Jenny of Jayne VS Books, Rexy of Reading Rexy, Cath of To All The Books I’ve Read Before, Elena of The Queen Reads, Krish of @krish.reads on IG and I agreed on something awesomesauce!

We decided to host a Feminist Readathon for the month of February. Few days ago it flooded the twitterverse that Emma Watson just made a bookclub Our Shared Shelf tackling books about Feminism or about women in general and equality. I immediately joined, of course.

Because of this, an inspiration hit me like a wrecking ball! Haha! I don’t have a copy of the book Emma Watson chose for the book club, but because I want to read these kinds of books so much and wanted to contribute to this great cause, I did something quite similar to it. I conspired with the girls to read Feminist books this February! When I proposed…

Latenight Confession

Forgive me reader for I have sinned. My last post was last September.

HAHAHAHA Although not many people read this blog, I still feel guilty and ashamed because my last post was five months ag0. 😦

I blame the following:

  1. Acads. (I’m a college student and sometimes that sucks. Enough said.)
  2. Laptop Probs (I have a laptop but it’s so BIG lol. It’s a pain carrying it back and forth between my dorm and my home. + WordPress’s app on my iPad + Android phone isn’t very user friendly)
  3. Laziness + lack of dedication (Probably the most accurate reason of all, hehe.)

To be fair to myself, (because I still feel guilty, hehe) I wasn’t 100% unproductive with the 3rd quarter of my 2015 reading life. I didn’t blog from September-December but…I did achieve this 😉

Hehe. Yep, I read. And read. And read some more.  Granted, many of my 2015 books are Harlequin shorts-yaknow, those books with shirtless men  + sexy women on the cover grannies read…but a book is a book. Haha.

I didn’t blog and I became a bit inactive in bookstagram..but I did read 116 out of my goal of 100 books this year so I gopt that going for me, which is nice. HEHE.

Anyway, I’m typing this (and I finally blogged, alleluiah!) because I was inspired by my friend Jenny’s foray into creating a blog here in WordPress a few days ago (Check her out!) 🙂

I sincerely hope I’ll be able to update this blog more often this 2016.

Here’s some cupcakes I baked for you!

Thanks for reading this! 😉

Sydney’s blood is special. That’s because she’s an alchemist – one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets – and human lives. But the last encounter Sydney had with vampires got her in deep trouble with the other alchemists. And now with her allegiences in question, her future is on the line.

When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she’s still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir – the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir – is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill’s guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the unlikeliest of places: a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. The last thing Sydney wants is to be accused of sympathizing with vampires. And now she has to live with one.

The Moroi court believe Jill and Sydney will be safe at Amberwood Prep, but threats, distractions, and forbidden romance lurk both outside – and within – the school grounds. Now that they’re in hiding, the drama is only just beginning.
