Wicked Photo Diary is a feature on the blog where I recap what happened in my life, bookish and non-bookish, in the form of my Instagram photos. Do follow me on Instagram here.
Well, unbelievable. I mean, whaaaaat? That's it. First 31 days of the month is already over! Goodness gracious! That was fast. January started off good for me. I found time to read the books that I bought from last year and my TBR pile is thanking me for my self-control and my perseverance in reading books off of the pile.
I also have a special announcement to make. I'll be moving to the province starting this February. For those unfamiliar with Philippine geography, I'll be moving to Cebu, a province in the South that can only be accessed from the Philippine capital, Manila, either by sea or air. It's far away from Manila, far away from my friends and the life I've lived for twenty one years in the city. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. So I'm enjoying the last few weeks I'll be spending in the city before I move. All part of life.
Here's how the first month of 2016 has treated me.
January 1, 2016
Pretty foggy due to the fireworks from New Year's Eve and the fact that it;s always foggy in the mornings.

First read of 2016. Absolutely loved this book. Things just got really interesting for all the characters and damn, I can't wait for Frost Like Night!
January 8, 2016
I just re-downloaded Spotify on my iPad that day and somehow, this song has been stuck in my head.
January 9, 2016
Got to watch Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens with Anna, another Star Wars fan. And wow, the movie was amazing. So many theories in my head that'll last me until Episode VIII comes out. PS: I'm obsessed with Kylo Ren. Dark Side all the way~
January 12, 2016
I've heard so much about I'll Give You The Sun than The Sky Is Everywhere. But this is the first Jandy Nelson book I picked up. It was amazing.
January 14, 2016
I had to reread this again because I forgot how things went down with Lara Jean and Peter K. It was a nice trip down memory lane afterwards.
January 15, 2016
It was such a sad day. I was wasting my time on Youtube, watching cooking videos to past time and make myself sleepy. I found myself on Facebook and the first thing that came on my news feed was a Page To Premiere article about the passing of Alan Rickman. At first, I didn't want to believe it. I waited for the major new organizations to confirm it. And they did. It was like my world fell apart. The world lost a great human being. A few days ago, singer David Bowie passed away and then it was Alan Rickman's turn. I will always remember him. Always.

I was reeling after reading this. I mean, ugh, I love you, Peter K. I wish you were real.
January 18, 2016
The angel lore in Angelfall is superb. I knew I made a good decision buying the trilogy in one go, something I don't do, at last year's Manila International Book Fair. This isn't your typical angel fantasy story.
January 19, 2016
I didn't even read any contemporary in between because I was desperate to know what happened next!!!
January 22, 2016
End of Days was explosive! Explosive ending for this phenomenal trilogy! A must read!
January 23, 2016
Stocked up on my romance reads written by Filipino authors! So excited to read them all!
January 24, 2016
It took a long time for me to finish this because I was busy reading contemporaries on my iPad. But, oh, this book reminded me of the ship scene in the movie Stardust. And to think, Magonia is real! *stares up the sky*

Got this baby at 20% off! Sweet deal, I know. I'm a little bit confused with this book but it means I just need to be focused with this book!
January 30, 2016
Took a photo of the sunshine before it went behind the clouds.
Send off party number one with Neil and Coleen! Had a blast book shopping with the two. I will definitely miss the two of them!
January 31, 2016
Books, books and more books. Would you believe that most of these titles don't even cost more than $5?!
