Hello, fellow book lovers! I hope today’s fine.
This blog was created because I wanted to talk about the books I have read and to give an honest review about them. But before I publish my first book review, I’d like to introduce myself to you first.
I’m 30 years old (upon creation of this blog post) and I started reading books when I was in College. I liked reading before that, but that was my turning point.
My passion was drawing, but I did not get the chance to pursue it because of financial issues so I resorted to the second thing I wanted to do back then – improve my English and be confident about the language so I decided to go for Mass Communications.
During my 4th year, a professor told us to read one book and re-tell the story in front of the class. The book that was assigned to my team was the Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. The other teams got good book listings too, such as The Da Vinci Code and Digital Fortress.
That was when I fell in love with the Harry Potter series. I borrowed the other books so I can read and follow the story. After that, I decided to read the other books that were assigned to the other teams. Before I know it, I was already obsessed with reading.
These are the books that I currently own (if my memory serves me right):

I will try to publish a review of the book/s that I recently read so it’s still fresh from my mind.
Also, if any of you have books suggestions, please do let me know. I am constantly on the lookout for a good book to binge over.
Thank you, folks! 🙂
