10 Book QuotesΒ 

Hello guys! Happy weekend!

Let me congratulate myself because I accomplished my Goodreads Reading Challenge 2017. πŸŽ‰ 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! πŸ’›Read More »

Reading Update June 2016

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 »

My Favorite First Sentences

Hello! πŸ™‚

I’ll be doing My Favorite First Sentences in a book. Though, mine would be the ebook version since I all have these novels in that format.

Sometime last March, I joined a Spring Fling Giveaway featuring books from different authors and I’m one of the winners!! Since yesterday, I’ve been receiving emails from the authors who collaborated to make the giveaway a success. I received a total of 30+ ebooks! I don’t know if I’ll still receive an email tomorrow from the authors or that’s already all.

I checked every book and the following are my picks. πŸ™‚
