    The genre that is called Gaslamp fantasy.

    One of my favorite manga series, Tegami Bachi by Hiroyuki Asada. I really thought it was just  fantasy, or maybe steampunk. Guess, I was teeny bit wrong on that! I try my best to categorize the books I read by its genre (I’m quite the OCD). And I like that people on goodreads do that, too. It’s easy to search a book that I would like to read if I know what genre in it. I’m moody type of reader,—

    Thoughts & rambles on TG:re

    I usually just go fangirl mode very time I read new chapter of Tokyo Ghoul:re. It’s one of the most amazing manga I’ve ever read. The sheer level of minutiae in the story always blows my mind. And chapter 7 just blew me out of the water once again. I can’t believe that we’re only 7 chapters in because a lot has happened already. I’m so happy with direction Ishida is taking, he’s not withholding a vital information to keep—

    “If we burn, you burn with us:” The Mockingjay Part 1

    Not enough flame? See, I wasn’t on board with the whole splitting Mockingjay Part 1 into two films. Why so? I thought I’m stating the obvious here but to clarify, I think, that the third installment doesn’t have enough material to cover two separate films. I love the first adaptation, surprisingly I love Catching Fire better even though I loved The Hunger Games. But I’m wary about this film. Honestly, I was really, really apprehensive on how they will stretch—

    Those bookish stuff that most bookish people have.

    I think we bookworms share many things aside from our obsessive love for books. And here I am presenting you some of them. (This data is purely from my observation only and meant to be just for fun!) Bookmarks And while I told you before that I rarely use it because I read on one sitting, many bookworms showcase their wide range of bookmarks. From fancy glittery ones to cute animal illustration, it is without a doubt nice to have—

    Naruhina & the ending of Naruto.

    How was like to ship a couple for such long time, like a decade, and get what you’ve always wanted? Blissful. I already put my very, very short two cents on the ending of probably one of the most iconic manga series of all time (and would love to write a decent one, in the next couple of days). Admit it haters, Kishimoto might not be consistent and we all raged on certain things pertaining the story (I still believe—

    I’m debunking shippers’ stereotypes!

    Remember Project Sixty-Two? One of the things I did for my ship! Huzzah! Ok, I confess I’m an avid shipper. Like if I saw great couple or potential couple, I ship them fanatically. Sometimes I go way beyond the call of an average shipper by building a fansite or writing a manifesto. That’s how I groove. Yes, maybe I’m way too invested on the love lives of these fictional characters than my own (or the lack of thereof) but there’s—

    It’s a monthly recap, yo!!!

    I know the months just flew by so quickly but I’m still astounded that it’s already November and 2015 is just around the corner. But today I brought you my monthly recap for what has happened here on my blog. I was about to complain on the lack of content here but I’m starting to sound like broken record so refrained myself and just get on the business! In a nutshell October went something like this: Left to right: The—
