Hello everyone~ Wow, the last time I posted for T5W was March :O
For all those new people who doesn’t know what T5W is… T5W is a discussion group on Goodreads, created by Lainey, and now hosted by Sam. Each Wednesday (duh!) we’ll post our top 5 list (sometimes more) based on the given topics.
This week’s topic is Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads. This has got to be one of my favourite topics ever. The topic is kind of self-explanatory, but to make it clearer, for today’s topic, we’ll get to talk about our favorite books that feature LGBTQ+ characters or are by LGBTQ+ authors. Unfortunately, my LGBTQ+ reads are limited to books featuring only GB and Q.
Hey guys~ As usual, I am late. Wednesday was yesterday for me. This also happens to be my first T5W post of the year. 😀 As you all know, Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group on Goodreads, started by Lainey and now moderated by Sam.
This week’s topic is Favourite Non-Written Novels. Basically, it means any top 5 fav manga, comics, graphic novels…etc. any others books except for the normal novel, you can list it down.
Mine will definitely be filled with manga, haha. I mostly read shoujo manga (romantic, sweet, fluffy manga that is sure to make a girl’s heart go doki doki), and yaoi manga (LGBT manga, well, yaoi specifically focused on gay love). But sometimes I do like to read action/ fantasy manga.
So, on to the list… Continue reading
Title: High Summons
Author: Eli Celata
Rating: 3.5 / 5 stars
Hosted by: Ultimate Fantasy Book Tours
Jon Blythe is sick of waiting for his Yoda. After years of hiding his magic, he’s ready to retire from his mortal life, drop out of college, and jump into the world of demon hunters. He just didn’t really expect a bleach blond bookstore clerk with light up toys for weapons. Unfortunately, Jordan is Jon’s only hope. When rogue magic users come to Rochester with a malicious plan, the odd couple strikes out to save the day. Jordan might not be what Jon expected, but between demons and Econ homework, the demons win every time. Wild nights drag Jon further from normal into the world where his father vanished. Maybe he’s becoming an addict. Maybe magic just comes with a price. Either way, he’s hooked.
This is definitely my kind of book. Magic. I love magic.
It started out slow, but I really enjoyed it as the book progressed. The fact that that the characters in this book is diverse is also a bonus point that makes me like this book.
I love Jordan a lot, and to be honest, I wasn’t that fond of Jon at the beginning. But Jon kind of grew on me. I also like the camaraderie between Jon and Jordan. I laughed a lot while reading this book, even at parts that others (my sister, because I showed her that part) didn’t find amusing.
I think fans of The Mortal Instruments might find this book interesting (because I know I did). I would also recommend this book to fans of YA Urban Fantasy books. I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Hey guys~ It’s Day 3, I’m still doing this, and I’m still late but I’m in denial. Besides, I haven’t gone to bed yet, so it’s not yet a new day even thought it is actually 1 a.m. where I am right now. Haha
So, today’s post is On the Shelf. It is kind of self explanatory. What I have to do is list down 3 books from my shelf, and just… write how I feel about them etc.
Now, let’s get on to it…
Hey guys, girls, people…readers? 😀
Lately, I’ve been buying so much stuff, especially books, which made me realize that I probably won’t be able to buy myself a new bookshelf until after I finally find myself a job.
So, I thought of clearing my shelf to give space for new books. Which led me to a question: What should I do with the books I’m no longer interested in.
You see, I’m a hoarder. So, giving away books, even the ones that I’m not interested in, is hard for me to do. That’s why, if I have to give them away, I would want them to go to someone who would take care of them, someone who read them and cherish them. Besides, they still looks new because I’ve either only read them once, or I haven’t read them at all.
And yes, I do realize that I sound like someone who is looking for a person to adopt my child. Which, I guess, I am, if books are humans.
So, anyways, I thought maybe I should do a book giveaway. I’m still not quite sure how it’s done, but once I know, I wonder if you guys would be interested in something like this.
If anyone’s interested, just like or comment down below. It’ll help me decide if I should do this giveaway.
Yes, yes, I’m late and I posted two (including this post) T5W posts today.
Top 5 Wednesday is a discussion group in Goodreads, created by Lainey, and now moderated by Sam. This one was this Wednesday’s (two days ago) topic, which is Gateway Books to Your Favorite Genre. Since I have quite a number of favorite genre, I’ll just list out one or two for each genre.
So, let us begin…
