mini reviews

De-stressing with Adult Coloring Books

Adult coloring books have become quite the crazy lately around these parts. I’ve seen a lot of variations in book stores, and it’s amazing how fast they get sold out. I managed to snag a few on a couple of impromptu shopping sprees last month (RIP wallet) and dang, the artwork is sometimes so pretty that I kinda don’t want to color it because my coloring/shading/blending skills kinda suck. I end up leafing through the pages and admiring the beautiful details instead. XD

I don’t think I can properly rate coloring books so I’ve written mini-reviews instead about the ones I’ve got so far. These are the coloring books I’ve managed to get my hands on: (more…)

Mini-review spree: Shine, Trese, The False Prince, and Zombies vs. Unicorns

I’ve already read 5 books so far this year and I’m feeling slightly panicky because  something tells me that if I don’t blog about them soon, my lazy ass is gonna just shrug it off and I’ll ignore them forever…and I don’t really want that to happen. Lol.

So to counter my laziness, I figured I’ll do mini-reviews for each book I’ve devoured so far because I figured that if I attempt to blog about them one by one, they might end up as drafts that never see the light of day. (Ugh, I’m sorry I’m so lazy T_T)

These books deserve recognition. Plus, they’re part of my reading challenges. Yes, challenges with an “s” because I am a masochist who wasn’t content with just one challenge. Guess who’s going to be crying at the end of the year as she struggles to complete them all. XD

The first challenge is the one I posted here, and the second one is a personal goal I decided on not so long ago: read 20 books by Filipino authors this year. I really, definitely need (and want) to be more aware and discover the gems of my own country’s literature.

Anyway, TL;DR: here are the reviews (which are short and probably don’t make much sense because I scribbled them down during lunch, hah)!
