#30DayBookChallenge Day 1: Best book you’ve read last year

30-Day Book Challenge Day 1: Best book you’ve read last year


Boy, I really tried to limit this to a book or two, but I just can’t left out the others! 2013 is such an amazing #reading year because of these awesome books!

  • Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog by Edgar Calabia Samar (@ecsamar)
    This book is both difficult and beautiful. I simply loved the prose of the novel no matter how dizzying it is! The unconventional, nonlinear story plot also added an amazing touch in the story. I fell in love with the fantastic characters (humans or not) too.
  • Life of Pi by Yann Martel
    This book started by claiming that reading this will make you believe in God. Although I don’t think it really came to that, the novel was still exquisite. I felt that I was immersed in the story and Pi’s whole ordeal as I was reading it. The plot twist also made a great impact on me, and I kept on thinking of it even weeks after I’ve finished the book.
  • The Fault in Our Stars by JohnGreen (@johngreenwritesbooks)
    Who wouldn’t love this John Green’s best-selling novel? I fell in love with Hazel and Gus’s story: slowly, then all at once. Finished the book within a day and I just had to reread it immediately after because it was so excellent. And yup, cried buckets of tears because of it. Damn cancer.
  • It’s A Mens World by Bebang Siy
    No it’s not a typo. It’s really a world of “mens”. A collection of essays, this book tackles the life of Miss Bebang as she grows up with her family, her struggles and challenges told in a humorous way. I could really relate with this book as I was reading this. I even made my sister and niece read it! I highly recommend this to everyone.

The Pinoy books were actually signed copies. I rated all of them with 5 stars. Go read them now, if you still haven’t. You won’t regret it!


#30DayBookChallenge: Challenge Accepted!

I know it’s not the start of the month yet, but I would be doing this 30-day Book Challenge.


I’ve been actually wanting to do this meme for quite a time now, so I’m pretty excited to start this. I’m primarily hosting the book challenge at my Instagram account; but I would also be cross-posting my entries here in my book blog since it’s a book-related challenge, and also so that I could expound it a little bit more (I tend to write a lot even in my IG captions). It’s also a great way for me to post more in this blog, since I can’t write a lot of reviews lately.

When I scanned the challenge, there were some days that I think I would be posting multiple books for that particular entry simply because I have a lot of answers for the meme. Or maybe I might even repeat the books that I posted for different days (but I’d try not to). So anyway, I’m really excited for this. I hope I could justify this challenge haha!

2014 Reading Bingo Challenge

Earlier this year I was really excited to start doing this. Then, because I became more and more busy with school, I began to forgot that I “signed up” for this challenge. With the creation of my book blog, I hope I could continue doing this and accomplish the bingo challenges.

By the way, I think I’ve already ticked off some of the updates here. I’ll post updates soon! 🙂

So at the beginning of the year (I think that was during the first week of 2014), I saw this shared post about a bingo reading challenge. It is from Randomhouse, and the idea is this (according to the website) is: “You can approach the Reading Bingo card however you like: beginners, start by getting one line; if you’re more advanced, try the whole outside box on the card; experts, fill in the whole card!”

To add spice to the challenge, I would also be doing their YA Bingo Reading Challenge. Yay! Not very much into YA because I pretty much have eclectic reading taste, but I do love reading some young adult books.

I’m actually planning of doing a bingo blackout (meaning all boxes would be filled) for this, but I’m still not sure. I’m aiming to read 45 books for my Goodreads reading challenge this year…
