Hey everyone! After almost two years of blogging here, I’d like to announce that I’m moving to the book blog below: The Backwards Bookshelf Please follow that blog instead! Running this blog has been a tiring but ultimately fulfilling journey. I’m looking forward to learning more about blogging and growing as a book blogger. Hope … More I’m Moving!!!
I first came across the #romanceclass hashtag on Twitter. At first – and I admit this to my eternal shame – I didn’t think much of it because I didn’t have a high opinion of indie authors. Then, two things coincided which got me to read #romanceclass books: 1) Shealea of That Bookshelf Bitch talked … More #romanceclass introduction!
I FINALLY WENT TO THE BEACH! Okay, so I went to the beach last February, when some coworkers and I went rafting in Real. But I didn’t really count that as a beach trip since I didn’t do any of the usual things I like doing at a beach: swimming, sunbathing, and reading on the … More Liwliwa Kind of Chill
Like every bookworm in the country, I was stoked af to hear that Big Bad Wolf, the insanely low-priced, 24-hour book fair, was coming to the Philippines! I’d first encountered Big Bad Wolf when a friend of mine went to Kuala Lumpur in 2016 for a convention and managed to score some cheap art books. … More The Big Bad Wolf is in the Philippines!
It started last Monday at work, while I was making my usual morning cup of coffee. I overheard one of the secretaries chatting with a friend of mine from HR. They were talking about filling up the slots of an organized white water rafting trip so that everyone on the van knew each other. My … More By the River Tignoan I Sat Down and Was Shookt

I’ve reviewed a Neil Gaiman book before (read my review of Anansi Boys here) but I have to say, American Gods is my absolute favorite. … More Currently Watching + Kate’s Books: American Gods

Early on the last day of the year, I checked my CRS account, praying all my professors had uploaded my grades and I could enjoy the New Year weekend instead of worrying. (UP students, ya feel me?) Lo and behold, they had! And … More The Working Student Diaries: Pt. 1 – The Battle Plan
The state of my closets (yes, that’s plural) has become something of a joke amongst my friends. There’s always talk of any of them – all different genders, all different body types – being able to waltz into my bedroom and come out with an outfit that they like which will suit the situation at … More A Millennial’s Journey to a Capsule Wardrobe
Another year has come and gone. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Seems like just yesterday I was browsing bookstores for a 2017 planner (which I wrote about here!) and now here we are again, about to embark on the year 2018. 2017 was a year of big changes for me. When I look back at … More Reflections on 2017
I’m a huge fan of horror movies. Anyone who knows me even remotely is aware of my love for the genre. In fact, I’ve written a couple of blog posts about my favorite horror movies and TV shows (read them here and here), and this is certainly not the first horror/suspense/thriller novel I’ve reviewed (check … More Kate’s Books: Final Girls
