    I was going to name this post, ‘reassessing your brand’ but it sounded so professional and this was anything but. But I was doing some deep pondering for the last few weeks about the direction of this blog. I think I’m feeling a bit of falling off with book blogging. This is far worse than me being a little bit behind on reading. In my almost five years of book blogging, I never thought I’ll be less enthusiastic to blog.—

    I ain’t history buff but love to read ’em!

    I think my reconciliation with my biggest passion—anime & manga—led me to opening many doors. And while I said that I was already huge otaku before I was still quite selective of what I’ll watch or read. There are genres that I’m not comfortable to try. One of them is historical-fiction and high-fantasy. I implemented this mindset with books as well. But as a bookworm I’m more lenient to genres I normally brushoff. So I guess that is why when—

    In which I ransacked the shelves!

I don’t know my way to cheat out just to accomplish this 😉 But the time did come, Shanelle of The Art of Escapism (thanks!) tagged me and now I searched carefully at the books at home to see if I have those worthy of showcasing!

    Hello, July! & June Happenings!

    Entering second half of the year is simultaneously amazing and unnerving. 😯 If were to describe my blogging this June is that it was the exact opposite of May where special or feature posts were abundant compare to reviews. In fact, I still have two posts written down but didn’t publish it because well, lazy! When will I ever learn to balance this hobby?! Never? June in a Nutshell Me, my emotions, & these fictional characters., Some Filipino words to—
