Journal || FLICKER by Niall Horan

October 20, 2017, Flicker by Niall Horan came out. I am happy and devasted at the same time because of two reasons: 1. I don’t have enough money to buy the album, and 2. My father will found out about it and he will scold me for this.

I know you’ll be like, “C’mon! It’s for your happiness! It’s not like you’re buying illegal or something.” or maybe you don’t buy my reasons, but I’m sorry it’s true. BUT NOW, I am happy to announce that I BOUGHT THE ALBUM with the help of my friend. I’m so so so happy! I’ve been longing for this album for three years now, and now that I have the physical copy, I am the happiest fan in the world! Oh my. I am so happy.

I hope I could buy Heartbreak weather soon.


What about you lovelies? Are you a fan of Niall Horan? If not who? Let’s discuss! Leave a comment!

This book is breathe of fresh air for me. It follows the story about a mysterious woman named Athena or Sherine, told by the many who knew her well—or hardly at all. I’m looking forward to finishing this book because as you read through it, you also find yourself reflecting.

Book Review

Book Review || Scythe by Neal Shusterman

32660808. sy475

“If the conscience of the Scythedom fails, replaced by the avarice of privilege, we could become our own worst enemy again.”

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It is a perfect teen adventure for me. The world on which Neal Shusterman created in this book is fascinating. I am captivated by how this world works because there are no deaths! Humanity has conquered all things. This book is pure genius. It gives us an idea or a glimpse of what might occur in the future if we attain immortality. Truly not the best concept, killing people to balance out the population but this book gave us a possible reality if this situation might occur and how people learn to live in this perfect world knowing that it would come to a heavy price.

I am also captivated about how ‘change’ is the most permanent happenstance in humanity, in the world. Especially how morality changes in the process of becoming this world they created and they were not the same being they once were.

Absolutely one of my favorite books! I highly recommend this book especially to those who had fun reading Mortal Instruments or Hunger Games kind of books! This is such a unique well-written story. The characters are great and no interaction nor page is boring. Can’t wait to read the second book!

Journal || When it rains, it reminds me of you.

Hello, lovelies! It’s been a week since I’ve posted. This will be a short journal.

It’s been a hard week for me. My pet cat died and I didn’t handle it well. She was a few weeks old when we rescued her from the storm. She was in a box, alone. Her name was ‘Ulan’ a Tagalog term meaning rain in English.

I love her so much. No days come by that I don’t miss her. I always believe that all animals go to heaven so that I won’t get sad when an animal dies especially in unfortunate ways.

To Ulan, I hope you’re doing great. When it rains, it reminds me of you. You made rain a bittersweet memory of you.

WWW Wednesday

Hello, lovelies! It’s my first time doing WWW Wednesday, a meme revived by a blogger Taking on a World of Words. I found this tag to Soph’s Book World. Check out her blog. I really love it. Here is her entry.

HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY!! I hope you my lovelies are doing well!!!

1.WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?

Scythe by by Neal Shusterman

32660808. sy475

I really love this book. It’s about a world without hunger, disease, or death; basically, they conquered immortality. Due to an increasing population “Scythes” are the ones who can take life to control the size of the population. It’s a very interesting concept because it makes you think of “What if we did conquer death. Must we kill? Sacrifice?” I love that this story also comes with conscience and foreshadowing politics.

Even though i haven’t finished the book/series yet. I highly recommend it.

2. WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
