Recent Reads (May 25-31, 2020)

Time is a notion that has vanished to a lot of us since the start of the quarantine period. The months that we have been staying at home feel too long and yet it felt like time is passing by so fast. May is already over, and we are now on the 6th month of the year, already halfway there.

I have been slacking with my reading in the past week but I managed to finish 3 books for this week. I wish this reading kick would continue since I decided to join a readathon. Hopefully,  I will get a lot of reading done for this week too.

Now, let’s get into the book that I am currently reading and the books that I finished.

Campaign: The Epics of Enkidu – A Hero with Autism

Books like any other art has become a medium of raising awareness to the masses. From LGBTQ+ characters to a much heavier topics, stories have become diverse as years passed by. And seeing books as not only a means of pleasure, entertainment, and informative learning but also as a platform to reach out to others and spread awareness has made the reading experience more meaningful than it used to be.

In the past few years, we have seen diverse characters that do not only differ from their skin color, race, and gender. Not only that, but mental health issues have also been a topic for books. Diversity has helped us understand others whose experience has never been known to us and it also gives us something to connect to when we feel like others could not really understand us.

Now, we are presented once again with a literary piece that could help us understand what autism is like and how we can help spread awareness about it.

epics-of-enkidu-cover

The Epic of Enkidu is a comic that tells the story of a hero with autism. The story was inspired by the author’s nephew and The Epic of Gilgamesh, a Mesopotamian myth.

There is a fundraising campaign that the author created to help out the autism community. So by buying a copy of this book, you can be a big help to the autism community that the author will help out. There are other perks along with the book if you are interested.

Check out the video down below for more info about the campaign. And for more details on how you can help out, head over to The Epics of Enkidu Project.


I hope you guys would help out, if not in monetary means, kindly spread the word about it.

Please and thank you!

Recent Reads (May 11-17, 2020)

Happy Monday everyone! It’s a new week, which means it’s time to look back in the past week as to what I have read and what I am currently reading.

I have not been reading much lately, either through audiobooks or physical books. My sleeping pattern was quite messed up and I really can’t function much every day because I feel so sleepy, and yet I can’t sleep at night. Oh the struggle.

But I managed to finish 1 book and 1 novella. I am not pressuring myself that much because I am so ahead in my Goodreads goal that I feel confident to slow down a little. So I will quit the chitchat and dive into the books.

My Blogging Schedule

You probably wouldn’t care about this, AT ALL. But lately, I found myself sticking at a certain schedule. I am one of those person who rarely made plans because I am not good at sticking with it. However, I would not say no to taking advantage of this organized version of myself.

I found myself posting anything under the sun with my blogs. But now I decided to have a schedule of posting day. Will start this posting schedule next week because I’m still trying to figure out a schedule for this week. So here is my weekly schedule for posting blogs…

National Book Store Book Binge Bazaar!

Hello there fellow bookworms! Another book event has taken over our country. We only have the annual Manila International Book Fair or MIBF. But now, there is a Book Bazaar! Although, I think this would only happen this year.

20180209_170044_Film2[1]

This book bazaar was hosted by National Book Store, one of the biggest local bookstores in our country. This event would take place from Feb. 09 to 11, 2018 at SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 3. What’s exciting about this event is that the prices of the books are only 75, 175 or 275 pesos (approximately $2, $3 and $5). And in our country it is a very big deal!

So if you are a fellow bookworm who is also from the Philippines and is planning to go to this event, I have a dos and don’ts for you!

3 Legendary Series

They say that a good story would remain in someone’s heart for a very long time if it is well loved. I, as a reader, have read books that I surely love and would highly recommend to some. However, no matter how many books there are on my TBR pile, there is still a gnawing feeling inside me that’s craving for something more. And lately, I’m sating my cravings with classic books (or books that were published before the aged of Twilight and Hunger Games), but I would like to call them legendary books.

Before dropping the names of the 3 legendary books that I’m trying my hardest to give a good introduction, I would like to give a brief criteria as to why I consider them legendary.

  1. They are still popular and well-loved no matter how long they have been published or using the words of Taylor Swift, they never go out of style.
  2. The series became an inspiration not only to us readers, but also the other authors who aspired to write a book that would give the same impact to readers.
  3. They have set the bars in their own genre.

And without further ado, here are the 3 legendary books that I’ve been dying to read.
