At Holden Prep, dirty little secrets always have a way of coming to the surface.
Eleanor Ames has never been what she seems. Average high school student on the outside, but reformed con artist trying to break free of her past on the inside. When Eleanor receives startling news about someone from her previous criminal life, plans for a new operation coinciding with her school’s upcoming field trip quickly consume her.
But operations rarely go according to plan. And this is one her irresistible teen FBI agent boyfriend, Miles, would never approve of.
Now, more than just Ellie’s reputation is at stake. If she fails, it could be her life.

Help me plan my 'Stranger Things' viewing party!

Friday, September 29, 2017

stranger-things-season-2-poster-stranger-things-40560134-338-500

Probably the only reason I haven't cancelled my Netflix subscription yet is because of Stranger Things. (Let's be real though, I will never be able to quit Netflix even if I'm jobless like now because TV is LIFE.) I loved the first season and in fact, I watched it a total of THREE TIMES in a span of two weeks?? Something like that. It was just so compulsively watchable that I remember sleeping at 7AM just to finish it all. (Pro-tip: Do not start watching a series at midnight.) Admittedly, what initially hooked me was these kids playing Dungeons and Dragons because I play D&D myself. But each episode was more gripping than the previous and I was unstoppable as I queued an episode right after the other. IT IS JUST THAT GOOD. What made Stranger Things even more fun for me was watching it again with my friends, most of which also play D&D with me, and discussing it and loving it altogether.

So this October, I am planning on hosting a Stranger Things viewing party!!!!111 YAY!!!! *confetti* And now, you gotta help me with it!

National Book Store's #ReadOutLoudChallenge: Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

Sunday, June 4, 2017

Happy 75th Anniversary, National Book Store!

And to celebrate their anniversary, National Book Store is promoting reading and literacy in the country by the Read Out Loud Challenge! What is it, you ask?

With every 75 videos of people reading their favorite line/s from their favorite book/s posted on Instagram and/or Facebook, the National Book Store Foundation will help establish a library in public schools all over the Philippines!

Here I am doing the challenge and reading from Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan. I had this book tabbed with so many quotable passages that it was so hard to choose just one. And it's just so apt for June because it's Pride Month!

I hope you'll do the challenge as well and help National Book Store build libraries! My non-Filipino/Philippine-based readers, please do participate too! You'd be helping Filipino kids a lot!

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Spoiler alert: I didn't love this as much as everyone did so there's that. I love the message, I really do. I just realized that this is not the poetry style I gravitate to. No, that's wrong, I kind of gravitate to it because it's everywhere? But it's not what makes this heart sing and/or curl up in a ball.

Milk and Honey
Title: Milk and Honey
Author: Rupi Kaur
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Date of Publication: October 6, 2015

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

[redacted] + Small Ghost by Trista Mateer

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Today, I'm gonna post hopefully short word vomits on two of Trista Mateer's poetry collections. I've been finding it hard to read fiction recently so I've been reading poetry collections, short story anthologies, and essay collections. And I've been finding it hard to review anything at all so please go easy on me.

[redacted]
Title: [redacted]
Author: Trista Mateer
Date of Publication: February 18, 2017

Taking National Poetry Month’s poem-a-day challenge one step further, for her fourth collection, Trista Mateer has not only compiled a chapbook of her 2016 ‘30 for 30’ poems, but she has also chosen to include nearly everything else written in the month of April. This comes in the form of handwritten notes and poetry fragments, iPhone note poetry, tweets, Craigslist ads, and more. This mix of poetry and prose spans a single month and covers topics such as heartbreak, gender, sexuality, and forgiveness.
