Let’s Talk Bookish: What Makes a Book YA?

Hello guys! This is my first Let’s Talk Bookish post and I really enjoyed writing this post. Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by me @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where we discuss certain topics, share our opinions, and spread the love by visiting each other’s posts. This week’s topic is “What Makes A Book YA?”. I have been reading YA since I was around 13 and I just didn’t stop. There’s just something about the genre that keeps me coming back. However, the line between YA and other genres are blurry. What exactly is the difference between Young […]

Monthly Recap: June 2020

Hello everyone! How was June for you? June was really a stressful yet productive month for me. There was a lot of work that needed to be done but I think I’m finally done! The list of graduates is not posted yet so there’s still uncertainty but I feel like I’m really close to being an official Doctor of Medicine. I’m really looking forward to what July would bring and I only hope for good things to come. I hope that we finally get to defeat Covid-19. In order to do that, let’s all stay home and avoid unnecessarily going […]

WWW Wednesdays: July 1, 2020

Hello guys! How are you? WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. This weekly meme answers three questions namely: What are you currently reading? What did you finish reading recently? What do you think you’ll read next? What am I currently reading? I’m reading The Map of Salt and Stars for the Popsugar Reading Challenge Prompt “book by a transgender or non binary author”. I’ve only read about 25% of the book and I can already tell that this is a good read. The events in this book saddens me so I keep putting […]

Anticipated July 2020 Book Releases

Hello guys! How has June been for you? My June is eventful as I had a lot of work that needed to be done as I’ve just graduated from Medicine. I still can’t believe it but I am now a Doctor of Medicine! My journey is still not done and I have yet to face many more struggles but for now, my July will hopefully be calmer. I won’t come back to duty until probably this August so my July will be most likely purely a break. So, I am excited about these July 2020 Book Releases! Girl, Serpent, Thornby […]

Again Again

I read Again Again because I was utterly impressed with E. Lockhart’s previous work – We Were Liars. I mean that book’s plot twist just blew me away. Up until this day, I feel like I was betrayed by the book. So, I started reading Again Again with huge expectations. What I Liked What I liked from the book is something common with other young adult books I’ve liked – it was not afraid to be real. A lot of young adult books deal with an issue but not all really shows the ugliness of everything. In this book, we […]

Lonesome Dove

I started reading Lonesome Dove for the prompt “A western” for the Popsugar Reading Challenge 2020. I started reading this book around three weeks ago. Lonesome Dove has a slow pace that I found myself reading other books simultaneously as this book. As I’ve mentioned, Lonesome Dove has a slow pace. There were times when I was bored especially in the initial chapters that I actually considered not reading further. After finishing the book, I have to say that I do not regret reading this book. I would like to really commend the world building in this book. From the […]

How Did They Get Away With Murder? : Thoughts on the How to Get Away With Murder Ending

Hello guys! How have you been? I’ve just binge-watched the series finale of How to Get Away With Murder and I just wanted to share my thoughts with you! Needless to say, do not read this post if you haven’t watched the ending yet as SPOILERS ARE AHEAD! I haven’t really been fully satisfied with any show’s ending lately. The last ending that I remember being 1oo% happy with is F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and that was a long long long time ago. The ending of HTGAWM is decent enough but I’m not 100% happy with it either. I have watched the show […]

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

Characters with shady pasts, the perfect bride and groom, an isolated island? The Guest List sounds like a great whodunnit story? At first, I expected the murder to happen in the first few chapters and then the following chapters would be the characters looking for clues and unveiling the killer. I was kind of confused when that did not happen. Instead, The Guest List starts off with the day before the wedding (and the murder). Majority of the chapters are actually the background stories of the different characters. The murder doesn’t actually happen until around 60% of the book. And […]

The Who Am I? Book Tag: Getting to Know Me Through Books

Hello guys! How are you? I was tagged by Eternity Books for this book tag and I really really enjoyed this book tag. So, thank you so much for tagging me! I just have to warn you that this post has been extremely more personal than I initially intended. Still, I really have so much fun writing this post so here goes: If your life were a book genre, what would it be? I honestly feel like my life has been a long young adult coming-of-age kind of story. Back in high school, I was like the anti-villain but in […]

Hello guys! The previous week was just crazy for me. Tons of work has piled up and I had little time to read and blog. Hopefully, the coming week will be better for me.
