Sounds Like Summer by Six de los Reyes

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Give yourself the gift of a great romance book this Valentine's Day! (I was supposed to publish this review yesterday but let's not dwell on my incompetence.)



Title: Sounds Like Summer
Author: Six de los Reyes
Publisher: Anvil Publishing Inc.

It’s not just a weekend for Lux Castelo. She has a plan, of course.

Phase One: Escape to the beach for a music festival.
Phase Two: Deal with what she can’t control.
Phase Three: Return to reality whole and ready.

Nowhere in that plan is Micah Jacinto, self-proclaimed adventurer and the kind of boy with his head stuck in the clouds and the moon inked on his arm—everything her rational sense tells her to stay away from. And yet Lux finds herself welcoming the distraction. As they spend the entire weekend together, Micah leads her to rediscover the lost pieces of herself amidst the excitement and the confusion of a raving mosh pit.

But all weekends come to an end and Lux needs to return to the dreaded reality she’s running away from. Does being brave enough to leave summer behind mean being brave enough to ask Micah to stay?

Purchase from National Book Store branches nationwide! (The book is only available as a paperback in the Philippines as of the moment but I will update this post once the ebook is out!)

Seeds Planted in Concrete by Bianca Sparacino

It's not surprising that it was Dawn who got me to buy this one and read it. Whatever poetry book she recommends, I get and read.

Through illustration and poetry, Seeds Planted in Concrete is Bianca Sparacino’s raw testament to the beauty that is found within the contrasts of life. By writing truthfully about the intricacies of both love and loss, Sparacino’s first collection of work is one that will speak to the very depths of those who read it, inspiring a will to love, and live. This collection is a manifesto of the journey every human being takes throughout their life; an assembly of words that celebrates the resilience of the human heart through stages of hurting, feeling, healing and loving.
