Today is my birthday, yaaay! And I have some bittersweet but exciting news. I have decided to take some time off bookstagram. Probably the whole month. I'll probably still going to pop up on insta story, so I'll not be completely off, but I don't think I will post any new pictures in November. The reason to that is because there are so many things going on in my personal life and it's kind of affected my health so I need to balanced everything and just let myself rest for once. Now, the exciting news is while I'm "away", I decided to held a giveaway to celebrate my birthday as well 😄

One day late, but here's my October Wrap Up. I couldn't finished all my TBR, but I still read some pretty great books so that's okay. Last month I read: - Snow and Rose by Emily Winfield Martin (5⭐)
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith (3⭐)
- I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L. Sanchez (4⭐)
- Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury (4.7⭐) My favorite read is "Rose and Sbow" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes" 💕
🔸
I don't think I'll do any challenge this month, since I'm determined to read more books. I might even take a little break from bookstagram but we'll see...
🔸
QOTD: What's your favorite read last month?

#FanaticalBirdOctober Day 31: "Scariest Book You've Read" (It's Halloween!). Anything by Junji Ito. Swear to God, those books created some nightmares that I wish I'd never have again. Btw, I'm skipping Day 30 for now, since I'm still trying to finished Season of Secrets by Sally Nicholls and I'm determined to finished it before midnight 💪 Wish me luck! 😀

Day 29 of #FanaticalBirdOctober is "October Haul". I'm on a book buying diet until maybe the end of this year. But then again I'm pretty suck when it comes to commitments so... 😂😂😂
🔸
I'm still waiting for two more books to arrive and one of them is a birthday gift from a friend, since next month is my birthday. Though I'm not sure if it's gonna be here on time for my birthday because International shipping took a loooong time 😂

#FanaticalBirdOctober Day 28: "Favourite Villain". One of my all time favourite is The Jackal from Red Rising trilogy. So cunning and so evil, I love to hate him.
🔸
Speaking of favorite villain, I watch Thor: Ragnarok today and I really like Hela. Also, this is maybe the best Thor movie and definitely my most favourite of the three. Taika Waititi really nailed it this time 👌

The third and last entry for #lumieloweenparty 💀😎
🔸
Gotta do the cracked Other Mother down to the nails 💅 I did a mistake of wearing this fake nails before I paint the cracks on my face, it was hard to held the brush with those nails 😥
🔸
Other Mother topped Elphaba from Wicked and Chesire Cat from Alice in Wonderland this year. Since it's Halloween I thought I better chose an evil character so I pick Other Mother. And creating this looks is so fun! I was having a migraine when I did the first look, but I was so focused I almost didn't feel it. Maybe doing something that I love is a better medicine than lay down and do nothing.

Second last minute entry for #lumieloweenparty 👻
🔸
This is the next phase of Other Mother. My brother and I love Coraline since we saw the movie years ago. And my love for Coraline's story come back this year when I read the book. And I have to say that I like the book better than the movie. That's why I do the Other Mother looks this year 😁

Last minute entry to #lumieloweenparty 😝 🔸
I always do some Halloween looks since 2 years ago. This year one of the character that I want to be is the Other Mother from Coraline. I believe I already hinted that I want to be her on my last post about Coraline 😂. I did three different looks of Other Mother and I will post the other two as well 😉

How is your Saturday? I ended up laying on my bed doing nothing other than listening to some music because this migraine just keep coming back. But it's getting better bow, so I think I'm going to do something fun. Haven't decide what yet, maybe watch Strange Things or read some books. I hope you guys have a better Saturday than mine 😊

Good morning from this side of earth! Waking up with a migraine is not a good way to start my Saturday. Well at least coffee helps to ease it a bit ☕
🔸
Day 26 of #FanaticalBirdOctober is "Witches or Wizards". This post makes me want to listen and sing to Wicked album. Weirdly enough I found that singing and listening to some music always ease my migraine. So I think I'm going to do that now, toodles!

“I just feel like it’s unfair, that my whole life is unfair, like I was born into the wrong place and family. I never feel like I belong anywhere.”
🔸
Hullo guys, I'm back with another book review. As usual you can read my full review on my blog, the link is on my bio 😉
🔸
Synopsis: Julia Reyes loves to write, and she always dreams of moving out from her parents’ house, go to college and see the world. But that’s not how a ‘Perfect Mexican Daughter’ supposed to be. ‘Perfect Mexican Daughters’ do not go away to college and move out of their parents’ house. They’re never abandon their family, they dedicated their life for their family like Julia’s older sister – Olga. But her sister Olga is dead and Julia’s family has been shattered to pieces. Julia’s mother channel her grief into pointing out every possible way Julia has failed, and compare her to Olga. No on in her family seems to acknowledge that Julia is broken by this tragedy too. But then Julia found out that Olga hides another life from her family, another personality that she never shows to any of her family member. Julia then determined to find out if there’s more to her sister story while dealing with not being a ‘Perfect Mexican Daughter.’
🔸
I'm not even a Mexican and yet this book hits so close to home. I found lots of similarity between Julia and my younger self. This is definitely a great book to pick if you’re looking for a raw and more on the dark side diverse YA book, I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter might be one of the best book to pick. Reading Julia’s journey in this book makes me understand why this book has been long-listed for National Book Award for Young People Literature in USA this year. It’s a gripping book filled with diversity, angst, grief and great human relationship depiction.
🔸
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me a digital copy of this book in exchange of unbiased review.

I just got home and the first thing I do is teaching my brother how to play Werewolf and it seems like he really likes it. We'll probably play it with our cousins on the next family gathering 😁

Day 25 of #FanaticalBirdOctober is "currently reading". I'm currently switching between these two books. At this point I don't think I'll be able to finished all my October TBR because work has been such an itch-bay 😂

#FanaticalBirdOctober Day 22: "I'd like to cosplay as". This Halloween I'd like to cosplay as an iconic character from Coraline. I think I'll only do some make up and face painting though, since I don't think I have the clothes that match this character 😂

Day 20 of #FanaticalBirdOctober is "Bloody Read" and I think Battle Royale is perfect for it.

QOTD: As we're getting closer to Halloween, do you have certain spooky books you're planning to read?

Morning guys, it seems like today is going to be a hectic day at the office. Which is sucks because I feel like I'm about to catch a cold. This hot and cold weather is not good for my health 😥
🔸
Day 17 of #FanaticalBirdOctober is Red Books. I don't know why Catching Fire looks so orange here, but it's actually redder than this. 🔸
