T5W: Books I want to have a sequel


It’s Wednesday and book bloggers know what happens when it’s Wednesday. It’s time for Top 5 Wednesday! T5W is a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and you can follow them in their Goodreads group by clicking the link.

This week’s topic is :

Books You Wish Had Sequels
— Standalones that you wish had a sequel or the last book in the series that you wish wasn’t the last.

I do read a lot of standalones and I have loads of books that I wish the author would give a sequel to, but here’s the top 5 in my list.



1 . Tiger Lily : If you have read Tiger Lily, you know that the ending was superbly amazing and it was perfect. But let’s be real, no matter how much we all love the ending, a part of us is still hoping to know more about Peter, Tiger Lily and Tinkerbell.

2. Dangerous Girls: This is the kind of book that needs a sequel wherein instead of a continuation of the story, we’ll get a story narrated by the heroine’s best friend.

3. Don’t Get Caught: How to say this without spoiling anything? The story ended in  way that the readers know there will be a clash of wits in the future between *toot* and *toot*. If you have read this book,you know that those pranks made by the characters are pure genius and I want to know more about it.

4.Uprooted: BEST DAMN STANDALONE FANTASY that I’ve read so far. Usually, a book with a genre like this needs to have a sequel to be really good. Uprooted is different. It put the other fantasy book in shame. And the only reason why I want to have a sequel is because I want to know more about Agnieszka and the Dragon’s story. I’m not choosy. I’ll be satisfied with a novella with 150+ pages.

5. Eleanor and Park: Raise your bloody hand if you want Eleanor and Park’s love story to continue.

Duly Quoted #9 : Poems for Persephone

It’s been awhile since I posted a Duly Quoted post and this time, I’m going to feature one of the most beautiful quotes that I saw on Tumblr. Do check out Poemsforpersephone to see more awesome poems and thoughts. ♥


what if
when icarus fell
apollo caught him
before he hit the sea,
arms as warm as the sun,
but safer.

Melt my Heart by Picolo-kun: art by Gabriel Picolo

what if
when ariadne cast the rope
across a broken branch
aphrodite stepped in
with a reminder that this,
this is not the kind of love
you die for.

Ariadne was the daughter of King Minos of Crete and half sister to the Minotaur Asterion. When greek hero Theseus came to Crete to slay the Minotaur, she fell in love. So strong was her love for the hero, she aided Theseus in both the slaying of the Minotaur and escaping the Labyrinth where the monster was imprisoned. She consulted the man who built the maze, Daedalus, and helped Theseus escape the maze with a ball of string. She left Crete with Theseus believing he was to marry her, but the...:


what if
when achilles
was ready for war
ares appeared with a smile
and said “you win well when you win,
but what are you unwilling
to lose if you lose?”
and achilles knew the answer.

The Song of Achilles Patroclus & Achilles:

if you could
retell the tale wouldn’t you want
to tell it kinder? wouldn’t you
want to give them peace, even love,
where you could?

Tumblr transparents:

Hope ya’ll got a lovely day.

Top 5 Wednesday – Rainy Day Reads

oie_QT65sxgKZcFWHey guys, today I’m doing another top 5 Wednesday post. 🙂 As always, t5w was created by gingerreadslainey on youtube. You can join the GR’s group for topics and more here. This week’s topic is your top 5 rainy day reads. I interpret rainy day reads as books that are “must-read-in-one-sitting”, or more melancholy/thought provoking books that reflect the weather. But that’s me.

Duly Quoted #8: A Neil Gaiman Quote

It’s been awhile since I posted the Duly Quoted of the week. For this Wednesday, I’ll post something that I saw on Pinterest (btw, I’m so active there, so like follow me and I’ll follow ya too).

Now that I’m done with my shameless self-advertisement, this is the quote of the week.


I’m really not a fan of Neil Gaiman books. I don’t know why. He’s an amazing author and his works are interesting but I just can’t get into his books.Sorry!

Are you a fan of Gaiman? If yes, what are your favorite books/quotes? Feel free to share! I might read them and change my mind about him. ♥

Monthly Wrap up: March


Hello my beautiful pancakes. It’s been awhile since I posted and I miss ya’ll. This is my first monthly wrap-up and I usually don’t do this post because compiling the books that I read for the whole month is a bit of a hassle. But I feel like doing this one so here I am. 🙂

I’ve read *checks Goodreads* 22 books for this month. Don’t judge. I didn’t include the DNFs because the point that I dnfed them is enough.

Book Traveling Thursdays – An underhyped book.

oie_Peta0smZ2kAtBook traveling Thursday is a weekly book meme hosted by Catia and Danielle. In short, there is a topic, and you chose a book for it, then show editions from around the world of that book. So, this weeks topic is an underhyped book. I chose The False Prince by Jenifer A. Nielsen. (this book is fairly popular, but I still think it deserves more hype than it receives. i’m sure quite a few people reading this will recognize it.)





Indonesian version (at least I think so):


Spain/Latin America:




Okay that’s it! If you have any corrections, please feel free to tell me! This was all based off of Goodreads/google translate haha. Hope you liked this post

Leave a comment about an underhyped book you loved. Share the love 🙂 PERFECT
