    Wonderful Wednesday

    I come to a decision that I’ll be dedicating Wednesday for pictures of places I’ve been. Romantic areas of the world you might want to visit. Who knows you may even be standing at the spot I took the shot. Coincidentally my first travel post, Lovely but Guilty, was also in Wednesday, so I’ll try to keep this up 😉…

    La Doña – review

    Back when I was a teenager there was a Spanish series in the Philippines, Marimar. I was very addicted to the series, but sadly school got in the way and I never had the chance to see the end until I bought the DVD. Ever since then I been on the hunt to find other of Thalia’s series, but I…

    Lovely but Guilty

    There one thing I learned from leaving in Europe for 14 years. Four seasons are fun and annoying at times. I’m a tropical girl but when I married my Norwegian husband and went to live with him, that’s when I finally understood the meaning cold. Whenever Filipinos in the Philippines told me how cold it was the other day in…

    The Retreat by Yeyet Soriano

    I’ve read one reviewer saying that “somewhat had flat characters” but I didn’t want to believe it. The first book I’ve read from Yeyet is her #romanceclass novella Kate, Finally and the characters… ah… let’s just say that they put me in a rollercoaster ride of emotion. The Retreat did the same just better. The surprises and twist in the story…

    One chapter a day

    Happy romjul everyone! I have no idea what it’s called in English. Google translated it as “Christmas” which is wrong. After going to the English version of Wikipedia the translation I got was “Boxing week” what? Is this correct? It sounds weird. To make it short “romjul” is a Norwegian term for the days between Christmas and New Year. Romjul…

    Tapping on the forbidden zone

    It’s been a long joyful and depressing year for me. Joyful because I have my family, but depressing because I haven’t published as much as I wanted. Curse this damn monetary world. I’m too broke to have an editor check my finish manuscript. I also haven’t write as much as I want the last two years because, well, too busy…

    No One Else but You (A French FairyFail #3)

    “I can’t date anyone other than the man I’m in love with, I don’t like having substitutes.”“I know, that’s why I’m trying to win your love. Because when I finally have your heart, I know you would never falter.” Kahit na ilang beses nang masaktan si Sandra dahil hindi humigit sa kaibigang pagturing sa kanya ni Léonce, inakala pa rin…

    Surrender to Love (A French FairyFail #2)

    Power of love, bulong ng isang bahagi ng isip ni Pamela na agad niyang isinantabi. Power-of-love… bullshit! No money, no honey. Iyan ang madalas na nangyayari sa mga nagmamahalan kapag naghihirap. Money makes the world go round! Simula nang magpakamatay dahil sa pag-ibig ang Aunt Julie niya, “stick to reality” ang naging personal motto ni Pamela, na walang naging ibang…

Doon niya nakilala si Lèonce, isang lalaking tila binuhay mula sa kanyang mga isinusulat…

    Someone to Care

    They share similar pasts, but that’s as far as they have in common. After her parents die in an accident, Jennelle is passed around by her relatives. Hindi siya tumatagal ng isang taon sa piling ng mga kamag-anak bago siya itulak ng mga ito patungo sa iba. At fifteen, nalibot na yata niya lahat ng isla sa Pilipinas. Not that…

    Handsome Devil

    Agad na naakit si Yuna sa maamong mukha ni Benjamin nang una niya itong makita, ngunit agad rin niya itong sinumpa matapos siya nitong ipahiya sa harapan ng maraming tao. Pinanalangin niyang hindi na sila muling magkita ng binata, subalit masyado yatang abala ang Diyos dahil kabaligtaran ang nangyari. Sa mismong araw na isumpa niya ito, napag-alaman niyang ito pala…
