Here’s the bittersweet cover of Another Day 🙂

What's the story all about

Synopsis:

Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person…wasn’t Justin at all.

In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.

What's the story all about

Synopsis:

It’s nothing personal. You’re just part of the transaction.

Cameron Briggs always wondered what the strange birthmark on his shoulder meant. For his entire life, it seemed he was never meant to be anything special, that is, until the day it happened. Something dormant inside of him awoke.

In the near future, birthright theft is on the rise, a vast network of dealers offering desperate buyers the chance to steal a more desirable next life. Their power and influence is absolute, with little standing in their way. However, unexpected anomalies in the process endow unique abilities to their victims who, once identified, are offered one chance – to save our world or destroy it, one Unborn child at a time.

With the truth shrouded in conspiracy, Emma Jennings, a troubled but strong-minded young agent with a defiant reputation, is determined to prove these crimes exist. But in order to accomplish her goal, she’ll need to find the one victim who can turn the tide of her war.

The truth will be terrifying.

Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all.

The time for lies is over.

My first ‘book signing event’ ever! #CTCinPH

Unforgettable and remarkable experience? Yes! 

Not all people will understand the bliss and excitement that we bookworms felt during book signing events. It was like seeing your favorite boy band or meeting your favorite artists/idols. It’s all the same to us. We can also feel the rush of excitement flowing through our veins, the agony of waiting for more than 24 hours just to get first in line, jumping and screaming like a kid begging for attention…well a fan is a fan right?

20th!!! Yehey :)

I only got three books, since I don’t have enough money </3 haha Ugly Love, The Light in the Wound and Confess.

I’ve been reading books ever since I was a kid, then I stopped doing it when I was in high school because, well, I don’t know what happened to me at that time 😦 Then I got back my bookish consciousness by the time when I was in college (YAY! FINALLY), and that’s how I started again for becoming so addicted with books. 🙂 Continue reading
