Review: Once Perfect by Cecy Robson

Don't mind the huge guy in a black wifebeater and cheesy matching beanie just standing there hanging around with his hands down his pockets and his neck bulging with muscles. Also don't mind the 1990s Word-artish lettering of the title, and the fact that the author's name is written in a smaller font size so she mustn't have a following yet. Don't mind it because beyond all that is a delicious, sometimes funny romance. This somehow reminds me of Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster, but I guess … Read More...

Review: Definitely, Maybe In Love by Ophelia London

I went into this blind, not knowing that the story was based on Pride & Prejudice (I didn’t read the blurb, so sue me), but, ahem, I caught on pretty quickly. And here’s where I reluctantly admit that the reason I recognized it is NOT because I’m a fan of the classics. Before Amir rats […]

Speed Views #2: Fluffy Girl Rears Her Snarky Head

Speed Views is a new feature here on The Not-So-Literary Heiresses. We got the idea from Speed Dating, where participants are supposed to give as much information about themselves as quickly as possible. So we got thinking…what if we do that process but we review books instead? The result is this feature. Enjoy! Lest you think I’m now […]

Mini Review: The Fine Art of Pretending by Rachel Harris

Guilty pleasure kind of read, one that made me kind of giggly despite the ridiculous and not to mention clichéd premise of 1) makeover transformation, 2) pretend boyfriend and 3) best friends falling in love. The third hooked me. Friends falling in love has always been one of my favorite story lines. Harry and Sally? […]

Gushing and Ravings #4: ONE (awesome) PIECE

Gushings and Ravings is a feature here on The Not-So-Literary Heiresses wherein we share our current obsessions or all-time favorite anything, so they may or may not necessarily be bookish.

Happy Halloween. Let me horrify you.

Can you guess who or what we want to dress up as this Halloween? I think what I love about the holiday is that you can dress up however you want and people won’t mind. And yo get free candy. I’ve never done this though, but it looks really fun. But other than that… I […]

HarperCollins Preview (+ Int’l Giveaway)

HarperCollins International Publicist, Sarah, hosted a book blogger Preview Night in the Philippines last October 21, which I attended. (Yeah, I’m posting this a little late) Basically, it was to show us the upcoming titles that we can start impatiently waiting for. There was also bookish trivia and food to enjoy. We started out with the […]

Why is no one talking about this?

First, watch this: I hope you were as entertained as I was with that video! It was so funny. Anyway, has anyone ever heard about this bookstore? If you have, why aren’t you telling anyone?! I’ve been going around the book blogging community for around 2 years now, but I’ve never encountered this bookstore before. […]

The Prodigal Blogger’s #Giveaway!

I have a confession. I haven’t really been busy with real life. I haven’t been pulling overnighters at work, nor have I been engrossed in my role as wife. I haven’t been spending that much time with my real-life friends either. Instead, my hours are being eaten up by the mundane: books that I don’t […]

Do you like reserving books?

  Do you like reserving books? I’m talking about brick-and-mortar bookstore here. I’m not really sure if a lot of people still prefer this. I think book shopping is difficult for some countries so they choose convenient online stores. But anyway, let’s talk about those local bookstores we so love. My favorite bookstore is one […]

The TBR Tag

I don’t really have the time to do a proper review right now so thank you Joy of Joyousreads for tagging me! The TBR Tag originated from a collaboration between Danasquare and A Perfection Called, Books – driven by their curiosity on how the rest of us manage our piles. To this I say…Management? What Management? […]
