This is such a short read but it was really satisfying. I particularly enjoyed reading this because it's from the male characters' POV. I always find male POVs fascinating and I'm glad that the book clicked just right for me.

The first story, Someday with You, follows Patrick and his sort of once-requited love for his college friend Andrea. Patrick has been invited for a camping trip along with his college friends, including Andrea. But since Andrea disappeared, he wasn't sure if Andrea really wa

4.5/5 stars!

When I knew about this book being published as a book I quickly ordered a copy and started reading it.

Short stories are very difficult to pull off specially if it’s composed of three different story lines but the author did her thing and managed to still push through the stories even if there are only a few pages to make the stories happen. I didn’t feel that there was something missing, it was satisfying enough that I think it will make everyone feel “kilig”. I just hope there’s goi

Note: The author kindly provided me with an ARC I decided to review.

Let me take a deep breath before I start, because I have a whole lot of love for this book.


Okay, I’m ready.

Someday With You and Other Stories contains three short stories by Ines Bautista-Yao, all told from the points-of-view of the male central characters. Patrick comes first. He pines over the same girl throughout and even after college. What happens when he meets the one who got away again after all these years?

Someday With You and Other Stories is a fine collection of stories that express the genuine heart string tugs you get when you read a story about young love. Each story was unique, short, and precise. Fluffy stories always get me, and if you mess with my emotions, then you have succeeded into hooking me into the deep abyss. And let’s be real here: I usually cannot imagine Filipino guys my age in books because there is still something lacking in representation. Yet this

This book contains for shorts which range from a lot of fun to slightly sad.
The first is a sweet almost literary piece told in memories of a character's lost love. It's sweet and bittersweet at the same time but with a hopeful ending. (for parents of teen readers, it has an implied sex scene, but nothing explicit on the page).
The second was my least favorite of the three. While I really liked the paranormal elements of it and the ghost story was touching as a young man tried to figure out lettin

Three short stories told by three different boys from three different points of view of hurt. The feels and emotions are potent in this collection, make no mistake. You've got Patrick, stuck in a sinkhole of yearning for the one who got away. Toby, who gives a whole new depth and meaning to the puzzle of how to move on. And Andrew, who finds himself at a crossroads in both life and love as he turns 18. Told in Bautista-Yao's dependably stunning prose, with her unique ability to bring kilig, tug ...more

These three stories are different but they all have love as the central message.

Each one shows a different part of love and how sometimes being in love means having to sacrifice.

The writing is good, the pace is pretty consistent, and you get the feels with the stories.

I received this book for free and I chose to write this review.

My first read and ARC for 2017 and it’s a collection of works by a Filipino author, yay!
This collection speaks of hope. The title alone is a giveaway. And seeing the cover with the lovey-dovey couple made me think it was a light read.

But it took me a week to finish all three stories. Not because they were written poorly, okay? On the contrary, they were written so well, it was difficult to move on to the next one.

More to the point, the stories of Patrick, Toby (and Jake) and Andrew are all painf

Three different stories, three different worlds, three different male POVs, and brings you multtitude of feelings. I regretted that I waited this long before reading this. I've missed out BIG.

Someday with You is a story of a man (Patrick, kyaaaah!) pining for his college love. I loved Patrick (who wouldn't?) but I'm so sorry but I hated Andrea. (Disclaimer: I hated the character but not the story, oki? ;)) I wish she would have been more considerate inspite of her own life dramas. I'm just ranti

All three stories were ones of longing. Patrick is the ever-dependable, but pining friend of Andrea. He thought they had something but the girl up and left him and was MIA for five years. Toby is distraught because Angela is starting to move on without him. Andrew is not sure if Penny would like him when she and Raffy looks so perfect together.

I'm not usually a fan of stories in a male perspective. I also find short stories lacking, in a sense that it fails to get

Someday With You and other stories is basically a book that collates 3 short stories from Ines Bautista-Yao. Being a reader who loves 1.) short stories, 2.) light contemporaries, and 3.) quick reads, I knew from the start that this book is for me.

Someday With You (a.k.a. Short Story #1) is about young love, and how hard yet satisfying it is to hold on to a love that has no assurance. One Last Thing (a.k.a. Short Story #2) is about moving on, letting go, and accepting that sometimes, happy ending

This is my first Ines Bautista-Yao book and I'll honestly give it a thumbs up. The book contains short stories based on the points of view of the male characters about love and pain that can surely bring out a lot of emotions and will make you fall in love with them. Among the three stories, One Last Thing was my favorite. Toby's story was so good that it made me cry with its ending. A great book that I would highly recommend. And it's a great Valentine date. ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short story collection. Each story brings out a variety of intense emotions, making one fall in love with the characters. "Someday With You" is a sweet story about a lost love and missed chances. "One Last Thing" (my personal favorite) is all about letting go and moving on. "Things I'll Never Say" is about coming of age and finding one's place in the world. I just wish there were more stories as this short book will definitely leave you wanting more. :) ...more

First, it’s an Ines Bautista-Yao book. That’s more than enough for me to read this.

Second, I love that these stories are in the male POV. I rarely encounter stories written entirely in this POV, and when I do, I get really interested because they feel like opportunities to understand how guys think. Plus, these stories have instant book boyfriends.

Three, I have mini-reviews for the stories. My favorite story is One Last Thing. Read my complete review to know why.

Wow. Ines Bautista-Yao has done it again. I love her writing style and I know I can expect a well-written, heartwarming story whenever I pick up one of her books. This collection of short stories however is a bit different from her other stories, in that they dealt with some heavier emotions, but they were memorable all the same. My favorite story, also the most heart-wrenching one, is Someday With You. This one shows off the author's creativity and insight into people's hearts and motives. I al ...more

I greatly enjoyed the three short stories included in this book.
My favorite though is the second story, about Toby. It could definitely be expanded and make for a good drama or movie.

Someday With You and Other Stories is a compilation of 3 short stories by Ms. Ines. We were used to reading the girls' POV but in this one, we get to read the boys' POV. Each story made me tear-up.

In Someday with You, I can relate to Patrick and how he felt when Andrea just disappeared on him. I kinda don't like her. Eh. Even after she came back and confesses her love to him.

In One Last Thing, I cried over Toby's story and how he slowly learned to let go of Angela and help Miguel and his brothe
