I joined Goodreads in 2010, but was more active last year until now. I live in the Philippines. My mom was the one who taught me to read, so thanks to her, I've grown to love books. I always find time to read...while watching TV, while traveling, during work hours...I'm a part of an IT support (Ignify), so I do have lots of down time at work when there are no tickets to answer or e-commerce websites to save!

Besides reading, I love to travel. I've only gone to two other countries, Hong Kong and Singapore, but I've been to a lot of islands within the Philippines (7,107 islands!). And I have 3-year plan to make my dreams come true to fly to Europe and do some backpacking with my friends.

I also love animals. I have 3 dogs, a black male lab named Jasper; a female mixed Japanese Spitz/Retriever named Booboo; and a female mixed Dalmatian/native named Kali.

I love meeting bookish people. I swoon over fictional characters, and I love movies made from books!

About you : I love to read, but I never really read for fun until around 2011 or so. I used to think reading was torture before then!

Reviewing is my passion, especially if it's a rant. I'm one of those people who can't keep to themselves and just HAVE to have my thoughts heard. I don't like sugarcoating things, either.

I love to watch anime and read manga, which is why it's my dream to visit Japan! Hopefully next year. Anyway, some of my favorite anime include Fushigi Yuugi, Mirai Nikki and Danganronpa. (It's funny that 2 of those are horror/murder mysteries and I am a huge WUSS.)

I can't stand horror movies. They make me stay awake for hours. Once I had to wait until it was 7 AM and bright out before I actually went to sleep.

Talking. I love to talk.

I am a Filipina bookworm who loves stalking Song Joong Ki and loves watching Asian dramas. Being an only daughter in the family, books has always been my only company while growing up. I did experience playing too, but I'd really rather pick a book than throw a ball.

I love taking notes whenever I read and I like pouring down my feels and rants while reading. This inspired me to start reviewing books. It is tiring to keep thoughts to yourself especially if they are frustrations you don't want other readers to experience. I may be an introvert but I can be talkative at times too.

I love Asian dramas. I don't really care with the number of episodes as long as it makes my heart flutter and my cheek bones raise. Korean, Taiwanese, or Japanese, I don't really have a favorite.

I teach piano to little kids too. Member of a church choir and during holidays I bake too. I like watching movies alone and I despise/hate/despise/abhor frogs.

About you :
I love reading books in random genres depending on my mood. As much as possible I want to try it all. Classic is my difficult prose. i am not really a fan of it except Inferno by Dante Alighieri. I am a potterhead and a night reader. I got my reading habit from my dad. He loves reading books too but we have different genre preferences

As of now, I am into contemporary novels and dystopia. I love going on book signing events and meeting other bookworms. I met them because of Goodreads.

Aside from reading, I love listening to old songs, playing badminton and watching movies. I hate Da Vinci Code. I just couldn't stand it. ALSO, The Boy Who sneaks in My Bedroom Window, uggh,

About you :

Hello, guys! You probably know me as that resident Filipino ranter with walls of texts of rage-y updates, but I swear I am nice in real life! :D I only started reading seriously and viciously in 2012. Before that, I only read one or two books a year (not counting those for school, of course). I initially started book blogging because people like Wendy Darling inspired me, and I really wanted to become a part of this fricking awesome community.

I'm into all sorts of genres - fantasy and dystopia my favorites, with contemporary at the bottom. But I'll consume anything as long as it's good!

I really recommend the following titles:

1.) Blood Song by Anthony Ryan
2.) Written in Red by Anne Bishop
3.) The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
4.) Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker


Have fun reading ~~

I've been reading ever since I was little, but I started reading more way back in 2009 when I entered a university and had more freedom to go to bookstores. I have a book shopping addiction that I have to hide from my family. XD

I absolutely adore contemporary books because it feels like living in places I dream of going to, but most likely will never see. I scare really easily so I usually stay away from horror/thrillers/etc. Occasionally, I read other genres - fantasy, scifi, dystopian, paranormal, etc. But I have never understood how a human could love a blood-sucker (vampire), a dog (werewolf), or a rotting dead person (zombie).

