Nabili ko ang librong ito sa Shopee shop ng PSICOM sa murang halaga dahil may diskwento noong mga araw na iyon. Kanais-nais naman ang pamagat dahil gusto ko rin mag-sulat ng sarili kong libro.

Wala ako intensyon na bilhin ito kasi mukang pambata (tignan yung cover). Pangalawang sulyap ko sa cover, sabi ko 'ay! parang may bastos..', e hinayaan ko na, add na yan sa Cart, malaki naman diskwento ng mga panahon na iyon sa Shopee account ng PSICOM. Expected ko magsisisi kahit di ko pa nababasa (napakasama ko). Pero nang buklatin ko na at mabasa ang sumunod na mga pahina, naaliw ako ng husto. Nakakatawa pala ito!

Published date:
ISBN: 9789715188210

Dalawang taon na pala ang nakalipas mula noong basahin ko ang unang serye ng librong ito. Mababasa ang aking rebyu sa unang serye sa sumusunod na pooksasapot - https://www.literateknolohitura.com/2016/11/moymoy-lulumboy-book-1-ang-batang-aswang-book-review.html

Nang dahil sa librong ito, una kong na-meet na personal ang mismong may-akda na si Kuya Jun, noong nakaraang Metro Manila Book Fair 2017. Naipapirma ko pa nga ito, pero nang basahin ko na kamakailan lang, natuklasan ko na may printing error ang nabili ko. Nawawala ang Chapter 00 hanggang 01 pero buti na lang at may libre kopya sa Wattpad na opisyal na nakalathala dun, siguro draft yung andoon.. makikita dito ang online copy sa sumusunod na pooksasapot - https://www.wattpad.com/132386610-moymoy-lulumboy-book-2-ang-nawawalang-birtud

Book Review: Shardon's Guise by Stephen Lucas Lacroix | The First Song, Book 2

shardon's guise front coverTitle: Shardon's Guise
Subtitle: The First Song
Series no. 02
Author:
Publisher: Stephen Lucas Lacroix
Published date:
ASIN: B079SK9LT1
Genre: Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Epic Fantasy
Language: English
Buy: Shardon's Guise (The First Song Book 2)

Shardon's Guise is the second book of The First Song series. I can say the story is getting more interesting with this one. As the heroes of Unibeltrasia is prepping their battle against the Xerxecians, another mysterious enemy attacks their kingdom's tombs. With the enemy's baffling motive as to why it's hitting their ancestry, some of the Unibeltrasian heroes are already suspecting hostility within their circles. With this new conflict, their friendship will be tried again.

Cutting my slight spoiler, here are some strong points about the book:
- I'm already liking the development of the story
- exposing the story of their origins/past
- the ending makes me anticipate to read the third book more

Lastly, my suggestions: as I've already suggested in my review of the first book, a map of their kingdom would be a good addition. Also, a glossary of terms and characters for Young Adult readers. And I still don't like the cover art. I'm just not fond of realistic or 3D art cover for books.


I'm giving this book a rating of 4.0 / 5.0

Book Review: Project Loki, Volume 1, Part 1 by AKOSIIBARRA | Wattpad Book

project loki vol 1 part 1 rear cover artproject loki vol 1 part 1 opening page



Mystery at Crime ang genre ng aklat na ito inspired by Sherlock Holmes. You know Sherlock Holmes, he solves the mystery of the crime. Kung di ka pamilyar kay Sir Arthur Conan Doyle na may-akda ng Sherlock Holmes series, kung pamilyar ka kay Detective Conan, e para sa iyo ang aklat na ito.

Kung seryoso kang mambabasa, maipapayo ko lang na huwag mong basahin ang librong ito nang literal o kaya po ay wag mo na lamang po basahin. May mga eksena kasi sa libro na imposibleng mangyari sa totoong buhay o kaya naman mga reaksyon na dapat ibigay ng mga tauhan pero hindi nila ibinibigay. Nasabi ko ito dahil may mga parte sa istorya na dapat tumawag sila ng pulis, o kaya dapat kasuhan ng arson yung isang karakter pero wala. At ang weird pa, may mabibigat na krimen na nangyayari sa campus pero business as usual pa rin sila. Ni mga relatives nga nung mga biktima parang walang alma, sa dami nila, di mararamdaman na may complaint against sa school. Talaga sigurong ganoon, para maakit yung target audience na mga Young Adult at hindi ang mga Mature audience.

Dahil gusto ko ang istorya ni Sherlock Holmes, bibigyan ko naman nang konsiderasyon at magandang puntos ang nobelang Project Loki. Tutal maayos naman mag-sulat ang may-akda ng Finglish (Filipino/English).
Kaya ang puntos ko dito sa librong ito ay: 3.5 / 5.0

Salamat!
