*ARC* Book Review: Delight (Happiness #1) by Moras Dela Paz

Title: Delight
Author: Moras Dela Paz
Release Date: April 16, 2018

PLOT: 
You think you know someone…

Serena and Eli have known each other for as long as they can remember. Their parents are good friends and all but that doesn’t necessarily mean they have to get along as well. Serena always thought that being a basketball prodigy destined for the pros has made Eli obnoxious and she finds his inflated ego out of this world.

However, with failing grades hindering Eli’s road into the pros, Serena helps him out of kindness and goodwill. Just kidding! Truth be told, she prefers to use her free time baking rather than endure Eli’s unpleasant company. Until her parents “ask” her nicely to tutor Eli, the ever-obedient Serena, afraid of being a disappointment, reluctantly agrees.

As the two of them spend more and more time together, they learn that even if they’ve known each their whole lives there are some things about each other that is just a delightful surprise.

REVIEW: 
Disclaimer: I received an ARC in exchange for an HONEST review. 

Upon receiving a copy, I flew threw the pages really quickly because the story just captured my attention. The author used the enemies to lovers trope in a fun and light-hearted way. I like her way of writing relationships in this book. The relationship between Eli and Serena is adorable and cute not only that but their relationship is written in a very realistic way. It was not rushed. It was developed in a slow manner and I like how there was courting involve. The author really imbibed some Philippine culture in this book, which is not present in a lot of romance novels by Filipinos. 

Furthermore, the relationship between Kyle and Serena is also great because it is so relatable for me because I do have a lot of guy friends and their friendship means a lot for me. I like how the author wrote their relationship in a purely platonic way. It shows that a boy and a girl can be friends without any romantic feelings involve. Also Serena's relationship with her friends is also very realistically written. Not all friendship are all rainbows and butterflies, there will be some falling out in some point but it is your decision if you are going to fight for your friendship or end it. Another important value featured in this book is family. This story presented strong family value with Serena, Eli, and Kyle's family. While reading I really saw how close they are with one another and despite the trials that comes in their way, in the case of Eli's family it was a health scare, they remain strong together. 

Finally, I want to discuss Serena's development in this book. Serena grew a lot in this story from a timid and shy girl who was afraid to speak to her parents about her dreams to a strong and outspoken one. She is not afraid to chase her dreams and she works hard for it to become into a reality. Overall, Serena is a relatable character because like her I like to bake and cook. I also suffer from body image issue, which led me to start going to gym. I started doing various exercise like Yoga and Muay Thai. To assert, this book is more than a romance novel. It is a story about friends, family, and growing up. This book tackles real life situations that one might encounter such as teen or unexpected pregnancy, falling out with friends, college choices, body image issues, and speaking up. I really recommend this to book especially to high school students because they will really learn a lot from this book.

Zoe's 24 Readathon Spring 2018 Wrap Up

Like what I said in my previous post, my goal was to read 5 books/graphic novel. I started reading, The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash at midnight. It was 252 pages and finished it at 3 am. I really liked the book and gave it 4/5 stars. It was a fun and quick read, and I definitely relate to the main character in a way that he has his fandoms that he is obsessed about, which is what I also do.  



My second book/graphic novel was Cat Burglar Black by Richard Sala with 126 pages. I was disappointed with this one because I really like the plot but the execution was poor. There was no character development and the ending was rushed. I gave this 3/5 stars and I finished reading it at 5:18 am.


Then I took a little break and slept for a couple hours and woke up at 10am. I played a but of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. After that started reading Batgirl: Badgirl of Burnside by Cameron Stewart, which has 176 pages. I finished reading it while getting a wax 2:52pm and I gave it 4/5 stars. I liked that it is focused on Barbara Gordon's teenage life while balancing on being a superhero. I also love the artwork. I feel like it truly reflect on the story and the attention to detail is phenomenal. 

The fourth book was All in Pieces by Suzanne Young. I read about 81 pages of this before falling asleep for an hour and when I woke up I went on my daily run. After that I got ready and pack my things for my last minute trip to Laguna to visit my grandmother so I did not get the chance to read again. What I did was listen to an audiobook instead. I listened to about 90 minutes of The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien, which is 45 pages of listening. 

All in all, I read 680 pages and I did not meet my goal of 5 books (1092 pages).

February 2018 Wrap Up



1. Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland
Goodreads Rating: 4.21 stars

A sexy new standalone from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.
He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.
When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.
You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.
He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.
Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.
Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy.
Oops. My mistake.
Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.
I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?
That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.
Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.
I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.
Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.
This was going to be interesting…





2. Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland
Goodreads Rating: 4.14 stars

Four consecutive weeks on the New York Times and #1 in Romance.

