Book Review & Quotes: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

The last time I read a John Green book for the first time was the year 2014.

Book Review & Quotes: Yup I am that Girl by Maine Mendoza

I'm not a diehard fan, especially if you're going to consider it in the lens of show business. I rarely do have Filipino actors and actresses I really love. Yung sagad sa buto kind of love? Only few.
