10 books on my Fall 2020 TBR

Amidst the chaos and division happening, there is one thing I think we all can agree in. This year is challenging, physically, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically, and all the -ly’s I missed to write here. As I try to look at the bright sides of life (to keep me sane as I near my 7th monthContinue reading “10 books on my Fall 2020 TBR”

top 10 book covers i love (with quotes!)

Are you guilty of judging the book by its cover? I have to admit sometimes I do that! I asked because the The Artsy Reader’s Top Ten Tuesday today is a Cover Freebie (choose your own topic, centered on book covers or cover art). Instead of just sharing the 10 covers I adore the most, all ofContinue reading “top 10 book covers i love (with quotes!)”

Questions for my favorite authors

Among the several authors I admire, I have two who have never failed to stir something inside me whenever I read their work. They are Mitch Albom, author of Tuesdays with Morrie, and Maya Angelou, the poetess and writer behind I Know Why the Caged Birds Sings.

10 books as Netflix shows or movies

So the title may make you think that I am a fan of novel-turned-movies or series but, a quick disclaimer, I am not. When I was younger, I used to be a fan of Nicholas Sparks and I’ve watched all his novels’ adaptations and not a single one is better than the book version. ButContinue reading “10 books as Netflix shows or movies”

10 books i loved but never reviewed

After a quick check on my Top Ten Tuesday tab, I’ve figured my last entry was June 7, 2016 (four years ago!!!) where I shared the 10 reasons why I love reading. I cannot believe that it has been that long ago as I still vividly have the joyful memory of revisiting the books I’veContinue reading “10 books i loved but never reviewed”

5 Lines I Love: Sesher Kobita by Rabindranath Tagore

Sesher Kobita, The Last Poem  by Rabindranath Tagore, Anindita Mukhopadhyay (translated) — While my reading habit has remained quite erratic because of my job’s schedule, I am still able to sneak some time to read and finish some good books (although I am so far from the 24 books in 2019 I set for myself in Goodreads!Continue reading “5 Lines I Love: Sesher Kobita by Rabindranath Tagore”

The Entertainer Book Tag

(Note: This tag is stolen from my dearie Jade. I am guilty beyond reasonable doubt; I am willing to pay the price of this crime. ^___^ ) It’s a Monday morning and my work email is (surprisingly) quiet and empty. Perhaps like a little street in a province at 12:30 AM. So I decided toContinue reading “The Entertainer Book Tag”
