Chachic's Book Nook

About Me


Welcome to Chachic’s Book Nook! My name is Chachic (hard “ch” sounds, first syllable is pronounced like the dance cha-cha while the second syllable is like chick as in a baby chicken) and I’m a Filipino book blogger currently based in Singapore. I enjoy reading all sorts of genre fiction and you can browse through my reviews my genre: Contemporary Romance, Epic Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Magic Realism, Mystery, Retelling, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult Fiction. Click here to see reviews of Filipino fiction. I started blogging because I love recommending my favorite books. Having a blog is a great way to spread the word about books that I’ve enjoyed and to share my thoughts about the books that I’ve read. I’ve also discovered that book blogging is an excellent way to connect with fellow book lovers from all over the world.

I would love to hear from followers so feel free to leave a comment in any of the entries. I do my best in replying to all of the comments in my blog. If you need to contact me, please send an email to chachicsbooknook(at)gmail(dot)com.

My banner was graciously created by my friend Kim Bartolome. Learn more about the process here.

I also started the site Filipino Book Bloggers (FBB) in 2009 as a way for Filipino book bloggers all over the world to connect. Unfortunately, I barely have enough time to work on my own blog so I haven’t been able to update the FBB site in ages.
