Back to School!

June marks the beginning of very different seasons for different countries in the world. For example, the rainy season usually starts on June in the Philippines, while for other countries, it is the month when the weather starts to get sizzling hot. Also, June is the month when students get back to school and start their 10-month academic year in the Philippines, while in other countries, school is officially over. So there! I am again a studying student for about 10 months starting today.

That means blogging will be less regular than before, because as much as I love reading and posting stuff about books, my priority is still my studies. I need to study and graduate in order to find a good job that pays well (very well) so I can buy more books. Hahahahaha!

That's me (find me if you can) with few of my high school friends just a month ago, enjoying summer by the pool.

Feature & Follow Friday (8)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme
hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

 Have you broken up with a series? If so which one and why?


Is this the situation wherein you've read the first book (or first few books), then for some reason you can't seem to get yourself to read the sequels? If so, my answer would be the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater, The Immortals Series by Alyson Noel, the Halo series by Alexandra Adornetto, and The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer.

BABY & ME (2008)
Lead Cast: Jang Keun-Suk, Mason Moon, Song Ha-Yoon
Director: Kim Jin-Young
Prime Entertainment


Joon-Soo (Jang Keun-Suk) is a rebellious high school kid, popular with the girls, but an absolute nightmare for his parents and teachers. Joon-Soo soon drives his parents batty enough that they decide to up and leave their house. When Joon-Soo finds out that his parents are AWOL he does what any party animal would do, he calls his friends over for a house party

That afternoon, Joon-Soo prepares for the party by going to the grocery store and buying drinks & food . While at the grocery store, he briefly leaves his shopping cart unattended to check out the liquor selection. When he comes back to his shopping cart, he’s stunned to find a baby in his cart. Even more confounding, after waiting for hours at the store, nobody comes forward to claim the baby. And to top everything off, theres a note on the baby which claims Joon-soo is the father!


My Thoughts:

This Korean movie has been recommended to me a lot of times already by some of my classmates. Now that I already sat down and watched it, I think I can also say the do the same. I can recommend this to anyone who wants a good laugh, yet triggers emotions from deep within.

BOOK BLURB: Losing It (Losing It #1)

Author: Cora Carmack
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks
 Number of Pages: 289
Date Published: December 5, 2012
Genre: New Adult Romance



Bliss Edwards is about to graduate from college and still has hers. Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, she decides the best way to deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible-- a one-night stand. But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. And as if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier.


My Thoughts:
I was having doubts if I should really read this book or just leave it unread. Why? First of all, when you read the synopsis, the first thing that comes to your mind is sex. A lot of steamy moments and everything that minors should take caution reading; A story all about sex and losing one’s virginity, and who would want that? Second, it’s another student-teacher relationship story and I have read a few already. Do I really need to read another one?

May Wrap-Up!

Five months down! *happy dance*

Who would have thought that this small town girl living in a crazy world, who does nothing but eat, sleep, read books, watch TV, listen to music, and study occasionally would be able to keep up a blog for five months? Not me. But thank God I have managed.

Let's go straight to the point, shall we? Blog updates! 

The books I have read in May.

Given a month of summer vacation, you would probably think I spent every waking hour reading books. I actually planned that before vacation began. But nothing went according to plan. Somehow, I only manage to read a few. I get distracted by a lot of things these days.

I have read 7 books this May - 6 medium-length to long books, and 1 short story. Some reviews are posted on the blog and some on Goodreads. The cover images link up to where I posted my thoughts (except for Losing It, I haven't written anything about that.)
