Review: Duplicity by N.K. Tarver

I'll have to be honest here and say that this is a book you'll need to suspend a great amount of disbelief to take seriously. Not that I don't find cyberthrillers beyond the realm of feasibility! Of course they are and I find them extraordinarily fascinating in fact. One of the new battlegrounds we have today is the virtual space, as we find ourselves depending on technology at an exponential rate - from information to vital data to bank accounts and many more. Identity thefts happen, bank … Read More...

Gushings and Ravings #6: Sally’s Baking Addiction (and mine)

I have a confession. I’ve been reading less. Less than a voracious reader that is. I think occasional readers would still consider my reading speed pretty fast. I’ve also been spending less on books. Why? Well, because of that title. I’ve been getting into baking lately, and it’s another expensive hobby I tell you. But […]

Review: Stupid Boy by Cindy Miles

Is that it? Was the first thought that immediately popped into my head after finishing this book. What I thought after accepting that it was, indeed, the end of the book. The elements of this book wasn’t bad. But that was all it was, it wasn’t bad. The story was simple. Harper had a very difficult […]

Speed Views #4: Where Have My Beloved Contemporaries Gone?

It’s now mid-March and I’ve read a couple of contemporary books, but none of them have been a five-star read and it’s making me sad. I don’t even know how this is happening. I even read ones that I’ve been anticipating. But no dice. The contemporary books I’ve read these past few weeks were all […]

Musings: I Like Used Books

Ever since I started blogging, I’ve seen a lot of book bloggers or readers who are so careful with their books. You won’t see a scratch or dent on their book. You won’t see anything written in their books. Their books are always in pristine condition. Some even wrap their books with plastic before putting […]

Amir’s (Late) Birthday Giveaway!

So last week (March 5th) was my dirty 32! Woohoo! Sadly, I had to work the day of…so no wild parties for me! I did have wonderful birthday dinners with friends, classmates, and awesome relatives though so that was fun and enough for me. Everyone was so sweet on Twitter too, thanks for all the wonderful […]

Everything That Makes You Moriah McStay

Review: Everything That Makes You by Moriah McStay

It’s quite difficult to convey what I felt for this book. I started off with a like-hate relationship, and by the last half, I was loving it. Told in alternating universes, it was like reading two totally different and unrelated stories. Though I guess that is the point as it shows how much could change […]
