Some people like "childhood friends turn lovers", while other like more edgy stuff like "enemies to lover". When it comes to our favorite romance stories we have our de-facto, tried and tested, romantic tropes. ❤ And I am one of those people who can be easily swayed to read a story when these favorite tropes are present! 😘 I already shared my favorite romantic tropes here, but what makes me fall in love with the same formula is what I want to expand in this post. The thing is I'm not the hardest to please. 😅 In fact, I'm pretty

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, sometimes I want a fantasy book, sometimes contemporary and a lot of times, romance, haha. But in all seriousness I

I’m not big fan of horror movies—those purposely created to elicit fear. I’m no longer queasy due to the fact I’ve been exposed (too much I supposed) these past few months. I’ve been watching series with, you can say, quite violent theme; blood and gore do not bother me that much anymore. It's no longer a problem with me. Although among the pool of genre associated with the titles I had watched includes horror, I can say it was horror just by the theme and not it’s because it was frightening. And to be honest, I did enjoy it (at
