BOOK REVIEW — the gilded wolves by roshani chokshi

“But what no one tells you is that even when you decide which world you will live in, the world may not always see you as you would wish. Sometimes it demands that you be so outrageous as to transcend your very skin. You can change your name. Your eye colour. Make yourself a myth and live within it, so that you belong to no one but yourself.”a quote from The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

BOOK REVIEW — blood of a thousand stars by rhoda belleza

“It’s terrible when people leave. I’m not gonna tell you to get over it, because that’s stupid, and if we could just get over things when we say we’re going to, then we would never cry…” She sighed. “This is coming out all wrong. But sometimes when people leave, it’s because they had their own thing going on. It’s not your fault, and it’s not your responsibility—if you treat someone right and they leave, then it’s on them.”an excerpt from Blood of a Thousand Stars by Rhoda Belleza

BOOK REVIEW — hello, universe by erin entrada kelly

“If you didn’t have bad things, you wouldn’t have good things. They would all just be things.” — quote from Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly

Kumusta, bookworms?

Middle-grade books have a special place in my heart — especially as a preschool teacher education degree and license holder. I strongly believe that if more youngsters will get to read the amazing voices of other children through books, then they would have a better childhood, which can greatly affect how they grow up as adults. Hello, Universe is definitely a book that many children will get to enjoy and learn a lot from!
