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
Exposition: With one week of school left, I can already feel myself breathe a little better. I can feel my fingers as they move in their own accord. I can feel the sleepless nights coming. In short, I’m excited to be blogging again WITHOUT any hindrances.
(aside: so I wrote/drafted this post way way waaaaaaaay back in 2015, and didn’t bother putting it up so lol please enjoy 2015 miguel)
Hey, what’s up? So as I’m writing this post, I thought how random this is. It’s almost 10PM and I’m about to prepare for school and stuff. But I decided to do another Q&A to keep things entertaining here at The Quirky Reader. Plus, I’m catching up on some tags that are way overdue. Continue reading
