Fanmanning Over Heroes: An Interview with Author Matthew Quick

Last Book Syndrome: ‘Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe’ by Benjamin Alire Saez

by Clarissa Chua I got Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saez in exchange for Anna Karenina that my friend gave me. (Thank you, Lord, for gift receipts!) It was a spontaneous choice because I originally wanted Lang Leav’s books but when my mom saw it, her eyes grew wideContinue reading “Last Book Syndrome: ‘Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe’ by Benjamin Alire Saez”

Bookbed recommends: Filipiniana

ni Nicai de Guzman; mga litrato ni Kat Candelaria Noong ako’y nasa elementarya at hayskul, palagi akong nasa silid-aklatan. Nakakahiyang aminin pero hindi ko talaga pinapansin noon ang Filipiniana section. Nang maging miyembro ako ng Heritage Conservation Society-Youth ay saka ko lamang binigyang pansin ang mga akda ng sarili nating kababayan, partikular ang mga tungkol saContinue reading “Bookbed recommends: Filipiniana”

Last Book Syndrome: ‘Divergent’ by Veronica Roth

by Clarissa Chua Divergent by Veronica Roth is definitely not the last book I’ve read. In all honesty, if I get the book nearest to me and turn it to page 70, it’ll say that my life’s assets is tantamount to my liabilities and equity. *gasp* And you wouldn’t want a quote on that, trust me. ThisContinue reading “Last Book Syndrome: ‘Divergent’ by Veronica Roth”

Photobooks: A Trip Down Memory Lane

by Lindy Gamolo Like most things, memories do not last forever. They fade over time, no matter how hard we try to keep them safe in our minds. To make it worse, we could completely lose them when we’re older and maybe have more time to look back on our lives. Sometimes, what’s left are vagueContinue reading “Photobooks: A Trip Down Memory Lane”

FaceBookIt: Makeup Inspired by ‘The Return of the King’ by J.R.R. Tolkien

by Elaine Zapanta and Tellie This time, we teamed up with one of my favorite bloggers to read because her reviews on beauty and skin care products—especially her Monthly Skin Care Snippets—are always honest, funny and on point. It’s no other than the Subscription Boxes Queen herself, Tellie of Beauty By Tellie! I really like the makeup lookContinue reading “FaceBookIt: Makeup Inspired by ‘The Return of the King’ by J.R.R. Tolkien”

Bookbed reviews: ‘Newsflesh’ series by Mira Grant

Ink Blots: ‘Girlfriends’ by Charles Bukowski

by Kariza Montealegre Memories are stories we’ve kept in the tiny compartments of our heads. If we look into our minds, they’re probably libraries housing books about our past. One part of that library could be named Past Lovers (which could be in the Restricted Section for some *wink*). If given a chance, would youContinue reading “Ink Blots: ‘Girlfriends’ by Charles Bukowski”

Last Book Syndrome: ‘P.S. I Still Love You’ by Jenny Han

by Clarissa Chua Relationship Hungover. Those were the words that came to mind when I heard of the title of the sequel to To All the Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han (which I unexpectedly loved, by the way). To a certain degree I was right, but after I read it, the title struck me more. Let’sContinue reading “Last Book Syndrome: ‘P.S. I Still Love You’ by Jenny Han”
