Wounded Little Gods by Eliza Victoria

This is a late blog post but I still wanted to put it out there. Last week this was the book I carried in my bag to read while waiting in queue or while commuting. I made a pledge at the start of the year that I’ll read more books written by Filipino authors as much as the foreign ones I read.

And I was certainly not disappointed with Wounded Little Gods.  It’s an amazing mix of scientific facts and data meshed with small town folklore, local flavor and heritage.


Eliza Victoria is a Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards winner for Literature and the Philippines Free Press Literary Awards and National Book Award-winning author (Dwellers 2014),  her works have appeared in several online and print publications, including Daily Science Fiction, Stone Telling, Room Magazine, Story Quarterly, The Pedestal Magazine, High Chair, and the Philippine Speculative Fiction anthologies.*

I’ll be posting my full review real soon!




Hello there! Thanks for stumbling through my little abode here. I’m self-confessed late bloomer voracious reader. Been doing a lot of catching up lately since I let me to-read pile grow a mile (a hundred miles) long. I’m in love with the written word although I have no formal training in writing. I just try to jot down random ramblings and thoughts in my mind before they escape me. My tastes in books aren’t discriminating, I can read almost anything with just a minor exception in the horror genre. Since I scare easily, I tend to back away from that. I read mostly fiction, from young adult, new adult (the older version of YA), sci-fi, thriller, mystery, action-adventure to of course romance (ahem smutty romance). I’m here to share my reviews for the books that I read. Share my thoughts about their authors and characters. I’m not here to blog about the technical aspect of it or give you spoilers (I hope not!) but more like give you insights about these various stories with the hopes that maybe I’ll be encouraging you to read them too. I hope you stayed long enough to get through this. If you did, then you’re the real MVP! Xoxo, The BookNut :)
