Today I have something sci-fi for you! We’re featuring Dark Genius by author H. Peter Alesso!

At first I wasn’t so sure about joining the book blast for this book, so I did a quick research on the author and found out that he’s a scientist and has written a few space opera/adventure books that look interesting. So I thought, okay lemme help out with this one. Also, the blurb mentions the “God particle” so that really caught my attention. Yayyy.

Read more about the book below and check out the book blast giveaway! Cheers! Continue reading “Spotlight and Giveaway: Dark Genius by H Peter Alesso”

Girls Weekend Getaway: Bantayan Island, Cebu

I flew out to Cebu the other weekend to hang out with my girlfriends for our “not always annual but we try” annual girls weekend getaway. We went to Bantayan Island, which has one of the most gorgeous beaches in the country (and the world!).

The weekend was a blast, as usual. You know how it is when you meet up with your long time friends, right? Anytime you get together it’s pretty much all laughs and crazy antics. And we were all due for some much-needed girl time and beach fix, so it was a great vacay from our usual lives.

Anyway, now I shall ramble and share some photos, yeah? Fair warning: this post turned out suuuper long. ;)

Anyway, I posted a list of my ‘favorite minimalist blog design’ several few years ago and I think it’s time for another one! So, here you go! Yayyy.

Blog Tour: Blood Magic by Danielle Rose

Blood Magic Teaser 1

Hi, guys. Yup, I’m back again for another promo post about Blood Magic by author Danielle Rose!

I still haven’t finished the first book. Because I’m a terrible, terrible reader and blogger. This fantasy series is really quite interesting, I swear. I mean, it has vampires and witches! I’m just in such a tiring and terrible reading rut right now. I just have no mood to read anything and I hate it. I mean, I’ve been trying to read three awesome books, including Blood Rose, for a while now and I’m still nowhere near finishing any of them. I hate this rut.

Anyway, enough about that. Read more about Blood Magic below!
