What's Cool? Feb Feels presents The Lunar Chronicles!

Let's talk about Cool things!
A lot has happened since the year has started. January was the month where I became--finally--a registered nurse! Last January 23rd, the results of Philippine Nursing Licensure Examination (November 29-30, 2014) has been released and my name was there. It was one of the Coolest thing that has happened to me. Finally, the busy-ness, sacrifices, and all the effort has paid off. It was all worth it! Afterwards, we had a victory party hosted by the review center, took an oath, and last week, finished my IVT training. It was still a long way, but I'm so happy for each of the results. I thank the Lord for all these blessings which makes life more Cool!

There's so much more to tell, actually. But let's get on bookish/blogging stuff! Today's What's Cool? edition is about Feb Feels presents The Lunar Chronicles...and books! Of course. ;D

  • Feb Feels presents The Lunar Chronicles

February has come and gone again and The Escapist's highlight? The Lunar Chronicles!

I'm a huge fan of this series written by the brilliant Marissa Meyer and so I have to feature it on Feb Feels. Feb Feels might be Valentine-themed event but that doesn't mean it's only about contemporary romance. This time, I featured what I love. And the MAJOR FEELS between Cinder-Prince Kai, Scarlet-Wolf, and Cress-Thorne!!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who once again supported and been excited on this event! Thanks also--and most especially--to Marissa Meyer for writing such an amazing series and for the signed copy of Fairest for the giveaway!

Here's what happened in Feb Feels presents The Lunar Chronicles in case you've missed it. ;)
