Hubby Reads Divergent by Veronica Roth

Hubby Reads Divergent by Veronica Roth

Hubby Reads is a feature where I ask my hubby to share his thoughts on the books that I made him read. Hubby and I have very different preferences when it comes to reading.  While I gravitate to the romance genre, he gravitates towards John Grisham, Robert Ludlum, Dean Koontz and the like.  However, there are times where I force make encourage him to read books of my choosing.  Well, he simply humors me and despite not liking the genre, he reads them anyway.  LOL I’m sure he draws the line to reading books from my favorite genre historical romance […]

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.

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.

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.

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 […]
