Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Sometimes, You Just Need a Good Cry

Let’s talk about anything bookish! This is a different discussion post because it is a little bit personal. Well, not in a personal PERSONAL, if you know what I mean, but something that I want to share with everyone. I am an extremely emotional reader. And really, I tear up at minor things – usually meet-cutes! hahaha But seriously, though. Sometimes, I DO search out emotional reads purposely so I can ugly cry. I have no idea why I do that, but I just do! I am an extremely emotional reader and a mood reader to boot, so both are a crazy combo! In fact, Mr. He […]

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Pag-Ibig: A Filipino-American Romance Panel

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   Happy Monday, Wormies! I finally survived the first romance panel that I moderated! Yes, there was a lot of fangirling involved! A few months ago, I was asked by these amazing authors: Mia Hopkins, Maida Malby, Tif Marcelo, and Sarah Smith to moderate their panel at The Ripped Bodice. It was an honor to moderate this panel because all these ladies are Filipino-American authors writing about characters of color and representing the Filipino, and Filipino-American culture!   We had an amazing time talking about books, romance and Filipino & Filipino American representation in literature. I love that everyone […]

Note the sarcasm. A lot of things happened IRL to me in the month of June. While I won’t discuss the particulars, I just want to say that life is extremely unpredictable. I didn’t read […]

Badly Explain Your Favorite Books

Badly Explain Your Favorite Books

Let’s talk about anything bookish!   How do you explain your favorite books to someone who hasn’t read them yet? Do you go into great detail about the plot, the characters the conflict? Or you just tell them that the book is good and to read the blurb? Well, someone on my online book club OSRBC (Old School Romance Book Club) asked everyone to badly explain their favorite books. I joined in and I had so much fun writing them. Which brings me to the topic of this blog post. I will be sharing 10 of my favorite books and will badly […]
