Whether you are a student, an employee or you are handling your own business, there are times when you are overwhelmed by simple and complex tasks in our every day lives. Sometimes, it really gets so overwhelming that we do not know where to start anymore. You have to respond to the email but at the same time you are also rushing to finish a presentation. What do you do? What task do you prioritize? As a medical student, I have also struggled in choosing which tasks should I do first and which tasks can I put on hold. That is until I’ve tried using the Eisenhower Box.

ARC Review: We Told Six Lies by Victoria Scott

Remember how many lies we told, Molly? It’s enough to make my head spin. You were wild when I met you, and I was mad for you. But then something happened. And now you’re gone.

But don’t worry. I’ll find you. I just need to sift through the story of us to get to where you might be. I’ve got places to look, and a list of names.

The police have a list of names, too. See now? There’s another lie. There is only one person they’re really looking at, Molly.

And that’s yours truly.

Top 5 Wednesday: Book(ish) Wish List

Hello everyone! I decided to start Top 5 Wednesday once again. I stopped months ago because I was too stressed with med school and I couldn’t find the time to write Top 5 Wednesday post. Now, I’m still stressed with med school but I’m going to do this as a form of a break in…

ARC Review: Little Darlings by Melanie Golding

Lauren’s hopes and dreams of being a new mom are shattered when she encounters a mother’s worst nightmare—someone is threatening to take her children if she leaves them alone. Everyone, from her doctor to her husband, thinks she’s imagining things. From the stark loneliness of returning home after giving birth to the confines of a psychiatric unit, Lauren’s desperation increases as no one will listen to her. Is she mad, or does she know something we don’t?

Loosely inspired by the ghostly folktale “The Brewery of Eggshells,” and giving us a modern take on the idea of changelings, Little Darlings is a taut, gripping read. It reminds us that folk tales do not spring from whimsy; they warn us and teach us, and speak to the fear in us all . . .

Book Review: After Effects by L.J. Greene

This book was so much better than I expected. Aside from Colleen Hoover’s works, adult contemporary romance isn’t really my thing. Usually in these kinds of books, I can’t find anything that sets the book apart from other books. Forgettable is a word I can describe most of what I’ve read on this genre. But this book has surpassed my expectations in a lot of ways.

Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2018

In terms of blogging and reading books, September has been quite uneventful for me. I’ve only read a couple of books and I’ve only posted two book reviews. I’ve just become so busy with medical school that I have so little free time to read. Right now, I usually read a book while waiting for the elevator or I’m in the bus but I really didn’t have time to sit in a corner and just read. I really miss it. Still, I have so much love for reading. I just hope someday I will have more free time for myself to read. I have feeling that’s not anywhere the near future though. Med school’s becoming tougher and tougher every day and it’s getting more overwhelming. Anyways, here’s what I’ve read this September:

Book Review: Fromage a Trois by Victoria Brownlee

First of all, I would like to say that I am not really fond of chick lits. I have only read a few books from this genre so I didn’t really know what I should expect when I started reading this book.

This book is about Ella who was on a long term relationship, She really believed that her boyfriend, Paul, would propose at dinner. But that didn’t happen. Instead, Paul told Ella that he’s leaving to find himself or something. Naturally, this devastates the main character which made her decide to fly to Paris and live there for a year.
