As expected of February, time passed by so quickly I didn’t even notice that it’s March already! I did my best to squeeze all my readings and *gasps* my Chinese Mandarin homework in 28 days. So far, I read 2 books out of the 4 books and 1 on the side lines! I am kind of happy with the results compared to last month.
The books are:
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman — 2 copies (movie tie-in and tpb/illustrated edition); a very magical and fun to read story that surely will engage the reader’s imagination. Neil Gaiman is truly the Prince of Short Stories! [“Every lover is, in his heart, a madman, and, in his head, a minstrel.” ― Neil Gaiman, Stardust]
- This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen — e-book copy; my second Sarah Dessen book. It was a gripping and moving story that will certainly touch the hearts of the readers. It was better than the first Dessen book I’ve read.
On the Side Lines:
- Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling — I am not really a big fan of memoirs and autobiographies but I have read ones and they certainly didn’t bore me at all. One example of those is this new book by Mindy Kaling. She’s absolutely adorable, funny, geeky, and most of all, inspiring. [“Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)” by Mindy Kaling]
Hello there, March! Another month has begun and another round of listing of books to take out of the never-ending, has-a-life-of-its-own TBR pile. I was still thinking of books to add but I changed my mind. I think 2-3 books per month will be all right! I don’t want to pressure myself anymore. Haha!
For this month I plan to read the following:
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak — this is for our monthly book discussion and will be lead by this good-looking man (aka crush-at-first-sight), Beejay Salting!
- The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien (the graphic novel edition) — I’ve already read The Hobbit years back. I borrowed my cousin’s copy of the graphic novel because I plan to re-read it before the film adaptation came out later last year but I stopped in the middle (coincidentally, where the movie was cut!). I plan to finish it this month so I can finally return the book. My cousin’s been bugging me every week!
- Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff (e-book copy; not in the picture) — very interesting book that has been raved among YA readers. Chosen by me and the staff from MangoJuiced.com for book review! YAY!
How about you? What are the books you plan to read this month?
