Love the touch of Filipino-American culture. It's totally like what I see in every Filipino-American family vlog on YouTube. It feels very homey for some reasons. :)

Apparently I’ve been on a contemporary YA binge lately. They’ve been my go-to reads for my lunch break, when I just need something cute and not-so-heavy like fantasy can get. Don’t get me wrong: I love a strong female (or male!) lead who is ready to overthrow the system or ruler or whatever the case may be. I live for that.

Enter The Boyfriend Bracket. It was the perfect (and quick) read for me. To be ...more

This is a cute contemporary about a girl who just wanted to have a boyfriend but her overprotective big brother made it difficult for her to do so. When her brother finally graduated from high school, the main character, Stella finally felt free. Stella along with her best friend used the boyfriend bracket as a method to find Stella the perfect boyfriend. While the premise of the story sounded interesting, I'm afraid the story sets up a relationship between Stella with her long-time crush and it ...more
