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.

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. :)
