Dia, Buona & Amir


The Not-So-Literary Heiresses (that's us!) are two sisters and their cousin who share a passion for reading. We are nieces of multi-awarded Filipino author Jose F. Lacaba and the late Eman Lacaba, who is considered the only poet warrior of the Philippines (and whose biopic is being released late this year!).

You would think being related to literary geniuses would sprinkle a little bit of writing talent and ambition our way, but one of us is a bank executive, another one is a broadcast tech on a cruise ship, and another one is in business school. The one thing we've all inherited is an undisputed love for books. This blog is our way of sharing our passion. More?

For book lovers, you can follow us through the different options below. For authors, if you would like a review of your book, please read our review policy first before sending in your request.

Amir's eReader Clean-Out Challenge! #COYER

Challenge accepted!

When I stumbled upon this challenge, I thought it's a great way of finally pushing myself to read the pile of Kindle Freebies (or nearly free) I've one-clicked (damn, that one click button >_<)  and NetGalley eARCs I've requested. So here I am, pushing and challenging myself with a list of books I'll be reading this month!

For more details, please go to the Clean out your E-Reader  Challenge page.

From NetGalley


Kindle Freebies (or Nearly Free)

My goal is to read all of you think I can do it? I sure hope so!
Hello November! Let the challenge begin!

You hear AMIR'S name and you will probably think of a big guy with a mustache. She's not a guy. And (hopefully) does not have a mustache. Despite having traveled 18% of the world, books will always be her greatest escape.

  1. Isn't 1-click buying the absolute worst? It has lead me to so many books that I don't think about getting, I just do (as opposed to my journeys around book stores with books in hand while I decide if I really need them all).

    Good luck getting through your list! It looks like you've got some great titles there :)

  2. I knoooow! It's just too easy to click a button instead of lining up and paying the cash register.

    Thanks Wattle, I think I can do it! Here's to hoping :)

  3. I suffer from one-click-itis, too, and I don't think I'll ever be able to completely clean out my e-reader, but this challenge is still going to be a lot of fun :)

    Nice to meet you Amir. Good luck with your challenge.

    Really eager to read Streaks of Blue and Tangled Tides have seen them on Netgalley but never requested. Can't wait for your reviews! Awesome list! Love all the covers

    Lol I am so bad for this! I plan to do this and then I start doing book tours lol.

  6. Great challenge! I'm scared of joining these things because I'm afraid I won't get around to it with all the review backlog books going on at the moment.

  7. Nice to meet you too Lexxie! Thanks for dropping by other participants blogs! Now I'm off to do the same.

    I'm reading Sempre right now and I am liking it so far!

  8. Thank you! That's another problem for me, sometimes I get drawn in by beautiful covers too. Beautiful cover + interesting blurb + free = in my kindle :)

    I wanted to try a mermaid book, that's why I requested for Tangled Tides and I've read the author before so I wanted to find out if I'll enjoy her other works too.

  9. This is my first time joining! Hopefully, I'll be successful! Thanks for dropping by Ashleigh! Would love to visit your blog too if you have one btw :)

  10. I know! My backlog is actually all NetGalley so I'm glad I'm pushing myself now to read and review them. We'll see how I do!

    1 click buying gets me into so much trouble (as recently as 30 minutes ago...) but hopefully we'll all make serious progress this month! Good luck :-)

  12. I can't see your list of books :(

  13. You can't see the book covers?

  14. LOL, I'm the same! Especially now that a lot of bestsellers are on sale! Good luck to us and thanks for dropping by!

  15. Nope. I only see "From NetGalley" and "Kindle Freebies"... O.o

  16. Good luck with the challenge. I can't wait to see what you think of Goodbye, Rebel Blue. I've been hearing a lot about it.

  17. Good luck with the challenge! I'm especially curious what you'll think of Goodbye, Rebel Blue :) It sounds so interesting!

  18. I see that the one-click button appears to be a universal issue!

  19. I've read 2 and DNF 1...will be reading GRB next! I've been hearing good things! :)

  20. Everybody's been pointing GRB out to me! Will read it next, I really liked Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why and Rebel Blue's blurb reminded me of it.

  21. Especially when the book's on sale or free!

  22. I can't see them either. How strange.

  23.'s affiliate images linked to Amazon. I think next time I'll just save and link the old fashioned way. Strange indeed!
