Weekly Recap – Enjoy Your Weekend! (June 24, 2017)

Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you all are having an amazing weekend. I had an amazing week and couldn’t be happier. Reading wise, I did read amazing books and just had new great recommendations from fellow book bloggers. You guys are fantastic. Thank you! In addition, My sister in law and I are planning to be having another mini trip in the beginning of July in her hometown. Yay, SO excited. I miss going to beaches. Last time I went there was two years ago and I enjoyed it. Can’t wait to be back again. I’m also joining blogging ahead challenge hosted by Anna @ Herding Cats Burning Soup Blog. Two weeks ago I had a trip to my hometown and just realized how much I needed to blog ahead. I was overwhelmed by keeping up with the blogging while on the road. Thank you so […]

Weekly Recap – Catching Up with Blogging (June 17, 2017)

Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you had a wonderful week and are enjoying the weekend. As you know I’ve just got back from a mini vacation to my hometown. I had an amazing time spending with my family. We even had some mini trips which made it even more fun. Thank you for all your comments last week. I read each one of them but the circumstances preventing me from replying right away. I missed you all so much. Last week on the blog: Last week was not a great week, reading-wise. I read two books I didn’t enjoy. They weren’t as good as I hoped. However, I’m glad I read two books last week considering I just got back. I even managed to write Weekly Recap and Latest Book News. I was just kind of behind with blogging in general. I missed talking to […]

Weekly Recap – Blogging While Traveling is Hard (June 10, 2017)

Hi, how are you guys? Sorry I haven’t been active since last week. As you might know, I’m having a trip in my hometown visiting my parents and sisters. One of my sisters is getting married as I said in my previous recaps, and I’m helping her to do some things relating to the marriage preparation. the rest of my time has been spending with my parents and doing some mini trips with them. I’m enjoying my time here and cannot wait to be back in November for the wedding. I’ll have a flight back tomorrow and be back to blogging as soon as I arrive. Thank you for your love and comments this last week. The internet here is poor, so combined with the mini trips I had I haven’t been able to blog as much as I used to and hoped for. I promise I […]

Weekly Recap – Have a Wonderful Week! (May 28, 2017)

Hi guys, how are you? I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. How was your week? I had a great one, reading wise. Thank you for those who share their monthly book budget last week. I got a lot of tips and have been encouraged to evaluate my own budgets. I’m planning to limit my purchases these upcoming months and focus on reading the ones I’ve already purchased or got for reviews. Last week on the blog: I read two books last week and enjoyed both of them. I’ve just discovered a wonderful author, A. Zavarelli. You might already be familiar with her books, she was a totally new author to me when I read Crow. I cannot recommend her series, Boston Underworld, more. Seriously, it is awesome. I’m currently reading book 2 and cannot put it down. Book Review – Ruckus (Sinners of Saint #2) […]

Weekly Recap – Monthly Budgets for Books (May 21, 2017)

Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you’re all enjoying this weekend. I had a wonderful week and did have a great reading time. I hope you did too. I want to give an update on my reading progress. Do you have a monthly budget for books? I read mostly ebooks (kindle) these days. They are cheaper and easy to carry, but my one-click habit has been out of control these last few months. I have so many books I’ve purchased that I’m not sure I’ll manage to read. They’re just sitting on my kindle and waiting for my attention. As a slow reader who has limited time to read, I’m struggling to read more than two books a week. So I’m planning to limit my monthly budgets by choosing the books I’m really interested in reading. The books I list below are just some of […]

Weekly Recap – NetGalley and Books I Received & Bought (May 14, 2017)

Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you are doing great and having a wonderful weekend. Last week was a good week for me. I made an account on NetGalley and got a book I requested. Thank you to all fellow book bloggers that have given me awesome advice about the site and how to use it. I’ve been extra careful when it comes to requesting books and only requested two books so far. I’m used to buying books based on recommendations from my trusted book bloggers and prefer that way. I do enjoy NetGalley but requesting books that weren’t recommended by book bloggers actually terrifies me. I’m afraid I’ll end up reading and reviewing the books I don’t like and getting burned out at the end because of it. I’m having a short trip to my hometown to visit my parents and sisters next week and […]

Weekly Recap – Happy Easter (April 16, 2017)

Hi, everyone. Happy Easter for those who are celebrating! I’ve had a fantastic week, mostly because Easter was coming. I love celebrating Easter. I hope you have a great week, too. Anyway, thank you for all of your well-wishes for me last week. I am feeling great now. I hope you all are too. 😀 Last week on the blog: Not much happening last week. I didn’t post many but I did have a great reading time. I was spending time reading Sins Duet (Black Hearts & Dirty Souls) by Karina Halle. Although I didn’t love the series as much as I hoped, I did have a good time reading it. I’m planning to read more of romantic suspense books in the future. Do you have any recommendations? 😀 Just in case you haven’t read them yet, here are my recent book reviews: Book Review – Sins […]

Weekly Recap – I didn’t feel well (April 9, 2017)

Hi, everyone. I hope everyone had a great week. I had a rough one. In fact, I was contemplating on whether I should write this post. I don’t have much to share, honestly. As some of you might have known, I did get sick two weeks ago and then I felt better a few days later. However, I got sick again last week and it affected my reading time. It was a huge bummer since I had planned to post three book reviews last week. I’m getting better now, though, so everything is ok. 😀 Another thing I want to share is that I’d decided to do a little change. As you know, I’d been devouring The Others series by Anne Bishop since two weeks ago and I’d loved and enjoyed it, but I decided to take a little break and started a new story in […]

Hi guys, how are you? I hope you all had a great week. I had a very busy but productive week, but my reading experience was not as good as I had hoped for. I managed to read and review two books but did not enjoy them as much as I would have loved.
