to my present and future followers: thank you and i'm sorry

A mark of a good book and movie for me, is if I want to reread/rewatch it over and over again and never grow tired of it.  

Somehow I have the following:

  1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  2. Ain’t She Sweet? by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
  3. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
  4. The Harry Potter series (books and movies)
  5. The Lord of the Rings movies
  6. Meet the Robinsons
  7. Easy A
  8. Mulan
  9. Howl’s Moving Castle
  10. Spirited Away
  11. No Reservations
  12. 27 Dresses

And probably a lot more but these are foremost on my mind.

Day 20 - Favorite romance book 

If you ask me my favorite color, I would have difficulty answering. Ask me my favorite ice cream flavor or favorite band or favorite brand, I can’t pick one. But when it comes to romance, I have one stand-out favorite. It’s Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ Ain’t She Sweet? 


Sugar Beth Carey, the one-time “wild child” of Parrish, Mississippi, returns home to face a slew of old enemies lining up to get even. Worst of all is Colin Byrne, the town’s dark prince, the man whose career Sugar Beth destroyed. Now he’s a famous novelist living in Sugar Beth’s old mansion, and he’s using his writer’s imagination to figure out how to bring the town’s former princess to her knees.

Day 13 - Your favorite writer 

Book writers? I don’t have A favorite. I have several! Neil Gaiman, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Paulo Coelho, Markus Zusak, JK Rowling, Georgette Heyer, among many others. A favorite for me is when I want to read everything they’ve read and go crazy for their works.

My one favorite writer was Max Soliven(1929-2006), a prominent Filipino journalist whose daily editorial columns I read with a passion. I was sad when he died, which meant I couldn’t read his witty and excellently written opinions column. God bless his soul.
