“bookworm”

It all started with a book review …

Mrs. C. Ines required us to do a book report every week (or twice a month?) when I was in second year high school (Click here to read High School related article). We were given the reign to select our preferred books.

Hence, I chose Nancy Drew series, Sweet Dreams, and a bit of Hardy Boys.  And then I levelled up to Harlequin, Mills & Boon, Barbara Walters, Sidney Sheldon, Danielle Steele and whatever that caught my eye.

At first it was a drag reading the book, writing a summary and giving out comments. Nonetheless, I must say that the “bookworm” in me was unleashed. Without realizing it, I was doing more than what was required and filled out my book review notebook in no time at all.

Later on, I became fascinated with Tagalog pocketbooks. I particularly like the novels of Martha Cecilia, Helen Meriz and most especially Rose Tan. Ha!  Rose Tan is a darling! Her quirky characters made her novels unique and absolutely entertaining!

Enter Wattpad…

I started reading in Wattpad because of the following AshRald fan fictions.

My One & Only

The British flavor of this AshRald fan fiction gives a regal feel of the story. At first, I was confused with the British-English terms, but I’m getting the hang of it now. In any case, I’m learning a lot and I’m loving it!

I particularly admire the writer’s passion to improve his craft by taking into consideration the suggestions given to him. There’s absolutely a big leap of improvement from the first chapter to the succeeding chapters.

Keep it up Moo (@kalabaw_moo)! And thanks for dedicating the chapter 7 to me. I appreciate it.

Sa Papel Lang

Kate (@immissshockends) usually posts some mind boggling statements on twitter about this novel. Being “thecuriousme”, I started reading it. I was surprised because the writer sounded like “little” Rose Tan in the making.

The story has come to an end. It was short but sweet. I hope there’s a book two though.   Keep the books flowing @iluvsgga ! You’ll go a long way!
(Note: I’m extra proud for @kalabaw_moo and @iluvsgga because they are both Ilocanos like me. Amazing! :D)

From AshRald Fan Fiction, I branched out to the humour category in Wattpad. Below are the other stories that I recommend for a good read (and a great stress reliever to boot!). 😀
