Book Reads: The Shack (William P. Young)

I first heard of "The Shack" during my vacation at the province during Holy Week this year. One of my cousins was recommending we watch this movie to be aired on local TV. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to join them. Fast forward to a few weeks and I was back at work, I randomly mentioned… Continue reading Book Reads: The Shack (William P. Young)

Book Reads: The Light Between Worlds (Laura Weymouth)

I have always been enthralled by the Chronicles of Narnia and I'm pretty sure a lot of people are, too. The book series, written by C.S. Lewis, has been one of the most loved children's books in the world (although I would argue that it's target audience is not exclusive). And so after all the… Continue reading Book Reads: The Light Between Worlds (Laura Weymouth)

Book Reads: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (by JK Rowling)

I guess I'll have to say that this is the book where the world just grew a bit darker for Harry Potter. He is now a teenager, and a lot of emotional outbursts are at play. He has a lot of internal conflict going on - he shouts at his best friends and just wants… Continue reading Book Reads: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (by JK Rowling)

Book Reads: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (by JK Rowling)

Here continues my adventures as I delve again into the enchanting world of Harry Potter.

Book Reads: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (by JK Rowling) [☝]

I have entered the wizarding world again recently (started from book 1 again, and as of writing I am at book 4), and boy what an adventure it has been! It still is a joy reading the story of Harry Potter. I've attempted to do a reread back in 2013 although I stopped, but out of… Continue reading Book Reads: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (by JK Rowling) [☝]

Coffee Shop Hunting Adventures

I've mentioned on the blog that I did some bulk book buying during the last Manila International Book Fair. I got really inspired to go back to basics and read actual physical books. However, I know I suck at consistently reading my books. And so I thought of a method that would be a win-win… Continue reading Coffee Shop Hunting Adventures

Book Reads: Brida (Paulo Coelho)

I've had this book for sometime, but because of one thing and another, I wasn't able to continue reading it. Well fortunately in the recent Holy Week, I had a 7-day vacation (which I haven't had for the longest time). I spent half the week at our province (Pangasinan). That's where I had the time… Continue reading Book Reads: Brida (Paulo Coelho)

Book Reads: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (Marie Kondo)

This is one of the books that I bought from the recently concluded Manila International Book Fair. I've only known about this book through the Reddit community - it's one of the most top recommended "books to read before you die". I got interested so I added this title to my to-read shelf on my… Continue reading Book Reads: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (Marie Kondo)

Book Hauling @ #MIBF2017

I didn't really plan going to this fair. I was feeling a bit under the weather for the past weeks so I thought I'd need to do something new aside from the work-home-work-home routine that I have during the weekdays. In addition to that, my colleagues were urging me to go out more to meet… Continue reading Book Hauling @ #MIBF2017

Book Stop Project: Give A Book, Get A Book

I love books. Before the age of the internet, these were my escapes from reality. Anyone who has read Harry Potter or The Chronicles of Narnia knows what great adventures readers would experience from reading such stories.I prefer reading physical books versus the electronic ones. There's something captivating about turning the leaves of a book… Continue reading Book Stop Project: Give A Book, Get A Book
