Life Recently #8

READING// I’ve finished reading Confess by Colleen Hoover. One word for that book: OMG. Every Colleen Hoover book is just amazing. I love all of them but my favorite of hers is Hopeless and Ugly Love. Now, I’m reading Some Boys which is also featured in my Books I Want To Read.

LISTENING// I am obsessed with Kodaline’s All I Want. It’s not a new song and I’ve heard it before but I heard it again one day and the obsession starts again. It makes me cry every time plus the lyrics is beautiful. Bittersweet.

WATCHING// I have been binge watching MTV’s Catfish. It’s an interesting show where they help people meet their online love who’s acting fishy where they make excuses to avoid Skyping and meeting in person. Most of them only pretended to be the person in the photos. It’s crazy! Be careful who you invest your feelings with and watch out for the red flags.

FEELING// I’m often bored most of the time but there were days where I feel excited and hopeful for my future plans.

EATING//  Me and my mom started a ritual where we have brunch on a restaurant we haven’t been before every Sunday. Last Sunday, we went to a cafe called Book Latte where you can borrow books and read. We ordered belgian waffles, hash browns, egg, bacon and iced Macchiato.

PLANNING// We’re having a getaway with my family in Bacolod for a week. I’m in charge of the itinerary and I’m beyond excited. Do you know any place to recommend there?

    Where is book latte?! I need to go there!!! On the other hand, your post just made me more convinced to check out Colleen Hoover’s woks. 🙂 Hope you get to sort out your IT in Bacolod soon!

      Thank you! Book Latte is here in Iloilo City. It’s just a quaint little cafe but I like it there. Colleen Hoover books are all a roller coaster of emotions. Read Hopeless first!

    LOL I love Catfish. I made Joey watch it when we were in Singapore and he was like THIS IS THE WORST SHOW EVER, IT MAKES PEOPLE SAD or something like that.

      Haha Yeah. It really is sad but it’s better to let them know that they’re being Catfished. There are some happy endings though. It’s just stupid how people can invest their feelings to someone who won’t even video chat.

    OMG, Book Latte sounds like an amazing place. So sad it’s all the way in Iloilo 🙁 We need more casual cafes!

    I’ve read Slammed and Point of Retreat by Hooven and didn’t quite enjoy it. I hope Confess is better. I wish my mom and I had brunch, instead, I eat like 6 times a day while she tries to eat twice. Those waffles look great :DD

      You should read Hopeless. Slammed didn’t fancy me much as much as Hopeless and her other books The waffles tastes so yummy!

    This show sounds so interesting . I have heard a lot about catfishing but seeing real cases would be a lot interesting.
    I totally need to listen this song!

    I watched an episode or two of Catfish and wow! The lengths people go to. Tsk. Although I read somewhere that it’s the Catfish who approach the show, not the Catfished. So maybe they do get tired of lying lol

      Yeah, I’ve seen that episode where the Catfish itself contacted the show but the show immediately knew that he’s a Catfish. haha.

    OMG I’m so interested in going to Book Latte! I’ve never heard of that cafe before but as a bookworm, I am so excited to go there and I want to thank you for letting us know about it! 🙂 I also want to watch Catfish because it sounds interesting and funny. Haha! I might download the episodes soon or at least watch the other episodes on TV. xx
