I never really subscribed to the whole Netflix and chill phenomenon because a) I didn’t have Netflix and b) who has the time to chill??? That was my thinking…until my family got Netflix and there was no turning back for me. I need that Netflix and chill fix.
In the few months that I’ve been MIA, I was bingeing on a lot of TV shows on Netflix, which were mostly anime (haha!). And it sort of snowballed from there because how does one not fall deep into the abyss that is Netflix??? Though just recently I haven’t been watching anything since I got into reading manga…which is another story.
So here’s the time when Netflix and anime took over my life. Continue reading
Hello there! It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything on this blog, but today I’m back with a quick and easy collective review of all the books I’ve read so far this year – which is not a lot, by the way.
All in all, I read a total of seven books plus I completed a series. Now that is hard to come by these days what with tons of new series being published here and there. I also got around to reading a super popular book from way back when. Continue reading
Who else is shocked that 2017 is coming to a close? Can you believe that another year has passed us by? Methinks we’re all freaking excited about it. But it’s that time of the year again wherein I try to recap what little content I made over the course of twelve months. Indulge me! Continue reading
There will be no further explanation. There will be just reputation…
Be prepared for a sort of lengthy, semi-personal review of my favourite book this year. You have been warned. Continue reading
I’ve noticed a recurring trend in YA these days which is — entice the reader with a cleverly, vague title and breathtaking cover art. I’m currently taking up an entrepreneurship class in school and this week we were talking about product marketing. What sells/what doesn’t for the consumer. And for this consumer of books, Even the Darkest Stars is an example of marketing done right. Continue reading
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon this article in Indiewire about another critically-acclaimed indie darling from Sundance that’s making the rounds in the hype department. I actually didn’t bother reading what the film was all about – other than it’s a coming-of-age LGBT flick (a fave of mine) – because I was so entranced by its poster (see above). Continue reading
Hello! It has been a while since I’ve graced the book blogging community with a new post, but classes are suspended here in my place and I actually have free time to write.
So, to mark my short appearance here, I decided to do a tag — a fun and rousing game of Unpopular Opinions. Nobody tagged me for this one but after seeing Solomon over at The Bookish King do this tag, I thought why not? Click here to see his answers!
In the game of Unpopular Opinions, no character, no author is spared from the judgment of Miguel… Continue reading
Re: is a new feature here in The Quirky Reader wherein every month (or every other month) I make a neat summary of what went down in terms of blogging and living IRL.
Hello reader. I’m starting to see a trend in my reading with each passing month. Like I’d have a good reading month and actually read a ton of books. And then I get these dry reading months where I expect to read X amount of books, but…fall short.
So, how did I fare for the month of May? Continue reading
The Internet is one of my favourite places to be in the whole wide world. I know that sounds so introvert-ish of me and it makes me look like I have no life beyond my laptop screen. But in retrospect, being online has given me a lot of opportunities, such as blogging and getting to talk about books, and I met a few cool friends along the way too. It’s a vast world – the Internet is – and it can get scary. So what’s the Internet got to do with this book? Well… Continue reading
