I only know Michelle Obama through what I see on TV and read on the internet. Only after reading her memoir that I learned more things about her.
After reading Becoming, I’m fully convinced that she really is an inspiring and powerful woman and as a mother. I loved the book. It gave me so many emotions; sometimes I’d catch myself swoon over their love story, cry as she recalls the school shootings, or laugh with some silly things they did. I was deeply moved by her. I love how she promotes hope and inspires so many people. She used her influence in so many positive ways. I admire and respect her a lot.
This is one of the books, I think, everyone should make time to read. I’ve been meaning to read it last year, but never had the chance. Read More »
This is my first time in joining a challenge with different prompts! It’s been fun, so far. While joining this challenge, I hope I could make my Goodreads Reading Challenge a success as well. My goal is to read 25 books this year. Read More »
Happy Guide: 6 Simple Lifestyle Changes for Health and Happiness is by Michael Kinnaird who lived for 13 years of life-destroying fatigue. He doesn’t want people to go through what he went through thus the birth of this book. He said “…so much suffering is still caused by ignorance of really simple truths about health and happiness.” and I couldn’t agree more. I found myself hooked with the book finishing it in one sitting.Read More »
Let me congratulate myself because I accomplished my Goodreads Reading Challenge 2017. 🎉 This year, I challenged myself to read 15 books and I was able to do it! With work I didn’t know I’ll have time to read. Haha!
I still have half a year to read more books and I think I’m on my 17th book now. Hooray! 💛Read More »
For the month of June, I was able to read these four novels;
1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – you may read my thoughts about this book here
2. Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks – A quick read with just over 200+ pages and one can possibly finish reading it in one sitting. Aside from the tragic love story, which is a typical N. S. novel, this book wants to pass on encouragement to people who undergo grief. Life must go on, as what they said, especially when you’re a parent and still have a small child that needs you.Read More »
Since I have rekindled my love for reading again this year, I figured I’d write a post to share my 15 book related confessions. There are some that I am too shy to admit. Haha! So, here we go and please let me know if you share the same as well! 😀
1. Judging a book by it’s cover, I’ll likely read a book with a cover that interests me.
2. I don’t like reading synopsis before reading a novel.
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.Read More »
I remember at the beginning of this year that I joined the reading challenge of Goodreads. (Though I don’t use my Goodreads account anymore to update my reading progress.) I pledged to read five books in one year. Yes, just five books. Haha! I have work so I thought I’d only have the time to read five books.
I’m happy to share that since April, I was able to read five novels already! 🙂 Read More »
Two months ago, I have read a book that gave me so many feels, My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I have first watched it in movie but a blogger friend here on WordPress suggested that I should read the book too because it has different ending and yah, I love the ending that’s in the book. Though the movie made me tear up as well as reading it too and this will always be one of my favorite movies/books. Read More »
In this digital age where everything’s just a click away, where you could follow your beauty or fashion icons in all of her social media, there’s a point where you get jealous of what they have because of what you see on the photos they post or how they get so beautiful in the magazine covers. You know that their photos for magazines or billboards undergo Photoshop, yet you still see them as the epitome of beauty. I’m guilty of that. I thought they have a perfect life and wished I was them. But no. They’re people like us too that also have their highs and lows, they also had horrible relationships and have been dumped. They also go through with everything that normal girl experiences. They too struggle with people trying to put them down and everyone who judges them.
With this book, they let us know their experiences and share what they went through. They both know that they’re not experts in life but with this book they can give us that extra boost to face challenges, to know that we are not alone and to also be open minded in women being supportive and learning from each other.
