After months of not updating this blog due to life choices that I wasn’t expecting at all (ehem, Graduate Studies, ehem)
I am finally back to share with you guys a couple of book recommendations that I think are great reads for the month of December!
Not every book I’m listing down here are Christmas-themed, but somehow–related?
(Like, theres snow, chilly, festivity, etc.,) –you get the idea.
“If I strip away all the trappings of personality and lifestyle, what are the components that makes me me?” – Blake Crouch, Dark Matter
With Manila International Book Fair just around the corner, I figured I could use this tag as an excuse to list down some of the books I’ve been eyeing on for some time now.
I’m not really a wishlist type of person, just because I’m not really good at accepting gifts; and it seemed like one fine tag to do to kill time.
You get lost a lot.
You sometimes wish that you were part of that world where you’ve met your best friend, your first love, your family, another version of you.

“Some people stay broken. Some pick up the pieces and put them back together with all the sharp edges showing.” – Dot Hutchison, The Butterfly Garden
I first discovered this book while I was on one of my impulse buying evenings—ehem, late nights actually–on amazon.
The cover caught my eye and I figured I’d read about it if it was worth buying–and here I am doing a review of it.
The Butterfly Garden is actually the first book of a trilogy that Hutchison is currently working on and I believe the 2nd book is already available entitled Roses of May.
Hey guys, it has been a while–I know.
I have been busy with the processing of my Graduate Studies and have been obsessing over work for a few days now, and it has taken its toll on my dominant hand.
So now, we’re back to regular programming and I can finally catch up on my reading.
Lets take a look on how bad my reading challenge is doing:
Honestly, that doesn’t look good at all.
I was asked by Lokesh Sharma if I was interested in reviewing his debut novel and told me the gist (duh, of course) of what the book is about. I honestly wasn’t expecting his novel to be that big a deal when I first heard about it because, debut novel + really broad topic, do the math.
