synopsis1

Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person…wasn’t Justin at all.

In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.

3D Bookmarks

This is somewhat a bookish post but I really want to share with you guys my newly purchased bookmarks from bookish_artistph and what makes this more awesome is that it’s 3D! Also, it’s affordable and Fortia (the owner) is really approachable and friendly. It’s been a nice transaction, and who knows, maybe I’d put another order right? I don’t want to be biased, but since these bookmarks are hand-made and a little personalise, it may take around 2 to 3 weeks in the process. So, if you’re willing to wait and not-in-a-rush, then it’s the right shop to buy your bookmarks. 🙂

Book Haul: October 2015 (Part 1)

bookhaul

I seriously need to stop buying books for a while since my TBR are slowly becoming huge! I need to read more instead of buying more. Huhu, so help me.

The reason why I bought Six of Crows, After You and Carry On is because I’ve waited the whole year for their release and now it’s available, OF COURSE I WOULD’T MISS IT! Then, I bought Never Never Part 1 because I liked the e-book so much that I decided to buy a physical copy. But dang, it’s so expensive for a thin book. Huhu.
