This week’s question:

Q: What have you learned from book blogging that you didn’t know before about the publishing industry?

A: This will come as a shock, but both of us had no idea that ARCs existed and were given to book bloggers for review. We also didn’t know that you can actually request ARCs as well. Before we actually started book blogging, we thought that it was just all about reviewing books we had already read and interacting with other bloggers. We had no idea that authors and publishers were actually a big part of the interactive experience as well!

Waiting on Wednesday (6)

The book we’ve picked for this week is…

Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.


Ever since we read Half-Blood, we’ve been dying to get our hands on the rest of the Covenant Series- and Apollyon is no exception. Jennifer Armentrout is truly an amazing and talented author. Though Diety has arrived here in the Philippines yet, we’re sure that it’s going to be just as good, or even better!

Feature and Follow [This week's featured blog!] (14)

Wow, we couldn’t  believe it when we found out that we were this week’s Featured Blog! This is definitely an opportunity of a lifetime. We want to give a huge thank both Parajunkee and Alison Can Read for this! 



Q: What is the last book that made you cry? Tell us about the scene…


A: Hmm, this is a bit of a tough one for me. I rarely cry while reading a book. However, I guess the closest to teary I have ever gotten was when I read Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer, the conclusion to the Nightshade series. One of the parts was when Ren just passed away protecting Calla as well as the part when they all sacrificed being human and became wolves- forever. It just made me so sad because I had grown really, really attached to Ren, and I never expected them to give up their being human at the end.
