Hello wonderful readers!

I have something exciting to do for today! And as you probably have guessed it from reading the title, I will be doing the Coffee Book Tag! I am so excited to actually do this book tag just because coffee/hot chocolate and books are two of my favorite things in the world!

From what I know, this book tag was created by BangadyBangz and I recall watching it long ago from his channel and really wanting to do it. I also saw Katytastic, Jessethereader, and a lot of my favorite booktubers do this tag. BangadyBangz video will be attached below just so I could probably save you the time of searching for it because you may be as lazy as me and just so you could find yourself a probably new favorite booktuber!

I am also thankful to my good friend Dorothy from Not that Girl from Oz for tagging me to do this tag and for making me more determined to actually do this! Haha. Go check out her blog, it's absolutely wonderful!

Basically, there will be 8 questions that somehow relates coffee and hot beverages to books.

Without further ado, let's begin!

Hello wonderful readers! 

For today I have a book haul for you! It's actually my May Book Haul as you can probably tell by the title of this post. I kinda skipped April just because I only got a book that month and that was during the last few days of April so I just included that book on my May book haul!

Anyway, without further ado, let's begin!

As you can probably tell, I have accumulated 4 books the past month. Now, in terms of quantity this is not one my biggest book hauls ever, but in terms of quality, this is probably one of the book hauls I am most excited about. 

This book haul contains books I am pretty much excited about. Books from famous content creators that I actually look up to and novels I've heard good things from. I am highly anticipating these books and I am so excited to finally be able to read them!

The first book from the pile is Ready Player One by Ernest Clide.

Ready Player One is a book that is loved by almost everyone. It got a goodreads' rating of 4.31 stars which pretty much means this is an amazing book. 

From what I can tell, this is a futuristic world set in which reality is messed up. It follows our main protagonist, Wade Watts into trying to solve the puzzles and mysteries in a virtual utopia called OASIS. At the end of these puzzles are fortunes and prizes that other players would kill for. And this book is basically about Wade Watts trying to survive and finish the game.

If that's not enough to make you interested, I don't know what will. All I know is that some of my favorite people in the book community including Jesse from jessethereader, Ariel Bisett, Marie Lu, and Rainbow Rowell gave this book a perfect score and I pretty much value their opinions. I am so excited to dive straight into this book! Oh, and by the way, I got this book at Fully Booked for Php 565.00 which I think is a pretty fair deal for a book highly talked about.  

The next book I got was the book I purchased during the end of April, it's The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness.

Now, Patrick Ness is an author which people seems to rave about. But upon further research after purchasing this book without looking it up online, this book is not Patrick Ness' best book according to the internet. It got an average score of 3.8 on goodreads and received mixed reviews. Nonetheless, the main reason why I picked this book up was entirely because of its synopsis and cover so I'm still pretty much excited to dive in.

Basically, this book is about those who are usually not noticed. About those who aren't the chosen one. Those who aren't the main protagonist. The normal people in a magical world. We follow Mikey, who's a teenager who just wants to graduate and go to prom with the girl she likes. This book is about finding something extraordinary in what you think is an ordinary life.

You see? That's why I am excited for this book! Because like Mikey, I am a normal teenager. But I want to do something extraordinary -- to leave something extraordinary to our wonderful world. I am just so excited about this book and I hope to read it soon! I got this book at National Book Store for Php 359.00, and that's very affordable for a YA novel nowadays!

The last two books are actually memoirs written by two of the most wonderful online content creators for me! I am so excited and I actually just received these books days ago and I bought them from Fully Booked's website!
