Sunday Post #002

Hello wooorld!! First of all, happy mothers’ day to all the mothers out there! Don’t forget to tell your mothers you love them. ❤

The Sunday Post is a weekly book meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Please do check her blog! 🙂


Personal update

If you’re from the Philippines or maybe heard of news about the Philippines lately, then you may know that tomorrow is election day here and also my first time to vote. So far, this year’s election has brought the worst in most people and I just want this to be over. Whatever happens, I hope for the best for our country. After all, progress depends not just on the leader but also on the citizens themselves. Okay, I’m gonna stop now before this becomes a political post. Hehe.

Reading-wise, this is a good week for me. I finally finished the series I’ve been reading for almost two months now. ❤


Just finished reading

The End

The End by Lemony Snicket

Yes, I’ve finally finished A Series of Unfortunate Events! This is probably one my favorites in the series. I will post my review this week but just to let you know, I gave this 5 stars!

Goodreads summary:

Dear Reader,

You are presumably looking at the back of this book, or the end of THE END. The end of THE END is the best place to begin THE END, because if you read THE END from the beginning of the beginning of THE END to the end of the end of THE END, you will arrive at the end of the end of your rope.

This book is the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even if you braved the previous twelve volumes, you probably can’t stand such unpleasantries as a fearsome storm, a suspicious beverage, a herd of wild sheep, an enormous bird cage, and a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents.

It has been my solemn occupation to complete the history of the Baudelaire orphans, and at last I am finished. You likely have some other occupation, so if I were you I would drop this book at once, so THE END does not finish you.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

You Know Me Well

You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan

I received this book as an eARC from Netgalley and it feels good to be finally reading my first novel from Netgalley.

Goodreads summary:

Who knows you well? Your best friend? Your boyfriend or girlfriend? A stranger you meet on a crazy night? No one, really?

Mark and Kate have sat next to each other for an entire year, but have never spoken. For whatever reason, their paths outside of class have never crossed.

That is until Kate spots Mark miles away from home, out in the city for a wild, unexpected night. Kate is lost, having just run away from a chance to finally meet the girl she has been in love with from afar. Mark, meanwhile, is in love with his best friend Ryan, who may or may not feel the same way.

When Kate and Mark meet up, little do they know how important they will become to each other — and how, in a very short time, they will know each other better than any of the people who are supposed to know them more.

  1. You Know Me Well looks interesting.

    I hadn’t heard about the elections there Cara but hope everything goes well. We’ve got elections coming up in Australia (in July – officially announced today). There’s not usually any violence or anything but there’ll be WAY TOO MUCH media coverage of it all over the next month or two!

  2. Good luck with your elections, here in the US we’re having a bit of election turmoil too (it drags on forever here) so I understand how you feel I think. It would be nice if it were over! lol I’ve always liked those Lemony Snicket covers and they sound fun and quirky, but I’ve never read them.

    1. I’ve heard things about the US elections too. I really can’t wait for this to be over. Oh yes, the covers are fun! You should try reading them if you have time. Have a nice week ahead. 🙂

  3. I hope the elections turn out well. Ugliness seems to come out at these times. It’s running rampant here the U.S. with the upcoming election too. It makes me so sad. People can get downright nasty.

    I have only read the first three of the Lemony Snicket books. They were such fun! Maybe one of these days I’ll read the rest. I hope you have a great week!

    1. It’s true. The bad side of people are revealed during these times. There are even jokes here about friendships broken because of the elections. It’s sad. I just want it to be Tuesday already for everything to be over (or not?). Anyway, what can you say about the first three books? Have a great week! 🙂

  4. Voting for the first time – very exciting! I do know what you mean about elections showing the worst in people – seems like that is happening here in the States as well :/ Wishing you the best. Also, great reviews! I still have yet to try Lemony Snicket…

    1. It is exciting, indeed! I just got home from the voting precinct. I hope today turns out well, same for the elections there in the US. 🙂 I enjoyed the series though it is quite long, there are 13 books. Thank you for stopping by! 😀
