Mia. 17. Ravenclaw. Avid Reader. Communication + Management Major.
This is my book tumblr blog as well as my personal blog because I found it hard to manage two blogs at the same time. My personal life seems to be tied up with books and reading.

It’s been a long time since I posted something here on my tumblr. I have been bombarded by school stuff that almost killed me and my glorius GPA (which droped like the freaking economy). I got the shock of my life last academic trimester when I got the taste of major subjects for my degree program Organizational Communication. It was challenging and frustrating as well. My first year in college did not prepare me for the rigors of my communication subjects (e.g. Communication Theory, Organization Theory, etc.). And so goodbye glorious GPA.
I also did not have much time to read for non-school books. It was a really sad life. I had about 40 unread books in my bookshelf.
And then when the trimester ended, we had a vacation for three days (if you call that a vacation). And I did not finish the book that I was trying to finish because I had to catch up on sleep. Then the torture resumed.
So now, I am still buried in school shit and org stuff. But I really try my best to read a bit. I’m currently finishing Angels & Demons and Freakonomics (which I borrowed from my economics major friend). The latter is an interesting look at our mundane and basic assumptions about how the world works. So far, so good.
My friend lent me the said book when I was stuck in her dorm room because of heavy rain. And because of the freaking weather, I was also not able to go to the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) and tomorrow is the last day!!! I must go.
Check out their website here: MIBF
I went to MIBF last year and it was amazing. 20% off on all new books. Oh for the love of books.
But I might not be able to go now…
But something more horrible is up. Now I have to find some journal articles…
This is not applicable to me. Usually, when I hate a book, I never reread it (I make a mental note to never ever read it again.) or if I really hate it, I give it away (which is the case of Twilight). So there is no way for me to love a book I once hated.
