About my Blog

I am Bernadette and I consider myself a bookworm. This blog is about books, the books I've read, about me. Mostly, as I have to tell, you will know me on the books I am reading. I am what I read. This is me.

Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav

It was on last week of October when Love and Misadventure caught my attention. The book was all over Tumblr and with curiosity, I decided to search for that book. 

Realizing that this book is a compilation of love poem that describes every misadventure and real love relationship - I shared this to some of my friends. Reading those short poems from the web, I really felt like buying it. 

Thanks to a special someone, I got my own copy of the book last 27th of October, 2013. Now that i'm done reading it, I would say that there's NO regret on having this book. 

Love & Misadventure by Lang Leav

The poems may be short but it has all the feelings. Lang Leav really did a great job on compiling all love and misadventure on every relationship and life in a single book. I may be having a happy relationship but still, I can relate with what I read. 

If I were to recommend this, I will surely do and rate this book from 9 out of 10. Well, yours truly is really the emotional one. After all, its about love - one of the best topic to talk about. :)

Some of my favorite from the book:

Before There Was You - Part 3 Love
Lost Things - Part 2 The Circus of Sorrrow
Rogue Planets - Part 2 The Circus of Sorrrow

Harry Potter Complete Series - New Cover

It was a chance for me when I knew that Scholastics have released a new set of Harry Potter Books for J.K. Rowling Anniversary. It was a new cover but more artistic. It was always been my dream to buy a complete set but the price even before was too expensive. And when the movie has ended, a complete series becomes harder to find.

When there was a book sale on National Book Store, I hoped for a discounted set but only found the most expensive set - costs almost P7,000.00. Good this about it? It has its own chest. Which really will be my next target for the next five years. :)

In the middle of September, I found a complete set of Harry Potter with its newest cover under my table. It was a gift! And I can't believe that someone really have wanted to give me this. I was really thankful. I don't know whether to read the books or keep them as is.

But one thing is for sure, one out of the seven books on my bucket list has finally arrived on my book shelf. :)

Thanks to my Santa Claus :) An early Christmas Gift for me.

An Excerpt from the Book T.I.B.O.K

T.I.B.O.K (Heartbeat of the Filipino Lesbian) is a compilation of lesbian stories shared by some Filipinas made possible to become a book through Anna Leah Sarabia.

When I saw the book, I was really mesmerized and really wanted to buy it myself, the only problem I had that time was that, the book looks old and too expensive on the way it looks. I searched the web for the nearest bookstore in my hometown to see if there's another copy of this book in good condition. Sadly, the book I found in NBS was the only one.

While I was holding T.I.B.O.K., I was having a second thought, but realizing that it might be the last and final copy, I followed my urge to buy it. Now that I have done reading the book, I found out that being a Lesbian in the Philippines is really hard. Somehow, other culture may accept us, but not by our own countrymen. We are bound to follow the roots of where we came from. We must be who we are by the religion we are embracing.

Books on my Bucket List

Since I  got my second job, I promised to myself that I will give my self the privilege or I'd rather say, the reward of buying me a book. Either for a month or every cut-off. And now, I've been craving for some books I really wanted my bookshelf to have.

What ended me with this? Some online bookstore! Haha. Gosh, if I am lucrative enough, I might have stolen those books. Anyways, here are some books included on my bucket list (hope to have them till this year ends) :

 * The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
    Price: PHP 585.00
    My view: I loved the book because of its cover, plus I am really curious about the definition of real love, though I think I already knew it.

 * Between Mom and Jo by Julie Anne Peters
    Price: I forgot
    My view: I was holding this book a little while and fighting with the urge of buying it, now I regret it. Choosing between your parents, who would you choose?

 * Define "Normal" by Julie Anne Peters
    Price: PHP 315.00
    My view: From the title itself, it really is confusing. In this fast changing world, how can we really define "normal"? Tricky!

 * Why we broke up by Daniel Handler
    Price: PHP 489.00
    My view: The book cover was good! And i don't know, the book caught my attention.

 * Rage: A Love Story
    Price: PHP 350.00
    My view: A felt a strong urge of buying it. I don't know WHY.

  * Seriously... I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres
   Price: PHP 585.00
   My view: I have a feeling that this one is amazing and funny as well.

  * Harry Potter Complete Set
  Price: 2,975.00
  My view: It was my DREAM. Gosh I will buy this, I swear! :)

There, at last i finished it. For now, these are the books that I really want to own. Hope to have them all. :)

Its all about GARFIELD

Garfield and yours truly. :) 
First thing's first. I am madly in love with Garfield. Since when? Uhmm 3rd grade I think! Long enough before I realize that all I wanted in my room aside by books is this fat orange tabby cat.

Ask me why I love him when he is lazy, bad, fat and always annoy Odie? Well, I really don't know. Garfield is cute. Perfect. We both love lasagna, sleeping and well, doing nothing. :) My dream has always been to have any thing that he has a picture of.
