Three guesses to where I’m going next. Starts with an M. Ends with a U. Has a lechon named after it. #travel
Twenty-something travel blogger Five thinks she has hit the jackpot when she gets invited to glittering Macau for an all-expense-paid bloggers tour. Think majestic old churches, sparkling casinos, exhilarating bungee jumps, and the world’s most unforgettable egg tarts. The trip is practically perfect, except for one little glitch. She gets assigned to be travel buddies with Jesse, the world’s most infuriating photo blogger, and it’s definitely war at first sight.
Will Five let Jesse turn her dream vacation into a total nightmare? Or will falling in love be on the itinerary?
All’s Fair in Blog and War was an enjoyable 107-paged light and sweet read.
Before I proceed in divulging my thoughts about All’s Fair in Blog and War, I would just like to share with you on how I was able to acquire a copy of it. It came to me as a sweet surprise, actually. Yesterday I received a direct message on Twitter from Ana Tejano (Author of Fall like Rain, which I currently reviewed and featured here on my blog) saying that I won from her giveaway. Apparently my book review for Fall like Rain was the 50th review posted on Goodreads and she has this on-going secret giveaway in which to reward the ones who posted the 49th and 50th review. What were the chances of me getting this lucky? Probably this one time! She asked me to pick any book from #romanceclass as a prize and I got way too flustered. There are a lot of books that I’ve been eyeing from #romanceclass (others are already sitting on my Kindle waiting to be read) and so I asked Ana if she has any suggestion. Then she asked what I’m up for reading and in which I told her that I feel like reading a book under the friends to lovers or love and hate relationship trope.
That’s when this violet-covered book popped into my mind! I told Ana that I’ve chosen All’s Fair in Blog and War by Chrissie Peria (since I’ve been wanting to read it) and she proceeded to gift it to me on Kindle. So before yesterday, I wouldn’t have thought of being able to breeze through this book today. Yes, I breezed through it!
Thank you again, Ana for being my Kindle fairy!
All’s Fair in Blog and War follows the story of travel blogger, Five Cuevas, who got invited (along with few selected bloggers) by the Macau Tourism Board for a familiarization trip to the said place. The trip aims to introduce the bloggers and have them enjoy Macau’s different offerings in terms of culture, cuisine, entertainment and attractions. It’s going to be an all-paid expense trip – from the accommodations, airfare, meal and so on. They are going to enjoy the place without spending a dime. Lucky them! Well, except for the pasalubongs. In turn they have to feature their experiences in Macau on their respective blogs which is basically still a win on their side considering the traffic that they could get out of it.
