Books #3 and #4: Sorrowful Sorrowful Mysteries and The Boyfriend League

Hello bookworms! Here are my books #3 and #4 for this year's Road-to-50-books goal.

Book #4: Sorrowful Sorrowful Mysteries (Kikomachine Komix) by Manix Abrera

It's not actually a novel type of book but it's a book too, right? Haha. It's a comic book actually. It's Pinoy made too! It's my first time to read a comic book by Manix Abrera, and it's pretty cool! I found myself laughing every once in a while. :))

Book #5: The Boyfriend League by Rachel Hawthrone

It's so full of kilig moments! Everyone here knows I'm a huge sports fan but I don't know that much about the sport baseball. And it's one of the reasons why I bought this book, to know more about baseball. Basically, other than all the kilig vibes from this book, I learned a lot about baseball.

This book is so cute. A baseball pitcher falling in love is such a cutie! <3

I just had to blog about these two books together, since I am so late with my book blog posts already. I'm trying my very best to squeeze in blogging in my very busy schedule. Nevertheless, I hope this blog post may help all the bookworms out there in case you're looking for books to read. :)

Current read: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, book #6

What do you think?

UAAP volleyball

I was able to witness the UST vs DLSU UAAP women's volleyball match last January 26, 2013 at the San Juan Arena. Was expecting La Salle to win and they didn't let me down. Oh well UST. Haha. Anyway, here are some of my shots! Used a Nikon D7000 camera. Not so steady shots but atleast! :)

Can't wait for finals! I hope UST can catch up really soon and will make it to the finals! :)

Book #2: Popped 3

Big Event: Biggest K-Hip-Hop Band *ever* Movement is coming to Manila!

Job Description: Documenting behind-the-scenes action of hot, hot, hot K-Hip-Hop band, finally meeting K-Pop love of one's life, and going on a beach trip WITH the guys *dream come true*

Beach Trip Musts:
* BFF back from Korea living out her own K-Pop fantasy
* The whole gang back together working as a team
* Tough choices: Hot K-Hip-Hop band member or hot K-Hip-Hop band members' equally hot brother?
* Gangsta rapping with the love of Andie's second life
* Writing poetry by the beach while sitting next to ultimate K-Crush
* A heart broken in a million pieces?

While Andie and her friends live out the ultimate dream of blurring their first and second lives, everything is not right in the Popped universe: Andie's Korean boy friend (two words!) has somehow lost his sparkle. Will this end Andie's love affair with all things K for good? Or will her K-Pop love affair lead her to what she's been searching for all this time?

Popped 3 by Chinggay Labrador

Third installment of the book series Popped by Chinggay Labrador.

I don't know if I was able to blog about the first two books, but naah I don't think I was able to. Haha. Anyway, if you love K-Pop then this trilogy is a must-read for you!

I'm not really a K-Pop fan but I'm a huge fan of reading and Summit Books that's why I had to read this trilogy. I am glad I gave this trilogy a chance because it taught me a lot about the K world that everyone's been buzzing around. I keep asking myself, "What is there to love about K-Pop that seems to get all the attention of these people?" And this book probably has some of the answers I have been looking for all along.

There's a lot of K-Pop stuff around here! Besides learning some Korean words we commonly use everyday, I got to explore Korea, the country itself. It's like traveling Korea but in a book. But there weren't a lot of Korea-the-place in the third book. The third book was mainly set in the Philippines. But the first two books mostly happened in Korea where Andie and her friends went to Korea and all the places and details they went to were properly described in the books.

It was like you were in Korea I swear. The first book even made me want to Korea immediately! Only if I had the money. =p

Well of course there were love stories between the 4 main characters, and their Korean boys. Plus the hot K-Hip-Hop band they were all drooling for. I am not a fan of Korean boys, but this Movement boys in the book sounds pretty cool!

I'm not sure if the first two books are still in the market, but this third one is still on the go.

Go read it and learn about the K-Pop world!
