A heart that loves in a silent and steadfast way doesn’t usually get center stage in Filipino romance, but Tria focuses the spotlight on it with Songs To Get Over You. The novel shines with an entirely new repertoire of feels, mashed-up with a few pop culture nods (one of which only I apparently got, so far).
The honesty that Loveless. Childless. Clueless. offers about long-term relationships, breakups, and the things that follow afterward is what makes this book a gem of a read. If this is a preview of what Flores’s fictional arsenal reads like, I’m here for more.
Once again, Llanera brought me into her well-crafted and relatable contemporary universe where athletes are celebrities and humans at the same time. Once Upon A Player is honest, raw, and real, delivering a mean spike to the heart at the right moments. Fudge it.
With a narrative that holds you (and never lets go), and the voice of a pure heart that truly loved spilling beautifully throughout its pages, Majesty is a book I will definitely be picking up again, heartache be damned. Get your tissues ready, this one’s offering a storm of feels.
The Boyfriend Backtrack is the kind of fun read you would want to recommend to girlfriends who may (or may not) have a string of interesting exes to look back at over an afternoon cup of coffee. It reads like a lighthearted movie that has humor, a pretty soundtrack, and moments that’ll make you go “Oof, that kinda stings.”
