Here are Kaya’s 11 Questions:

    1. Dark, milk, or white chocolate? 

All of the above? I am a chocolate candy type of person than ice cream. I am up for all of these depending on the mood or availability.

    2.  What’s the prettiest book you own? 

I feel so attacked by this question. Stuck in a dilemma of “I can’t pick from my shelves or I can’t answer because I do not own it yet”.

To answer quickly my copies of The Wrath and The Dawn & The Rose and The Dagger recently arrived and they are freaking gorgeous. I now name them my prettiest book I own.

In case you’re wondering this version: Continue reading “Liebster Award”

A Library Book

The closest thing I got from a library is a library copy my aunt got me from Auckland. Technically ex-copy now, it was sold there and got me NOS4A by Jon Hill and Stronger Than You Know by Jolene Perry.

Both are copies were like at NZ $1.00 it was a steal. And both are still unread I’m afraid.

Book Tag | Unforgettable Bookish Memories

I spotted this intriguing tag at Aurora Librialis‘. And yes, go stop by there too. Check that blog out!


I was a late bloomer when it comes to reading. I even thought of not overcoming it. I even cried about it. My mom bought lots of book for me to read. That kind of books where words are like one or two syllables in it, you know for starters.

This was my first book. The first I’ve ever read. And I kept it. May it hard to believe, it is still with me. And it is called See Oh, See.

Leigh Bardugo

A queen, I stan.

Book that connected you with your best friend.

My great gods and goddesses, I formed a deeper friendship with my best friend through Percy Jackson Books by Rick Riordan! We were such a goof then. I think we still are. Whenever I see her or our other friends we kind of still call ourselves the character names from that series. And still, argue over who’s who.

Book Tag | Bookish Academy Awards

Best Actor (Best Male Protagonist)

I cannot think of anyone but Nikolai Lantsov from Siege and Storm right now, this guy never left my head since I knew him. Not necessarily the protgonist-protagonist but I just do like him… so, starting the first award drawn from a bias choice.

Siege and Storm (Grisha Verse, #2)

Book Tag | Sims

Found this tag from Ashley at The Infinite Library.

The Original Sims – the Best Author Debut

The Light in the Wound (The Light in the Wound, #1)

I say this was the best author debut;

An enthralling read about Isabel’s beginning that surely had us all in an emotional turmoil. As the story gets deeper it gets all sorts of seriousness or maturity… Tears had been streaming down my cheeks. A heartfelt story of Isabel’s childhood, teenage years and into adulthood. Finding your first love with the perception of being with them forever and learning to love another. Family issues, being away from her siblings, her parents and the pressure. All of the emotions were raw, I had experienced pain, love, and joy from Isabel as if I was her. Christine Brae did great!

The Grim Reaper – Saddest Character Death

Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2)

Someone from Glass Sword. Victoria Aveyard wrecked me with that one. I really really liked this character from the first book, Red Queen and Continue reading “Book Tag | Sims”

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!

Book Tag | Courtship

Welcome back to my I-can’t-resist-not-doing-this-book-tag! I saw this book tag from The Hufflepuff Nerdette

Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover

When I was in high-school I often do this. I see a book I don’t even check what it is about.  I just, “oh, it’s YA and SOOOO PRETTY.”

And the first book I did this was Libba Bray’s The Diviners

It was thick, it was pretty, must buy! It turned out so good! I was just sad that it took years and years for the second one to come out and that the covers were changed. Bummer.

I don’t do this now. I research the book I buy now.

Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary

Looking for Alaska by John Green. The first book I’ve read from him and among the four I’ve read. THIS lands Absolute Fav. Continue reading “Book Tag | Courtship”
