Things I’ve Learned from Months of Blogging

This blog was originally created in December 2016, tried and failed in September 2017, now back in March 2018… It sure was a long journey to be where I am now. Here’s a quick list of things I’ve learned from a period of three (3) months of continuous blogging. (Yay!)

1. No Man is an Island.

As a reader, I am pretty sure you have made bookish friends already. And as you start up with the blog, it’s inevitable not to make more friends in the bookish community. You will never be alone. Thus far a community that had been so welcoming.

Book Tag | This or That!

Another part of my I-couldn’t-resist-not-doing- this-book-tag-series, where I voluntarily did yet another tag! This one I saw from The Calico Books. Give her blog a visit as well!

Audio Book or Text Book

I have finished two audiobooks in my entire petty existence. I enjoyed it, but I prefer reading textbooks feeling that wispy pages in between my fingers. Especially when I am reading revelations from a book. I got to pause, exhale then try to read again the paragraphs of it. I feel like I process the feels in this manner enhanced than in audiobooks. Plus, book smell!

What I liked about it:

  • diversity of characters
  • a refreshing character interest of focus plot on
  • there was no romance in it
  • love the approach of narration

Second Wave Summer by Six De Los Reyes, Tara Frejas Jay E. Tria

Second Wave Summer

It has themes of:

  • summer festivals
  • dealing with own happiness
  • new set of book boyfriend feels
  • chemistry/cross-over of characters
  • it’ll give you bagnet and champorado cravings
