2015 Reading Challenge Update: A BOOK PUBLISHED THIS YEAR 7/50

For the book published this year, I picked Never Never (Never Never, #1) by Colleen Hoover. Why? Well, honestly, it was the book cover that made me list this book in my 2015 Reading Challenge list. I hope you will agree with me that the cover is indeed enticing. It raised my curiosity and after reading the novel […]

2015 Reading Challenge Update: A BOOK WITH BAD REVIEWS 6/50

I thought it will be hard to look for a book with bad review that is worth reading but as I researched to complete my 2015 reading list, I was quite surprised that there are a lot of celebrated books that had a lot of negative criticisms before. One of which is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott […]

2015 Reading Challenge Update: A BOOK FROM AN AUTHOR YOU LOVE THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ YET 5/50

It was during the latter part of 2014 when I stumbled into the Rosie Effect as I was looking for new authors to try. Well, I guess that day was my lucky day as after I read the story of Don Tillman, I automatically fell in love with its creator, Graeme Simsion. So for my 2015 […]

BOOK READS: A Review of Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

It will not leave you haunted. It is not pornographic. Yet it conveyed a powerful message. As I said in my recent post, I read Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson as part of the 2015 Reading Challenge that I joined. It is the BANNED book item on the list of 50 novels. Surprisingly, I don’t think this book deserves that ‘banned’ tag. Genre: […]

2015 Reading Challenge Update: A BANNED BOOK (4/50)

Because I want to be able to finish this reading challenge as early as possible, it took me two short nights to finish Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. This short yet controversial book is reportedly banned due to its considered ‘soft pornography’ content. Intrigued, I read this novel with anticipation for something gross, pornographic and offensive words about sex and […]

The ‘cheesiest’ day of the year is coming and to celebrate this year’s  season of love, I created a top 10 list of novels to check-out this Valentine’s! Because this is my list, these awesome novels are from my goodreads READ list. This means out of 103 books that I have read, I selected stories which I think […]

It was just yesterday when I posted my ‘almost’ 2015 Reading Challenge. To show you I am taking this seriously, here is an update! First, I crossed-out three items already, a book with a love triangle, a book set in high school and a book by an author you’ve never read before. Why did I […]
