Spotlight on What's Happening in My Life Right Now


These past few months, I’ve mostly been publishing review and discussion posts. It’s simply the weekly blogging schedule I’ve stuck with, and so far I haven’t had any problems with it. However, I do feel like I should share about things in my life – mainly in school – rather than just talking about books and other bookish topics. Not that I’m narcissistic or whatever, I just thought you guys might want to know what happens in my life behind the computer. Not like I spend a lot of my time not facing any type of gadget.

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart...

6 Book Habits I Do Every Single Time

We surely have our own urges when reading a book. May it be before or while reading one. I, for one, am honest about it. I have these little habits I do before I actually start reading the pages, or whenever I read a line and end up remembering a song.

I’m most probably a weirdo for admitting these things, but hey, I’ll do it for the sake of something to publish for this blog (because I love you guys).

5 Things You Should Know Before Joining the Book Blogging Community

When I decided to revive this blog, I did it without really planning to. I just took a look at it on my Blogger page and was like, “Oh, let’s give this thing a try.” And then bam, I spend the rest of the day searching for a new template and racking my brain for possible blog posts. Eventually, I came to realize that book blogging (or even blogging in general), doesn’t come with just happiness. It can corner you and trap you in a hole and make you suffer from stress if you don’t handle it properly.

Now, I’ve come to realize that I really should have planned how I was going to revive MWH and not just immediately start blogging again because I wanted to at that time. Blogging comes with commitment. You can’t just quit halfway through because you want to – especially if you’ve already gathered quite an audience.

Thus, from the (almost) four months I’ve been blogging in this community, I’ve come to realize the following things:
