Looking for a place to buy your next sticker sheets? I recently discovered these local shops- and they are worth checking out!
Apart from reading and occasionally watching Netflix shows, one of the things that made my sanity intact during this pandemic is journaling.
I am still learning about a bunch of stuff about books and reading, and one of the recent things I became fully aware of is the #OwnVoices. Based on what I read, it started as a Twitter movement. #Ownvoices books are books by authors writing from their own experiences. May it be about race, sexuality, illness, identity and other related experiences that authors were able to translate or share through their written works.
I know this is going to be a different reading month for me, but I am excited! I do not know what to expect especially on the books that are totally new to me. I am thankful that we have this kind of readathon because #SupportLocal ❤
I am not really a fan of thriller/horror stories, but what I like the most about Come Join the Murder is the narration. For a debut, I saw how the author added her own style in story telling, and even the gruesome moments were described perfectly
This book made me tear up, and those last pages of the book is what made me drop the additional star to make this a five-star read. Majority of my reviews rely on my emotions and attachments towards the story and the characters, and the last part definitely did it for me.
This Young Adult book takes place in Seoul, South Korea and it revolved around the mythical creature Gumiho- a nine-tailed fox. An urban fantasy story set in the current time sounds really interesting, not to mention my high expectations towards the romance of the main characters Jihoon and Gu Miyoung.
I will just be dumping my post-FRIENDS thoughts, because regardless of how much I tell people about it, writing it down is still the best way to let it out.
Asha are not simple witches who can just cast curses and the likes. At a young age, they are trained to have good skills in dancing, singing, playing musical instruments, and yielding magical runes. They are taught different languages, history, literature and basic skills in medicine and combat. On a regular day, they are expected to be good in entertaining noble people and royalties with their performances and communication skills, but beyond it, they have duties they need to perform to maintain the peace and order within their kingdoms.
It's my firs time to read about Russian folklore, and despite my tongue being twisted a bit for trying to pronounce the unfamiliar names and terms, I still find it really fascinating!
