Hey guys! Close your eyes and imagine, you’re attending a conference with a panel consisting of your favourite authors or even your favourite fictional characters. Last week, Eventbrite inspired me to do just that with a project they’re working on. And because we never get to have foreign authors coming to Malaysia for events (well, Sarah J Maas did came last year I think), I went crazy with this.
For those who may or may not know, Eventbrite is the largest self-service ticketing platform in the world that helps people find and plan events. Interested in hosting your own conference? Check out Eventbrite’s Conference Planning Page for useful and free tools. Continue reading “My Dream Author Panel”

Annyeong~ 🙂 It is Wednesday, so time for another Top 5 Wednesday post. I didn’t post one last week, so shh.
Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads discussion group created by Lainey, but now moderated by Sam. This week’s topic is Characters You Used to Love but Don’t Anymore. It doesn’t just mean characters that you now hate, it can also mean characters that you don’t love as much as before too.

I’m here again with Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and hopefully I can recommend something great to you guys. Also, let’s just ignore the fact that I was supposed to post this last week.
Also, ignore my ugly banner. It’s so late now, and I can’t experiment and make something better. Continue reading “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue #2 (Oct. 24 ’16)”
Heya, guys~ 🙂 It is once again time for Top 5 Wednesday.
Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group in Goodreads, created by Lainey, and currently moderated by Sam. This week’s topic is Favourite Non-Canon Ships.
These are the couples you love, but they never got together in canon (canon meaning: what actually happened in the text). Or that did get together, but weren’t together in the end of the series. Or a couple you ship but it’s actually impossible for them to be together because they are from different worlds, franchises, etc. Let your shipper heart run wild. I know mine will.
Now, let us get started~

Hey everyone~ I am happy that for the first time in a long while, my T5W post is right on time.
So, the usual spiel. Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group in Goodreads, which was created by Lainey, and currently run by Sam. This week’s topic is books that took me the longest to finish. Quoting Sam word-to-word, here’s an elaboration for the topic:
These are the books that you had on your nightstand “in progress” for months or years. The books that you took weeks to read because they put you in a slump. Those books that were an uphill battle. These are books you started and actually read, not books you’ve just had on your shelf the longest.
Now, let us get on with it. Continue reading “Top 5 Wednesday: Books That Took You the Longest to Finish (Oct 5th ’16)”

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
This quote was from page 93, Percy’s thought after the toilet incident with Clarisse and other Ares kids when Annabeth was showing Percy around camp.
I didn’t understand how. But the toilets had responded to me. I had become one with plumbing.
So, what do you think of the quote? Do you have a favourite quote from the Percy Jackson books? Or any other books? 😀
