BFR (6).png

Let’s start 2019 off with something worth celebrating: BOOK MAIL! During the last weeks of November up until mid December, I’ve received so many books from publishers and personal bookish purchases and I didn’t talk about it at the time because 1) I was so busy with work especially with dual payroll and Christmas party preparations at the office just around the corner, and 2) because I intentionally reserved it for a stacking the shelves post. Now, let’s get this post started! I have quite a few books to share with y’all!

Can’t buy me love…

Maddie’s not impulsive. She’s all about hard work and planning ahead. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. And then, to her astonishment—

She wins!

In a flash, Maddie’s life is unrecognizable. No more stressing about college scholarships. Suddenly, she’s talking about renting a yacht. And being in the spotlight at school is fun…until rumors start flying, and random people ask her for loans. Now Maddie isn’t sure who she can trust.

Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo. Seth doesn’t seem aware of Maddie’s big news. And, for some reason, she doesn’t want to tell him. But what will happen if he learns her secret?

BFR (1)

Hi, you guys! So just last week, from September 13 to 17, bibliophiles from all parts of the nation came together for the annual Manila International Book Fair at the SMX Convention Center, where book-selling exhibitors basically flaunted all their amazing books and other bookish merchandise perfect for all kinds of readers. The 5-day fair had everything that a typical reader can possibly hope for: discounted books, book launches, signing events, and guest appearances from bestselling authors. It was heaven, I tell you. Luckily, this time around, I had the time, budget, and energy to go to the fair on the FIRST and LAST day! Read on for a brief recap of my experience at the 2017 Manila International Book Fair!

Okay, so it’s no secret that ever since I got fully adjusted with work, that I’ve been quite inactive on here. Only being able to post fully drafted and scheduled posts, I’m really quite limited. With Sundays being the only free day I get to brainstorm and word vomit, I can’t help but neglect and leave Book Freak Revelations hanging every now and then. It’s with a prideful heart, though, that today, I get to finally share with everyone ALL THE BOOKS I got during the months of October and November! It’s been months since I last posted a haul post, so I might as well post one now, right?
