Bo Sanchez, How to Turn Your Passion Into Profit, Rating: 3/5
Title: How to Turn Your Passion Into Profit Author: Bo Sanchez Rating: 3/5 "Entrepreneurs always believe in their own product, if they don't, who will?"

Farenheit 451, Rating: 3/5, Ray Bradbury
Title: Farenheit 451 Author: Ray Bradbury Rating: 3/5 Made me appreciate books even more. It was my first dystopian novel and I must say, I find it bizarre - the setting, the plot, the character roles and the whole novel. Not really my cup of tea. Nevertheless, this novel gave me a much better bond with books. "There must be… Continue reading "Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (Book Review)"

A.A Patawaran, Rating: 3/5, Write Here Write Now
Title: Write Here Write Now Author: A.A Patawaran Ratings: 3/5 Patawaran is a writer motivator. He is an inspiration.

I can somehow relate to it because although I'm not a full pledge writer like them, I've got those times when… Continue reading "Write Here Write Now by A.A Patawaran (Book Review)"
Aleph, Paulo Coelho, Rating: 3/5
Title: Aleph Author: Paulo Coelho Ratings: 3/5 This book gave me so much skepticism and left me with a number of questions after. It's intriguing. It made me ponder about a lot of things and left me so determined to get through every single blur idea that I found in that novel. I haven't read Paulo Coelho's Alchemist which might… Continue reading "Aleph by Paulo Coelho (Book Review)"
