My Bookish Goals for 2014

7 years ago | filed under Fiction
I think I accomplished my goals for this year. I did attend some bookish events. I definitely read more (I even outdid my previous record). And I also have new e-reader (I even got two now). So for 2104 I’m thinking of the same goals to achieve. I’m not really much of a well-planned person and I tend to go with the flow instead of planning way ahead, I will still keep my groove, the way I like it. So that being said here are my blogging resolutions for 2014: 1. Read More – Same last year, I want to

I know Christmas was yesterday but I’m still in the merry mood! And this season is not only for jolly but also for list and wishes.

(Another Mitchii Special, also known as Mitchii’s poor excuse to use #AdventureTime gifs.) We always get excited to read books. But there are books that are far too precious and far too excited to read. These books are part of our All Time Favorites. Books that we nail-bitingly waiting to be released. If I’m fortunate enough to get an ARC then hooray but in my unfortunately experience, the ARC is always not available—at least not available to me. So I need to wait, snoop around to the lucky people who got it (the author as the main target). Stalk their

Bookish Verbosity: Books ≠ Movies?

Books are better than the movies? To avoid comparison should we separate them? Bookish Verbosity is a non-regular feature at AEROPAPERS where I talk about topics that are related to books, blogging and the community. I’ve read this from somewhere before, I’m just not too sure which site it was, anyways, the commenter said that we should treat the books and movies as an entirely separate entity. Hmm, it did make me think, that in a way he/she has a point. With the influx of book to movie adaptation, particularly from young adult genre many fans of the books are

It’s December and while I’m happy that I have reached my goal earlier than expected *self- applauding* there are still books that I still haven’t read. Yeah, before when I was beginning to read books (I told you many times that I’m not really bookworm when I was bit younger). I don’t know which books to read, so I end picking up everything that fancy my taste. And miraculously I did end up loving ‘em. Now that I haven’t been here for quite some time my taste has changed. I’m not easy to please anymore plus the fact that I’m

Another Edition of Mitchii’s Special. Hurhur! (Adventure Time!

Like massive deal! You know the only time I’ll get to see them personally if they fly out here and do book signing (which I am so grateful to the people who make it happens) so the chance to see them is very, very scarce. I was so lucky to meet Tahereh Mafi (and Ransom Riggs) earlier this year. There were also other book

I have poor management/time skills. There I said it. I really can’t follow my own schedule so I didn’t even try to schedule to be perfectly honest. Except maybe those that are only temporary features (like my pet project which I decided to post every Thursday). But other than that, I try not to schedul anything.

Hi everyone, welcome to PROJECT SIXTY-TWO also known as ‘Warner Centric Countdown to Ignite Me.’ But because the latter was long (although aptly named) I decided to rename it to Project 62. If you didn’t know the significance of the number I guess you haven’t read Unravel Me (and I’m closely looking at you with disdain) and if you haven’t read it you’re missing a whole lot. You should go buy the book, curl up in quiet space and read it. Anyways, what’s up with this little project of mine? If isn’t obvious I’m a huge fan (that’s really a

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and

Should we judge a person by the books he reads? Bookish Verbosity is a non-regular feature at AEROPAPERS where I talk about topics that are related to books, blogging and the community. I think we can all agree that we all have different taste. It’s just the way it is. Some work and some just didn’t. But that doesn’t mean we have the right to judge people on what they read. We all have been hearing this saying about books being judge by their covers. But how about readers being judge on what they read? Sometimes I’ve seen this kind
