blog anniversary

6 years and 1 day

[caption id="attachment_3034" align="aligncenter" width="359"] image not mine[/caption] Happy 6 years and 1 day, It's A Wonderful Bookworld! Nope, I didn't forget (I almost did, but thank God for Facebook Memories) and I meant to write a celebratory post yesterday but work (as always) got in the way. There are a lot of things happening in my life right now, most of them work and home-related, that my blogging had to take the backseat. I know it's been at the backseat since last year and no matter how I wanted to be dutifully  updating this blog, I had to prioritize things. It's even come t...

Happy 5th birthday, book blog!

Let's celebrate! Wow, I can't believe it's been 5 years. And here I am, thinking if I should still continue with book blogging. (But I recently renewed my subscription so I guess I'm sticking around here for at least one more year.) Honestly, my life's had some adjustments this year that it's been difficult for me to keep up with my blogging duties. Reading (non-work related) has become the least of my priorities and this also holds true with blogging. However, I also feel sentimental when I think about not blogging anymore because, you see, it's been five years. Five years of reading and putt...

My blog turns 3 today: a celebration and a prayer

Happy third birthday, my dear blog! ♥ Three years. And I love how, through this blog, my reading habits and preferences (at least, when it comes to fiction) have expanded. From being a die-hard, staunch mystery/crime  reader, I have ventured into fantasy, speculative fiction, literary fiction, young adult, chicklit, even children's lit. The only genre I  struggle with would be the classics (but I am working on it, promise.) Also, through blogging, I have come to know fellow bloggers who share the same passion I have with reading and books, and through the years, friendships were formed. And fo...

Wednesday Diaries (and what I aim to do)

November is the month that I celebrate my blog's birthday (my blog will turn three on November 16, to be precise) and as part of the celebration, I am introducing another blog feature which, I hope, will keep me more interested motivated in writing more reviews -- at least the kind of reviews that my measly writing skills can come up with. I have noticed that most of my posts lately are memes -- not that I'm not enjoying them; I do! -- but I wanted to see/read more of my thoughts on a book I've read, too. I just wish that I could write faster as much as I read. The fact is that when ever I get...

The winner of my bloggy birthday giveaway is…

In celebration of this humble blog's 2nd anniversary, I decided a to hold a simple giveaway as a means of saying thank you to you, the readers and numerous blogger friends whom I met along the way. There had been good moments and bad for the past 2 years (especially before I changed hosts) but so far, the blog is doing okay. And I am glad. :) As I've said in the giveaway post, one of my aims this year and in the years to come is to improve my reading preferences and that includes reading more Filipino literature. One of the questions in the raffle is a recommendation of a good Pinoy book, and ...
