Have you ever wondered why some of your bookworm friends have ton of ebooks in their Kindle? I have a friend with over two thousand books on her ereader. What?! When she finishes one book, she just starts another without even having to shop for a book in the Kindle store.
I did a little research to figure out the best places to get free Kindle books and I discovered it’s actually pretty easy to load up your Kindle with thousand of free ebooks. It might take some time, but it’s easy.
A few days ago I received my Whimsify box for July and I adore every single item the team included in the box. If you didn’t know, Whimsify Box is a subscription box for lovers of YA Fantasy books.
The theme for July was “SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES”. The July box is all about the mystery and dark magic of the carnival and has SIX items perfect for fans of Caraval, The Night Circus, and Menagerie. The book for July is a dark YA fantasy set in a traveling carnival filled with unusual illusions and dangerous secrets.
July 2017 was a good month for me as I’ve read 7 books in total:
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – I SHOULD’VE READ THIS BOOK SOONER. I was bored with the first half of the book but things really get pretty exciting at the second half. Rating: ★★★★
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas – Since I was really intrigue with the second half of the first book, I decided to jump right next to the second book and it didn’t disappoint. Rating: ★★★★

Hello amazing bookworms! 🙂
It’s been awhile since I last posted. It was last year when I told you guys that I would be active here again but then school ate me alive, but thank God I survived. Last May 28 2017, I graduated from college and ever since then I’m active on my bookstagram and this time, I wanted to go back and be active with blogging again. This time, I promise I would be active every month, I need too, right? Haha. Since I would be back, I need to post weekly and because of that I decided to have SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY.

He has a type: all his victims look the same.

On its fringes, a man watches one star separate from the masses and fall. What survives the crash will unveil a secret centuries long hidden.
Molly hasn’t slept well since the night of her twenty-fourth birthday. Being struck by lightning might have something to do with it, but then again, her chicken did look a little undercooked at dinner. Whatever the culprit, her life quickly catapults from mundane to insane as, night after night, Molly is transported through her once dreamless sleep to a mysterious land illuminated by shooting stars.

Author: Mark Jaffe
Can you honestly say, “I’m a happy person”?
Think about it – you’ve worked hard, you’ve had great results, you have people that love you, you’re a good person. Why does it still feel like something is missing?
What would it be like to just be happy and feel good every day?
“Happyness” is a new way to feel, a new way to live. A state of being that lasts and endures.
Hello, Hello! It’s been months since I last posted and opened this blog, the past few months has been crazy for me with all life realities (balancing academics, organizations, social life and my newly opened food business), but the good news is I am definitely back.
September is absolutely the most awaited month for us, Filipino Bookworms and you might be asking yourself now why? Well, Manila International Book Fair or MIBF is a long week book fair with all different publishing companies and bookstores that offers discounts on books plus there’s also a few local and international book signings on the said event that is usually held every September. This event helps us save a lot of bucks but at the same time makes our wallet cries because in this moment we becomes a book hoarders, but then no regrets here.
