The Weekly Roundup is a meme created for Sporadic Reads to talk about the week that went by in the blog, share links from around the net, which also includes my Weekend Readings, and my weekly Stacking The Shelves.
Annyeong Haseyo! [안녕하세요]
I hope everyone’s doing fine on your end. This week, the Philippines was devastated by typhoon Glenda. It was pretty scary on Wednesday morning because I have a hatch door going to the rooftop, and it was rattling like crazy, as if it’s going to fly off. I am very grateful that it didn’t. A lot of people had it worst. My family is okay 👌
Another news that broke my heart is Malaysian flight “MH17”. My heart goes out to the families and friends of those who are affected. Be strong!

I’ve seen the movie, so now, I’ll read the book!
Stacking The Shelves #033
Book Meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It may be physical or virtual copies of books.
I know the book is always better, but what I like about film adaptations is they give us a version of the book that we can all share.
