THE SUMMER OF LOST WISHES - Jessa Gabrielle {Book Spotlight}

Summer reads are always my thing whatever the time of the year is. The sandy beaches, cottages, palm trees, and of course, the potential start of another adventure!

With Jessa Gabrielle's debut novel, all these will be brought to readers without even leaving the comfort of their own homes. Plus, it has a lovely cover! *hearts!*

YELLOW BRICK WAR - Danielle Paige {Review}

TITLEYellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die #3)
AUTHOR/s: Danielle Paige

PUBLICATION DATE: 15th of March, 2016
AVAILABLE AT: AMAZON | BOOK DEPOSITORY


As a child, I've always been a big fan of tales especially Wizard of Oz and Wicked. Now, as a "grown-up", it's always nice to see various retellings based on stories I've loved during my childhood. However, I didn't think it was even possible (probably growth hormones) but sometimes, I actually like these retellings more than the original stories themselves since they add new flavors and give a deeper exploration to the world I grew up in. Just like the Dorothy Must Die Series!


Sometime last year, I've started the first two books in Danielle Paige's  Dorothy Must Die Series  as well as its Companion Stories. Since then, I've eagerly anticipated the release of its third installment, Yellow Brick War. And now that I've FINALLY gone through all of its goodness, I'm excited to sure my thoughts with you guys :D

Bookish Babble - Bookish Meet-ups!



Bookish Meet-ups!
(AKA meeting a few people in the bookworms' world!)

~~~




So yesterday was a day that most book lovers and bloggers have been looking forward to for weeks: #BookwormsUnitePH! 


On its second year, Bookworms Unite is an event hosted by amazing book bloggers in PH which, hopefully, becomes an annual event! Unfortunately, like last year, I still wasn't able to go because reasons (boohoo).

Fact: I've been blogging for quite some time now, yet, I still haven't been into any "real" bookish event which means so far, I still haven't officially met any friends in the blogosphere nor any of my fave authors (hear my heart break). 

On the brighter side, despite not being able to make it to these said events, the past few weeks have been amazing since I started my internship at Summit Media *yay* I have always dreamed of being in this company and now that I'm here even if it's just for OJT, it still feels surreal especially being surrounded (and interacting!!!) with the great minds behind the amazing stuff I've been reading in magazines (read: Candy, Cosmopolitan, K-zone, Total Girl, Yummy, etc.) and books (Summit Books, buqo.ph, etc.). 

However, I never really thought that I'll be meeting people from the bookish community here at Summit aside from Editors-in-chief, publishers, and writers whom I admire.

Want to find out who they are? Read on!

ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES - Jennifer Niven {Review}

TITLE: All the Bright Places
AUTHOR/s: Jennifer Niven

PUBLICATION DATE: 6th of January, 2015
AVAILABLE AT: AMAZON | BOOK DEPOSITORY
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18460392-all-the-bright-places

Recently, best selling author Jennifer Niven popped into the Philippines. Unfortunately, (1) I haven't been able to attend her signing and (2) I still haven't read her book *cries*

Fast forward to a few weeks later, I finally had the chance to get my hands on this beauty! It's one of the titles that I've patiently waited for ever since I learned about it. Just by its plot, I knew All the Bright Places would be a book for me. And I definitely was NOT mistaken! :)
