WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER - Jenny Han {Review}

TITLEWe'll Always Have Summer (Summer#3)
AUTHOR/s: Jenny Han

PUBLICATION DATE: 1st of April, 2011
AVAILABLE AT: AMAZON | BOOK DEPOSITORY

Ever since I've read - and loved - her To All The Boys I've Loved Before, most of my friends heavily recommended this series. Actually, I thought of staying away from this because basing on the blurb, the plot wouldn't really be for me. However, due to the continuous recs (and fine, my curiosity on what they hype is about), I decided to give in.

After a few months, finally, I'm down to the last book of Jenny Han's Summer Trilogy! I've previously reviewed the first two books in the series - The Summer I Turned Pretty and It's Not Summer Without You. I also immediately read this one after the second but I had a hard time thinking of a way of putting my emotions into words. And now, even though it's long overdue, here are my thoughts on We'll Always Have Summer :)

PROM QUEEN PERFECT - Clarisse David {Cover Reveal}

I've always liked the concept of "Proms." Not because my high school promenade was such a big hit but because it's the closest thing to a grand ball that a girl could attend. That's why I try to immerse myself more on stories with this theme.

Some time way ago, I've heard the buzz about Clarisse David's Prom Queen Perfect and when I learned that they're opening a cover reveal event for it, I immediately signed up!

A quick thank you to Lola's Blog Tours for organizing this event and for allowing me to participate :)

THE BYE BYE BOUQUET - Chi Yu Rodriguez {Filipino Friday Review}



#FilipinoFriday [3]
The Bye Bye Bouquet
- Chi Yu Rodriguez
TITLEThe Bye Bye Bouquet
AUTHOR/s: Chi Yu Rodriguez
PUBLICATION DATE14th of February, 2016
AVAILABLE AT:  AMAZON | PRINT

Yay for another dose of some Filipino luvin' <3 And for today, we have here on the blog Chi Yu Rodriguez' The Bye Bye Bouquet!

For those who don't know: Most local authors and readers (including myself) have 'pledged' to boost their support of Filipino-authored books this 2016 and thus, the burst of little projects that could help Filipino writers get their works out there (click the Share The Love banner to know more!)

One of them is #FilipinoFriday which I learned from Miss April. The experiment is quite simple: You- yes, you- can have the opportunity to read works of Filipino authors under the romance class catalog (http://romanceclassbooks.com/) in exchange of an honest review and a little social media blast. Click the #FilipinoFriday banner to know more!



*Thanks to Miss April (@iambinibini) for providing a review copy! Receiving one did not affect my views on the book.

Una & Miguel 
- Lilledeshan Bose



TITLEUna & Miguel
AUTHOR/s: Lilledeshan Bose
PUBLICATION DATE2012

A couple of months ago, I received an advanced Valentines' Day gift from a friend (shoutout to my fab bookish friend, @WalkinLibrary!) It was a book he's been recommending to me because he knows how much I support locally published works (and he said that the lead character reminds him of me lol) Since it fits the theme of the annual celebration (and it was a gift for that event), I decided to spend Valentines reading this beauty :)

So today, although it seems waaaay overdue, I'm sharing my thoughts about my Feb. 14 read: Lilledeshan Bose's Una & Miguel :)
