BLOG TOUR | Vampires of Portlandia by Jason Tanamor

According to the lore, the legend involved two brothers, both gods. One brother Gugurang, was pure, and the other, Asuang, was flawed. Growing up in the Philippines, I remember being more frightened than usual nearing November 1st and 2nd. These are the days when we mostly visit our dead relatives. I’ve always felt as if the pull of the supernatural is weirdly strong during these two days — I am also 150% scaredy-cat so, what do I know? Haha! I also remember news segments dedicated to ghosts, white ladies, and weird unworldly sightings. In addition to that, we live in […]

Blog Tour | Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez

One day, when a girl was born in Rosario, the earth would shake with anticipation for her future and not dread. It’s release day!!! Set in Argentina, Furia follows Camila, a girl who has big dreams of becoming a professional soccer player. With a budding-soccer-star for a brother, it’s easy to say that Camila’s talent runs in the family. However, her family’s expectations of her lead her to hide her love and talent for the sport. I found the pacing in the beginning a bit difficult to get into. However, once I got used to it, it flowed beautifully. Méndez […]

WIKATHON: August 2020 TBR

Wikathon TBR

I’ve first heard of Wikathon through Kath’s Instagram. I pretty much swore to myself I will join in, and for once I WILL FINISH IT. I’ve joined readathons before, but I have never finished one. I even joined two reading challenges for 2020 and , well, I’m probably not going to complete that either. But this one, this one I’m going to commit to. What is wikathon? Wikathon is a month long readathon dedicated to Filipino authors. If you don’t know, I am Filipino: born and raised (although I am currently residing outside the country). I remember my elementary school […]

WWW Wednesday No. 1

Book Spines: Hungry Hearts, Winter, The Goldfinch

WWW Wednesday is hosted by TAKING ON A WORLD OF WORDS where in we share our answers to these three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? I’m currently reading three books coming in to July: Hungry Hearts – which I’m enjoying so far. It’s a collection of stories centred on food on Hungry Hearts Row. Winter – Ah, the conclusion to The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I’m a little upset I haven’t finished the series already. The Goldfinch – I have heard great and bad things […]

Oh How I’ve Missed Lorelai

I remember randomly choosing Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham alongside Anna Kenrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody when I was looking for audiobooks for my commute to work. Our restaurant was closed for a week and I got to work on a different branch which was a half-an-hour drive each way. Talking As Fast As I Can is about how she got started on her career. From odd jobs, to side gigs, memorable auditions, and relationships formed on and off set. Since I’ve never watched Parenthood, the parts that hit me hard were when she talked about her […]