Chick lit books are my guilty pleasure, but only if they make me laugh and swoon. I don't like too much drama or hate. Characters who hate others for no good reason annoy me to no end. A lot of chick lit books are cliche, but I love them. I co-blog at Fluffy Reads.

Oh, and I love food and music. Also, I'm awkward and introverted most of the time, but it doesn't mean I don't like people or talking. And I'm a newbie in the book blogging community.

Hi!

I'm Mai, I'm still debating whether I should start a book blog. I'm in med school, so when classes start in June, I'm afraid I can't update as regular blogger. It's 50-50 for me. I like historical fiction and gothic but I hope I'm still welcomed here even if I'm not a fan of YA. Ummm, yeah hi again!

I work in IT industry 8-10 hours a day and a book geek the rest of the time. After all these years, I am still on the hunt for a job that will pay me to read all the books I want. Clearly, still no luck.

I started reading when I was 7, my Dad used to buy me those cute Ladybird books. In the middle grade, I started reading Sweet Valley Kids/Twins, Baby Sitter Little Sister and Nancy Drew Notebooks. That started my wonderful love affair with books.

Other than reading books, you might find me watching Anime and Korean/Japanese series or blogging or actively chatting in social media sites. I'm a very shy person but if we're talking about books or anime, I'm a different person.

About you : Hi!! Hey guys! It's Paula from Her Book
Thoughts! of TUMBLR I just moved! :) I'm 18. A proud Filipina! Reading and book blogging makes me happy. I’m a love/movie/music/people enthusiast! I love bookstores, coffee shops and libraries. Make me a mixtape and we’ll be friends forever! ♥ I also co-blog
a!t Cristina's Book Reviews :) I've been blogging on Tumblr since 2010. But I keep deleting my account because I'm weird like that. But the review blog that I have right now was just established this Jan 1 2014. (I spent new years eve alone, you guys it was really sad) Anyway, I'm kind of new to this blogging/reviewing thing. But I've always been inlove with words.. with books. The first novel I've read is The Chamber by John Grisham. Then TFIOS by John Green (w/c I think now is overly overrated) and that's how I became an addict.. in books. :P

My hatred for PBB is really scaring me. Also I don't watch any Filipino primetime shows, we all know what's gonna happen anyway. I'm into music. but i don't sing!

Okay. That's it. I love to talk by the way. Like, all the time. Sometimes, even in appropriate situations. And I'm awkward. So.. yeah. Okay, sorry :P

I started reading ever since I was born (true story). My mother always tells me she "forced" me to read during my early years. I have my whole life to thank her for that haha.

I started blogging last year but immediately stopped because I was pretty preoccupied with school work. I got back to blogging only last January of this year.

Other than reading, I'm absolutely passionate about music. I love discovering alternative/indie bands. I also really love playing the piano <3

Hi, everyone! I'm not really a new blogger, I've had few attempts here and there. But this year, I decided to focus on blogging about the one thing that I really, really love: books.

I don't have a favorite genre, but I've been reading a lot of YA novels lately.

And oh, I'm also a Social Media Manager for several brands here in PH.

So there... I hope we can be friends and please check out my site. :)

Hi aeyc! hahaha ^_^
Most definitely. I'd probably recommend Sixty Five Hours by N.R. Walker - she's a solid author of MM Romance and I totally loved her style. Plus this one is a free read so if you don't like it, at least you didn't pay for it. LOL. Seriously though, it's a wonderful read.

I'd also recommend An Intrepid Trip to Love by Charlie Cochet. Again, a free read but a fantastic one at that. From here, you'd get a feel how Charlie write her stories and maybe you'd enjoy her THIRDS series then. Dex will definitely steal your heart!

Or if you like YA - I'd say go read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe - it's not much of an MM book but the MCs are two guys who love each other ^^ This got an amazing response from both MM/MF book readers. The author's a wonderful writer.

But then, my all time favorite series would be Cut & Run by
Abigail Roux with Madeleine Urban. Hands down - Ty and Zane are the "numero uno" couple in the genre. :)

Geez, I could go on forever with this lol but for now, those are the title I'd recommend for your first foray into the genre.

Enjoy dear!
