Looking Back: On October



This month seriously flew by for me…before it manages to register in my mind its already Halloween; the last day of the month of October. This year, months are just zooming past me one after the other, and when I realize it, it’d be Christmas soon! Since I did one for September, I decided to do a recap post for this month as well, a good tie in to wishing everyone Happy Halloween while I’m at it.

Book Quote: About What Is a Dream? by Patrick Ness


I’ve just finished A Monster Call two nights ago, and I couldn’t help but be at awe of all the brilliant phrases, to where I was just itching to share them! So here is one which I like about “what is a dream?” I couldn’t pass a quote on “dreams” could I? Especially since this blog is titled “Dreaming of Espresso“.

Reading Now: Alistair Grim’s Odditorium by Gregory Funaro


I’ve actually just finished A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, I need some time to digest the book before I write a review, therefore I decided to do a post on the book I’m presently reading. I was reading this sorta simultaneously but ended up finishing that book first. So now I will be giving Alistair Grim’s Odditorium my full attention 😀  Continue reading “Reading Now: Alistair Grim’s Odditorium by Gregory Funaro”

Reading Now: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness


It feels as though I’m using this opportunity to show off my Instagram photography LOL! Anyways, its a few days before Halloween and its an all out creep and horror fest out there. There are plenty of reading recommendations for scare/horror titles going around on the book blogsphere, its quite interesting indeed. This is what is in my reading pocket at the moment, Patrick Ness’ A Monster Calls.

Book Review: Served Hot (#1 Portland Heat) by Annabeth Albert


I picked this one up on a whim, saw the cover (to be exact the “Served Hot” typography) and decided to give it a try. I’ll be honest I was mostly attracted to the coffee theme. I had also picked it up because it was a short piece, at the time I wasn’t up for long reads.  Continue reading “Book Review: Served Hot (#1 Portland Heat) by Annabeth Albert”

Book Review: The Fifteenth Minute by Sarina Bowen


The first book I read from Sarina Bowen was her Ivy Years Series and I fell in love with it; she became one of those authors I have on autobuy. The beauty of this series is all the books in the series can be read as a standalone; you won’t really be missing anything, but it would still be great to read from the first book onwards, just to familiarize yourself to the Campus and its wonderful people 😀 In the case of The Fifteenth Minute it is the 5th book in her series and one which I was really looking forward to, especially since I had finished The Shameless Hour not too long and was really interested in Lianne as a character, so I was happy to hear she was going to have her own story 😀  Continue reading “Book Review: The Fifteenth Minute by Sarina Bowen”

Top Ten Tuesday: Wishes I Would Love The Book Genie To Grant Me

It’s Tuesday again, I have survived another Monday, made it through the work day and am posting this! I might not be as constant in posting other topics but I try to be constant with posting Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: “10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me (a new book from a certain author,  a reading superpower, a library that is your absolutely #librarygoals, a character to come to life, to met a certain author etc. etc.) YOU DREAM IT AND THE BOOKISH GENIE CAN DO IT.”

10 is definitely better than 3, the book genie is definitely more generous than the traditional genies/fairies I’ve been accustom to, I guess even they are evolving 😀 Yet, I should still be more prudent with what I wish for 😉 Here we go!  Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Wishes I Would Love The Book Genie To Grant Me”
