I'm Not Just A Piece in their Games

Hello everyone! It's 3:59am and I'm still awake but about to go to sleep. I just finished reading Catching Fire and read it for only 2 nights! I finished reading The Hunger Games a few days ago and if you'll do the math, I've finished two of the books in Suzanne Collin's Fantastic Trilogy in less than a week! GOSH  I SERIOUSLY HATE MYSELF FOR HAVING NO SENSE IN STOPPING MYSELF FROM READING AND FINISHING A BOOK even if it means no sleep, no food, and not even a bathroom break! See how addicted I am? Anyway, I just have to let this out because my heart is torn into pieces as all my emotions emerged in reading Catching Fire. OHMGEEEE!!! Hands-down to Suzanne Collins! Gosh, I'm so addicted that I even dreamed about this last night! (more appropriately, last dawn). Anyhow, I'm not gonna talk about the events and my thoughts just yet because I'm planning to do some book reviews. Also, I'll probably not read the Mockingjay this week because I need to sleep.

P.S. If you're wondering about my new hair do, I just want to let you know that I just tucked the front part of my hair short and placed it at the back! Never had a chance to have a full bangs in my lifetime really because the salon people never allow me because of my natural curls. But I'm still getting my hopes up so I just wanted to know what I will look like. haha.

  1. It looks good :)


  2. I haven't really read the book yet. I must find time haha. :)

    RE: I already graduated from UST. I took AB Communication Arts. :)


    1. Yes pretty! Do find time! I swear it's so amazing!!! The story is soooo fantastic and great that all your emotions will emerge! woohoo! haha.

      Awww. sayang naman, graduate ka na pala ATE Chai. hihi. From now on, I'll call you Ate na. hehe

  3. Haha you're funny! Love your curls and your blog!

  4. Why wouldn't they allow bangs? I see a lot of Koreans with curly hair and full bangs. And about the mockingjay, hahaha! i had the same experience. I've come to love the character of Finnick.. and you will too once you're finished with the last book!


    1. Yun nga ee! A lot of Asians (yung mga chinita) actually have full bangs even if they're curly-haired. Nakaka-bad trip. haha. But I'm planning to have bangs talaga no matter what tapos I'll just iron it to straighten. hahaha.

      I'm actually starting to like Finnick already. In the middle of the game in Catching Fire. Hmmm. and now you've mentioned it, OMG! I seriously want to read the last book na! But I need sleep. lol. :D

    2. Hahaha! I had a massive headache after finishing the series kasi ba naman nonstop ako from Catching Fire to Mockinghay. I don't want to spoil anything pero I tell you, nakaka.depress ang ending.

      What if ipa.straight mo nlng bangs mo? I know somebody who does that. :) Natural ba curls mo?

    3. Halaaaaaahhh. ang dami na ngang nagsasabi sakin na nakaka-depress yung ending. OHMGEEEEE. May mamamatay ba? si Katniss? OMG. wait. wag mo sagutin. gusto ko din ma-depress. hahaha.

      I'm planning to do that. Not yet sure though. hehe. And yeeeeap! it's 101% natural. haha =))

  5. I think you look cute with bangs!
    I was addicted o the hunger games and read it all really fast withou breaks just like you. It's so good!

    1. hoorah!~ thanks for the compliment pretty! :)) And yaaaay! So good to know that I'm not the only one!! I love reading about people I'll never be! hehe =)))

  6. i just adore your curls dear ,
    how do you maintain it ?

    1. Hello dear! Thank you so much! I used to hate it though, when I was a litul kiddo. haha! And since so many gorgeous people have been asking me about my curls, I'm planning to post about maintaining it. :)) But right now, what I can say is, comb your hair only once after taking a bath, use shampoo only once/twice/or thrice a month and condition! condition! condition! :)))

      (I'll elaborate on my hair care pretty soon so do come back here! teehee~)

  7. oh i love those books too! i'm done reading mocking jay like 6 month ago and i feel like re-read it because of you :)

    1. awwww. wooopie!! I'm glad I gave you that sudden urge to re-read it! Thanks for letting me know and have fun in your adventure! May the odds be ever in your favor! :D

  8. Hi Rae! Great curls! I love it! I know how you feel that's what I do too when I'm reading! No sense of time at all! Likewise, I finished the hunger games trilogy really quick. It's just too engaging! Hunger Games and Catching Fire are tied as my favorite books in the series. How did you find the story so far? :)


    1. Thank you ate Arra! =)) Grabe, super addicting talaga! Never felt like this way after reading the HP book series and the catcher in the rye and sobrang tagal na nun. haha. hmmm. about the Hunger Games, I don't know how I'll respond 'cause I saw the movie first before reading the book but I'm still disappointed about the movie. The book is waaaay better! Sa Catching Fire naman, nakakabitin! Made me hungry to read more and find how the story will go. Sobrang ganda ng book 2!! Lahat talaga ng emotions nailabas ko. ang ganda talaga grabe! wooh! haha =))

  15. My mom actually sent me the trilogy for Labor Day, and I read through them very quickly as well! I actually just reread them last week, for the fun of it. I wanted to see what I missed the first time I read them. :) I really enjoy them, and I definitely understand why you stayed up and avoiding eating! They're good books!
