About

Von is the proud mind behind Mr. Book Wonder, who has an extraordinary love for books.

He traces his love for books back in high school. But it was not until when his best friend introduced him and loaned him her copy of Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz that reignited his passion for reading. He haven't looked back since and his love for books has span to contemporary fiction, dystopian fiction, fantasy, murder mystery, thriller, paranormal, romance, science fiction and many more.

He started Mr. Book Wonder in 2012 as an avenue for him to share his love for reading and connect with fellow book lovers.

He resides in a tropical island in the Philippines while trying to overcome his compulsive book buying disorder (and book sales). Currently, he is in college taking up Bachelor of Arts in Literature. He is hoping, someday, to have a career in writing or in publishing. But he'd be around this little corner of the interweb for now occasionally speaking in third person while conquering his mountain range of unread books.

You can find him lurking on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Goodreads whenever there is a reliable internet connection in his area.
