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.

Review Policy


Before sending your request, please read our review policy first. Thank you!

Review requests from authors, publicists and publishers are welcome! 

Our reviews are honest and we do not receive any compensation in exchange for a review. We also strive to be fair; if we do not like your book, we will explain why in a manner that will not demean the book and the author. For your information, this is our Rating System:

5 Stars: Absolute PERFECTION.
4.5 Stars: Amazing!
4 Stars: Love it!
3.5 Stars: Like it!
3 Stars: It's okay.
2.5 Stars: Almost okay. Almost.
2 Stars: Needs work.
1.5 Stars: Didn't like it.
1 Star: Hated it.

We reserve the right not to review books if they are not within our reading preferences, or if they contain material that we do not agree with.

For guidance, these are the genres we prefer:

Young Adult
New Adult
Chick Lit
Mystery, Suspense & Psychological Thrillers

We also enjoy reading the following genres, but we will only accept them for review on a case by case basis:

Science Fiction
Post Apocalyptic
Historical Romance
Short Story Compilation

Although we may occasionally read the following genres, it is most likely that we will not accept them for review:

Self Help

If you would like us to review your book, please contact us via the form below. You can either send us ebooks or hard copies (hardcover/paperbacks) of your books and ARCs.

If you wish to email us directly, send it to lacababookblog @ with the same details as those requested in the webform below:

Is this a series?
If this is a series, is the ending a cliffhanger?
Hard copy or ebook copy
Format of ebook

If you are sending us an ebook copy, please do not attach them in your initial email, we will only request a copy if we are interested in reading and reviewing your book.

If you want your book reviewed by a particular reviewer, you can message them via their Goodreads page:


We will only respond if we accept your request and sometimes it will take us some time to do so. We're budding reviewers and welcome your requests, but depending on work, school, or other commitments, it may sometimes take us a bit of time to reply.

Accepting a request doesn't necessarily mean that we will review your book, especially if we don't get into it. A No Review is better than a Did Not Finish review, in our opinion.

All our reviews are linked to the books' respective Goodreads pages via their book covers. We also have purchase links at the bottom of the book's summary from Amazon, The Book Depository, and Smashwords when applicable. If you would like a different link added to your book, feel free to let us know.

Aside from this blog, we will also post our reviews and ratings on Goodreads, Smashwords, and Amazon, when applicable. There are also some instances when we will only post our review on Goodreads and Amazon.
