Re: December/January ’16-’17


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. 

Once upon a time, I stopped writing wrap-up/recap posts because of its repetitive nature until I realised they are probably the only hope I have in updating my blog. So I’m bringing it back.

I won’t ramble on any further soooooooo let’s get to recappin’. Continue reading

Magonia – A Series Review


If you look at the sky that way, it’s this massive shifting poem, or maybe a letter, first written by one author, and then, when the earth moves, annotated by another. So I stare and stare until, one day, I can read it.

2016 in Review

Miguel Does A Vlog Thingy

It has come to this point.

Hey guys! It’s been a while…and there’s a long, long post for that but for now: I have a vlog for you. I’ve been putting this off my mind ever since but I just couldn’t resist trying at least once.

So down below I did the Florence + The Machine Book Tag created by the amazing Kevin of Tomebound. Thanks Kevin for tagging me and subtly pushing me to film this instead of another post.

Hope you enjoy my awkwardness in low-quality (I’ll do better next time!)
