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 »
When my parents travelled to Perth, Australia this June, they came across a bookstore called Elizabeth’s Bookshop and the Blind Date With A Book concept, where a book is fully wrapped and you have to base your choice on a few vague phrases written on the wrapping that describe the book. Knowing that I enjoy reading, they bought one for me. They told me of this over WhatsApp and sent me a picture of the choices available, asking me what book I would have chosen if I was there. 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.

Hello everyone! After that last not-so-favourable review, I decided I would just read books that are more similar to my preferences. Not really in the mood to continue trying out new genres. I am, however, in the mood to try out a new review format… but I’m too lazy to zzz… for now…
I received an ebook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I need to stop reading and writing reviews at this rate and actually do some homework.
My original review was actually a lot more criticising than this one but I downplayed it a bit… Like just because I don’t like this book due to the what I felt was overly excessive kissing scenes, doesn’t mean that others would dislike the book as well.
Hello everyone! I’ve been exploring this thing called NetGalley recently and I thought that I should at least read some of the books on my shelf and review them. That’s what the site is about after all. So here’s yet another review from yours truly.
