Bibliophilia (22) To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

This’s a very cliche good-girl-falls-for-bad-boy-who-turns-out-not-being-bad-after-all story, but it’s ok. It’s sweet and cute and dreamy like teen stories should be.

I don’t think I want to read the sequel(s) though. Maybe I’ll watch the movie. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Bibliophilia (21): Uncommon Type: Some Stories



Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

I didn’t think twice before buying this book, because obviously, Tom Hanks. Unfortunately, it is boring. Very boring. The stories are dull, lacking an edge to them and the narrative is too monotonous, almost robot-like.

But here’s a magical trick: try reading it in Tom Hanks’ voice. The effect is dramatic, I even bought the audiobook narrated by non other than Hanks himself. It actually put a smile on my face. πŸ™‚

Bibliophilia (20): They Both Die at the End


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Damn. That was brutal in ways I can’t begin to describe. The kind of of books that leave you hiding in your room, because you would look so lame crying at your phone screen.

You venture into this story knowing full well how it ends (spoiler alert: they both die at the end), but when it comes, you’re never ready for it. No one is ever ready for death. And it broke my heart.

What would you do if you knew it was your last day to live?

Bibliophilia (19): The Hero of Ages (Mistborn #3)


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Well, this book has been quite a journey. A very intricately-woven, emotionally-charged trek. I’m impressed by Sanderson’ writing.

I had some difficulty, however, relating to that cosmic turn of events; the clash of gods and divine powers. I would have loved a more human conflict, or rather a more believable villain (at least to me), for unlike the author portrayed, I believe gods make no mistakes. Gods don’t fail. And most importantly, if you’re fighting the end of the world, an apocalypse, there’s no stopping it. Some ends are bound to happen eventually.

Nice try though. Now off to a new journey.

Bibliophilia: (18) The Well of Ascension (Mistborn #2)


β€œWe’re going to do what Kelsier taught us, Vin. We’re going to survive.”

— Brandon Sanderson.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I want to apologize to Sanderson. It’s so unfair that it took me 2 years, 4 months, and 24 days to finish this book. I loved the way things escalated and the way characters developed. I promise that I’ll finish Book 3 in days, and not in years. πŸ™‚

Bibliophilia: (17) The Final Empire (Mistborn #1)


Image source: amazon.com

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Powerful. Vivid. Beautiful.

It’s been a very long while since the last time I couldn’t put a book down. Sanderson just knows how to “Pull” (pun-intended) you into the picturesque world of his.

There were times, however, when I thought I couldn’t see much into Kelsier’s character, but as it turns out, it was the very thing Sanderson intended.

I was a little annoyed by a few monotonous lines and some overused words, but meh, it’s nothing against the piece of art this book is.

All In Your Head: short stories about mental illness.


Picture9

Here’s my newest collection of short stories. The book is inspired by real people suffering mental disorders, and aims to raise awareness against stigma. I write this not only as a psychiatrist, but also as a patient.

The first story in this book is mine.
