Really cutting it close with this haul + wrap-up post. Almost wanted to procrastinate it till next week 😅
Since this month is part of a school term, all my book buying money has to come from my allowance. I gave myself a limit of two books per month, but this month has taught me something important: NEVER BUY BOOKS AT THE START OF THE MONTH. I literally went broke this month. Didn’t even have a single cent left. So now, I have learnt my lesson and I will put off the buying of books till the last week of each month. This I swear on the River Styx. In fact, I think I might go on a book buying ban next month. Maybe I’ll spend the money on props for my bookstagram or just simply save up the money for AFA 2016 or a huge book buying spree at the end of the year.Read More »

And guess what? They actually bought the one I would have chosen had I been there! Mother knows best, indeed.
Two days ago, I discovered The Novel Encounter, a Singapore-based online store which follows a similar concept, just that they sell only mystery books.Read More »
This review is long overdue. But in the time that I have been procrastinating this review, I have been thinking and have realised that I don’t really care much for the characters, only what will happen to them and how the storyline pans out. It is a good story, but it’s just one that I would read to burn time… it’s not one that would stay with me forever.
