Hi there! My name is Cara, and I come from the Philippines, where the best mangoes are grown. I’m currently studying Chemical Engineering in UC Berkeley and read to pass the time between hectic lectures and midterm reviews.


I picked up reading again and realized I really liked telling my friends about the books I read, so hey why not tell the world? When starting this blog I resolved to explore other genres and I think it’s working out pretty well.

One day I hope to be good enough to get free ARCs from authors 😛



★☆☆☆☆ : Did not enjoy at all.

★★☆☆☆ : Decent, but fell short in a lot of areas.

★★★☆☆ : Pretty mediocre. Wouldn’t read it again, but others might enjoy it.

★★★★☆ : Really enjoyed it, I only had minor concerns. Would recommend.

★★★★★ : Amazing! Very memorable, definitely a must for others to read!



I like to try and be *aesthetic* and take some nice pictures of my books. Usually takes around 3 flashlights, 20 different angles, and a coerced boyfriend adept at Photoshop to get one good photo, so I don’t do it too often.
