Biography

Hey everybody, my name is Abby!
Since you're reading my blog, maybe you'd like to know a little bit about the person behind it. :)

Let’s start with the basic; I’m 5’4, and secretly hoping to add some height. I have black hair and eyes, with specks of navy blue around the pupil. I had a wonderful Filipino complexion, brown, but sometimes, I look whiter than usual or should I say paler. I have a medium-sized stature.

I love reading but I've been a really avid reader just this mid-2010. And the novel that convinces me to read again is: TWILIGHT by Stephenie Meyer. And this blog started August 2011, yeah..I’m new.. You probably know my reading preference :), so let’s proceed.

I'm currently eighteen since September 8! I play musical instruments, I play just a little, piano, guitar, tambourine, lyre and I also sing and do interpretative dances. I was a soprano in my high school choir and I am also part in my church's Praise and Worship team. I draw and sketch too.

I graduated high school on March 30, 2010. I am currently in college taking up Bachelor of Science in Accountancy, each semester earning 29 units. I am a writer in our school publication, a news writer, feature and sports sometimes, since in high school by the way. I’m a blogger and a member of review/book sites such as Goodreads, LibraryThing, Powell’s.com, Amazon Associates and Booksneeze.

(Don’t read this, I’m probably bragging) I’ve been consistent top 1 since my first grade. I also graduated having all the awards, both academic and extra-curricular, all our subjects of course. Sometimes, I do believe my teachers do love me..:D I was president in Student Government and the only student-representative in our School Government Council. And since, third grade I’d been the president of my class. I’d been assigned Associate editor when I was a mere freshman in high school. I’m always part of the top 10 of any exam I take, but I credit this to God’s will. :) I think, I got quite popular then, both because I’m probably friendly, and God is smiling down on me!

I joined Boy Scout and Girl Scout both. I was part of my high school’s ADUSAY (a Filipino acronym for Song, Drama and Dance). I was part of the Red Cross Team and Band Corp, I’m a cheerleader too..:)

I love music and books (with signatures). I love collecting stamps and bookmarks. My favorite color is black and white (that figures!), I also considered blue as my favorite. I love bracelets, lots of them. I love laughter and the rain.

I love pets, but unfortunately, no one truly lasts..:( I have a pet dog, named Blackie (figures!), but he got lost.

I have a sister who’s in the future might be taller than me, she’s 5’2 now and had just turned 12 (well, for Filipinos, she’s tall already. I have a younger brother, 3 years of age, who’s truly a blessing since we didn’t really think mom could still conceive.

English is certainly not my first nor second language, so if you find some mistakes, I’m sorry. Feel free to correct me, and I won’t be offended.

And that's it. If you have any questions about me personally feel free to comment:)

  • Love Lust and Petty Crime on Aug. 10, 2011

    A really great book even if i'm still at the middle of the story..! The title of this book "Love, Lust, and Petty Crime" says it all. This is a story about friendship with four people (Jurgen, Voula, River, and Emmet) meeting at an insurance company. All are employed there and all become involved in one way or another. Twisted sisters, twisted brothers, she wants him, he wants the other, but, the characters are interrelated in a really good way..one that makes you think..if this is even possible..but well.,.yah..the author proves it does so... this is a great tongue twister with bends and curves that make you read it to the end to know what will really happen. but then..their friendship and love for each other,,is the only thing that makes them work this mayhem out.. this is a funny book and would make you realize and appreciate life better...
  • LilyPad Princess on Aug. 14, 2011

    a cute cute story-probably would make a child awake til the story's end.. i know the story is for children..but adults and teenagers could be lured into it too.. a different twist on the story of "the frog prince" and the "princess and the frog".. the story is well written and easy to understand..a really good one..and the turning events are really shocking..remarkable.. probably when someone ask me the story of "the princess and the forg"..i might say this one..!:D Princess Gwendolyn's life just got very strange. As always, there's Jack, her royal pain of a brother, but add Lily, the frog-turned-princess, and a Royal Ball to find Lily's family, and Gwendolyn is suddenly one busy girl. Now, someone or something, is attacking the castle. Is the kingdom safe, or is Jack right -- does it have something to do with the frogs?
  • Shelter (Blood Haze: Book One) on Aug. 14, 2011

    Two guys, one vampire girl, and two dark secrets that threaten to tear her world apart. this is a good book..another twist from common vampire stories..this time the girl is the vampire..and two human boys-human?(find out the secret!) it's a great take on vampire phenomenal--twilight fans-read this book! stories like this tend to get the attention of teen readers..and i'm one of those..a good story and a new one-in it's sense... remarkable and fascinating-a one-read-book! Alice Wright is a young vampire going to high school for the first time at the age of seventeen at the behest of her eccentric mother. In many ways, she's more afraid of the human students than they would be of her. She feels lost and awkward in human society, but she soon develops a strong bond with the cousin of one of her human classmates, nineteen year old Kai. He is beautiful, but somewhat of an enigma. She discovers a dark secret in Kai's life, and she instantly wants to shelter him from the pain that has tormented him all his life. Then she meets Maksim Augustine, the incredibly gorgeous guy who seems more like he should be a model than a high school student. She is overwhelmingly attracted to him physically, but her love for Kai causes her to continually push him away. Eventually, she discovers a frightening secret about Max, too. But Max's secret threatens to destroy everything...
