My List of Disappointment : Books I Love LESS Than I Hoped I Would

SPARKLING LETTERS BOOK BLOG- TOP 10 TUESDAY BOOKS I LOVED LESS THAN I HOPED I WOULD.jpg

Hello everyone! ♥

It’s been a while since the last time I did a Top Ten Tuesday but this week topic just basically called to me! It’s Ten Books I Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would. I’ve read 21 books this year but only two of them are 5 stars. This month I haven’t even rated a book 5 stars

Being let down so often inspired me to make a list of books I loved less than I hoped I would. It was a coincidence that this week topic is similar. True story, I swear! 😛 But BEWARE, I’ll be dragging a lot of people’s favorites. It’s okay for you to be upset with my choice, it’s okay if you disagree and want to discuss it, but there’s no need to be angry or fight over favorite books, alright? 😉 Anyway, it’s definitely more than 10. Here you go! Continue reading

Authors Whose Books I’ll Buy Without Even Caring What They Are About

SPARKLING LETTERS BOOK BLOG- AUTO BUY AUTHORS.jpg

Hello everyone! Welcome to another list/recommendation post ♥

Today we’ll be talking about authors whose books I’ll buy without even caring what they are about, a.k.a my auto buy authors! I have a lot of favorite authors, but are they all auto buy? Not necessarily. Auto buy authors are even better than favorite authors because just like I said, I wouldn’t even read the synopsis before deciding if I’m gonna read the book. I have blind faith in their writing 😛

In order to be an auto buy for me, authors have to had released more than one book and all of them have to be equally great, or at least the newer one is better than the debut. All of the books also need to have something remarkable that would make me crave for more, it’s either the characters, the plot, the writing, or all of them. Continue reading

Hello everyone! ♥

Welcome back to another recommendation post! 😀 We’re well into the rainy season where I live and you know what would be the perfect thing to do during a rainy day? That’s right, curling up in bed with books! Actually, it’ll be the perfect thing to do in ANY weather. Anywayyy, during days like these, I always prefer to read contemporary books over any other genres, preferably books that are sad and will break my heart. Therefore today we’ll be talking about books that will smash our heart right out of its place… figuratively, of course 😛 Continue reading

Say Goodbye to 2016, My Best Reading Year So Far!

sparkling-letters-book-blog-say-goodbye-to-my-best-reading-year-so-far

Hello everyone! ♥

I can’t believe that 2016 will be over in 4 days! Is it just me or time really goes faster as we grow older? 😛 this has been such a roller coaster year, a lot of good as well as bad stuffs had happened to me, but more about that on my monthly recap. Today we’ll be talking about BOOKS, obviously.

2016 has been an awesome reading year for me. I read wayyy more than the past three years combined 😂 the thing is I was too busy to read during my university years that I only managed to finish 2-3 books each month. This year, however, was more laid back because I had no more credits to take and only had to work on my thesis. Now let’s take a look at my year in books! Continue reading

Book Recommendations for the Notorious Shipper Out There! <3

SPARKLING LETTERS BOOK BLOG- BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE NOTORIOUS SHIPPER OUT THERE.jpg

I would like to say that I want to read books that don’t focus on romance, but that would be a lie. The truth is, I’ve always been a huge shipper 😛 You might remember that my first few years of reading journey were filled with tons and tons of manga. My first two mangas were Detective Conan and Doraemon and I shipped Ran and Shinichi so badly ♥ and then I watched and read Naruto and I shipped Sasuke and Sakura. I have to admit, that ship took a lot of patience (and frustration) on my part until they finally got together.

But still, I got to ship #sorrynotsorry Continue reading

Can’t 2017 Come Faster? Because I NEED to Read These Most Anticipated Books! <3

SPARKLING LETTERS BOOK BLOG- MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2017.jpg

Okay, not true.

I don’t want 2017 to come faster. I mean, new year always comes with great expectation and I feel like I’m not ready for another set of expectations. Also, no matter how crappy this year has been for others, I still feel like this is one of the best year I’ve had so far. But let’s not get philosophical 😛 I’m here, as always, to talk about books ♥

In term of books, 2017 seems SO PROMISING! So many (hopefully) great books from my favorite authors will be released next year and I just can’t wait anymore! So here goes some of my most anticipated books for the first half of 2017 ♦ only for the first half because I’m linking this post with Top Ten Tuesday (though it’s obviously more than ten but who’s counting?) and most books released on the second half of 2017 don’t even have covers or specific release dates yet 😂 Continue reading
