Outside the Book Nook

Outside the Book Nook: PRODUCE 101 Season 2 (Part 1)


Catch up with the rest of my favs in Part 2!

Hello! I don’t even remember when my Outside the Book Nook was posted last time. Was it… Yiruma’s concert one? If yes, that would mean that I abandoned this segment for a good 3 months.

Actually there’s a reason why I don’t use this category much. As you can see, this is, in the first place, a book blog, which means everything bookish should still be the main niche of my space. Of course, since this is my space, and I’m entitled to do whatever I want to, I kept reminding myself that I started this with an intention of being a book blogger. But at the same time I didn’t forbid myself from writing anything non-bookish. I just wanted to avoid turning my bookish blog into anything else but the bookish blog. So that’s why I rarely used this tag.

As for now, I’ve been blogging about books for 3 months already, and I thought that people who read me are more than allowed to know about my other hobbies aside reading, so, today we are here to hear me ranting about my second longest obsession.

Quote Hunting

Quote Hunting: A Court of Wings and Ruin


So hiiii, it’s time for another quote hunting!

As you can wildly guess, it’s A Court of Wings and Ruin quote hunting, and I should confess to you that I didn’t focus myself much on finding quotes when I was reading the book. I was so immersed into the plot I probably lost some. Nonetheless, let’s do it!

As usual, this is a spoiler alert. If you haven’t read ACOWAR yet, feel free to skip this post.

Book reviews

REVIEW: A Court of Wings and Ruin (SPOILERS!)


I think I was forced to ride an even crazier roller coaster than before. Like, right when you see the end of the ride, a sudden loop just takes you over. Yes, that’s what Mrs. Maas did at the end of ACOWAR.

Warning: Massive spoilers are inevitable in this review, so if you haven’t read the book series as a whole, or ACOWAR in particular, please feel free to skip the review to avoid being mindblown!

Hey folks!

Sorry for my sudden disappearance from WordPress and lack of activity here, but I got on blogging slump after coming back from my trip to Danang city (lol, what an excuse), but now I’m completely ready to push myself back to ranting here, and so, let’s do our usual routine: memes, reviews and discussions!

So this week’s prompt from The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday is:

Wednesday Shelf Control: Lord of the Rings saga

Wednesday Shelf Control is a bookish meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies on a weekly basis.



I’m back from my short trip to Danang city with my best friend, and ‘as a luck’, I’m currently having a severe headache due to sudden change of weather surroundings (it was around 25-26 degrees Celsius in Danang while HCMC kept the temperature at around 29-30 degrees), so I’m trying not to pressure much over anything including book blogging (sorry about that!), but I also thought that I should slowly go back to being fully active, or otherwise, I’ll be stuck at this slump forever. And since it’s Wednesday, let’s do our regular Shelf control!
