The sleeping ‘titan’ has awakened.

7 years ago | filed under Graphic Novels
I think a post is warranted. It’s day 2 of not reading anything. I hadn’t touched a book in exactly 48 hours, which for me is really amazing surprising feat because ever since I’ve became this huge bookworm, my e-reader had never left my side. It’s always there with me whenever I wanted to read. While there was always a day that I couldn’t finish a book but I always read: be it pages, chapters, even just a paragraph. Bottom-line, I always read. Then this happened: I watched Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人Shingeki no Kyojin) Eren was so pissed. But I'm

On blogging decision: the blog…

7 years ago | filed under Fiction
I didn’t wake up one morning and told myself ‘I’m gonna be book blogger!’ But the idea had been in my mind for so long. Before this blog was officially launched, I have semi-personal/fandom blog but when I noticed that bookish talks seemed to have dominated the space, I rethink. I axed the other blog and made a brand new one, so this book blog was born. But it wasn’t an easy decision. Countless of times I asked myself ‘can I maintain it?’ ‘What if this book obsession was temporary?’ And lots more. I’m a type of person who doesn’t

Bookish Verbosity: Is book blogging…

7 years ago | filed under Fiction
Would you describe your experience as a book blogger difficult? Bookish Verbosity is a non-regular feature at AEROPAPERS where I talk about topics that are related to books, blogging, and the book community. This question was prompted by a tweet, I think it said: ‘blogging is hard.’ And I automatically asked myself a question: ‘is book blogging hard for me?’ Honestly, hard or difficult are one of those adjectives that I rarely describe with book blogging. But if it really necessary to answer that, I’m gonna say…no! But with that answer doesn’t mean that blogging for me is effortless. It

Book blogging trends that I…

I’m not the trendiest apple in the basket. I don’t easily succumb to trend, no matter how ‘cool’ it is, if I don’t feel it, I don’t follow it. I’m also the type of customer even if you give me your most impressive sales talk, you will not make me buy the product on the spot—if I don't need it (but I do find TV shopping ads entertaining). I’m quite stubborn that way, if that thing doesn’t float my boat, I won’t! It’s the same thing with blogging. There are lots of trends I’ve been seeing in the blogging community.

I know that I have stack upon stack of books to read. And now that I finally organized my ARCs (I’m actually good ‘til November. It’s embarrassing to know that I have that plenty of books to read and eventually need to review) it makes rereading seemingly impossible. But not on me, no. I still make time to reread books. But why, you ask? I already read ‘em; I’m just taking away my time that I should devote on my TBR pile. But for me there’s something about revisiting an old story, one that I know very well that make

How do you handle comments that ‘strongly’ disagree agree with your book review? Bookish Verbosity is a non-regular feature at AEROPAPERS where I talk about topics that are related to books, blogging, and the book community. Sometimes I take criticism of my work too much than what it supposed to, I admit that (but I deal it inwardly). And because I knew the feeling, I try to be very careful on what I write. That said, I’m not withholding my opinion or am I sugar -coating things; I’m just careful on what I’m going to say. I mostly do pro-con thing
