“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.
I don’t recall having done any tags in this blog yet ever, so I figured why not do this super cool and interesting tag I found on Thrice Read’s WordPress blog site. 🙂

1. DO YOU GET SICK WHILE READING IN THE CAR?
Yes, sadly I can’t read nor play games while in a moving vehicles. I will barf all over your car.
April Fools. I know almost everyone is excited enough to pull off the “best” prank they can come up with whenever April Fools is just around the corner and I myself had my fair share of pranks that I deemed meritable—and honestly, not offensive at all.
BUT LETS BE REAL HERE.
At some point in our lives, there is always that ONE PERSON who thinks that April Fools Day is either an excuse to be:
Reading is meant for the privileged, as what most people believe in.
I refuse to adhere to this misconception that reading is only meant for those who have the luxury of being able to sit and relax and enjoy a book.
Is it really?
NaNoWriMo is still a few months away but I’ve recently started on something–I can’t really say what its going to be but I am definitely writing something.
Its gonna be difficult, but I am enjoying how its going so far.
Who else is excited for NaNoWriMo?
Other than that, how do you guys do about your writing? Do you have any rituals you do before you actually write something? Or you just wing it on most days like how I usually end up doing. 🙂
Good evenin’ fellow bookworms!
It has been a really long while since I have updated this blog and I cannot wait to share with you all my humble TBR for March.
Ever since I got hired in my new office, I have just been extremely busy trying to make everything work out, freelance, office work, teaching, parenting, and youtube–including this blog. So far, everythings all settled and I finally figured out a game plan.
Anyway, enough about that–so here are the books I’m planning to read for the month of March!
First of all, my NO SPOILER REVIEW for this book is on booktube but since I really, really, REALLY, loved this book, I decided to do a FULL, NO HOLDS BARRED, REVIEW here on my book blog because Joe Hill is the bomb.
For the curious souls who fear spoilers, the no spoiler (kinda) review is here.
But for those who are brave enough to read through spoilers, proceed with caution—
