’s that time of the week and I’m excited to share with you my pick for this weeks’ freebie entry! So.  As much as I want to be as bookish as I want to be and name my future children, I know Pierre would have his say.  But I think both of us would agree that a) we are never combining our names to make some weird name (because that is so common with Filipinos), and b) the name has to be unique because both of us do have […]

Hosted by Rachel @ Fiktshun,  Jaime @Two Chicks on Books, Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, &  Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader I hardly fangirl over book boyfriends so I was worried about listing a few of my favorite heroes.  While thinking about what to write for this post, I thought about showcasing it Facebook-style.  Unfortunately, I didn’t read a lot of 2015 releases so I only have 8 book boyfriends.  I am mostly including YA heroes, but I have added a few adult fiction heroes.  Now, on to my list!
