Goodbye March, Hello April 2015! [NOT YET SUMMER FOR MEEE!!! *sarcasm*]

It's April 1!! Yeah, yeah yeah and I'm 20, I'm 20, I'm 20 *sarcasm*. I don't feel like 20, I don't act like 20, boohoo, anyways, it's just a number. :D

I've been in a reading slump this past two months, all thanks to the school works that kept me restless and left me grasping for sleep all day and all night. In spite of all those things I managed to read 3 books, I finished the last one last night and it still counts (I thought I would  only finish 2 but I squeezed another one, so three!), though I haven't reviewed it yet. Woah, I was in an emotional wreck ride last night and pfff, I can't.

On Book Reviews:

2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge Update: 11 out of 20 books
(I might just adjust the goal to a bigger number)

James Patterson and Emily Raymond's First Love is kind of disappointing but the last two books are just so great, it eased of my negative feelings toward the book - First Love's Book Review & Book in Focus

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini is his first novel that I've tried reading. I was wee bit disappointed at some point but damn, it's worth a read. They say the other novels are better so I'm saving to buy those - And the Mountains Echoed's Book Review & Book in Focus

Lastly, All the Bright Places. I'm still processing it and I haven't written down the review yet sooo. :D

Book Acquisitions:

I didn't buy any books this month because I'm broke. I just had my birthday and I treat all my friends to lunch and dinner. But I've got two books gifted to me:

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Random Bookish Posts:

Had the chance to ask questions for Evelyn Holingue, author of Chronicles from Chateau Moines, in a blog tour by CBB Book  Promotions.

Joined the #15DaysOfLying for E. Lockhart's signing here in Philippines. I wasn't able to go to the signing because it's far away and my Mom wouldn't allow me, but I'm happy to participate in the event to welcome her. Here's my entry.

I stumbled upon a blog post regarding one's reading habits so I made mine. See what are my reading habits and compare it to yours. - Ishiee's Reading Habits

On Something Personal:

Here I am with my friends waiting for the pizzas to arrive. These are my new and old friends. Weee.

Here's a picture of me, my dormies and my two best humans on our dinner date later that night.

I still don't have the pictures during my friends' surprise gift giving to me that's why I can't share it with you. I only have the video of when they gave me a ukulele and it's priceless. OMG.

Here's a picture of what I received on my birthday:


I actually have nothing to share with you about my April plans because I have nothing interesting to share but I am actually planning on opening a blog that compiles PH book bloggers. I am currently working on it now. If oyou are a Filipino Book Blogger and you want to be featured on its launching, email me at and I'll tell you all the details.

That's it for now.
Wish me luck.

Have a good day everyone! :)
