They will have to risk it all if they hope to escape Arobynn’s clutches—and if they fail, they’ll lose not just a chance at freedom, but their lives…

7 Lies Bookworms Had Told Themselves

Being a reader through the course of time and especially when on a reading streak, one had spoken out lies that your family and friends got their eyes rolling. Right? I have here seven lies that mostly we readers tried to convince ourselves but still ended up doing, the inevitability of it all.

Things listed in here are solely based from my personal experience and observations upon the bookish community and bookish friends.

1. The classic “just one more page”, “or chapter”.

Please, we all know how instances like this end up. It ends up pulling an all-nighter, a set of new eye-bags, and a finished book. Or in a worst case, a sob-fest suffering from all that feels may it be pure joy or rage.

And do, admit, it’s still something we try to avoid but cluelessly finds out when we are already fallen into the pit of excitement. And girl, was #worthit? Probably.

2. My To-Be-Read pile is completely “under control”.

Ha-ha-ha, but really though is it really?

Synopsis:

Martha Aguas kind of has it all–she’s an accountant who loves numbers, an accident-prone puppy that loves her, and the perfect wardrobe.

Yes, she wears a dress size 24, her bras don’t fit and she’s never had a boyfriend, but so what?

It becomes a big deal when her perfect cousin Regina announces her engagement to Enzo, the only boy she’s ever loved (he doesn’t know, so don’t tell him!) Suddenly Aguases from all corners of the globe are coming for the event, and the last thing Martha wants is to be asked why she still prefers her lattes with a waffle on the side.

Thank god for Max. Goofy, funny, dependable Max, who finds himself playing the fake boyfriend at the family festivities. But why does it feel like only one of them is pretending? Continue reading “If The Dress Fits & The Queen’s Game – Carla de Guzman #RomanceClass Reads”
