SYNOPSIS:

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatiaβ€”and possibly the known universeβ€”is in their hands.


But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.

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,Β 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.

Quarterly Wrap-up (January-March 2017)

Hi! I’ve been trying to blog for the whole week but to no success. I always end up sleeping in my bed whenever I got home. Thank goodness for weekend.

So here I am with a wrap-up for the books that I have read from January to March. I only read 4 books for 3 months. It’s quite shocking even in my part. And I’m behind my reading challenge in goodreads. On the other hand, I’m enjoying myself with reading and relaxing so I feel like it is not that bad that I’m not reading much lately.

And before I rumble other stuff in this wrap-up in an attempt to make it longer, I present to you the books that I finished in the past three months.

Book Haul!

Hello everyone! It’s been so long since my last blog. Lots of changes happened in my life in the span of 3 months and I’m thankful for those changes. However, I am still adjusting and finding time to schedule blogging, reading and just relaxing. And as a part of those changes, I would only do quarterly book hauls because I am not hoarding as much books as I do before. And as a proof for that, I only accumulated 11 books in a span of 3 months. I’m so proud of myself!

So before I talk about other things that are not really related with my book haul, I would like to present to you the books that I acquired from January to March!
