go ahead and make believe

Blog Name: go ahead and make believe

Blog URL:

Location: Cebu City

Brief Description: All my life, I have looked to books and movies to escape from the mundane life of everyday things. Books for quiet moments when even the tiniest sounds can jar my most sensitive moods while movies for those when words and pictures are not enough to make me come alive with mirth, pain, passion and verve. Together, they are my sweet escape, the surrender that I’m wont to never regret. Without them, life is but an ordinary walk in the park–not much color, little splash.

This blog is about them – movies and books and the adventures they bring into my world (real or imaginary). A little sprinkling of life and how its treating me so far can also be found. Now, a word to the wise. Not everything here will suit the taste of even the least astute film or book critic, nevertheless these are my thoughts and much like everyone else, I am entitled to them. Having said that, I welcome you all. Hope you enjoy your stay, no matter how short, long, random or accidental it may be. Leave a comment if you please and see you whenever!

Lucy Loves Fully Booked

Blog Name: Lucy Loves Fully Booked

Blog URL:

Location: Philippines

Blog Description: Hi I’m Lucy! And I am Fully Booked’s resident blogger/book maven/reviewer/insider…. whew! I am a lot of these things but I am also a self-confessed geek, book collector, indie lover, graphic novel enthusiast, constant moviegoer and die-hard music fan. You can say that I almost live inside the bookshop because I’m always here, hanging out between the shelves, following the staff around, snooping for tidbits about the goings-on in the literary world. Books have fascinated me since I was very, very small which is why I feel so at home here. Hang around and let’s discover a world of never-ending stories together!

Favorite Authors: Michelle Zink, J.K. Rowling, Harper Lee, Lewis Carroll, Neil Gaiman, Betty Smith and a whole lot more!

A Book Diary

Blog Name: A Book Diary

Blog URL:

Location: Abuyog, Leyte

Brief Description: I love books. I love reading. The blog was created out of my desire to have a spot where I can post about book-related things exclusively. I post things from book covers of books I’ve read with a few commentaries, to images of books and bookshelves, to quotes and poetry, anything I fancy, really, as long as they are book or reading related.

Favorite Authors: Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, Charlotte Bronte, Ernest Hemmingway, Douglas Adams, James Herriot, Robert Graves, William Shakespeare, Fyodor Dostoevsky, D. H. Lawrence, Victor Hugo… Obviously, I love a good many.

Tags: I read mainly the classics, some light SFF, a few contemporaries, and a bit of poetry. My posts are categorized accordingly.

Polilla de Libros

Blog Name: Polilla de Libros


Location: The Southern Part of Metro Manila, mostly. (And in my mind, the world is my playground.)

Brief Description: I’ve come to terms with the fact that my To Be Read pile will never disappear, largely because of the habit of acquiring new books (and not reading them for months, as the need to either work or rest gets in the way). When I find/make time to read a book, I’ll probably write about what struck me most about it. (And for those who wonder, “polilla de libros” is “bookworm” in Spanish.)

Favorite Authors: Milan Kundera, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Kahlil Gibran, Sylvia Plath, J.K. Rowling, Jeanette Winterson, Haruki Murakami, Banana Yoshimoto, Muriel Barbery, Marisha Pessl, Margaret Atwood, Elizabeth Kostova, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Stieg Larsson, and Sophie Kinsella (for my chick lit fixes). I also have a soft spot for poetry.
