This recap was requested by a few of my readers– I’ll be telling you what went down the past week, in and out of Flip That Page, and give you a sneak peek preview of sorts on what to expect for the week to come. Happy blogging! 🙂
ON THE BLOG
I shared ten of my favorite books with futuristic settings.
I discussed the real importance of a blog’s numbers and statistics.
I reviewed an ARC copy of Elyssa Patrick’s Stay With Me.
My brother and I held a debate on tragic endings.
I participated in Jamie’s A To Z Bookish Survey.
IN MY WORLD
I had a pretty lax week at school. The exam week just ended, so we simply discussed answers to the periodic exams and brushed up on previous topics. Needless to say, I was able to catch up on some much needed sleep.
I received my first ever failing card grade. To be fair, I knew it was coming, although I do have to start exerting more effort so as not to fail a second time. It’s my last year in high school, and I’m trying to keep a clean slate.
I got approved for 9 ARCs, which I am completely thrilled about. However, I got declined for a whole bunch of others, mostly because the publisher had an issue with the fact that I live in the Philippines. Thankfully enough, this didn’t entirely crush my ego (It’s not my fault I’m Asian).
