It’s that time of the year again in my country where book lovers gather in one place and empty their wallets while hoarding too many books. Last September 13 to 17, 2017, the 38th Manila International Book Fair a.k.a. MIBF – the only book fair event in my country – took place at SMEX in MOA. But unlike those book fairs in other countries, the only perks in our book fair is the 20% off from the original book prices of all the books. No ARC copies and two or three foreign authors who are having their book signing.

“… everyone knows you never find love when you go looking for it. You have to wait for it to find you.”
It will take a Christmas miracle for two very different souls to find each other in this perfectly festive fairy tale of New York!
Hopeless romantic Eva Jordan loves everything about Christmas. She might be spending the holidays alone this year, but when she’s given an opportunity to house-sit a spectacular penthouse on Fifth Avenue, she leaps at the chance. What better place to celebrate than in snow-kissed Manhattan? What she didn’t expect was to find the penthouse still occupied by its gorgeous—and mysterious—owner.
Bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade is having the nightmare before Christmas. With a deadline and the anniversary of his wife’s death looming, he’s isolated himself in his penthouse with only his grief for company. He wants no interruptions, no decorations and he certainly doesn’t appreciate being distracted by his beautiful, bubbly new housekeeper. But when the blizzard of the century leaves Eva snowbound in his apartment, Lucas starts to open up to the magic she brings…This Christmas, is Lucas finally ready to trust that happily-ever-afters do exist?

“Does what makes you different from everyone else make you less of a living, breathing human being?”
What does it mean to be normal?
It’s such a loaded word, with about a billion different meanings, and every one of them makes Ava Collins sick.
At 17, Ava has been deaf for as long as she can remember. She grew up constantly reminded that she wasn’t – and couldn’t – be normal, that she needed to be ‘fixed’, but it wasn’t until she met Theo De Vries that she learned the truth.
Deaf doesn’t mean broken, it means different. And different isn’t a bad thing.
2017 is a very though year for me. My grandmother passed away last April and I’m not really into doing things after that. After the struggle of adjusting from my unemployed self to the stressful employed individual that I am now in the first quarter of the year. This second quarter was very challenging for many reasons that I would not specify except for what I mentioned earlier about my grandmother.
However, I feel like I’m figuring out my way into working and reading because I managed to read 8 books in three months compared to 4 books from the last three months. Although some of the books that I read are novellas and graphic novel, I feel so accomplished.
I’m excited to share them with you so let’s get into it!
