Hobbyhorse 2.0

On my last post, I've told you one of the things that I usually do when I'm home. Now, this post will be about the other part or one of the five things that I usually do and that is READING.

I love reading books with sequels. Could be duology, trilogy, quadrilogy, pentalogy, and blahh (I also read single books. these are just what I preffered). What I'm reading at this time is the Unearthly Series and I'm now in book 2 (Hallowed). It's actually a young adult urban fantasy novel and these are the kinds of novels that I usually read. This is also the second novel that I read about angels/fallen angels/nephilim.

Just like in movies, my favorite genres are young adult, sci-fi, romance, fantasy, fiction, mystery, etc. I rarely read thriller novels cause it does not scare nor intrigues me. The only erotic book that I have read is Fifty Shades Trilogy.

The novels that I will be sharing here in my post are the ones that never left my mind even up to now that I have read lots of other books.


 Synopsis: This is a world divided by blood – red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
(The pictures are fan made)

Book 2 - Glass Sword is about to come out on February 9, 2016.


Synopsis: Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil, no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.


Synopsis: What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours? 17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart. 
Get ready to fall . . 


Synopsis: For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself—and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

Book 5 will come out on May 5, 2016.


And this is the trilogy that I'm reading now and I'm currently in book 2.


Synopsis: In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees...
Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.


I've always wanted someone whom I can talk to with regarding the books that I've read. To be honest, I don't have a friend who reads pure english novels like those. Most of my friends read books in wattpad who have Filipino authors. I got one whom I'm friends with ever since I'm 10 yrs old, but too bad she already moved to California. And even though that's the case, we promise each other that we will still be in contact and I'll do the best I can to persuade my mom to let me study there with her.

Anyway, I hope you guys read the books that I've suggested. Now, any books you wanted to suggest me guys? Please put it in the comment. :)

Hobbyhorse 1.0

What do you guys usually do when you're at home? Sleeping? Watching a movie? Reading a book? Eating? Cooking? Hah! If you're asking me, I do all of that whenever I'm home, but for now, I'm going to share the 1/5 of the what I mostly do, watching.

What I mostly watch are Koreanovelas. Why? Because unlike the American Series that takes me a year waiting for every season, Koreanovelas ends after 12 episodes, 16 episodes, 20, 30, 50, 60, etc. that you will no longer have to wait for another season cause it ends in just one (I'm not saying all koreanovelas are like these but let's just say USUALLY). You might think that I'm not a fan of American Series, but no, BIG NO! I'm a big big fan, it's just that, I usually wait for the season to end and go buy the CD of the series (raise your hand if you hate cliff-hanging). My favorite A.-Series is The Vampire Diaries though. Cause you know, I kinda have a huge crush on Ian Somerhalder ever since the series started. 
So, let's not talk about A. Series, I'm here to talk about the Koreanovelas. I love it because unlike the other dramas, Knovelas are not cliche. It also have a different plot twist.

Here, I'm going to share what I watched this past month. 

School 2015 - Who Are You

Sassy Go! Go!

Angry Mom


They are just the few of the Knovelas that I've been watching. It's great story is one thing, the handsome and beautiful characters were a plus. Haha! I watched so many knovelas and I had so many suggestions to give but why did I forget all it's title while putting it on my blog? 

If you haven't watched any knovelas you should try and watch one! I'm sure it will be unstoppable once you started it.

Anyway, what about you guys? What do you usually do when you're at home? You can share it to me in the comment box. Enjoy your weekend. <3

Thanksgiving ♡

♪♫ Say you'll remember me

Standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset, babe
Red lips and rosy cheeks
Say you'll see me again even if it's just in your wildest dream ♫♪

Great days have came for me and my family. Mostly because we finally get to meet my long lost three brothers and one sister. Ever since I met them, everyday seems different. No one is sad and everyone is just happy. They visited us for two nights already. They have cooked delicious dinners for us and we even drink wines, brandys and vodka all night. I never seen them in my whole life and even if that's the case, we never get awkward in our get togethers. Maybe because that's what siblings are for. We're a one big family now. No father but my mother is more than enough for me. We're eight siblings in total, three boys and 5 girls. It's one big hella happy family right? 

Anyway, happy thanksgiving everyone! Hope you're having a great time with your family! :)

Go for the Velvet

After weeks of waiting for a cold weather, it finally came! Although it did not last for days cause it just rained for a short while, I'm still happy that I could finally wear one of my jackets. I wear this outfit because I was scheduled to go to a party. That's actually an outdoor party but it became an indoor because of the rain. I guess being able to wear this outfit have consequences. Lol. 

Before I went to the party, I baked a cake because I suddenly craved for cinnamon flavors. I actually call this cake, Banana Cinnamon Cake. I've always been a fan of cakes and I don't actually care for the calories cause in our family, you'll only start to get fat when you turned 18 and I just turned 18 last October 6 and yes, now I have to watch my diet. :(

Anyway, it's a very delicious cake and I'm proud that I've made one. I just put the marshmallows on top of it to make it look more presentable. I also put some pure honey as it's added flavor that. If you want to ask how I made it, you could ask for it in the comment box and I will gladly tell you how I made it. :)

Hope you're having a nice day everyone!
