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
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.
Reading this series takes me back to those nights where I would stay up late and watch those old Disney movies from the 2000s. It always felt like magic to me because I was staying up way past my bedtime. And Magonia brought me back to that feeling of being a child again – where I would believe in the magical and the beautiful.
I’m not quite done lamenting about 2016. Continue reading
Whoa there. Did 2016 just happen? I honestly can’t believe the year is finally drawing to a close once again. Even more when I realise that I didn’t blog for quite a long time. It saddens the heart, but that’s for another day’s post!
Today I’m recapping my year in blogging – whether I was active or inactive aha – and reading – whether I was or wasn’t aha. This is going to be interesting.
(Go on and like this post if you thought this gif was pretty nifty! It took me a grand total of 4 hours to make this *_*)
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!)
Hello, reader. Welcome to Episode 2 of Top 5 Wednesday! It’s been a looooooooooong while since the pilot episode of this series on my blog so I’m glad I finally got the chance to do another one!

If you want to participate in #T5W, you can head on over to their Goodreads group. Continue reading
I probably say this to every book out there, but the moment I read the synopsis for Timekeeper I already fell in deep love. And I fell into even deeper love once I got to read the beauty of its words. Just as I anticipated – this book is every bit of amazing and exhilarating. Continue reading
Remember last year’s immensely magnificent, where-did-this-book-come-from Uprooted? I knew from the synopsis alone that it was going to be an fantasy of epic proportions but still I was blown away with how goooood it was. This year’s breakout fantasy comes in a more subtle albeit still epic tale called The Beast Is An Animal.
I don’t know what is up with me lately but I can’t stop listening/singing to Fifth Harmony’s Sledgehammer. Out of the blue, I went to Youtube and just jammed to it for days. Like, come on: how random is that?
Not as random as this post. Continue reading
BEATRICE: But for which of my good parts did you first suffer love for me?
BENEDICK: Suffer love! A good epithet! I do suffer love indeed, for I love thee against my will.
I’m sure a lot of you have already read or heard of this lovely 2016 debut by now. So here’s my two cents on the wonderfully titled Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake.
