From Manila, Philippines. Named Kate, currently drifting about semi-seamlessly in this messy, icky void we call life. Twenty-four. Proudly morena. A government employee and grad student at UP Diliman whose free time and salary is lol, and yet despite this moonlights as a book blogger. Obsessed with fandom & shipping, sharks, dinosaurs, and outer space. Has mastered the fine art of reading while walking. Drives fast. Has no indoor voice. Likes traveling, hiking, and questioning the meaning of her existence. Gets into online fights about intersectional feminism, politics, and social justice.
I make a concerted effort to read and review #DiverseBooks / #DiverseLit and #OwnVoices, but I won’t turn anything away if suggested or offerred to me (especially if it’s free…hint, hint).
I’m not picky with genres, but my favorites are sci-fi, fantasy (especially urban fantasy), and contemporary/romance.
Occasionally I’ll stray away from the topic of books – usually to discuss serious issues like politics or social justice, or if I’ve traveled somewhere really nice and have a bunch of bookish photos from that place to show off – but that won’t be too often. If you want to listen to me rant about politics or check out more travel photos, come visit me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Links are below.
Photos are mine unless otherwise stated, and are taken with any of the following: iPhone 6, Huawei Nova 2i, or Fujifilm X-A10. Post-processing is usually done on Snapseed, Lightroom, or VSCO.