It started out like any other morning on the train.
Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.
Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?
Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.
I might have picked it up.
I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.
I might have held onto the mystery man's phone for days―until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.
So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office.
I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
I didn't expect him to text back.
I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn't expect to fall for him―all before we even met.
The two of us couldn't have been any more different.
Yet, you know what they say about opposites.
When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract―we consumed each other.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn't prepared for where I'd wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

3. Fighting Destiny (The Fae Chronicles #1) by Amelia Hutchins 
Goodreads Rating: 4.09 stars

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae—beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?
Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh—did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae... every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface—not even me.



4. The Baller by Vi Keeland
Goodreads Rating: 4.11 stars

The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men's locker room.
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.
And by all, I don't mean he told me any of his secrets.
No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera.
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby--screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don't date players.
And it's not because I'm one of the few women working in the world of professional football.
I'd date an athlete.
It's the other kind of player I don't date.
You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.

Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right? Let's face it. It never is.
There's a story between once upon a time and happily ever after...
And this one is ours.


5. Black Swan Affair by K.L. Kreig
Goodreads Rating: 4.3 stars

I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.

The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.

Killian Shepard.

Shep.

We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.

He’d be back.
He was always meant to be mine.

He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.

So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.

I got my revenge.
I married his brother, Kael.

Now we’re one big happy f*cking family.




6. Settling the Score (The Summer Games #1) by R.S. Grey
Goodreads Rating: 4.04 stars

As an Olympic rookie, Andie Foster has spent far more time in her cleats than between the sheets. For 21 years, her Friday nights have consisted of blocking shots rather than taking them. But now that she's landed in Rio, she's ready to see for herself if the rumors about the Olympic Village are true:
• The athletes are all sex-crazed maniacs...
• The committee passes out condoms like candy...
• The games continue long after the medals have been handed out...As Andie walks the line between rumor and reality, she's forced into the path of Frederick Archibald, a decorated Olympic swimmer and owner of a sexy British accent--too bad he's unavailable in a way that "it's complicated" doesn't even begin to explain.

In other words: off limits.

It doesn't matter that he has abs that could bring peace to the Middle East and a smile that makes even the Queen blush; Andie fully intends on keeping her focus on the soccer field. But the Village is small. Suffocating. Everywhere Andie goes, Freddie happens to be there--shirtless, wet from the pool, and determined to show her a whole new meaning of the phrase "international affairs".




7. Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress #1) by Jeaniene Frost 
Goodreads Rating: 4.18 stars


Flirting with the Grave...

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father - the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner - are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.




8. One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress #2) by Jeaniene Frost 

Goodreads Rating: 4.31 stars 


You can run from the grave, but you can’t hide…

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She’s still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again.

Spring 2018 Readathon by Zoe TBR

Despite being busy, I've decided to join Zoe of @ReadbyZoe on youtube's Readathon Round 5, which will be happening on March 3, 2018 (Saturday). The readathon will start at midnight to 11:59 of your time zone. This readathon is great because I have a pretty ambitious reading challenge this year with 120 books and I think that this readathon will help me read more. 

Here is a video of Zoe announcing the Readathon. 

For this readathon, I will be trying read a lot since I have acquired a lot of books in the month of February (see book haul here) and I want to get through them asap. I will also be trying to read graphic novels in between books for variety and so that I won't get bored that much. 

1. Batgirl: Batgirl of Burnside by Cameron Stewart (Goodreads Author) (Writer), Brenden Fletcher, Jared K. Fletcher (Letterer), Maris Wicks (Colorist), Babs Tarr (Illustrator)


Barbara Gordon is no stranger to dusting herself off when disaster strikes, so when a fire destroys everything she owns, she spots the opportunity for a new lease on life – and seizes it! Following the rest of Gotham City’s young adults to the hip border district of Burnside, Barbara sets about building an all-new Batgirl…and discovers new threats preying on her peers! As the new hero of Burnside, Batgirl gets started by facing twin sister assassins on motorcycles!


2. The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leger

In this ode to all the things we gain and lose and gain again, seventeen-year-old Penelope Marx curates her own mini-museum to deal with all the heartbreaks of love, friendship, and growing up.

Welcome to the Museum of Heartbreak.

Well, actually, to Penelope Marx’s personal museum. The one she creates after coming face to face with the devastating, lonely-making butt-kicking phenomenon known as heartbreak.

Heartbreak comes in all forms: There’s Keats, the charmingly handsome new guy who couldn’t be more perfect for her. There’s possibly the worst person in the world, Cherisse, whose mission in life is to make Penelope miserable. There’s Penelope’s increasingly distant best friend Audrey. And then there’s Penelope’s other best friend, the equal-parts-infuriating-and-yet-somehow-amazing Eph, who has been all kinds of confusing lately.

But sometimes the biggest heartbreak of all is learning to let go of that wondrous time before you ever knew things could be broken.

3. Cat Burglar Black by Richard Sala

K. Westree: Teen Cat Burglar

When K. Westree arrivse at Bellsong Academy, she thinks she's left her cat-burgling past behind her. But K. soon discovers the school has a mystery of its own, a hidden treasure left behind by its founder, and she's the only one who has a hope of finding it. As she resumes her cat-burgling in an attempt to discover the school's secrets, K. begins to question if a normal life is really what she wants.

