Why hello there, lovely readers of this blog. It’s midweek once more and I can’t believe how fast the days are actually coming and going! To be honest, I’m having a pretty slumpy March, and so far I have only read one (ONE! UGH!) book since the month started. 😦 I don’t know what’s happening but I sure hope this little update I’m making would give me a push to read more for the rest of the month!

Again, as you all probably know already, WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking On a World of Words where you just have to answer the three W-questions! 🙂 It’s some sort of a quick reading update, too!

The 3 W’s are:

  1. What are you currently reading? 
  2. What did you recently finish reading? 
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

7664334So I am currently reading Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour and just fitting to say that this has long been overdue. The book has been sitting on my shelf since forever (bought this for Morgan Matson’s signing tour in Manila, but which event I never had the chance to go to!) and for some reason, I never had the chance to pick it up.

But the tables have turned and I am definitely feeling my YA Contemporary vibe again! I missed my YA contemporaries, to be honest. This past months, all I’ve been devouring are NAs and Fantasies, and I definitely missed my less angsty, all fluffy and sweet YAs.

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour is a road trip novel. Amy has just recently lost her dad in a car accident and she refuses to drive. However, she has to move to a new place that requires, er, a long drive. Enter Roger. A family friend who, for some twist of fate, also has to go to somewhere near where Amy’s going. And so both their moms decided that it would be best if Roger be the one who will drive Amy to Connecticut. What they both don’t know is that an epic road trip is ahead of them.

25883848I can’t believe this is Sally Thorne’s debut novel! It was such a cute all fluffy adult contemporary and I just want more from her.

The Hating Game is about Lucy Hutton and Josh Templeman, mortal enemies. Needless to say, they HATE each other. No,scratch that. They LOATHE each other to death. Both are executive assistants  to the two big bosses of a publishing companies they are working for. However, when the chance that one of them will get a promotion, the mutual hate definitely intensified.

I admit that for a short and sweet contemporary like this one, it to me a surprisingly long time to read it – 3 weeks to be exact! But that didn’t become a factor for me to lose interest in the story, because everytime I would open my Kindle, I always feel the connection I have with Josh and Luce. I definitely recommend this one! Go treat yourself to some happy and cutesy romance. You’ll never regret it, I swear!

In my attempt to trim down my TBR Pile through the Beat the Bucket List Challenge I am joining in, I will be reading A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray next. Like Amy & Roger’s, this one has been sitting in my shelf for too long now. Plus I have recently been seeing around the second and third book a lot lately, so I’ve decided to finally pick A Thousand Pieces of You next so I can binge read the series! 🙂

Next in my list of what to read next is The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis. This has been picked as our Book of the Month over at my Rainbow Book Club. We are reading something yellow this March, hence the book 🙂 I have been hearing great stuff and great reviews over at Goodreads, but to tell you the truth, I have zero knowledge about what it’s really about! I would like to say that I intend to have it that way, because lately all I wanna do is be surprised by the things I read! I am so looking forward to this one!

I wanna talk to you guys about your current reads, the ones you just finished, and your plans for the next days to come! I can’t wait to hear from you in the comments below! Let’s chat! And as always,

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? #2 || February 27, 2017

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date where everybody gets to share what they are presently and about to read during the week.


I don’t hate Mondays and I’m happy to say that Mondays and I have always been in good terms. However, this particular Monday, 27th of February, in this particular week, seems a little bit off for me. I have so so so much work to do; and so so so many more stuff to fix about my life in general! Gee. I’m so tired already just thinking about EVERYTHING!!! Anyway, enough of my little rant. 🙂 I’ll just be having a quick check in as to what’s in store for me this week, reading-wise. 🙂 At least this part of my life is exciting 😉

Nemesis (n.)
1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome;
2) A person’s undoing;
3) Joshua Templeman.
Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.


So I am currently reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne and my goodness, I am loving each word that comes out of this book! This is just the refresher I need coming from a week-long slump! It seems like after having a very successful reading month last January, everything went downhill when February started! Ha!  But then I get this precious in my little hands and everything is right in the world again! 🙂

I’m currently halfway through it and I can’t imagine it ending already! Just thinking about closing the last page already makes me really really sad! Overly dramatic, yeah. It’s just I’m so so in love with Josh and Lucy and the slow burn hate to love relationship that’s going on between them. I can’t say much yet, y’know, but things are really looking up! Never a dull moment, and I can’t wait to see what happens next! ❤



Have you guys read The Hating Game? Let’s talk about what you thought about it in the comments below! 🙂
