Book Review: The Debt Squeeze, How Your Family Can Become Financially-Free by Ron Blue

Reading the book entitled “The Debt Squeeze, How Your Family Can Become Financially Free” by Ron Blue has given me new perspectives on debt. (I got a second-hand copy from Book Sale for Php10.) Who wouldn’t want to live a debt-free life, right? While debt-free living is possible, having some debts isn’t bad at all. As long as you have the means to repay your debts, you should be fine. Or so this book claims.


What I liked about the book was that the author presented debt in a casual way. He also explained the different kinds of debt in layman’s terms. And because he’s a Christian, he also included some verses in the bible conveying God’s words on material wealth. The author also shared some real-life finance stories, how-to-get-out-of-debt tips, borrowing rules, and other money principles. Even if most of the concepts he explained were not new to me, they have refreshed my memory on what it really takes to be debt-free and eventually, financially-free.

Weekend Story: Simple Treats

Last weekend was all about simple treats. I made up for the down time last weekend (when I got sick with cold and cough) and treated myself to some little cravings. These were food and things. I was happy and content and now I’m blogging about it.

The hubby and I drove to Bacoor on Saturday afternoon, a few hours after his classes in grad school. We dropped by S&R Aseana-Baclaran to have some snacks. Choosing what to get for me was a no-brainer. I had been craving for their ice cream in my fave flavor and so I got a cup of it. I also indulged in a muffin. Solved!

Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James

I may not be a voracious reader but I enjoy reading books especially fiction, non-fiction and inspirational ones. If I had ample time in my hands, I would dedicate a good portion of it on reading. After several book-less months in my life, I chanced upon the Fifty Shades Trilogy by British author E.L. James…

…and easily got hooked. I know it’s quite popular and if I heard it right, it has already surpassed the Harry Potter series as the no. 1 fastest-selling paperback of all time in the UK. I got curious when I researched on it online because the theme was something new to me. I’m still on the first book and yet I’m already excited to finish reading the third. That’s how addicting this trilogy is.

Book Review: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffinegger

Warning: This is just a brief, simple, non-intellectual and very personal review of Audrey Niffinegger’s first novel, The Time Traveler’s Wife.

I just finished reading the book “The Time Traveler’s Wife” by Audrey Niffinegger (it’s long overdue I know!). Right now, my heart is filled with a good mix of humanly emotions. I really enjoyed the story of Henry and Clare and admired the greatness of the love they shared.

The Time Traveler’s Wife is a tale of love between Henry and Clare. The guy is a time traveler while the girl is an artist. The story revolves on the complexities of time traveling and how it affects the marriage, the family and more importantly, the spouse of the time traveler.
