Blog Photo 03

Shelumiel fancies himself to be an avid reader but in reality, he is just some book-hoarding bibliophile who reads pretty dang slow. Harper Lee kindled his love of reading through the Finches and Boo, and Annabeth Chase is the closest to a spirit animal he has met behind the pages. He is also enamored of Keira Knightley and thinks John Green is awesome.

The idea might be hackneyed out of all sense and meaning but he would love to one day saunter across the streets of Paris and consume as much macarons as his insatiable appetite would permit. He can go on talking about himself, like what’s his favorite part of a dinner or that he has a penchant for grammatical correctness or that he frequently bugs people with random questions, but he supposes that would be too self-centered.

And oh. If it is a matter of any interest to you, he labors everyday to reduce his carbon footprint. Give him a cup of well-creamed coffee and he’s good!

  1. Hi Shelumiel! I just found your blog and really love it! The photos you use are so high quality and pretty! And we actually have a few things in common. I’m a pretty slow reader as well, and my book buying addiction is real, haha. I also think Keira Knightley is gorgeous. I look forward to reading your future posts! Have an awesome day! πŸ˜€

      1. That’s really hard… but I think I’d have to say P&P just because I adore that book. I really did enjoy her role in Pirates of the Caribbean and Atonement as well though! What about you?
        And I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! But I actually just realized you’ve been nominated before so feel free to ignore this. Here’s a link if you want to take a look anyway though: https://xingsings.wordpress.com/2015/05/14/versatile-blogger-award/


      2. Yeah, well, I had been nominated. But thank you! πŸ™‚

        Hmm. I’d pick my top 5 (since this is really hard): Atonement, The Duchess, Laggies, Pride and Prejudice, and Begin Again. She has a terrific list to choose from!

      3. How could I forget?! I really enjoyed Begin Again as well! And The Duchess is one I have yet to see, I’ll add it to my next-to-watch movie list. I also really like her off-screen personality, she’s hilarious!


  2. Randomly saw you in Goodreads and I thought your books are cool! Guess I made the right decision in clicking up your blog link ‘coz I’m totes loving it! πŸ™‚

    1. Heey. Thank you, Trisha! That’s how I felt before, too, but actually there are so many Filipino book bloggers out there. πŸ™‚ If you want, you can check my post titled Of Bookworms and Books, I featured 11 Filipino bloggers there.

  5. I like to ask people a lot of random questions too. When its really early I just talk and talk, I annoy introverts. But I’m not that annoying of course, I just like to go on about how great I am.
