What's Cool? 2014 + 2015!

Cool stories and more!
Despite the craziness of my 2014, I can't deny the Cool things that happened as well. Here are my untold stories from 2014 and few of the many things to look forward in 2015!

  • Book Haul

The last few books of 2014 I have't shared about yet!

For review:
My True Love Gave To Me edited by Stephanie Perkins (review here)
I Was Here by Gayle Forman - for blog tour. This was only lent by the tour host but I didn't waste the opportunity to take a snapshot of Gayle's new masterpiece!
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson - with a 3D card/plate/bookmark
Pawn by Aimee Carter - ARC

Boomerang by Noelle August - signed with bookmark

Thank you so much Macmillan International, Pinoy Book Tours, Fay of Bibliophile Soprano, and Kyle!

  • Sarah of HarperCollins International
I finally met Sarah Woodruff of HarperCollins International! She's my first contact during my first year in blogging. She's really nice and even sent me year-late books before. She visited Manila to present the upcoming 2015 titles of HarperCollins. There were bunch of ARCs and boxes of pizza. It was a great day! Only if I were there. I was there but arrived exactly when they're done. Stupid traffic.

And here I was--looking haggard after a looong day. Thanks Kim for the photo! Hi Sarah!

  • Best of 2014
I have listed my best books of 2014 as you've seen on my Best of 2014 giveaway. There were a lot of gorgeous books in different genres. I can't wait to read the next installments from their series and meet new faves this year!

I post my Best of books on the right side bar of this blog for year round. For example, I posted the entire 2014 my best books in 2013. Now I'm posting my best of 2014 for the entire 2015! Check out the side bar.


  • Goodreads Reading Challenge

Last 2014 I challenged myself to read 50 books but I surpassed it and read 80--that's 160%! This year I'm challenging myself 75 books. Here's to hoping I could surpassed it again!

Speaking of, here are the books I've read in 2014!

  • Celebrating Debutantes 2014
CD2014 was a blast!!! Thank you all for the support! I'm looking forward on this year's debuts. I've seen a some and they're really great!

Check out my thank you post + 2015 debuts and note to 2015 debut authors.

  • Random
I got this Taylor Swift shirt for free (when you purchase a 1.5L gallon of Selecta ice cream last December)!!! I would prefer a different design but it's all they have on stock. I'm still glad I was able to find a store with a promo, though! I went to four different stores but they have no idea regarding this. So I asked the Facebook group members of FFS (Fearless Filipino Swifties) for the nearest store with TS shirts, and tada! I have it at last! MWAHAHA! In all other words: I tracked it down like a crazy fangirl would. ;)

Since we recently had holidays, here's my version of Bookish Snowflake!


How was your 2014? How's the start of your 2015?