4. All in Pieces by Suzanne Young

“Anger-management issues.”

That’s how they classified Savannah Sutton after she stuck a pencil in her ex-boyfriend’s hand because he mocked her little brother, Evan, for being disabled. That’s why they sent her to Brooks Academy—an alternative high school that’s used as a temporary detention center.

The days at Brooks are miserable, but at home, life is far more bleak. Savvy’s struggling to take care of her brother since her mom left years ago, and her alcoholic dad can’t be bothered. Life with Evan is a constant challenge, but he’s also the most important person in the world to Savvy.

Then there’s Cameron, a new student at Brooks with issues of his own, a guy from a perfect family that Savvy thought only existed on TV. Cameron seems determined to break through every one of the walls Savvy’s built around herself—except if she lets herself trust him, it could make everything she’s worked so hard for fall apart in an instant.

And with her aunt seeking custody of her brother and her ex-boyfriend seeking revenge, Savvy’s fighting to hold all the pieces together. But she’s not sure how much tighter she can be pulled before she breaks completely.

5. The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love
by Sarvenaz Tash

                                                 


Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. Archie and Veronica. Althena and Noth.…Graham and Roxy?

Graham met his best friend, Roxy, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since.

But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.

When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year’s New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He’s got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be…even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones.

February 2018 Book Bargain Haul (28 books)

February is not just the month of love but it is also the month of book sales. I attended two book sales this month, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale and the National Bookstore Book Binge Bazaar, and I got 28 books. It's the month of love so why not celebrate my love for books by buying a lot books (this is what I tell myself trying to justify buying 28 books). It looked like I bought 1 book a day this month.









 I also got The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson and The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen (199 pesos each)


 So, that is all for my February haul. This is probably the biggest haul I have ever done and I am very happy because of my growing book collection.

Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2018 Haul Part 2

I need more shelf space or buy a new bookshelf. 

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2018 has officially ended and I was fortunate enough to go back and this time I went with my whole family. I said that I was not going to buy anything since I already bought 15 books the first time I went. But my parents were kind enough to buy me more books.


My sister getting some medicine books in the reference section.
We went around 11pm on a Sunday (January 18, 2018) and there were still a lot of people despite having work or school tomorrow. Also there were a lot of books gone in many of the tables were already, especially the young adult section, so I missed out on some of the titles that I was hoping to get.

My dad reading a WWII history book in the History section.

Found this Agatha Christie comic book. 
Look at my dog, Leia. She is so photogenic. 
Moving on to my haul, I got 5 items; 2 graphic novels, 1 novel, and 2 travel guide... 
                         

My brother (who is 23 years old by the way) got this Where's Wally? Collection, which contains 7 books for 1,000+ plus. 


 Wonder Woman: The War Years 1941-1945 for 680 pesos

Wonder Woman, warrior princess of the Amazons, is among the most famous heroes of all time. From her introduction in 1941, she has been a shining example of feminism and the strength of womankind. But what was her role during the wartime of her creation? Wonder Woman: The War Years 1941-1945 details how she used her super speed, strength, and Golden Lasso of Truth during World War II to bring peace and justice to a turbulent world.

 The Joker: A Visual History of the Clown Prince of Crime for 480 pesos only 

A comprehensive look at the greatest comic book villain . . . ever. Since his first appearance in 1940’s Batman #1, the Joker stands alone as the most hated, feared, and loved villain in the DC Universe. Though his true origins may be unknown, the Clown Prince of Crime’s psychotic appearances in hundreds of comic books has shaped the way we look at Batman, comic books, and ourselves. Indeed, a hero is only as good as his nemesis, so the Joker’s heinous crimes, including murdering the second Robin and paralyzing Batgirl, have elevated Batman to the highest levels of crime-fighting, and we, the readers, to the finest levels of quality pop-culture entertainment.
The Joker is the first retrospective chronicling one of the most groundbreaking and game-changing villains of all time, and contains images from his more than seventy years in comics by comic book artists and writers such as Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Jerry Robinson, Dick Sprang, Grant Morrison, Dave McKean, Neil Gaiman, Geoff Johns, Alan Moore, Brian Bolland, Brian Azzarello, Bruce Timm, and Paul Dini. Also included are images from his various film, television, animated, and video game incarnations, such as the timeless interpretations by Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, and Heath Ledger, who won his posthumous Oscar for his portrayal of the Joker in 2008’s The Dark Knight. This book is a must-have for fans and anyone who wants to die laughing.
 The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike #2) by Robert Galbraith (pseudonym), J.K Rowling for 230 pesos. 

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days—as he has done before—and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives—meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced.

When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before...



Insight Guides Greece for 230 pesos





In conjunction with the Discovery television channel, this guide first published in 1987 provides general information about Greek history and culture and practical tips about visiting.
