In efforts to try and catch up with all my review copies, I am joining ARC August! *cheers* For those who don’t know it yet, ARC August is a bookish challenge hosted by the lovely ladies of Read.Sleep.Repeat that aims to allow readers / bloggers to try and dominate their review copies (ARCs) within the month of August. And since I’m a little behind on my own pile, I knew I can’t let my chance of joining pass me by!
I’ve been out for almost an entire month, and at this point, I’m giving you permission to blame my being an adult. I spent the last few weeks adjusting to my working environment and I have to admit, I completely neglected every bookish account I have during that time. Bookstagram, Twitter, and this blog. I can’t even begin to explain how much I miss reading. I also long for the talks I have with my friends about nothing other than literature.
So anyway, I’m going to try and come back for just a few days and see if I can keep up with this. Today, I’m showing everyone how inefficient I am when it comes to reading books I bought in the past through The Intimidating TBR Book Tag!
Earlier this year, I signed up to be a part of this amazing thing Nori’s hosting, and it’s called the Book Blogger Creativity Project! Basically, it aims to let those who joined to get a chance to revamp their creativity in publishing book blog posts. During the time, I was in a massive blogging slump, and I just got out of my college internship, and no doubt, I needed a few activities to get my creative juices flowing! I was lucky to be a part of Team Violet together with Nori of Read Write Love 28, Pam of Pamela Nicole Writes, Aradhna of Folded Between The Pages of Books, Kim of Divergent Gryffindor, and Tiffany of The Bookish Thought. Also, I would love it if you guys could check out their blogs! They publish magnificent reviews!
Potterhead July is a festival hosted by my friend Aentee of Read At Midnight, and The Social Potato, that aims to promote all things Harry Potter, and also to highlight the release of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child on the 31st of July. For more details about this festival, please check out this master post that Aentee has put together!
Hi, everyone! I’m back and this time, I’m planning on staying for good. Last Friday marked the last day of my Hotel Internship at Fairmont and Raffles Hotel, Makati, and now, since I have more time in my hands, I’m proud to tell everyone that I’ll be as active as I was before, both here on my blog, and over at Instagram! (I can’t wait to get back to the bookish community!)
And today, I’ll be sharing with everyone a nostalgic book review! Long ago, I was tagged by Joey of Another Afterthought to do this tag! What I love about this is that it’s aim is to review a book you’ve read years ago and you’ll be doing it without any immediate knowledge of the book you’ll be reviewing. And, seeing that Jennifer Niven will be visiting the Philippines on tomorrow, I’ve decided to review once again one of my most favorite books of all time, All The Bright Places.
