“Opinion is a flitting thing,

But Truth, outlasts the Sun –

If then we cannot own them both –

Possess the oldest one –”

                                    Emily Dickinson

“The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Do you guys ever lend your books to other people? Do you also worry that they might not take care of it they way you do?

*no books were harmed during the making of this photo please don’t kill me they’re perfectly fine

This was taken at Chapters a book cafe in Dipolog City, Philippines. It’s a magical place near the boulevard which by the way has the most amazing sunset I have ever seen. Oh and I also left a piece of my heart there. *Photo creds to my amazing boyfriend. ✨

wow! this book truly is the holy grail of picture books, and I’m so happy to finally be assured that feminist books are becoming more and more accessible to young children! 

because that’s what this book is - feminist, and unapologetically so. 100 women to inspire the young girls of the world, and 100 women to teach young boys respect towards their peers (and 100 women to make a book blogger very happy) - now that’s something a lot of picture books are simply incapable of doing with their princess, damsel in distress business. 

I have no idea how to even begin telling you how gorgeous every single illustration in this book is, so here are a few of my favourite pages! 


rita levi montalcini - scientist (this was my favourite story!) 

grace o’malley - pirate 

astrid lindgren - author (and a very good one at that, might I add!)

frida kahlo - painter 

ruth bader ginsburg - supreme court justice 

WHO IS A BOOKWORM?

These days, I feel like some people are missunderstanding what does mean being a bookworm.

You don’t need to own hundreds of books to be a bookworm… you don’t need to read twenty books a month to be a bookworm… you don’t need to read the highest literature to be a bookworm.

Everything you need is just a lust for books.

This place used to be a little cafe called “Under the Tree book cafe” hidden in the busy streets of Gov. Pack Baguio City, Benguet Philippines. Unfortunately, I think they relocated somewhere else. *sigh* Anyway, how are you guys doing today?
