Book List: Books to Get You Out of a Slump

20211123_111009_0000

One of the advices that I give whenever someone asks me what I usually do to get out of a reading slump is reading your favorite books because it always works for me. Another technique that works for me is reading short books, romance books, and thrillers as these types of books are very easy to read and get through. So without further ado, here are some of the books that helped me get out of a reading slump:

2022 Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hi, everyone! I’m doing the Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag a little bit late this year because I’ve been busy with personal stuff in the past three weeks or so. So this tag was created in 2016 by Ely and Chami on BookTube and it has been an ongoing tag around the book community to help bookish people wrap up the first half of their reading year. I have to admit that I haven’t been religiously doing this throughout the years, but here I am this year!

As you all know, I got married this year which is why, at the start of the year, I decided to just set 12 books for my Goodreads reading challenge. I knew for a fact that I wouldn’t have a lot of reading time this year given that I have a lot of adjusting to do. But as of writing, I’ve already completed my goal of 12 books, so I decided to adjust it to 20 books! It’s not much compared to others’ 50+ books a year, but I’m happy that I got past my initial goal early on. Continue reading

Books #Bookstagram Made Me Buy

20211123_111009_0000

Bookstagram has been one of my favorite book communities in the past couple of years. It’s been alive for quite some time now, but I believe that it regained its peak during the pandemic. The book community as a whole is one of the most beloved community in the web because the people are just so kind and genuine, especially when talking about their favorite books.

With that said, I would like to dedicate a blogpost the the bookstagram community and share with you the titles that I’ve bought because of it. You may also check Fully Booked Online to find you next great read!

Five-Star Predictions

I don’t think I’ve ever done one this kind of list before, so I decided to do one. As you all know, I have a ton of books on my physical TBR and though I have been slowly putting a dent on it, I have also been adding new titles every once in a while. Well, that’s quite the life of most bookworms, wouldn’t you agree so? Haha

So I took the time to stare at my bookcase and skimmed through the titles that I think (and badly hoping) would be a 5 star read for me. I chose these five books because I honestly have high expectations for them given that there have been quite some hype for them around the book community.

11 ‘Philippine Independence Day’ Reads

20211123_111009_0000

Yesterday was my country’s Independence Day — this day commemorates the Philippines’ freedom from the Spanish colonization. But with everything that has been happening in my country recently, I think it is best that we remind ourselves more of our history. The Philippines was not only colonized by Spain, Japan, or the US. The country has also suffered from tyranny and betrayal from its own government who made the nation believe in their lies and promises of a better life and a better country.

It’s very disheartening that we neglect and take for granted the freedom and democracy that the generations before us have fought so hard for. It’s terrifying how I see a lot of people calling those years the golden era of the Philippines when the whole world refers to it as the darkest days of the Philippines in recent years.

With that, I would like to read the following books to remind and further educate myself on what has transcribed in the past for us, my generation and the next, to achieve the democracy that we now take for granted. Some of the books mentioned below are also about present-day atrocities by the outgoing administration. I am sharing it with all of you as you might also want to learn from these books:

10 Queer Books I Want to Read

20211123_111009_0000

Howdy! And I’m back with another list for you. This time, I’m sharing with you some queer books that I would like to read. In recent years, the number of books relating to and/or about LGBTQ+ have grown and it’s something that we must all be proud of. I must admit, I haven’t read a lot of LGBTQ+ books and I promised myself to work on that this year and the succeeding years. With that said, I picked the top 10 queer books on my Goodreads TBR to create this list.
