Bookish Traveler #1: Not-So Chocolate Hills

After much encouragement from Braine of Talk Supe, I decided that it's about time to share my other passion to everyone in the form of photos. Bookish Traveler will be a weekly feature here on Not So Literary where we will share one photo every week of a particular place we've been to. This photo may be a selfie, a picture that we took or a picture that someone has took for us. As this is the very first post, I think I would have to share the beauty of my home country.

Review: All the Rage by Courtney Summers

The title could not be any more appropriate. If ever there were a time when I was very close to transforming into a She-Hulk, it would be while reading this book.

So when we started this blog, I was on a break. I just signed off from my last contract on the ship and I was sitting at home contemplating what to do next, to stay on ships or start a new adventure. As it turned out, fate had other plans for me…but that’s a different […]

Review: The Eterna Files by Leanna Renee Hieber

Let me tell you a funny story. One day, my family and I decided to go to this Chinese restaurant in Muscat, Oman. The interior designs were awesome, the people were amicable, and the food was great. One of the meals we ordered was beef in chili sauce and bell pepper. We finished the meat, of […]


Audiobook Review: Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop

Let me just start this review by stating that I ADORE THIS SERIES. I loved Written in Red but this book solidified my love for the beauty and brutality of The Others and the world of Thasia. I have actually listened to this months ago and since I’m the queen of procrastination, I’m only writing my review […]
